Pills, Suds, and Safety

Travel gear ranks high on my list of “things I love” because it involves travel and items that will hopefully make my travelling life better.

Lewis N. Clark Travel gear is designed to make your travel life easier, smarter and safer so that you can get out there and explore and enjoy your life! I was super excited when they contacted me to try out their products as I just love this way of thinking.

Lewis N. Clark AM/PM Pill Organizer 800

As I age and travel to more exotic locations, I’ve noticed that I’m travelling with more and more pills! It’s a fact of life!

Even if you aren’t taking prescription medications there are still vitamins and probiotics to stay healthy when you aren’t exactly eating properly, and of course, antacids for when you are eating in excess, aspirin or ibuprofen for pain/headaches, antihistamines for allergy attacks — the list goes on and on!

If you are like me, then this Lewis N. Clark 4 in x 8 in (when folded) pill organiser (Photo above) might be your answer. I haven’t used it on a trip and have only travelled “make-believe” for testing purposes, and I do think it would be useful to separate all my various medications.

Pro

  • Zipper in the back of the case to hold drug information/documents
  • 16-labeled colour coded slide zip compartments – 8 for day, 8 for night
  • Durable
  • Good quality
  • Lightweight
  • Folds up and is secured with Velcro
  • Extra pill organizer pouches are also available

Con

  • If you fill each compartment with a lot of pills it may get bulky
  • Not crush proof
  • Only 8 days/8 nights or 16 compartments
  • Size isn’t exactly what I would call “small” but it does hold quite a bit

Lewis N. Clark Laundry Kit

If you are a One Bag Carry-on Only traveller such as I am then you know that doing laundry is a must when you are on the road. My laundry strategy involves things in 3s because I’m wearing one pair, washing one pair, and I have one extra pair just in case! I wash a pair of undies and pair of socks in the hotel sink nightly.

Do these problems sound familiar?

  • The stopper in the sink isn’t tight, and the water drains out
  • The towel bar is covered in towels, and there isn’t anywhere to hang any other wet items
  • You don’t want the entire hotel room to look like a laundry line

Here’s your solution: a large universal stopper, some laundry detergent and a portable clothesline (sold separately)

– Eight packets of Woolite® cold water wash
– 4-inch Drain plug is universal and will cover majority of drains

I’ve had my eye on a latex tubing clothesline for a while now but this was the first time I’ve used one. I always thought it was a bit of a gimmick to be truthful because I kept thinking that the rubber braid would just sag with the weight of the wet clothes. Honestly – it worked. I’m not sure that I would trust the suction cups to hold up the clothesline and heavy wet items, but at least you have the other two attachment options for extra security. Just be careful when securing the clothesline – don’t stretch it too far in case it comes undone and snaps back at you and hits you in the face.

Lewis N. Clark Latex Clothesline

Pro

  • Comes with 3 attachment options – clip, Velcro or suction cup
  • Latex tubing stretches to 6 ft
  • Triple braided
  • No need for clothes pins or clips, just stick the corners of your clothes through the gaps in the braid
  • Durable
  • Well made
  • Was able to hold quite a few heavy pieces of clothes
  • Packs small

Con

  • Be careful if you are allergic to latex
  • Wish it came with a carrying case or mesh bag

Lewis N. Clark RFID Products

Ever since they’ve started putting microchips on our credit cards, I’ve heard talk of RFID.

But what IS RFID?

According to Wikipedia “Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is the wireless use of electromagnetic fields to transfer data, for the purposes of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects.”

In a nutshell, that’s why you can just tap your credit card to the top of the reader in the store to do “quick pay” or “fast pay”– your card (AND your passport) has this technology built into it.

You gotta know that criminals are crafty, and once something new is invented – criminals get to work immediately to hack it. So apparently, they’ve developed readers where they can just walk by you and steal your “signal” – sneaky!

Lewis N. Clark sent me a Trifold leather wallet (4inx 3in size when folded) and a hard case style aluminium wallet to test and review.

Lewis N. Clark Travel Gear Review RFID
 
For both of the RFID products I wasn’t able to test if they blocked the signal or not so, I’m going to have to take their word for it, but I have to say the products themselves are pretty nice, and I’m very pleased with the quality and workmanship.
 

RFID Trifold Wallet

Pro

  • Really nice high quality lambskin leather
  • 2 compartments to separate your bills – great for multiple currencies
  • 6 credit card or business card slots
  • Trifold
  • ID slot

Con

  • Hubby commented that it stuck up from his back pocket and that it was a little taller than his other wallets. But he’s been using it ever since that day and hasn’t complained since.

RFID Aluminum Wallet

I like the hard case, and I tuck cash and business cards into one of the slots if I’m carrying a smaller evening purse and not bringing my usual full wallet.

Pro

  • Strong and durable
  • Inner accordion slots
  • Has 10 slots for presumably 10 cards but I double up on a few of the slots and it still closes without any issues

Con

  • I’m not sure how long the pushbutton release clip will last because it is plastic but I’ve opened and closed it multiple times for testing, and I’ve been using it regularly for about a month now and so far so good. I might put an elastic band around it just as a precaution (but that’s just because I’m paranoid)

Thanks for the reviews- it helped me get an idea of what else I need to pack for my 3-month European trip!

I looked at their website and they have so many items I could use. My “plastic” pill caddy is about beaten to death and I love their “pill organizer”, the hanging toiletry kit, document organizer, ultimate comfort set, neck pillow (no I don’t have one yet), Europe/Asia adapter plug ins and about 4 cable locks.

I always wonder if the RFID wallets are really working…but I do think they’re something we should probably be using more of these days.

Nice review! The wallets sound very useful. Haven’t tried Lewis N Clark’s stuff yet, but it all looks handy.

My dad’s getting older and has a pretty complicated mix of medications to keep track of for his heart condition – and just like his daughter, he’s refusing to stop traveling! The pill pack along with the aluminium wallet, should help him stay organized!

I love these products! I cannot wait to test them out! I have always been a huge fan of the quality of Lewis and Clark products. I have a set of packing cubes that have lasted me years now.
The RFID wallets are almost at the musthave stage, so I am glad you have featured them. happy travels!

Haven’t tried their stuff yet, but love some of these items! The 3-1-1 carry-on clear pouch will definitely come in handy, but I love the packing cubes that you reviewed on the other page. I need to invest in some to keep organized!

I have traveled with the older model of the laundry kit for many a trip and find it indispensable.

Mary Chong October 3, 2014 - 5:36 pm

Thanks Sara for your comment – I think the addition of the different attachment methods is a great improvement.

I LOVE the idea of the clothes line. I think I may need to get myself one…

Reply
Mary Chong October 3, 2014 - 5:38 pm

Yes Helen, the clothesline would be great if you were packing light and had to wash and dry regularly. No clothespins needed!

Great review! I’ve been looking around for a wash kit for my upcoming Europe trip as I’ll be gone for 2 months with a carry-on. I love this one and am going to have to move it to the top of the list.

I really like the idea of the aluminum wallet – travel aside, this would be great for my husband who works in construction / dusty environments…this would certainly protect the contents of his wallet while on the job. Well done L&C!
