Hitting the road for a quick one night trip to STL, testing out the Pacsafe Metrosafe 350, a smallish daypack with all the usual Pacsafe security features; it’ll be featured in a review later this week or early next week.  This trip will also give me a chance to use my BlackBerry Tour as a modem with my Asus netbook, something I haven’t done since I originally tested it (& related software) a couple of weeks ago.

In the meantime, in case you’ve ignored the news about the new credit card law, here are a couple of articles that are worthy of a quick read:

5 ways the new credit card law will affect travelers – from the Consumer Traveler blog.  Of particular note are the changes to transaction fees and the likelihood that rewards cards won’t be quite as lucrative in the future.  Killjoys!!

A more general audience rundown of the law’s impact on consumers from MSN Money:  What the new credit card law means for you

Finally, and completely unrelated:  if you’ve never checked it out, FatWallet‘s travel section includes some very good summaries on getting the best deal for your travel dollar.  Check this one:  FAQ:  How to find the best airfare deals

Have a great day!

    Kind of Off-topic — but I bought the PacSafe CarrySafe 300 strap last year. I used it daily for 40 days — touring Asia with a small bag for camera and books. It was great. I used it a few months ago on my computer case because it was more comfortable. The metal bracket broke on the strap as I was walking on the plane (I was able to slow the fall so no damage was done). The steel reinforced strap was fine — but apparently they spent all their R&D dollars in reinforcing that strap because the metal clip broke — not in a hinge or where you world expect, but in the middle of the metal bracket. I called eBags — they will replace it — hopefully the next one will be of higher quality. Not very impressive quality.

    Update: ebags passed me off to pacsafe — I mailed it in with the receipt and they replaced it within 4 weeks I believe. Same design – we’ll see how this one holds up.

    Hope it works out for you… I’ve had no issues with the MS 350.
