I’m just going to level with you about a few things. First of all, I didn’t forget to pack anything. (Come on, guys, this is me.) But there have been a distinct list of items that have proven especially useful that I feel like others may forget to pack or think they don’t need.
If you’re living out of a carry-on bag and traveling for any extended length of time – likely between multiple seasons – it’s important that your travel wardrobe is especially versatile. It has to keep you both warm and cool. It has to be functional agains the elements. It has to be comfortable and fashionable and accommodate a variety of activities. Perhaps most important, it has to fit.
