You don’t want to be in a suit all of the time. The ties choke. The panty hose run. Sometimes, you just have to relax a little bit. But at the same time, you don’t want to be hauling around neck pillows and attachable reading lights all in the name of pseudo relaxation. You want compact-ability and functionality. And, as an added bonus, you’ll look cute too.
The Andiamo iQ is, to not be dramatic, the suitcase of the future. Six hundred dollars will get you all sorts of suitcase wonderfulness. The features include a USB charger, remote lock/unlock function, and an anti-theft system which notifies you if someone moves your suitcases 30 meters (or more) away from you. The best part: it should be in stores by this fall.
Looking further into the future, clothing company BauBax has already received over $1,000,000 for their Kickstarter. BauBax promises to create “The King of Travel Jackets”. This jacket promises to have 15 different functions, each tailor made to make your travel experience a little lighter and a little more comfortable. CNN Money called it “The Swiss Army Knife of travel wear”. If you support now, you can received a discounted Travel Jacket.
For something a little more charming and whimsical, check out Jet Set Candy charms. Ranging from $60 to $2,000, they feature all sorts of dainty travel inspired luxury jewelry. Right now, you can shop from collections inspired from six different continents and 33 different countries. It’s just refined enough to wear in board rooms, but cute enough to work a bikini with.
Finally, for the epitome of travel cool, you need headphones. While chic, colorful little earphones are good for working out, if you’re going to be traveling, you want to invest. And not just in size, but in noise canceling ability. The pretentiously named Bose QC25s headphones are the end all and be all when it comes to travel headphones. They are portable. They are light. They are wireless. (35 hours of listening with AAA batteries!) They are comfortable, and they are worth it. At $300, go pick these bad boys up.
