Let's get the bad news out of the way first. This Space Invaders-themed backpack only looks like a miniature replica of an arcade machine — it doesn't actually let you play the classic video game that has you fending off alien invaders. But we'll happily turn a blind eye to that oversight, because everything else about this pack is fantastic.

I have a bag problem. It's rivaled only by my shoes and my jacket problems. I collect the things. I throw away too much money every year on the quest for the perfect bag for travel, or every day, or evening, or conventions. I have four different bags just for lugging my camera equipment around. But I only have one backpack in regular use (the other is from high school and covered in X-Files quotes). It's specifically a backpack for cameras, and unless I need to haul a multitude of lenses around it never leaves my closet.
A backpack is a great way to carry a bunch of stuff while keeping your arms free. That's why they can be a great photography accessory. The fact that it's always out of reach on your back is annoying, though. This is surely why Wolffepack has created a photography-focused pack that you can access without having to remove it.
Once a brand tailored to those who'd rather spend their weekends exploring the great outdoors than bingeing on Netflix, North Face is now creating packs designed for those who only ever hike to work.

Centuries of gender role reinforcement have ingrained the idea that women carry purses, while men stuff everything they need into every last pocket on their person.

What good is a set of wheels on the bottom of your suitcase if somewhere between checking your bag and retrieving it from a luggage carousel one or two of them have been broken off? Your bags are actually harder to transport after that happens. But since standing spinner suitcases are just so convenient, Heys has introduced the first set of retractable wheels on its new Stealth that keeps them safe and out of the way while a bag is being handled
A laptop bag can protect all of your electronics as you bump into other passengers on a crowded subway, or simply get caught in the rain. But the MTS Multi-Threat Shield briefcase goes much way further than that — it can also protect you from gunshots, knives, and even physical attacks when unfurled into a three-foot long shield.
Unless you're just wandering off into the wilderness for a week, there's often a lot of waiting involved when travelling — whether it's for a flight, a hotel room, a taxi, or even dinner.
