Best storage bags, fanny packs and clutches for your gear


Smart phones are bigger than ever and they bring a lot of cords, adapters, headphones and power banks. Getting all this equipment packed for travel or daily outings can be a headache. So we reviewed and selected some of the most fashionable and durable pouches, shoulder bags and sacks.

Moshi Tego backpack

Moshi Tego Slingpack 3 Dominik Tomaszewski / IDG

Moshi's Tego Slingpack was the largest bag we examined.

Price: $ 99.95
Colors: Black, green, gray
Ideal for: Smartphone, digital camera, small tablet, headphones, power banks, chargers, cords
Strong points: The Tego Slingpack is simply cool. Its design, although technically crossbody, does not really look like anything. You will get tons of compliments by wearing it. And more importantly: it is anti-theft. All zippers are concealed and face towards your body. It is therefore virtually impossible for a thief to enter when you wear it. The key bit is the way the bag is hung diagonally, allowing you to easily move it from the back to the front to unzip it. Or you can even look super trendy and wear it on your chest.

The 12.8 x 3.5 x 9.4 inch bag has two compartments: an outside pocket and a much larger main compartment. Another technical feature of the bag is the way the outer pocket has an RFID shield blocking signals that could theoretically steal details on your credit cards. The fabric is also "cut-resistant" and weatherproof to protect against rain and splash.

The Tego carry bag has an anti-theft pocket that holds all kinds of valuable electronics.

At first, the Tego Slingpack might feel like it needs an instruction manual. The two straps and two adjusters at the back can look like a mess. But once you fasten the metal clips and put them on, it will quickly make sense. The straps also allow you to customize the bag so that the bag fits snugly, making it perfect for cycling, jogging, short hikes or just walking in the city.

Moshi offers a one year limited warranty and you can buy this bag from Amazon for $ 99.95, shipping included.

Herschel Cruz Crossbody

Herschel Cruz Crossbody 1 Dominik Tomaszewski / IDG

It is a small shoulder bag ideal for some essential items.

Price: $ 34.99
Colors: Black, gray, turquoise, navy, purple, snow leopard
Ideal for: Smartphone, small headphones, power bank, chargers, cords
Strong points: The Cruz Crossbody bag from Herschel is ideal for carrying your smartphone and a few other essentials when traveling. Whether you leave for an evening or just to go for a little race, it fits perfectly to your smartphone, your charger, your wallet and your keys. This is ideal for those looking for a very small bag: it measures 7 inches tall by 5.6 inches wide. Cruz's removable clip-on strap lets you turn it into a clutch.

Herschel Supply Co. is known for its fashionable backpacks, but this shoulder bag is also available in an assortment of cool colors, including a snow leopard print. You can buy it from the Herschel website, shipping and a limited lifetime warranty included.

Incase Side Bag

side bag 2 Dominik Tomaszewski / IDG

The Incase Side Bag was our favorite size bag that we examined.

Price: $ 49.95
Colors: Black olive
Ideal for: Smartphone, cords, chargers, small headphones, power banks, digital camera
Strong points: Incase is known for its excellent housings and sleeves for electronics, but it also makes a sacred bag at the waist. The Side Bag, aptly named, is compact, but can comfortably hold a smartphone, a charging cord, a power bank and a few other strange objects. It may be small (8.5 x 2.5 x 5.5 inches), but it has three pockets: one on the outside, one main compartment and an anti-theft pocket located closest to your body.

Our favorite pocket is the anti-theft compartment, lined with faux fur. All in all, it's a great little bag for storing your valuables while on the go. You can buy the side bag on the Incase website, shipping costs and a 90 day warranty included.

WaterField Gear Pouch

Pouch for waterfield equipment 2 Dominik Tomaszewski / IDG

The cover is of good quality and made in the United States.

Price: $ 39 (small), $ 45 (medium), $ 49 (large)
Black, navy, black
Ideal for:
Smartphone, cords, power supply blocks, headphones, wireless keyboard

Strong points: Made in San Francisco for technology enthusiasts, the Water Pield Gear Pouch is perfect for storing your precious electronics. The sleeve is incredibly well crafted and cleverly slips all the way to the right side for easy removal. The canvas and lining are both waterproof, so you can be sure your technology is safe from splashing and splashing. The main compartment also includes two different sections for the organization. One of my favorite features is the automatic closure of the outer zipper of the main compartment when it is folded.

The largest equipment pouch can hold a lot of things.

The pouch is available in three different sizes, but we personally recommend the larger size we examined (which measures 11.5 x 6.2 x 1.0 inches). It is also an excellent travel item if you want to take with you electronic devices or other important items. In general, he is an excellent organizer for electronics and valuables.

WaterField comes with a lifetime warranty of defects and charges $ 2 for a standard shipment.

Casetify Tech Clutch (Medium)

casetify tech clutch 1 Dominik Tomaszewski / IDG

This impression is just one of the many reasons available.

Price: $ 68
Colors: Myriad drawings
Ideal for: Smartphone, small tablet, headphones, cords, valuables
Strong points: This stylish saffiano leather clutch from Casetify is offered in countless graphic prints. The Tech Clutch is simple but elegant, and the colors of its design stand out beautifully from the leather. There are three different sizes to choose from, but we recommend the average 8.5 x 11.8 inches. It's big enough to hold your smartphone, a small tablet and other accessories or valuables.

Speaking of leather, it is thick enough to protect electronic devices from scratches, drops and splashes. And its interior sports a card holder and is lined with luxury suede. It may not be the most protective cover or the most high-tech, but the many cool impressions it contains are worth it.

Casetify offers a 6-month warranty and delivery charges are over $ 35.

Apex Herschel Network

Herschel Apex 1 Dominik Tomaszewski / IDG

The Herschel Apex network is made from a net woven fabric.

Price: $ 19.99 (regularly $ 49.99)
Colors: White / gray, pink / purple, gray-green, burgundy
Ideal for: Smartphone, small tablet, headphones, cords
Strong points: The Herschel Apex network is made from a woven fabric that is both pleasant to look at and pleasant to touch. It has a waterproof zipper, but its small holes do not protect it from the water. And it's not big enough for papers or A4 size files. But it's still an incredibly cool organizer that will suit your technician perfectly when you're traveling.

Pad & Quill Techfolio Cord Organizer

techfolio cord organizer Dominik Tomaszewski / IDG

Get your cord life together.

Price: $ 89.95
Colors: Whiskey, chestnut, black
Ideal for: Cords, stylus
Strong points: Ropes could be the biggest bother with technology. You can count on this organizer to treat them with style and class. The Pad & Quill Techfolio is full grain leather and closes with a metal buckle. It's really the most stylish cord organizer we've ever seen, but its price is relatively high, and its price is $ 90.

The Techfolio closes thanks to its loop.

If you are a leather lover and you want something that is pleasant to the touch, this folio is definitely for you. But know this: the leather can be easily scuffed; so be prepared to give it an aged look.

Techfolio Organizer is available on the Pad & Quill website, including shipping and a limited lifetime warranty.
