Family get-togethers, business trips, bachelor parties, Spring vacation, or romantic getaways, regardless of why you’re traveling, it’s important to be prepared for everything your trip can throw your way. We’ve compiled a list of everyone’s favorite travel necessities, and why we’re packing them on our next trip. So all you have to do is make your flight and enjoy a relaxing moment of peace (and yeah, maybe a beer too).
THE CARRY-ALL SET
I hate losing things, especially within a 2×3 luggage. Use the Junes bags to keep your favorite shoes away from your toiletries, away from your dirty laundry.
JUNES – $18
THE VILLA SUNGLASSES
Summer has arrived and I’d rather not be squinting at the sun every few minutes– or at the remnants of a hangover. Thus, these tortoise glasses are always at my side.
VINCERO COLLECTIVE – $125
BOMB DIGGITY WONDER SALVE
I use this balm on both my lips and my hands when they get a bit too dry from the constant hand washing.
EVERYDAY HUMANS – $9
Waking up with dead headphones or, worse, a phone when I know I’m going to be spending the whole day with my family or traveling is not a great feeling. Courant charges both, and all I have to do is drop my phone on it.
COURANT – $80
TOTO BRIEF GRANITE
Unfortunately, with the return of normalcy, comes the return of morning commutes. I use the Graf Lantz computer bag to protect my things while also looking good.
GRAF LANTZ – $288
Comfort is key, especially when traveling for more than two hours, and this upcycled hoodie is both comfortable and looks good so I can go straight from the plane to my awaiting destination.
TACT & STONE – $95
I always prefer to pack light, so every piece of clothing matters. I like this pullover because of how versatile it is– it’s casual but not overly so, and also warm enough for blooming Spring weather.
MANTRA – $138
OCA HIGH OFF-WHITE CANVAS SNEAKER
Walking around a new city can be fun, sure, but I always seem to have to balance looking good and being comfortable. I like Cariuma because of their casual look, and take on the classic cool skater sneaker.
CARIUMA – $98
SUSTAINABLE PERFORMANCE CHINO
I think chinos have gotten a bad rep, but there is nothing as semi-casual semi-dressed up as a pair of chinos. Pair with a tee or button-down, the occasion is up to you.
TACT & STONE – $145
Listen, no one wants to be THAT guy in an enclosed space. Enjoy your vacation, whether it’s active and involves hiking and biking, or it’s relaxed and simply involves you sitting on the couch.
HURON – $14
