Afternoon D & C Dedicated To Mumbai


Thursday, September 14, 2017

Who doesn’t love an adventurous getaway? To make sure that you’re prepared, the Mumbai Mix Team picks out trendy travel accessories so that you are travel-ready for your next vacation

There’s nothing like the rush that you get when it’s time to pack your bag and put on your brand new sunglasses. Although we’re well prepared when it comes to vacations, there’s no harm in going the extra mile and shopping for creative knick-knacks. From comfort to keeping fit on the road and making sure that your devices are all juiced up, there’s absolutely no room for outdated gear. Here are a few essentials to keep handy during your journey (and until you’re back home).

Staying connected is the need of the hour in the digital world. And, especially when you’re travelling, you’ll need tech accessories by your side.

Track your bag

Your vacation won’t be a smooth one if you have to worry about lost luggage. But this cool and compact tracker from Trakdot will help you track your bags if the airline has a mix-up. Peace of mind comes at a hefty price, though.

Price: Rs. 10,000


Musical indulgence

Shut out annoying co-passengers and noisy children with this set of headphones from Bose. The QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones are great for carrying around while on a vacation.

Price: Rs. 29,363


Charge up

Running out of battery power is our biggest fear; we wouldn’t want to be disconnected even for a minute. So, you must carry a portable power source along. If you’re an adventurer, you’ll need a powerful device, possibly one with a large battery. Try the 20,000mAh Mi Power Bank, which can easily charge your phone as well as your tablet, given that it comes with two USB ports.

Price: Rs. 2,199


Packing for your travels will be fun with these products.

Backpack stylishly

Backpacking across the country actually does involve you carrying a backpack. So, choose style over comfort with this gorgeous backpack. Made from canvas and leather, it is comfortable and built to last. Available in a grainy beige and a teal green, this backpack is long and deep. It can comfortably fit all your belongings, whether you are carrying a heavy camera or several pairs of clothes. 

Price: Rs. 7,800


Tag it

No one likes standing in long queues to collect their luggage. Even worse is the feeling that it’s lost, or that someone else has picked it up by mistake. So, get a colourful luggage tag that allows you to instantly recognise your bag. This vibrant tag from Happily Unmarried with quirky words on it is perfect for a bubbly personality. You can spot it from miles away.

Price: Rs. 249


Protect your passport

There’s nothing as stressful as not being able to find your passport at the gate. Your heart skips a beat as you frantically search your pockets for it. Often reckless with our ticket home, this funky handcrafted, genuine leather passport case from Nappa Dori could not be more apt for your travels.

Price: Rs. 3,650

Where: Nappa Dori at Colaba

You’ve packed all your favourite holiday clothes and accessories, but your travel gear is incomplete without these trendy additions.

Through rose tinted glasses

Up your style quotient by throwing on this pair of cat-eye sunglasses from U.S. Crown. With pink eyepieces and a golden frame, your outfit will exude a luxurious appeal when you put them on.

Price: Rs. 650


A heeling remedy

When you’re travelling, comfort always takes top spot. But, what if you can be comfortable and stylish at the same time? Trade your regular sneakers or sandals for these wild and free slip-ons from Chumbak. We love the funky canvas detailing and waterproof soles.

Price: Rs. 1,295

Where: Chumbak, Kala Ghoda; and

Whether you’re flying to a chilly country or a humid zone, you should be prepared to cover up on the journey. We love the versatile shade of this woven windbreaker from Forever 21, which makes for a fashionable choice.
