As frequent business travelers know, the gear you have in your arsenal has a lot to do with how smoothly your plans go. Every year, the business travel industry comes up with something new, but a few basic must-haves are all that's necessary for a successful trip:

1. Compression bags
For the most efficient business travel, and to ensure that your favorite power suit doesn't get lost in transit, do not check your luggage. To fit everything you could possibly need in your carry-on, invest in a few compressions bags to condense your clothing.

2. Phone accessories
Having a working phone is an absolute necessity in today's business world. To make sure you never go without, purchase a battery extender to extend the life of your phone each day. Don't forget to pack your phone charger and power adapter!

3. Noise-canceling headphones
For long flights, noise-canceling headphones are a must. There are tons of options available that are both lightweight and compact. When there's a screaming child on your plane and you need to catch some shut-eye before the big meeting, you'll be glad that you have them.
