The best I've seen (but via pictures, not in the flesh) is probably this vintage number by the storied but defunct Pan Am. This was from a very different era of aviation from today, from a time when flying was very prestigious.
Everything about it looks so straightforward, so tasteful.

Beside method of conveyance, I am also interested in hearing method of unwrinkle.
I also carry my jacket on board, so first time after ariving the hotel is to unpack my pants and shirts.
I try the "fill the tub with hot water" and use the steam to straighten out the wrinkle way....is there another more practical way ?

HAHA, This is not the first time I hear that it should be banned / outlawed.
And trust me if I have access to a legit iron I will quick iron all my stuff over.
Not sure if our company use some more economic hotel that it neve carries iron...
one time I was in SD in USA, the iron is so weak I dont know what it is for ...(maybe just old or bad or for safety reason)
For jacket since I carry with me on board, it is usually quiet "lang chai"
For pants if I give them some time they look okay after hanging overnight
but for shirt...thats the problem...maybe a trick to fold / pack them ?

Snow Peak titanium mug. Made in Japan. Collapsible handles for more compactness. Featherweight. Indestructible. At 600ml, it is double the capacity of most mugs -- a feature I find useful when using it as a bowl to eat corn flakes in soya milk. Though double the capacity, it looks only 30% larger than most household mugs because it is a very efficient shape and very thin-walled. When WW3 comes, at least I have a proper canteen to eat out of while the rest of you use paper cups and styrofoam bowls.

I am using this mug as a drinking vessel, not a cooking utensil. When I've made a hot beverage, I like to fill the hand basin with cool water and partially immerse the mug in it to rapidly cool down the beverage to a drinkable temperature. The double walled mug would retard this.
