Inside #HGQ02

August 28, 2014

I’m so overwhelmed with the response from #HGQ02.

Overwhelmed in a good way, that is.  Though I’m already stressing on making #HGQ03 even better.

The theme for this box, as previously mentioned, was “first class luxuries in economy travel.”  What I particularly love about this box is that every item can be used in your day-to-day life – not just for those awful, long flights.

And who better to show you than Mr. On The Go himself?  My husband is a management consultant who travels EVERY week.  Without fail.

He’s been a huge support and inspiration for the travel and packing content in this space, and I couldn’t think of a better person to interview on how he uses #HGQ02.  Take it away, hubs!

I thought that the contents of #HGQ02 would be great for me to organize and store my necessities while on the go.  

The eyemask caught my eye first, as I have trouble sleeping even with the smallest amount of ambient light.  Not all hotels manage to create absolute darkness in the rooms, which affects my sleep.  Other eyemasks I’ve used tend to apply too much pressure on my face and make it hard to breathe.  The Perpetual Shade eyemask is the only eyemask that’s been comfortable and guaranteed a great night’s sleep, no matter where I am.  

When I saw the FLIGHT001 bag, I immediately thought that it would be perfect for my chargers, which perpetually get tangled and lost inside my bag.  Rather than write on the bag itself, I employed my wife’s superior penmanship skills to customize my bag with the essential chargers I always need to pack.  Thanks honey!

I’ve been a Nourish Snacks fan for some time.  And while I enjoy Mr. Pop-u-lar, Cocoa Loco is definitely my favorite.  I commit to a clean diet even while traveling (easier said than done), and these snacks definitely help keep me satisfied without sacrificing taste.  

In all honesty, I don’t use the Baggu bag that frequently.  However, I’m glad to have it when I need to carry something and don’t have room in my suitcase or briefcase.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, honey!

Did you order #HGQ02?  What did you love, and what didn’t you love so much?  Your feedback means everything, and I’m so appreciative of your support and help!

    Loved everything save the snacks – not my thing but I did appreciate it. I used that baggu bag like no other on my recent work travel – I used for immediate needs bag so I didn’t have get up once I was on the plane – snacks/water/book/ear plugs/headphones – right in one place. The eyemask came in handy for sleeping as I have trouble sleeping in hotels (not my bed and I freak out). Definitely getting next quarter’s package!!!

      I’m thrilled to hear it, Kristen! Given how disgusting the security bins are, I’ve been using my Baggu to put my travel tote inside to protect it (and promptly wiping down the Baggu with an antibacterial wipe). I’m hard at work on #HGQ03, and hope you’ll love it as much as this one.

    Love the pattern and feel of fabric on the eyemask – I can’t wait to slip it on during my next flight!

      Thank you Jennifer! Feel free to slip on the mask for a weekend nap or at home! I wear mine every night.

    I loved the box! My eyemask has more orange than your picture (Orange is one of my favourite colours!). I’m going to regift the Flight 001 case to my sister only because she’s the artistic one and can do way more with it than I ever could. Funny story, I’m putting together a travel themed “gift basket” for my dad’s birthday next week, mostly ordered from Flight 001. But the Baggu bag I ordered was oversold :(. I got the email on Monday during the day then Monday night my Quarterly box arrived WITH a Baggu bag. So now my dad can get a complete gift in time for his birthday! THANKS!

      I love that you put together that gift basket for your father! What else went in there? I’m doubly thrilled that the BAGGU in #HGQ03 helped complete the gift.

      Thank you so much for your support, Telicia! It means everything.

        The carry-on quart bag, seat pak, and go clean shoes bag. He recently had a horrible travel incident. His Tumi carryon was too big for the NEW carryon restrictions so they made me check his bag. He only took his cellphone and wallet out which would have been fine for the quick flight from Toronto to New York BUT the flight detoured to Philly, was delayed in Philly, then missed his flight (waiting at the wrong terminal), so his luggage went without him but the luggage didn’t go to New York… It was 3 days before he saw his stuff again. I figure if something like this happens again he can atleast throw all that stuff in a Baggu bag and use that as his personal article.

    Will there be a theme to the next box?

    • hithaonthego

      There will be! We’ll be announcing it soon :)

    My new eye mask has bumped my Mary Green versions off the top of my list! Looking forward to the next box!
