Traveling is exciting, but it’s not always the most comfortable thing, especially when you’re flying long distances.

From cramped seats to freezing air conditioners and broken outlets, if you don’t have a little good luck, long-haul flights can be pretty dreadful. However, there are a few things you can bring along with you to make them so much better.

Keep scrolling to get the details on six must-haves from Amazon for flights that are sure to help the time pass quickly.

Don’t settle for those mini water bottles that you get on airplanes — bring your own! Staying hydrated will help you to look and feel your best when you touch down. Plus, this sleek bottle keeps your drink cold thanks to its double wall, stainless steel design. It also has a leak-proof cap so you can avoid any spills. But the real star of this bottle is the inconspicuous compartment at the bottom to hold your essentials. Keep everything from vitamins and earbuds to car keys close by.

This product also has a washable, sweat-wicking pillowcase and comes with a convenient carrying case.
