We might all be looking at staying put for the next couple of months due to the Corona Virus outbreak, but inevitably things will work there way back to normal. So when that day comes (sooner, hopefully rather than later), here are some exceptional items to make your journey more comfortable and efficient.

Dr. Segals Compression Socks - Can socks make a difference in travel? Well, these are not any ordinary socks; these are compression socks designed to reduce fatigue, increase circulation, and make hours on your ass a lot more manageable. We tested these on a five-hour flight to Miami and noticed a significant reduction in antsy leg syndrome and overall comfort. When worn with jeans, you can keep them camouflaged, even though they do offer some cool new patterns and colors, rocking these with shorts is a bit. MSRP $29.99 | More Here -

SOL Republic Air+ - If you are looking for some true wireless earbuds that are good for taking calls, firing off inquiries to Siri, listening to music, and just quieting things down - the Air + will do the trick. SOL Republic comes correct with an IPX4 rating (sweat/rainproof), 8 hrs of listening time, 2x charge ups with the case, and noise-canceling functionality. These buds will go the distance, sound great, and make plane rides a LOT more bearable. MSRP $199 | More Here

Ekster Smart Wallet - Ok, this is a dream come true for all of you who have a "Costanza" Wallet and also tend to lose it. The brilliant designers at Ekster have designed a wallet that you can track with your phone if you lose it (via an add on tracking device) as well as helping you lean up. The wallet features a compartment that fits up to five cards and is accessed by pushing a lever to pop them out, along with a small internal card pocket and an elastic band you can fit in everything you need and lose the rest. A wallet that won't bloat is easy to find and looks stellar - let's call this a done deal.
