WaterField Tuck Backpack Is a Stylish 16″ Laptop Bag with Military Vibes

WaterField is starting 2022 by introducing their newest backpack, the WaterField Tuck Backpack, a streamlined, updated version of a European military rucksack.

At $299, it’s not inexpensive, but as we’ve always said, WaterField bags are an investment that will last for years.

The Gear That Is Helping Us Survive CES 2020

We’re here at CES 2020 doing everything we can to bring Gear Diary readers updates on all the exciting new and improved products we’re seeing. But it takes more than just being armed with a phone and a computer to survive the week. Here’s how we’re staying awake, staying healthy, and staying connected!



My Initial Thoughts on the Tom Bihn Synik 30 Bag

Being someone who’s never truly found the perfect bag, I always find myself looking for a bag that doesn’t think too much of itself, one that will fit into every situation. I’ve had people throw out various names of overpriced backpacks that either have little to no storage, very little organization or put so much of an emphasis on being stylish that they end up being ugly.






Solo NY Unbound Backpack Is the Perfect Travel Companion

A few weeks before we headed to CES, Solo NY reached out and asked if we were interested in reviewing their Unbound backpack. Since there’s no better torture test than a week lugging gear around Las Vegas, it came with me every step of my trip, and impressed me deeply with the amount of gear it held without being bulky.


Wellington & Cromwell Hatch Briefcase Will Raise Your Professional Profile

When I was a kid father had a large utilitarian leather briefcase that opened like a clamshell. It wasn’t much to look at but it certainly got the job done. The Wellington & Cromwell Hatch Briefcase takes that classic design to new heights. Made from beautiful leather, it has an elegant look that’s certain to add to your professional appearance.



Birksun Boost 2 Solar Backpack: Clean Power on the Go

I split my time between writing freelance, playing music, and helping my entrepreneur wife run her makerspace. So as you can imagine, I’m on the go a lot. I visit a steady rotation of local cafes, bookstores, and libraries — laptop and smartphone in hand so I can do my work, stay in contact with clients, and work on music.


The Rhake Backpack by Mission Workshop is a Great Way to Carry All of the Things

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 truly enjoy the most about the bag. Instead of opting for an inch of zippers and hidden compartments, the Rhake bag looks more like a bike messenger bag than anything…


Wolffepack Escape Backpack is Something Special

Every now and then I’ll get a text from Raina that says “Cool. Get and review please?” That’s how we got the CleverPet that Nava continues to love. (Read the review.) And it is what happened with the Wolffepack Escape backpack. Its “expetoSYSTEM” is a “patented orbital trapeze technology [that] frees the bag [allowing it to] swing around.” It’s ingenious.
