Packing For Carry-On

GOING LIGHT

Packing light gives you a sense of freedom and independence that you just can't get from a baggage claim conveyor belt. Basically, once you travel with one pack, you'll never go back.

There's no right or wrong on 'perfect packing', but there are a few things that always make it easier. These are things like:

  • Checking the long range weather forecast
  • Writing a carefully curated gear list
  • Packing specific items for your trip activities

Avoid the 'just in case' scenario. Remember, if you've forgotten something, you can usually pick it up after you land.

HERE ARE OUR 5 TOP TIPS FOR CARRY-ON SUCCESS:

  • Be disciplined and focus on what you actually need - be ruthless!
  • Remove duplicates. Be honest, do you really need to pack 2 plain black tee's?
  • Lay everything out on your bed and check it off your list
  • Roll your gear into packing cells for maximum space efficiency
  • Then, add one more top and an extra pair of undies!

PACKING LIGHT FOR A HIKE

Once you've been on a few day-walks, and your routine is down pat, preparing for a hike gets quicker every time. Being prepared for changeable weather and unexpected events will help avoid a hike becoming a headache. It's important to go safely without overloading yourself - some additional water and an extra layer could go a long way. And remember, leave your hike details with a friend who knows where you'll be.
