Fly Right

Get packing for your next journey by air.


The FAA requires that travel-size products be 3 oz. or less and fit into a clear, 1-qt. zip-top plastic bag in order to be carried on an airplane. Anthony Logistics for Men brings you allergy-tested, airline-approved grooming products — six 2-oz. bottles — in the Grab+Go Travel Kit, $37 at Oliveaux (5422 Magazine St., 899-8120).

The guys at the airport security checkpoint may or may not think this one is cute, but priced at just $6, this bag made of durable nonwoven plastic fiber is hard to resist. Find this and other products by Xposed, the company that encourages you to "get in touch with your inner stuff," at Gentry (6047 Magazine St., 899-4223).

If you're not willing to invest in pink polka-dot luggage just to make your suitcase easier to distinguish from the countless other black bags on the baggage carousel, a novelty luggage tag may be your best bet. Find tags in various shapes and colors, $10 each, at Judy at the Rink (The Rink, 2727 Prytania St., 891-7018).
