Simple to the point natural canvas carry all with undyed horse front leather straps, 2 option button closure and a double canvas bottom. Love how they have added a bit of flair at the top making what could have been square more flair. I see these bags being used as a carryon by both men and women; a great way to prepare for the eventual emptying your bag ritual.

Very rich looking leather case handmade with strips of sturdy leather. The interior has soft felt pocket lining. I really like these unique efforts and could spend my afternoons browsing markets, in this case Etsy, in search of them. Definitely a conversation starter.

I love the contrast between the aluminum handle with the vegetable tanned leather in this briefcase by Bill Amberg. The Rocket Bag is large enough to hold your laptop and other daily office essentials, has internal pocketing for a mobile phone and wallet, and a padded base to help protect the internals from accidental drops. It’s gorgeous now but the leather is only going to look better as it develops its own patina and character over time.

Made by the beloved Billy Kirk, this passport wallet features beautiful hand-stitched details, hand-oiled leather, and looks that will only improve with time. The interior pocket has a loop closure to keep cash, tickets, and other ephemera in place. I’m certain I would prefer the black to the natural vegetable-tanned pictured above, but what a beauty!

I don’t usually like these concepts, I quickly grew tired of all the envelope metaphors for the Macbook Air, but somehow Nedrelow’s Book for iPad seems a far more fitting choice. I love it.
Hand-crafted to order in a small Minnesota studio from sustainable, durable materials, the Book is a hard case that takes the form of a hard cover book with a linen book cloth outer surface and a wool felt sleeve tailored to the iPad on the inside. Currently there are three exterior cover variations , one with the Book logo on the cover, another with no text, and the last with Not a book on the spine. For an extra five dollars you can add your own text to the spine and cover.

Fantastic design for this aggressive looking backpack by cyclus. Handmade with recycled truck tire inner tubes the bag’s form takes its’ inspiration from the protective scales on the back of an animal called the pangolin. Thankfully unlike the pangolin the protective scales on this bag are not razor sharp. Using the bag is intuitive with the pieces retracting inside one another when opened, with the opposite occurring when closed. The bag is held closed by magnetic closures. The bag is large with plenty of pockets on the inside for your various analog and digital gadgets.
Great concept but the end product may be, like many products that use rubber as their base material, heavier than you are accustomed to.

The stylish Billykirk Laptop Flight Bag is made of waxed canvas and leather, features padding for your laptop, an interior pocket for stashing your gadgets or chargers, and adjustable shoulder straps. Handmade by Amish leather makers, this and all of Billykirks work are the epitome of quality craftsmanship. It doesn’t get much better at this or any price.

This cotton canvas bag from Belstaff is reminicent of the type of bag I used to love years ago (with much better detailing to what I could afford then) but impractical for the type of bag I use today. I always seem in a rush to get things in and out of my bags. The main features of this bag are its’ materials and craftsmanship – the bag is made from English cotton canvas that’s been woven on an “original loom” to replicate the original irregularity of the fabric. They cheat (I think it’s cheating) by giving the fabric a “special” washing to help give the bag a well used look and feel. Great leather trim and tons of pockets. I love the look.
Belstaff has been making great technical gear since their founding in 1924 — I do love their new hero jacket. If only I could afford it.

Designer Frederique Morrel makes me feel embarrased for using a ziplock bag. These quirky lunchboxes made from vintage tapestries have to be one most unique ways to carry lunch I have ever seen. ” Based on the convenient format of a well known meal container for kids available at fast-food restaurants. Folds flat. Each product is one-of-a-kind”. Beautiful.
