Seasoned travelers are well-aware of how much of an impact long flights can have on the body and often carry a small arsenal to combat the draining fatigue that follows. Check out these travel accessories made for surviving a long flight:
Noise Cancelling Headphones
Welcome to the Holy Grail of long haul flight survival. Noise cancelling headphones such as the QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones reduce plane sounds, muffle crying babies and prevent talkative neighbors. Noise cancelling headphones can allow you to enjoy your flight in peace with the music you love.
Compression socks are a medical must-have for most flights. On a plane, you have very limited ability to move about freely and are stuck in a restricted position for most of the flight. This combination restricts blood vessels and may add to your risk of blood clots. There is evidence that suggests compression socks may prevent blood clots. These Trtle Flight Socks offer mild, graduated compression that helps reduce swelling and promotes blood circulation all while still being extremely comfortable.
Any traveler knows that airlines are not always well known for having lots of space. That’s why it is important to make as much of their limited space as they possibly can. With the spAIRTray Travel Shelf, they can increase their usable space by 33% on most commercial airlines. This easy to install shelf slides into the window shade track to give a tray for drinks, phones or glasses.
Being stuffed in an airplane with recycling air for hours is a great way to work up a sweat and since showers are not always readily available when needed, baby wipes are essential to keep feeling fresh and clean for long flights. Not only are baby wipes great for the skin, but wipes can be used for wiping down the seats and trays.
Comfort is key for getting rest and fighting fatigue on any long flight, but with limited space, travelers will often have to get creative. This footrest by Sleepy Ride gives feet a place to rest on high-quality, thick memory foam. This footrest allows passengers to feel comfortable and helps promote circulation in the legs.
