Shoulder bag

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 [...]

One year ago I posted my review of Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag. Although I liked the bag, I didn't make it my main bag until March of this year. Since then it has become my favorite gear bag that I carry every day. Peak Design followed up their successful Everyday Messenger Bag Kickstarter campaign [...]

A few weeks back, I reviewed the Collins vertical iPad/laptop bag from Brenthaven that I'd bought a while back for my iPad Air 2. I was looking for a similar bag for my iPad Pro. They now make one in that size, but I was hesitant. The two things I had mentioned that I would [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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” [...]

Henty Tube Backpack Review

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 [...]
