Winter is almost here. Well, not for us in California as practically we don’t know what winter is 🙂 But in case you know someone who does, or you will be going away for holidays, we’ve got at Naluda a list of good tech-related gifts and travel essentials that you can’t miss.


The Hydaway Bottle – A Collapsible  Pocket Size Bottle Fit for Any Adventure

You’re busy, you’re thirsty, and you’re always on the move. You need a reusable water bottle that’s portable, easy to use, and won’t hold you back wherever you go.  The Hydaway bottle is the next generation in portable hydration. Hydaway is a handy alternative to disposable plastic water bottles – it folds down easily to fit in almost any pocket! The ultimate travel and hiking companion, when expanded, the 21 oz. Hydaway will quench your thirst during airport layovers, or the final pitch to the summit.  This larger size bottle fits in most vehicle cup holders and backpack water bottle pockets.  The 12 oz.  bottle is perfect for the quick getaway and features a stable base to prevent tips and spills at the playground or the campground.  The innovative, hinged design allows the Hydaway to pack down easily to fit in backpacks, lunch boxes, and picnic baskets.  Expand the bottle full size to quench the biggest thirst. When you’re finished, collapse it flat (just over an inch thick to be exact) and stash it in your pocket, pack, purse… almost anywhere!

Stay Plugged In On The Road

Introducing the SOOT Electropack: The 3-in-1 Transformable, Chargeable Carry-On
SOOT is a cool, innovative way to keep all your electronic devices charged. The SOOT Electropack 2:  The Chargeable Carry-On is a tablet-sized mini messenger. It’s a mid-sized commuter backpack. It’s a full-sized carry-on. And it charges your mobile devices. The greatest perk of the bag comes in the form of a 10,000 mAh battery, which effectively translates to about a week or two of self-sufficient power for any electronic device that can be connected by a USB cable. SOOT is the ideal bag for travelers, backpackers and dingy hostel dwellers alike, some of whom may never have access to a steady power supply for weeks on end. Or maybe you’re just on a long flight and want to make sure all your devices are charged.  The SOOT Electropack, made from premium ballistic nylon and ultra-high grade marine vinyl, comes in three different sizes for different occasions.  The Mini Messenger is a 10-liter pack that is able to connect to two devices — such as a tablet and a phone — which the 24-liter Commuter pack can likewise do. When combined, the 34-liter carry-on can charge up to four devices. The Mini Messenger comes with an integrated protective iPad sleeve, while the Commuter comes with a protective laptop sleeve. For the isolated travelers, these bags will give backpacking a different meaning to staying connected.  Never lose power, store all your camera gear in Soot.  soot.me
