This cool, quirky and slim utility tool called the Pocket Monkey is TSA compliant. It has 12 functions packed into 1 millimeter of stainless steel and is the size of a credit card so you can carry it with you at all times. It's a bottle opener, letter opener, orange peeler, cell phone stand can be used a screwdrivers (flat head, micro flat, 2D phillips) and as 6 nest hex wrenches and more!
Do you use plastic baggies to hold your personal care products when you travel? Now there is better solution. The Flanabag is a quart-size vinyl bag that is durable, functional and stylish with its trendy fabric trimmings and gussets that allow the bag to open wide for packing. A wrist strap makes it easy to grab from your carry-on luggage. Orange and blue colors available.
Here are some travel comfort products from a company called Cabeau. The inflatable neck pillow gave a lot more support and held its shape much better than my former inflatable travel pillow (which shall remain nameless). I also liked the soft material and the pouch which allows you to neatly and compactly store the deflated pillow for next time. I'm also a fan of eye masks in general since I tend to take a lot of long haul flights and often take red eyes.
I recently received a HuMn wallet and it's definitely one of my favorite cool travel product finds. It's got a sleek and minimalist design with customizable colors and while it's small and streamlined, it can accommodate most currencies. But the best feature is the aluminum plates that protect your credit cards from electronic theft. Pick pockets have gone high tech using EMI and RFID skimming devices to capture your I.D. and credit card information. In fact, Consumer Reports has an article worth reading on how credit card skimming is done and awhile ago one of the news shows did a story on this and said one of the favorite places to steal credit card information is at airports. Despite being small and streamlined, the wallet can accommodate almost all world notes.
Prices range from $76-$114.
