Fjallraven Duffel No.6

By Amy / September 1, 2015 / Comments Off on Fjallraven Duffel No.6

Sometimes you need carry-on luggage with wheels and a handle and laptop compartments, and sometimes, you simply need a tough, no-nonsense duffel. This is where the Fjallraven Duffel No.6 comes in. Bar none, this bag is the most rugged, sturdy, and strong I’ve ever used. The Duffel No.6 has joined me on several outdoor adventure…

Pacsafe Camsafe Z16

By Jill / January 16, 2015 / Comments Off on Pacsafe Camsafe Z16

Somewhat like Goldilocks, I’m forever searching for something that’s just right. In my case, it’s a carry-on bag that totes my camera and laptop, has a little extra room for a wallet and phone, and is comfortable to use. Extra bonus if it’s not an obvious camera bag, so I can escape the watchful eyes…

By Ramsey / August 11, 2014 / Comments Off on Best Laptop Backpack: TLS Professional Slim Review

Like all products in the favored TLS series, there are a number of popular uses for those traveling frequently with laptop computers.

By Jill / May 16, 2014 / Comments Off on Gregory Compass 30 Pack

Do you pack your backpack perfectly, placing the things you’ll need first on top, so you don’t have to dig for something? Don’t lie. Many have attempted, but few have accomplished the perfect packing technique. Wouldn’t it be great to have a backpack that opens like a duffel, so you can see all the contents…

NorChill Soft-Sided Cooler for Road Trips — or Plane Travel

By Kara / July 16, 2010 /

Ever use a soft-sided cooler bag as a carry-on? I did last month, when we were flying from Colorado to Minnesota to begin a wild mystery road trip through seven states. A cooler for storing water bottles, snacks, sandwiches and leftovers is a non-negotiable must have for our family road trips, and I knew I…
