Gadgets for the long haul

Flying long haul is a lot more comfortable than it used to be, but thanks to modern technology there are ways of maximizing the limited space and making your journey even more comfortable. Here are a few ideas to help.

1MORE Triple Driver In-Ear Headphones 
When it comes to entertainment gadgets on long journeys, a good pair of headphones is an absolute must. These comfortable in-ear noise-canceling phones from Odoyo deliver great sound quality at a reasonable price. What more could a traveler ask for?


Eye mask
The problem with many eye masks is the irritation they can cause when pressed against your eyelids. The raised eye pads of the Bedtime Bliss Contoured Eye Mask solve that problem, while still blocking out all light, guaranteeing a better night’s sleep on a long flight. It comes in a handy storage pouch that also includes a pair of earplugs. 

Ca €14.00

Face cradle
It may look slightly ungainly, but the Face cradle has apparently been the best-selling travel pillow in crowdfunding history. Made of foam, it offers greater flexibility than a standard pillow with five different positions to choose from and comes with a strap that can be attached to the back of your seat, forming a cradle. If you prefer, it can also be used like a regular travel pillow too.


Foot hammock
For those travelers who suffer from swollen feet or poor blood circulation during a flight, this clever cradle or “foot hammock” from SmartTravel is just the ticket. Easy to fold up and pack, all you need to do is hang it around the tray table in front of you and then adjust it with straps according to your height.

Ca €18.00 

ThisWorks spray-on face moisturizer 
Looking after your complexion is never the easiest on a long flight, and it always helps to look fresh and vitalized on landing, regardless whether you are flying for business or pleasure. The spray-on moisturizer from ThisWorks not only refreshes you instantly, but also, you won’t need to use your hands to rub it in.
