Long road trips got your back in a spasm? Your driving shoulder starting to ache after hours of travelling? Feeling tired and uncomfortable after a long day in the care? Let’s face it, the joys of travelling come with relaxing rewards but getting there, we often tend put our bodies through the paces, with long hours in stationary positions, cramped spaces and restricted body motion that can, over time, cause unwanted aches and pains. We set out on a mission to find 3 of the top must-have travel accessories that make travelling easier and more enjoyable for the active and adventurous traveler.
MUST-HAVE ITEM 1: Hyperice Hypervolt
Portable and always on-call, think of the Hypervolt like a massage therapist to massage away all your stress and tension on your travels. Percusion massage to relief tension and stiffness after long period of travel – a big must! The Hypervolt 2 by Hyperice is approved by TSA for carry-on, and lightweight enough to travel with you where-ever you go. Massage guns are more popular than ever. Celebrities, professional athletes and fitness influencers alike rave about their benefits. That’s because anyone can use them – whether you’re an active individual who like light exercise or a seasoned professional athlete, the benefits are equally beneficially for all.
The Hypervolt 2 has an improved ergonomic design, reduced weight, and three speeds of powerful percussion to help you get back to doing what you do, even better. Give your muscles the daily relief they’ve been asking for with the Hypervolt 2’s percussion massage – you’ll be up and ready to tackle another day of travel and adventure with ease.
MUST-HAVE ITEM 2: Miltteds Compression Socks
Travel compression socks go on the list of good travel accessories as they are one of the must-haves for long flights or road trips to keep your feet from swelling. Milteds is compression wear made with MILK protein for comfort, style and performance. These compression garments are a must if you find yourself travelling long hours in the car, on road trips, and even for those local flights. Anyone who spends long periods of time on their feet, or being stationary for any length of time during work or travel can lead to tired, achy legs, ankles and feet which is why compression products like Milkteds are necessary as they apply pressure, gradually decreasing from the ankle to the knee.
The Milkteds products are CE marked and provide a moderate degree of circulatory support (referred to as British Standard Class 1 and 2). They use a yarn mix made from milk protein (yes drinking milk!) to create products in a range of colours with a soft, natural feel. Their product range is not only for travelling but also everyday wear, maternity wear, sports wear, recovery wear and lifestyle wear.
