I have a nifty little gadget for avid photographers that have a less than stellar memory. If you’ve ever looked back at your old photos and wondered where you were when you shot them, the PhotoFinder Mini from ATP will cause you to wonder no more.
News, reviews and articles about travel gear and accessories.
Callpod has recently released a dual device rechargeable battery charging system called the Fueltank. The Fueltank can charge two mobile devices simultaneously and act as a through-put charger when you are near a electrical outlet. This mobile charging system utilizes the same adapters as their ChargePod charging system. While the ChargePod system is able to …
In January I reviewed Tom Bihnâ€™s Aeronaut and a gazillion and one little packing cubes, pockets and organizer pouches. As you may have gathered from the review, I was very keen on the packing cubes. Over the last year Iâ€™ve used these accessories, in many combinations on every trip Iâ€™ve done. I also use them to corral cables in my desk drawer.
If you are a frequent traveler that sometimes finds it difficult to relax with the roar of airplane, bus or car engine noise, I have a possible solution for you. It’s the PlaneQuiet Platinum active noise reduction headset from Outside The Box. These full-size over the ear headphones provide up to 18 decibels of active noise reduction. Let’s check them out…
As I read Julie’s review of the Timbuk2 messenger bag, I couldn’t help but think of my own choice in gear-hauling. The ‘2’ is a fine bag and the design possibilities are unlimited. I looked at such bags while I was shopping for a new hauler. I knew I didn’t want just a backpack or rucksack; they get tangled on furniture as you walk by and they are too big for everyday carry. I need room for a book, a sweater and a water bottle, not a sleeping bag and a tent.
Last October I received a pile of cases and accessories from Tom Bihn. Over the years Iâ€™d reviewed several Tom Bihn products, all bought with my own hard earned cash – no review samples. Tom Bihnâ€™s products are very good value I think, but a little expensive. When reviewing a case that represents days of toil in your day job, even the most tolerant of reviewers is likely to be a little more harsh. Tom Bihnâ€™s stuff has always come out shining – not perfect, but always well worth the money.
If you are a gear freak like I am, it’s not just the gadgets that excite you, but all types of little cases and containers too. That’s why I was drawn to the colorful Keep2go Travel Tube Containers from Blue Desert when I first saw them.
Are you the type of person that prides themselves as always being prepared for any situation? You know the type, they pack 5 pairs of socks and underwear for an overnight trip. They carry a first aid kit in their car, stow extra house keys at work, etc. Well, if you fall into this category, then I think you will be very interested in the FlareSafe flashlight from FlareBrands Limited. What’s that? You say you already carry a flashlight with you? Ok, I knew that… But does your flashlight double as a smoke detector and a distress alarm? I didn’t think so!
Although I’ve personally travelled outside the United States only once so far, I can totally see the value of the gadget I’m going to tell you about today. The Universal AC Travel Adapter from USB Geek, is a nifty little module that will allow you to use your favorite electrical devices in other countries.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I don’t carry a purse. I do carry a gear bag to work every day, but when I go out for lunch or go shopping, I don’t take it along with me. In the winter time, this isn’t a problem because I tend to load my …
