An Intuitive Pack for Tech-Savvy Travelers


Already known for its leather-tech travel accessories, This Is Ground has recently introduced its first backpack, Venture, fusing smart technology and old-school functionality into one intuitive design. Features include a GPS tracking device from Tile, an optional Karma WiFi hotspot for staying connected while on the road, and a back that folds down to form a tray for laptops, so you’ll be spared that frantic moment of unpacking at airport security. A microfiber-lined pocket for tablets ensures a spotless, dust-free device upon removal. Made from vegetable-tanned Italian leather, the Venture pack is available in large and small sizes, with the former engineered to fit a 15-inch MacBook. —James Louie
