I was introduced to Colonel Littleton products by Dave Rees who has reviewed a few of the men's line of exquisite handcrafted leather bags here on the Gadgeteer. I had the opportunity last year to review the Colonel Littleton Bentley Tote which was absolutely fabulous. Now I've been given the privilege to review another of… Read More

Colonel Littleton creates some of the finest bags I have ever had the privilege to carry my gear in. My 1943 Navigator bag has traveled the world with me and continues to be my EDC bag. It is a true workhorse and nearly bulletproof, receiving regular compliments as it grows old with me. But when the… Read More

I have lost track of the number of leather wallets I have gone through over the years.  I am sure the same thing has happened to you... at some point they all fall apart at the seems.  This problem inspired American Benchcraft to create a line of leather products that are crafted not with stitched… Read More

I had a chance to review a great little wallet from A-SLIM, the Sapphire Black Chikara. After using the wallet in real world situations I can say that this wallet is exceeding my expectations when it comes to the smaller slimmer thin billfold wallets. First of all, the wallet's name, Chikara, is the Japanese word for… Read More

Wallet phone cases have been around for a while. Not the slip-a-few-cards-in-the-back cases, but the fold-over, cover-the-screen type wallet cases. Most have an elastic band to hold them closed, but they are all fraught with difficulties, not the least of which is holding your entire wallet up to your ear during a phone call. Enter… Read More

I received news from Brian Holmes of Pad & Quill that they have two new "slim leather bags for the modern gentleman". When I read the title of his email and then saw the images of his bags, I was a little miffed because I don't see how these bags are for men only. ;)… Read More

Saddleback Leather Company has just announced a new line of their very popular rugged premium leather bags. They are calling it the Ugly & Limited line, but I disagree with the ugly part. These bags are made with the same quality materials and craftsmanship as Saddleback's other bags, but they feature leather with cattle brands… Read More

Ah, leather! Such a nice feel, and so easy on the eyes. I have always preferred it to the various synthetics. I especially like the finishes that are less polished and lend themselves to natural wear and "character building." Recently, Mujjo has expanded their line of cases to include Apple's newest iPhones, and they offered… Read More

It's called the Front Pocket Pouch and it's being described as a smaller version of the Saddleback Leather messenger bag. It's been designed for those times when you don't need to carry your laptop, but is large enough that it will fit an iPad mini and your other small EDC items. This small uni-sex bag… Read More

I love my smartphone, but when it comes to to-do lists, bullet journals, diaries and other note taking, I prefer a good old fashioned paper notebook. Putting a pen to paper and watching a notebook become worn as it fills with info, ideas and memories makes me smile. I'm kind of a notebook addict and… Read More

I can't believe it's been 13 years since I reviewed the original WaterField Cozmo bag. I carried that bag for a couple of years and then Jeanne carried it for a few more. I still have it somewhere in my magic closet o'bags and I bet it still looks just as good as it did… Read More

I can never decide if I want a case on my iPad Air or not.  It's thin and wonderful to hold without a case, but you're at risk of damaging your tablet without one.  The Sena Vettra ST Leather Case provides a functional case that manages to remain slim. The Vettra ST comes nicely packaged… Read More
