Frequent fliers John Sencion and Brad John came up with the idea for Flight 001 during a 1998 flight between NYC and Paris. Pronounced "flight one," Flight 001 serves the needs of travelers who, like Sencion and John, like their jetsetting accessories to be stylish, affordable, and, most importantly, <i>useful</i>. The Flight 001 aesthetic is retro, but the functionality — from handsome three-ounce toiletry containers and laundry bags designed for wetsuits — is ultra-modern. Our Flight 001 faves include the F1 Spacepak packing system (featuring separate compartments for both clean and dirty clothes), the collapsible and eco-friendly Bubi silicone water bottle, roomy duffel bags in bold colors, and “Not a Tourist” luggage tags made of sunshine yellow rubber. With equal emphasis on curation and quality, Flight 001 makes packing one of the best parts of traveling.
Traveling has become less about relaxing and more about how you’re going to outsmart long security lines and inevitable departure delays. The fine folks from Flight 001 help take the sting out of hitting the road with fun, retro-modern accessories that truly put the “fun” in functional.
This massive sale has everything you need to hit the road in style. From apparel and footwear to accessories and Victorinox luggage, everything is smart, sleek, and exceptionally well-crafted. Whether you're getting away for the weekend or setting off on an extended trek, these selections are just the thing to satisfy even the most discerning man of the world.
