Travel Gear: reversible suitcases, charging cables and tidy-ups

Travel in business or adventure mode with convertible suitcases

 

LeTrav Convertible Case

If you want to travel casual but arrive sophisticated, LeTrav’s Convertible Cases, which have two reversible compartments, offer an elegant solution. You can journey with a water-resistant backpack but then unzip it, flip the two sides over, zip it again and pitch up with a smart leather case. So you can choose the side you show, business or adventure. From $359; see letrav.com

NomadKey

As we’re increasingly tethered to our smartphones and tablets, the need to recharge has risen to match. NomadKeys are keyring-sized charging cables that mean you’ll never be stuck for powering up again – trusting there’s access to a USB port, of course. In fact, you’ll find USB slots on TVs, cash registers, music players, never mind desktops and laptops. NomadKeys are ultra flexible, with anti-scratch contacts and there are models to fit every device from Blackberry to Apple to Android. Micro USB version $19.95 from hellonomad.com

SKOOBADLX_WEB

Skooba Design Cable Stable DLX

Cocoon’s Grid-It is like the open sandwich version of this, with its crisscross elasticated straps; but Skooba Designs have the advantage of zipping closed. Both are tidy-ups to wrangle your cables, wires, chargers, USB keys, etc. Mesh pockets are good for smaller loose items like SD cards. $23 from amazon.com or skoobadesign.com
