Lander Carry System: Everything You Need for Anywhere You Might Go

I reviewed the Lander TIMP 20 a while back, and it was one of the best I’ve ever used; sleek, water-resistant, incredibly light, and durable! Although Lander makes other accessories, I can verify that their backpack game is strong; that’s why I am excited about the new Lander Carry System, which is almost fully funded on Kickstarter.


MyCharge AdventureUltra Keeps Gear Going on the Go

One of the things I love about my new MacBook Pro is the fact that it uses a USB-C charging port. That means I can now charge my laptop on the go along with my iPhone and Table. The $129.99 myCharge AdventureUltra makes that possible, but it goes one step further by adding a built-in AC power port.


TripIt Is Now Your Airport Sidekick

TripIt has been my go-to app for travel, hands down. I track all of my flights instantly thanks to the Pro features, but when I’m in the airport, I’ve always thought the app could be more useful. Luckily the company thought this as well, and they’ve released an update that its users will enjoy.

The BRAVEN BRV-BLADE Bluetooth Speaker Lets Your Music Slice Through the Quiet

I recently reviewed the BRAVEN Stryde 360 Bluetooth Speaker. (Read the review.) It is under $100, is waterproof, and delivers good sound regardless of where you go. If, however, you want big sound that gets even bigger thanks to “BRAVEN Boost,” you will want to check out the BRAVEN BRV-BLADE. It looks serious and delivers sound in keeping with appearances.


AKG N60NC Wireless Cut the Cord but Not the Corners

I’ve long been a fan of AKG’s headphones. I like their aesthetics. I like their build. Most importantly, I like the tuning that AKG brings to their music products. It simply sounds good to my ears. That’s why I was excited to check out the new AKG N60NC Wireless. I’ve reviewed the N60NC but now… they’ve cut the cord!


Blue Satellite Wireless Headphones with ANC Are out of This World

Some time ago, I brought word that Blue Microphones was deepening their headphone bench with the introduction of their first pair of wireless headphones. The Blue Satellite Wireless headphones build upon what is, in a short time, a stellar reputation. The new Satellite Wireless Headphones with ANC and an onboard Amp are, in a word, “Impressive.”


EBag’s Carry-on Bag Doesn’t Need Fancy Gadgets to Be Useful

There’s something to be said about good carry-on luggage.

The Solo Rival Backpack: There’s a Place for Everything

The tagline for the Solo Rival Backpack should be “There’s a place for everything,” because that’s exactly how I felt when I took it on a trip recently. Though plain on the outside, the inside of this bag offers a slew of organizational features waiting to be utilized by the tech-enthusiast traveler. At $79.99, the Solo Rival offers serious value.

BuddyPhones fit the bill because they are volume limiting, durable, and comfortable. They also come with fun stickers so your kids can personalize them to their liking. BuddyPhones retail for $24.99.


Grand Trunk Medium Compression Pack Cube Is Great for Your Next Getaway

At $79.99 Grand Trunk’s medium Compression Pack Cube might appear a bit too pricey. There are, after all, much less expensive travel cubes on the market. After using the review sample I received on a few trips, though, I’m a huge fan. It is a great way to pack your items before the trip and keep clean and soiled garments…


QuietOn Active Noise Cancelling Earplugs: Silence Found?

My husband snores. not all the time but sometimes, and if I don’t fall asleep before he does, his snoring can keep me awake. Kev’s had a sleep test (there’s no sleep apnea), and he’s tried various anti-snore devices to no avail. I’ve tried earplugs, but they block everything (like alarms); it’s better to use QuietOn Active Noise Cancelling Earplugs.
