The Racktrap - packing it in for your next trip

  Earlier this morning I, for the first time, heard about this gadget for ladies that I thought is a great idea and would be awesome to have along on a trip. And it seems quite a few people agree as it has been written up about in a lot publications and has been discussed on several shows.

The Racktrap™ ( is an undetectable one-size-fits-all personal bra pocket that holds everyday essentials including license, cash, credit cards, and a photo ID, conveniently in a bra.

If you put stuff for "safe keeping" in your bra, this is a great product. Not that I would know first hand, though I recently got myself one of these things that is a bit similar, to keep valuables close to me. But it seems it would a great accessory for a trip to keep your money and other documents close while on a trip. It is a great solution for females who need to carry the essentials, but either don’t have pockets or a purse to store them in. It is an undetectable pocket that fits inside a sports bra while exercising, walking around town, on a tour or on a trail.
These smart little pockets are made of smooth fabric that nestles right inside the bra. It is hypoallergenic and fits well no matter the bra cup size.
They also could be useful when it’s time to hit up the club for a night of drinking and dancing. You would not have to worry about your bag and who’s going to keep an eye on it while on the dance floor.

Using the Racktrap™ is also a lot more sanitary than just tucking in the dollar bills straight into your bra, since as the research shows, US dollars have been found to have the most bacteria on them compared to other currencies.
Why good to have on a trip: 
- Designed to fit comfortably in any size or style bra
- Designed for women on the go
- Holds your small essentials in one safe place
- No need for purse or pockets
- Perfect for running errands, jogging, touring, trailing...

Did You Know?:
A study of American coins and currency revealed the presence of bacteria, including staphylococcus, E. coli, and klebsiella, on 18 percent of the coins and 7 percent of the bills.

From another frequent traveler: "My first aid kit and my Swiss Army knife (in checked bags): I've used the knife to open items, to eat, and for other useful functions..."

Another one takes along earplugs to tune out "loud, unhappy children." While that is great, I like to not only tune out but also tune into some enjoyable relaxing music. And that is where noise-canceling headphone come in handy as they do both and work great to get you through the flight, train ride, or just the wait for both.

Traveling in comfort

Here are some products that make traveling a lot more comfy:

TravelRest Ultimate Travel Pillow

This travel pillow has a cord that attaches to the back of your airline seat, and a loop to attach the other end to your seat belt. These features, plus the TravelRest's unique shape, allow you lean into it and get a better night of sleep than you thought possible on an airplane.

Neck Pillow

These come in many different shapes and sizes as well as colors. Most of these come in U shape, which supporst your head on all sides no matter where it lands.

First Class Sleeper

The First Class Sleeper helps you get the most comfort possible out of an airplane seat. It provides both lumbar and neck support, turning your coach seat into something more like an easy chair.

Noise cancelling headphones

I wrote about some of these in one of the earlier posts. These headphones offer the comfort of tunning out and relaxing to your favorite tunes during the trip.

Travel Blanket

While some airlines still provide blankets on the plane, it is become more and more rare. You can bring your own one instead to stay cozy and warm on flights or rides when traveling. There are even now blankets with arms, such as the NAP Travel Comfy, that keep you warm and let you type, turn pages and eat without removing it.
