Travel Gear

Here is some of the travel gear I use. I look for clothing that is not only functional, but also stylish. I also like inexpensive electronics/gadgets that can be useful while traveling.

Advice. Bring enough to make your trip a comfortable one, but no more. Traveling light is a huge benefit especially over the long term. Carrying your bags on planes, trains, buses, boats, subways, and around the city looking for your accommodations can be a pain with too much baggage. There is also the matter of checked back fees or possibly losing a bag on flights. Smart packing can avoid, or at least minimize, these issues. That said, you may find yourself wanting a few extra things for convenience, especially when first traveling for an extended time. Eventually as you travel more you will learn what you really need and what you don’t. It will be less than you think.

Brands. Uniqlo for underwear and base layers (inexpensive). Icebreaker for t-shirts (worth the money, but look for sales). Kuhl for stylish and functional clothing. Prana for comfortable clothing (pants in particular great for hiking and sitting around for hours like a bus or plane). Smartwool for socks (best fit, look, and durability). ExOfficio for underwear. Merrell for shoes/boots. Teva for sandals (I’ve heard Chaco good too).

Tip. Read the washing instructions! Generally you have to wash most of this stuff cold and either dry on low heat or not at all and instead hang dry in the shade. Otherwise, the material will be ruined and not work as well or may even stop working.
