Timbuk2 Phoenix Cycling Backpack

Bought the Timbuk2 Phoenix Cycling Backpack together with the Timbuk2 Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag from Timbuk2 Singapore Store because I have a one-time media discount of 30%. The Timbuk2 Phoenix Cycling Backpack is retailing for SGD$169 and after the 30% discount, I paid SGD$118.30.

The Phoenix Cycling Backpack is just available in 1 size which is medium and there are 3 designs you can choose from, nylon carbon / ripstop carbon / nylon carbon, nylon gunmetal / revlon red / revlon red or nylon black.

I chose the nylon carbon / ripstop carbon / nylon carbon.

This backpack has a base capacity of 26L and is capable of expanding to 35L by just loosening the buckle at the bottom. It has a side access to the main compartment and a separate compartment for your laptop.

The laptop compartment fits up to 17″ laptop and you can access it from the side (known as Timbuk2′s Swing Around Access).

I bought this backpack for my upcoming trip to the US because I will be bringing my laptop along and I need the backpack to fit more stuff.

Previously, for most of my trips, I always brought along the Timbuk2 Q Backpack 2011, which can’t really fit much things inside.

Moshi Cardette 3 – USB 3.0 Card Reader + 2-Port USB 3.0 Hub

The Moshi Cardette 3 is in it’s third generation and hence the number 3. It also coincide with USB 3.0, I wonder did they refresh the product each time there is a major release to the USB specifications?

For the unaware, the Moshi Cardette 3 is a USB 3.0 Card Reader that has a built-in 2-Port USB 3.0 Hub. It is lightweight (weighing at 88g) which makes it suitable for carrying around together with your laptop (which is what I am doing). It is retailing for SGD$69.90.

It has an integrated USB 3.0 cable and does not require an external power adapter. It supports Ultra-High Speed (UHS-I), that allows transfer speed of up to 104MB/s. UHS-I is available in some SDHC and SDXC cards.

Just in case you are wondering, USB 3.0 is always backward compatible with USB 2.0 and thus if you are using an older computer that has USB 2.0 ports, it will work but it might not be as fast.

  • CompactFlash (CF Type I)
  • Memory Stick (MS, MS Duo & MS PRO Duo)
  • M2
  • MultiMediaCard (MMC)
  • eXtremeDigital (xD-Picture)

The order was placed on 31st October 2013 and I collected my bag on the same day they called me to inform me that my bag has arrived which is on the 14th November 2013. So it took exactly 2 weeks from ordering to getting to the Timbuk2 Singapore Store.

The price of the Timbuk2 Custom Classic Messenger Bag (Extra Small) from the Timbuk2 Singapore Store starts from SGD$185.

Ozaki O!coat 0.3+Pocket – Case With Cardholder for iPhone 5/5s

Ozaki O!coat 0.3+Pocket is an extremely thin (0.3mm) and lightweight (9g) case that is made using polypropylene.

The back of the case is leather textured and it has a card holder slot that holds one credit card (at most two). If you don’t like putting your credit card there, you can use it to hold reminders written on small pieces of paper (which is what my mom is doing) and I find that is a great idea! If not you can use it to hold up name cards or your EZ-Link/Octopus/Oyster card.

The package comes with a front screen protector and a microfiber cloth.

The O!coat 0.3+Pocket is available in 4 colours, Brown, Pink, Red, Black and white and is retailing for SGD$38.90 at iStudio, EpiCenter and Infinite.

PS: When I heard of the brand Ozaki (Ozakiverse Singapore), I thought it is a Japanese brand, but instead, it is a Taiwanese brand. It is brought in by DigitalHub (Facebook Page), which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ban Leong (Facebook Page).
