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.
Moshi is notorious for having some quality products and accessories for everyday products such as your smartphone, tablet and more, but what about your bag? We’ve got the Moshi Venturo Backpack, a slim laptop bag that takes everything we love about traditional backpacks and adds a messenger bag flair that gives it a unique approach that only Moshi could pull-off.
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!
