A ventilated shoe pocket will give your sneakers, up to size 13, a place to breathe instead of incubating the odor-causing bacteria. A padded laptop compartment fits a computer or tablet up to 15 inches. Quick access pockets on both sides keep your pens and phone in easy reach.

  • Roll Pro III Carrying case

    If you own a GoPro, you understand how difficult it is to organize the intricate accessories that come along with it for travel trips. I, personally, bought a soft lunchbox and toss everything in there for big trips, a short term solution that leaves me rummaging for parts and ultimately losing pieces. Conventional camera bags have voids of space for large equipment and are designed to protect delicate units. Since GoPro has defied both size and fragility, a new means of organizing and carrying is also in order. With the RollPro III, Riseful has set out to create an organizer that compliments GoPro’s characteristics by designing it exclusively for the GoPro and its accessories. The result is a fat free case that tames the GoPro and its entourage of pieces in a functional and beautiful fashion. Roll Pro III $79.00
