Back in September, I entered a contest on TravellingTwo to win a bag to store my cables. Up to that point, I’d been using Ziploc bags, but they’d always get damaged after a month or two and I’d have to get a new one. I tweeted their message and kept cycling.
A week later, I was contacted by Friedel from TravellingTwo to let me know that I’d won. She put me in touch with SFBags, the maker and they asking where I wanted the bag sending. As luck would have it, I was just north of San Francisco, where the bags are made, and so I arranged to pick it up in person.
Since getting my medium size Cableguy, I’ve been using it nearly every day. It’s now 7 months old and basically still looks like new. If you look at the video at the bottom, you can see inside the bag, but basically it has two large pockets and then several small ones. It’s big enough to hold all my cables (iPod, Kindle, GPS and laptop) as well as my camera charger in the large pockets and then I use the small ones for things like spare batteries. At $23, it’s definitely more expensive than using Ziploc bags, but I’m glad I have it. It does it’s job without any thought from me, the hallmark of a good product.
