Direct Action Small Messenger Bag Review

Post Image

These days I find myself being able to do more and more with my tablet while opting to leave my laptop behind.  I get the opportunity, when I ditch the larger device, to downsize my carry.  Usually a small day pack or shoulder bag.  One the packs I’ve been using in that role is the […]

Nutsac Kickstarter Campaign

Post Image

A couple of good guys making what looks like a promising product with an unfortunate name.  That was my first impression when Matt and I started exchanging emails about their upcoming bag line.  The Nutsac Kickstarter Campaign features four bags all made from Martexin Waxed Canvas and American top grain leather.     Founded in […]

First Look: Direct Action Legacy Line Packs

Post Image

We received a box from Direct Action yesterday.  Anyone who often visits this site knows I abhor un-boxing posts and videos BUT I had to show the DA packaging….     That’s not a t-shirt on top.  Each bag they sent us came in its own black Direction Action tote bag.  I thought it was […]

Defy Recon Wax Canvas Edition Review

Post Image

There are gear companies out there, who shall remain nameless, doing cookie cutter stuff and there are those who aspire to create something truly unique.  Defy Bags, out of Chicago, definitely falls into the later category.  A month ago I visited their Ravenswood showroom and workshop and ended up investing in a Defy Recon Wax […]

Gear Diary: A Renewed Interest in Leather Goods

Post Image

Other than belts and shoes, I have owned anything leather in a while.  I know some still love leather bags, such as this Saddleback Tablet Bag….     But, the added weight of leather (the above bag weighs 2.8 lbs empty) is a show stopper for me.  If I bag weighs me down and isn’t […]
