Mother Lode Weekender Convertible Junior Backpack

Mother Lode Weekender Convertible Junior Backpack

When I’ve travelled for extended periods I have found that packing is not unlike stowing gear on a small boat. Life on the road is much easier when everything is in its place and there is a place for everything. My favorite bag for packing light, long-term travel is the eBags TLS Mother Lode Weekender […]

Guitar Pick Punch

Filofax Personal Organizer

Why a paper-based organizing system in this digital age? First, as Getting Things Done guru David Allen puts it, “low-tech is oftentimes better because it is in your face.” Second, last I checked (channeling Jason Lanier here), I am not a gadget. I cherish the tools that help me stay organized, yet allow me to […]

Timbuk2 is a name synonymous with bicycle messenger bags and their use of Ballistic Nylon materials. The first batch of Bifold Wallet colors were heavy on the pastels, but I chose the […]

OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Measuring Cup Set

Indeed, over time it has become clear that the presence of the brand on an item does not necessarily guarantee good design or build quality. That said, I […]

Mophie Space Pack
