Grab it Pack to holster your gadgets

front-photo “A guy needs his stuff.”

This is the introduction to the video for the Grabit Pack, which you can read after the jump. It is also a clear indication of the target audience: the man’s man. Yes, the guys that think that Tim Allen wasn’t funny because they didn’t believe Home Improvement was not an act. Guys who really do grunt like cavemen at the sight of an awesome power tool.

Or maybe they are targeting the guy geek. Hey man, I consider myself one of those, and my pockets tend to be filled with many gadgets. Gadgets, if I might add, that were not designed for the rigors of being in a pocket all day.

So why not create a convenient pack that looks like a holster out of the wild wild west? I can think of two words: airport security. Do you really want to be the guy who walks through the metal detectors wearing one of these things? The TSA guy would probably stick the wand where the sun don’t shine.

Still, I support the handiness of it, and it works well with a toolbelt. You can’t beat the $25 price tag, and you can even get a Left and Right set for $45. I would imagine that a Grabit Pack on each leg would probably make you look like Lara Croft.

  1. I actually GOT one of those, and it’s great – especially when you want to carry essential geek stuff (mobile, leatherman, PDA, etc…) but it’s too hot&humid outside to carry a full daypack.

    Of course, you COULD carry a man-purse… me, I’ve thought about wearing one of those military load-bearing systems, but they’re far more expensive and look even more threatening.

  2. given what this will contain most of the time, you either leave it in your check in luggage, or you take it of and pass it thru the x-ray while crossing the metal detector yourself…

  3. Haven’t had the opportunity to take mine into an airport yet, but I did take one into a courthouse and they didn’t seem to have a problem with it as long as I checked it through the x-ray machine. The only thing they did have a problem with was the Leatherman attached to the pack. But, yeah, the quick release clasps make that little task relatively painless.

  4. Your shoulder holster should be built to carry as much of your gear as comfortably possible. For example, you’ll get a lot more use out of a holster that includes pockets for loose items, space for your cards and ID, places for pens and space for other accessories. Think about what you’ll need to carry with you on a regular basis and then use that list to find the right shoulder holster. For example, if you plan on using your holster to carry your items while you’re traveling, you will want space for your passport. If you frequently make calls with a Bluetooth headset, you may need space to store the earpiece when it’s not in use.
