A Chic Way to Avoid Germs While Traveling

I think I might have just found my latest favorite travel accessory for this fall. Scough.

Scough makes good looking scarfs with built in carbon filters that trap and neutralize bacteria and germs as well as pollution. If you’re like me, you’re probably never ever (or at least rarely) going to wear a face mask, but Scough’s concept really appealed to me (if it appeals to you, scroll down for my giveaway).

I can wear it like a scarf, but when trapped on a plane during flu season or traveling in countries with poor pollution I can just pull it up over my face and nose for instant protection. Sure I might look a little like I’m trying to channel my inner bandit, but I love how easy it is to drop the scarf for a natural looking trip picture in a place like Beijing, for instance, and immediately pull back up.scough-howitworks-468x310-02

An extra bonus, for the days I’m traveling while sick, the Scough filter will catch and kill my germs, sparing my fellow passengers contagion without advertising I’m sickly.

How It Works

Scough is made of super soft materials in good looking prints and colors with a compartment in the front for the carbon filter. The carbon filter is included but separate which makes it easy to replace and take out for the times want to wear it as a simple scarf.

Replacement filters are $20 each or $15 if you sign up for recurring delivery every 3 months.

SCOUGH GIVEAWAY!!

The kind folks at Scough had perfect timing. They contacted me about doing a giveaway for Heels First Travel readers right after I’d caught a cold on my flights home from Idaho. So not only was I excited about the cool concept, I was excited to try it out for myself. 🙂

So I have three brand new Scough’s up for grabs this week.

For your chance to win one, follow the instructions below. Be sure to rank your preferred scough

    I doubt much the germs one gets while traveling is airborne. I suspect the biggest culprit is dirty surfaces (door knobs, handrails, keyboards/touch pads, table tops etc etc etc). Washing your hands thoroughly/often is your best defense against getting sick.

    And I’d never travel to a country that has such lousy air quality that I needed to wear a mask.

    I think these would be great for cold and flu season even when not traveling!
