Silent Revolution: urban bags for the digital age


These thoroughly modern bags by Silent Revolution are a refreshing change from the giant, shapeless hobo-type bags that everyone's carrying these days (from the Olsen Twins to Wall Street executives). Let's face it, those loose, formless bags with cavernous interiors just aren't meant for carrying gadgets which are hard with sharp edges (and yet so fragile), and which we need within easy reach. And we've all witnessed women dumping the entire contents of their gargantuan handbags onto a tabletop or floor (yuck) in order to find their ringing cell phone (that wasn't me, I swear).


Made in Los Angeles (and sweatshop-free), Silent Revolution bags combine functional design to accommodate the devices we carry with "urban streetwear" styling. But the look is minimalist and sharp, so wouldn't look out of place at the office (unless you work in a terribly conservative place). Their handbags and laptop bags, made of vinyl or nylon and priced from $114 to $298, have padded pockets for iPods and palm devices, and headphone ports.


I rather like their smaller bags for times when I want to travel light. The Ammo and Hydro bags ($64 and $68) can be worn at the hip, diagonally around your back, or just over your shoulder. I love the black Ammo with green polka dots (pictured at the very top, left), which is roomier than it appears -- it has four interior pockets with velcro closures (one is padded for your most fragile device). It fits my Blackberry, my iPod, a small wallet, keys, pack of tissues, and a lipstick (could fit more, but I like it slim).


Coming soon -- their clothing line. I like this skirt, so I'm looking forward to seeing what else they come up with.
