If you have to rush from the aircraft to your first meeting you'll want to look good. Decant your favourite toiletries into these mini bottles approved for in-flight use.
3. Shirt Shuttle
The Shirt Shuttle stops your shirt looking like a crumpled crisp packet when you get it out for your business meeting after a long journey.
4. Osprey Pullman passport cover
Frequent business travellers find their passports can soon look tatty. But the Pullman passport cover is elegant and smart.

Fed up with suitcase chaos? Belts, scarves, accessories, adaptors, cables and all your other smaller bits and bobs can be kept organised in this trio of zip-up storage pouches.
