What’s in my bag?

After 6 or so What’s in my bag? posts, you’d think I won’t have space anymore in my bags. As the years pass, my travel style continues to change, and so does my packing style. There are new products to try and added to the list, and there are products that are taken out of the list. Here’s some more that made the cut.

iBattz Mojo Removable Power Card Wallet
This small device has enough power to fully charge my HTC Chacha or my iPod touch. Considering that using 3G and wi-fi can drain your gadgets faster, this is great to have around if you’re headed somewhere without electricity.

Charging Chacha

It’s also quite handy to have even if you’re not traveling. This is a staple in my bag, even if I’m just going to hang out with friends in the city.

iBattz is distributed in the Philippines by Digits Trading.

I’ve written before how I use these huge ziplock bags for compressing my clothes so that they fit inside my backpack. They’re really handy, and Baguum made it easier by having this small device that sucks out the air from the bag, for better compression.

Oh my winter clothes. When will I wear you again?

That was my biggest gripe with the regular zip-top bags, since we don’t have a vacuum cleaner at home. It does the job well, and thanks to it, I was able to fit my clothes inside my luggage after going overboard shopping in Singapore last July. My only gripe with it is that it was kinda hard to screw the device and the opening in the bag. Otherwise, it’s really handy to have. Oh, and it’s not just for traveling. It’s also great for storing winter clothes when you get back to hot, humid Manila.

Flight001 Space Pak Underwear
If you’re iffy about using plastic, here’s an alternative: packing cubes. Keeps your luggage organized, and contained in a (relatively) small size.

Loooove the yellow

What sets Flight001’s packing cubes from the other brands in the market is the separate space for dirty laundry on the other side. Haven’t been able to use this yet, but I’m hoping to get to use it soon! *crosses fingers*

Flight001 Seat Pak
There are times when you’re on a plane and you have the misfortune to be seated next to a person who just can’t seem to sit still: standing up to get something from the overhead bin, twisting in their seat to reach for something in their bag under the seat in front. That’s me.

Flight 001 Seat Pak
That’s a notebook that says “Bitch Passport” in the cover. I received two from two different friends on two different occasions. I GET THE HINT.

That’s why I couldn’t resist and broke my vow to not shop when I saw this at the newly opened Flight001 store at BHS Central. It’s basically multi-pocket organizer that you can hang in front of you inside the plane. Keep your passport, tickets, pens, IDs, keys, gadgets, toiletries, all in one pouch. Just don’t forget to bring it with you when you disembark.

  1. When it comes with packing, I have to hand it to my husband. I’m buying an ibatzz or a similar one on our trip next week. :D Packing cubes are on my wishlist too.

    I seriously need one of those chargers. Probably going to add that on my X-mas wish list. LOL. You don’t realize how convenient chargers are until you look at your phone’s battery and wish you were 1. in the car charging your stuff 2. near an outlet 3. near an outlet AND you’ve got your phone charger with you (most people I know don’t carry one, anyway).

    When Sandy came by and knocked out our power for a good bit, I think that charger would’ve been super handy. ;)

    BITCH passport…LMAO! (I had to do a double take on that)

  4. Hi Nina! Can you use regular zip lock bags with the Baguum or do you need to buy the bags that they sell? Thanks :)
