Collapsible Water Bottle

This water bottle is perfect if you don’t have a lot of space in your luggage. The water bottle collapses to a smaller size, which means less bulk to carry around.

Travel Towel

Depending on where you stay, many places require that guests pay a small fee for a towel or that they bring their own. To avoid bulkiness in your luggage, a travel towel is a lightweight texture that absorbs up to 8 times its water weight. The best part is that it will wring out almost completely dry.

 

There are various options priced between $9.95 and $24.95 here.
