Joggers and frequent travelers will find this Velcro-strapping Spi-Belt to be a helpful addition to their workout regime. It is a water-resistant belt that at first looks a bit strange, but later proves to be highly resourceful.

DryCase for smartphones

This DryCASE smartphone case is actually a sealed pouch that keeps your device completely free from the elements.

Incase EO Hardshell Roller

Not your typical rollaboard, the black and grey Incase EO Hardshell Roller carry-on bag turns heads. Could it be the neon yellow wheels? Or maybe the hardshell surface that opens to store a laptop as large as 17 inches?

Ballistic Explorer case for iPhone 6

The sinking feeling that comes when you drop your phone can be avoided with a heavy-duty case. The Ballistic Explorer case for iPhone 6 does just that. In fact, the manufacturer has drop tested the phone from eight feet high. The rubbery exterior shields the frame and face of the phone meaning it is safe from shattering the front or damaging the internal part of the phone.

Urban Junket

The next time you recycle your plastic bottles, think that this may not be the last time you see the. Urban Junket repurposes them into crafty hand bags, tote bags, and tablet cases. Turning bottles into fashionable bags is what the company is doing. For example, five plastic bottles were used to make the colorful tote bag I reviewed.

Go Travel Slimline Power Bank

The Go Travel Slim Power Bank has something special about it though since it is as small and thin as a credit card. That’s my biggest beef when taking mobile chargers places since they can be a bit bulky, but this is thin enough to fit into your pocket without it being too obtrusive. It can even fit into someone’s wallet.

Fisher Backpacker Space Pen

The Backpacker Space Pen was designed for those that spend time outdoors or in extreme temperatures, but it works just as well for business travelers.

A good pair of Chelsea boots deserves a home in every gentleman’s wardrobe, and I certainly give mine a decent workout. Hitting the pavement constantly wears down the soles regularly, which can make them uneven and uncomfortable to wear.

A bit of a germaphobe myself, I was intrigued to learn about the Phone Soap machine. It is certainly clunky looking and a bit large (perhaps to fit a multitude of phone types), but it is a no-brainer to set up on a countertop and keep discreetly out of the way. It is designed to kill germs on the surface of your phone through infrared light.

The Petzl Tikkina Headlamp is the perfect gift for a frequent traveler. The way it works is that it wraps around your forehead as a headband and illuminates the area that you are facing, which makes it great for outdoorsmen (perhaps its original intention), but also perfect for road warriors like me (and my associates).

The Brunton Resync 3000 is a pocket-sized charger that is great for those on the go and often away from the convenience of a power outlet. It charges devices via a USB port plus has a small solar Panel that can be used for recharging if the charge is already drained. That can really come in handy for a quick phone call.

The Oregami collection of duffel bags are great for hefty packers that want a convenient and organized space to keep their belongings when on the road. Oregami’s duffels come in three sizes: small, medium and large. The medium and large sizes are best used as checked luggage.

The Ecoxgear Ecopebble Bluetooth speaker operates in tandem with any Bluetooth-compatible device including a smart phone or tablet. It is designed to be used outdoors because of its all-purpose, weather-resistant design.


These Tifosi Pro Launch sunglasses are pretty cool, especially since they come in my favorite Leopard print pattern. They are lightweight, which makes them perfect for wearing in a variety of weather conditions.


The impressive Solo Executive Collection Bradford Briefcase bag seemingly does it all. It brings a classic sense of style, a bit retro Mad Men-esque and a bit modern times, while holding a ton of stuff from paperwork to a laptop. It is the kind of briefcase that travelers of any age will enjoy


The ExOfficio convertible men’s jacket fits the bill perfectly because it is so versatile. In cold weather, the jacket provides ample insulation from the chill, but in warmer climates, the sleeves can be unzipped to create a vest.

In darker settings, the face can be illuminated to make it easy to tell the time. Of course, its large face makes it easy to see as well, and is in line with the latest trend of larger faces on men’s watches.
