Lightweight Travel Products you must have in your travel carry-ons

  1. A set of travel compression cubes so you can pack as many outfits as you want and still fit everything into your carry-on — basically letting you have your cake and eat it too

Must-have traveling accessory. Best way to pack a suitcase! I’ll never go back to stuffing everything in on its own. These compartments held way more than I imagined and kept me organized. I will definitely add more to my collection. Makes a great gift for frequent travelers too!” —Lisa

Get them from Amazon for US&18.95  (available in ten styles and in packs of two, three, or six).

2. A shoe bag to compactly store shoes in your carry-on with minimal space and without getting street dirt all over your clean clothes. It’s designed to fit at least three pairs, but some reviewers say they fit up to five!

You can totally fit three pairs of shoes in this! (Size 6.5 female shoe, fit heels, wedges, and sandals.)

3.A 50-count set of laundry soap sheets for keeping your clothes ~fresh~ on your trip without having to deal with packing liquid detergent or exceeding your budget by using expensive hotel laundry services.

With these laundry soap sheets you will be able to wash my clothes in the sink — letting me pack just the right amount of clothes for all the different places I went.

4.A jewelry organizer

A jewelry organizer that’ll take up way less space than a jewelry box, and keep your necklaces and bracelets from getting so inexplicably tangled that they are actually unwearable to boot. Review -Best jewelry travel pouch ever. Plenty of room for all my travel jewelry needs. Half the size of previous pouches I have tried and holds more than any of them.”

Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in two sizes and nine colors).

5.Lightweight pill organizer

A sturdy, lightweight eight-compartment pill organizer for consolidating your medications and just-in-case medicines, because TBH their bulky bottles take up a lot of room — and opting to leave some of them at home is just not a good option.

Get a three-pack from Amazon for $7.97.

6.Wireless portable charger

A teeny tiny wireless portable charger that’ll take up as little room as possible so you can doom scroll, text, and listen to SZA’s new album to your ~heart’s content~ without worrying about your phone dying before your flight has even taken off or while you’re out and about on your trip. This would be great for travel, long work days, bad service areas (eats up battery faster), or older phones whose battery isn’t that great (this worked on his iPhone 7 and my iPhone XR). It may require you to remove your phone case, but that’s an easy accommodation. Highly recommend.

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in three colors).

7. A lightweight money belt

A lightweight money belt ’cause you should bring a belt, but it doesn’t need to be just any belt. This one will earn its keep with a hidden zip-up pocket so you can keep your cash close and safe, and your mind at ease. Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available for pant sizes 20″–50″ and in seven styles).


A lightweight, water-resistant Neutrogena SPF 50 face and body stick sunscreen that’s TSA- and carry-on friendly because it’s solid! Get it from Amazon for $10.97.

9. Stain removing Pen

A tried-and-true Tide stain-removing pen since you’ll be without your normal full-size stain-fighting prods while you’re on the go, so you’ll be very relieved you packed these little pens when you inevitably spill coffee or food on yourself on your trip. They may be little, but trust me, they pack a HUGE punch. This product works great and the three-pack is a good deal, whether you want to label each one for a specific use or share with members of the family. It is easy to use and doesn’t take long to dry. I keep one in my purse and of course it is a must-have when traveling.”

10. Hairbella

Hairbrella specializes in hats that protect hair from all kinds of weather. Hairbrella to protect your hair from rain and other stormy weather that’s small enough to fold up, taking up almost no room in your bag. It’s satin-lined, so it won’t dry out your hair or cause frizz once you’re ready to bare your tresses again. Works like a charm! So…of course the day I get my hair done, an unexpected torrential downpour occurs and I have NO umbrella. But…I DID have my Hairbrella in my bag! This was the 1st time I would get to try it out since I purchased it so I was REALLY hoping it would live up to its hype.

Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in five colors)

11.Trtl neck pillow

A blissfully comfy, ergonomic Trtl neck pillow that won’t take up any extra precious space in your bag like those big, puffy travel pillows do.

It also easily attaches to backpacks and luggage handles, weighs less than half a pound, and is machine washable!

12.Travel Gillette razor

A carry-on friendly travel Gillette razor so you can keep up with your personal care routine (if you do choose to shave!) without sacrificing space or quality.

Plus the heads are the same as a regular-sized razor, so you can keep using it when that one is worn out!”

13.Alleyoop 4-in-1 makeup pen

I love the concept of the Pen Pal from Alleyoop! It’s so nice and convenient to have a tool for brows, highlighter, bronzing, eyeliner, and lip liner all in one.  It’s a great tool for anyone looking to streamline their routine. It’s ideal to use for touch-ups come the end of the work day, or a subtle, minimalist way to apply makeup in the a.m. The brow pencil is particularly soft and pigmented, and filled in my eyebrows quickly. I just adore the ease of application of each product, and appreciate the universal, does-it-all-for-you concept. Plus, it saves me so much room in my already overflowing makeup bag!”

Get it from Amazon or Alleyoop for $25 (available in three shades).

15. Collapsible coffee cup

A reusable collapsible coffee cup so you can bring along a cup for your coffee without having to pack your bulky, TBH unwieldy thermos that is just not going to fit in your carry-on. It’s also microwave-safe! Note that the 12-ounce size does not include a straw, but both the 16-ounce and 24-ounce sizes do.

It’s leakproof and, when you’re all done, it collapses down teeny tiny and can be tossed back in your bag. Oh! And it comes with a straw, so all you iced coffee lovers can get in on the action, too.”
