Here is OT's latest hand-picked list of some of the best travel merchandise available. 


If you think that smart technology is limited to electronics, Da Milano is here to prove you wrong. A luxury leather accessory brand, their latest collection, Smart Luggage, sports some cutting-edge technology. Three different security features help keep your bags safe.

They have also added GPS and Bluetooth, so your bags can be tracked via a phone app. What’s more, you will never have to worry about excess baggage again because the built-in weighing scales keep you informed if you’re going over the limit. Handcrafted to give it a sophisticated, sleek design, the Smart Luggage line’s contemporary look is perfect for the modern traveller. Price on request;


We are always on the lookout for the best watches, and this month we are very impressed with Luminox’s Master Carbon SEAL collection. Last year, they released the timeless blue strap with a navy dial; this spring, they have added a pop of orange on the grey and blue bezels. The Master Carbon SEAL’s rugged, tough exterior matches its promise of durability. The high-tech carbon compound used for the casing is three times lighter than titanium, yet sturdier and scratch resistant. The watch is also water resistant to a depth of 300m, able to withstand the extreme pressure of deep dives. Finally, the Super-LumiNova tech on the hour marks and bezel provides maximum visibility for up to 25 years. Available in blue and black; from INR 46,265;

Perhaps this is as close as we humans are going to get to the Gallifreyan sonic screwdriver. With a diameter of about 1cm, it is just a tad too thick to make a comfortable pen, but it can double up as a stylus for your tablet. Plus with mini tools to mend your specs with, if nothing it will thrill your inner geek. (INR 1,799;



Sunglasses made of wood—whatever next? Sasha, an eyewear brand inspired by the love for the planet, have introduced their Origin collection of shades. It has 15 sunglasses that promise to be ‘super chic’, versatile and fun. Made of sustainably sourced walnut wood frames, each item is crafted by hand. By wearing one of these, you make a statement about your commitment to the future of the planet. Not to mention that the wooden frames do look rather natty. (From INR 5,400;



A travel kit from Kama Sutra Company—you have three guesses what it’s all about. Never mind, we’ll tell you anyway. Ensconced in a pink, lavender and black zip case, the Lover’s Travel Kit contains the Strawberry Crème Body Soufflé ‘kissable body cream’; Love Liquid Classic, a premium lubricant; Oil of Love Original body oil, also ‘kissable’; a tea light candle, and finally, a mini feather tickler. Makes a perfect honeymoon gift, or maybe buy it for yourself. ($33;
