I enjoy Titanfall 2, it'd be weird for me to wear a backpack with the cover of the game on it (think child's backpack) but it's okay if it's a themed backpack that just looks like something from the game, like this one

u/uabeng · 17 pointsr/magicTCG

I know this doesn’t help you now but hopefully someone else will see and will help you in the future. I use this to lock down my “go bag” in my truck. Pacsafe 55L Backpack and Bag Protector, Silver, One Size

u/NoonBlueApplePie · 17 pointsr/mallninjashit

Maybe this ?

u/segacs2 · 15 pointsr/solotravel

I try to avoid having too much stuff, because less is more. Having said that, here are a few of my most useful accessories:

  • Travel towel: Teeny-tiny and useful in so many situations.
  • Travel hairdryer: Small enough to fit in the side pocket of my bag; dual voltage so no need for a converter; allows me to avoid going to sleep with wet hair or looking like a hobo.
  • Packing cubes - I usually take one for clothes and one for undies. Invaluable for keeping my pack organized.
  • Power bank - for charging my phone or USB devices on the go.
  • Camping headlamp - don't be that douche who flips on the overhead light in a hostel dorm room while everyone is asleep.
u/CaffeineAndHate_ · 14 pointsr/EDC

Sorry about the car bud. I hope they didn't get away with stuff that was too valuable. If you plan to replace your BOB and keep it in the car maybe you'll like something like this. My buddy keeps his BOB in it, he seems to dig it.

Get a piece of plywood, rest that against the back of the car. Make sure it won't slip around. Then put a bathroom scale up against the plywood and push the car using only the scale. See how much force you're pushing with.

Regardless of the outcome, you're still moving the full ~4000 lbs of the car, but you only have to apply enough force to overcome friction to get the car to move.

As a similar experiment, you could put a bunch of weight on a skateboard, tie a rope to the front truck, and pull on it with one of those luggage scale things like this. You'll find the force to move it is a lot less than the weight on the skateboard.

u/[deleted] · 9 pointsr/motorcycles

he needs a passenger that can shoot while he rides.

i would ride with this on my back

u/felixthegirl · 9 pointsr/medicalschool

I used this last year. There are other very similar ones as well. This bag was nice because it had pockets for shoes and the inner compartment was pretty big. I could fit 2 suits and a dress for the preinterview dinner in the garment part. The suits also held up, I didn’t have to iron or steam much in the hotel.

u/t-ras · 8 pointsr/boston

u/danltn · 8 pointsr/AskUK

Imo.... If you're buying hand luggage, don't buy a suitcase. Buy a hand luggage rucksack. Way fewer problems (they've never checked the size for me), and you can force it to be a smaller shape. Carrying it on your back is usually easier too.

It's also worth mentioning that people who get their phone stolen don't actually get their phone stolen. Through dancing, walking, and taking pictures 95% of those 'stolen' phones end up in lost & found.

u/soggychowderthing · 7 pointsr/ProductPorn

It's on Amazon.

u/flees · 6 pointsr/justneckbeardthings

I bought one for a friend as a gift a few years back. You can still find them on Amazon.

u/Ketski · 6 pointsr/shutupandtakemymoney

Full sized one on Amazon, but for $21. Reviews seem to say it's pretty durable.

u/ash5 · 6 pointsr/solotravel

get a big (not massive just big enough for whatever you'll need... and u will probably need less than u think) backpack and something like this

during the day theres not much u need to take and that smaller bag will carry it, and folds up to 0 space. plus is handy for taking showers etc to bring ur stuff to shower rooms in.

carrying a duffel bag will get annoying when u have to walk ages to train station etc when u could just have one bag on ur back.

i had this back pack with space in it still and went around europe via trains, staying in hostels for just over 17 days. it was more than enough room. on first trip (for about a week) i crammed so much stuff in it but didnt need hardly any of it.

u/Dangerzonekitten · 6 pointsr/xxfitness

I wear a spibelt. Stays in place, very easy to wash, and made in the USA.

u/Tacos_Forever · 6 pointsr/Homebrewing

I use a Handheld Luggage Scale.

Don't even have to remove the kegs from the fridge/freezer. I just disconnect, lift, and do a little math (~8.34 lbs/gallon of beer/water and tare weight of the keg 8-9 lbs).

u/Junkmans1 · 6 pointsr/Cruise

There are various types of waterproof wallets or cases that you can find. I've tried quite a few types and most leak. This is the only one I've ever had that doesn't leak and lasts a long time:
It is just the right size to hold a couple sea passes, a couple driver's licenses, a credit card and a bunch of US currency wrapped around them. Even keeps things dry when snorkeling and diving 10 feet or more under water.

With other cases: if bills do get slightly damp then vendors still take them and they'll dry out if you spread them out a bit in your cabin overnight.

I always take my phone and leave in a beach bag if necessary. I realize that we're taking a chance on anything we leave in a beach bag but I've never had an issue. They do make similar cases, even the same brand, that fit a phone so you can take it into the water but I've never tried those.

In Europe and places where water is not involved but pick pockets are more of a concern, I carry my passport and most of my money and second credit card in a money belt type hidden pocket worn under my clothing. I carry just a few dollars and one credit card in my wallet so I don't have to go into the hidden pocket very often.

Last week a bus driver alerted the police that a student had a rifle in a duffel bag, causing a complete 14,000+ student campus lock down and police to swarm the campus with automatic weaponry and shotguns.

Turns out it was a samurai sword handled umbrella similar to this

it was neato.

I've been eyeballing this messenger bag for some time now. $99, Amazon Prime, good brand, and fits your laptop.

A little over your budget, but Samsonite is obviously a good brand. I'd also recommend searching for "Messenger Bag" in Amazon and looking in the ~$70 range. There are a lot of good bags on there.

u/soayherder · 5 pointsr/LetterstoJNMIL

Look into getting yourself a travel wallet - carry a decoy purse or the like. Then if it is an ambush like you suspect it might be, you are better prepared to bug out in a hurry.

u/dzernumbrd · 5 pointsr/perth

Blunt Umbrellas are the $$$$$ option. I think I've seen them at The Good Store in East Vic Park.

$100 to $160 range from that shop.

I did a "bit" (a lot) of research and eventually went the $$ option and got this on Amazon instead ->

It's pretty durable so far.

u/ObecalpEffect · 5 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella with Teflon Coating

I bought this umbrella a few years ago and it's been bullet proof. It also opens and closes like a stiletto knife which is fun.

u/uptightandpersonal · 4 pointsr/trees

My last high purchase. It was the most amazing and unexpected gift that I've ever given myself.

u/TommiHPunkt · 4 pointsr/de

Von einem Amoklauf zu sprechen, ist da extrem übertrieben, wir wissen ja nicht mal, ob der wirklich bewaffnet war, schließlich gibt es nur Augenzeugenberichte. Könnte auch ein Regenschirm gewesen sein, wäre nicht das erste Mal

Dieser Fall ist für mich klar unter Regel 2.4 zu löschen.

u/mattgif · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Of course it isn't necessary. You can get an OK looking briefcase for $100. And, honestly, it'll probably last a decade just fine.

So why pay for high-end stuff? Well, as you mentioned there are durability issues. That consists in more than just whether the seams will burst open. It has to do with things like the way the leather will wear (corrected leather shows dull spots; that Samsonite I linked will start to have discolored patches and look ratty). Mostly, though, you're paying for attention to detail. Even stitching, nicely finished edges, smooth surfaces inside and out.

Maybe that seems frivolous. But then ask: why get a leather case at all? Why not just get an LL Bean backpack? They're cheap, and last a lifetime. Obviously, the answer is that you want a certain sort of look. That's a choice to go beyond raw functional considerations. So too with wanting something well-made. The reason I suggested canvas bags is because at the OP's price point she could get a flawlessly crafted bag. I think that's something worth valuing.

u/Kryzilya · 4 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Hard to get a good look at the bag from those photos, but I just bought this Samsonite messenger bag recently and it's been serving me well. Definitely fits a lot of stuff, and the inside has a padded laptop sleeve.

u/Brutes_ · 4 pointsr/Goruck

I believe so. Here's the link - Eagle Creek Pack It Cube Set , Black, 3pc Set

Id get the ones that can separate dirty and clean if I did it now.

u/HobbNobbin · 4 pointsr/onebag

These were reommended by an article I read early on. First I ordered them and made surr my stuff would fit, then I bought a bag that would fit them!

u/OwnedU2Fast · 4 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Speaking as an owner of one of Everlane's Modern Snap backpacks, I can say that it definitely never feels like it's ever too bulky, and though I may not be 5 feet tall, I don't think that would be an issue regardless. On the contrary, it's one of the least bulky and most stylish backpacks I've ever dealt with.

If you ever have an issue with your backpack, Everlane is quick to take care of it. I know this might not exactly convince you about the bifl quality of the backpack, but when I first got my backpack, there was a flaw in the stitching that caused one of the snaps to partially come off. However, emailed Everlane and they promptly gave me a label to send the backpack back and sent me a new one. They definitely stand behind their product. I can't quite put my finger on it, but just by feeling and looking at it, the backpack just seems to be undoubtedly high-quality.

A friend of mine, who was the one that referred me to the backpack, has owned his (the original snap backpack) for I believe like three years and it has nothing wrong with it whatsoever save for the faded colors which are inevitable when you've abused it every day like he has.

So I would definitely recommend this backpack and can see myself using it for years. And if you're still hesitant about the size, they also have a Mini Modern Zip Backpack which claims to be able to fit a 13" Macbook. I don't have experience with that however, and like I said, the Modern Snap has never felt bulky, but exactly the opposite. Hope I've helped! Feel free to use this referral link if you'd like! :)

Edit: Also, I've heard the Fjallraven Kanken recommended a lot. I've seen somebody with it and it looks fairly small but I can't tell you how it would hold up. Like the look of the Modern Snap better personally too.

> How big can my bag be with out needing to be checked?

Your airline will have all of this information listed. Typically the carryon height is 21.5-22" depending on the carrier.

If you're traveling with an actual suit and you don't want wrinkles, I'd recommend getting a bag like this one which is basically a garment bag that unzips. For the rest of your clothes, utilize packing cubes to be more organized and space efficient. A carryon is plenty big enough for four days, you just have to be organized.

You can also take a personal bag, which usually measures a max of 18x14x8; if you really want maximize space, you can get a cheap bag with those exact dimensions.

Just wear your coat and heaviest shoes with you on the plane, it's more comfortable than lugging them in a bag. Depending on how crisp your clothes need to be, you might want to get a travel steamer too.

u/MichaelWithAOnTheEnd · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I want to replace my colorful High Sierra backpack with something slightly more "adult."

I am considering a plain black JanSport like this that I would customize by adding a bow and monogram, kind of like this.

The look I am going for is casual (hence the backpack), classic (hence the classic Jansport silhouette), and girly (details like bow and monogram) without compromising functionality.

What do you think, people of FFA? I would love some ideas on where to get it monogrammed, where to find the right kind of bow/how to attach, and whether black is an appropriate choice or if I should go with a "neutral" print like polka dots or something. Thank you in advance!

Edit: another idea is this which may be a better choice for being "adult" because it's canvas.

Another edit: here is what I mean by a "neutral" print

Last (?) edit: I'm not sure I know what I want with this whole backpack thing after all. I love the ease and practicality of having a backpack rather than another type of bag, and since I am in academia, I can totally get away with backpack use, possibly forever. But I just haven't thought much about personal style since like, high school/college, and am kind of unclear on what sort of image I want to project. I guess I just gravitate toward practical things but also want them to be attractive in some way, and don't want to just randomly accumulate possessions based on convenience anymore- I would like to be more mindful about purchasing items in the future that contribute toward some type of cohesive image. Help is very, very welcome from literally any one of you who wants to assist me with getting a handle on the basics. I have already read almost all of the sidebar resources and absorbed lots of new info that way, but I think I might need more help than I can get from reading stuff.

u/MKorostoff · 3 pointsr/EDC

> if you always take pictures like these, could we see some older pictures?

Would love to share, but I don't think I have them any more. I did take a similar picture before backpacking in Europe, driving the American Southwest, and traveling through Israel, but I'd just text them to my Mom. They looked pretty much the same though, I have my packing list pretty set.

> also, you reall wont need anything warmer? not one long sleeve shirt ir even a windbraker?

I wore a hoodie on the plane. Still it was summer in Bangkok and Tokyo, so I was pretty good without a sweater, lol. The only time I was cold was at the summit of Mt. Fuji, though I bought some long underwear on the ground that really helped.

> what's your bag?

This. I was not satisfied with it, it hung really weird on my shoulders, 4/10 would not use again.

> what do you read on your kindle?

Siddhartha in Japan, The English Patient in Thailand. Loved both. Didn't have all that much time for reading though, I mostly did it on planes.

> no camera?

Used my phone camera. Tons of pictures here.

u/andr01dm · 3 pointsr/motocamping

For motocamping I picked up one of these: along with a waterproof duffle bag. Stuff my gear in the duffle and then into the pacsafe, which gets locked to the bike frame.

u/phoeniks · 3 pointsr/LifeProTips

These mesh bags are intended to protect travellers' backpacks, but a small one might suit your purposes. If you click the "one size" link on that page, it takes you to a cheap version for under $20

u/inflatablejerk · 3 pointsr/filmfashion

im also interested in this.
closest one i could find is this one, but it seems a little to small. I think i will be buying it soon.

u/SnappyCrunch · 3 pointsr/mallninjashit

What brand was it? I have the larger Kikkerland samurai umbrella, and it's one of the best umbrellas I've ever owned. Solid construction and makes a satisfying "thunk" sound when it opens.

u/TouchMyFacecake · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Okaaay, something impressive. Wow, this is hard. How about some cool websites?

  • My favourite: Weavesilk lets you make music with shapes!

  • Kind of self explanitory: The Fucking Weather

  • Awesome stuff that you'll want to buy (most is available on Amazon): This is Why I'm Broke

  • A really cool idea for a site, you answer multiple choice questions, every right answer donates rice to people who need it! Free rice

  • Some mentally stimulating and fun stuff: Sporcle

    This is what I would like to ask for! Why would it make my day you ask?

    A) I really need a new brolly (umbrella for y'all Americans).

    B) IT'S LIKE A SWORD, HOW FREAKING COOL IS THAT? I can also use it to poke the pigeons off of my windowsill.

    Great idea for a contest!

u/Parelle · 3 pointsr/boardgames

Two options I've used here:
For games I know I like, I either design or use others designs for Artscow bags. They have both drawstring and zip canvas ones (the latter best for game transportation)
Plenty of promo codes exist, if you're trouble finding one I'm happy to generate one - PM me. The best deal here is 10 bags for $20 shipped. There's also a Geeklist with completed bags which should also give you a feel for the size of them.

For games which either require a ton of bags (Castles of Burgundy) or just to have extras, I bought a set of these:
Dozen Bright Color Canvas Drawstring Bags

I think they're a little narrower than my husband likes for drawing tiles but they're not too bad. I use 4 or 5 of them in CoB.

u/plasmatorture · 3 pointsr/boardgames

The original box works fine: Put animal tiles, knowledge tiles, goods, buildings, and the center black tiles each in their own smaller portion of the insert. Leave them there for gameplay - when pulling new tiles just grab out of there without looking like you're pulling out of a cup. Everything else can get dumped in the big section since none of that needs to be randomized.

But I bought a set of novelty bags on amazon after a few games of that, and moved my copy of Agricola out of bags and into this box (which, incidentally, is superior to plano since it has rounded bottoms for each compartment). Now the 5 types of tiles that need to be randomized in Castles each have their own cloth bag, and workers, silverlings, castles/mines/boats, and everything else have their own plastic bag respectively.

u/J0BlN · 3 pointsr/Coachella

this one has lasted my three years including 15+ fests and tons of runs. It doesn’t have the largest capacity and it’s only one pocket but it worked well for me. Very tight fitting so no worries of it going anywhere during my dancing and I would definitely feel any thieves tug on it. Thing is they would-be thieves never see it cuz it’s covered by the bottom my shirt most of the time Just got a new more standard fanny pack though so curious to see how I like the change

u/clyde_drexler · 3 pointsr/running

I agree. This is the one that I use and it holds my phone (iPhone 6), car key, and card holder sized wallet with plenty more room.

I've never had any issues, but after all the comments/threads here and the /r/Lollapalooza sub I decided to get one of the SPIbelt running belts. Tried it on and it seems comfortable enough with space for my phone and easily hidden under my shirt.

u/Varixai · 3 pointsr/titanfall

Hey, for you and /u/Sogarde - Here's a post I wrote when someone asked what shirts were officially licensed. It's a good roundup of just clothing related merchandise at least:

That's an good question, it seems to vary. Here are some sites that I've found and their visible licensing situations:


  • Merchoid - Their About Us page says they only sell licensed products, and there's an officially licensed stamp on each product page. They even have several news articles about their officially licensed Titanfall 2 line.

  • Yellow Bulldog says they have Titanfall 2's entire swag lineup of officially licensed gear, including some clothing. (and are advertised around the web like this)

  • SportsDirect's T-Shirt is labeled official, yet no guarantees are offered on the product page or in general by the website.

  • Sites like Redbubble and Teepublic are obviously completely unlicensed; sites like this are simply storefronts for independent "artists" to sell their artworks. That can be anything from original artwork or just ripped/traced game assets. (it also explicitly says on these sites that these are "titanfall inspired" products created by fans)

  • Hot Topic's line makes no licensing claims at all and their About Us page says they sell both licensed and un-licensed merchandise.

  • There are some completely individual products that are said to be officially licensed as well, like this backpack.

Jansport Big Student if you want something that doesn't look tactical. They hold a ton of stuff and have a lifetime warranty from Jansport.

u/EmpressHotdog · 2 pointsr/RandomActsofMakeup

Oh I have a Jansport big student classic daypack! It's the only thing that will fit everything I need. I have a navy one, but I would get this one if I could, because it's my favorite color. I like solid colors and coral, so this would be my top pick. Also, maybe this is the backpack you're going to get?
Thanks for hosting!

u/LantianTiger · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Jansport. Seriously. I tried buying cheap backpacks for years, and I finally bit the bullet and bought jansport when my friend told me he'd had his since 7th grade (as we were graduating high school). I'm now starting my first year of grad school, and I've had mine since I started college (so 4 years now), and it still looks new. My friend's backpack is also going strong. No rips, it only looks dirty because of how long he's used it. Best part? Costs $30. If you're worried about a laptop compartment, just buy a laptop sleeve and stick it in there. Oh, and it has a lifetime warranty.

u/-filly- · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

fear cuts deeper than words

Edit #1 - Replaced #1 #2, #9, #13, #15, edited some text, added bonuses

Okay, so a lot of my items are similar, or are kind of "flexing" the rules, but I will leave official rulings up to you. Here goes!

  1. Something Grey - Strip of magnesium - This actually just got gifted to me. This coal trash can is silver, which is basically grey :D

    2)Something reminiscent of rain - Zen Garden - Flexing the rules. It's only related because it's a garden. An umbrella!! I don't have one of these, and I have no idea why.

  2. Food related - Pineapple corer/slicer

  3. On wishlist not for me (this is for my fiancee) - Apple Cider k-cups

  4. A book you should read - Everyone should have the Joy of Cooking

    6)Item less than a dollar - MP3

  5. Something related to cats - This is related because of that scene in "Christmas Vacation" where the cat gets electrocuted

  6. [Beautiful but not useful - Lego adoption of Brandenburg Gate](

  7. Movie everyone should see once - Not on wishlist - Harlan County, USA. This documentary is nearly perfect in every sense of the word. This movie is so powerful, and so real, it's just unbelievable. One of my favorites. I always suggest it when someone asks "what documentary should I see?"

  8. Something useful when Zombies attack - Kinect Your Shape Fitness Evolved - You need to be able to Outwit, Outrun, and Outlast.

  9. Profound impact on life - Guitar. I really want to learn how to play, and my dad was going to teach me, but he passed before he was able to. It would mean a lot to share that passion with him even though he's already moved on

  10. Add-On Item - Cat6 cable!!!

  11. Most expensive item -It's actually the guitar, so I went with the 2nd most expensive which is a Logitech G19 keyboard Nope. It's actually this amp.

  12. Bigger than a bread box - Mizuno backpack

  13. Smaller than a golf ball - Not sure if a k-cup would count, but I threw it in there. If it doesn't count, I will find something else It doesn't. Here's some ship and anchor cufflinks I really want for my wedding :)

  14. Something that smells wonderful - Kind of cheating, but a different k-cup. Donut shop coffee is the BEST. Changed to a different beverage. I have a horrible addiction to this stuff, and it smells wonderful (to me)

  15. SFW Toy - Legos are a toy!! :D

  16. Helpful going back to school - I listed the Zen Garden again because it's helpful to have something peaceful when going back to school

  17. Something related to your current obsession - I am OBSESSED with Lorde. I have stated this many times over the last week.


    BONUS #1 - I looked through your reddit history (not very hard, but I did look), and came up empty, so I'll just post something later that might fit.

    BONUS #2 - These blankets are made in Oregon, and look SUPER cool. Not on my WL (I have more than enough blankets), but I really like them.

    I may attempt the bonuses tomorrow, we will see. This is definitely a placeholder until rulings on some items are made. Fix'd :D

PacSafe 55 Secure Protector for Backpack or Bag

There are different sizes and brands, but I use one similar to that for when I'm staying in hostels or motels.

Still never leave my valuables in the room. It will deter thieves, but if someone really wants your bag, they'll find a way to take it.

Kit left adrift, must be a gift.

u/iLoveLights · 2 pointsr/backpacking

ha, working on a blog post about this right now.

Besides the normal portable battery, microfiber towel, etc. here are a few options.
Pakems: They look a bit silly but they are super light and comfortable and pack down tiny. Perfect for after a day of hiking or for wearing around a dorm.

[PacSafe Bag Protector] (]): They work well if you travel alone and want to go swimming or use the bathroom without having to keep an eye on your stuff.

Stuffa Wearable Carry-on: avoid the crazy fees for carry-ons and checked baggage

  1. Seared Tuna with Mango, Kiwi, Avocado Salsa:

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Gently lay the tuna steaks into the hot oil. Cook the tuna on one side for 3 minutes; remove to a plate. Pour the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil into the skillet and let it get hot. Lay the tuna with the uncooked side down into the skillet and cook another 3 minutes; remove from heat immediately.

  2. Dice 1 Mango, 3 Kiwis, 1 Avacado.

  3. Season with Lime Juice

  4. Serves 4.

  1. Life's a lot of fun. There's always something new to see, do, or laugh at. What'll tomorrow bring?

  2. They said that no one could climb Mt. Everest in an inflatable sumo suit. They said it was crazy to try to fly by jumping off the space while flapping your arms. They say it was madness to run with the bulls, naked and painted red. But one man proved them all wrong.

This is my EDC bag. It hold my laptop, a big notebook, a couple textbooks, laptop charger, 2-3 bottles, and some other odds and ends (pens, gum, meds, etc.) It is surprisingly large and after I waterproofed it, it's been my best EDC bag that I've had in the past few years.

Okay, I can't pick just one, so I present you the following. As you'll notice, all three are practical items, but that's because most people would/could use them all.

Most comfortable keyboard I've ever used.

Best remote control ever. Seriously, this thing is easy to program and can be customized any way you want. It's only limitation is the 5 device limit, but that's still enough for most (even me!). This is the model I have, but you may find another model by the same brand that better suits you.

This umbrella is not only head-turning cool, it's also really great quality that's above and beyond what you would expect from something that looks like a novelty. It's even cooler to me because I actually do Japanese swordsmenship, and the other members of our club/dojo are jealous.

Filson is the famed durable fabric briefcase/messenger. I have the 257 and I love it.

Navali has good prices for what they offer but my first weekender from them broke after like 2 uses. However, their customer service is great and I sent it back to be fixed/replaced. Their second one is still working fine but I haven't put it to heavy use since I got it.

Before my Filson, I had this Samsonite that I got from Amazon Warehouse that worked pretty well.

The game is over once all the jewels have been taken/discarded. You do not get your adventurers back, they stay until a dragon is defeated. The reason could be, because some magic cards let you love the jewels from one dragon to another, therefore screwing the other people over.

I love this game and used to bring it out regularly, but had to put it aside for a bit, so it doesn't get overplayed. I always play with the Advanced Rules.

The only problem with the game is trying to distinguish between the gold and silver gems.

The bags are a good idea. Here are some that might work really well, I own some myself, but don't know if they match EVERY color available in the game. It comes with 12 bags (2 of each color), so you might be able to use the extras on another game.

I'm now thinking about purchasing these again for this game. It will come in handy when using the blind thief ability. Thanks for the great idea.

u/RynoKenny · 2 pointsr/Boardgamedeals

On recommendation, I picked these bags up with the purchase as well

I didn't know until today that there were expansions

I'll check them out eventually, I've been making a rule that I need to milk the base game to almost boredom before purchasing expansions, no matter how good they are. Saves money on expansions for games I don't even really like and increases longevity of the game.

I upgraded recently from an Iphone 5s to an Iphone 7plus. I saw the SPIbelt recommended here. It fits great, and doesn't move around at all. You still have to get use to having a giant thing strapped to your waist though.

u/Some_Dinkus · 2 pointsr/C25K

I think a backpack is overkill. Just get a running belt or a Flip Belt. They've a much smaller profile, are much lighter, and won't bounce around since they're made of elastic and pull tight to the body.

u/herdbehavior · 2 pointsr/running

I have the SPIbelt with 2 attachable water bottles for runs where I don't want to bring my hydration vest. It works fine. I find it best to move the water bottles around on the belt as I run to minimize friction.

u/Spatulakoenig · 2 pointsr/consulting

Two things on your comments regarding bags that just have one large compartment and documents.

  1. I find a fold-over clipboard works well as both somewhere to have a small amount of personal paper/reading/print outs and a section divider for such a large compartment.

    Even the cheap ones look decent and the fold-over means even if you have to get it out of your bag, contents aren’t seen.


  2. I’ve found the Eagle Creek Pack-It series also really useful. Use the cubes for gym gear / random stuff, and the garment folder good for workwear - providing you can somehow deal with inevitable creases at the hotel which will be far fewer if all your shirts are non-iron.

    Garment folder:

u/atllauren · 2 pointsr/Atlanta

I have these -- this is just one set, there's are lot of other sizes that are sold as sets or individually. I've heard the eBags brand makes really good ones as well.

It keeps everything really organized. For shorter trips, I pack an outfit per cube and then you just open the cube and have everything right there. But longer trips (when I don't have enough cubes per day) I organize them by category. So for this trip, I have sweaters in one cube, leggings in one cube, jeans/nicer pants in one cube, etc etc. It keeps everything nicely contained and you can really fit more in your suitcase with them.

u/subtex · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Oops, yeah I totally forgot to take and upload some pics. I'll see if I can get some uploaded soon.

My thoughts so far: I'm very happy. I think the mini is the perfect size for how I pack (minimally and light). It's actually larger than I thought it would be even though I did check the measurements.

The canvas is really nice. Strong and clearly will be able to take a beating. The zippers run smooth and without any catches. Love the leather handles. Sturdy and smooth, soft leather.

The one downside is probably the strap. It's not bad at all, but when the bag is packed fully, I can see it messing with my shoulder if I have to haul it for prolonged times. I might look at buying the leather strap they sell as an upgrade.

I took the bag on a weekend trip and I had plenty of room to spare. A bit too much, actually. I could probably go for an even smaller version of this bag as a weekender. The mini to me will be a fine week long trip bag.

To give an example of what I packed (I use Eagle Creek packing cubes. this set: Eagle Creek Travel Gear Pack-It Cube Set and this set of "pack-it sacs" Eagle Creek Travel Gear Pack-It Sac Set), here's a list (I'm borrowing size references from one of the amazon reviews):

  1. Large packing cube (~10 x 14" - roughly the size of a large-format magazine).
  2. Two of the Medium packing cubes (9" x 7" - about the size of a small cereal box).
  3. One normal sized leather dopp kit.
  4. The large and medium sizes of the packing "sacs" were used. I use the large one as my dirty clothes bag, the middle sized one for cables, sketchbook, kindle), small one for
  5. Camera in camera bag (a panasonic g3)

    On the way down the clothes in there were:

  6. 2 t-shirts
  7. pajama pants
  8. tank top
  9. bathing suit
  10. 4 pairs of socks
  11. 3 boxers

    Coming back I was wearing the shorts, so the jeans I had been wearing on the way down were packed instead.

    All of that fit with enough room in the bag to still be able to collapse the top part of the bag down. It had a good 5" or so to spare as clearance still.

    The other thing I will mention is that the good and bad of the canvas is that the bag has no shape on its own. Until you stuff it with your gear, the bag is going to flop in on itself. This is bad if you do not have the bag packed enough to give it some shape. This is great if you plan on packing this bag into a bigger bag on a trip. It folds down smaller than a pair of jeans.

    Hope that helps!

    I'll try and get pics up soon.

u/GladioliRose · 2 pointsr/TheSilphRoad

I'm a daily messenger bag carrier but I used to have several backpacks. There are few i am considering to purchase as well. I'll list them below.


If you want something that will last you for the rest of your life, go tactical. These are great for bug-out bags as well. Some of them will be compiable with Hiker cosplay. Amazon


If tactical isn't your thing and you prefer something urban. Need a cool looking pack that lasts for a long time too? I got you; I have few suggestions. Herschel Supply , Arctic Fox , ASERF , Rhine , Blue Lounge , CaseLogic , and Convey.


If you want to go down on the messenger bag route like I did, then here I go ~! Timbuk , Tumi , MNMUR. I personally am a huge fan of Timbuk's messenger bags.

Sounds like you really want to know without going and picking up the free weights (which is definitely your easiest option).

That being said, if you REALLY want to know, go down to your favorite shopping mall, park your car, walk in, head on over to the your equivalent luggage store, ask the person working there for a hanging scale to measure your luggage with, buy it, take it to your gym, hook it up to your cable machine and do your exercise.

Alternatively, you can just buy this

Basically a portable safe, it's not going to stop anyone who's pre-mediated and determined to steal your stuff but 99.999% of theft from rooms while traveling is opportunistic (the maid has a poke around in your stuff).

I second the two straps comment. Get one of these! My campus is small too and there are days when I have to pack so much in it.

But in all seriousness, this is relatively inexpensive and has served me very well. The zippers are high quality. NB: the straps feel odd at first but then fit much better once you wear it a little.

For the size and price, it is very well-made and it has never given me trouble during heavy rain and wind. I carry it around in my bag every day in case of unexpected rain, and it would even fit in a purse.

I recently purchased a Lomo waterproof bag bag and a pacsafe secure protector for when I want to leave my stuff with the bike on days out. Its big enough to fit all mine and the missus gear (including boots, excluding helmets.)

It was a bit pricey, but Ive absolutely no issues with days out now and being able to change out of gear.

My buddy has one of these for the items that aren't in the panniers:

I've ridden in Guatemala, but that's it. Roads are fine on a dual sport or adventure motorcycle as long as you don't go fast. They're mostly fine for cars as well. That being said, an SUV with all terrain higher profile tires would be my choice of transport. You won't need it to do hardcore off-roading, but you'll be glad you have it when the roads start to suck. Some of those roads SUCK.

Kenneth Cole Risky Business

u/Bambooshka · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

    1. Leather! Like a few others have said, leather feels more mature. While I'm a student right now, hopefully this bag lasts me awhile and I can use it once I become a professional.
    1. It was a gift, but at the time it was about $200-$220.
    1. They sell it a The Bay (Canada), Kenneth Cole, or online.
    1. It's approaching a year and still going strong! It doesn't have any weak points, but the back isn't as firm as it used to be. BUT I previously had a canvas bag. I wore it really tight to my hip, so over the 2.5 years I had it, the bottom and side that rubbed against my leg eventually wore out and completely came apart.
    1. Awesome. It's retained the colour and quality of the original leather. I need to clean it/reseal it, but otherwise it's looking good!
    1. It has strong magnetic snap buttons. A lot of them either have straps, buttons, or a weird combination. They make it super convenient for throwing the top back on quickly without having to align any parts or worry about contents flying out.
    1. There could be more specific, compartmented storage I suppose. Johnston & Murphy sells some nice briefcase organizers that can help with that - they're just overpriced for the quality I'm looking at.

How about this one?

u/rainbowunicornloverr · 1 pointr/onebag

Thanks! I notice there are two styles, the Starter and Specter set. Did you use either of these?

u/snailwiz · 1 pointr/college

These guys seem to be pretty popular among college students.

I just stuff everything in the fjallraven kånken that I use for everything else.

u/GreySummer · 1 pointr/Kiteboarding

Get one of these (or similar, not necessarily this model ;-) ):

If you intend on traveling with kite gear, you have to make sure you have no surprises at the airport. It's one thing to go over the 23kg limit and have to pay extra, but it's another entirely to go over the 32kg limit and have your board bag simply refused. It almost happened to me on my way back from Morocco, not a good feeling.

Get this: Amazon

Don't fly Spirit. They are a horrible airline. You can try filing a bbb complaint but thousands have already. I imagine their fb/twitter/yelp pages are also full of bad reviews.

Also consider buying a portable luggage weighing device to use. I recommend this one I got from amazon:

u/Kiarnan · 1 pointr/Ultralight

I use one of these luggage scales and it works really well. I have a digital scale from harbor freight that I use for weighing individual items, but I use the luggage scale to weigh my pack before hitting the trail. The digital kitchen scales will be more accurate, but the luggage scale will give you a good ballpark weight.

I bought a hidden pocket that I'll be using for my trip in May. I figure that as long as a ride op doesn't see me putting stuff in or out of it, I should be fine.

u/dieterschaumer · 1 pointr/EDC

There's the Cache Belt

but you've only been able to preorder it for god damn three years now, and that's held me off from ordering it. Other than that a whole bunch of rando hidden money belts on amazon where you unzip a pocket along the inside of the belt, but that's rather annoying. Its perfectly fine for if you want this as emergency money, but as a hidden wallet it doesn't work so well.

Alternatively, and what I used for my trip through europe, is this: TSA didn't care, and you can fit your wallet, passport, money, a bunch of things in there. You slide your belt through it, and then tuck it inside your waistband. Totally invisible other than that band where it attaches to your belt. Its a bit awkward to take out, but you don't have to take off your belt at least.

After losing my umbrella to a wind gust I just Googled "strongest umbrellas" and got one off Amazon for $20. There were some more expensive ones, but this had stellar reviews and has held up very well through some strong wind. Just be aware there are different diameters, so make sure you don't get a tiny one (unless that's what you're going for) :)

u/rainbowterfly · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I bought myself this one a few months ago. It's great!

Unfortunately there isn’t a whole lot, since it’s an old game, but there is a backpack that seems pretty good. Everyone who got it says it’s good.

u/ScottSandry · 1 pointr/backpacking

Backpack/Bag advice? (mainly travel [airbnbs, hostels, couch surfing etc...], but knowing me I might end up in some "wilderness" moments at times such as long hikes and adventures.


So I have ordered this backpack and plan on using it for all my gear (cameras/lenses/laptop/gopros/batteries/etc...) and am currently looking for a 2nd bag that will house all my clothes/toiletries/etc... The biggest goal I want to accomplish with this bag is that i never want to have to check a bag. I currently have a small roller bag that is 20in x 13in x 7in similar to this but I'm not a fan of it. Ive been looking into this one as I feel packing it would be the easiest for most efficient packing but not 100% that it will be okay on all flights as a carry on along with my backpack being the personal item. One thing also to keep in mind with my 2nd bag is to fit my tripod as it wont fit into my backpack.


When it comes to packing: Ive read into several different styles from Rolling clothes, Vacuum Bags, to packing cubes. Ive seen pros and cons to all of them. Ive heard from long term travel to not use cubes because they take up space that can always be used for something else. The downfall to vacuum bags is that people say the lose air, also how to remove the air the best. I have looked at ones with pumps that plug into USB ports for power and ones with the hand pumps to remove air.


PS. Ive see some checklists of things to pack X amount of shirts/ pants/ shorts/etc... and was wondering if anyone has some lists as well i can look at to compare them all and figure out what would be best for me and give me a rough idea of what i can and cant bring.


I'm sure ill have more and more questions as time goes on while I get ready and prepare for my trip around the world in a few months (if everything goes as planned).



u/Brown_Sandals · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

I am currently looking for a good travel garment bag. I like the design of something like this, but not 100% sold on the reviews as it looks kind of cheap. Looking to spend no more than $150-200... Any recommendations?

u/1LB1 · 1 pointr/medicalschool

I have this one and I'm a huge fan since it has a compartment for your shoes as well.

u/HugoChavezRamboIII · 0 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I swear I'm not being facetious, but this one is pretty awesome.

Now, I know you're thinking 'that'll look stupid' -- but that's because you're thinking with your critical hat on. I bought one of these this time last year (was sick of crappy collapsible umbrellas always breaking), and have received countless compliments. The fact that it has a samurai handle isn't immediately obvious, and the people that do notice think 'heh, that's pretty cool.'

I know this is MFA, but consider this; have you ever seen an unfashionable samurai?

u/takearidewitme · 0 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Been using this one for 3 years. Works great. Steal core. Looks awesome. I get compliments all the time. I work in an office also

u/scouser916 · 0 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Check through Floto's store on Amazon, they have some amazing quality leather goods for extremely good prices

I have this weekender bag and judging by the quality of the leather and craftsmanship, it's going to last me decades and get better with age

u/KenzouKurosaki · 0 pointsr/BuyItForLife

So I've been using this samsonite for the past 3.5 years and it's in pretty good condition so far considering the abuse (rain and snow) it has taken.

You said you dont need a laptop pocket so I guess that's a plus.

u/ersatzryan · 0 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

I don't know about that one, but samsonite leather brief is on sale at amazon.

u/bulbafar · 0 pointsr/BuyItForLife

If you are determined on company, this might be to late, but Fjallravens Kanken is as buy it for life as it gets, and not awfully expensive. I just checked up on the one my father uses on daily basis, which have been going for 15-20 years by now, and the only sign of use is that the colour has faded.

u/Market0 · -4 pointsr/magicTCG

I fail to see the anti-theft. Just more pockets to steal from.

If you plan on leaving your bag around I'd get this:

Otherwise, vigilance isn't just a mechanic for cards.
