Embarrassing Travel Gear?

Posted on: October 22, 2010

I came across this blog post, entitled “The Most Embarrassing Travel Gear”.  I agree that most of these quirky things serve a practical purpose.  However, a few funny thoughts came to mind as I was reading:

– The Tugo: I don’t know if I’d rather put up with my bottle of water potentially falling out while I’m running through the airport dodging those beeping porters’ go-karts, or if I’d rather wear the weight on a strap around my neck.  Neither appeals to me.

– PlaneSheets: Kudos to the inventor for thinking of the germophobics of the world, but I wonder how easy it is to actually get this thing on the seat properly, given the space constraints of regular coach seats and the limited time you usually have before the flight attendants start asking everyone to take their seats.  This reminds me of how I once struggled to put a $200 cover on my sofa…..took forever and ended up not fitting right, even though the dimensions should have been perfect!

– Snazzy Napper: Sure hope the nose holes are intended to keep travelers alive!!

– SkyRest: Looks like it could be comfortable, but in this age of “carry on everything you can,” I think travelers would really have to love it to bother lugging this big thing onboard!

– XShot: I like this idea a lot, but I agree that I won’t be sticking my nice digital camera up in the air like that.  Can you imagine using this gadget above the trough at the salmon hatchery in Juneau?  The fish won’t have any use for your gift of a camera!
