Review: Bbp’s Breathe Sleeve Cools Your Hot Computer

The newly released Breathe Sleeve has been cleverly designed to let the heat produced by your laptop radiate through the ventilated walls of the sleeve. And heat, as we know, can be very detrimental to the life of our laptop battery.

Crumpler’s Excellent Horseman Bag Is Strong and Roomy [Review]

Crumpler’s Excellent Horseman Bag Is Strong and Roomy [Review]

I love the latest Horseman laptop bag from Crumpler.

The best thing about Crumpler’s Horseman Bag is its size, which I think is optimum for a messenger/laptop bag. I have owned messenger bags that are too big, really just a huge cavernous void for your stuff to rattle and roll around in.

The other end of the spectrum are bags that are too small, which I personally think look a little on the feminine side on a fully-grown man. Not The Horseman though.

BBP’s Great Hybrid Hampton Bag Converts From Messenger to Backpack And Back [Review]

BBP’s Great Hybrid Hampton Bag Converts From Messenger to Backpack And Back [Review]

I must admit I love the BBP Hybrid Hampton bag, possibly my favorite of the year, in terms of style at least.

BBP’S Hybrid Hampton is the company’s flagship laptop bag featuring the Bak2Pak system that converts from a backback to a messenger bag in no time at all.

I’ve been on the lookout for a bag that is cool enough to be hip ‘with the kids’ while grown-up enough to take to business meetings without feeling like mutton dressed as lamb. And this bag is what I’ve been waiting for.

Logitech_Anywhere_Mouse_MX_4

Logitech's Anywhere Mouse MX works on any surface, even glass.

The main selling point of the Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX is that it works anywhere, even on glass.

It does as well. It even worked when I scrolled it over my construction hard-hat.

Full review after the jump.

Review: Three of Crumpler’s Laptop Bags and Totes (Verdict: Names Are Bizarre, But Bags Are Tough)

crumpler_barney_rustle_blanket

Three’s a crowd… unless the three in question are the latest bags from hip Australian bag maker Crumpler.

Branching out from its original line of messenger bags, Crumpler now offers, amongst others, the Salary Sacrifice (a laptop rucksack), the School Hymn (a laptop clutch case) and the Barney Rustle Blanket (a messenger bag). The names are weird, but the bags aren’t.

Hit the jump for full reviews of all three.
