The list author says: "Geeking out about better ways to travel, and travel hacks, is one of my very favorite things to do. I'm into vintage fashion and I am always trying to find better ways to travel and still be stylish.

"For longer trip I use this little one in conjunction with a larger hard sided checked bag. This baby fits under the seat in a pinch so I often carry it with a longer tote, which looks silly stacked, but works to cover all the bases."
"For anything too big for the plastic or mesh bags I use these. They are very light, washable, they make a great "dirty laundry" bag on a long trip and they work as shoe bags. Coincidentally I also use them for washing my laundry when I get home."
"I wear these at events but I also wear them on the plane (after security), particularly for international flights. I am always looking for a pen to fill out customs forms and such and having it around my neck is faster and it doesn't get lost."
