Airband Mask “Science meets style” in this overear mask. The polyester and spandex outlayer makes it comfortable. An adjustable nose bar provides a snug fit. And the nanofiber antimicrobial built-in fabric filter offers added protection. Bill Nye The Science Guy has teamed up with the company on a collection of science-themed masks and will donate his proceeds to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington. Masks start at $12.99.


Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve A moisturizing hand cream can help counteract the effects of overusing hand sanitizer, an inevitability when traveling these days. This one by Kiehl’s lasts longer than your average moisturizer, doesn’t leave a greasy feeling, and has a subtle scent. Travel size is $16.


State of Escape Tote This tote is an ideal traveling companion in the time of COVID-19. Made of neoprene, it’s lightweight, washable and foldable.

Designed in Sydney, Australia, the company ships daily to the United States via DHL for a flat rate of around $18.


Touchland Power Mist Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer Touchland’s fast-absorbing, hydrating, spray-on hand sanitizer has become a cult favorite.

Comes in a TSA-friendly size and a variety of scents—citrus, aloe, watermelon, mint. $12 or bundle three for $30.00.


Truffle Clarity Clutch Level up your Ziploc bag with this eco-friendly, leather trimmed transparent clutch (pictured above). There is a lot to love. It’s attractive. It makes it easy to find essential carry-on items like hand sanitizer. It can help speed up your transit through a potentially crowded checkpoint since security agents can see the contents. The solvent-free TPU plastic clutch is reusable and TSA-approved for carry-on. Among the four sizes is an 8.5” by 11” – big enough for your tablet, chargers, and documents. Leather trim colors include blush, black, navy, dove gray and saddle. Starts at $40.
