Solid Travel Colognes for Men

Let’s face it, there are already enough dramas with liquids and flying these days, and if you’re a guy, being seen fussing around with a bottle of cologne for an in-flight freshen-up isn’t something you really want. That’s where the nifty range of Solid State colognes comes in: they’re solid, concentrated 10g-size men’s colognes that slide straight into your coin pocket or toilet bag for on-the-fly use.

Made from natural, botanically derived ingredients including shea butter and jojoba oil, Solid State colognes come in a range of refreshing, masculine fragrances. Choose from Aviator with scents of grapefruit, mint and sandalwood; Journeyman with mandarin, cedar and vetiver; Wayfarer with tobacco, vanilla and spice – and more. The colognes are packaged in a shatterproof tin that airport security will have no issues with and they are easy and discreet to apply: just dab them on your pulse points and you’ll smell agreeable even on the longest flight. Solid State colognes are available at New Zealand retailers including Farmers, Jo Malone, and online.

Water-Purifying Travel Bottle

The CambelBak Water Purifier bottle is a handy, light, travel-easy bottle that turns tap or clear natural water into drinkable water in less than a minute using UV technology. At the same time, the bottle does its bit for the environment by eliminating the need to buy water in plastic bottles that are frequently discarded after use.

The CambelBak bottle comes with a builtin LCD display to confirm the purification process has been completed. Its system can be recharged through a mini USB cable or solar charger and its energyefficient design lasts 10,000 cycles, even with exposure to cold weather. Fill it from a tap, streams, or more and the CamelBak reduces bacteria by 99.9999%, viruses by 99.99% and protozoa by 99.9%. Camelbak water purifier bottles are available from safe water treatment method and travel companion.
