These may look like ordinary travel items. But they have all of the usual refinements, as Q would say, for a man or a woman on holiday to travel in 007 style.

Spy Gear Lever


Now this is a gadget Q would be especially keen on. When planning your amazing getaway, remember Bond’s new set of wheels in Goldfinger (1964), his first Aston Martin DB5, equipped with a secret compartment in its gear lever. Unfortunately, you won’t find a little red button inside these gear levers, but you will find a top-secret place to conceal your valuables (such as money, memory cards, and jewelry), keeping them nearby while you skid around corners and maneuver expertly through side streets during your escape. This spy gear item will go undetected because custom styles may be available to match your car. But for extremely undercover vehicles, try the Stash-Knob or the Billet Gear Shift, available in charcoal or red.

Spy Sunglasses


No 007 travel gear list would be complete without spy shades. Reminiscent of the X-ray shades that Bond uses to check his opponents for weapons in The World Is Not Enough (1999), these Lightahead™ DVR Mp3 Spy Sunglasses also have some very interesting modifications. Equipped with external memory storage on a 128MB–8GB TF card, standard USB 2.0 port, and a 480 MAH lithium-ion polymer rechargeable battery, these shades record audio, photo, and video files—saving them for easy transfer to your computer after your trip.

Spy Leg Wallet


If you don’t have a snapping pocket trap like James Bond in Diamonds Are Forever (1971), the next best thing is to store your valuables somewhere completely unexpected. Introducing the SV868 Undercover™ Leg Wallet from Eagle Creek, the very latest in travel document security. This
stylish black wallet straps flat to your calf just above the ankle, keeping you looking trim in your jeans, suit, or tuxedo, while all of your must-haves are safely tucked away.

Spy Bra Wallet


Like Bond’s most concealable spy tool, the Aston Martin V12 Vanquisher in Die Another Day (2002), this fun piece of “adaptive camouflage” is so small and sleek that it’s absolutely invisible. The Silk Undercover™ Bra Stash snaps comfortably and securely around the center, side strap, or shoulder strap of a bra, keeping valuables safe in all of your spy travels. It comes in two shades, black or rose, and is even discreet enough to wear with a strapless cocktail dress—that is, if you’ve tucked one away in your luggage,
just in case.

Spy Heels


The very latest in spy fashion are these stylish, feminine versions of the spy shoes Bond uses in Goldfinger (1964) to hide his homing beacons. Pickpockets have met their match with the design improvements found in Double Agent Shoes™ by Bellona Fashions Inc., equipped with a hidden compartment in the heel that opens back for quick, convenient, inconspicuous access. Handmade and available in many great styles, these shoes are a must-have for every female spy traveler. Conceal your room key, money, memory cards, or even lipstick, and enjoy their safekeeping in style.

Spy Pocket Scarf


Want to look as stylish as Bond’s female co-stars always do? Introducing the fashionable Infinity spy scarf with a hidden pocket. Double it up for the draped neckline look of Miranda Frost in Die Another Day (2002). Wear it like a hood for the style of the Japanese spy Aki in You Only Live Twice (1967). Or let it drape to its full length over any shirt, sweater, or dress for that swooping cowl neckline that Bond can rarely resist. Whichever way you wear it, this lightweight fashion accessory is a sleek way to discretely carry cash, a credit card, or a key while you travel. It’s available in a variety of colors and patterns perfect for any season or destination.

DVR Spy Pen


Where would Bond be without his favorite spy pens that double as a Class 4 grenade in Golden Eye (1995) or as a listening device in Octopussy (1983)? This seemingly ordinary ballpoint pen, the cect® Mini DVR Spy Pen, has 16 GB (or 16 hours) of camera, audio, and video recording capacity and is equipped with a mini USB port, a micro SD card slot, and a high-capacity lithium-ion polymer rechargeable battery—and the sleek professional design goes without saying. Capture every imperative detail so that you can preserve your travel experiences with 100% clarity without destroying your expensive digital camera in a grenade blast.
