I recently watched Maverick's excellent YouTube video on the Tom Bihn Side Effect, which is currently available on the YouTube Tom Bihn MFG Channel. The video left me wondering about a few things...
I currently own a Side Effect, wear it as a hip-pack, and I constantly carry my cell phone, eyeglasses (in hard carrying case), wallet and little bottle of hand sanitizer with me everywhere. I find my Side Effect to be indispensable.
Maverick shows one of the main compartment's internal pockets holding an Apple iPhone. Are there many Side Effect users here that carry an iPhone in there like that? (I currently use a bulky Tracfone; a Motorola C139, and it's a little awkward, mostly because of its buttons and shape) I was wondering what it would be like to carry an iPhone or an iPod Touch in one of those internal pockets. Also, what would happen if you carried an iPhone or iPod Touch around with it clad in one of those protective "bumper" skins? Would it still fit?
I typically carry my eyeglasses in the hard case I bought with them at the Wal Mart optician. The case is pretty nice for a cheap, hard case. I'm really concerned about protecting my eyeglasses. They are wire-rimmed. What other options do I have for carrying my eyeglasses?
