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 […]
I sometimes have back pain and carrying heavy gear bags often makes things worse. I’m constantly on the lookout for a sturdy, protective bag that’s big enough for my computer must-haves but won’t add a lot of weight itself. We’ve used neoprene lunch bags from Built NY for years. These lunch bags wear like iron, […]
All types of people love Molekine notebooks – writers, artists, tech-lovers, and everyone between. Moleskine eventually realized that people even wanted a way to make their electronic devices look like their notebooks, and they issued official covers for iPad, iPhone, and Kindle. Now they are introducing gear bags that are inspired by their iconic notebooks. […]
We Gadgeteers have a, shall we say…fondness.. for our gadgets, am I right? Rhetorical question ’round these parts. Some cling to a mere handy handful of essential EDC, others find a BSA-like array necessary for preparedness. Some commute via public transportation through vast, sprawling urban metropoli for a day at the grind, others trek stoically […]
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. It’s a great looking bag and I could not wait to try it out!
If you want a laptop bag that doesn’t look like everybody else’s bag, check out Gnana handmade bags.

The laptop bags […]
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 in […]

Ok. Anyone who has read the Gadgeteer knows that I love laptop bags. I have no idea why…some people collect stamps… I collect laptop bags. I have two sizes of computers… my large Dell and my 10.2 inch Acer Aspire One Netbook. I’m a writer so I lug my laptops around with me everywhere and […]
About six years ago, my employer presented me with a laptop to use as my primary work computer. It was handed to me along with an ugly little basic black laptop bag, and soon I was carrying this bag with me to and from work every day. It wasn’t long before I abandoned that bag […]
First off, I REALLY love Saddleback Leather Company‘s motto of ‘They’ll fight over it when you’re dead’. That is saying something in today’s disposable society; where electronics are engineered to last a few years before their battery dies, motherboard fries, or they simply self destruct. Saddleback believes their products are so well made they guarantee […]

The “Classic Messenger 2010″ has added functional features which some thought were lacking in the previous version. As in the past, it is available in two styles, pre-built and custom. Both […]
I wouldn’t consider myself someone who collects lots of tools. But I do have enough tools that it has gotten a little out of control in our garage. It has reached a point where I have to question myself about where that tool is that I am looking for. So I jumped at the chance […]
LapDome Inc. makes a line of the most unusual laptop bags I’ve seen. These bags, when collapsed, look like more regular laptop bags. Some are padded and used to carry your laptop; some are not padded and are meant to be carried in your regular laptop bag as an accessory. All pop open to make a […]
More then just funny capitalization (yes, that’s really how they spell it) Kamiliun uses a modular system to create a flexible backpack/bag system from mix-and-match components. I received the Chicken or the Egg package consisting of a ‘letterbox’ back on the left, above, designed to carry a laptop or other large slab-like objects, and a […]
Aerovation is among a small group of companies that has been certified by the TSA to manufacture and market approved cases that allow you to not have to take your laptop out for the trip through the x-ray machine. How do these bags work, and are they worth the effort? We’ll see.
UNIEA manufactures cases of nearly every shape and size, engineered to protect your valuable tech-equipment from the dangers of the daily grind. Their Omniverse 13.3-inch Macbook (or similar sized laptop) Universal Tote (and the matching hard drive case) are no different.
On the heels of the itsy-bitsy T-Pack for netbooks comes Timbuk2‘s new Breakout Messenger, a generously-sized bag designed for your hulking 17″ laptop. A cross between their Outtawhack Daypack and the Commute Messenger, this seems to be an answer to the critique that even the Large Commute was just not quite large enough for a […]
My daughter needed a laptop bag that would carry her Dell 14” Inspiron 1420 laptop and a few essentials. She doesn’t take her computer to school, so she had no need for a huge bag with room for books, notebooks, and the like. She just needed the laptop, power brick, and a few other basics […]
