For the society that travels a lot, This is Ground introduces its Voyager bags. It may look like just a bag, but this is a piece of technology people can carry around that has Wi-Fi capabilities.
A lot of people have struggled looking for the right bag to bring during travels. Some travelers may prefer bags with wheels for their heavy luggage. Sports-minded people may prefer duffel bags, and students prefer their back packs to keep their things organized. But for a simple traveler, they do not prefer those things.
Bearing this in mind, downtown Los Angeles-based company This is Ground has designed a bag that suits a lot of travelers with a touch of technology that comes along with it. The Voyager, stylish like a briefcase, roomy like a duffel bag, and like a nerdy backpack that keep things organized because of its pockets. Even better, it comes with a Wi-Fi device from Karma Go that makes it fundamentally a Wi-Fi hot spot.
As for specifications, the bag is 16.5 inches long and one foot tall with two separate zippered sectors. The main compartment of the bag can fit a lot of stuff like a weekend's worth of clothing plus a pair or two of shoes in the bag. Located at the side pockets of the bag is the Karma Go Wi-Fi device and its housing, along with a partition for a smartphone and a power bank, plus a set of cords used for charging gadgetries and essentially other small stuff that people can put in there.
The Voyager bag is made up of high-quality leather. It also has a shoulder strap available for folks to be able to carry it like a shoulder bag. Without the strap, it can be carried like a briefcase. The bag comes in many colors like Charcoal, Grey, French, Cognac, Navy and Bomber.
As mentioned earlier, the bag's Wi-Fi connections are powered by a pay-as-you-go network called Karma, and the network has 400 U.S. cities covered. At first look, the Wi-Fi dongle may arrive quite like a gimmick, but a built-in power bank with an array of cords may seem quite a deal.
The Voyager will be going on sale on Nov. 2 at a price of $725 without the Wi-Fi device, and a $925 price tag with the device. Though slightly expensive, Voyager is sure to get plenty of salutations and might just become a traveler's new favorite bag.
