KIZIK handsfree shoes
Shoes are considered EDC, right? You “carry” them with you every day on your feet! And what’s better than a cool looking shoe? A cool looking shoe that you can take on and off without using your hands, that’s what. KIZIK men’s and women’s shoes are truly hands-free – you just pop ‘em on and pop ‘em off. There are no special laces or anything else to deal with. They are comfortable and fit like regular shoes, but they have a specially designed heel that allows you to slide your foot into and out of the shoe effortlessly. Check out Howard’s KIZIK Hands Free New York Shoe review for all the details and then head over to KIZIK.com to buy a pair. They even have dress shoes now.

That’s 4 chargers, 4 AC adapters, and assorted cables. UGH! The Satechi 75W Dual Type-C PD Travel Charger saves a ton of space in my bag which makes my back happy!

Kobo Libra H20 eReader
I love reading eBooks and normally do it on my smartphone. But if you like to relax with a book in the sunny outdoors, it can be almost impossible to read the screen. That’s why when we go on vacation, I always pack a Kobo eReader. They have great battery life, easy to read screen, and they help you disconnect and focus on the book you’re reading instead of notifications and other apps on your phone or tablet.
Kobo’s Libra H20 has a comfortable to hold and use with easy-to-use page-turn buttons and an ergonomic design that allows you to turn it to read in landscape orientation. With ComfortLight PRO and full waterproofing, you can read it in the night and at the beach without any worries.
The Kobo’s Libra H20 is $199.99 directly from Kobo.
