Roadtrip/ Travel Essentials

This April, Onin.London conducted two and half week road trip along the Californian Coast. While on our trip we took these products and they really helped make the trip so much smoother!


Kovered Backpack

The Arrow is a fully functional rolltop and water-repelling technical backpack priced at £105.00. While pricer than other backpacks, this one is built to last, saving you money replacing your backpack in the future. The thing we love the most about the brand is sustainability and the best thing about Kovered is that they’re sticking to their promise to reduce landfill. Arrow promises to be an extremely durable backpack, made with water-repellent bluesign® approved materials. There’s numerous zipped compartments to keep tech safe and the material is a water repellent, recycled ballistic nylon fabric. This ensures your items will stay dry in case of an accident.

WAWA messenger bag

Introducing the Water Resistant Messenger Bag – the perfect accessory for all your adventures, big and small. Made from waxed organic rip-stop cotton in the UK, this bag is built to last. Its zipped fastening and adjustable strap keep your belongings safe and secure, while the metal G hooks make it easy to adjust on the go. Plus, it’s suitable for both men and women, so everyone can enjoy its rugged good looks that are needed in every water resistant shoulder bag.

Whether you’re using it to store your laptop and books for work or studying, or packing it with groceries for a day trip, this bag is up for anything and the most environmentally friendly messenger cases. And because it’s water resistant, you don’t have to worry about the weather ruining your plans.

Must Haves

Bamboo & Natural Rubber Hairbrush

These Bamboo & Natural rubber hair brushes come in a small rounded size and a larger paddle shaped brush. They can biodegrade or be composted once you’re done with them. The bristles are made from bamboo, the handle and back are of bamboo and the bristle bed is natural rubber. We loved this one as it is compact and better for the environment!


This has become an absolute travel essential, even when I’m not travelling!  My Little Sudocrem easily fits in my handbag and is a wonder cream that tackles a whole host of skin issues when travelling. Think chafing, sunburn… it does it all!
Ramer Sponges

Windy days, grey skies and wet shoes will soon be a thing of the past as summer is just around the corner. Whilst sun-seekers look forward to their summer holidays, Ramer Sponges has everything you need to get your skin summer ready and keep you feeling clean during your travels.

The Ramer Invigorating Body Sponge (£3.15/£5.15 RRP) is a great addition to any tanning toolkit, ensuring your skin is glowing even before you touchdown in hotter climates. The sponge lightly exfoliates the skin, unblocking the pores and leaving the skin feeling clean, bright, energised and revitalised. Helping remove those dead skin cells that naturally build up over winter, regularly exfoliating with the Ramer Invigorating Body Sponge makes your skin more receptive to moisturiser and helps tanning products absorb more evenly.

Ideal for thoroughly removing sun cream after a day of sunbathing, the Ramer Invigorating Body Sponge is available in a range of colours, including a bright Tangerine and Teal. You can also choose from a small or large sized sponge to suit your tanning needs.

To help keep you feeling clean and bright on your travels, make sure to pack the RamerTravel Sponge (£2.99 RRP). These clever twin pack sponges are compressed so can easily slip into your suitcase. They expand when soaked in warm water so travellers can experience the super-softness of a Ramer Sponge wherever they are. These space-savers are available in two colourways – Sunburst Yellow and White or Ocean Blue and White.

Made from a magical material, all Ramer Sponges harden as they dry, helping to prevent the growth of bacteria, and will instantly soften when soaked in warm water, ready to re-use. Super-soft and non-scratchy, Ramer Sponges are machine washable at 40 o C, durable and long-lasting. These travel essentials are not tested on animals and are hypoallergenic, ideal for sensitive skin.

The Ramer Invigorating Body Sponge isavailable from £3.15RRP and the Ramer Travel Sponge is also available at £2.99 RRP. Visit where your travel accessories await.

James and Jake

You love a workout or a run, but sneakers combined with sport can leave your feet in need of refreshment. Plus, you never fully know what bacteria is lurking on the floor of your locker room. This fast-acting foot mist was developed to blitz the bacteria caused by sweat. With natural antibacterial eucalyptus and a reviving minty fragrance, your feet will be instantly cooled, clean and soft. While it’s formulated to function for men’s skin, this was a God send for our feet after a full day at Disney! Free from synthetic fragrance or artificial colours and packaged in a lightweight, shatter-proof and recyclable spray bottle.

Wild deodorant and Wild shampoo bar

I love Wild Deodorant and have been using it for years, so this is a must travel item for me. But I’ve recently discovered the Wild Shampoo Bar. It’s made with natural ingredients and enriched with natural ingredients like Sweet almond oil & jojoba oil. It’s been great for my hair as it softens my hair and make it smell incredible long after my hair dries! It comes in three scents but I love the Coconut and Vanilla.


Olly’s snacks

Snack food is a must when travelling and our favourite during this road-trip was the planet’s thinnest & crispiest pretzels! They have Less fat & fewer calories than crisps & popcorn. Plus they’re oven-baked with super seasonings and All vegan too.


Universal Performance

There’s nothing comfier than leggings whilst travelling and we love Universal Performance. They’re a pioneering new UK sustainable activewear brand for men and women which is using ground-breaking, odour-eliminating technology in its clothes, enabling people to wear it more and wash it less, which is better for the environment. Our personal favourites include: 

Vionic Trainers

For road trips and travel where there’s going to be loads of walking… Look no further than this all gender/unisex active style trainer. They’re built for performance with dual-density cushioning, 1st Ray forefoot flexibility and extended sizing! These were super comfy and definitely worth the £120 price tag!

When travelling I love taking a small portable speaker with me to liven up the hotel rooms or for when having picnics. The StormBox Micro 2 is just what we needed for that… but it’s so much more than a speaker! Not only does it deliver powerful music; it doubles as a power bank with Tribit’s exclusive SmartID technology. The Micro 2 features a USB-C charging port to charge your phone, tablet, and other accessories. It really is small enough to fit in your pocket but can also be clipped to anything from your backpack to tree branches, bike handlebars, or a belt loop.

Fill it up and head on out to your destination—this mug is leak proof so you won’t spill a drop. The NeverLeak™ technology features a unique 3-position lid that rotates open for easy sipping, then locks tight when closed. So you can take it and toss it anywhere without worrying about your stuff getting wet. Stanley’s signature vacuum insulation keeps your coffee or tea hot for hours. The lid also disassembles for a deep clean. We loved these on our road-trip as it made sure we didn’t need to stop at coffee shops as much because we had our drinks ready to go all day.

Stanley Classic NeverLeak™ Travel Mug | 0.47L

Beach Powder

Being in California, we spent time on sandy beaches so Beach Powder came in handy for sure.
 It is an all-natural, talc-free formula that easily removes sand from the skin, making it the most convenient and safe way to clean up after a day of fun in the sun. From its revolutionary appearance on Dragons Den to your beach bag, Beach Powder has come a long way to help make post-beach clean-up faster and easier. Our favourite was the one with shimmer in it because who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle!
