Booze is readily available on most flights. But the ingredients needed to make anything more complex than a Jack and Coke are nowhere to be found. Unless, of course, you're packing a Carry On Cocktail Kit. Available in six styles — Old Fashioned, Gin & Tonic, Moscow Mule, Champagne Cocktail, Bloody Mary, and Hot Toddy — these self-contained, TSA-friendly tins includes everything you need to make a couple real drinks at 30,000 feet. Inside each kit are the proper ingredients for the cocktail such as bitters or craft tonic syrup, along with tools like jiggers and spoons, a recipe card, and linen coasters. All of which should help make that mid-morning flight from Omaha to Reno a little less boring.
Vague Watch Co.'s Grey Fade Submariner gets its name from the dark grey bezel insert, meant to mimic the sought-after "ghost bezel" effect found on the faded black bezels of well-worn vintage sport watches. Adding to the vintage look are intentional but subtle distressing marks of the case sides. It's built with an automatic movement, meaning you'll never have to change a battery, as the watch is powered by the movement of your arm during wear. With a stainless steel case, a screw-down back, and a 100-meter depth rating, the watch is also rugged enough to handle some serious time in the water. On top of that, it ships with a sharp military-inspired case, watch tool, and a classic nylon NATO strap to switch out with the stainless oyster band.
