Chances are you carry quite a few bits and bobs on a daily basis. As a self-confessed geek, I carry (in no particular order) an iPod, a pair of headphones for the iPod, a wallet, a NintendoDS Lite, a mobile phone, a hands free kit for the mobile phone, some form of portable charging device for both the iPod and mobile phone, car keys, house keys, a book, a notepad... the list goes on.
In the winter when wearing a nice, roomy coat or jacket, I've got a number of pockets in which to store my equipment. That said, there's always the danger of reaching critical mass; at which point you're going to need a bigger jacket (or maybe you'll just explode). A Clint Eastwood-style duster or greatcoat is ideal, but lacking in practicality. Inevitably, the summer comes and my jacket (or greatcoat) needs to be retired, and I'm left with a bit of a problem.
Enter Proporta's cleverly named Gadget Bag, which just might be the answer to the above problem.
Previously I've used either a satchel-esque record bag to carry my possessions, or the RoadWired Pod. The satchel is great for larger items, but has a tendency to eat your iPod and not play nice and give it back when asked. The Pod served me well, but is designed in such a way as to hold very specific items (there are obvious sections for batteries, for example; not something I carry). And it looks quite a lot like a camera bag.
The Gadget Bag is smarter than your average bag: it's a lot flatter than a camera bag, and yet it seems to hold a marvelous amount of gadgetery. It's designed with three main compartments (although it arguably has four). The two symmetrical front compartments - which are removable if they're surplus to your requirements - are designed to house your iPod, or your phone; whatever you like, really. I've comfortably fit my iPod (other mass storage MP3 players are available) in one side, my smart-phone in the other, and still had room to spare.
Then there's the larger rear section - this is twice the size of the front compartments, and will easily consume a couple of DVD cases. Within this third compartment is the fourth, a smaller pouch-like pocket that's intended to house headphones, I suspect. It "Velcros" to the inside of the bag, and has comfortably accommodated my USB keyfob since I started using the bag.
