Bartaile C12 Bag :: Drive By

An Alaskan bar-tailed godwit is the world record holder for the longest non-stop migratory flight by a land bird – 11680 kilometers. Fun fact, but what does it have to do with bags? You may never have heard of a bar-tailed godwit before. But Bartaile have. The brand takes inspiration from this plucky bird that can travel awe-inspiring distances without stopping.

Bartaile C12

Labeling themselves as a “lifestyle brand for people going places”, Bartaile’s first release is the C12 Bag. So is this bag tough enough to go the distance while also being bold enough to adapt to different environments? I was keen to find out, and Bartaile were kind enough to send me a C12 in Heathered Grey to test out. Also, just so you’re aware from the start, our very own Taylor Welden provided his industrial design expertise in the creation of the C12. Did he ask us to review it? Nope. Bartaile reached out independently. Will the association affect my review? Nope. You should know us by now. 😉 Just keeping everything upfront from the start…

Bartaile C12

Who It Suits

If you’re looking for a bag with multiple carry options, a stylish work bag with office-friendly aesthetics, or a versatile day bag for use on your travels or about town, the C12 fits the bill. The unisex design also makes it a suitable choice for both male and female users.

“If you’re looking for a bag with multiple carry options, a stylish work bag with office-friendly aesthetics, or a versatile day bag for use on your travels or about town, the C12 fits the bill.”

Who It Doesn’t

If you need to carry a lot of gear, or bulky or awkwardly-shaped items, there are better options out there. The compact and slim design of this bag means you’re not going to be able to cram a bunch of stuff in with merry abandon. Also if you’re looking to roam in the outdoors or get around by bike, again, there are better options out there for your needs.

“If you need to carry a lot of gear, or bulky or awkwardly-shaped items, there are better options out there.”

The Good

This is one classy-looking pack. The design is elegant and uncluttered, making it versatile enough to suit a variety of environments. Work. After-work drinks. Exploring new places on your travels. This bag will look good wherever you take it. You can also get flexible with the contents. For example the bag is more than capable of holding small EDC, a laptop and documents for work settings, an outer layer and snacks for your downtime on the go, or even a change of clothes and toiletries for an overnight trip if you’re a light packer. You aren’t going to get away with supplies for a multi-day trip (unless you nail minimalist packing), and you’re not going to fit bulky sports equipment. But then, the bag isn’t designed for such things.

“This is one classy-looking pack. The design is elegant and uncluttered, making it versatile enough to suit a variety of environments.”

Bartaile C12

The C12 bag features an understated combination of water-repellent coated canvas and Nappa leather. I got caught in heavy rain for about half an hour with the pack and it did keep the water at bay. However, the zippers aren’t water resistant and the bag isn’t designed to be waterproof, so don’t push your luck if you don’t have to. There is a leather zipper shield on the front exterior pocket that helps protect against the elements, but no cover for the main zipper.

Bartaile C12

Speaking of the YKK zippers, they have a little resistance to them, but in a good way. You know they aren’t going to open accidentally, but when you do need to open them, the action is smooth. There are also leather zipper pulls that you can hook a finger in, and which are a good length for convenient use with or without gloves on.

Bartaile C12

Bartaile C12

I really like the organization that the C12 provides. It’s thoughtfully positioned and just enough to be useful, without becoming cluttered or overkill. On the exterior of the bag is a good-sized front pocket that offers quick access to frequently used items such as a phone, keys or wallet.

“I really like the organization that the C12 provides. It’s thoughtfully positioned and just enough to be useful, without becoming cluttered or overkill.”

Bartaile C12

Inside the main compartment is a dedicated laptop compartment on one side, and three pockets on the other side. The laptop compartment is well padded and slightly suspended to protect your tech. The three pockets include an open slip pocket, a zipped pocket with a microsuede lining for delicate items, and a snap pocket for valuables or other small items. The pockets are a good size and shape to hold a variety of items such as a phone, laptop mouse, cables, wallet, or other EDC. Even better, they are positioned high up near the top of the bag, which provides easy access to the contents and keeps your gear out of crush zones.

As touched on briefly above, the bag can also be carried in a variety of ways. The straps are easy to unclip and adjust to your desired position, allowing you to carry the bag as a backpack or shoulder bag. Alternatively you can remove the straps and use the top grab handles to carry the bag as a tote.

Lastly, it’s not cheap (the Heathered Grey version is $225), but with its elegant looks, versatile design and quality feel, I think it represents good value for money.

Bartaile C12

The Not So Good

First off, I want to mention that overall the quality of the construction is great. The stitching is tidy and the bag feels well put together. I didn’t experience any issues with construction failure, except for one thing. The bag has an attached key clip which came off without any demanding use on my part. One day I simply lifted it to put keys on and the action caused it to come away completely from the bag. From the looks of things it seems like it was glued on. I would like to think this is a one-off construction anomaly, as I didn’t experience any other build failures and as mentioned, the overall construction is solid. However, it did happen, so I’m putting it out there.

“The bag has an attached key clip which came off without any demanding use on my part.”

Bartaile C12

While it is simple enough to slip a laptop into the laptop compartment, I found the resting place of my laptop a little too close to the main zipper for comfort. Width-wise there was no problem, but whenever I closed the bag I had to be careful if my laptop was in it as the main zipper sometimes caught on the laptop. And metal zipper teeth connecting with your tech is not a pleasant sensation. For me personally, a useful improvement would be adding a little bit of height (a couple of centimeters or so) to the bag to avoid this. Out of interest, my laptop measurements are approximately 37cm x 25cm x 3.5cm, so this may not be an issue depending on your laptop size.

“While it is simple enough to slip a laptop into the laptop compartment, I found the resting place of my laptop a little too close to the main zipper for comfort.”

The straps could also do with some padding or perhaps being a little bit wider to improve carry comfort when carrying a lot of weight. At present, the straps are leather with a material backing that is soft to the touch (and won’t chew into your clothes), but the material backing provides minimal padding. This wasn’t much of a problem when I wasn’t carrying a lot of stuff, but with heavier loads (such as a laptop and bottles) the weight starts to become noticeable in backpack and messenger mode.

“The waist straps could also do with some padding or perhaps being a little bit wider to improve carry comfort when carrying a lot of weight.”

Bartaile C12

Bartaile C12

Carrying the bag in tote form makes weight less of an issue, as the carry handles are comfortable. They have curving edges and sort of nest into one another so they don’t dig into your hands. While this is fine for short distances, you’re still going to want comfortable backpack straps for covering longer distances.

Bartaile C12

Verdict

Overall, I really like the Bartaile C12. I think it’s an elegant and versatile bag that you can get a lot of use out of in diverse situations. While there could be some improvements made with the laptop compartment and straps, the organization suits my needs well, the choice of carry options is useful, and I enjoy the look and feel of the bag. As I mentioned above, I do think the bag is good value for money, so if you’re looking for a stylish and multifunctional bag this is definitely worth considering.

The Lanier Briefcase by Nock Co. is Now Available

the-lanier-briefcase-by-nock-co-kickstarter

When I last wrote about Nock Co.’s Lanier briefcase last September (2016), it was still just a Kickstarter project, albeit one that got funded within the first day.

Here’s what I said:

They were nice enough to send me a Lanier prototype for testing prior to the project launch, and I’ve gotta say, I love the build quality of this thing. It simply feels great to hold and use, right down to the zippers (which are of the YKK variety, by the way). The main compartment has more than enough room for my iPad, keyboard, and Confidant; the front zipper pocket is where my charger goes; and the removable pouch is perfect for the memo books, earbuds, and writing utensils.

And now, the Lanier is available for direct purchase at Nock Co.’s site for $98. The Black/Aqua prototype they sent me is still something I use almost every day (basically whenever my wife and I need to do work away from the RV). It fits everything I listed in that first post plus my wife’s iPad 4 + keyboard case and our son’s Amazon Kindle Fire Kid’s Edition (you know, the one with the thick blue shell). It’s a tight fit with all that stuff but it works.

After nine months traveling around the country with this thing, I can definitely attest to its quality and durability. My only quibble is that I wish there were a way to attach a shoulder strap, but even that’s not too big a deal. Get one for yourself and thank me later.

Torba EZ_Duffle Bag [Kickstarter]

Torba EZ_Duffle Bag [Kickstarter]

If you love large, modular travel bags, the EZ_Duffle by Torba is a Kickstarter project that should pique your interest.

Clocking in at 20″ x 9″ x 11.5″, this duffel (which is how I prefer to spell it) is a versatile, modular bag that aims to keep you organized so you can grab what you need, when you need it. It’s loaded with 22 pockets, compartments, loops, and straps that can be reconfigured in a variety of ways depending on what you need to pack inside. When the bag’s empty, it twists and folds down (origami-style) into a compact form for easy storage between trips.

Watch the demo video to get a feel for what the bag can do:

VIDEO

The main portion of the EZ_Duffle can exist as one enormous compartment, or you can use one or two interior dividers to create three compartments — a medium-sized one in the middle and a smaller one on each end. There are also a couple of detachable modules that fit into those two smaller end pockets if you need them:

  1. Electronics module — Equipped with a dedicated smartphone pocket, a padded tablet compartment, a documents pocket, two mesh pockets for all your small items, and pen loops.
  2. Flexi-dividers module — Allows for either vertical or horizontal stacking of bottles, lunch boxes, accessories, garments, etc.

torba-ez_duffle-bag-kickstarter-2

A vented laundry compartment on the back of the bag gives you a great place to store dirty clothes, while the spillproof pocket on the inside of the main flap is great for toiletries. The multipurpose interior strap can be used to keep items like garments, shoes or your laptop securely in place.

As of this writing (June 24th, 2017) there’s about a week left before the Kickstarter project is officially funded, and they’ve already more than tripled their funding goal. They’ve still got some early-bird reward slots available too, so you can back the project at the ~$155 (USD) level or higher to get an EZ_Duffle of your own.

The EONE Bradley Watch

the-eone-bradley-watch

The EONE Bradley is a handsome timepiece that can be read by either sight or touch, making it nice for when you need to check the time discreetly — during meetings, at the movies, under the dinner table while suffering through boring conversations, etc — but it’s especially awesome for those with impaired vision. It’s named for Brad Snyder, a former US naval officer who lost his vision to an IED explosion while serving as a bomb diffuser in Afghanistan and persevered to become a Paralympic gold medalist.

The way you use it to tell time with touch alone is by feeling its raised markers and the two magnetized ball bearings that travel around the watch face in separate, recessed tracks — one for the minute and one for the hour. If you accidentally knock either ball bearing out of its magnetic field, a simple flick of the wrist swirls them back into place. Takes a bit of practice to get the hang of it, but once you do, you’ll appreciate the ingenious, understated design.

They have a number of designs available on Amazon, my favorite being the Voyager silver ($325), which also comes in a cobalt version if you shop from Eone’s site directly.

J. Kenji López-Alt is Opening a Restaurant in the Bay Area »

Longtime readers of this column, you had to know I was going to link this one: Our favorite food scientist, J. Kenji López-Alt of Serious Eats, is planning to open a real-life German/Austrian-style beer and sausage hall called Wursthall in San Mateo, California.

Ellen Fort of Eater has the scoop:

“We don’t want it to be a place to go to Instagram and leave, we want it to be a neighborhood hangout,” said López-Alt. “Lots of younger ppl are moving there who are pushed out of more expensive places further North and South. We want to be on the forefront of modern San Mateo, and make it a good neighborhood spot.”

Not a lot of details about the place just yet, but you can follow @wursthall on Twitter and/or Instagram for updates. I know I will.

+ Related reading: J. Kenji was recently profiled by Epicurious as part of their list of the 100 greatest home cooks of all time:

Even when he’s not moving, he’s moving, fiddling with a stray iPhone adapter plug as he is asked to consider his uncanny ability for getting people to care about the science of their food. “People need something they’re familiar with, something to latch onto and pique their interest and maintain it. And if you jump straight into science, nobody’s going to care,” López-Alt says. He jiggles the iPhone adapter. “But if it’s the science of mashed potatoes, then people do care.”

The Way You Draw Circles Says a Lot About You »

Thu-Huong Ha and Nikhil Sonnad of Quartz share some interesting psychology behind why people of various countries tend to draw circles the way they do (clockwise or counter-clockwise, respectively):

Together these studies show not only that culture and handwriting shape the way people draws abstract shapes; they also suggest our tendencies get stronger over time. The more we write, the more our habits become ingrained. […] There are countless ways that we subtly, unconsciously carry our cultures with us: the way we draw, count on our fingers, and imitate real-world sounds, to name a few. That’s the delight at the heart of this massive dataset.


Accent Expert Breaks Down 6 Fictional Languages From Film & TV »

Remember that video I linked in November where dialect coach Erik Singer analyzed the accents of 32 Hollywood actors? Well, Wired brought him back to do another video, but this time he examines six fictional languages from film and TV — or as he calls them, “constructed languages” (“conlangs” for short):

  1. Sindarin (Elvish language) from Lord of the Rings
  2. Na’vi from James Cameron’s Avatar — (Side note: If you ever get the chance, you’ve got to check out the new Pandora land in Disney World’s Animal Kingdom, particularly the two big rides, “Flight of Passage” and “Na’vi River Journey”)
  3. tlhIngan Hol (Klingon language) from Star Trek
  4. Parseltongue (snake language) from Harry Potter
  5. Dothraki from Game of Thrones
  6. High Valyrian, also from Game of Thrones

As bonuses, he also goes into languages like Ewokese, Shyriiwook, Mork Speak, Groot Speak, Furbish, and more.

City Trees Suffer from Not Getting Enough Sleep »

Melissa Breyer of TreeHugger shares some interesting findings by German forester Peter Wohlleben — author of the best-selling book, The Hidden Life of Trees — about the effects of streetlights on trees at night:

Urban trees, like much of the natural world, have a hard time when the lights are left on all night.

“They also have to sleep at night,” Peter Wohlleben told the audience at the Hay Festival of Literature in Wales. “Research shows that trees near street lights die earlier. Like burning a lamp in your bedroom at night, it is not good for you.”


Why You Should Define Your Fears Instead of Your Goals »

Back in April, Tim Ferriss gave a vulnerable TED talk about using the tenets of stoicism to overcome fear and self-paralysis to take action, especially when it comes to the harder choices in our lives:

I can trace all of my biggest wins and all of my biggest disasters averted back to doing fear-setting at least once a quarter.

It’s not a panacea. You’ll find that some of your fears are very well-founded. But you shouldn’t conclude that without first putting them under a microscope. And it doesn’t make all the hard times, the hard choices, easy, but it can make a lot of them easier.

A great reminder that most of the battle is in our own heads.
