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!
Moshi’s Arcus backpack is perfect for all of your gadgets and gear, and if you’re a photographer, this may be the camera bag you need to start 2017 with.
When I used to commute to work, I would frequently take my work laptop in a backpack and another bag of clothes for the gym. The AER Duffel Pack tries to solve this problem by combining a gym duffel and a laptop backpack. It will not work, though unless you are lucky enough to have a 15″ MacBook or smaller.
HP has some new items out — just in time for the holidays — so you can send your favorite college student back to school with the gear they need to stay productive and at the top of their class!
We wrote about the Booq Cobra Pack two years ago; that backpack turned out to be so popular that Booq has updated it with even more options and refinements.
Alright, I’ll have to admit, I have a love for a good backpack. I’ve used messenger bags for my daily commute, but I have a fond love for a bag I can place on my shoulders and be on the go with. The issue with many of those bags is that they are entirely too bulky to bother with, or…
I recently reviewed the commuter series pack from Exos-Gear and have enjoyed using it with my every day computer gear. The company also has a tactical style backpack called the Bravo Series, which retails for $37.95. While I had planned on using the backpack as my new shooting bag, I actually found an unintended use that works out great.
As technology becomes more mobile, options to carry our gear becomes important. Personally, I prefer carrying backpacks. Not sure if its because I work in a school setting, or I just like the style. I recently was able to try out the Commuter Series from Exos-Gear ($29.95). I filled it with some gear and headed out. Let’s take a look!
Finding the perfect backpack can seem like a never-ending search, but Lander has created an almost perfect backpack with their TIMP 20 Liter; let me explain.
I’m fairly lucky with what I need to carry to work; most days it’s just a tablet, bluetooth keyboard, wallet, keys and lunch. Nothing too fancy. When you throw a computer or more peripherals in the mix, though, you need a bigger bag. Moshi Urbana Briefcase insures you can still lug all your stuff without looking boring!
I’m always on the lookout for a fashionable backpack that is comfortable to wear, holds all my gear, and that doesn’t weigh too much when empty (it really matters when you’re packing a lot of gear). The Moshi Helios came in right before my trip to the IFA Global Press Conference, so it got a trial by fire.
Yes, Waterfield, one of my favorite bag and case companies, has done it again. The Waterfield Staad Attaché takes its cues from the Staad Backpack Judie and I reviewed some time back and brings its amazing design features to an attaché case that is small and easy to carry but large enough for your iPad Pro or MacBook Pro 13″.
I have a new favorite bag for days when I travel light. If I only have my iPhone, headphones, an external battery, and either my 13″ MacBook Pro or iPad Pro with the ZAGG Slimbook I am currently reviewing, I take my gear along in the KNOMO Kinsale Soft Leather Messenger Bag. Its as gorgeous as it is simple!
The Cobra Brief by Booq is my favorite 15” MacBook Pro-toting briefcase for traveling. I’ve used it twice so far on plane trips from Newark to both Chicago and Orlando and it’s been very comfortable to carry with me, stow under the seat in front of me, or in the overhead luggage compartment. The Cobra Brief is available for $295!
One of my issues with many messenger bags and backpacks is that, even before you put anything into them, they weigh a ton. Then, after you stow your gear inside, they feel like you are carrying a bag of bricks. Ouch! Not so with the Moshi Aerio! This bag is featherlight but ready for a day of serious productivity.
I’ve made no secret of my love for everything Waterfield. One of my favorite bags from them is also one of their newest: the Waterfield Field Muzetto. Made from waxed, cotton canvas and full-grain, distressed leather, it takes the Muzetto design that I love and gives it an entirely new look and feel. And it comes in three different sizes!
I’m a huge fan of Incase products, so when they sent over their Incase City Compact, I was very excited, especially with the big convention, CES coming up right around the corner. Designed to be light and compact, the City Compact by Incase is actually all of that and more.
With so many backpacks on the market, they can all become a blur of black … but every now and then one comes along that is so well thought out that it stands out — and the Lifeworks Voyager Pack is one such example.
I love when WaterField brings new offerings to market. Each and every time the product is well-conceived, brilliantly executed and designed to last a lifetime. That’s certainly the case with the new WaterField Field Muzetto. It is available in three sizes for tablets, small laptops and larger laptops. They look gorgeous and I can’t wait to get a review sample.
I’m going to be up front about this review: I’m biased because vertical messenger bags are my favorite kind. So I was already predisposed to like the Moshi Aerio Lite before I tested it out, and after using it I can easily confirm my first impression was correct!
A few weeks ago, I reviewed a Moshi bag as the first in a series of reviews on how to look professional while carrying your gear. Today, we’re looking at how to carry your laptop in style, with the Grace Deluxe Sleeve from STM.
