Tools & Toys lists their favorite gadgets, designs, and gear of 2012. Making the list is our Smart Alec backpack:
"This year, I ordered an all-black Tom Bihn Smart Alec backpack. It’s got tons of space, but is comfortable, even when fully loaded. Tom Bihn has a ton of accessories to trick out your bag, and I use several, mainly for cable storage. If you’re like me and have lots of gear to haul, you really should check out this backpack."
