Welcome to our first-ever list of the Ultimate Travel Essentials, a definitive guide to the travel products you need to ensure your next trip is a success. First stop, in-flight essentials.
There is such a thing as a stress-free long-haul in economy — but experiencing it for yourself requires a carefully considered survival kit of stuff.

Some you know and love, or you’ve at least seen them on drugstore shelves. The classics endure for a reason, after all. Others might seem a little weird (we’ll admit, we weren’t sold on the funny-looking neck pillow at first glance either), but we’re pretty sure will win you over.
Read on to find your new essentials for 30,000 feet, and check out the full line-up of 2017’s Ultimate Travel Essentials.
