Found on Digg: 11 Stupid Travel Accessories


Some travel accessories are cool. Items like the portable microwave, the knapsack chair and the keychain
sized iPhone charger on would be kind of nice to have even if the farthest you're going is your own backyard.

But some items meant to make travel a little easier guarantee to suck the cool right out of you. You'll end up looking like John Candy in Planes, Trains and Automobiles instead of George Clooney in Up In The Air. (love that name) put together a list of the 11 stupidest accessories for travelers, which includes everything from a portable bidet to the monstrous Skyrest travel pillow (not even wearing that awesome Hawaiian shirt excuses that guy from bringing a small blue sofa on board).

If you are a regular traveler and think you can't live without any of these 11 products, maybe you've been breathing too much circulated air.
