Ten Best travel products
Being away from home can be both fun and frustrating. Going to new places, whether near home or literally to other countries can be the best of times and the worst of times. No matter how well you prepare or think through what you need, something is always forgotten. Our company, Rickshaw Journey, specializes in providing for your travel journey. We have hundreds of products that will make life easier, more fun, and less stressful. This article focuses on ten best travel products and why they will make your life easier when you travel.
The first several products fit into the getting organized category. I personally fly a lot and have left many things behind on the airplane, in the lounge, and at the gate. Leaving something in the plane is a major hassle as it is considered a secure area, you cannot just walk back on the plane and grab what you left behind. Worse yet, you may find that 30 minutes later when you remember what you left behind, your plane is gone to another city and your gear is gone forever.
1. Leather roll-up
This is one of my favorite products of all time. It not only serves a practical purpose; it has an amazing touch and feel. This leather roll-up was specifically designed to keep your items from getting lost and to keep organized. The Velcro strap lets your ear buds and cables remain exactly the way you put them, not all rolled and knotted up like usual when you stuff them somewhere. The roll up has a natural pouch that can fit your cellphone or even your passport; maybe candy or business cards, receipts or memos, or even a slim charger. Enough of the practical, this leather roll-up was intentionally designed and made by the creative design team at Rickshaw Journey of the highest quality top grain leather that has a baby soft feel to it. You will be the envy of your seat mate when you pull out your leather roll-up not only for its practical value, but for the look and feel (hopefully they aren’t feeling your leather roll-up, but it they are reach out to us, we’d love to hear your story!).

Here is one review (5/5 stars) from Matthew M.:
I just received my leather roll up in the mail, it's great! Arrived fast, packaging was secure, and it's as I thought it would be. The leather is incredibly soft, sturdy design with a single piece of leather stitched on both sides. I'm a lover of functional leather; this roll up has a Velcro lined leather strap to secure headphones, pens or other smaller accessories, and the outer band allows plenty of room to add and tie down. Using this to organize headphones and other electronic cords and dongles for my leather bag. Incredible value at its price point and quality.
2. Cable organizer bag
While this bag does not have the look and feel of a leather roll-up, it has more space, a mesh (intentionally made for its see-through quality) zipper compartment and many pockets with a tight elastic band for storing your cords. The cable organizer bag can zip up and close for a more permanent storage solution. Organization is the name of the game. If you are a major techhie junkie in need of organization, this bag has your name on it!
3. GPS CaseThis case has a hard shell designed to protect your 2.5 inch external hard drive or a GPS navigation device. These items are often just tossed into a bag or suitcase and can be scratched (GPS) or damaged (hard drives). The case has mesh pocket inside for any cable and even a strap if needed or desired. This case isn’t just for travel, it is a good permanent storage for your GPS, hard drives, or other items when not in use to keep them protected from damage and scratching.
4. Backpacks and travel bags
Backpacks are the ultimate, amazing, handy travel bags. Everyone has a certain style; from the lightweight minimalist to the hardcore who brings everything plus, plus. As there are so many options depending on your need/desire, I am not recommending a specific product to consider. Rickshaw Journey has a good selection of backpacks and travel bags to your needs. When choosing a bag for travel, you should consider convenience, weight, and comfort according to your need. And if you’re like me, you have quite a few bags depending on the need and occasion. Whatever you do, travel smart and choose the best travel product including backpacks and travel bags that work for you!
5. Business shirt travel bag
The business shirt travel bag is a uniquely designed ‘fold style’ bag. While at first glance this business shirt travel bag seems a tad pricey, this product will cost you far more at Macy’s, Dillards, Nordstrums, Jos. A. Bank, Brooks Brothers, Johnston and Murphy or wherever else you may find them; if you can even find it available. The goal of the business shirt travel bag is to not have to iron again. You fold your shirt as you would normally, then tuck the flaps to protect the shirt. There is even a step by step picture diagram to help you keep your shirts looking like the business professional you are. Don’t be the wrinkly guy, be the guy with a business shirt travel bag, you will be glad you did.
6. Packing cubes
Our packing cubes are the famous Yugen brand and are sold in a pack of three for a very reasonable price. While you may find other off-brand packing cubes cheaper in a discount store, they will not be made from durable honeycomb with a strong rip stop configuration such as this three pack of Yugen cubes are. I always bring these on trips. I use them to store my travel pants, shirts, T-shirts and underwear, and sometimes even just to separate a specific day’s clothes in case I do not want to bring my entire suitcase in the hotel, house, or wherever I am going. You can maximize space, organize clothes and essentials to arrive neatly and without damage. The open mesh design with two-way easy pull zippers make it easy for security personal to examine without being in your ‘space’; another benefit of these packing cubes. The three cubes are size large (18x13x3 inches), medium (14x11x3 inches) and small (11.5x7x2); all pretty decent sizes. Make packing for your next trip hassle-free.
7. Travel Adaptor
If you are traveling internationally, why not just get a universal plug adaptor? Rickshaw Journey’s adaptor is a universal AC interchangeable power plug that will work worldwide regardless of the currency configuration. Yes, many hotels will provide these for you, but don’t get stuck without the needed power.
8. Travel pouch
Travel pouches come in many sizes and shapes. The goal is to keep your valuables close to you, safe and secure. You can use it for money, ID, passport, credit cards and other valuables. It has two zipper pockets to secure your valuables and can be used on your waist or attached to your bag. The travel pouch has an adjustable elastic waist strap with cool-mac backing which is patented to be comfortable against your skin as well as fast drying and ultra-absorbent against perspiration. It is 10x 5 inches and ultra-lightweight; it is not your father’s old-fashioned fanny pack! This travel pouch is meant be light, easy, and secure your important documents and valuables.
9. Key ring wallet
This Rickshaw Journey-branded and designed wallet is made in India of crunch leather (hard yet classy old feel) and serves multiple purposes. It is perfect for holding the bare essentials such as driver’s license, cash, a couple credit cards and some business cards. But wait, there’s more, and this is what I really like about this wallet! It has a key ring to put a few keys. Here is how I use my Rickshaw Journey key ring wallet: My son typically drives me to the airport in my truck and I leave him my keys. I bring my key ring wallet and have a spare car key and spare house key as well as my Lounge and priority cards as well as my business cards and a spare twenty-dollar bill (always check to make sure nobody took your spare money!). I don’t have to worry about losing my main set of keys or being stuck without a house key; besides who wants to carry extra metal that is a pain in travel and could get lost. When we designed this wallet, we wanted a hard-feel from quality leather and intentionally chose the reddish-brown color – For the quality of craftsmanship and leather it is cheap, awesome and waiting for you to get yours!
10. Foot massager
Ok this is a stretch to call this a best travel product, but every list has something unique and edgy and this is it! A part of our philosophy at Rickshaw Journey is that we have many products that you may not need, but you certainly want. Yes, a cable organizer is cheaper and holds more than a leather roll-up, but when you make a roll-up organizer of top grain leather with a leather strap, who wouldn’t want one! And who doesn’t like a foot massage? While my favorite place to get a foot massage is in Thailand by a Thai person, the Spa Pleasures brand manual foot massager is an awesome, nicely packaged foot massager that you can bring with you when you travel or keep at your desk for a comforting rub on your feet.
