You already know about Timbuk2 because of their excellent bags, many of which we’ve reviewed or mentioned here, but did you know that they also make rolling luggage?

Let’s say that you go to a foreign country, and you’ll need data. What do you do? You could find a cell provider and buy a local SIM, but that takes time and requires registering with your passport. At best, you’ll get a local SIM with a hard data cap, or you could arrive prepared with a Skyroam Global WiFi…
When AKG says the AKG N60NC Noise Cancelling Headphones deliver, “First class noise cancelling headphones fine-tuned for travelling” they aren’t using hyperbole. No, they are describing their newest on-ear headphones with NC. I used them for a weekend trip to Atlanta and they were nothing short of terrific. They sound great, are comfortable, and the noise cancellation is excellent!
I logged over a third of 2015 in travel, and 2016 is shaping up to be more of the same. International flights are the worst, as I have a terrible time trying to sleep between the engine noise and cabin chatter.

I’ve long been a blade shaver, and I was hooked on Gillette’s Fusion ProGlide line for a long time. Well, I am no longer paying Gillette’s exorbitant price, thanks to Harry’s; my face feels better for it, and so does my wallet.
The Cobra Brief by Booq is my favorite 15” MacBook Pro-toting briefcase for traveling. I’ve used it twice so far on plane trips from Newark to both Chicago and Orlando and it’s been very comfortable to carry with me, stow under the seat in front of me, or in the overhead luggage compartment. The Cobra Brief is available for $295!
One of my issues with many messenger bags and backpacks is that, even before you put anything into them, they weigh a ton. Then, after you stow your gear inside, they feel like you are carrying a bag of bricks. Ouch! Not so with the Moshi Aerio! This bag is featherlight but ready for a day of serious productivity.
In case you haven’t gathered from the many times Dan and I have mentioned it, neither of us will travel without the TripIt app, specifically TripIt Pro. Now TripIt has partnered with LoungeBuddy to bring even more value to their membership.

Corkcicle is a product I stumbled upon from a co-worker that has a ridiculous addition to coffee, and an even crazier need for it to be steaming hot as if their local coffee shop just brewed it. So when the company sent over not one, but TWO of their products for me to review, I was excited. One of…
With Thanksgiving coming around the corning, you’ll probably want a nice sturdy bag to carry on your flight to visit your family if you’re heading out of town for the extended weekend. Why not get yourself the best weekender bag on the market?

Now Plantronics has delivered the Backbeat Pro+ Wireless, Noise Cancelling Headphones with HI-FI USB Adapter.
I first saw LuminAID’s products on Shark Tank. I was impressed by the presentation, the product, and the ways it can be of real use in an emergency.

If I’m not careful, the number of cables and chargers by my bedside table can quickly spin out of control. My power strip gets overstuffed, and the various charging cables start to twine together like some kind of electronic rat king.
