Bose QuietComfort 25
No matter how you cut it, Bose has always been a polarizing brand, but their noise canceling headphones still rank amongst the best on the market and the latest QuietComfort 25 ($299) continues to impress brand loyalists and haters alike.
The DSPTCH Waist Bag
Don't call it a fanny pack. DSPTCH's Waist Bag ($92) keeps you from overdoing it with a streamlined shoulder pack to carry all your daily essentials. If you need a little more room, they've also got their lightweight Shoulder Bag ($134) and Bookpack ($165) styles that still allow you to pack light in a smaller form factor.
Also check out their innovative Dopp Kitt ($64) that opens to reveal a removable valet tray.
We can tell you ten must-haves from MUJI's travel section, but one favorite we can't get enough of is their Aluminum Atomizer ($10). The atomizer can hold up to 4.8ML of cologne so you can pack a couple of your favorite scents and keep it in your carry-on.
A GMT is simply a no brainer for anyone who frequently changes time zones and though the Apple Watch may deliver an unlimited amount of functionality beyond a simple GMT hand, nothing beats the look and feel of a good analog timepiece. Shinola's new Rambler ($750-$850) is one travel watch that's got our attention with its bold case and that now signature Shinola styling.
Garrett Leight Van Buren Sunglasses
Garrett Leight hit it out of the park with the minimalist silhouette of the Van Buren ($340). Making it a folding sunglass however, that's a grand slam. The single, almos floating brow bar is simple, but bold and an instant classic that is sure to stand the test of time.
The Persol 9714S ($294-$347) is another good travel option that takes the classic shape of the 714 folding sunglasses and modernizes it with a lighter design and a thinner profile.
Mophie Powerstation Plus
If you've got a loaded itinerary then you'll want to pack a solid battery to keep your devices charged up on your journeys. Mophie's Powerstation Plus ($79-$149) not only packs an extra battery, but it also has both the USB cable and a Lightning (or MicroUSB) cable integrated so you won't have a mess of cables to deal with.
So you're torn between bringing a separate camera or just using your phone? With Moment's add-on lenses ($100), you can simply just improve upon what's already in your pocket. They've got two high-quality lens options that include a telephoto and a wide-angle, just what you need for travel.
Also check out the upcoming Moment Case ($79), a fully-engineered case that turns your iPhone into a full-on camera with a dedicated, multi-functional two-stage shutter button.
