Summer is right around the corner and that means planning vacations. The key to a successful trip is in the packing. You want to make sure you include all the essentials without all the weight and space. These items don’t take up a lot of room in your suitcase and can be used for both road trips and international travel. So start packing, so you can hit the road.
Sunscreen and lip balm should be at the top of your packing list. Dermatone has SPF 30 lip balm in five flavors—Original, Mango, Coconut, Green Tea, and Pomegranate—and this SPF 50 Sunscreen is three ounces so there are no TSA issues at the airport if you’re only packing carry. Another option is the 50 SPF mineral stick which can be thrown in your travel bag and used on the go.
If you’re looking for sunglasses that fit for an active vacation, these polarized running sunglasses have a lightweight but durable frame along with lenses that reduce glare and increase visibility. If you want to add some fun to your frames these polarized champagne mirrored glasses add a splash of style to their 100% UV protection (they also come in polarized rose mirrored). If you’re looking to invest in high-quality enses, these Prizm Tungsten polarized lenses are designed to enhance color and contrast so travelers notice the smallest details.
Comfort on the Ground
For the comfort of a sneaker, but the look of a summer shoe, this Dansko sandal has the arch support and extra cushioning needed for long walks and the straps and lightweight features are good for an active adventure activity like kayaking. Plus, they are cute enough to wear at night with a fun sundress.
For sneakers, the Under Armour HOVR Omnia is breathable and comfortable, making it great for working out when traveling. The quick-drying Phantom 2 Intelliknit means you can get the shoes as muddy and dirty as you want and they are easy to wash and quick to dry. Plus, they are comfy enough to get your 10K steps in without your feet aching at the end of the day.
The Right Clothes
Packing clothes that are lightweight, quick-drying and comfortable is the key. Under Armour has a host of leggings that check all the boxes, plus they don’t take up much room in the suitcase. Whether you’re looking for high rise with plenty of stretch or heat gear that keeps you cool and comfortable, these anti-odor comfortable leggings are ideal for travel.
Royal Robbins has plenty of wrinkle-resistant pants that are quick drying and easy to remove stains (always a plus when on the road). For water-resistant durability, these pants work for active adventure during the day and casual evening dinners. The eco-conscious odor-resistant hemp pants are soft, yet durable.
Most people travel with plenty of electronics so Otterbox’s fast charge lightning to USB charging kit will come in handy at the airport or hotel.
