Here are some of the essential travel accessories one should have to not all only look suave but also provide sufficient functionality.

When it comes to travelling, there are always a few key essentials to have with you at all times in case of an emergency. Some of those essentials would be your passport, your smartphone (because who can live without one these days) and the list goes on and on.

The travel essentials for the modern man are forever changing, just like fashion trends. However, we believe these are five travel accessories you should have with you to make for a safer, fashion-savvy and overall, more comfortable trip.


Riut Anti-theft bagWhat started out as a simple redesign of a traditional backpack has since made waves through a Kickstarter campaign from Sarah Giblin. The idea behind the Riut Anti-theft bag is simple: the backwards backpack hides the zippers and pockets from prying fingers by moving them to the back of the bag.

A simple, yet ingenious idea that has since garnered significant media interest as well as awarding Giblin the Golden A’Design Award 2015. This is one backpack you will want to have with you whenever you are travelling and are worried about pickpockets.


Montblanc e-TagHave you always hated having your keys, wallets or even luggage’s misplaced when you needed it most? Fret not as Montblanc has come up with a new piece of technology that will ensure misplacing your belongings will never happen again.

Louis Vuitton Evidence sunglassesBe sure to safeguard your eyes with the Louis Vuitton Evidence sunglasses with 100% UV protection from the glares of the sun. Why risk having them scorched when you can protect them while looking trendy and dashing at the same time?

The bridge and tips of the sunglasses are fitted with metallic inlays to provide superior comfort and wearability without being uncomfortable.
