Our Top 10 Men's Travel Essentials You Can Buy on Amazon
No matter what kind of trip you're taking, these are the top 10 items every man should have for traveling.
When you don't know where your travels will take you, it's important to have a stock of reliable, quality gear that works for business and leisure trips. We did the hard work for you by putting together a list of 10 travel essentials so you can spend more time planning the fun stuff and less time worrying about packing. After scouring Amazon, we found budget-friendly essentials that will withstand bumpy road trips, unexpected rain and hundreds of air travel miles. From a hydrating facial moisturizer to a leather toiletry bag, we rounded up the best items for men's travel bags.
Ditch the nylon gym bag and upgrade to a sophisticated full-grain leather overnight bag. This handsome top-handle bag is durable and multifunctional as it works for business travel or adventurous weekend getaways. A bonus shoe compartment makes it a cinch to separate dirty or stinky shoes from the rest of your travel gear. Little features like a shoulder strap, inner pockets and overhead bin-compatibility make this a perfect buy in our book.
It's never been easier for hackers to steal your personal data, like credit and debit card numbers. Protect yourself with a sleek RFID-blocking travel wallet. This no-fold wallet holds everything you need without feeling bulky, including up to six credit cards, an insurance card, a driver's license and $100 in mixed currency. It's an ideal find to keep cards and money safe on-the-go. Because of its slim design, you can keep it in your front or back pocket.
When traveling, it's ideal to pack as little as possible. We're big advocates of using multi-purpose products, like this age-defense moisturizer and aftershave. A blend of shea butter, aloe vera, green tea and hyaluronic acid detoxifies and rejuvenates skin, helping you put your best face forward. This moisturizer isn't greasy or overly creamy; it absorbs quickly into the skin leaving a smooth, matte finish. And because it's fragrance-free and made of natural, organic ingredients, it works for all skin types.
We've all experienced it – tangles of wires at the bottom of our travel bag in one big, messy bundle. Ugh. Avoid this situation with a genuine leather cord organizer. This one neatly stores a power bank, wall charger cube, mouse and USB drives in individual pockets and straps. The roll-up design makes it easy to pack and, when opened, easy to find what you need.
It's hard to impress in a wrinkled shirt. Fortunately, this small and mighty steam iron from Steamfast is here to save the day. This steam iron heats up quickly (in about 15 seconds), allowing you to quickly smooth out crumpled clothes or stiffen pleats and creases. Its dual voltage too, making it a perfect fit for overseas travelers.
When you desperately need to nap or focus on work, a pair of noise-canceling headphones is a must. Quickly and easily drown out unwanted noises thanks to this lightweight pair's Smart Listening technology which adapts to your environment by automatically adjusting the volume. With up to 30 hours of battery life and a comfortable ergonomic design, these headphones won't let you down in the middle of a long flight.
When you need to power up fast, this portable charger from INIU is in it to win it. With an average four-and-a-half star rating from 3,391 customers, this charger is trusted and loved by thousands of travelers. It's uber-compact, lightweight, high-speed and able to charge two devices at once, which is really everything we look for in a portable power bank.
You always need a dopp kit for traveling, so why not use the very best? This stylish dual-zipper bag is spacious, durable and able to hold everything you need, from deodorant to shaving cream. It's also waterproof, so unexpected spills won't ruin the leather or seep into your suitcase. We also love all of the interior pockets to keep toiletries organized.
Packing cubes have quickly gone from a trendy accessory to a classic essential. While they may not save space, we love how easy it is to unpack and repack when everything is neatly zipped away. We like how the individual cubes keep our suitcases organized and clothes wrinkle-free. This set is made out of lightweight, durable nylon which makes for a lighter bag but protected clothes. At just $17 for five cubes, this a travel essential you can't afford not to have.
Backpacks are ultra-convenient for transporting bulky items like laptops, but wouldn't you love one that charges your devices, too? Thanks to a built-in USB port, this backpack does just that, quickly charging tech on-the-go. We're also big fans of the anti-theft pockets, combination lock and rain cover that make this backpack an all-star travel companion. Padded shoulder straps make it more comfortable to carry around town, too.
