Outside GO Carry On Essentials
5 pieces of gear that will make your next international flight a breeze.
Packing the ultimate carry on bag is no task for beginners. Let us help with a few recommendations that are proven to lower anxiety during travel and relieve stress for your easiest and most prepared packing experience yet.
OUR FAVORITE WORK HORSE DAYPACK
Patagonia Black Hole 25L
This burly daypack is the close cousin of our favorite duffle bag of the same name. With 25 liters of room for all of your carry on essentials, this is where your packing success begins. Easily fit your 15” laptop in the padded insert, utilize the zippered top pocket for your passport and phone, squeeze your water bottle into the perfectly designed side pocket, and have plenty of room left over to stuff a spare set of clothes and TSA-approved toiletries in the main compartment. With polyester ripstop and a weather-resistant finish, it doubles as the perfect hiking pack once you reach your destination.
#1 WAY TO BEAT THE TRAVEL BLUES
Eagle Creek Pack-It Compression Sac Set
Eagle Creek leads the way when it comes to conveniently sized and designed accessories for any carry on. These compression sacs give you up to 80% more packing space, which as we all know, is a huge lifesaver when it comes to packing emergency clothing supplies when traveling abroad. On the off chance your luggage gets lost in transit, you’ll have at least a day’s worth of options to choose from right there in your over-the-shoulder. Now that’s a travel hack we can get behind!
YOU'LL NEVER LOSE A CHARGE AGAIN
Enerplex Jumpr Slate 5K
The incredibly thin Enerplex Jumpr Slate 5K is our go-to for recharging phones and USB devices on the fly. The best part? Charging your phone couldn’t be easier with a tethered cable that is built seamlessly into the device. We’re also fans of the three-holed design that makes slipping this battery into a binder or travel planner a breeze. With 16 hours of chargeable talk time you’ll be set if you happen to forget your adaptor or run out of juice on your long-haul flight.
UNTANGLE YOUR TRAVEL GEAR FOR GOOD
Bellroy Essentials Pocket
Finally, the tool to end tangled travel items once and for all! This essentials pocket from Bellroy fits an iPhone Plus, your passport, and enough cash and cards to keep you going for weeks at a time. Keys, coins, and cables fit perfectly into smartly designed internal pockets, and they were even thoughtful enough to include a handy micro travel pen for filling out your customs forms. Made with all weather leather, your pocket tool will repel water and wear to keep you looking smart for miles to come.
INVEST IN A BOOK THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
We aren’t the first people to recommend a Kindle on your next flight. While we all love the feel of a worn-in paperback, there’s simply no denying that more is more. Download a number of reads from Kindle’s impressive selection of millions of authors so that when you feel like switching from fiction to non-fiction, it’s as easy as the press of a button. We especially like that although it’s technically a tablet, there’s no glare and a back-lit option for easy reading in the dark. Plus, you can adjust the text size and look up definitions on the fly. What’s not to like!
