Updated for 2009 with a new grey, orange, and black colorway, the Gravis Digi Bag ($79) offers legendary protection for your gear. It features a cross-body design, padded laptop compartment, bottom rear zip sleeve for attaching to luggage handles, two padded main compartments with separate zipper access and multiple organization pockets, and more.
Whether you prefer to carry it as a handle bag or backpack, the Fjällräven Kanken Rucksack ($100) has you (and your stuff) covered. Made by legendary Nordic outfit Fjällräven, the Kanken features versatile back straps that allow you to carry the bag any way you like, and also offers several outer pockets, a groovy arctic fox logo, and a generous 15 x 6 x 11 footprint to store plenty of goodies.
Lots of bags claim to offer plenty of interior organization, but none let you adjust it to fit your particular set of gear. Until now. Cocoon Bags ($40-$130) feature an innovative Grid-It organization system inside, which use a unique weave of rubberized elastic bands to offer nearly endless configuration. With a variety of sizes, styles, and colors available, you're sure to find one that suits your needs.
Originally created to be the ultimate bag for the the LAPD and the U.S. military, the 5th generation Tactical Bail Out Gear Bag ($20) is a do-it-all bag that's both rugged and attractive (and cheap). At home on the battlefield and in the office, the Bail Out has YKK brand zippers, Velcro closures, a removable padded shoulder strap, and polyester lining to protect items from harm. Great for use as a gadget pack or a diaper bag, the large main pocket has a removable stiffener, and the zippered side pocket is designed for secure storage of your wallet, passport, keys, radio, and other valuable items. Staying true to its tactical roots, the bag comes in black, desert tan, and our recommendation: olive drab.
As this Uncrate editor can attest, there are too few diaper bags geared for Dads. Most come in pink or paisley and feature long, purse-length straps, making for a difficult pairing with your T-shirt and boots. Reclaim your manhood with the Diaper Dude Grey Messenger II ($100). This messenger-style bag is made of durable polyester fabric, has a padded shoulder strap, a large compartment for baby stuff, and an additional internal pocket for Dad. Is that a cell phone pocket or a built-in insulated bottle holder? Only you will know.
