Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker Packs a Punch

Just the fact that I am traveling does not mean that I must always listen to music via headphones. Sometimes it’s nice to create a little ambiance. So, what combines sound quality, travel-ready size and a decent price?

Mountainsmith Borealis AT Recycled Camera Backpack – Your Camera Will Thank You

Some scenes deserve to be captured with a better camera than the one in your phone. I don’t mind carrying my DSLR in a backpack, but do not want to rummage through other stuff in order to remove the camera.

Given that, Mountainsmith Borealis might just be the right backpack for this job!

Victorinox Travel Sentry Approved Lock Set Keeps Your Stuff Safe, Kind Of

If TSA wants to see the contents of your luggage, it is going to do just that. Since you cannot avoid it, at least avoid having your lock broken by using a TSA-compatible lock.

Even though this lock will not keep out TSA, it will probably keep out petty thieves. To this, I say “good enough.”

Bucky Luggage 40 Blinks Ultralight Sleep Mask Helps Catch Some Zs

Most sleep masks do not allow me to blink freely. This mask is contoured in order to allow blinking. Why didn’t I think of that?

Edimax BR-6258nL N150 Wireless Travel Router Keeps You Connected

I noticed that some hotels have a perfectly serviceable wired internet connection, but no wireless connectivity. Enter Edimax Wireless Travel Router. Roughly the size of a pack of gum, this device turns a wired connection into a wireless one. It can also create a personal wireless hotspot.

Monster Outlets To Go Powerstrip Makes More Outlets

I hate it when hotels have only 1 available power outlet! I may need to charge my phone, laptop or tablet, as well as the digital camera battery. This mini-powerstrip provides 4 AC power outlets to power all kinds of travel electronics.

Dual Electronics Universal Bluetooth GPS Receiver for Portable Devices Finds The Way

This device, model XGPS150A (there are others), works with Bluetooth-enabled devices. I don’t have this one yet, but I wonder what I could do by pairing it with an iPad. A great in-car or marine GPS and entertainment center?

Calvin Klein Men’s Mario Suede Slip-On Loafer: Style And Comfort

These super-soft loafers are easy to put on and take off without bending down. This makes them idea for travel, especially when getting through airport security. I am on my second pair and I really like these shoes.

I prefer dark blue and gray colors, because they help the shoes look clean longer. I found that the sole of these shoes is very durable, able to withstand a lot of walking.
