Lowepro-DroneGuard-BP450AW-1

Ready to set down some serious cash on a drone? Most models retail for about $1,000, and whether they are on the ground or in the air, they are delicate gadgets. After reading Dennis's review of the Lowepro RidgeLine Pro, I clicked over to the Lowepro page and saw they recently introduced this beast: the DroneGuard BP [...]

I really enjoy traveling, and have a collection of items I want quick access to when on the go. For this reason, I'm always on the lookout for a really great backpack. I have previously reviewed a couple of great backpacks, but I'd really like to have one for work gadgets, around the house gadgets, [...]

After my first child was born I went out and purchased a DSLR camera. My wife and I weren't impressed with the pictures our pocket camera was taking and wanted to properly document the childhood of Earth's future ruler. After my second child was born, we purchased extra batteries and memory cards. We needed the [...]

betabrand-underthejackpack

Look, I like big ol', voluminous backpacks for hauling my gear as much as the next Gadgeteer. But sometimes you only need to carry minimal gear and want to be subtle and stealthy, like a gear ninja. For those missions, the crowdfunded Betabrand Under-the-Jack Pack might be essential. Betabrand designed this ultra-slim backpack to literally [...]

This uniquely designed backpack has a foam-lined pocket that will carry a 15-inch laptop (the pocket is located against your back) and has [...]

As a collector of all things gadget, I often find myself in need of a great backpack to help organize my devices while on the go. Recently, I was given the opportunity to review an extremely unique backpack, the WolffePack Metro. What sets the Metro apart from other backpacks is its ability to temporarily detach [...]

Whether you are a seasoned athlete or a weekend warrior, chances are that you use something to carry your gear around. And that means everything from a school backpack to a duffle bag, to yes, I've seen it, a grocery bag. But I'm not going to criticize how you carry your stuff, to each their [...]

The Whipping Post roll top backpack is a nice looking bag reminiscent of days gone by. This backpack is made of brown polished leather with a vintage look and feel that reminds me of walking to school a hundred years ago. The rustic bag is large enough to hold a laptop along with your daily gear. Let’s take a [...]

ibackpack-ibackpack-1

We live in a world where there is a gadget for everything. Need extra power, get a power bank. Need portable internet, use a hotspot. Always losing your things, grab a Bluetooth tracker. Do you like music on the go, get a Bluetooth speaker. Imagine if there was a device that could do all that? [...]

Backpacks are a must have accessory when hiking and camping. They are constructed to let you easily transport all your important gear while exploring the great outdoors. But one of the main problems with traditional backpacks is that you have to take them off in order to get access to your stuff. Paxis has designed [...]

When I travel, I have several gadgets I bring with me. For the past few years I have been using a beat-up backpack I purchased a decade ago, before tablets and smartphones were commonplace. While my old backpack got the job done, it wasn't built to organize and contain today's modern devices. I'd been looking [...]

Recently, I moved back to having a MacBookPro again. I had moved to an iMac, since most of my mobile stuff was being done on the iPad. Then work got me a second iMac for a lab/testing machine, and my desk got too crowded. But, of course, that means I now "have" to have a [...]

Backpacks are handy when traveling. They allow you to carry things on your back, leaving your hands free to pull other luggage. Better still, the TSA or security checkpoint friendly backpacks make getting through security with your laptop and other devices quick and painless (relatively speaking). With these backpacks, the laptop portion opens so that [...]

Henty Tube Backpack Review

Hentytube

Those that have read my previous bag posts will realize that my main love of bags centres around messenger style bags.  That was until I started bike riding.  While a messenger is fine for short-haul commutes, for me they're not stable or ergonomic enough for much longer rides.  As my fitness increases I find myself [...]

booq Boa Flow Graphite review

booq_flowgraphite-profile

Back in 2010, I reviewed the booq Boa Flow M backpack after decades of carrying a messenger type bag. Since then, I regularly use the Boa Flow M when I need to carry a majority of my tech/travel gear or am going out into the damp Seattle weather. I am surprised by just how much I like and [...]

This post is brought to you by eBay. All opinions are 100% mine. My daughter started college this year, and we've discovered the type of backpack she used in high school isn't working for her new environment.  In high school, she needed a giant bag to carry a ton of books.  She also had a [...]

I don't even like backpacks, but the Ruck Sack from Loyal Stricklin is so lovely to look at that I can picture myself hiking picturesque trails with it strapped on my back. These bags are handmade in a studio which is located in an historic train depot in Alabama. The ruck sack is made of [...]

modernindustry-linkbackpack

To me the best backpack designs are simple and streamlined, like the Link backpack from Modern Industry.  Its slim, rectangular shape allows vertical stacking of contents to keep the load close to the wearer's body, while its lay-flat zipper design opens wide for easy loading and unloading of its 21 L capacity. (In fact, these [...]
