Gadget Guru: Floxsee Tri-View Folding Travel Mirror

The Floxsee tri-fold mirror can let you see 180 degrees around your head when styling.

All of you, why not see all of you? Think of a mirror that lets you see yourself nearly full length, provides a panoramic view for fastidious grooming, and fits into a carryon bag. It folds of course — and it’s acrylic instead of glass, but we’re talking portable, not perfect. Hang the Floxsee Tri-fold Mirror vertically on a door by its adjustable-height hook, and the three hinged panels form a nearly full-length mirror when you step back a bit. Flip the Floxsee into horizontal mode — set on a table or hanging via its twin telescoping stainless steel handles — and the panels adjust for a 180-degree view around your head as you get your ‘do just so.

The plastic-backed mirror panels fold down into an easily stashable 12.5-inch by 7.75-inch by 1.5-inch-deep rectangle that weighs about 3 pounds. Your acrylic reflection won’t be as sharp as glass, and at some angles you can expect some distortion. But I can think of many stark motel rooms — and dare I admit, tents — where a Floxsee might have helped me look better than my accommodations.

Floxsee Tri-fold Tri-View Travel Mirror is $69.95 at www.floxsee.com
