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.
The warmer weather begs leaving your city digs behind in search of sandy beaches and quiet evenings. Make sure your to-go bag is properly outfitted with all the essentials —think stylish basics, duffle bags, shades, flip flops, and much more.
It’s no secret that flying can be a somewhat prickly experience these days. Thankfully, Flight 001 is around to make things a little easier. The niche label’s sporty, retro travel gear is everything you need to take the edge off packing for air travel—from dopp cases and passport holders, to a handy “Go Clean” set complete with laundry and shoe bags. It’s just the thing to see you through your trip in style.
A man’s accessories are what complete his look, and let’s face it, that backpack you’ve been carrying since college isn’t impressing anyone. Why not step up your ensemble — whether heading into the office or out of town for the weekend — with Jack Spade totes, rugged messenger bags from Freitag, or a tight, wheeled bag from Eagle Creek. We haven’t forgotten about the little guys either: Your iPad, laptop, and credit cards all stand to improve their living situation with sleeves, cases, and wallets by McManus, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and others — all for under $100.
