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 [...]

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 [...]

Henty Wingman

Here's the sort of stuff I like - equipment designed right here in my home town of Hobart, Tasmania. :)  Don't you hate it when you have to  travel, and inevitably at the other end that shirt or suit you so carefully packed in your case, bag or suit bag needs ironing?  Well the Henty [...]

Earlier this year, I reviewed Col. Littleton's No. 1943 Navigator Briefcase, which I continue to use daily to carry around my gear. There is not a week that goes by that I do not receive at least one compliment about how nice/gorgeous my bag is. That being said, the Colonel has recently announced a sibling [...]

At least till now. Their new Simple Backpack features lighter weight softer leather and is currently available in a 14" size with a 17" size available [...]

wotancraft

In my opinion, Gadgets + Leather = Bliss. If you feel the same way, then you're going to love browsing through the Wotancraft web site of truly handmade leather watch straps, camera straps and camera bags. The prices may be a little spendy (the camera case/holster you see pictured above is $169USD), but knowing these [...]

The bag hanger is heavy-duty, yet easy to open for adding new bags.

I really love things that allow me to use tech in relation to other things in my life, like my dog, Jack. Tom Bihn, a premier bag maker in Seattle, has a great specialty bag called the Citizen Canine which can help you keep all your "dog stuff" in one place.

little-swift-bihn-bag-1

When I think of Tom Bihn bags, I think of laptop and gear bags.  There are several Tom Bihn bags in my house, including an 8 or 9 year old Empire Builder that has been used every day since its purchase and still looks almost like new.  I don't typically think of knitting or purses [...]

You may have noticed that I seem to have a lot of bags and purses.  Some of them are cheap and some are expensive, but I want to keep all of them clean and nice-looking for as long as possible.  I do not want to set my bag in the floor in public places, where [...]

New from STM is their Velo laptop messenger bag.  Packed with lots of organizational features, yet spacious enough to just toss stuff in.  The Velo could be a solid daily commute bag for your laptop, tablet, accessories, jacket, shoes, hat, raincoat, keys, journal, pens, water bottle, lunch, manicure set...  OK, maybe it won't hold ALL [...]
