I really wish I had these products on my recent trip to Hawaii. We were living out of a tent and car so having all the locations of our stuff mentally mapped out by quadrants was key. Product was received for review purposes and this post may contain affiliate links.
Picture this: a basic sedan, three people, camping supplies–including tent, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, coolers and cooking utensils–three enormous backpacks, three sets of snorkeling gear and groceries for the week. Keep in mind, I’m a girl (oh yeah, I overpack,) and this is my first time to the Big Island so I need souvenirs.
To my shock and amazement, we survived. Although, the boys were definitely annoyed with me on several occasions for encroaching their designated car “living spaces.” Basically, my stuff was everywhere. I had toiletries strewn about and when it came time to shower, I was a total spaz. Because airlines are very particular about what you are allowed to fly with, I checked full size bottles of shampoo, conditioner, sunscreen, lotions and so forth. What a nightmare.
Never waste money on trial/travel size products again! These Pitotubes are TSA compliant, durable and leak-free. “It’s rocket science for your packing.™” At first I thought these were a bit pricey, but after trying them, they are way worth it! They have a pump that uses an opaque piston that automatically rises from the bottom to provide you with complete, airless delivery of your favorite product. To refill, you just use the piston stick included in the kit to push the piston back to the bottom and refill. You can also use the spray attachments for things like hair spray or body splash. Pretty little labels are also included so you don’t confuse your products. The carrying case is compact and easy to pack. Plus they’re dishwasher safe. They really thought of everything on this product!
While on the Big Island, we did some wine tasting. I’ve never had such delicious wine. I wanted to bring back as many bottles as possible. They will ship it to you, but that costs a small fortune. I did end up bringing home one bottle but risked my entire packed wardrobe in the process. I was so nervous that it would break in my luggage and destroy all my stuff. Luckily, it was fine, but I would not want to take that chance again.
With the BottleWise Duo, I can rest assured that whenever I travel with wine it is safe and so are the things around it. This bag is of super sturdy construction and very stylish. It has a two compartments consisting of a vinyl leak-proof bag inside of a padded pouch. They nest together and roll up to save space. This is perfect for any kind of travel. Whether flying (TSA friendly) or just driving to Grandmas, this is the perfect way to transport any standard 750ml bottle of wine, champagne, or other liquid treasures ranging from Scotch to olive oil.
