For The Digital Adventurer: Slicks Travel Pack

In today’s world, it’s not uncommon to come across global travelers remotely working their way across unique landscapes via coffee shops and video conferences, or businessmen-turned-adventurers milking their latest work trip for some extra adrenaline. No matter what kind of nomad you are though, staying connected and organized is a priority. With checked bag fees on a never ending climb, being able to simplify your luggage and packing list is important, and that’s where the Slicks Travel Pack comes in. Featuring organization for everything from your daily bike commute to extended adventure travel, this mighty little pack eliminates the need for carrying extra luggage when you’re traveliong off the beaten path.

The main body of the pack is built to act as a pack, sling bag, or briefcase depending on how you stow the shoulder straps. When deployed, the comfortable harness is as at home tackling beaches and trails as it is an urban environment. Additionally, it will accommodate a fifteen inch laptop securely for travel. Multiple organization compartments keep a spare pair of shoes (or other bulky items) and high value electronics stowed securely. Reflective hits and an included rain cover make this more than just a drab commuter bag though. Combined with the comfortable back panel and smooth body, these features make it an ideal tool for everything from cross continent hauls to weekend getaways.

Where the Slicks Travel Pack really shines though is in the removable organizers. With both a suit bag and mobile wardrobe organizers, you can fit much more than simply a day’s worth of office gear. Fully expanded, the pack easily swallows your favorite suit for that job interview or big presentation, but also everything you’ll need for some after hours adventures – all without the worry of wrinkles or mixing up dirty laundry with your clean dress shirt. Sure there are other bags that can handle this, but at twenty-five liters, the Slicks pack packs much more into a compact – and stylish – package than that ancient rolling bag you deal with now. Their Kickstarter is fully funded (and only has a couple days left!) so make sure you get one ordered soon, or you’ll be stuck waiting through the best summer and fall travel without one.

Whether you're a fan of mixed martial arts (MMA) or just curious about the behind-the-scenes routines of professional fighters, you might be wondering how UFC champions "Suga" Sean O'Malley and Aljamain "Funkmaster" Sterling get ready for fight week.

One slightly controversial part of their prep is cutting weight up to the fight. Weight cutting is a common practice in most combat sports and refers to dropping weight before a competition to compete in a specific weight class.

Shohei Ohtani all but gone, MLB franchise LA Angels may also lose Mike Trout: Report
Our GM hopes they both move to Chavez Ravine to play for The Dodgers
Shohei Otani playing baseball

The Los Angeles Angels may be on their way to a major team overhaul. Shohei Ohtani, who is one of the best and most innovative two-way players in the history of baseball, has already made it clear that he wants to leave the team, and now, news has broken suggested that Mike Trout, the team's other major star, could also be on his way out the door. Needless to say, losing both of their major stars could have an enormous impact on what the Angels look like moving forward.
Shohei Ohtani is almost definitely leaving
At the end of this season, during which Ohtani has been riddled with injuries, the phenom will be a free agent, and those closest to the league suggest that he's likely to sign with another team. Everyone from the Los Angeles Dodgers to the New York Mets is expected to pursue him this off-season for understandable reasons, and Ohtani has previously made it clear that he's not necessarily thrilled with the way this season has gone for the Angels, who are set to miss the playoffs completely.

Ohtani has yet to formalize any sort of deal with another team, but the question seems to be more about where he'll end up than whether he'll stay with the Angels. The team did choose to hold onto him past the trade deadline, a move they say they don't regret, so it's still possible that the two sides find some way to come to an agreement. In all likelihood, though, Ohtani's time with the Angels is done, and he'll be in a new uniform when the next season starts.
