Guide to Travelling Light

Essential Guide to Travelling Light

When it comes to travelling, we know just how important it is to find the perfect set of clothing as well as a piece of luggage to store all your essential items. Whether you’re heading away for a couple of nights and need some light clothes or are looking for a new everyday bag to help on your way, our handy guide has a few different scenarios covered.

 

Travelling Light Festival Camp

Festivals

Planning on attending a festival over the summer? If so, packing light is an absolute must! Deciding what and what not to take can often be tricky but clamping down can help save you a ton of hassle in the long run. Must-haves such as tents, camping furniture, and sleeping bags will no doubt take up the majority of room when travelling, so be sure to opt for small items of luggage to help save space (and energy). But what about clothes? T-shirts and shorts are a must-have for both men and women at festivals. Easy to pack and lightweight, you can pack a few of each without taking up too much space in your bag. If the sun is especially bright, make sure you don't forget a trendy pair of sunglasses.

Hiking and Outdoor Adventures

Perfect for more active use, certain rucksacks are designed to provide optimum comfort while exploring outdoors. Featuring padded cushioning, breathable material composition, and even plenty of room for hydration packs and water bottles, these durable yet spacious rucksacks are sure to help you reach your chosen destination in style. Cargo shorts are ideal for hikes as they're breathable and comfortable, and also give you enough room to store items on your journey. Wearing a fleece is also a great idea at they take up little room when packed away in a bag, but will keep you warm if you get chilly.

Going Abroad?

Cabin cases are the perfect in-between size for those still looking to travel light, but with a little more added space. Featuring telescopic handles and double wheels for easy maneuverability, they are sure to help you get from A to B with ease. Cabin cases can be used for week long holidays, and even longer, just make sure you pre-plan all your outfits and have some items that can be re-worn so you don't panic and over-pack.

Days at the Beach

When the sun is shining, it can be hard to resist taking advantage of the heat by traveling to the beach. When those days inevitably come, we have what you need. If you want some fresh food, you can't go wrong with bringing along an incredibly handy cooler bag. Cooler bags will keep food and drink fresher for longer, and the number of storage options ensures you can bring enough grub for the entire family. Beach totes are ideal for trips to the sea, the wide design makes them easy to fill with seaside essentials. All you need is some lightweight swimwear, a towel, sandals, sun cream, and maybe a jumper if you're planning to stay till the evening.

We hope this guide has given you some ideas for what to grab for a variety of trips. If you're still looking for more lightweight clothes or something to store your belongings, check out our entire Clothing and Accessories Department.
