REVIEW: MODERN DAYFARER CAP
​. As you can see from the photos, I am bold as a knee and I did not find the magnetic buckle to be uncomfortable. However, those who are used to soft fabric against their skin might need a bit of time to warm up to the plastic buckle of the Dayfarer Cap. ​.

Expert help needed for our travel bag selections!
My mom throws everything in a Jansport Big Student bag, it's kind of a mess but it works fine. If you're worried about paring things down, do a trial run at home as mmolle also suggested.

Strap

Dayfarer
Peak Design makes good products
I love Peak Design products. I have a few straps, camera hand strap, 5L Sling and now the Tech Pouch. Great organisational bag for travelling and was hoping to use it with a strap for daily use. This version (Amazon) is slightly different from the Peak Design website version (external looped attachm...

JanSport Big Student Backpack
One is a little bit better. Also the price on this one is a little bit higher. This is a little bit more expensive than some of the other backpacks i have, but with good reason, i feel like you're paying for quality when you buy a backpack like this, i really like the straps

Quality Tech Bag, High Price Point

This personally makes other pouches i own obsolete as I don't have to dig or shuffle around items saving a lot of time. I put it beside my keyboard at my desk for easily accessibili...

Awesome backpack
The media could not be loaded. I bought this because of the lifetime warranty. Usually my packs fail from just normal use. The cup holder finally failed about a week ago.

Ragarding use, it's really comfortable an...

Pricey but awesome
This is a very well made case, which is reflected in the price. I wasn't sure if this would provide the value to me it cost, so was pre-disposed to be disappointed by it. That all said, I've found it to be my favorite cable and gadget organizer to date. I work remotely, so my computer bag is my offi...
