Pool Noodles

This is more useful for checked bags than carryon but I'll offer it anyway. A few years ago I started carrying a short length of a pool noodle for use in some PT I need to do. I found that it was great to drape my slacks over before putting them in my suitcase. It prevents a hard fold crease in the pants and also keeps them from sliding down in the bag causing even more wrinkles. I place shoes toward the wheel end of the bag and the noodle at the opposite end. Hope someone else finds this useful.

That's pretty clever. That foam insulation that goes around pipes would work, too, and takes up less room. Hmmm

And when you aren’t traveling they are great to put in your boots!

They're long skinny soft foam swimming pool toys. That can also be used in diy and craft projects.
