Eagle Creek Travel Bug

Small, compact, safe, easy to spot: that’s the trend we’re looking at for porting our cool gadgets around the world.

Eagle Creek, makers of smartly designed travel luggage and accessories has a couple of great products that caught my eye recently: the Travel Bug Mini Backpack and eTools Organizer.

The weather-proof Travel Bug comes in three colour schemes and is packed with great features. If you’re concerned about protecting your identity when hitting the road (and who isn’t?!), this bag has an RFID security pocket for stowing your passport, credit and identity cards, blocking RFID readers up to a frequency range of 30 MHz to 3 GHz.

It weighs a mere 11 ounces (.31 kg) before you pack it with digital tablet, smart phone, pen, writing journal, umbrella, wallet, compact camera and paperwork. It fits a LOT for its small size.

We like the zipper toggles that can be tucked into one another as well as through the two dedicated metal hole fasteners contained at the top of both compartments. I was robbed on a European train years back and can’t help but think that a system like this may have prevented an awful lot of grief that night in Lisbon!

A handy side compartment will fit a small water bottle or JOBY tripod. The carry strap and back of the Travel Bug both include breathable mesh fabric for warmer treks.

A carry loop on top, zipped mesh inner pocket and internal key fob clip are handy touches.

This is a great little travel companion that will keep your gear in place and easy to find, including the padded smart phone pocket (it fits the iPhone 6 with case as shown in the above photo).

It has a small carry handle on top and can be easily packed into luggage (in between your clothes for extra protection) or into a carry-on or backpack.

If you’re considering the Travel Bug, it fits right inside the tablet sleeve or within the main compartment if that space is already taken up by your iPad.
