  • Bag Week: Daame Bags

    Bag Week: Daame Bags

    While I can’t say that Daame Bags are the best daame bags we’ve tested (see what I did there?), I can say that they are definitely an interesting rethinking of the women’s laptop bag. We tested two types – a wide leather laptop tote and other 13-inch model. I showed both of these to a human woman, my wife, who said that she liked the elegant and spare design but noted… Read More

    Bag Week: The Pad & Quill Attache

    If life was like Toy Story, and when we fell asleep, all of our inanimate objects suddenly came to life, the Pad & Quill Attache bag would be some super combo of both Woody and Buzz Lightyear. Socially, this bag would be the head honcho. With a beautiful, hand-crafted (and signed by that hand) leather exterior, the Attache laptop bag feels slightly Old-World. It’s a classic… Read More

    Bag Week: The HEX Fleet Messenger Bag

    As surely as the seasons turn and the sun races across the sky, Bag Week is upon us once again. Last year I took a risk by taking a white Ogio backpack for a spin (surprise: it still looks pretty good!), and this time around I decided to step out of my comfort zone again with the comparatively tiny HEX Fleet Messenger bag ($79.99).

  • Bag Week: The Incase Pathway Field Bag And Range Messenger Bag

    Bag Week: The Incase Pathway Field Bag And Range Messenger Bag

    Though it’s relatively small, Incase’s Pathway Field Bag is officially going to be my new favorite bag. Why? It’s stylish, can fit a phone, tablet and computer (plus other accoutrement), and is compact enough to go just about anywhere with me. The Pathway Field Bag is a single strap vertical backpack, which is great for anyone who likes to carry just the essentials. Read More

    Bag Week: The Ogio Rivet Messenger Bag

    I do not like the pleather look of the Ogio Rivet. It’s degrading. Childish. Cheap. But damn do I love this bag, which is actually made out of shiny black canvas. We have reviewed a lot of bags at TechCrunch and it’s always been clear that Ogio knows the secret formula to a great bag. The Ogio Rivet is no different. It offers plenty of space throughout the well-made bag with… Read More

  • Bag Week: The Nomadic WT-18 Toto Bag And WL-25 Wise-Walker Backpack

    Bag Week: The Nomadic WT-18 Toto Bag And WL-25 Wise-Walker Backpack

    I’m starting Bag Week off with two bags from one of my favorite manufacturers, Nomadic. This Japanese seller of quality bags makes their rucksacks out of rip-stop fabric and offers a certain stark, compact design that is as far from your typical JanSport as a kimono is from an Ed Hardy shirt. Most of Nomadic’s bags are quite small and the the WT-18 Wise-Walker Toto is no exception. Read More

  • Bag Week: Booq Mamba Shift quick video tour
    Since the Mamba Shift just came out this week, I haven’t had time to put it through its paces for a full review. But because Bag Week is coming to an end, I thought I should at least give a quick overview for those looking… Read More

  • Bag Week: Booq Boa Squeeze

    Short version: Like lots of pockets in a laptop backpack? I count 27 on the Booq Boa Squeeze and wouldn’t be surprised if there are some┬áhiding. Read More

    Name one messenger bag that effectively combines a notebook bag and a camera case? Obviously the bag pictured above. The Kata CS-17. Read More
