Yeap, we’ve all been there. But rest assured, here are a few tech gadgets 1) that our Shoppers are personally buying, 2) that we’re personally recommending as well! Frequent fliers and young travelers alike, these gadgets might come in handy for you:
Packing your DSLR and lenses along with you can be a hassle when you’re away for a quick getaway but still want to have the liberty to take great photographs. So clip on the Olloclip over your iPhone camera and snap away beautiful photos as and when you feel like!

Just about the coolest wearable you can sport this year, Here Active Listening is basically two wireless buds you can use via a smartphone app to personalise your listening experience, whether it’s adjusting the volume, EQ, or effects of the world around you. This award-winning product is both comfortable and functional, and is powered by Doppler Labs’ patented TruEQ technology which disguises its complex technicality within a simple and compact true-wireless form.

What’s the easiest way to carry all your essentials with you? Through a sleek leather carryall of course. And by that, we mean This Is Ground’s ultra stylish customisable carryall that has compartments to store your tablet, phone, pens, stylus, glasses, cards, cash, notebook, small items, and cords. Pop this into your backpack and you won’t have to dig it out just to find your passport or mobile phone when necessary.

Speaking of backpacks, this nifty squeeze laptop backpack from Booq Bags is well-padded with enough storage to keep a MacBook or PC laptop up to 15.4 inches. Another reason why it’s on our travel essentials list? It’s made from durable water-repelling ballistic nylon and boasts a slim shape that is modern and not overly bulky. Looks can be deceiving with this seemingly small backpack – you can bring along your MacBook, iPad and accessories with you as you travel.
