Swiss Digital Women’s Smart Massaging Backpack – Review

Swiss Digital Women's Smart Massaging Backpack

Take comfort to work with the Swiss Digital Women’s Smart Massaging Backpack. I almost don’t know where to start as I run through all the features this bag offers from a fashionable and classy look to a back and straps that actually give you a massage! I suppose I will start on the very outside of this backpack.

I LOVE the colors! The rose on black is incredibly stunning and you get the right touch of rose gold in the zipper designs. Before you unzip this backpack’s many zippers, you get your phone charging port and power button for the back massager.

Just by unzipping the small side pocket of the Smart Massaging Backpack you will find 2 built-in USB cords. The white cord runs to the back massage power and the black cord runs to your outer USB phone plug to charge your device/phone. You keep your power bank in the side pocket (or remove it as you board the plane which will make this bag TSA-friendly) and plug in either cord. Switch from massage power to phone charging without removing the bag from your back by reaching that side pocket and changing cords or use 2 power banks and keep one in the side for massage power and one in the sleeve in the main pocket for your phone charge. This backpack is so versatile.

The Smart Massaging Backpack has so much organization potential which suites me 100% as I need to stay as organized as possible when working or traveling. The protective laptop pad even fits my Macbook Pro with its leather case on!

With my old bag I had to take my laptop out of its case to fit it in the protective sleeve. It has the RFID Protection Pocket.

Here is the back! Here you will find the power button for the back massage. It is located in the lower back pad and you just make sure you have a power bank to the white cord in the side pocket and hold that power button down for about 3 seconds to activate. Once you feel the vibration, keep clicking that power button until you reach the desired massage vibration (there is more than one – back, shoulder or both)!

There is a mid outer sleeve so you can secure your backpack over your luggage handle. Adjust the shoulder straps easily with a lot of room and also there is a secure waist strap if you need.

The Smart Massaging Backpack includes the same features as SwissDigital smart backpacks with the extra benefit of a personal back massager. 

Massaging backpacks ($99): Available at Costco

How To Find Comfortable & Waterproof Work Boots For Men

waterproof work boots

If you are required to wear boots in your line of work, you must know how frustrating it can get to find the perfect pair. You see an ad for waterproof work boots and you immediately jump on it, buy the product and end up with your feet soaking wet after the next shift. How annoying, isn’t it? The worst part is, you cannot exactly blame anyone but yourself.

Here’s another scenario. You finally get shoes that are waterproof, but they are so uncomfortable that you feel like screaming while wearing them. That must shift your focus away from your job and onto your toes, which can very well lead to certain accidents. Even if it doesn’t, the pain is enough to make you feel awful. Surprisingly, the pain gets even worse when you take the shoes off, which is why men almost always opt for steel toe work boots, as described here.

How To Choose Waterproof Work Boots Wisely

When you need new boots for work, you will definitely find that you have a lot of options. The market is brimming with products like these and sometimes, there seems to be no way to differentiate between good and bad ones. Every manufacturer out there will claim that they are selling the very best product, which makes your choice difficult.

If you are in a rush, you are bound to make a bad decision. That might cost you some money, as well as cause some unpleasant experiences on the job. Comfort is only one part of the coin, while the quality of being waterproof is another. You need to find yourself the boots that pack both these features carefully together.

The key is to take some time, so that you end up making the right decision. Do you really want to buy new work footwear every other month? If you have enough money to throw down the drain, then I guess you can do that. If, however, you don’t want to waste your hard earned salary, you should be a bit more careful.

In order to help you make the best possible decision and be really happy with your choice, I will give you a few useful tips on how to buy waterproof work boots online and have them be comfortable too. It’s true that this is a process that might last a while, but if you know all the right steps, it will be much quicker. Here’s what you have to do.

Ask For Recommendations

As I have already mentioned, there’s nothing worse than buying shoes advertised to be waterproof and comfortable and then ending up having troubles with them. In order to avoid that, you should see if any of your friends or colleagues have some recommendations. If nothing else, they will be able to tell you which brands to avoid at all cost.

Check The Manufacturer’s Reputation

Word travels fast, doesn’t it? This is a good thing, because it will help you determine the reputation of a specific shoe manufacturer. When you have your eyes set on a particular pair of work boots, you should really check how reputable, reliable and trustworthy the manufacturer is. This is your key towards not falling for fake ads ever again. If you find that a certain manufacturer isn’t really loved by the people who have bought their products in the past, it’s best to stay clear of them and continue your search.

Read Product Reviews

You might have found a great manufacturer and noticed that they have a large selection of products to offer. You can take just any boots from the list and you’ll be perfectly happy, right? Wrong! All of their products are made differently and you need boots that are proven to be waterproof and comfortable. That means that you’ll have to do some more research to find the perfect pair.

Here are some more tips to help you in your research: https://bethepro.com/guide-to-choosing-the-best-work-boots/

Here’s the trick to choosing the best pair of waterproof work boots once you have found the manufacturer and the brand you like. Start reading product reviews. Find as much info about that specific pair of boots as possible, so that you determine whether people who have already bought them have had any issues with the product. If they were generally satisfied, feel free to make the purchase.

Replace single-use plastics with sustainable products from TheOtherStraw

In the battle against using wasteful plastic, I became introduced to theotherstraw and its sustainable products. It’s a no-brainer that reusable straws are much better than disposable plastic straws, but I had wondered a few things about switching away from plastic straws. 1) How do you keep them clean (enough) and 2) what would they be made of especially if I may use them in a hot beverage. Can it be safe to use long term?

theotherstraw is my new favorite for a few reasons. Keeping it clean is easy with the included eco-friendly cleaning brush made from 100% natural coconut fiber. The straws can be washed in the dishwasher and reused hundreds of times, however hand-washing them in warm water is best for longevity.

The straws are made from organic bamboo in Vietnam and come with a sustainable sip bag for clean storage. Why bamboo? Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, it absorbs greenhouse gasses and absorbs carbon dioxide and releases up to 35% more oxygen than trees to name a few of its many benefits.

However, theotherstraw does not only provide bamboo straws, but they also offer bamboo cutlery and toothbrushes. As well, they also took care of coconut shell waste and create coconut bowls! These very durable real coconut bowls help reduce more environmental waste as billions of coconuts are harvested every year, and most of their shells are either burned as waste or sent to landfill.

50% of theotherstraw profits go towards supporting projects that protect the world’s oceans and marine life. Every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic ends up in our oceans and killing marine life. Your purchase makes a different in more ways than one. Shop theotherstraw!
