With a raft of features suited to multiple uses and a modular design, the Agile backpack is great for our hectic lives.

The team at Agile have designed luggage for more than 25 years, and the experience shows in this latest effort. It can be used as hand luggage on business trips, a daypack for backpackers or the perfect bag for photographers out shooting.

It’s made from waterproof TPU material, so you know your stuff is safe from the elements. The bottom of the bag uses 1200D nylon for incredible durability, and the back features EVA molded padding for comfort.

A small top pocket is padded with microfiber to protect fragile items, and the whole bag has YKK lockable zippers for security. There are back straps as well as side and top carrying handles for versatility, and a diagonal outside pocket for easy access to documents and other items.

In short, the backpack is built to last with great versatility and a huge number of useful pockets. Internal mesh organizers keep your stuff separated and there is a separate section for electronics such as a 15-inch laptop and a tablet.

The Agile Modular backpack will retail for $299 following a successful Kickstarter campaign.

The day starts at 8 a.m. with a pickup at your hotel in Buenos Aires to travel about an hour and a half into the countryside via private vehicle. Your guide will meet you in San Antonio de Areco, a historic gaucho town, where you will learn about the art of silver and metal-working and walk the sleepy colonial streets.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.

The Idiotarod

Not to be confused with the similarly named event featuring our four-legged friends, the Idiotarod features humans doing what we do best — acting like idiots in public. The grueling team event features groups of five “idiots” showcasing their combined nerve and stupidity by barreling through city streets while piled on top of shopping carts. Sound fun? That’s because it kind of is.
