This small, portable packing vacuum can compress soft apparel to make room for everything else in your suitcase. Powered by USB, the handy device can identify the pressure inside the bag and will switch off on its own. Each vacuum comes with a reusable medium-sized bag, but small and large options are available too. Ideal for packing before long trips, or on your way home after buying a few souvenirs.
Made from vegetable-tanned Italian leather, the Generation Sidekick Wash Bag from Troubadour is an elegant iteration of the classic dopp kit. With a waxed cotton interior (which is 100% waterproof) and a zipper that loops and seals just beyond the bag to form a hanger/handle, it’s highly functional. Its three-liter capacity also makes it an ideal size for carry-on.
In collaboration with Eastpak, Maison Kitsuné has turned its iconic fox logo into a camouflage pattern. Featuring a black spring-hook lanyard, the bag is covered in foxes of all sizes in different shades of blue. With a volume of two liters and an exterior made from ultra-durable fabric, the pouch can be used as a purse, dopp kit or tech pouch.
With a lifetime warranty, this durable dopp kit is made for all kinds of adventures. Thanks to a near 360-degree zipper, access is easy. Plus with eight internal pockets and a handy removable TSA-compliant liquids bag, the details of this accessory are hidden beneath its seemingly plain exterior.
With a waxed canvas upper, rubberized bottom and soft leather grip handles, this bag can withstand the worst and still look best. There are dedicated pockets for everything you need handy and separate padded areas for a tablet and laptop. Finished off with a waterproof top-zipper, the 26.2 liter bag can accommodate the demands of daily commuting—gym gear, work necessities and technology included.
Made from vacuum-insulated stainless steel, Mizu water bottle is outfitted with a reusable straw and an “adventure purifier.” The latter filters 99.999% of contaminants, making it ideal for any outdoor setting. And, the 22oz capacity is convenient for longer treks and less refills.
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.
Full of unique, influential and fascinating concrete structures in Tokyo, this guidebook is in Japanese and English, and aimed at locals and visitors alike. With maps to striking buildings designed by Tadao Ando, Le Corbusier, Tengo Kanze and more, the book is edited by Naomi Pollock and features photography by Jimmy Cohrssen. Price is in Euros.
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.
Easily rolled up, this leather backgammon set from Moore & Giles is the ideal companion for trips. Backed with Baldwin Oak leather, and lined with French nubuck, this is a durable set that will get better with use. Losing a piece isn’t a worry, thanks to the handy zip-sealed pouch that also rolls into the kit when you’re finished playing.
