Lifestyle Travel Briefcase the July/August 2019 issue

Carry on, Carry-ons

Our picks for summer 2019 travel
By Carrie Williamson Posted on July 12, 2019


Refilling TSA-approved containers of your favorite grooming products before a trip—or even finding containers you like—can be tedious and time consuming. Eliminate this packing task with Caileur’s travel-size products for hair, body and face from exclusive brands like Malin+Goetz. Choose from a variety of inflight travel sets, such as Jet Set for Him, or create your own. With summer vacation season in full swing (and suntan lotion being particularly precarious to pack), the special edition Poolside Essentials Set with water resistant Soleil Toujours Organic Sheer Mist (SPF 30), Flaunt Facial Wipes, and Hampton Sun SPF Lip Balm is timely. Products arrive in a reusable custom travel bag designed to prevent leaks, so you can just drop it in your carry-on and head to the airport.


Mark & Graham
Mark & Graham’s Commute Clutch is not only stylish but a marvelous way to keep the small things you need when flying organized. Unzip the imported leather clutch to reveal an interior of grosgrain with slots for credit cards, leather tabs to snap around cords and cables, a large zippered pouch for your passport and cash, and open pockets of various sizes for your phone, charger and keys. Now available in new summer colors like Sky Blue, Charged Pink, and Tennis Green, which can be embossed with a gold foil monogram. $125


There’s a reason Paravel’s Fold-Up Bag was one of “Oprah’s Favorite Things” in 2018. It’s the ideal traveling companion. It can be your gym bag while you’re on the road. You can slide it over the handles of your rollaboard as a personal item. And you can tote home the spoils of a shopping spree. Made of ultra lightweight nylon material, the sturdy 18-by-11-by-11.5-inch bag folds down to a pouch the size of an iPad, so it won’t add weight or take up space in your carry-on. The two-way zipper ensures easy access, and interior pockets keep your valuables safe. Attractive and reasonably priced at $65, the bag comes in Safari Green, Scuba Navy, Bebop Red and Domino Black and can be personalized with three embroidered letters for $15.
