New York Urban Adventure Logs – Post No. 3 - Stalking New York

image

We decided to go to breakfast at Norma’s, a famous New York brunching institution in midtown at Le Parker Meridien. It wasn’t just around the corner.

We knew we were close, but the scaffolding obscured our view and rain continued to cascade down like a wet veil.

It's not surprising really, when you think about it; the fact that in the past few years, right along with the explosion in popularity of the iPhone, we have seen a corresponding boom in the popularity of hardy gear designed to keep your mobile device safe in all circumstances, extreme or mundane, and look good while doing so too. It has a lot to do with what the Apple brand represents, and with the demographic Apple targets.

I spent 6 years living on a sailboat in the Caribbean, and during my time on the yacht, I developed a great appreciation for the Sun’s ability to keep my batteries powered up for free, wherever I happened to drop anchor.  Since my sailing days I find I'm always on the lookout for efficient ways to harness this abundant source of electrical power for personal use, especially as one who spends a great deal of my time outdoors, with my iDevices. So you can imagine how thrilled I was to learn about the SunVolt, by Gomadic.

EC-BC's Hercules: A hardy backpack that lives up to its name!

image

Everyone knows that the name Hercules is associated with great strength and integrity. Now, with their new backpack of the same name, EC-BC has done a most excellent job of creating a high-quailty backpack that embodies those same qualities of strength and integrity.

 

 

The Hercules is a stylish bag that looks nothing like a military issue pack, nor even a particularly rugged bag. But don't let its fashionably attractive appearance decieve you! The Hercules is every bit as tough and durable as many "military standard" backpacks! In fact, with its superior craftsmanship and intense attention to detail, the Hercules is actually more rugged than many military issue bags that I have evaluated over the years! Now that's saying something...
