Continuing in the vein of my last post covering the range of useful travel accessories we offer here at Atlanta Luggage, I’d like to fill you in on some of the new arrivals at our store that are extra useful for summer and early fall travel in particular or because they’re just plain cool.
Grand Trunk Parasheet – Single
Parasheet – Single by Grand Trunk
The Parasheet is perfect for a day at the beach, a picnic in the park or outdoor music festivals. The reason why it’s better than a towel or a quilt has to do with its super durable, machine-washable, parachute nylon construction that air dries quickly, is mildew resistant and immediately sheds dirt and sand instead of trapping it. The Parasheet comes in fun bright colors and is simple to tote as it weighs very little and fits in a small stuff sack. Despite its light weight, the Parasheet won’t fly away on you because it has corner sand pockets and stake down loops to hold it in place.
Go Travel Aqua Fan
Aqua Fan by Go Travel
Fill this lightweight, battery-operated, portable handheld fan with water and keep yourself refreshed with a misty breeze. Great for working in the yard, traveling in hot places, standing in lines at amusement parks and more.
Talus Smooth Trip Foldable Water Bottle
Foldable Water Bottle by Talus Smooth Trip
This isn’t just any ordinary water bottle. It’s BPA free, includes a carbiner for attaching to your belt, purse, backpack, etc and is super lightweight. This item folds up when not in use or with lower water levels so it’s easy to pack as compared to a hard water bottle. This foldable water bottle is especially perfect for camping and backpacking trips.
Passage2 Pop Ups Moist Towelettes
Pop Ups Moist Towelettes by Passage 2
Pop Ups come in a bag of 50 and only take a tablespoon of water to expand making them perfect for travel because of their compact size. Slip a few in your purse or travel bag for a quick refresher after a long flight. Another great feature that makes Pop Ups great for outdoor adventures in particular is that they’re 100% biodegradable.
Go-Girl GoGirl Single Tube
Go Girl Single Tube
Okay, don’t laugh, this item is actually not a gag gift. Yes, now ladies can stand while doing their business which makes urinating in the woods, in a boat, dirty restrooms, sporting events, etc. a quick, clean and convenient operation. The Go Girl is made from flexible, germ-resistant medical grade silicone which is molded in a no-splatter design making aiming quite easy. It’s also easy to clean and reuse and comes in a carrying tube that easily fits in your pocket, purse or glove compartment. While the idea of standing while peeing might not be your cup of tea, you just might find yourself wishing you had a GoGirl when traveling in a third world country where the toilet is actually hole in the ground or you have to go in the middle of the night during a camping trip.
Cabeau Travel Evolution Pillow with Bag
Evolution Pillow with Bag by Cabeau Travel
One of our top selling travel pillows, the Evolution Pillow is the ultimate in travel comfort. Unlike the usual air filled or bean filled neck rest, this pillow is made with high IQ memory foam for supreme comfort. This pillow is designed with lateral head stabilization supports so no more cricks in your neck and a media pouch on the size to hold your mp3 player or cell phone for hands-free listening. To ensure stability there is a duplex side-lock toggle that will hold the pillow in place. It may look bulky but in fact cinches up to 1/4 its size to fit in the included small travel bag.
Travelon Waterproof Tablet Pouch
Waterproof Tablet Pouch / Clear View Waterproof Pouch by Travelon
Ever want to use your electronics at the pool or beach but are too worried about them getting wet or dirty? Now you don’t have to worry about getting splashed and sandy, with these waterproof electronics pouches – one larger size for tablets, the other for smart phones, mp3 players and digital cameras. The pouches have an easy, Self-Seal+ closure that is air and water tight and patented static cling top security with hook and loop closure. Despite what you may think, these pouches still allow you to use your touch screen with full functionality and include a foam insert to help the pouch float on top of the water so you can’t lose it.
Travelon Set of 2 Leak Proof Pouches
Set of 2 Leak Proof Pouches by Travelon
In the same vein as the electronics pouches, comes the wine bottle pouch which is triple-sealed with 3 zip-lock style closures to be completely waterproof. While this product isn’t intended to keep bottles from breaking, it will protect them some inside your luggage while also protecting your valuables from possible spills. When not in use, these pouches are easy to roll up and fit in a small pocket. These leak-proof pouches are great not only for travel but for packing inside coolers or the car for your beach parties, picnics and camping trips.

Use it to cool off up to 22 degrees cooler than the current temperature. This towel is reusable, machine-washable and doesn’t need drying. In fact, it has anti-microbial properties to keep it from growing moldy or mildewy.

Exofficio Men’s Give-N-Go Boxer Brief
ExOfficio Underwear and T-shirts
The best way to stay cool while traveling is to dress cool, that is, wear your ExOfficio underwear. It’s made of highly breathable stretch diamond-weave mesh fabric that is quick drying and treated with Aegis® Microbe Shield™ to reduce odor-causing bacteria. Besides being an obvious choice for wicking away sweat and the stink caused by it, these undergarments are wonderful for long trips without washing machines or for simply packing light. Available in men’s and women’s styles, ExOfficio is a must for travel enthusiasts.
