Inside President & Founder, Tom Romine’s Travel Bag
Cultivate President and Founder, Tom Romine travels a lot between assisting with on-site gift experiences, meeting with brand partners, and more. We wanted to give you an inside look at what he carries with him both in the air and on the road.
Victorinox Altmont Original Vertical-Zip Laptop Backpack
This backpack from Victorinox takes Tom’s regular travel to the next level, engineered to keep his laptop and other essentials safe while he’s on the go. Seamlessly blending function and comfort, this bag features zippered mesh pocket, key fob, pen holder, name tag, two accessory pockets, and elastic USB device holder, as well as enhanced shoulder straps for maximum support. It’s safe to save this bag is Tom’s new favorite travel companion, keeping him organized and stylish from departure to arrival.
Firstly, it’s important to carry items specific to your comfort and well being while traveling. Tom makes sure he’s never without his Burt’s Bees nourishing chapstick, Visine, or Kiehl’s ultimate strength hand salve for those flights that can be extra dry. In turn, his Corkcicle 16 oz canteen is always filled and ready to keep hydration flowing. And because we can all relate to tight flight schedules that leave gaps in between our coffee servings, Tom always carries Viter Energy caffeine mints to keep him energized throughout the day.
Secondly, it’s important to be as productive as possible while traveling because business never sleeps. Tom uses his Apple AirPods to cancel out potential noise while he hammers away at emails. Though some flights do leave time for a little leisure, Tom travels with his Kindle with the current book he’s reading, as well as a recent issue of Fast Company magazine.
“I’m currently geeking out on golf by reading Dream Golf: The Making of Bandon Dunes in preparation for my maiden voyage this summer to one of the world’s most amazing golf destinations on the Oregon Coast.”

And finally, when he lands, Tom always has his trusty Cultivate padfolio for diligent note-taking, as well as business cards for any potential networking opportunities. Oh and of course the latest and greatest pair of sunglasses! Pictured here are a pair from our brand partners, Raen.
