I've never done drugs or gotten high unless you count snorting the addictive smell of these gorgeous leather wallets from Moose Brand. Hand me anything made of leather and I automatically bring it up to my nose for a sniff. Ahhhhh... There's something comforting about the smell of leather - good leather though, not weirdly [...]

I was dancing around the Net and decided to swing by the Colonel Littleton website to see if he had designed any new leather creations lately.

When it comes to my every day gear bag, I'm very picky. It has to be the right size, right weight, right capacity and it has to look good. I've been carrying a Timbuk2 messenger bag for as long as I can remember, so I figured it's time to broaden my horizons and try something [...]

I am an old U.S. Air Force guy from back in the day...like my father, grand father and many uncles before me. I often think that I missed my time in history. I hate to say it, but I soooo would trade all of today's tech/gadgets to be a P-51 or B-17 pilot. I grant [...]

I thought I would try something different this time around....instead of an invisibleSHIELD from ZAGG for the back of my new iPad, I wanted to try one of their LEATHERskins. While the aluminum back of the iPad feels great to the touch, I wanted to add a bit more protection without too much bulk or weight. [...]

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 [...]

After wanting one for what felt like forever, I finally bought an iPad 2. All I can say is that it was worth the wait. I am an unapologetic Apple fanboy (Mac user since 1988) and the iPad just makes me more impossible to be around when the discussion turns to tech. But despite the [...]
