Three bags, for three needs. In this quick feature, we’re looking at Moshi bags that handle the various needs of members of the team.
Vacanza Travel Bag (Charcoal Black) | Rodneil
While browsing through Moshi’s website looking for the kind of everyday bag I need, I didn’t even think to look at their weekender series. My first choice was the Carta Compact Messenger Bag. But good thing our Associate Creative Director pointed me in the right direction.
You see, I bring A LOT of stuff so I need a bag with plenty of room. But I also didn’t want it to be a backpack. I already look like an adult mutant ninja turtle as it is. A bulky backpack will only solidify that image. Naturally, I don’t want that. Thankfully, we spotted the Vacanza Travel Bag and I kid you not, it is EVERYTHING I have always wanted.
I like to just grab and go. That’s why my default way of carrying it is with the handles. It’s easy to lug around despite the number of items inside.
It does have a strap so you can carry it like a shoulder bag. I always have it handy with me but in the few weeks that I’ve had the bag, I haven’t exactly needed it so far.
Carries everything I need
On the daily I carry my camera, a pouch-like thing for my cables, power banks, and my WF-1000XM4 earbuds. Then of course a laptop, whether that’s my trusty 13” M1 MacBook Pro, or whatever laptop I’m reviewing which can range from really compact ones to the bulky gaming types.
Beyond what’s mentioned, I carry any number of devices that we’ll shoot. That can be up to four smartphones, or a variety of smart accessories and wearables. They all fit in nicely since the bag is super spacious.
There are also quick access pockets where I usually put my hand sanitizer, vaccination card, and bluelight glasses.
I haven’t been able to go on a vacation with it yet, but when I do, I’ll make sure to bring the extra bags and pouches inside which can be used for used clothes.
Overall, it’s been EXACTLY everything I need.
Urbana Navi Travel Briefcase (Herringbone Gray) | MJ
Having the liberty of working literally anywhere, I’m always on the lookout for a stylish bag that can carry all my essentials, without looking like a native urban dweller. Think: dark, bulky briefcases and heavy backpacks. Moshi’s Urbana Navi Travel Briefcase in Herringbone Gray perfectly suited my style and preferences.
It’s lightweight and easy to carry using its handles. If you’re the sling type, it comes with a removable strap that you can easily store in one of its discreet compartments. (Surely, I’m not.)
On the outside, this Moshi briefcase looks small but it’s spacious enough to fit a 13-inch Macbook Air. Its padded sleeve inside comes with small compartments that perfectly snugs your power bank, extra phone, pen, and a few, small essentials.
There’s also an RFID pocket where I store the cards I need. I feel assured knowing my important cards are protected in a separate pocket, and it’s conveniently placed where I can easily reach them to enable my cashless lifestyle.
Ever since I had my hands on the Urbana Navi, I haven’t let go of it. It’s become an everyday companion — for work meetings and even errands on the bank and school. I’m certain it’s an ideal space for my gadgets when I travel on a plane soon.
Carta Compact Messenger Bag (Vintage Brown) | Vincenz
Being always that indecisive person in the team, it took me some time before I decided to choose Moshi’s Carta Compact Messenger Bag in its Vintage Brown colorway. I almost withdrew my pick after knowing MJ made first dibs on this bag but I thought this is best suited for my needs.
I’ve always wanted a bag that feels light when worn yet looks stylish and can still fit my essentials whenever I go outside for a work shoot. Unlike other offerings from Moshi that look too serious or curated for the business-minded, I’m looking for that bag where I can pair it to my completely casual attire — and the Carta Compact is the best candidate for this.
This may be a hard color to pair on with #OOTDs, but my wardrobe mostly consists of shirts and button-downs ranging from black to orange and definitely the “earth tone palette” in either dark brown, khaki, tan, green, and even cream.
I also thought this would be the perfect addition to my tan-colored bag collection. And while the brand is totally different, I like how it’s also made with the same Daily Vegan Leather material such as my satchel, tote bag, and a smaller sling bag. This means it’s weather-resistant and I don’t have to worry about sudden splashes of water or rain when I’m outdoors.
Compact but spacious
With more pockets inside this Moshi bag, I can easily separate my belongings. I carry my sharp home keys, vaccination card, and coin purse. I separate them from the devices I bring such as a pair of wireless earbuds, an external SSD, and the four phones I’m currently holding.
Storing items in different pockets will also help me locate the items easier without mixing up everything inside. And just like in MJ’s Urbana Briefcase, this one also has a pocket with an RFID shield in it so it blocks out unwanted card taps from our wallets.
Moreover, the Carta Compact was also able to fit my other usual belongings such as a 10,000mAh powerbank for the phones, a larger 26800mAh powerbank for my laptop, a 100W GaN charger with two USB-C to USB-C cables plus one USB-C to Lightning cable, and even an extra shirt.
If there’s one downside, it’s the fact that it can only fit a smaller 13-inch laptop. I’m currently using a 15-inch MacBook Pro so I haven’t really tried to use it with my laptop inside. But judging by the sleeve opening, the latest M1 Pro 14-inch MacBook Pro can actually fit inside – and I hope I can have mine soon so I can try and finally see if it really fits. 🥺👉🏼👈🏼
OPPO Reno8 T: Ultra Night Portrait
Taking the Reno8 T on date night
@gadgetmatch OPPO has a new phone and we’re lovin’ it 😉 #OPPOReno8T #ThePortraitExpert #OPPOGoldenHour ♬ Pebbles – Official Sound Studio
We’re taking a closer look at the latest OPPO Reno8 T. A modern and sleek-designed smartphone that’s sure to turn heads.
OPPO Reno8 series has been making waves in the market for its impressive camera capabilities. So I wanted to see for myself how well it performs in different light situations.
We went to a rooftop cafe that I’ve been wanting to visit, where we watched the sunset and spent a lovely night out.
We chose a spot with minimal light since I really wanted to see how the Reno 8T would handle shooting portraits in low-light conditions.
I took a few shots on the same spot trying out the portrait, photo, and the night mode.
I was totally impressed but not surprised by the results. The background was well-lit, giving out a more professional look.
Even in these busy surroundings, I’m still amazed by the clarity and popping color of these photos. Of course, foodie shot for my instagram updates.
Aside from the outstanding camera performance, I’m loving the upgraded orbit light and fiberglass-leather design finish plus the new leather stitching. And oh, look at that dazzling sunset orange color which adds a bit of personality to the phone. it feels comfortable to hold this since it’s also lightweight.
Another night well spent captured by the ultra night portrait feature of the oppo reno 8T—really a game-changer.
