I use to use a Rowenta travel brush/steamer, but it didn't seem to put out a good quantity of steam. Then I went to a Jiffy commercial type floor model, which was okay, although delivery was somewhat inconsistent, but it was so cumbersome that I dreaded using it. My wife recently picked up a black hand held model, about the size of a coffee-carafe. I think it says "E-steam" on it, but I'm not sure. This hand held model is fantastic. It puts out just as much steam as the large machine, but is substantially more compact. We take it on trips, treat it pretty roughly, and we've never had a problem.
