If you are looking for a tough daypack, the Quiver X might be for you.
Whether you are heading off on a hike or tackling the daily commute, this great-looking bag has something for everyone. Commuters will love the auto-lock zip mechanism which promises to keep pickpockets out, while active types will love the water-resistant, dust-resistant fabric that will keep your stuff safe from the elements.
Inside there is a privacy compartment where you can keep the most precious objects you’re carrying, like your passport, which won’t be immediately obvious to anyone that does make it inside your bag. There are also multiple internal pockets designed to contain toiletries, clothes and dirty laundry, so you won’t get all of your stuff dirty after a gym session.
You can even put your phone into the touch-sensitive pocket and navigate your device without taking it out of the bag. It’s great for when your hands are wet or dirty, and the manufacturers claim it’s even safe for use in the shower.
Another boon that distinguishes the Quiver X from the competition is a special smell-proof technology that keeps your bag fresh even after a long time on the road. Grab a Quiver X for $187 now that the Kickstarter campaign has concluded successfully.

While it’s unlikely you’d go all the way to Lisbon, Portugal, for just one dish, there’s certainly one bite you must have while you’re there: the egg tart. Pastel de nata (cream pastry) is a national obsession that has become a bucket-list bite for nearly every traveler to the country’s seaside capital. Fortunately for tourists, the city’s most iconic landmark, Belém Tower, is located just across the street and down the shoreline from the city’s undisputed powerhouse of pastel, Pastéis de Bélem. Unfortunately for visitors, the line leading to Pastéis de Bélem’s bakery counter may be the longest line found anywhere in the city, as salivating hordes wait their turn to taste the original, secret recipe invented by the monks of the nearby Jerónimos Monastery in Santa Maria de Bélem, itself an architecture masterpiece that places it at the top of any Lisbon must-list.
Dining is an art, and now that applies to both on the ground and at 35,000 feet thanks to Hainan Airlines’ “Hai Chef” Inflight Artistic Chinese cuisine series, a collaboration with Dong Zhenxiang, a Chinese culinary master also known as Dadong.
