Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones The reviews are in for the latest version of Sony’s widely popular 1000x series wireless noise-canceling headphones, the WH-1000XM3. The consensus? It’s the best technology available. They’re soft and comfortable. The sound is off the charts. They’re easy to use—answer phone calls hands-free with a double tap or change tracks, adjust the volume and make calls by touching or swiping the panel. Among the features jet setters will love: 30 hours of battery life, ear cups that swivel to fit neatly in a compact carrying case, and an auxiliary cord with a two-prong adapter for in-flight entertainment systems. $349.99.

Lo & Sons The Rowledge Backpack Helen Lo and her two sons, a family of globetrotters, teamed up to design a travel bag after she couldn’t find one that wasn’t “too heavy, too frumpy, too tech-y, overpriced, overly designed, or pocketless black holes.” The attractive, affordable, lightweight bags are made of nylon, washed cotton canvas and organic cotton canvas and built to last. They feature thoughtfully placed pockets, compartments for accessories and an adjustable sleeve for sliding over suitcase handles. A recent addition is The Rowledge backpack. Made of nylon and leather, it features a 13-inch laptop compartment and can be converted to a tote by tucking the straps into a back pocket. $375.
