A truly innovative product for all consumers, but especially travelers. The built in wallet, attached to the backpack by velcro, comes with an adjustable, removable strap and a piece of fabric that snaps on thethe back so the velcro wont scratch against your skin. These features allow it to function as a wallet, purse, cross-body bag or backpack pocket. To discourage thieves from stealing it, two fabric flaps are attached by a buckle cover the wallet when worn with the backpack. ($40 per unit, $60 for leather)by Alyssa Bao63-Way Satchel

Crystalline is a line of waterproof, transparent apparel designed with safety in mind.
For example, a thief may be inclined to steal a huge bag, thinking there may be valuables inside it. If the bag is transparent, the thief can see it doesnt hold anything important.
The products are also hi-tech looking, which is a draw for fashionistas.
(Cost per unit ranges from $5-30, depending on product.)
by Alyssa Bao8EcoSac LineEcoSac was designed for people who believe in sustainability for the earth.
Most biodegradable bags are tote bags, but the aim of EcoSac was to design more fashionable handbags and similar accessories that were also green and biodegradable.
