Things are not always what they appear. Sometimes, a pair of TV speakers do more than emit TV sound. Sometimes, a backpack does more than hold stuff. Sometimes a faucet does more than spew water. Sometimes a camcorder does more than shoot video. This week, we have a bunch of such deceptive gizmos.
If inclement weather or other potentially wet conditions are an issue, this aptly-named DryCASE bag ($80) is made from marine grade waterproof vinyl fabric and its main compartment can be vacuum-sealed to become 100 percent waterproof, even for laptops. You also get weather-resistant outer storage, and an outside zippered mesh pocket to stow your wet gear.
