2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Knomo Saxby Business Tote

Knomo Saxby laptop bag

We've given a bunch of gadget recommendations in our 2012 Holiday Gift Guide, and now it's time we mention a fantastic bag to carry them all. This year we recommend the Knomo Saxby Business Tote. We've been using it over the past few months, and it's fantastic. The Saxby has a bunch of pockets, allowing you to appropriately separate things like your iPad from your notebook, and having neither of them come in contact with your keys or pens, thanks to its 4 exterior pockets, 2 interior pouch pockets, 1 interior zip pocket, and 1 interior padded laptop pocket. The size is great, and the look is really classy too (we went with the shiny navy, but you can also get it in matte black, gray, and slate.) Knomo makes high-quality, well-made bags, and this is as fine a laptop bag as you'll find. You can pick up the Knomo Saxby on Amazon starting at $119.99.

CES 2008 Video: Case Logic customizable laptop bags

Case Logic showed off a series of bags at this year. Their cases range from protecting the smallest of iPod Nano’s to the largest of Laptops. In this video, we give you a look at bags designed for customization by the user, which included pens and Sharpie markers, as well as stencils to help you…well…make it you. Could you technically write on any bag that you purchase? Sure, but would it be as fun? We’d like to think so, but we are some stencil-needing fools. In any event, check the video out to learn more about these stylish totes.


The Bleeding Edge 019: A Visit To Tom Bihn

In this episode, we take a visit to the Tom Bihn labs, where we get a first hand look into exactly what it takes to design and manufacture their awesome line of bags. We take a tour of their facility, and talk with Tom about concept, design, manufacturing, as well as a few stories about how they stress test their stuff. I mean, when a bag gets blown up in war over in Iraq, but your computer that was in the bag is protected perfectly, you know these things are good.

Tom Bihn Interview

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Wearables, Features

Tom BihnTom Bihn sent us a couple of their bags to review, and also one to give away to one of our readers. While we haven’t yet completed reviewing the bags (they will be put to the test in a couple of weeks at E3), I can say that people have stopped me to ask where I got the bag on the streets. We were able to sit down with Tom to discuss a few aspects of the company and what makes their bags unique. The questions are actually from you guys, as we received a bunch of email when we were running the bag giveaway.

What are a few things about a Tom Bihn bag that sets it apart from another?

All of our bags are completely American made. We are very proud of that. They are very streamlined, with appealing aesthetics with highly functional designs. Looking at them, you will also see that we use bold colors in our materials. One of the nicer things, though, is that the bags are extremely durable. We had one customer actually complain to us that his bag, after seven years, has yet to wear itself out!
