Maui Jim AlaKa’i Look cool in the SoCal heat with these fl exible frame shades (which helps when baby snags them off your face during a rous-ing round of peekaboo!). The double polar-ization tech is optimal for watersports and on the golf course, or simply seeing in great detail the vistas at your new port of call or resort destination. The gloss black frames’ no-slip-grip survives the sweatiest of days, and goes from sport to evening out, while the MauiBrilliant lenses offer incredible clarity. $299, Magellan’s Four Wheel Carry-On 22inch As a dad, the days of packing light are behind him. The latest collection of ultra-light, soft-sided luggage from Lipault Paris four 360° spinner wheels for such effortless maneuvering, when the kids insist on “help-ing”, they will actually be helping. The best part is the size, which comes in just under most of the airline’s restrictions, for maxi-mum binky and blankie room without wor-ries about them being lost in cargo. $199, Pure Sir Leather Travel Wallet Keep important travel docu-ments and identifi cation together in one place, protected not just from clumsy hands or misplaced documents, but from RFID in-trusion by hackers out to wire-lessly collect your data from your credit and credit cards. $49, MOVA Globe Keep dad’s inspiration level high between trips with this perfect metaphor, the perpetu-al motion globe.
