Travel Gadgets: Wacky, Weird, or Wonderful?

There are lots of travel products available, all designed to solve a specific problem. We’ve selected a few of the most remarkable here. What do you think?

“Aptly named, the Stash from Reef is more than just a sandal. The heel opens up to stow your secret treasures, while the stylish leather-like upper and generously padded footbed will have you looking good and feeling better.”

It seems that there are two versions of these sandals out there. The earlier version is a little drawer that you pull out. The newer (more available) version is shown here, where you pull the heel up to access the compartment. The drawer idea seems more durable, because you’d think that in time the velcro would lose its effectiveness. But there could certainly be situations where these sandals would come in quite handy.

    Brief Safe: Retail $24.99, Sale $19.99.

“The “Brief Safe” is an innovative diversion safe that can secure your cash, documents, and other small valuables from inquisitive eyes and thieving hands, both at home and when you’re traveling. Items can be hidden right under their noses with these specially-designed briefs which contain a fly-accessed 4″ x 10″ secret compartment with Velcro closure and “special markings” on the lower rear portion.”

Yes, this is totally gross. But honestly, it make a whole lot of sense. NO ONE will mess with your  stuff. Enough said.

    Snazzynapper: Original $14.99, XL $24.99.

“Use your Snazzy Napper™ and get your much needed sleep anywhere, anytime! It’s like privacy in a bag.”

The problem it tries to solve is definitely there, but for some reason we’re finding the nose hole quite amusing. It is interesting that planes are really the only place where it is acceptable and commonplace to get your zzz’s in public. And if you really need to sleep but have difficulty, this gadget could potentially really help block out light and distractions, as well as add the comfort of knowing that if you are drooling with your mouth open, no one will be the wiser. At least the print shows it doesn’t take itself too seriously.

So what do you think about these products? Useful or useless? What other products out there make you wonder?

The are lots of sanitary products for the traveler out there; stay tuned for a post with a hygiene theme!
