Hell Freezes Over: A Cool Fanny Pack Exists, And It Holds An iPad Mini

Hell Freezes Over: A Cool Fanny Pack Exists, And It Holds An iPad Mini

This is the Gallery Waist Pack. It’s the answer to the question, “What if we made a fanny pack for the iPad?”

That’s not quite as simple as it would seem. After all, the fanny pack is the preferred bag of the middle-aged and style-free. It’s the bag for somebody who values practicality over everything else.

And while the iPad is not completely the opposite of this, it is at least opposed to the beige pleated-pants crowd.

Mixing the two is like crossing the streams.

Roll-Top Beckett Backpack Keeps Your Gear Dry, Even In Canada

Roll-Top Beckett Backpack Keeps Your Gear Dry, Even In Canada

I wonder why every backpack doesn’t use a roll-top. They’re waterproof, they’re mechanically simple (and therefore they never go wrong), they let you extend the size of the bag and they form a handy grippy handle.

They also look cool, and the Becket bag has one.

Pad&Quill’s Micro Field Bag Is Not A Joke

Pad&Quill’s Micro Field Bag Is Not A Joke

This little baby launched its Kickstarter on April 1st, but as it’s still there a few days later (and as Brian from Pad&Quill says it’s legit) it’s time for a write-up. The Micro Field Bag is a miniaturized version of the Field Bag, the heavy monster I reviewed a few weeks back. It’s tiny, cute, and built for the iPhone.

Booq’s Python Camera Bag Is Perfect For Mirrorless Minimalists [Review]

Python Mirrorless byBooq
Category: Bags
Works With: Cameras, iPad mini
Price: $80

I have a kind of standing checklist of things I like and things that annoy me in bag design. Booq’s Python Mirrorless Bag flags just one of my “annoyances,” and that’s a purely aesthetic matter. That’s not to say it’s perfect, but it’s pretty damn good at what it does.

Dorky Ruck Pack Is Like A Giant Kids Back Pack For Astronauts

Dorky Ruck Pack Is Like A Giant Kids Back Pack For Astronauts

I’ll admit it. I was about to pass on writing up the OGIO Ruck Pack because it looks like a dorky kids bag. And then I noticed it also looks like the pack on the back of a space suit. And then I saw the pocket on the side, stuffed with my favorite water bottle, the Klean Kanteen, and I was sold. So here it is: The dork-tastic, space-friendly water-carrying Ruck Pack.

Pad&Quill’s The Field Is A Whole Lotta Bag [Review]

Pad&Quill’s The Field Is A Whole Lotta Bag [Review]

The Field byPad&Quill
Category: Bags
Works With: MacBook, iPad, paper
Price: $329

You need to know two things before you read this review. One is that Pad&Quill’s The Field is one of the best-made bags I’ve ever tried. It’s solid, tough, and will ages way more gracefully than I will.

The second is that it’s exactly the kind of bag I will never use: heavy, full of handy pockets and able to put enough weight onto that one strap to crush your shoulder. So bear both these points in mind as we continue.

Ember Modular Backpack Is Like Something Out Of An Awesome Video Game

Ember Modular Backpack Is Like Something Out Of An Awesome Video Game

The Ember bag is a Kickstarter that – at first glance – seems to be a bag out of some first-person-shooter. It’s a modular backpack design, which starts out as a “20-liter urban pack” and can be extended by adding all manner of sleeves and pockets.
