Long Haul Flight Essentials

This post is sponsored by Vena and Fosmon. I was asked by Vena and Fosmon to write about some of the products they sent me. I tested out many and here are some of my favorite long-haul flight essentials. All opinions are my own.

4 Long Flight Must Haves 

Neck pillows, some form of entertainment, what are the best long haul travel essentials? I break down some of my favorite things to take during a long haul flight.

Travel Neck Pillow

Comfort is important so you’re able to find some relaxation time on a long haul flight. A comfy neck pillow is a non-negotiable, but which travel neck pillow is the best?

The Fosmon Memory Foam Neck Pillow is the most comfortable neck pillow I have ever tried. It provides support and is super comfortable since it’s made from memory foam. It also has mesh side panels to keep you cool and a washable cover. It also comes with ear plugs to wear as needed.

This is perfect if you’re trying to sleep on the airplane and makes for one of the best long flight essentials.

Portable Power Bank

Staying connected is important so you have access to your phone, tablet, and more. And if you’re flying a budget airline you might not have access to a USB port so you’re going to need a reliable power bank.

The Vena all-in-one PowerBank is a perfect travel power bank because it’s compact and fast charging. It has enough juice to charge your phone 2-3 times. This is perfect if you enjoy listening to podcasts or music, watching movies, and other entertainment on your phone or tablet.

High-Quality and Functional Phone Case

The Vena vCommute iPhone Wallet Case is perfect for long haul travel for many reasons. It’s made from high-quality polycarbonate and shock-absorbing thermoplastic polyurethane so in case your phone falls it’s still protected. However one of my favorite features is that it has a foldable magnetic flap on the back that easily attaches to a magnetic car mount for navigating during road trips, and doubles as a kickstand so you can watch movies or videos in the plane or car. 

Other features include a hidden wallet compartment on the back for you to keep your ID, cards, and more. This is convenient when flying domestically so you have your phone and ID in one place.

Toiletry Bag with Multiple Compartments

If you need to freshen up during your long flight or after then the Fosmon Hanging Toiletry Bag is for you. This bag has three compartments, three pockets, and a sturdy hook, perfect for staying organized and using it anywhere. It features a splash-resistant Cationic Oxford fabric, making it incredibly durable.

You can easily hang this inside the airplane restroom to get to the things you need, or in the airport restroom. And it easily packs back up to place in your carry-on luggage.

I hope this helps you during your next long haul flight!
