15 Top Women’s Travel Accessories to Pack in 2017
Travel usually means one thing for most of us ladies: free-time, fun, adventure. Well, that’s more than one thing and on top of that, we at most times have got to take some work along.
Also, we’ll likely want to ask for directions, check back on those we leave behind, and those that we are about to meet. Shoot photos for souvenirs. Go shopping. Check out our new look (or maintain a fabulous look). Capture those special moments on film. Budget and keep track of expenses. Stay in touch with new found activity, and just get things done.
As such, do you feel you need innovation, multitasking, full connectivity, utility, power, convenience, and all of that wrapped up in one stylish and portable travel package? Here are some travel accessories you might want to take along in the next twelve months or so. Some of them are out already and some you won’t have to wait too long to add to your favourites.
1. GoPro Hero 4 Black Action Camera
GoPro‘s cameras are the top of the game action snappers and therefore top of our travel accessories for women list. One of those will help you log those special moments in high definition film, snap your action in slo-mo, watch it on the onboard LCD (GoPro Hero 4 Silver), and store those sweet memories until you can get home and play it all back on HDTV.
The Hero 4 Black is the latest, lightest, most rugged, and, still, the most adorable unit you can get your hands on. It features ultra high definition video recording (4K resolution), shoots 1080 pixels (Full HD) video at 120frames per second (fps) and 720 pixels (HD) video at 240fps. Also, you can catch the action in a slo-mo mode in a ¼ speed at 1080p and 1/8 speed at 720p. You can take it with you to the shower, or diving since it is waterproof up to 40 meters, too.
While the little, powerful camera’s battery life will probably be done within 2 hours (with Wi-Fi enabled), you can do a lot in that time. Plus we just mentioned some smart ways to charge up your electronic peripherals while on the go.
2. Pacsafe UK Citysafe CS100 Anti-theft Bags
Afraid a thug may make away with your gear?
Worry no more, second on our travel accessories for women listif the Pacsafe handbag. For $90 (ca. £60.27), Pacsafe UK is offering these classy, flexible, lightweight and practical travel accessories for women for your safe travel needs.
In 2016, one of Pacsafe handbags could be among the essential accessories for women you’ll need. The handbag features flexible, stainless steel and adjustable straps that are well covered and invisible to the eye. The bags also feature full-length guards to protect you from a slash-and-run theft scenario. Even cooler is the special material Pacsafe claims to embed in handbags to guard against fraudsters using RFID scanners to read sensitive data from unsuspecting women’s bags.
Pacsafe claims it can block almost all transmissions in the 10MHz-3GHz range. This is about the radio frequency range used in credit cards and smart cards.
The CS100 also features smart hooks that detach, and you can then affix the bag to your fixture. You can also choose from a number of anti-theft bags from Pacsafe. From larger luggage to smaller handbags you can carry around throughout the day, it is up to you to make that choice of bag.
