Giveaway: WIN One of These Three Awesome Travel Essentials!

Travelon Giveaway

*UPDATE* The giveaway has ended but feel free to read on about the products reviews below.

It’s been a while since we’ve had a giveaway on the blog. To make up for it, we’re giving away not one… not two …but THREE awesome travel bags, courtesy of Travelon.

We love all the products at Travelon, so hand-selecting three products to giveaway was no easy task. In the end, we decided on the following unique but practical accessories that we think would suit just about any traveler. We know we look forward to using all of these bags on our own future trips!

What You Could Win:

#1: Anti-Theft React Computer/ Messenger Bag

 Anti-Theft React Computer and Messenger Bag Travelon

It’s kind of obvious that we have to travel with our laptops. But not only do we take them from place-to-place, we also often take our laptops with us into the city in search of a trendy café or impromptu office. Since so much of our lives depend on our computers, it’s really important to us to have a laptop bag we can trust. Enter the Anti-Theft React Bag.

This messenger bag is ideal for business travelers, digital nomads, or basically anyone who travels with their laptop. The material and shoulder strap are slash-proof, and the bag contains locking compartments. Add to that the RFID blocking card and passport slots, and there’s no way anyone is getting your valued information (unless you let them take off with the whole bag, of course).

In addition to the anti-theft measures, we love that there are numerous padded compartments and pockets for organization, including a Checkpoint-friendly rear laptop compartment.

The only criticism we have for the bag is that we don’t love the material. Typically we prefer a slightly more stylish leather or canvas; however, this material is specifically designed to be slash-proof, an important consideration to keep in mind.


# 2: The Convertible Cross-Body Duffel

The Convertible Cross-Body Duffel Travelon


I’m pretty sure this bag was made specifically with me in mind. Two bags in one, the Convertible Cross-Body Duffel can be compressed to serve as a convenient cross-body bag, or be expanded to provide a good-sized duffle bag when needed. This bag is perfect if you like to save your entire souvenir shopping for the end of your trip and need a place to pack your newfound belongings. We also like the idea of using the duffel for things like camping or a picnic as you can compress the bag at the end of the trip once your supplies have all been used up.

The Convertible Cross-Body Duffel is made with lightweight, stain and water resistant material. The company does say that the material is rip-stop, but we would be a bit hesitant to check the bag when flying or to store anything too heavy inside of the lightweight material.

Some additional features that we love are the bag’s adjustable/removable padded shoulder strap and the variety of fun colors the bag comes in.

Basically, if you’re like us and continually accumulate ‘stuff’ while you travel, this is the bag for you.


# 3: Safe ID Double-Zip Clutch Wallet

 Safe ID Double-Zip Clutch Wallet Travelon

Sorry boys. This bag is for the ladies, but I just couldn’t help but include this practical and cute clutch in the giveaway! The main detail that differentiates this wallet from the rest is that it’s not only versatile with numerous compartments and slots, but it also contains RFID blocking to protect from electronic pickpockets. I don’t think I’ve ever really thought about people electronically stealing my information before, but it doesn’t hurt to protect yourself from it just in case.

The clutch also features removable wrist and shoulder straps so you can wear it just about anyway that you like. It’s also compact enough to throw into your purse.

  3. DIFFICULT DECISION……..Messenger bag for when I take the laptop…… Maybe will give to hubby for Christmas. I got a Travel on RFID wallet and bag and am currently using it on my FL trip to take care of my sister who is having cancer surgery in a few days. Enjoy reading about your travels. Hope to get to Norway and hopefully figure out where my great-grandfather emigrated from to the US.

  4. The messenger bag would make a great gift, but I would be really tempted to keep it for myself :-p Best of luck in the contest and your travels to Florida. We wish your sister a speedy recovery.
