LoDo Large Backpack from Case Logic

case-logic-lodoWe have had a lot of fun reviewing Case Logic products before, and the last time was the Kontrast DSLR Camera Bag. We are now going to review another device made for holding with the LoDo Large Backpack, made for holding some kind of 15.6-inch laptop.

Not only can you hold a laptop in there, but there is a pocket there for an iPad there as well. There is a mesh pocket inside with a zipper for the accessories, and the top can be strung tight.

You will notice that there are two buckles there to hold it shut, and the two pockets on the back of this backpack as well. The pockets have snaps, but they are magnetic closing as well. The top also has a zipper pocket that is designed to hold a cellular phone.

The material is pretty soft, and I am told that it has a high quality cotton canvas exterior. Whatever it is, it feels pretty good, and the straps make it a comfortable load.

If this sounds like something that you want, head on over to the Case Logic site and lay down $84.99 for it.

Case Logic Kontrast DSLR Shoulder Bag

Case Logic KontrastWell, I had another chance to try out some Case Logic products, and was pleased to receive the Kontrast DSLR Shoulder Bag. I have to admit, when it arrived, I thought I had received some kind of lunchbox or some kind of old-school binoculars case. I don’t know how many of my readers got that reference, if you will even call it that.

The zipper on top is made to open up and you can insert your DSLR camera. Then there is a place for the camera as well as a lens with this thing that looks like it could hold a drink. You can even take out the lens holder, as Velcro is the only thing that keeps it in there.

Then there are some terrific pockets for whatever. There is one on each side, one in the front, and there is even a pocket on the lid itself.

Now, carrying this around could feel like you are carrying a heavy burden, but it fortunately comes with a strap. You can know that it will be safe, and the DuraBase gives a sense of security to all you photographers out there.

You can get the Kontrast DSLR Shoulder Bag on the Case Logic site for about $79.95.

Case Logic Part 2: Rotating Folio for iPad Air and Smartphone Lens Case

Case Logic Rotating iPad AirOkay, I had a terrific chance to try out some other Case Logic products, and one of them is for the iPad Air and the other is a lens case for smartphones.

I’ll start with the Rotating Folio for the iPad Air. I will let you know that yes, there are several products like this, so I will tell you what is unique about it. I chose the image of it because it has that dash-shaped thing that is a different color than the rest of it. That is the locking mechanism of this, and I can’t tell if it is magnetic or not.

Then there is the ability to rotate for portrait and landscape viewing, and yes, I have seen this feature before. I also have seen its magnetic wake and sleep functionality.

Anyway, if you like this, you can get it on the Case Logic site for $49.99.

Case Logic smartphone lens thingThis next product is something that I have never seen before, a smartphone lens case. I realize that the Olloclip and similar products are pretty popular, so I guess it is really just a matter of time before someone made a product to accommodate it.

It is a zipper-pocket with some padded areas to keep your smartphone lenses safe. There isn’t really any way to keep this handy, as it is like a glasses case or something. If it is possible to make it into a keychain, maybe.

You should be able to get the Smartphone Lens Case on the Case Logic Site for $19.99.

Case Logic Part 1: Griffith Park Deluxe Backpack and 15.6″ Laptop and 10.1″ Tablet Attache

Case Logic Griffith Park Deluxe BackpackI know I usually say that it has been a while since I reviewed some product, and I honestly can’t say if I reviewed a Case Logic product, ever. This is a real shame, and today I’ll be reviewing two cases from Case Logic.

The first is Griffith Park Deluxe Backpack, named after that park in Santa Monica. It is made for Apple products, like a 15-inch MacBook Laptop as well as an iPad. It has a rucksack opening, which I assume means that it can be clinched closed with this weird quick release clip. You can fit a lot in besides a laptop and tablet, let me tell you.

Then there is pockets, a lot of pockets. There is one in the center on the back, one on the top, and there is one mesh pock on both of the sides. Yes, you are going to have a lot room for your stuff, and it will stay in this backpack comfortably.

If you want to get in on this, you should be able to get it on the Case Logic site for about $89.99.

Case Logic AttacheThen there is the 15.6-inch Laptop and 10.1-inch Tablet Attache. This can do the same thing as the Griffith Park Deluxe Backpack, but not hold as much as anything else.

This doesn’t mean that it is a worse product, but if you need all those other pockets that I described before, then why both with product that has them? Surely an Attache would look much better in the business world rather than the college student look of the Griffith Park Deluxe Backpack. Okay, more people are using backpacks then just college students, but you see what I mean.

Too bad that it isn’t made of leather, as that would look really classy. However, this is both classy and utilitarian with a big pocket on either side.

If this is what you are looking for, then you can purchase it on the Case Logic site for about $49.99.
