There's nothing quite like getting on a long flight and realizing you'll have to listen to a shrieking toddler for eight hours because you forgot earplugs or noise-canceling headphones. Prepare for anything with a well-packed carry-on and make your long flight an easy one!


Reusable water bottle - Stay hydrated and prevent jet lag

Scarf - A light scarf can double as a light blanket on chilly flights.

Eye drops - Just in case a flight literally becomes a red-eye flight, eye drops will come in handy.

Compression socks - keep that circulation going so you can hit the ground running!

Dental picks - Keep food out of your teeth even when you can't get to a restroom or your packed-away toothbrush and toothpaste is out of reach.

Portable Footrest - relieve fatigue and make even those economy seats feel roomier (it attaches right to the seat and is adjustable!).

Travel anti-theft wallet - Keep your important travel documents in one place.

Inflatable travel footrest - great for adults and perfect for traveling with kids, since they can be adapted to be a makeshift bed for little ones.

Charger and/or iPhone splitter - Don't let low battery anxiety ruin your flight. The splitter will allow you to keep charging while listening to music or watching videos on your phone or ipad.
