Pad & Quill Field Bag review

on Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Pad & Quill have been creating handmade tech-accessories with old-world craftsmanship for many years now. Kari and Brian (Mr. and Mrs. PQ) pride themselves on not creating “cheap, mass produced crap” but incredibly well constructed items they would be proud to give their “discriminating” friends and family…and thankfully the rest of us as well. Recently, theyRead More…


MIXBAG modular shoulder bag review

on Saturday, March 29th, 2014

Bags for this and bags for that. I have specialized bags and cases for almost all of my daily use items. The problem with all these bags and cases is that they lack versatility. While some have the ability to carry other item besides the items it was designed for, there is usually no easyRead More…

STM, an Australian company that makes very nice bags, has been featured here before. This time, I get to review one of their full-sized laptop bags- the medium-sized, vertical shoulder bag.

When you are going through airport security, what’s the most important thing?  I mean, aside from making sure your socks don’t have holes in them, that is.  You want to get through it fast, right?  And it sure is a hassle having to remove your laptop from its bag and then put it back inRead More…

As soon as I opened the Skooba box I fell in love with the color of my bag! I know that sounds like a girl thing but let’s face it-I’m a girl! If you want something that sounds like a guy thing, how about my 80 year old father who said- “It has lots ofRead More…

Saddleback Leather Company Explorer’s Satchel Review

Come on, I can’t be the only one. I remember the original movie and falling in love with the
character. Traveling to exotic locations, searching for treasures, yeah, that’s me in a nutshell!
Ok, not quite… But I do live in Indiana and… ok, the similarity ends there. Or it did till now.
Now I am one step closer to fulfilling that fantasy because I have an Explorer’s Satchel from
Saddleback Leather Company.

Saddleback Leather Company Briefcase Review

on Friday, August 31st, 2007

I love leather gear bags. Not the froo-froo kind though. I’m talking about the more rugged style of leather bags. The kind that Indiana Jones might appreciate if he was a real person.
