Sound familiar? Well this past year I have really tried to be a smarter traveller. I pack fewer pairs of pants and try to keep my t-shirt selection to a minimum. But one thing continually bogs down my bags: my uncontrollable desire to pack endless sweater options. You know what I mean.

I told Helen Tyler, the creator of the Pocket Poppet, this when I met her: When I first received a royal blue poppet in the mail, I wasn’t sure if I’d ever use it. Sure, it was totally cute – the little peacoat-style sweater boasted a mini belt flourish on the back that made it stylish. Sure, it could fold itself into a purse-like shape. But how was it different from any other sweater? Yet when I received the poppet, I kept using it. It was larger than a regular sweater, so I could wrap it around my legs while sitting on the ground or give myself extra warmth in a heavily air conditioned room. It packed up nicely, so you didn’t have to worry about spilling something or messing it up while throwing it in your purse. And when you wore the cardigan you had a secret pocket in the back that you could throw items in when you needed them. Pocket Poppet It wraps up nicely, too. The only caveat is the price. The poppet retails for $99, far over our budget for a cardigan. It also shouldn’t be machine dried, so you run a risk of ruining the nylon pocket if you don’t pay attention to the washing rules. But the poppet is often on sale, and the founders are looking for ways to reduce costs. With that, it’s worth giving the item a whirl. Our vote: Liked it Price: US $99 Buy it here...

    New products offer smart travel solutions By E’Louise Ondash Aug 06, 2014 • 2,609 views • 0 comments     NapAnywhere will permit a little shuteye no matter where you sit. Being stuck in the middle seat is not conducive to napping during flight, but the NapAnywhere will permit a little shuteye no matter where you sit. Unlike bulky travel pillows, NapAnywhere is a portable head-support device that can be tucked into a backpack or carry-on. Comes in four colors, three sizes, and has a carrying case and an easy-clean cover. $59. HYPERLINK “http://napanywhere.net/” http://napanywhere.net   Pocket Poppet Cardigan on the Go. An open-drape front, long-sleeved cardigan created to fold into its own protective pocket so you can stash it in your purse, backpack, stroller or glove box. I recently visited St. Louis where I nearly froze to death during a lunch with friends in a popular restaurant because the air conditioning was cranked so high. I could’ve used a Pocket Poppet Cardigan on the Go. This gem-of-an-invention is an open-drape front, long-sleeved cardigan created to fold into its own protective pocket so you can stash it in your purse, backpack, stroller or glove box. (Thanks again to people who can think in three dimensions.) When you wear the cardigan, you can use the secret pouch to hide ID, credit card or passport. Pure genius. Made in Chicago and comes in eight jewel-tone colors and white. $99.
