This smart-looking pack is billed as a 48-hour business travel briefcase, and it certainly looks slick.

A convertible briefcase, backpack and messenger bag, the Flypack adapts to your needs in different situations. From the outside, it looks like a fairly standard briefcase, but the devil is in the detail.

In this case, the detail is the exclusive fabric. The Flypack uses Hyperlight performance fabric, which is waterproof, dustproof and slash-proof, as well as easy to clean. Its manufacturers are so confident in its capabilities they offer a lifetime guarantee.

Inside, there are multiple compartments to keep your stuff organized. No more digging around for small items that invariably get lost. As you’d expect, there are separate pockets for electronics, toilets and assorted valuables, so you’ll always be able to find what you’re looking for.

Venque are marketing this bag at business travelers, and it does look smart. With that in mind, it’s probably best for city breaks rather than longer backpacking trips.

The bag is the successor to the Briefpack, the previous bag made by the team at Venque, so you know you will get a well-designed product.

The Flypack will retail for $199 after a Kickstarter campaign smashed its funding target.

Under $100: Lyon, France

Somewhere between Paris, Provence and the border with Switzerland is the charming riverside city of Lyon, a burgeoning culinary capital in a country with one of the world’s best cuisines. Lyon’s reputation as a food destination grew within the past decade, and visitors flock to the less-crazed and friendlier town for a more laid-back approach to French cuisine.

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.
