I hope this is going to be a regular feature here on jkOnTheRun, sharing the cool gadget bags that our readers are finding useful.  Reader John McDonald answered the call for sharing and has sent information about the most, well, manly looking gear bag I’ve ever seen.  The Guy Stuff Travel Bag is downright practical and very cool and John says it fits a P1610 or a Flybook V5 very nicely and leaves lots of room for his other gear.  You can tell from the photos that the many pockets make this a great traveling bag too so check it out.  Thanks John!  I have to say I can see one of these hanging from my bag tree.  Uh oh.

UPDATE:  John just sent me some pics of this bag in real use.  Here it is with John’s Flybook nestled in the bag inside the slip case which he cut the end off for easy insertion/ removal.

  2. I use this bag (http://www.rei.com/product/733023?vcat=REI_SEARCH)from REI for my EeePC with room for my GPS puck (http://www.thegpsstore.com/US-GlobalSat-BU-353-USB-port-GPS-Receiver-P869C11.aspx) , wall wart and car charger. I have XP Home SP2 on my Eee and use MS Streets & Trips with the GPS puck. It all works for me. When Starbucks switches to AT&T it will be a great way for me to get connected as I am Starbucks card holder. Love your blog. You and Kevin do a great job of keeping us informed.

    Thanks

    That is the exact same bag my wife is using for her Vaio. It’s a nice bag but the shoulder strap is wierd in that the pad is on the wrong side (if you want to use it as a shoulder bag).

    My current favorite is this:

    The Fossil Computer bag. It’s surprising that it’s a nice bag and I can carry both my macbook and eeePc.

    I’m a bag-junky and try a couple bags a year looking for the perfect bag. For example I’m taking the Fossil to Europe next month since it doesn’t standout too much. However it’s missing stuff like a waterbottle pocket and some other nits.

    This is a great thread and it would be nice to have a periodic what’s your bag and what do you carry…

  4. I forgot that I can also fit my LG GSA-E50L DVD writer in the bag. Sweet.

    The shoulder pad is in the correct position on my bag.

  6. I have finally got my HP 2710P winging its way to me so have ordered one of these:

    http://www.guyontechnology.co.uk/2008/02/19/protecting-my-investment-introducing-the-tech-air-5702/

    Its a little larger than needed for the 2710P but I carry alot of software, a small toolkit and my paper work which I need. Its got a air filled section to protect the laptop or device and its comes with a itrak subscription which aids the return of your bag and contents if lost.

  7. Thanks for the tip on this bag – I checked out their website and found this bag:

    “Guy Stuff Cabin Bag”
    http://www.territoryahead.com/jump.jsp?itemID=3285&itemType=PRODUCT&path=1%2C2%2C4%2C192&iProductID=3285&sortBy=Sort%20by&page=1&onePage=

    I picked this up yesterday at my local Territory Ahead story at the mall and its perfect for my equipment:

    - Dell XPS M1330 laptop
    – Nikon D40 DSLR with Nikon 18-200mm VR lens
    – Apple Composite Video cable for iPhone with charger (so I can watch movies from my iPhone on any TV while travelling). This cable also doubles as a charging & syncing cable for my iPhone.

    There are also many compartments for memory cards, pens, cell phones, etc. Other great aspects for travel:
    – a boarding pass pocket on the front
    – a magazine pocket on the back
    – two elastic water bottle pouches

    The bag is not very well padded, so I keep the laptop sleeve that came with the XPS in the bag and am planning on picking up a Lowepro camera case (Cirrus TLZ 15 or 25) to keep the camera padded in the bag.

    Despite holding all these things, the bag is very small.

  8. I really like Tom Bihn’s line of bags.
    The Ristretto is in the works for the Macbook Air and UMPC’s:

    Also a small padded cafe bag for the EEE: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cwhit/sets/72157594322048177/

    Thanks for this thread, always good to find out what other bag junkies are using.

    I sometimes use this Wise Walker bag, which fits the Q1 perfectly as well as power supply, battery, portable hard drive and an iPod or whatever.

    I always modify most bags I get by cutting off superfluous attachments and straps that I know I won’t need. It’s surprising how much weight you can lose from the bag.

    Love gadget bag posts, thanks!

  10. The guy stuff bag looks really sweet, but I’m curious as to how much it weighs. In my experiencing bags with leather tend to be heavier than most…
