With Essential Supplies
By TIM BOXER
HAVE found that tight new airline policies make smart packing more important than ever. To be a smart packer, you have to consult Magellan’s, a leading source of all the best essential travel supplies since 1989. In addition to selling essential items to make your travel smoother, safer and more pleasant, Magellan’s offers free Travel Guides, too.
Topics for these new booklets include:
Restricted Air Travel. What should you expect at the airport?
Emergency Packing List. Products to ensure personal health and safety, secure luggage and valuables, and reduce travel stress.
Water Purification and Terrorism. You should keep a water purifier on hand in case of natural disasters. What about chemical or biological instances? This guide focuses on the benefits and limitations of water purifiers, such as the Exstream Orinoco Purifier, in an emergency situation.
For a catalog and to order the free Travel Guides call 24 hours a day 1-800-962-4943 or visit www.magellans.com. Even better, when you’re in Santa Barbara, California, drop into their store at 110 West Sola Street, one block behind historic Arlington Theater.
Magellan’s Rolling Garment Bag
If you travel with your laptop – and who doesn’t – you will find the Rolling Computer Overnighter a must-have. It comes with three roomy compartments to keep your papers and files organized.
The main zippered compartment is padded to carry your laptop. A front zippered pocket has a built-in organizer with fan file. The center opens to hold a change of clothes, or use it for more office support.
With a hidden telescoping handle and in-line skate wheels, this bag serves as your office on the go. All for $119.
Nina found the Baggallini Wallet Bagg a nifty product. It’s four in one: wallet, shoulder bag, hip bag and waist pack. Wear it any way you feel comfortable. This versatile number is made of water resistant microfiber and pewter finished trim.
It comes in two sizes. The regular size, at $37.85, has three zippered compartments to hold small items and coins, and another pocket outside, plus slots for your credits and and a pen.
The large size – the one I got Nina – has an eyeglass/cell phone pocket and an open pocket on the front. Inside are three zippered pockets and three open pockets, four credit card slots, and two loops for pens or lipstick. Priced at $46.85.
I love everything about Magellan’s Rolling Garment Bag. In 1990 Magellan’s was the first catalog to offer the vertical rolling bag design. It has since become the luggage of choice for the wise traveler.

Several innovative features enhance the utility of this suitcase. A Lock Guard protects the locks from damage. There’s a large vinyl ID window on which you can place a personalized card or photo to help you spot your bag on the luggage carousel. Well worth it at $325.
Then there’s the Eagle Creek Latitude Commuter, a garment bag that carries several suits. It has built-in organizer pockets. The front and back have a zippered pocket and a smaller open pocket. Wrapped handle and padded shoulder strap make it easy to carry. Priced at $130.
