Minimalists will love these foldable bags that roll up into a palm sized bundle that you can hang from your keychain when you're not using them to hold your gear. For those of you who don't like to carry a messenger bag, backpack or duffle bag all the time, these foldable bags are perfect for [...]

how-i-outfit-my-iphone-6-plus-14

I had given a lot of thought about how I wanted to protect and carry my iPhone 6 Plus before I even received it.  I knew I wanted a case for it, but I didn't want it to cover up the beautiful gold color that I had been pining for since I saw it on [...]

Being in the travel business, I seem to find myself on the road more and more. Packing for long trips is fairly easy: I pull out the large suitcase, pack it up, and go. Packing for a short day trips or even short tours on my longer travels can be a real hassle. I tend [...]

I must admit. I really like having a bag. Whether a backpack, messenger bag, or sling bag. In high school I used three different backpacks in a school year. I own two large travel skate backpacks, both the same brand and model. I couldn't choose between the color designs so I bought both of them. [...]

When we're out and about, most Gadgeteers carry a few things: smartphone, wallet, keys, tablet. Maybe a tin of mints. Oh, sure, if we're gone for the day, we'll have a bag of other stuff including power adapters, charging cables and batteries, energy bars, and enough EDC stuff to survive a moon landing. But when [...]

As our devices have shrunk in recent years, so, too, have carrying cases. Sling bags, messenger bags, and even the trusty backpack are slimmer, more focused on those slimmer devices, and more attuned to organization and ease of access, rather than capacity. Blue Flame, a fairly new entrant into the market place, has developed an [...]

saddlebackleather_drybag-1b

Several years ago, I reviewed Saddleback Leather Company's Waterbag, an excellent piece of hardy luggage I use to this day. While I do not use it everyday, my wife and I often use it when going on weekend or overnight trips together. It is perfectly sized for a couple of days worth of clothes for [...]

The floor is a dirty place to set your bag down.  It doesn't matter if you have an inexpensive fabric bag or a designer leather bag, you don't want the bottom getting dirty nor do you want it to pick up the germs and other yucky stuff - that some people call bagteria - on [...]

I recently featured a minimalist shoulder bag in a news post that ended up sparking a fun conversation about "fanny packs". That post prompted me to go searching for similar bags and as a result, I stumbled upon the Austrailian based Happy Cow store. They carry a lot of what they call hip bags. If you google what [...]

If you are more than 30 years old, you will remember the often ridiculed hip bag, or as we call them here in the US, the fanny pack. I apologize to our AU, NZ and UK readers... They were small zippered pouches designed to wear around your waist to provide quick access to necessary items. [...]

During my tenure here at The Gadgeteer, I have had the good fortune to review many high-quality bags and accessories from around the world, many of them leather and handmade by artisans from Italy to Argentina. I have taken a critical look at so many bags, I like to think of myself as a connoisseur of [...]

LederMann1

Ah, leather! One of the oldest and most durable materials humans have found to use, yet it still causes us to react warmly when we feel the texture or smell the scent. Whether it reminds us of new school shoes as a kid or that folio we were given at graduation, we all have a [...]

LederMann-Briefcase-1

Being a techie junky, I'm always on the lookout for a good satchel or briefcase-type bag to carry all of my gear.  I'm a computer technician, so something sturdy and roomy with lots of pockets is something I always need for work. I was given the chance to review the Bridle Leather Briefcase from LederMann [...]

LG EDC-1

When Julie dropped her latest EDC on us, it was interesting to see everything she carries on a daily basis. (My shoulder hurts just viewing it.) When she asked us to share our EDC's with everyone, I ended up being in what I found to be a not so unique situation; I work from home, [...]

Henty Wingman review

Hentywingman1

When you need to travel with a clean shirt or suit - whether it be by bike, walking or airplane - the big problem is keeping your clothes neat and pressed.  Whether I've folded them into a carry bag or put them into a traditional suit bag, my first job when I get to my [...]

cherryonthebag

I knew this was going to be an odd Kickstarter project the moment I saw the company name - CHERRY on the bag. I expected the product to have a cherry logo or at least be Red in color. It has neither... What is it? CHERRY on the bag is a collection of Black full-grain calfskin [...]

baglight

It's always a pain to try to find small items at the bottom of your bag when it's dark out. The Bag Light solves that problem with a super bright LED that is activated with a squeeze. It is made of soft silicone rubber and easily fastens and unfastens with a magnet. Attach it to the [...]
