Every once in a while I slap my forehead and say, "I wish I had thought of that." Such is the case with the SkoobaWrap, a simple, useful product. Skooba Design provided me with a sample to review. You can read the review, but until you get to play with it, you can't really appreciate its usefulness. It's a simple square of material, bright green and soft with Velcro fabric hooks on the corners inside, and basic black outside with loop fabric for the hooks to attach. That is the real genius in its design. By simply folding it to conform to the object being carried and pressing down the Velcro hooks in the corner, you can protect your gadget from the incidental jolts of travel.
It comes in three sizes, small (12", $12.95 USD), medium (16", $14.95), and large (22", $17.95). It is perfect to protect cameras, GPSs, DVD players and the other gadgets that road warriors carry. The 12" warp is just the right size for an MP3 player, small camera, or GPS. I used the medium size to cover an Acer Netbook. The picture above shows the medium as a wrap for a SLR camera. The only limit to the usefulness of these wraps is your imagination. You can look at their web site for more ideas. (Photo credit: Skooba Design's web site)
