What we love most about LA-made leather goods line This Is Ground is its equal consideration of form and function; the beautifully handcrafted accessories for devices like laptops, smart phones, and tablets keep modern techies both organized and looking completely cool. Now, with the help of portable WiFi provider Karma, the brand has come out with the Voyager: a supple, road trip-ready weekender bag that keeps you connected to the net.
Even without the addition of WiFi capabilities (which adds $175 to the starting price of $725), the bag is designed to manage all your gadgets with built-in compartments for your cords, battery, and mobile (just like their best-selling Mod line for laptops and tablets) and an expandable interior that leaves plenty of room for your personal items as well as larger devices. You can even personalize your property by adding a monogram for an extra $30.
But about that WiFi: Karma's coverage is nationwide and users need not worry about contracts or hidden fees. Data works on a pay-as-you-go plan and won't expire once purchased. On a trip with a your crew? Okay cool—up to eight difference devices can hop on the network and with every additional user, you'll each score 100MB of free data. We're thinking we see a group staycation in our future.
