Hideo Wakamatsu Super Hybrid Gear II: awesome road-warrior travel-backpack
My beloved backpack bit the dust last month and I’ve been on a quest for
a replacement bag ever since. Last week, I found such a bag, and I’ve
travelled extensively with it since and am prepared to pronounce it
The bag is a Hideo Wakamatsu Super Hybrid Gear II; a hard-shell pack
that appears to contain some kind of Tardis, as I have been able to fill
it with my two little gear pouches, a pencil case, my sunglasses, my
document sleeve, my laptop, a power adapter, two boxes of business
cards, a book, a mini-multidriver, a mini-maglite, and a Moleskine. For
all that it’s got a solid layer of armor, it still weighs in at less
than three pounds; the straps and rear are well-padded, with a chest
clip. There’s an integrated, Velcro-closing laptop sleeve (already saved
my ass at the Dallas Fort Worth TSA checkpoint, when I nearly dropped
my laptop on the floor). I’m also quite enamored of the slit pocket that
can be opened without opening the main body of the case – perfect for
train tickets, itineraries, etc; there’s a second slit-pocket containing
The $109 bag comes in silver (they appear to have discontinued the navy
blue and khaki green models; I bought the last green one in the store).
My wife’s had a Hideo backpack for five years that looks and wears
great; I love their design sense, which marries simplicity and
practicality with very spare lines.
I have a nice little semi-rigid Samonsite spinner for overnight use,
but when that one wears out, I think I’m going to replace it with the Hideo equivalent; it’s even lighter than the Samsonsite, and shares the excellent interior design of the Super Hybrid Gear II.
Tama bang maglit ako kasi ngbasketball siya? Answer pls
No, dapat suportahan mo siya dun sa bagay na nakakapagpasaya sa kanya. Tsaka wala namang masama dun, naglalaro lang ng basketball. Kung di ka mapanatag, samahan mo siya, manood ka sa laro nila. Dapat intindihin mo siya, e kung di siya nagpaalam, yun pwede kang magalit! Hehe
Tama bang maglit ako ksi umalis sya ng wlang paalam skin?
Pwede kang magalit, lalo na kung lagi mo siyang pinapaalahanan na dapat magpalaam sa tuwing aalis siya. Nakakadisappoint kaya yun kasi di niya nagawa. Pero hindi yung galit na pupunta na sa hiwalayan, konting tampo lang, ganun. At sabihin mo sa kanya na dapat di na mauulit yun.
Around here people enjoy throwing trash out on the side of the road so I’m always out picking it up. Today I found this mini maglite on the side of the road with a leaky battery stuck in it. In the process of hammering the old battery out I messed up the switch. No big deal right. It turns out they want $10 for the tiny plastic switch. I fired up the soldering iron and added a new tab to the broken switch and it works as good as new. Total cost was $0. Tools used: hammer, soldering iron, scissors.
Picked up this leather sheath kit from @tandyleather yesterday. Dyed and stitched it today. Holds a #swissarmyknife as large as the #deluxetinker, and is made for a mini maglite, in this case, the LED Pro. Has a nice steel belt clip too. Also seen is the #PCL #leather wallet from @pclfire #gshock #rangeman #leathercraft #leathersheath #flashlight #lanyard by @thirdeyetactical
