The product: Oregami Luggage
The pitch: Oregami Luggage launches the first bag in a line of suitcases that the company says makes packing and traveling a breeze. Oregami has a patent-pending internal organizing system that includes three organizer compartments that fold out easily, can each be taken out separately and placed into hotel drawers, and reconnected and folded back into the suitcase when it’s time to leave.
Usefulness level: 9
Our take: Regular travelers know the best way to get settled into a new place is to actually unpack. Here, you just pull the suitcase apart and toss the pieces in the dresser drawers. Easy, breezy. And when there’s no dresser available, the organizational structure would keep you from digging through layers of neatly folded and pressed pants to find a pair of dress socks. Assuming it’s relatively easy to put back together, we’re on board with this idea.

Calling all busy moms! If your sneakers got a little lonely this winter, take a chance on a new training program specifically designed for your lifestyle.
The all-digital Train Like a Mother Club uses social media, videos, and podcasts to make race training ultra-accessible for new moms, with around-the-clock support to accommodate a parent’s hectic schedule. The much-anticipated program was launched in January by Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea, best known as Runner’s World contributors and co-authors of three successful and inspirational books about endurance running and motherhood: Run Like a Mother (2010), Train Like a Mother (2012), and Tales from Another Mother Runner (2015).
The program offers nine distinct training plans that range from “5K Finish It” to “Marathon Own It,” with prices from $35–$63. Each week is broken down into two workout programs: one that you must do, and another that you do if you can spare the time. After all, as McDowell says, “No week is ever what you planned it to be.”
The short online videos are easy to follow, and the post-run exercises can be done in the comfort of your living room. (While all runners should be wary of injury, new mothers have diminished core strength and stability, making targeted strengthening exercises imperative to avoid injury.)
