Traveling With Toiletries

Everyone aspires to pack light. As any seasoned traveler well knows, this is a process and with greater experience, the better you become. After countless years and miles of traveling, packing for one, and for a family, we have learned the advantages of packing with only a carry-on: bypassing check-in lines, avoiding baggage fees, being less encumbered by heavy bags, and never worrying over lost luggage. While other passengers anxiously await at the baggage claim for their luggage to be unceremoniously dropped onto a conveyor belt, we’re strolling past them with our Quartermaster by our side ready to embark on our adventure.

There are countless approaches to execute the perfectly packed luggage: folding methods, minimal accessories, using a mobile device to replace physical objects, traveling with bulkier items on your person, incorporating lightweight fabrics, etc. Always a believer in packing what we need, we have never skimped on a favorite product simply because the hotel may carry a variation it. Depending on your location the items that make it into your bag will vary. To ensure everything fits flawlessly, we employ a simple but often overlooked trick; travel size. Below you will find our three favorite travel-sized pieces that always fit into our carryon.


Professional hair care products have always made the difference between frizzy and brittle versus smooth and strong. Having tested the theory that hotel products will suffice, we can wholeheartedly say that this is not the case for everyone. Fortunately, the T3 Featherweight Compact Folding Dryer, is a petite, ultra-light, yet powerful dryer with all the features of a full-size dryer plus a folding handle ideal for storage or travel.
