HEX Convertible Laptop Briefcase review

By: Greg Carter
on Thursday, September 4th, 2014

I can work anywhere, as long as I have my laptop computer. Sure, with cloud access I can manage pretty well with just a smartphone – and even better with a tablet – but the laptop still makes it much easier to work and store or access everything I need. Therefore, I rarely travel veryRead More…

Posted in: Bags, Reviews

Carrying your gear to and from work or school every day requires a reliable bag. This is especially true if a laptop happens to be one of the items you carry. I’m partial to messenger style bags because they are roomy and casual. The problem is that they are not always the best type ofRead More…

GORUCK is all about rucks – commonly known as backpacks.  Their bread and butter are simple, yet thoughtfully-designed, nearly indestructible, made-in-USA backpacks like the classic GR1, along with other types of bags and accessories.  But one style of bag, one of the most requested since the company’s founding, has been conspicuously missing from GORUCK’s productRead More…

Booq Viper Courier 13 review

on Friday, October 11th, 2013

Ah, gadget lovers and their gear. Hauling around our stuff used to be such a hassle.  Today, it’s all about carrying multiple screens rather than a single screen and power adapter. Most of us carry a smartphone, as well as a tablet or phablet, and maybe a laptop. To accommodate the changes wrought by theRead More…

Posted in: Bags, Laptops and Gear, News

Women use the same gadgets as men, but some of us want a different type of gear bag to carry them in.  Typical unisex bags tend to skew “more manly”, and they often have a look that announces “expensive gear inside”.  Women may want a bag that looks more like a handbag to blend inRead More…

Why use a giant bag for a tiny laptop?

on Tuesday, July 30th, 2013
Posted in: Bags, Laptops and Gear, News

I have an 11″ MacBook Air, and it irks me to no end that most laptop bags that are supposedly designed for this tiny laptop will disclose in the fine print that they will accommodate up to a 15″ laptop.  I don’t want my Air floating around in a giant, heavy bag.  I don’t evenRead More…

WaterField Design HardCase review

on Monday, April 29th, 2013

Not often do manufacturers design a laptop bag with one specific brand or even model in mind. I am not talking about a form-fitted case or sleeve, but an actual bag created and/or named to hold a certain device. But the folks at WaterField Designs have done just that; the HardCase is aimed specifically at Apple’s 13″Read More…
