Men’s Carry-on Essentials

Time to travel (finally) in style.

The world is slowly adjusting to the new normal of facemasks, social distancing, and vaccine passports. And whilst we are nowhere near recovered, there is a sense of post-pandemic optimism. One that involves booking flights and finally getting to use your (real) passport once again. So, with travel in our midst, we have curated a list of carry-on essentials that are equally lux as they are practical. From plane friendly toiletries to compact entertainment, explore our picks below.

Carry-on luggage should always be a combination of utility and style. Depending on whether you travel light or heavy we have selected a bag for you.

Take the FLOYD Hardshell cabin suitcase in Miami blue for ease of transport and optimal space on your next vacation. We suggest the Automobili Lamborghini Logo Patch Luggage Bag for a more compact option. This top handled bag also has detachable shoulder straps to keep your hands free on your journey.

Another hands-free option is the TROUBADOUR Ridge faux leather recycled-fibre backpack. Its external compartments allow you to keep important documents and items within arm’s reach, which is the perfect feature for an efficient traveller.

For those who are after an option that is compatible with any adventure, there is the Troubadour
Basecamp rucksack. This backpack is designed for all activities from hiking to camping and rolls down to become a compact version. Its large body and opening also optimise its capacity allowing for maximum storage whilst travelling.

Wherever your travels take you, we have chosen a wide variety of bags to keep you organised and ready for your journey. Shop the edit below.

Travelling and any change of environment can wreak havoc on our skin barrier. So, we have selected an array of products that will keep your skin protected and hydrated, allowing you to enjoy your travels looking your best.

Our first suggestion is the Chantecaille Pure Rosewater. This powerhouse product boasts Rose De Mai and Volcanic Well Water to help revive a fatigued complexion. Spritz your face throughout any flight or journey to rejuvenate and refresh. Its compact size of 25ml also means it is flight friendly and can be taken with you anywhere.

Flight cabins are notoriously drying on the body, and this is where Dr. Organic Rose Otto Skin Lotion steps in. Made using organic Rose Otto Oil and bioactive plant extract, this hydrating product can be applied to any part of the body that needs some extra TLC.

Another addition to your flight kit essentials should be Dr Paw Paw Original Lip Balm. There’s nothing worse than dry lips, especially having to endure them on a long hall flight. Having this powerful balm in your bag will ensure your lips are always protected and hydrated.

Whilst travelling is exciting and fun, the long-haul flights and journeys can often be needlessly boring. This is where we have selected some essential additions to your carry-on kit to combat any tedious times.

Start off with the Marshall MID ANC Noise-Cancelling Headphones to listen to playlists in peace. The noise-cancelling technology is also the perfect feature for in-flight movies and entertainment.

Opt for the Kreafunk aBEAN Bluetooth in-Ear Headphones in Dusky Pink for a more compact version of personalised headphones. These tiny tech accessories offer 20 hours of playback time, allowing you to get through countless movies and songs throughout your journey.

For those who are excited to use travel as a time to get away from technology, we would suggest Bespoke A6 Two Way Journal Butter Leather in Tan. This luxurious book is the perfect motivation to pick up a pen and start recording your memories of travel and adventure.

For those after some more traditional entertainment, take a pack of Printwork Playing Cards. This classic game will have the whole family off their screens and back to old-school games that will help travel time pass by seamlessly.

Comfort is key when it comes to travel. Whether you’re embarking on a 12-hour flight or a two-hour drive, the way to make the journey enjoyable is to opt for items of comfort.

The GLOBITE Indulgence Faux Fur Neck Pillow would be our first choice, ensuring you drift off to sleep and arrive at your destination refreshed.

The Tired ZZZ Silk Eye Mask is another item that will complement comfortable sleep. Blocking out any bright lights of your journey and inducing deep, restorative sleep.

We would also suggest having items of clothing that are comfortable and sleep-friendly. T ESSENTIALS Black Fleece Lounge Pants are just that with their drawstring waistband that will grow with you after any in-flight meals.

A hooded sweatshirt like the one from POLO RALPH LAUREN is another great option for travel. Block out any cold drafts by simply hiding beneath your hood, ensuring blissful temperature control.

Slippers are an underrated addition to any travel kit, but their functionality is unprecedented as they allow you to make any mid-flight venture to the bathroom quick and easy. The BEN SHERMAN Country Club Mule Slippers feature a cushioned footbed and faux fur lining for added comfort.
