Pacsafe Slashproof Bags

Pacsafe slashproof bags are a must-have for travelers.  Pacsafe makes high-quality slashproof bags that will last you for years to come.

All PacSafe travel gear is made with zipper pullers which attach to security hooks, slashproof straps, and eXomesh body panels. Pacsafe products contain RFID blocking pockets to protect your credit cards and passports from identity theft. Each product contains a large tag explaining all slashrpoof features.

We recently reviewed the following and highly recommend them:

Venturesafe 150 Cross Body – This pack is especially great for adventure travelers and guys looking for a comfortable slimline slashproof bag.

Slingsafe 300 GII Backpack – The Slingsafe 300 GII is water repellant. It is spacious enough to hold an iPad or 13: laptop. It also contains an umbrella side pocket and water bottle pocket.

Slingsafe 200 GII Shoulder Bag – This shoulder bag is a sleek purse which is just large enough to carry everything women need for travel. It is spacious yet compact. It offers sophisticated protection without bulk.

Citysafe 350 GII Backpack – We give this backpack our “Best Rated Seal of Approval”! It truly is the “best of the best”. We liked that it was a smaller version of the Slingsafe 300 with all the same features yet in miniature. We especially liked the shoulder straps; they are thin and sturdy, making for a winning combination for travel. This backpack is built especially for women. You’ll love it.

Citysafe 350 can carry at 13″ laptop, iPad, and more.

Why buy bread at the store when you can easily make your own?

We asked many men and women this question.  The number one answer:

“I don’t make bread because it’s too messy. ”

We have a solution for you: Roul’Pat.  Roul’Pat is a genuinely non-stick countertop workstation mat.  It is perfect for preparing bread or cookie dough as well as working with sugar art, chocolate, and candy-making projects.

We tested the large size mat.  We highly recommend it.  The more space, the better, when baking.   We used Hodgson Mill’s Honey Whole Weat Bread Mix.  The bread was delicious.  But the best part?  It was easy to make!

In fact, you can even use this great mat for other sticky projects, such as working with glue.

This mat is made in France.  It is high-quality and will last for years to come.

All-Weather Birder's Journal

For birders and field journalists, writing in the rain has always been a challenge – until now.  National Geographic carries an all All-Weather Birder’s Journal.  It’s made of rain-resistant paper and comes in a convenient carrying case.

We tested it and found that when rain lands on the pages, it beads up.  You can easily brush it off.  But if you leave it there, the paper is thick enough to retain its original composition and will not turn into a wet paper rag.

The journal works best with a pencil, though a special pen is also available.

Rating: 3 stars!  Good!
