These 5 Items Will Help You Pack Smarter And Lighter

Traveling is certainly an adventure, but packing your luggage and carry-on items shouldn’t be. We’ve all seen or been the person with too much stuff and not enough sleep. Do you remember how it felt? It wasn’t a very good feeling, was it? Drained, exhausted, and irritable are just a few of the words that come to mind when I reflect on my past experiences.  However, with these amazing travel accessories, only available on Kickstarter, you’ll get the help you need to pack smarter, lighter, and faster.

A little quirky, but a lot of fun, the MonPère Travel Pillow is a whole new way to relax and get comfortable during your travels. Face it, when you’re getting ready to go on your next trip you’re not the most worried about a potential language mishap or getting sick from trying new, rich foods. Sure they’ve probably popped into your mind, but what most of the dread is from is knowing how exhausted you’ll be for those first few days or so.

With next-generation flexible support, you can literally mold the MonPère travel accessory into a comfortable resting position. This means no more head bobbles and wobbles waking you up during your flight, train or bus ride because you’ll now have the support you need that will hold the weight of your head literally in its hands.

The silicone interior of the MonPère Travel Pillow is so flexible that you can wrap, twist, and fold your new travel companion to fit your unique sleeping style. You’ll also appreciate the soft, padded cotton sleeve that unzips and allows you to machine wash the cover.

Moms, if you have a small child or baby that you’re traveling with, you can use the MonPère for extra support so you both can get some rest. 🙂

Baggage fees really know how to put a damper on an upcoming trip. Sometimes we are even hit with them unexpectedly due to the bag being overweight. A scenario like this can be extremely frustrating and embarrassing when you have to sit on the floor with your personal belongings, sometimes intimate belongings, and showcase them to a bunch of strangers. During one of my trips, I remember giving the girl behind the counter a bottle of wine out of my suitcase to help lower the weight… It was a real bummer too because I was headed to India where the wine is much more expensive than it is in the States.

If you have ever been in this situation, or even if you haven’t and you’d like to keep it that way, then you’re going to want to check out the Wandervest. Made with 100% eco-friendly sustainable fibers, you can now wear your carry on!

With 20 pockets, the Wandervest makes it easy to store all of your essentials that you would normally pack into your smaller suitcase. This is extremely helpful for those going on short business trips, or if you prefer to travel with less. However, if you do find you need to carry more luggage, the Wandervest is not even counted as being one of your carry-ons.

I know you’re probably thinking, “So.. I’m supposed to sit uncomfortably during my flight?” Not at all! You’ll be pleased to know that after you’ve boarded the plane, the Wandervest converts into a tote bag that can easily be stored under the seat or in the overhead compartment.

Urban Day Bag

Have you ever gone on a trip where you needed more luggage than you normally carry? You definitely don’t forget how exhausted you were when you arrived at your destination with a haul meant for two. “I’m never doing that again.” You told yourself. Yeah, I’ve been there too…

That’s why I was so excited to share the Urban Day Bag, and its plan to help you carry more while technically carrying less with the ability to expand or contract. This means you’ll easily be able to fit all of your essentials for your next weekend or business getaway into one bag.

The travel accessories included in your travel kit are the Urban Compression Cube and the Cube Plus. The Cube does a great job storing your delicates, while the Cube Plus stores your larger clothing items and towels. You also have 2 sides in each bag to help separate your dirty and clean clothing,

Need to pack an extra pair of shoes? No problem, because the Urban Shoes Sack will do a great job separating your shoes from your other items. One thing I do not like is having to pack shoes next to my clothing items. No one wants to smell like feet. :/

The Urban Laptop Bag can hold a laptop up to 15.6” in a comfortable, padded sleeve. You’ll appreciate the smaller compartments for all of your cables, power adapters, your wireless mouse, extra cables; even your cell phone and tablet. There is a detachable shoulder strap as well if you’d like to have more room in your Urban Day Bag.

The Urban Day Bag, and all the other bags mentioned above that will come in your Travel Kit, are made with a water-repellent nylon shell to protect your valuables from the rain. What I find the most fascinating is that each of the bags will fit into your Urban Day Bag. No longer do you have to worry about purchasing a luggage cart, or trying to stack your bags onto your wheelie-bag.

Don’t worry, if you don’t need the entire kit they are also sold separately at excellent, budget-friendly prices.

Doggie Duffel

Forget those days when the ziplock bag full of dog food busted, scattering kibble throughout your luggage or backpack. Yuck… Do you remember that smell?? If you travel with your pet, whether you’re taking them with you across the world, the country, or just to enjoy a hike in your hometown, you don’t want to be without the Doggie Duffel.

Now you can fit all of your food, water, and other travel accessories all into one place. You have two sizes to choose from: the small bag features 2 bowls that will hold up to 3 cups (750 ml) of food or water, while the large size can hold up to 6 cups (1500 ml).

The Doggie Duffel also has waterproof zippers to keep your pet food dry. The design is lightweight, made from high-grade nylon along with silicone materials. There is also an easy spout that allows you to pour your pet’s food with no problem – now you don’t have to dig around trying to find it. Not sure about how much to pour? Simply check the measuring bar on the outside to make sure pups getting exactly what they need.

Attach your water bottle to the clip on the outside of the bag, and you and your four-legged best friend are ready to em-“bark” 😀 on your next adventure!

Hideout Travel Pillow

This is not your ordinary inflatable travel pillow that you risk becoming light-headed from after spending minutes blowing it up. Instead, the Hideout Travel Pillow will do all the work for you, in about 5 seconds.

After opening the nozzle, you’ll see the memory foam core expand into a soft, supportive travel companion. Although, you can add air to further expand the memory foam to make it more firm and supportive if needed.

The pillowcase is quilted and made from microfiber, while the base is a durable Ripstop nylon.  For cleaning, you will simply just remove the pillowcase and toss it into the washing machine.

Hideout Travel Pillow does come with its own pouch for storage and packs into the size of a rain jacket.
