For on-the-go readiness, even when flying, check out this Toolcard Pro from Lever Gear, a 40-item stainless steel multi-tool that includes wrenches, a box cutter, a bottle opener, and much more. Better yet, it’s shaped like a credit card so that it can fit in your wallet so you don’t have to worry about leaving it behind.

There’s tons of storage on the inside, organized with pockets, loops, and zippered compartments.

Brio Blackout Beardscape V1
Brio’s Blackout Beardscape is simply the best travel beard trimmer for its incredibly long battery life, its versatility no matter what beard type you have, its ceramic blades which are 4x harder than steel, and adjustable speed that can preserve power. Not to mention, it features a quiet operation perfect for not disturbing others in small hotel rooms.
Dango P02 Pioneer Travel Wallet
Why not keep your wallet right where you can see it when rushing around the terminal? Dango has the perfect all-in-one travel solution with the P02 Pioneer Travel Wallet, which weighs just 3.5oz and can fit up to 8 cars, 3 passports, a small notepad, a checkbook, some folded bills, and a pen, which is accessible even when the wallet is closed. There’s also a shoulder strap option that feels like you’re wearing a seatbelt.
Tactile Turn Stainless Steel Bolt Action Pen
Long travel means plenty of time to think and work. Get yourself a top-tier writing utensil that can endure many long journeys with you.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

Rimowa Watch Case
You may know Rimowa as the iconic luggage brand known for its grooved aluminum suitcases. Well, the company put its hard-sided expertise on a discreet-looking black watch case. If you’ve spent all that money on timepieces, why not keep them protected and hidden in transit? Sporting a minimalist design, the box holds 3 watches, with cushions on the inside to keep them from jostling around.
