Even though I’ve reviewed a few backpacks to hold my gadgets and stuff, this is the first bonafide suitcase I’ve reviewed. I don’t travel much for my job, but when my wife and I travel, our cheap carryons are nothing but a pain—and kinda embarrassing when seen at an airport. So when the very attractive ec-bc… Read More

Over Memorial Day weekend, I went on a trip to visit the in-laws, and thought it would be a perfect chance to try out some new luggage. This time, however, I wanted to forego checking a bag and rely solely on carry-on luggage for a week long trip. Standard Luggage Co. offered their carry-on backpack to… Read More

The best part of traveling is seeing new places, meeting new people and eating new foods. The worst part about traveling is packing. Especially unpacking. In the past, it's been a big hassle to our old luggage because it was like a set of Russian nested dolls, where the largest suitcase held the next largest suitcase… Read More

I avoid checking bags in while flying whenever possible.  Additional bag fees?  No, it's the hassle of waiting for checked bags at the carousel, the risk of lost luggage, and the tendency to overpack.  I tend to travel with lots of loose items (charging cables, wall warts, adapters), so what if I could find a… Read More

Whenever my family and I go on vacation we run into the same problem; there is never enough room in the hotel dresser to store all of our clothes. There are four of us and we usually end up "fighting" over who gets enough drawers. Inevitably, clothes end up scattered in drawers, in suitcases, and… Read More

Have you ever stood at the baggage conveyor after a flight and wondered which black rolling bag was yours? I sure have. We have half a dozen in the attic in various sizes and weights, so when our Benevolent Gadgeteer Overlord offered the Genius Pack, I wondered if it might somehow be different. I had… Read More

A decent set of luggage is almost paramount these days when doing extensive or long travel. While polycarbonate luggage is usually a little more durable and lighter, it often only comes in a clam shell design (basically the suitcase zippers down the middle and opens with two equal size sides). Fabric luggage usually has a… Read More

When you have a place for everything, it's easier to see when everything is in its place.  And you'll be less likely to reach to destination and find that you've forgotten something very important - like your pants for the week.   Rise Gear bags incorporate a patent-pending collapsible shelving system that makes packing a… Read More

No matter how carefully you fold it, your suit is likely to arrived rumpled and wrinkled when you pack it in a suitcase or a traditional garment bag.  Garment bags are usually large and unwieldy, too, and often earn you angry glares from fellow travelers when you try to carry them on the plane.  With… Read More

There are only a couple of gadget specific TV shows that I know of and Shark Tank is my favorite. I always love it when I'm watching the show and someone comes on to pitch a product that we've written about or even reviewed in the past. It's fun to see people who I've interacted… Read More
