I remember an aunt once showing me a new gadget she bought that would allow her to always be able to hang her handbag from a table when she went out to lunch. It was a pretty little metal hook combination that (in theory) hung from the table’s edge, letting her hang her purse from…

Here’s the thing about skorts: They’re the perfect blend of skirt and short that allow you to go about your big, crazy adventures. Skirts may be good for some things, but unless you’re into exhibitionism, they’re not optimal gear for many sports. So, add shorts, and you’re good. And over the years, the construction of…

Hard-sided luggage certainly can protect your valuables from getting smashed, but when it comes to carrying your bag around, you pretty much have to rely on the hard-sided case’s wheels. There may be some that convert to backpacks, but imagine shouldering the load from airport to city, including at least 10 city blocks. Do you…

Travel skirts have come a long way. They used to be either short and skin-tight or long and granny style, and while either can work fine (depending on where you are)—they are sometimes limiting.

When you think of insect-repellant clothing, do you think of safari-looking pants, a long-sleeved button-down shirt, and hat with a back flap and perhaps netting? While that can be incredibly effective at keeping the biting bugs away, you don’t have to say sayonara to style when repelling irritating critters. ExOfficio’s BugsAway line includes Insect Shield,…
