    Truco Roller Bag Splits Into Pieces For Easy Stowage

    I just noticed that "stowage" is a lot like "storage," and chances are the former is just a corruption of the latter born on the high seas, where nobody has the time or inclination enunciate. But to proceed: Are you one of those people who must use every possible cubic inch of storage allotted to you on the plane, and perhaps a little more? If so, you bother me, and I wish you'd stop. But for… Read More

  • Indiana Jones Would Rock This Canvas Lunch Bag

    Indiana Jones Would Rock This Canvas Lunch Bag

    This thing makes me want to go loot some ancient temple, then stop and have a panini on the way out. Of course, I’m a sucker for waxed canvas, but you have to admit this Artifact lunch sack handsome object. It costs $45, which is a bit much for giving to a young’un with a habit of losing things, but it’s a great option for reducing your own brown paper bag usage. You still want… Read More

    The ONA Union Street Messenger Bag Looks Waxily Amazing

    I've been on the lookout for a nice waxed canvas messenger bag over the last few weeks, and this one from ONA looks like it might really hit the spot. Waxwear finish, removable laptop compartment, brass fittings... it's like they pulled it fully formed from my mind. Read More

  • Lowepro Camera Bag Roundup

    Lowepro Camera Bag Roundup

    It's tough to recommend camera bags. Choosing the bag that's right for you can be long process, and one that you should take seriously, even to the point of going to your local camera store and check out the fit and feel of bags there. You need to make sure that the bag you choose fits your needs, but still has room to grow. That way your spouse/significant other can't shoot you down when you find… Read More

    New Upscale Cobra Booq Bags Are Sleek And Expensive

    Bag maker Booq has a new line of gear aimed at the high end — you know, business guys who want understated black stuff but don’t want to be a Samsonite guy.

  • TravelTeq Suitcase Doubles As A Chair, Speaker System

    TravelTeq Suitcase Doubles As A Chair, Speaker System

    Acquire points us to this weird TravelTeq aluminum suitcase that folds out to turn into a seat (for long waits at the airport) and has a small protective case that pops out for your laptop or other sundries. There’s also an option charging and speaker system that can be built-into the case. This doesn’t come cheap – they start at $700 – but aren’t you worth it, sleepy… Read More

    Review: Cocoon Innovations Gramercy iPad Bag

    Back when the iPad was new and the world was a different place, we thought we could have it all. This was before the Gulf oil spill, before the horrors of LeBron, before the East Coast heat wave of ought-ten. Back then we thought men could wear little purses to carry their iPads in. Sadly, those heady, care-free days are gone. Cocoon Innovations is best known for their Grid-It system of gear… Read More

  • Booq's new Mamba Catch bag is ready for your shoulder

    Booq's new Mamba Catch bag is ready for your shoulder

    It's been a while since we've heard from Booq, but you may remember our reviews of the Mamba Shift and Boa Squeeze. The identifying characteristics of Booq bags are a slick exterior and pocket-packed interior, and the new Catch doesn't disappoint there. It's a messenger/shoulder bag with a bit of structure to it so it doesn't collapse when empty. Personally I like my bags to be as big as the stuff… Read More
