    Gadget Holster: Bring Out Your Inner "Nerdy Harry"

    While I agree that pocket bloat is a problem that needs a solution, the gadget holster is not it. In short, it’s a belt that has a bag attached with pockets for your iPod, cellphone, memory stick, pride, virginity, etc. Not to sound all erudite, but didn’t we used to call these fanny packs? For serious, this is worse than wearing your phone on your belt. And yes, wearing your phone… Read More

    Battletest: Vyper exo by Booq


    Fresh off the assembly line comes the brand new Vyper exo briefcase from Booq, a company whose motto reads, “Empowering the next generation of creative performance.” It’s an ambitious and open-ended goal, that is most appreciated by a very specific demographic (you).

  • Travel for Geeks: What's In Your Bag?

    A true gadget nerd is only as good as the gadgets that they carry with them. We live in an age of amazing laptop bags with room, as well as special pockets, for just about everything a real world person could need, from cellphones to PDAs to the ubiquitous laptops. That doesn’t mean, however, that all gear carriers are made the same. In fact, the differences in gadget encumbrance not… Read More

    Golla Laptop Bags: GOOOOOLLLLAAAAA

    We’re fairly big fans of the Golla mobile bags and now the company has come out with a nice collection of laptop bags to round out their selection. They have an interesting drawstring closure inside and are big enough for a laptop and a few magazines. I wouldn’t try stuffing a camera in there, though. Product Page Read More

  • G-Tech Messenger Bag Lets You Control Your iPod And Listen To It Too


    I love Eleksen’s ElekTex Smart Fabric and the companies that think up new ways to use it. Case in point, this messenger bag from G-Tech (by GoodHope Bags) that was announced earlier this week. Connect your iPod inside a pocket on the bag and you can use the Smart Fabric buttons on the strap to control your audio. That in and of itself isn’t too groundbreaking, but G-Tech added… Read More

It features a ballistic nylon exterior, a three-panel design, a built-in padded laptop compartment, two exterior pockets and a rubberized bottom.

    mini Goombah Rolling Bag Review

    Naneu Pro Bags have been on our radar lately–nice blogger outreach, lots of cool multi-purpose bags with built-in laptop and camera slots, etc.–so we are stoked to see SlashGear’s review of the mini Goombah. Unfortunately, they had some initial trouble fitting a MacBook Pro in there, so we’ll have to wait a bit longer for a full review. However, we can suggest looking… Read More
