I attended the 2014 International Travel Goods Show to find out about all the latest and greatest travel products. I admit that I have a addiction to travel products and have a hard time finding something I do not already own. At least that is what I thought until I attended the Travel Goods Show and found a whole bunch of new and exciting products.
There were over 250 exhibitors showcasing their products at the three day show. In addition to the many new products there were some interesting takes on the products that we have been using for years. Security and comfort were big themes in products this year. Listed below are some of the many products that I found interesting.
Allett produces thin wallets in both nylon and leather for men and women. Many of the wallets contain RFID protection to protect you against credit card and identity theft. This is important because most new credit cards and passports hold RFID chips that can be read by someone with a scanner standing next to you.
This is for people who want an additional level of security when they stay at hotels or hostels. The Door Jammer is portable and easy to use. It weighs only eight ounces will easily fit in a purse or bag.

The TracDot is a small luggage tracking device that you place in your suitcase to track where your luggage is. It uses the cellular network to track your bag and lets you know via email, text or online when your bag arrives at the airport.

The Scrubba ideal product for people that like to travel light. Instead of doing laundry in a dirty sink you place the cloths in the bag with some detergent, rub them around and rinse. The bag weighs less than six ounces.
A lightweight child carrier for children over 2 1/2 and up to 60 pounds. This replaces bulky backpack carriers and strollers. I think my brother would like of these to use with my niece.
