7 Must-have Travel Essentials for Men

When it comes to travel, most men prefer a straight forward, hassle-free approach. Especially when it comes to packing. With that in mind, I’ve curated 7 of the best must-have travel essentials for men, complete with ingenious accessories and top rated gadgets!

Carry-on Bag + Personal Item

Only going away for the weekend and don’t feel like bringing an entire suitcase? Consider this garment duffel bag.

It unfolds into a garment bag, allowing you to store anything you wish to keep neat and unwrinkled. The main compartment functions as a normal duffel bag would, giving you plenty of space to pack all your other essential items.

Concerned your shoes will get your clothes dirty? Don’t worry, there’s a special shoe compartment at the bottom of the bag.

In addition, you have several extra pockets and compartments to store smaller items.

If you want to take multi-tasking to the next level, this neck pillow doubles as a carry-on/personal item.

Simply roll up your clothes, zip it up, and you’re good to go! Now you have a handy two-in-one neck pillow that also functions as luggage.

If you’re a minimalistic traveler, you could even use this item on its own and ditch the duffel bag altogether!

This is perfect for the man who prefers simplicity and the ability to be hands-free.


Having reliable, fast Wi-Fi is extremely important, but often a luxury when traveling. The GLocalMe portable hotspot has been a gamechanger, and an absolute must-have on your travel essentials for men checklist.

the GlocalMe G4 PRO is a touchscreen data Wi-Fi hotspot that allows you to connect up to 10 devices simultaneously to the Internet. It has global coverage of 140+ countries, and it doesn’t require any contract or SIM card, and is pocket sized for easy storage.

It won’t incur any roaming charges, and even has power bank functionality. This has been crucial for us during travel, especially in situations where we’ve been lost and need to look up directions, answer work emails, or charge a dying cellphone.

I cannot recommend this product enough!

This 3-in-1 charging station solves all your on the go charging needs. Charge your phone, watch, and earbuds at the same time.

Note: iPhone users only (I will update as soon as I find one that works for Android too).

This is perfect saving space when traveling, and folds up to be compact so you can easily fit it in your bag. No more carrying around multiple charging cables!

Next on the list of must-have travel essentials for men is this flexible flap phone stand.

This is perfect for when you want to watch a move on the plane. Simply bend the flap to your desired shape, set up your phone, and you’re good to go!

It’s ultra thin, so it won’t take up space in your carry-on like normal phone stands might, and makes for the ideal in-flight travel accessory.

This universal international travel adapter works in 150 different countries, and has 4 USB ports to meet all your plug-in needs.

There’s nothing more annoying than arriving to your hotel and realizing you don’t have the proper adapter. Even worse, lugging around multiple different adapters.

This will save you time, space, and money, which is why it’s on the list of must-have travel essentials for men.


These ultra lightweight travel sneakers absolutely need to be on your must-have travel essentials for men checklist.

They are water friendly, quick drying, slip resistant, and super comfortable. My fiancé has a pair of these, and they are his go-to shoes for any holiday we take.

They function as a regular sneaker would, but also work as water shoes! That’s right, you can wear them kayaking, hiking, and swimming!

No socks required, as they feature 3D dual cushioning for extra comfort. Bonus points for being sustainably designed!

Note: If you plan to wear them without socks, consider sizing down 1/2 a size or even a full size down.

I hope you enjoyed this curated list of the 7 Must-have Travel Essentials for Men! Hopefully your next trip will be smooth flying, and hassle free with these handy gadgets and accessories at your disposal.
