Okay, travel gear fans. It’s time to stock up for your spring and summer adventures.
Here are my picks for some of the most innovative and useful products on the market this season.
Scottevest (http://www.scottevest.com/): Scottevest offers durable, fashionable travel clothing and outerwear with plenty of compartments for storing all of your travel necessities. Several of there pieces are made especially to hold your iPod or iPad.
Bucky Gusto Neck Pillow: I love neck pillows for long plane, train or bus rides, but I hate how much space they take up in my carry-on. Problem solved: The Bucky Gusto Neck Pillow deflates to fit nicely in your coat pocket or small bag and its irregular shape makes it very comfortable to use. The pillow can be purchased at: http://www.thebetterbackstore.net/Bucky_Gusto_Inflatable_U-Pillow.html
Vapur Anti Bottle
(http://vapur.us/): We all know how important it is to stay hydrated while traveling, but sometimes carrying around a hard plastic bottle is inconvenient. Here’s the solution: The Vapur Anti Bottle is soft and flexible, allowing you to squish it in your carry-on and fill it up after you get through security at the airport. It’s great for carrying in your purse or satchel during all your travel adventures.
GoToob (http://www.humangear.com/GoToob.html): Made from soft, durable silicone, GoToobs are ready to be filled with soap, lotion or any other liquids you need to take with you when you travel. Worried you’ll forget what you put in each one? Don’t be; a small window at the top of the bottle identifies the contents. Simply rotate the window to “Soap”, “Lotion”, etc and tighten the cap to lock in the label.
F1 Swipe Passport Cover (http://www.flight001.com/swipe-passport-cover.html): This stylish and durable passport cover features a clear window for your passport photo and protects this important document when it’s not in use. Available in four jewel tone colors.
