The summer solstice hit on Monday, which means we officially experienced the longest day of the year…and if you live in the arctic circle, the sun never set! This week also officially means summer is here. Temperatures have been uncharacteristically hot in Denver, and we’re feeling the excitement of summer plans, whether they involve travel, staycations, starting new hobbies, spending time with family and friends, or just taking a moment to enjoy the day.
Summer also means sales. Why? Because as we move into long, summer days, there is more time for leisure, fun, and of course, shopping for all of the products you need for your summer journeys.
Our customers have been eyeing all of our products in anticipation of the Summer Sale, where you can get up to 65% off on certain items.
We’ve collected the 5 top-ranked items under $50 based on customer reviews, ratings and recommendations. These are your summer must-haves and now is the time to buy. You deserve it for witnessing another orbit around the sun!
The Ultimate Classic Pack
The JanSport SuperBreak Backpack is a universal favorite. It’s musical festival ready, bike-friendly and primed for smart shoppers who are getting a head start on Back to School Shopping! Look, you’ve probably owned a Jansport if you went to Elementary school. The good news is, now your entire family can have one. This is a number one selling bag and there is a color or pattern for everyone (53 and counting). These backpacks are starting at $29.99!
This anti-theft bag by Travelon is the next travel buddy you should consider investing in. It was designed with RFID blocking technology which helps keep your personal information safe from pickpocketers. Besides that, this crossbody is perfect for the simple gal living a very minimalist, yet on-the-go lifestyle. Our customers absolutely adore it for airport travel because it’s comfortably stored on your body with a compartment for every single item you bring with you. Plus it’s on sale from $49.99 to $31.99 and comes in four colors. Rejoice.
Packing cubes have been one of the most popular products on eBags since the beginning of time. We often hear the phrase, “once you go packing cubes, you don’t go back.” It’s true. Packing cubes are the #1 recommended packing accessory from travel experts around the world. Our customers tell us they buy a different color for each member of their family and pack different themes in each sized cube – for instance, large pants and jackets in the big cube, toiletries or undergarments in the smaller tube. If you don’t have them or need a gift for almost any occasion, they are currently on sale from $85 to $39.99. This Value Set + Shoe Sleeves is worth every cent. It comes with sleeves for your shoes – keep the shoes safe; keep everything else clean. Can’t argue with THAT logic!
The Savvy Traveler
This bag is notorious for the work-hard-play-harder mentality and that’s exactly why it’s so popular with our customers. It’s cool enough for school and savvy enough for professionals. So here’s what usually happens. Jane buys the bag for her husband’s commute to work. Jon takes said bag on their trip to Africa. Jane falls in love with bag. Jane buys bag for self.
So be like Jane and check out this bag while it’s on sale. The SwissGear Travel Gear ScanSmart Backpack 1900 (was $130 now $64.99) also features TSA intelligence with lay-flat technology, audio connectivity, and a pretty sweet ventilation system.

Krista’s passion for exploration and world travel was ignited in college when she packed her suitcase and moved to Sweden to study International Business for a year. She hopped on a train or plane every weekend from her home in Uppsala and traveled throughout Europe, making new friends and new memories along the way. Soon after her college career ended, she felt the tug of wanderlust again, and this time went even further…to live on the beach down under in a little place called Australia! Krista’s traveling habit started stacking up frequent flyer miles and she didn’t have a way to organize or utilize all of the points she was earning. So she decided to take matters into her own hands and founded UsingMiles , a company that would help frequent flyers and road warriors become mile moguls. Fast forward to today and you will find Krista engaging with travelers from all over the world to help them find the perfect bag. And of course, planning her next trip.
