First Class: Best New Luxury Travel Accessories

Everyone has a favorite travel accessory, but what items do first-class travelers bring along? Far from the oft seen inflatable neck pillows and plastic refillable bottles, luxury travel accessories marry usefulness with style for every traveler looking to display airport high fashion.

  1. Crosskase Solar 15 Backpack
    Designed to harness the power of the sun, this backpack is more than just a carry-on, it is a carry-on that can charge your essential devices while you are out and about. It is extremely lightweight and can fit up to a 15.6 inch laptop. Aside from perfect laptop portability, it comes with almost a square foot of storage space and is made of water repellent nylon. Designers even gave it a back that maximizes airflow to keep you cool on your trek. Perfect for charging items when there is no plug available, this is the next generation of carry-on.
  2. Globe-trotter Safari Trolley Case
    While some may think that luggage is only luggage, others would disagree. From a company founded in 1897 comes a bag reminiscent of jungle safaris and ships setting sail during the age of colonialism. Used by Sir Winston Churchill and Queen Elizabeth II, the case comes straight from a company that knows what separates first class and economy. It can be carried by the handle or wheeled and measures 21 by 15 by 7 inches, perfect for those shorter vacations.
  3. SeV Women's Trench Coat
    A very useful item for the traveling woman, this trench coat is lightweight, water resistant, breathable, and stain resistant. Apart from the external benefits, there are specialized pockets sewn on the inside that range in size and can hold anything from a full-sized tablet to keys and makeup. There are even pocket warmers and magnetic closures. While it may become cumbersome with so many items, it is one of the best female options available that provide internal pockets.
  4. Doettling: Guardian
    Designed for travel and maximum security, this tube is the world's first. It is a cylinder with enough space to hold six wrist watches, jewelry, cash and important documents. Underneath the leather exterior is a metal compound that resists tools and damage from sledgehammers. The top is protected with a lock that can only be opened with a three digit code. Its 14.5 inch long body even comes equipped with a GPS transmitter. While not practical for the average traveler, it certainly provides security for the big ticket items.
  5. Griffin PowerDock 5
    For the more technically adept traveler, this dock prevents clutter by holding up to 5 devices with the need for only one plug. Taking up only as much space as in iPad, each dock comes with a frosted backrest and is optimized for iOS devices though others have worked as well. Because of different charging requirements across machines, the non-iOS devices may take longer to charge. This device also helps keep your electronics organized on vacation, making sure nothing is lost or set to the side and forgotten.
