Flight 001

Specialty: Travel related – Luggage, bag tags, packing accessories, wallets, adapters, travel gadgets, etc.


Website: www.flight001.com

Retail locations: Berkely, San Francisco, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Chicago  and Sydney.

Flight 001 is expensive.  No doubt about it.  Their selection is somewhat limited.  So, why even bother to list them here?  They do have unique things that are hard to find anywhere else, when it comes to travel gear, especially packing items.  One of our favorite items is the F1 Seat Pack.   There’s nothing more frustrating than having to fill every nook and cranny in your backpack with things you need while you’re in the air.  Whether that be adapters, earphones, medicine, etc.  Because of course, you won’t need it until that seat belt sign is on for 20 minutes straight and you can get it out of the overhead bin.

One big advantage of Flight 001 is that when they have a sale or put items on clearance, they don’t mess around.  A few months back, we picked up a lot of handy items for over 70% off.  Make sure you sign up for the email list, so you’ll know when the items you want will be on sale.  But once they notify you, don’t wait around because this stuff flies off the shelves quickly.

DEAL WATCH:  Sign-up for their email list to be notified of monthly sales.  Sometimes, you can buy items at more than half off retail, but you’ll need to move quickly.
