When the NYLON crew set off for Project Las Vegas last week, we were surprised by a few new airline rules.
Want a bag of pretzels? It’ll cost you.
Need a blanket to stay warm? Pull out your wallet.
But nothing vexed us like the charges to check a bag. If it’s checked, you run the risk of the bag getting lost and you having nothing to wear; if it’s carried on, you have to ditch all your favorite luxe shampoos and body lotions with the guy at security.
Too bad 3floz.com didn’t launch a little sooner.
The new website features all your favorite brands, from Malin + Goetz to Ole Henriksen, only in pint-size form. The products are all TSA-approved, taking out the guesswork that’s inherent with shopping for smaller bottles. (Yes, some brands make 4 oz. bottles just to piss us off.)
For travelers, they’ve made it easy to upgrade from the cheap hotel soap you’d rather not use by offering international shipping, direct-to-hotel delivery, and same-day courier service within Manhattan. Even if you’re not airport-bound, 3floz.com allows you to try that Philip B conditioner you’ve been eyeing for a quarter of the price you’d pay for a full-size bottle.
If only they could figure out a way to get us an in-flight upgrade and we’d actually look forward to air travel.
