Personally tested by our staff, this list includes travel necessities we won’t leave home without!

Hook and Albert Weekender


Stylish, functional and the quintessential gift for any mobile man. Perfect for weddings, weekend excursions or short business trips.






Bose QC35 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones


A must have for any road warrior or red-eye bound globetrotter. Drowned out ambient noise with premium audio performance.







Iridium Extreme Satellite Phone


For the extreme traveler…think Antarctica, Africa, remote islands and extreme north and south; anywhere you can’t get a cell phone signal. In an emergency situation, you only have to need it once to make it worth its weight in gold.





Black Diamond Storm Headlamp


Ideal for outdoorsman and athletes alike, this premier headlamp includes red and green LEDs night vision modes, dimming and strobe settings. It also comes in handy in any power outage or emergency.





Amazon Fire Tablet, 7″ Display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB


Inexpensive, durable and integrated. Whether you’re on a subway or at 40,000 feet, having backup entertainment (as well as a fully functions tablet) is indispensable. Given you can now download, and temporarily store, movies and series from Amazon and Netflix, this is a no brainier.
