Uncommon Goods: Unique Travel Gear October 3, 2011

Who says your gear has to look like everyone else? I've dug up some great travel goods that you may not have seen before.
crumpled city maps

Crumpled City Maps by Emanuele Pizzolorusso solve the problem of folding up a map wrong by making it crumpled to start with. Twenty-three cities are available and made of a waterproof material. Available at palomar for €12,00 in the EU or on Amazon for $10-30 in the US.

kikkerland headphone splitter

Kikkerland Headphone Splitter lets you share your entertainment device with your travel buddy. I think it's perfect for watching movies on the airplane together. $10 at Kikkerland or $8 at Amazon

poketo! travel journal

Poketo! Travel Journal has space for notes, as well as a pocket for keeping loose papers at bay. I'm always picking up flyers to jog my memory later and like to having important information close at hand. Available from Poketo for $24.
