Here’s my Syncwire Travel Case Gadget Bag Review. It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a bag or case of some description. So, when Syncwire reached out to me I was eager to get my hands on their Gadget Bag.
I had already heard of Syncwire, I currently use a few of their braided cables which are fantastic. I had high hopes that this bag would live up to those high quality standards that their other products display.
Once the mail arrived I ripped open the package and got straight on with the review. I was keen to find out if this would replace the STM Wrapper Dapper as my main tech travel case.
So, let’s get into the review.
Syncwire Travel Case Gadget Bag Review
This is the type of product that you don’t realise you need until you get your hands on it. It’s for those of us who, when travelling, pile a load of tech into your carry on bag, but then proceed to chuck all of the charging cables and accessories loose into your suitcase.
That’s where the Syncwire travel case gadget bag comes in use. It’s a really handy sized case / pouch that you can use to store all of your charging cables and devices that you don’t want cluttering up your backpack.
The organised pouches help keep all of your tech accessories protected and stored safely. It can also help you find that charger in a hurry without having to rummage through your entire suitcase. It makes it so much easier to find what you need in a hurry.
The Syncwire travel case gadget bag is designed to be really tough and look good too. It’s stylish grey hard-case finish and black zips look great. But, looks aren’t everything, I need to make sure it performs as well as it should. It needs to protect my day to day gadgets as well as keeping them organised.
First Impressions Of The Syncwire Travel Case Gadget Bag
First impressions are a measure I always like to include in my reviews. It’s really important to me because I almost always immediately know if I’m going to like a product or not just by that first look inside the box.
So what are my first impressions of the Syncwire Gadget Bag? It’s much better than I thought it was going to be.
The entire unboxing experience was great. I’ve mentioned it countless times now, but I really do like a brand that cares about their product packaging. Syncwire have done a fantastic job in terms of the packaging design.
The gloss white background and the high resolution product imagery is a great combination. Before you’ve even opened the box it feels like a premium product. And it only get’s better from here.
Opening up the box you’re greeted with the Syncwire Travel Case Gadget Bag wrapped in white tissue paper to protect it in transit. I’m really impressed here because they could have quite easily opted to encase it in an abundance of single use plastic and it would have probably worked out cheaper for them to manufacture.
The reason I like the paper wrapping so much, aside from it being recyclable and enabling me to reduce the amount of single use plastic I’m responsible for, is the fact that it increases the anticipation as you remove the paper to reveal the product. It’s quite exciting and only adds to the fantastic unboxing experience I mentioned earlier.
So far so good then. Let’s have a look at how well built this gadget bag is.
Build Quality & Features
When it arrived and I first saw the gadget bag I thought that it was slightly overpriced. At $17.99 / £13.99 it’s certainly not the cheapest option on the market, but is it a case of paying that little bit extra for a quality item?
That certainly seems to be the case here. The build quality is exceptional and I could not find one fault with it! Not even one loose stich or scuff mark to speak of.
I’ve reviewed a lot of things recently. So I wanted to check I wasn’t over looking something so I asked my wife to take a look too. She also couldn’t find one single fault with it.
On the front of the case is a subtle black embossed logo which looks good against the grey fabric. On the far edge of the case is a carry handle but I’m not too sure if I’d use this much. It’d probably be slipped into a suitcase or backpack.
The zipper feels strong, it works well and it doesn’t feel like it’s poor quality, in fact it feels quite the opposite. It’s been expertly stitched to the body of the case, which adds overall strength to the chassis.
The hard case design feels really quite robust, it does have a bit of flexibility which doesn’t concern me much. If it’s too rigid, all of the force of a drop would transfer right through to the items inside. It needs to be a fine balance of give and rigidity and in my opinion that balance is pretty much spot on.
In terms of trying to come up with a test to find any flaws in the build I decided I’d try and rip the handle off! I know, it’s quite extreme but I thought It’d really test how strong the stiches are.
And the result of this extreme stress test? I couldn’t do it! I pulled really hard and I didn’t so much as a stitch ripping. It did stretch a little bit but it soon went back to it’s original size. Magnificent stuff.
The case measures 197mm x 122mm x 58mm, you’ll be able to fit a fair amount of cables and accessories inside. For the review I gathered up a few bits of tech to see how much I could fit inside.
I managed to fit in:
1 x Portable Charger
1 x Apple Pencil
1 x SanDisk Extreme SSD
1 x AirPods
1 x Android Smartphone
You can fit a fair amount inside the case, much more than I expected to be honest. The internal pockets are well thought out. The pocket on the left hand side, at the back has some extra padding which is really soft. This pocket would be perfect for a small tablet, as it offers a bit more protection than the other pockets.
In front of that you have a small netting style pocket, ideal for a small SSD and some AirPods, as pictured above. The right hand pocket is a good size and is ideal for storing cables, but for the review I used an old Android device.
Included in the case are 4 branded cable tidies, which is quite frankly such a good addition. I’ve mentioned a few times on my reviews that I’d love brands to include branded cable tidies with their products instead of the single use plastic alternative. And, Syncwire have done exactly that.
You also get a small metal carabiner for hanging the case on externally on your backpack. I wouldn’t make use of this particular feature but I can see why it would be useful. It’s ideal for content creators whilst out and about filming or taking photos. Hang the Syncwire gadget bag on the outside of a backpack for instant access to spare memory cards or battery packs.
Price and Where To Buy?
It’s available to buy from Amazon for $17.99 / £13.99. Which at first seemed a little expensive but, as I mentioned it’s great value for money. The affiliate links below will take you to the product page for more information and allow you to buy it from Amazon.
Syncwire Gadget Case Verdict and Summary
This case makes the perfect gift! Give it to the tech lovers in your life and I can say with a great degree of certainty that they’ll love it. I certainly do. So what do I give this out of 10?
It simply had to be the perfect 10. For the price, I can pretty much guarantee you won’t find anything better. I feel confident that anything I stored in the Syncwire travel case gadget bag would not get damaged when travelling.
