The Tech Travel Kit

We're all about simplicity and efficiency—especially when it comes to situations that can easily spiral into frustrating ordeals. Like traveling. Which is why instead of dumping a handful of cords and chargers into our carry-on, the Valet. team now swears by the tech travel kit. It works like this: You pack a small pouch or case with the necessary accessories and gadgets every modern man now requires—from a backup charger brick and headphones to handy items like a microfiber cleaning cloth. Keep it packed and ready to go, that way all you have to do is toss it in your travel bag before you head out. It keeps the inside of your carry-on neat—there's no tangle of cords to wrestle with mid-flight. And you won't be kicking yourself at the hotel because you've forgotten something at home. Build your kit based on your own personal needs, but here's what we're carrying in ours these days.
