Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
Whether you’re catching up on Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels or flipping through a casual beach read, the last thing you want is glare on your screen. Enter the Paperwhite, with an E-ink display that's always easy to read and carry.
UE Boom Portable Speaker
Bose QuietComfort 25 Noise Cancelling Headphones
It was already convenient to get turn-by-turn directions, currency conversions, and spoken translations right from your wrist. Now that you can also get an Hermes-made model, the Apple Watch has become as much a style essential as a travel essential.
GoPro Hero 4 Action Camera
Sony Alpha A5000 Mirrorless Camera
iPad Air 2
Can’t wait to binge watch the new season of Orange is the New Black? The iPad Air 2 is still your best bet. The retina display is crisp and clear, and the battery life is long enough to keep you entertained through most transatlantic flights. (Just be sure to download your shows before leaving town!)
The Powerstation can charge multiple gadgets at four times their normal speed, and it's smaller than a deck of cards. It means your phone (and your social media streams) will outlast your flight delay, no matter how dire the situation.
