With two components, The Nue Co’s Sleep Kit comes with Magnesium Ease spray and Sleep Drops, make falling—and staying—asleep easier. The spray—made using magnesium chloride with lavender and arnica oil—helps to reduce muscle tension. Simply spray it on and massage into your face (be prepared for a mild tingle and the flavor if it hits your lips). The sleep drops are essentially a tincture, made with sleep aids like Valerian root, passionflower, catnip and chamomile—all of which help lull you to sleep without any groggy vibes the next morning. All ingredients are non-habit-forming, alcohol-free and have little to no scent, so these products are great for air travel—and jet lag.
Unlike most compression socks, these ones from Happy Socks don’t look like compression socks—thanks to their cheerful, colorful pattern. By staying tight and high on the leg, the socks allow for better blood-flow during long flights and reduce leg swelling. Made from combed cotton, polymide and elastane, they function like performance socks.
While alcohol-based, BYREDO’s rinse-free hand wash is gentle and nourishing. At 30ml, this lotion is ideal for air travel and everyday use—whenever your hands need a refresh. Our favorite fragrance (nothing like those harsh chemical scents of other hand sanitizers) contains notes of pink pepper, patchouli, magnolia and rose petals, but isn’t overpowering.
This stand collar sweater is a fleece piece that’s made for cold weather and outdoor adventures. With hand-warmer pockets and a zip-up collar that blocks wind, it’s super-functional. Plus, the various shades of olive green—and the fabric textures—means it looks great too.
Made in Italy, this textured-leather wallet is divided into four compartments so that you can keep various currencies, IDs, tickets, notes and more in their right place. The cheerful sky-blue colorway is contrasted by four different colored zips, and the luxurious cross-grain calf leather will age beautifully. It’s available in eight colorways—including metallic versions.
Bite’s chewable toothpaste—just bite it and brush—is TSA-approved and impressively potent, not to mention tidier than most paste versions. Our pick, the mint charcoal flavor, is naturally whitening, pleasantly minty and harsh chemical-free.
The Rimowa Cabin—a 36-liter suitcase—is carry-on luggage at its most efficient. This carefully designed, German-engineered suitcase features TSA-approved locks, an interior flex divider, innovative multi-wheel system and a telescopic handle. Super-durable but still lightweight, it’s available in two matte colorways, or five glossy options.
Made from chamomile and lavender (of course with no caffeine or stimulants), this Sleep Tea is an ideal way to wind down. More than encouraging one to fall sleep faster, it also coaxes the body into a restorative deep sleep cycle—hopefully meaning drinkers should wake up well-rested.
J Crew has made a travel-suit jacket that looks nothing like a travel-suit jacket. It doesn’t appear stretchy or synthetic (though it’s made from a mix of cotton, nylon and elastane) like many do. Further, it’s water-repellant, flexible and, best of all, it’s machine washable—so when you’re traveling, it’ll easily survive the hotel laundry service.
Made from high-quality vegetable-tanned leather, Lotuff’s Day Tote is a versatile bag that’s both roomy and unassuming. While it’s certainly luxurious, it’s also durable—with a YKK Excella zipper, brass hardware and double-stitched nesting handles. With an additional, removable shoulder strap, it’s versatile but ultimately timeless.
This single-breasted raincoat, the Ventile Mac 3.0, by from Private White V.C. is made in Manchester from high-quality cotton, is 100% waterproof and 100% breathable. With two internal pockets, it features military-grade copper hardware, and is covered by a lifetime repair service. Available in five subtle colorways, our pick is sage.
Lebon toothpaste is a natural, flavorful and French option that is the perfect size for traveling—at about 25ml. This one in particular is naturally flavored with green tea and sweet mint, along with a natural whitening agent made from Papaya extract.
This Ethiopian coffee, roasted by Augie’s Coffee Roasters, is one of the best instant coffees available. Boasting notes of white tea and with a bright, lively aftertaste, it’s exciting from the scent to sip. One box ($16) contains single sachets for five cups, so it’s also a smart option for camping or other kinds of travel.
With a beautiful yet subtle scent, Aesop’s Reverence Aromatique Hand Balm offers heavy-duty moisturizing without making hands greasy. The fragrance is suitable for all genders; its earthy but citrus scent (we love the touch of vetiver) is gently refreshing. Packaged in a convenient tube for easy squeezing, it’s perfect for chilly winter winds, or as a pick-me-up during air travel.
This sophisticated case from hardgraft protects your iPad Pro in 100% hand-stained, vegetable-tanned Italian leather. Inside, your device is kept safe in a grey microsuede lining, and there’s also a handy Apple Pencil loop that doubles as a latch.
This 13-inch postal case from Human Made is just the right size for a laptop or some valuables you’d rather not misplace—a phone, passport, wallet or a tablet. Though it looks like a standard-issue postal envelope, this one is made from 100% polyester, has a velcro seal and a bright orange padded interior. Price is in Japanese Yen.
Embrace your inner Batman with this bat-shaped sleep mask. Made from 100% silk (perhaps more Bruce Wayne’s taste) it’s incredibly soft and comfortable on the eyes and set into place with an elastic band. The embroidered mask comes with a carry pouch—to keep it clean and safe—and will surely help your next snooze, whether at home or in transit.
Aptly named The Wanderer, this empty case is made to fill with the PHLUR scent you already own. Super-simple to use, simply pump the larger bottle into the travel-sized spray—no need to buy separate mini fragrances. Made from aircraft-grade aluminum, it’s super-sturdy and TSA-approved.
Traveling can leave skin dry, the body dehydrated and the mind a bit foggy. But, Ursa Major’s 4-in-1 face tonic battles all three, with a couple quick spritzes. The multi-purpose product cleanses, exfoliates, moisturizers and soothes. With notes of lavender, fir and orange, this spray will awaken the eyes, sooth the skin and reset the mind.
This sleep time product is a tale of two cities: produced by The Glad Hours, the silk pajama-makers based in LA, and stocked at the one-floor Austin Motel. The blood red fingernails on this silk eye mask match the red-orange vinyl cushion bed-frames and lip-shaped bedside phones—and signal the wrath to come of whoever disturbs thy beauty sleep. It’s a hotel-level amenity worth bringing home.
Using your smartphone while riding a bicycle is difficult and dangerous, but SmartHalo is a bike accessory that allows for smartphone-level navigation, fitness-tracking and messaging—with added anti-theft features and an LED light for nighttime riding. The system is small enough to attach to the center of a bike’s handlebars, and it comes with a unique key so riders can leave it attached without worrying about it going anywhere—and it can stay there for three weeks on a full charge.
TUMI’s new Hagen Backpack is part of their collection of products whose exterior is made from recycled nylon scraps and lining from recycled water bottles—all the while maintaining the brand’s high standards. With a padded laptop sleeve, dual-access waterproof bottle pocket, key leash and an external loop designed for attaching this bag to the handle of a suitcase, the Hagen is a functional product for those on the move. Thanks to its classic shape and colorway, it’s also timeless. Plus, the brand offers free monogramming customization options.
Master & Dynamic has released the MW07—their iteration of compact, case-carry bluetooth earphones. The brand has made—and perfected—over-ear and standalone headphones, but this is their foray into the growing wireless earbud market. The technical specs in these tiny devices are inexplicably good—making them some of the best sounding in-ear speakers out there. 10mm Beryllium drivers deliver rich, deep sound to listeners and the handcrafted acetate looks great. They’re packed away, when not in use, in a stainless steel case that also acts as its charger. And no worries about either of them falling out of the ear—the wide range of bulbs and “fit wings” lets you customize the size to your liking.
