(UPDATE 5/21 – reposting as Tuesday is the last day to back this kickstarter)

Occasionally I see some interesting travel related products being crowd funded that I think you guys might be interested in.  We’ve talked about Fluent Forever (an app to learn languages), and the Voyage Travel Bag among others. Here’s a few of the travel related crowd funded projects that I’ve seen

Travel related kickstarters:


Today I wanted to talk a bit about The Voyage Beach Chair. Voyage is the same people that did the Voyage Travel Chair which I know several of you backed.

Voyage Beach Chair features

The Voyage Beach Chair has a distinctive look which makes it easy to spot on the beach, and also has a number of interesting features.  It also has extra wide & padded shoulder straps, real wooden arm rests, adjustable pillow, flexible and an anti-sand mesh seat. Here are a few pictures of the Voyage Beach Chair

One of my favorite features is the hidden secure pocket on the chair so you can leave things like money, passports, wallet somewhere more secure vs. potentially having it stolen while you’re in the water

Here’s a video showing off some of the different options and features of the Voyage Beach Chair
