Insiders Road Test: 5 Must-Pack Travel Items

Blog Post created by communitymanagers on Jun 20, 2016

How do you get the most out of your trip? By organizing what goes in — in your backpack, carryon and suitcase, that is. TownePlace Suites® wanted to get seasoned travelers’ opinion on top gear, so they asked Insiders who’d recently stayed to rate items for TownePlace Suites’ Ultimate Travel Product Search.

Here’s a preview of the items that got the thumbs up, all available at The Container Store:

  • Hopi Touring Bag by reisenthel — fashionable, light, roomy
  • Eagle Creek Specter Pack-It Compression Set — holds more in less space
  • JetBag Bottle Protector — protects wine to pour at home, not over your airplane seat
  • Stackers Cosmetic & Jewelry Case — upper compartment corrals cosmetics, lower section pampers jewelry
  • Seat Pak Organizer — latches on your tray table to keep compartments in reach

Our thanks to the Insiders who picked out the top performers!
