Travel light Why pack less? The tiny, por­ta­ble VAGO Bag­gage Com­pres­sor vac­uum packs lug­gage in five min­utes to free up room (or seal oƒ dirty laun­dry), leav­ing plenty space for travel sou­venirs. And it charges with a mi­cro-usb cable, like a phone. Only catch? You need to buy ex­tra VAGO bags as the de­vice only comes with one. From R2 565 for de­vice; from R905 for a small bag, wan­ti­tall.com Smart sound For easy trans­porta­tion, the chic, wire­less Bow­ers & Wilkins PX Noise Can­celling Head­phones fold flat, plus have a 22-hour bat­tery life, ideal for long-haul trips.
