Here we highlight five travel items madeÂ by creators who took to crowdfunding sites toÂ fill inÂ convenienceÂ gaps in aÂ sea of accessoriesÂ already available out there.Â
The discomforting thought that other people might have better access to your belongings that you is a common problem among travelers with the habit of carrying around a backpackâ€”but the RiutBag aims to change that. With zippers designed toÂ face against the wearer’s back, it is nearly impossible for strangersâ€”and possibly pickpocketsâ€”to access the bag’s contents. Â The waterproof bag also comes with other useful features, such as a compartment to fit a 15-inch laptop and other spaces to store smaller items like aÂ mobile phone and travel tickets, all of which are easily accessible by the wearer. Designed by UK designer Sarah Giblin, the product, priced at US$70, has gained over US$ 175,000 since its launch on Kickstarter on September 11.
