A HOME FOR YOUR CREDIT CARDS AND YOUR PHONE

You can probably slip your license into your phone’s protective case, but I bet that’s about it. CM4’s new Q Card Case holds your iPhone 4, 4S, or 5, but also comes with a slim integrated wallet that fits a couple of credit cards, an ID, and even a little cash. The credit card sleeve doesn’t feel too bulky when loaded, and remains tight enough to secure its contents without making it impossible to access your cash or cards. The case is rugged enough to handle drops, and it comes with a scratch-resistant screen guard. $39.99 at Amazon or CM4.

TOUGH NEW LUGGAGE KEEPS CONTENTS SAFE

Pacsafe’s new Toursafe adventure luggage can withstand the usual flings and dings from airline travel, but can also protect your bags from being tampered with en route. The soft-sided luggage is made with a lightweight but slashproof stainless-steel mesh that’s built into the material. It prevents anyone from slicing your bag and snatching its contents. Pacsafe’s new puncture-resistant Toughzip technology prevents the lockable zippers from being pried open with a pen or similar object. Each bag has a handy front zippered pocket, a long telescoping handle, padded top and side handles and, my favorite feature, drawstring compression material that closes around the bag’s contents and keeps everything in place. $220-$260.  360-651-7999, www.pacsafe.com
