KEYSMART URBAN21 COMMUTER BACKPACK
A stellar performer during testing by Global Traveler, the Urban21 is a tough, well- designed bag perfect for commuting and business trips.

Made to fit under airline seats as a personal item, the bag is perfect for carrying your tech gear and other small items you might want to access in transit. Thanks to a HexBreathe back pad, it’s comfortable even in warmer conditions, and high-quality construction makes the Urban21 feel like it should last for years. $239.99.
BOSE SOUNDBAR 700
The march of the smart speaker continues un- abated, but most popular models offer middling sound quality at best. Renowned audio company Bose set out to fix that, adding smart capabilities to its well-reviewed soundbar. Compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice commands, it also offers Apple AirPlay 2 playback, and a sleek design means the Soundbar 700 looks great in any room. If you’re looking for a complete audio system, make the device the centerpiece of a surround sound setup by adding a bass module and separate speakers. $799.95.

Mobile photography developed by leaps and bounds in recent years, but for too many people their snaps remain imprisoned on devices.

It’s perfect for holiday time, letting you share 2.3-inch by 3.4- inch photos with your loved ones instantly. Take photos, edit them on your phone, then print to give your family and friends a physical souvenir from this festive season and other events. $149.99.

It makes for a hugely immersive experience at a lower price point than rival companies, which charge around $700 for the goggles alone. The Anafi proves a great drone for portability and boasts a 180-degree tilting camera. The FPV pack ships with the drone, glasses, a backpack and other accessories. $799.
