Overview
Ya know, I never thought I would be one to ever walk around “wearing” a bag unless it contained every pharmaceutical remedy I could think of to aid me with my aching bones, body or other sorted ailments.  Well, hey, I was wrong.  I know you “gadgeteers” are all loaded up for bear with your high-tech gizmos like I am and I just plain get tired of my car looking like the interior of the Nebuchadnezzar from the Matrix and trying to make sure I have everything available at a moment’s notice should I need one of them. Sure, it would be radical if I could “jack in” to the Matrix and instantly have a rack of whatever I wanted available whiz by, but we ain’t there yet Neophytes.  So, until then, we’ll have to go the conventional route and pretend like we’re back in school albeit without the geeky bags to go with it.  Thankfully, we have some companies out there who do the thinking and designing for us taking all that into consideration.  All at a great price.  Welcome to the world of Roadwired and their Podzilla gadget wonder bag! They could have put a “G” in front of the “P” and it would have made no diff to me.  This thing packs what you need into the smallest form factor possible.  It’s like the Swiss army knife of gadget bags and it looks cool besides. Let’s look at this “monster” and see just what you can pack in there.

The Podzilla Gadget bag comes in 5 colors

 

How about over 20 individual pockets and compartments, this would hold a full-sized 35, digital or video camera, batteries, chargers, USB cables, CD player, PMP, CDs and more.  It might seem small in dimensions (8”x 6.25” x 6.5”), but the choices in storage pockets makes it seem much larger.  All of the pockets and compartments are fully padded, segmented divider panels you can fasten in a number of positions, removable and can split the main compartment into other sections or support for a holster-style storage for a camera or other devices.  There are zippered, winged outer pockets for easy access and storage.  The entire bag is padded and the interior features elastic organizers, pockets, little bungee cords to keep that tangled mess of cables, lenses, chargers, etc. in order.  Nothing falls out of this thing either.  The padded side walls have polyethylene sheets sewn into the linings to prevent any compression from other items inside.  Hey, how about being able to wear it as a waist pack or carrying handle that’s actually comfortable to hold.  Yep, shoulder strap included as well with no cheap plastic clips.  Only metal there folks.  Did I mention the “secret” pocket for being able to hide cash, personal items, etc.? Use it.  It really works. 

Now, this beast is made from Denier Ballistic Nylon with neoprene protection outside, but the interior is lined with a smooth nylon cloth and throw in water repellant capabilities too.  And, how about the weight you ask? No bulging muscles required for this as it comes in at an incredible empty weight of 1.5pounds. 


Conclusion
I packed my video glasses, CD player, PMP, MP3 player, three USB cables, four Lithium ION batteries, USB thumb drive, 80 GB pocket HDD, digital camera, HD video camera, smart phone, some cash, change and almost the kitchen sink.  It all fit and I don’t need to pack around my entire car when I go somewhere.  Best damn gadget bag I’ve tested and seen yet.  Strap this bad boy on and let the monster do the work for you.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
