A new laptop and backpack combination splits in two depending on what you’re doing that day.

Pack all of your stuff for the weekend in the main compartment, and keep your laptop, charger and notebook in the laptop compartment. When it’s time for your meeting, detach the laptop bag and leave the main pack at home for a more professional look.

Functionality is also boosted by an external USB port in the shoulder strap, which lets you charge your phone, and a hidden security pocket for your cards or transport pass. These are just a couple of the many well-thought out design features, which means the 4Space looks like a solid choice of bag.

That said, the design might be a bit boring for those who want to stand out from the crowd. It’s a basic rectangular shape in a black color with little in the way of detailing, so look elsewhere if you want some fun styling. However, if you are going on business to high-crime locations, a boring-looking bag might be a good thing to have with you.

Look for more information on the Kickstarter page. You will be able to buy one of the bags for $120 when the campaign ends.

Hotel Bonaventure

While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
