The friendly skies aren’t as friendly as they used to be. Security lines are long, plane seats jammed, and your fellow passengers are pissed. And while you’ll never have control over flight delays and cancellations, having the right travel gear will significantly improve your trip. Frequent fliers know how to create a first class experience even when they’re stuck in coach. Plan for departure and pack like a pro and you’ll skip the luggage fees, fly through airport security, and arrive refreshed. Wheels Up!
The amount of overhead stow space keeps going down while the price to check luggage keeps going up and up. The Bigger Carry On from Away helps you maximize every square inch the luggage compartment. It comes with a bendable but not breakable outer shell and comes with two compartments. One is for your clothes and another for shoes and grooming products. Best of all, it comes with its own battery so you can charge your USB devices. No more fighting for an outlet at the gate or having your phone dead on arrival.
Keep all your TSA approved grooming products together in one handsome toiletries bag like the Grooming Lounge Signature Dopp Kit. Made of easy to clean canvas it has a loop for hanging it up in the hotel bathroom. Frequent flyers know to keep their kits stocked and ready to go at all times. Stay open to new experiences while on the road. And be ready to jet with the Grooming Lounge “Try Our Stuff” Pack. It comes complete with ten different grooming samples including the award winners like The Shavior, Mug Scrubber and Our Best Smeller.
If you need to check a bag or your lucky set of golf clubs, don’t let them out of your sight before attaching a Tile Mate. With the help of the app, this tiny blue tooth tracker will find your lost luggage showing you exactly where it landed on a map. If the airline promises your missing bag is on the next flight out, you’ll know it. Be smart and slip one inside your passport holder as well.
Upon landing, you’ll want to hit the ground running. Get on board, get some sleep and arrive refreshed. A pillow may be the most important piece of travel gear to own. The Cabeau Evolution Cool Travel Pillow has cooling air vents for a peaceful sweat-free snooze. It’s made from dual-density memory foam and comes with matching earplugs. Nighty night.
When earplugs just ain’t gonna cut it, try Bose Wireless Noise Cancelling Quiet Comfort Headphones. Known for bringing you the best quality sound, Bose headphones can sometimes cost more than the price of a one-way ticket. So why do so many seasoned flyers break them out in flight? When it comes to travel gear, you get what you pay for. They can cancel the noise from the plane’s engine and everything else outside of your favorite tunes or movies. They may not eliminate jet lag, but the cost of drowning out a crying baby on board a long haul flight, priceless.
