The material prevents credit-card fraud by blocking communication by unauthorized RFID readers. It has a slot for credit cards and a magnetic clip for currency.

Kor’s Hydration Veesel

Hmm, I think this is the prettiest water bottle I’ve ever seen.

The streamlined bottles are totally free of bisphenol-A (BPA), the toxic leach in the ubiquitous polycarbonate bottles, thanks to a specially formulated compound called Eastman Tritan™. Safety first, indeed. But, it’s simply, the best-looking water bottle on the market. We love the crystal clear shell, inspired by the organic beauty of blown glass. The “no-worry cap” swivels open at the hinge with a touch of the button, and a special disk inside the top allows you to slip in a message or image to motivate or amuse you with each gulp. The wide mouth is large enough for ice cubes, while designed to minimize splashing. The integrated handle allows for comfy carrying. Made in North America.

11.36” h x 3.54” w

Kuvert Travel Bags

How cool are these? And they fold flat for storage, which is just perfect.

The world in a bag. Sporty, casual and simple, the new KUVERT travel bags are the perfect companion for shopping, sports, weekends, parenting and travel. The unique look is the result of a ground-breaking use of custom-coated polyester fabric: each bag is cut out of a single piece, folded and welded along the edges. This allows the bags to fold flat for storage, yet the engineered expansion is inrivalled in spaciousness. The zippers run in both directions all the way to the base for easy packing and unpacking, and the carrying strap is removable. Kuvert bags are sturdy, water-proof and lightweight – sure to stand by you during your most exciting adventures.
