(UPDATE 6/12: Last chance to back this Kickstarter is Thursday the 14th at 9am – it’s already funded (over $2MM out of only a $14K goal) and is scheduled to be shipped in September 2018)

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

Today I wanted to talk a bit about Tropic – which says it is the ultimate travel shoe

Tropic Ultimate travel shoe features

The Expeditioner Toiletry bag measures only 6″by10″ (and 3″ deep) but due to a unique design lets you pack quite a bit in there. Here are a few pictures of the Tropic Ultimate travel shoe

and here are some of the features as compared with other types of sneakers
