Heming iPad Case

Would this be what Dr Jones uses for his iPad, the Heming leather iPad case?

on Friday, February 28th, 2014

If you have an iPad chances are you go to some lengths to protect your investment. But, if you are like me you don’t want a run of the mill, everyday, everyone else has one type of case. You want something a little different as well as something that is quality made. The Heming a Read More…

Whipping Post Vintage Messenger Bag review

on Thursday, August 29th, 2013

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 Read More…

Col. Littleton No. 1943 Navigator Briefcase Review

on Monday, May 14th, 2012

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 Read More…

ZAGG LEATHERskin for iPad Review

Wotancraft – Handmade Leather Camera Cases and Bags

United SGP Argos iPad 2 Case Review

on Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

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 Read More…

on Sunday, April 24th, 2011
Posted in: Gear, Reviews, Wallets

Early this year, I reviewed the Col. Littleton No. 50 Wallet for the iPhone which combined a leather sleeve to hold the iPhone, with a minimalist wallet.

on Monday, March 7th, 2011

I grant you Saddleback Leather’s Waterbag is not a gadget or tech device of any kind…..its not even specifically designed to carry around tech gear and/or their accessories. But it is an incredibly well made, stylish piece of travel gear, designed to (easily) withstand the test of decades of travel and the hard/rough-road taken. When Read More…
