Travel Essentials: Mismo & Flips Audio


Travel Essentials:

Mismo & Flips Audio

Two items that are a must on any getaway are my headphones and a good day-pack.

Stranded on a long flight with nothing but libations and a three-year-old movie playing overhead is the absolute worst.  Bumping my favorite Coachella hits through clean, precise, and hi-def headphones helps me escape.  With Flips Audio, I no longer have to pack headphones and a portable speaker pod.  By simply flipping the ear pods outward, I now have powered speakers to share the music--going from #solo2social.


Then comes the problem of carrying all my daily items: wallet, camera, and phone to name a few.  It's a tough balance between form and function.  A backpack is functional but old-school.  A tote is stylish but not exactly functional for a day of sight-seeing.  Mismo's leather and canvas fold-over backpack is the right proportion to carry all my items and does it in style.
