Mission Workshop is known for all of their great ages, from messengers to traditional backpacks, but if you’re into carrying a lot of things, or if you are heavy into photography but looking for a great bag, you should check out the Rhake Waterproof bag. Upon first look, you can tell it’s not your traditional camera bag. For one, it’s not super bulky like the competition which is something I…
When you hear the phrase “douche bag”, your mind might automatically conjure up the slang definition of “an obnoxious, offensive, or disgusting person.” Set that aside for now, okay? For this review, Douchebags is a Norwegian brand of smarter travel gear, and the Douchebags Base 15L Daypack is one of the nicest and most stylish backpacks I’ve yet tried.
Raina and I are getting ready for a trip to the Galápagos Islands next month. We are doing our best to pack wisely, and that begins with our backpacks. The Timbuk2 Lightweight Launch Backpack is the first of two backpacks we’ve received for review; the $129.00 backpack is light and ready to go.
If you’re looking for some last-minute gifts for Mother’s Day, instead of that last bad card sitting on the shelf, you should consider Moshi. With everything from battery packs, Bluetooth headphones to my Mom’s favorite Aria Tote, Moshi’s products are a great alternative for that Hallmark card and flowers you typically get the special lady in your life.
Incase’s backpack are highly touted as some of the best bags on the market today. One of their highest selling backpacks happens to be the larger ICON backpack we reviewed a few months ago. So when the company announced they would be making a Woolenex version of the popular bag, I had to get my hands on one.
Flowfold products are made for life’s everyday adventures. Their mission is to celebrate adventure, support their community, promote environmental responsibility, and build a sustainable business. Using reclaimed materials, they build bags, wallets, and more that come with a lifetime guarantee. Flowfold was kind enough to send their Denizen Limited 18L Tote Backpack and Conductor Limited Duffle for review.
If Frodo were equipped with the Peak Design Everyday Backpack, the journey to Mordor would have been much easier. Maybe the backpack wouldn’t have done anything to guard against Orcs, however, the endlessly configurable bag would have done wonders to carry the weight of Frodo’s responsibility. Starting at $259.95, the Everyday Backpack is worthy of all of life’s adventures.

Earlier this year I reviewed eBags Professional Slim Junior Laptop Backpack, and I loved everything from its minimalist approach to carrying your everyday items, to its unique straps, zippers and overall comfort. But for those times where I carry a bit more than just my iPad Pro and a battery pack, I wanted a bit more.
I had a DSLR. It was great, but I sold it. I had a small, mirrorless camera. It was awesome, but I sold it. Honestly, as a blogger and casual photographer, the iPhone’s camera is more than enough for my needs. To get the most out of iPhone-ography, however, you need to carry some accessories. Enter the Waterfield Camera Bag.
I reviewed the Lander TIMP 20 a while back, and it was one of the best I’ve ever used; sleek, water-resistant, incredibly light, and durable! Although Lander makes other accessories, I can verify that their backpack game is strong; that’s why I am excited about the new Lander Carry System, which is almost fully funded on Kickstarter.
Messenger bags are a simple concept. You have some sort of pouch-like item attached to a shoulder strap that you wear over one shoulder or across your body. Pockets, design, color all add to and change the basic idea, but they’re all similar at the end of the day. It’s the details that make a bag go from eh to WOW, and Toffee nails that with their Osaka Satchel.
If you tend to have a lot to carry with you on a trip, and want to be able to access everything easily, look no further than the Travelpro Executive Choice 2 Checkpoint Friendly Backpack. Currently, on sale for $189.99, I’ve been using the Travelpro Executive Choice 2 Checkpoint Friendly Backpack almost exclusively as my carry-on bag for all of my summer travel, and trust me when I say it…
As a huge fan of backpacks, it’s no surprise I’ve had my eyes on Oppermann London’s collection of products. This year the company revealed its name change by rebranding as Carl Friedrik, and what better way to make a statement than releasing awesome accessories. This month the company released their Collection 3, inspired by the company’s new identity.
Solo is a popular backpack company that’s bags are made to stand the test of time, all while being functional for whatever you use it for being traveling to work, school, or even going out of town. The company sent over their SOLO Gramercy Collection Lexington Backpack which has become one of my favorite do-all bags at the moment.
The tagline for the Solo Rival Backpack should be “There’s a place for everything,” because that’s exactly how I felt when I took it on a trip recently. Though plain on the outside, the inside of this bag offers a slew of organizational features waiting to be utilized by the tech-enthusiast traveler. At $79.99, the Solo Rival offers serious value.
I love Waterfield products and am always positively inclined toward them from the start. After using the Waterfield Syde for MacBook Pro for the past weeks, I’m happy to say that the company that makes some of my favorite bags has continued to do just that. The Syde is a fantastic bag for those who are looking to travel light.
One thing about commuting with a backpack to work daily, or traveling, in general, is overall comfort. There are plenty of bags on the market that promise you the ability to carry multiple items but at the expense of feeling as though you have textbooks weighing down your shoulders. That’s not the case with the eBags Professional Slim Junior Backpack.
If you’re a fan of backpacks, but tend to travel, or even walk around in public but worry about your personal belongings, there is a bag that can completely eliminate the thought of someone possibly standing behind you, grabbing your belongings. That bag is called the RiutBag R15 by Riut.

Every year, I find myself attempting to make the bag I carry lighter. The gadgets change frequently, but I try to keep the bags the same. In 2016 I used the Incase Icon bag to transport all of my tech gear, so when Incase sent over their Incase ICON Lite, I wondered if it would lighten my load? Let’s see!
