Outlets To Go Power Strip

I know someone who recently bought this and can’t stop extolling its virtues as a travel power strip. Compared to a regular sized power strip, it’s ridiculously tiny and the way the cord wraps around and plugs in simplifies cord management.

  • Four AC outlets to maximize the number of accessories that can be charged
  • Ultra compact design to fit into luggage and briefcases
  • Exclusive cord management to eliminate dangling power cords

Wheelie Flight Deck Luggage

In preparing for an upcoming snowboarding trip, I realized I needed to update/replace my carry-on luggage. What luck that this little guy was on sale. It’s a pretty compact size, yet it has such great organizational compartments that it seems you’d be able to fit in more somehow. My favorite part is the inside mesh zippered ‘halves’ of the interior; it’ll help with zippering it close when it’s stuffed full…looking forward to using it.

Volume-enhancing CRAM zones around the zippers allow for overstuffing when you pick up an extra magazine and snacks for the flight, and front pockets make it easy to access your wallet and boarding pass. Strap your daypack to the main compartment with the Hideaway Snakestack attachment. The Wheelie Flight Deck meets most airline carry-on restrictions, and a removable storage section lets you keep your essentials close at hand after you store the main bag in the overhead compartment. This product is available for US shipment only.

22.5 x 13.5 x 10in
