Gadling Gear Review

Gadling Gear Review: NetZero 4G Mobile Hotspot

Gadling Gear Review: NetZero 4G Mobile Hotspot There was a terrible noise this morning at our house – the garbage truck ripped out our cable hub and left us without an Internet connection. This is, to put it mildly, a problem at our house where we have two work-at-home Internet junkies. I had been intending to...

Gadling Gear Review: DeLorme inReach Satellite Communicator

Gadling Gear Review: DeLorme inReach Satellite Communicator Thanks to cheap mobile phones and the proliferation of the Internet, it is now easier than ever to stay in touch while traveling, even while visiting foreign countries. But there are still certain places on the planet where cellphone coverage is nonexistent and technology of...

Gadling Gear Review: Tieks Foldable Ballet Flats

Gadling Gear Review: Tieks Foldable Ballet Flats Shoes are always the packing puzzle I can't quite solve. Travels that require evening dress are a struggle. I once gave up valuable space in my luggage for a pair of strappy platform sandals; the evening dress I packed took up probably a quarter of the space I needed for...

Gadling Gear Review: High Peak Latitude Zero-Degree Sleeping Bag

Gadling Gear Review: High Peak Latitude Zero-Degree Sleeping Bag It may seem hard to believe, but winter is a lot closer than any of us would like to admit. When it arrives, it will inevitably bring cold temperatures and plenty of snow and ice. But the shift in weather doesn't mean we have to put an end to our outdoor adventures for the...

Gadling Gear Review: Cannondale Quick Backpack

Gadling Gear Review: Cannondale Quick Backpack Finding the perfect carry-on bag can be a never-ending quest for some travelers. It has to be capable of carrying all of your gear, while still keeping its contents safe from harm. It should also be comfortable enough to lug around all day, but also durable enough to survive...

Gadling Gear Review: Cubedge Edge.sound Portable Speaker

Gadling Gear Review: Cubedge Edge.sound Portable Speaker Update: After posting this review I received an updated Edge.sound speaker with firmware 1.1 installed. That updated addresses a few minor technical issues and enhances the sound quality fairly significantly. The speaker is now much improved over the one that I initially...

Gadling Gear Review: Scottevest Fleece 7.0 Jacket

Gadling Gear Review: Scottevest Fleece 7.0 Jacket Saying that Scottevest is a company that makes jackets is akin to saying Apple is a company that makes cellphones. Both statements are technically correct, but both also fail to tell the whole story. Scottevest puts the emphasis not only on comfort and good looks but also...

Gadling Gear Review: Phiaton Noise Canceling Earbuds

I had a moment of anxiety when I boarded a recent flight from Amsterdam to Seattle. The middle cabin, where I was seated, was full of very small children. Now, before you hit send on that hate mail, let me tell you that I am always sympathetic with the yowling little ones;...

Gadling Gear Review: Solar Chargers For Travel

Gadling Gear Review: Solar Chargers For Travel Keeping all of our electronic gadgets charged while traveling can be a real challenge, particularly if you're visiting a remote part of the world where electricity is at a premium. But just as the gizmos we carry with us have gotten more sophisticated so have the options for...

Gadling Gear Review: Ozone Ultralight Roller Bag

Gadling Gear Review: Ozone Ultralight Roller Bag I look for three things in a roller bag. The bag should be easy to handle, easy to pack and be as light as possible. Osprey has tacked the weight issue head on with their new Ozone line of roller bags, and they score on handling and packability, too. The bag comes in...

Gadling Gear Review: Pelican 1065 HardBack iPad Case

Gadling Gear Review: Pelican 1065 HardBack iPad Case The iPad is a perfect travel companion, providing hours of entertainment and keeping us in communication while on the go. But Apple's device can be fragile and it's not always easy to safely carry it with us when we hit the road. Fortunately, there are a variety of good...

Gadling Gear Review: Booq Python Courier Camera Bag

Gadling Gear Review: Booq Python Courier Camera Bag As digital SLR cameras continue to grow in popularity, new buyers will inevitably be looking to purchase a good travel bag to protect their investment. A high-quality camera bag not only allows them to tote their gear around safely, but also keeps it well organized and close...

Gadling Gear Review: Eye-Fi Mobile X2 Wireless Memory Card

Gadling Gear Review: Eye-Fi Mobile X2 Wireless Memory Card One of the features that has been appearing on new camera models with increased frequency is built-in Wi-Fi functionality. Wireless capabilities on the camera allows users to sync with their computer and upload images to Flickr, Facebook or other photo sharing services...

Gadling Gear Review: Jawbone Jambox Portable Speaker

Gadling Gear Review: Jawbone Jambox Portable Speaker A few years back the Bluetooth portable speaker market was a small one that mainly consisted of tiny, underpowered speakers with mediocre sound. Then along came the original Jambox by Jawbone and consumers realized it was possible to get high quality sound in a small, yet...

Gadling Gear Review: EXO Hardside Luggage From eBags

Gadling Gear Review: EXO Hardside Luggage From eBags With all that electronica the modern traveler hauls from Point A to Point B and back again, it's natural to be worried about things getting crunched, crushed and smashed. Hard-sided luggage is the solution, especially if you're checking a bag, and eBags has a new line of...

Gadling Gear Review: Poüch iPad Case From Tabü

Gadling Gear Review: Poüch iPad Case From Tabü Let's face it – iPad cases are a dime a dozen these days and owners of Apple's tablet have more options to choose from than they ever thought possible. Most of those cases are fairly generic looking and bring very little to the table beyond providing very basic...

Gadling Gear Review: Geneva Model XS Travel Alarm Clock And Speaker System

Gadling Gear Review: Geneva Model XS Travel Alarm Clock And Speaker System The travel alarm clock was once required equipment on any trip. These small, usually battery operated, clocks were essential to getting us up and moving in the morning no matter where we slept the night before. Slowly over time, the travel alarm clock has mostly been...

Gadling Gear Review: Scottevest Transformer Jacket

Gadling Gear Review: Scottevest Transformer Jacket Safely and securely carrying all of our gadgets while traveling can be a real chore. Many of us now hit the road with a smartphone, digital camera, tablet, headphones and more. While each of those tech toys has made travel more enjoyable, it isn't always easy to keep them...

Three Unsung Travel Gear Items

Three Unsung Travel Gear Items I registered for the Summer Outdoor Retailer Show, a gear extravaganza that takes place twice a year in Salt Lake City. Unfortunately, "day job" stuff got turned on its head such that I can't attend, though fellow Gadling Gear Guy Kraig Becker will be representing and will...

On Traveling Without The Big DSLR Camera

On Traveling Without The Big DSLR Camera I own a Nikon D200 with some extra stuff, including a 28-300 telephoto lens that weighs a ton. I have a Panasonic Lumix (that's what I used to shoot this picture of dusk in the Serengeti), and an iPhone. I have a video camera, too (the only thing on my list of gear that I...
