What: Jumpseat Bags
Why: Whether you're a frequent-flying fan of cute vintage kitsch or you're just stoked for the return of airplane-centric Lost at the end of the month, Jumpseat Bags are a must-own. The limited-edition bags, which are made from funky vintage airline textiles, are perfect for intrepid travelers or ladies who just have a lot to lug (moms, I'm looking at you). Since they're made from swirly, seashell-patterned seat covers and are lined with military jacket material, you can bet these bags are up to some wear and tear. And they're roomy enough to tote all manner of on-the-road necessities (which, for me at least, includes a veritable library, cosmetics counter, and electronics store's-worth of paraphernalia). Those outlandish turquoise-and-seafoam and magenta-and-orange color combos that would make you cringe if you saw them on a modern airplane are really catchy on these casual carryalls – not to mention easy to spot at baggage claim. Each bag comes complete with airplane seat belt straps and a shiny stewardess-shaped charm. If you're flying the friendly skies or just navigating the fashion jungle, these one-of-a-kind totes are a must-have for your haul.
Price: The Galley Tote is $240, and the smaller Touring Bag is $180.
