I receive dozens of reviews of different travel items and press releases on new events. Seldom do any of these make my heart go pitter-patter, but yesterday, the sound alarm went off in my heart.
Here are 2 travel items that I would find indispensable. When you do geek travel, there are lots of cords, equipment, and chargers that need to go along. This would be a perfect solution. Anyone coming my way, I will reimburse you to bring me one.
Quoting the website “The Grid-It organization system is a unique weave of rubberized elastic bands made specifically to hold personal objects firmly in place. Designed to provide endless configurations of digital devices and personal effects. Slim design and conveniently sized for your current laptop bag or travel case, lets you easily find what you need. Features rear zippered pocket for additional storage.” Order it here.
With the airlines playing nasty regarding weight limitations, this little tool is a must have to save you horrifying surprises at the airport. Again, quoting from the website “This tiny but powerful device allows you to weigh your luggage on the go; while you’re away on a trip or just preparing to leave for one. The xScale® PRO is a hand held auto-locking digital scale that can weigh up to 110 Lbs (50 Kg)…the xScale® PRO has a finely tuned circuit board that auto-locks the weight of the luggage both quickly and accurately, even if your hands are not stable when holding up your luggage. With the high-contrast reversed LCD screen, the weight is easily read even in dimly lit hotel rooms. One of its more advanced features is an overweight indicator; the LCD screen will change to red when the luggage exceeds the weight limit. The weight limit can be set from 20 to 50 lbs in 10 lb increments.” If this floats your boat, order it here. This is something I would like to have around for guests as well as for our own use. Again, if you are coming my way, I would love one.
