Shoulder bag

VitesseDuffle_1

Every adventure has its mundane aspects. Packing and getting there qualifies as mundane, if not downright unpleasant. It becomes even more of a challenge when strict weight and size limits are imposed as on my recent trip to the Rio Parismina Lodge in the jungles of Costa Rica, for a week of tarpon fishing.   The WaterField Designs [...]

CaseLogic-LoDo-Satchel-Review-01

I simply love nice bags almost as much as I love technology.  I need a good bag for work, but also for the weekends, since I love to load up my Macbook Pro, a camera and various notebooks depending on what I'm working on.  I had the opportunity to review the Case Logic LoDo satchel, so [...]

I've given up on any hope for a paperless future, so I might as well carry all the documents I need for my day job in style along with the electronic devices I need.  For that, the Staad Attaché from Waterfield Designs suits my requirements.  It's built to accommodate the iPad Pro, but until I win [...]

I am a bagoholic.  I have two closets filled with bags from waist packs, day bags, shoulder bags to camera backpacks.  Some of them date back a ways...I still have and use both a Roadwired Pod and Podzilla!  I am always on the lookout for that next bag that will hold what I need when [...]

Incase-ReformSling1

After several weeks of using the new Incase Reform Sling bag, I am conflicted by its unique design, its great organizational features, and its limitations because of the above.  The Reform sling bag was specifically designed to hold the new 12” MacBook.  While I do not have one of these MacBooks (I have a 13.3” [...]

Keep Pursuing's new KP Sling Bag is a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign that launched today for what they are calling an Everyday Adventure bag. I call it a cross between a wallet and a messenger bag because it's designed to be part of your EDC - Every Day Carry. Note: Images can be clicked to view [...]

Henty Tube Backpack Review

Hentytube

Those that have read my previous bag posts will realize that my main love of bags centres around messenger style bags.  That was until I started bike riding.  While a messenger is fine for short-haul commutes, for me they're not stable or ergonomic enough for much longer rides.  As my fitness increases I find myself [...]

Although I carry gear, I don't carry a typical gear bag.  I don't go to an office, so I don't need a bag big enough to hold a laptop and other job necessities.  I just need a bag big enough to carry what I'll need while I'm out.  I have some bags big enough to [...]

The Colonel Littleton No. 37 Satchel in American buffalo is a beautiful bag bringing Old World quality, artistry, and charm to modern times. As the title states, this eye-catching bag is made from buffalo leather instead of the more classic cowhide. The combination of both design and rugged, marbled leather makes the No.37 Satchel unique to [...]

Most of the charging bags we've featured on The Gadgeteer have been small clutches, just big enough to hold your phone and maybe a credit card or two and not much else.  They might work as a "go to lunch" bag, but you'll probably need to put the charging case in a bigger bag that [...]

The Colonel Littleton No. 43 Mailbag Briefcase is a gorgeous shoulder bag reminiscent of the mail pouches carried by pony express riders from days before email and the internet. This bag is made in Tennessee of vintage brown polished leather with a very soft dry-milled leather flap that has brass shield on embossed with the bag's serial [...]

The duffel bag has been done and re-done since it became a staple of military luggage---and later gym bags---forever ago. Crowdfunded Bomber Barrel was designed to improve on the classic. While it retains the recognizable cylindrical shape of the duffel bag, it also includes a combination of several useful and durable features: lightweight (390 grams) and [...]

The Phorce Pro is a briefcase that converts into a backpack or messenger bag. That in itself is not unique; we've seen numerous bags that have this ability to convert from one form to another. What sets the Phorce Pro apart from those bags is that it has a built in rechargeable 26,000 mAH lithium-ion [...]
