The So-Mine small travel pouch bag works much like a portfolio. It has slots for your electronic devices (like your tablet), phone, cables, and even your pens.

One reader gives a detailed review of her So-Mine pouch saying, “I hate sticking stuff in the seat back pocket because it’s not the cleanest. I’m always worried small items will get left behind, plus I hate constantly pulling out my backpack from under the seat to grab something. So, I bought this and it works very well for flat things like an iPad or kindle. It has a nice pocket to store small things like tissues, chapstick, and earbuds. I didn’t have to move it out of the way when my neighbor needed to get out.”

Carabiner Clips

 

Many readers echoed that seat pockets are not the most sanitary so they recommend bringing a carabiner clip to attach your pouch to the seat instead of stuffing it into the seat pocket.

One reader shares, “I used something similar for the first time this week and loved it. I bought double-sided carabiners and hooked my pouch to the seat pocket. It held my iPad, earbuds, kleenex, small lotion, hand, and Clorox wipes, and lip balm.” 

One reader shares a secondary tip. “Binder clips are also golden. Then you can clip it to the seat pocket if there’s not a lot of room.”

Why Use a Travel Pouch Inside Your Airline Seat Pocket?

 

A pouch for your next long haul flight is super useful because often a purse or personal carry-on item is generally stuffed under a seat and pouches give immediate access to essentials in one place. Having your things in one place also ensures that you won’t leave anything behind.

One reader shares, “It was so easy when deplaning to just pull my bag out of the seat back pocket and stuff it into my backpack after my 7-hour flight.”

If you’re looking for an easy way to keep all of your small items together so that you can have a smooth flight, then a pouch is a smart travel accessory!
