We all need a healthy dose of [travel] inspiration these days. So, starting today we will be accepting entries for a new collection of Cubed®️ Travel Journals. Five new journals will be selected for publication from travelers, just like yourself! There have been a number of Cubed®️ Travel Journals submitted by newsletter readers over the years. Their journal entries include Iceland, Kilimanjaro, Morocco/Sahara Desert, Trans-Siberian Railway, and The Inca Trail.
Submissions will be open for one week (through 4/28/20 @ Midnight PST) and then our team will select our 5 favorite entry ideas that will then get turned into their own Cubed®️ Travel Journal page. PLUS, each selected entry will win their very own Cubed®️ Travel Jacket!
Once we have published all 5 stories, we will open up voting for The Grand Prize. A REAL Travel Stimulus ✅ valued at $1200 in airfare anywhere in the world. General disclaimer stuff: one entry per person, no purchase necessary, not open to anyone affiliated with D7 VENTURES LLC.
Please email your entry to [email protected]. Keep it short, a preview of the full journal with say 100 words, and one or two photos to go along with it. Once we have selected the 5 finalists, we will contact you directly to draft the full Cubed Journal!
The D7 VENTURES LLC Team looks forward to reading everyone's submissions & good luck!

Journey with us to the crossroads of the world, Istanbul. One of our favorite cities where Europe and Asia meet in this cultural and cosmopolitan capital of Turkey. D7 VENTURES LLC has a lot of history here as the first pairs of our Pick-Pocket Proof Pants®️ were made here nearly a decade ago!
We start with a visit to the historic Sultanahmet district where we witness a magnificent sunset on the eve of Eid Mubarak over the Blue Mosque. Then we cross the Bosphorus and make our way up to Taksim Square. Istiklal Caddesi, the city's vibrant shopping street has come to life at night. As we explore the area vibrant atmosphere, stumble upon an impromptu dance performance and enjoy famous Turkish mussels served cold on the half shell at one of the city's popular al fresco fast-food dining spots.
Come with us and experience Istanbul Nights!

2018 Business Travel Shirt Collection
Founder/Desginer, Adam Rapp, was interviewed by Chuck Scarborough of Fox News back in 2014. D7 VENTURES LLC had just turned two and sold our 8,000th pair. Chuck asked, "Why not 100,000 pairs? What is the limiting factor to get these things made?" Well Chuck, we just crossed that number and we have our eyes set on 1 million! Watch the whole interview below:
The D7 VENTURES LLC Team is incredibly proud to announce that 100,000 Pick-Pocket Proof® Pants now walk the world! Earlier this month, our team shipped out the special pair. We started with a simple idea, to add security to a great pair of pants in 2007. The idea did not turn into a design right away (there was more traveling to do!) and our pants made their debut in 2010 at Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City Utah, and the first pair was created in early 2011.
We would like to thank you for your support along the way!
Our designs have evolved over the years and we can't wait for our 3rd Generation Nature-Like Nylon™ fabric to debut in early 2018. Read about this major fabric upgrade, two years in the making here.
Our Most Advanced Fabric Yet - Baby Soft, Breathable, Comfortable, Water Resistant & Wearable in All Four Seasons.
These are the characteristics of our signature Nature-Like™ Nylon material made specifically for us by one of the world's largest Nylon manufacturers. First released four years ago, our fabric changed the game for established travelwear. This new type of fiber allows you to experience the travel benefits of 100% Nylon (light-weight, quick-drying, wrinkle-resistant ), with all the benefits of Cotton (comfort, styl, moisture-wicking). Released to our site in 2013, nearly 90,000 pants are walking the world made from this type of fabric!
We are excited to announce the release of our 3rd Generation Nature-Like™ Nylon today! More breathable, comfortable, and durable, all new deliveries of our Pick-Pocket Proof Pants will feature this fabric.
Two years ago, we set out to redefine the material used in our travelwear once again! Already best in class, our designers have succeeded in improving all characteristics that make our technical fabric feel and wear just like cotton pants. Plus we have selected the newest, environmentally friendly water repellant to prevent spills and stains while traveling. Our 2018 Nature-Like Nylon features an advanced PFC Free Eco-conscious (DWR) Durable Water Repellant Finish! We have made the fabric, more breathable, more comfortable, and decreased its environmental footprint!
Join us on tour of how the fabric is made:
Nylon fibers getting set in the loom
Hundreds of cones of Nylon fiber that go into a single yard of finished fabric
