Travel backpack for men- vital travel items you need Although as a man, you might have excellent skills at planning travels and do have the best ideas for an excursion or nation to tour, packing bags could be a major concern for you. A quick and important one, travel bags do not have to be so weighty before it gets filled with the most useful items you need for your journey. Yet, this is hanging on your destination and basic preferences too! Things to note when buying a travel backpack Although it appears like an easy decision, buying a travel backpack is a bit tasking. While you have to look out for space, weight, convenience and maybe trends, you have something in mind. Though, unlike women, a man is more inclined to travel with less but heavy luggage. This is because most of the items usually included are important but not all are necessary. Thus when buying a travel backpack as a man, take note of the following; • Space There are different forms of backpacks, based on shape and size. If you need a bag with a bigger space, you might consider a suitcase. However, laptop bags are very good for a mini vacation since it has safe spaces with zips where you can keep useful things. Plus, at the side of a laptop bag, you can find a space for water bottles too! Although a spacious bag can be filled with a lot of things, your major concern should be about the items you need to include. This will help you determine the kind of backpack you need. • Size The size of a backpack is also very important. How many items your bag can contain is the focus here. Thus, the agenda for your trip will most likely determine the size of your bag. Moreover, this means that the size of a bag for a day's trip will be different from the size of a bag for three to seven days of travel. •Fashion If you are a lover of trendy items, you might want to consider a bag that is in vogue. In this case, you might overlook the size or the space because your focus is the style. Not bad, your preference is quite different which could also be a great idea. Hence, a fashionable bag could come with more space or a bigger size- good for you! • Comfort For ease, you can get a shoulder bag, a backpack, a suitcase, a tote bag or whatever. The emphasis here is if you can lift the bag conveniently even after keeping items in it. Also, your choice of carrying bags is important. While I prefer a back bag, you might prefer a shoulder bag. Whichever you decide just make that you are comfortable with it and it also defines your journey. • Price The cost of getting a backpack also influences your choice. Even if you do not agree with the space and style of a bag, you can only get one you can afford. Except you can obtain one from a friend or anyone else, which means that you will be extra careful with maintenance. • Durability How long can I use this bag? Unless you want to keep buying a backpack for every journey, you should prioritise durability when buying a bag. Just imagine that the grip of a bag falls off with your devices inside, what will happen? When you can provide answers to the question above, then you will be careful to select reliable products. This is possible by checking out product reviews, especially when buying online. Important items men should include in a travel backpack Probably you have travelled before either on a short trip or long months of holidays or business trips and realized that you forgot to add all you should have to your luggage. Thus, on arrival at your destination, you had to spend extra money to shop for items that you could have easily stuffed in your bag. Moreover, the items in a suitcase most likely reveal the purpose for travelling - either vacation, business or cultural trips, romantic escapes, adventure and so on. As this is a big deal for men, I have taken the time to analyse reviews and opinions of others just like you, to provide the best help possible. Hence, a list of essential items you need in your travel backpack is listed below: • Gadgets One of the "can't do without" items that you should travel with are your devices. Although, you might consider adding certain electronics because of their importance on the journey or at your destination. Therefore, items such as laptops, mobile phones, Mi-Fi or internet access, iPad, tablets, air pods, headsets, USB cables and a charger are highly recommended. Thus, all these gadgets can be kept in a backpack which can be carried about. Likewise, if you are on a plane or a bus, you will be able to handle your basic gadgets in your private corner. This being said, other travel items can be kept in a separate place, but you can always be with your devices. This is why it should be in a separate bag or when included with other items, you have to arrange it well to avoid damage. • Beauty care products For stylish men, skin care products are a priority. Even if you do not know, basic items such as hair cream, lotion, bathing soap or gels, deodorants, shaving cream or powder, lip balm, hand cream and foot rub are very important. • Hygiene products Items such as your toothbrush, toothpaste, hair brush, comb, shoe brush, polish, wipes and many more are the hygiene products to be included in a travel bag. Similarly, these items come in handy for men no matter their destination or travel intention. You will surely need to bathe and ensure proper body grooming during your journey. • Clothing and accessories Depending on your preference, motive and trend, clothes are grouped by category; - Beach clothing Your trip could be directed towards a seaside experience or an island tour. Thus, you need a beach hat, sunglasses, beach shorts, singlets, slides or sandals. - Corporate or official clothing This includes shirts, trousers, neckties, suits, belts, shoes, wristwatches, socks and so on. This can be useful for business events or official ceremonies. - Casual clothes Your regular t-shirts in whatever colours, sport wears, jackets, sweatshirts, mufflers, sandals, hats, shades, and face caps are all in this category of clothing. - Shoes, Sandals or slides Your backpack should have footwear if you are travelling for a while. However, a day trip might not require such except extra slippers or slides. - Underwear Singlets at least two, for vacationers with other pairs of inner clothing is also essential. - A towel Travelling with a towel is highly recommended. One for the body and a small face towel or handkerchief to wipe out sweats. • Medications If you have a pill or treatment plan prescribed or allergic reactions, then a personal first aid kit will be necessary. This includes all the important medicines you will need during your trip. Though it is often overlooked, yet a lifesaver. Plus, you can also include your pharmacy notes for a refill- just in case. • Travel documents Your passport, accommodation information, car permits, travel information, guides, maps, emergency contacts and printed details about your journey should also be in your backpack. • Bank cards This includes your visa, and debit or credit cards, which are also kept in a wallet which is stored in your bag. It will surely be useful for payments, either at shopping malls, online or wherever it is required. • Work tools or files Important work files or documents should not be left out of your travel backpack. Also, you can first arrange it all in a paper bag or file before you include them in the main bag. • Snack bags Quite important too, a snack bag is a great idea. You can stuff pastries, cookies, drinks or chocolate bars into your travel backpack. • Water Bottle To keep you hydrated, and quench your thirst at intervals too, you need a bottle of water in your backpack. You can as well buy one during your journey. Things to note when choosing items for your trip • Select clothes that are easy to maintain Since you would be wearing some clothes more than once, you should consider choosing outfits that you can wash and dry easily. Also, consider clothes that do not attract dirt or dust. Furthermore, you can also find light cotton clothing as a great option as well, plus weather conditions should be a factor in considering clothing too. • Clothes should have enough side pockets Basically, for convenience, you can include clothing with side, front and back pockets where you can keep mini items. This will be an advantage to hiding wallets and other valuables that you will require. • Arrange clothing items in order of preference Clothing items are to be arranged according to travel necessities. This means that for each day of your journey, you can group clothing so that items would not be scattered in your bags. • Highly essential items can be kept in the invisible spaces in your bags A little but crucial piece of advice would be to keep valuables in hidden spaces in your backpack. Items such as your wallet, travel documents, house and car keys, and driving license should not be kept where they can easily fall off or get damaged. • Gadgets can be kept in a separate pouch before you arrange them in the bigger suitcase Your electronic devices should be carefully placed in your bag. However, mini devices such as air pods, flash drives, USB cables and so on can be put in a separate bag, tied then included in the main backpack. • Skin and hair care products should be properly arranged, if possible two zips away from clothing. You would not want a situation where your clothes are smeared with body creams or hair products. Thus, you can either seal toiletries well, but just in case, place them in spaces away from clothes and gadgets. Laptop bags sometimes have two side spaces, where you can also put your water bottles in an upright position and carefully sealed too. • If you would be going on an adventure, add an extra bag for basic needs Two backpacks, a small and a big one are not a bad idea. This is a great alternative, especially for specific destinations. Also, it could help you with convenience and better storage space. • Group your necessities in line with your purpose for travelling Your bag weight is not an assurance that you have all the required items. Therefore, plan your journey well by creating a list of items you will need and linking it to the places you would need to tour. This would help you identify the most important things you need and leave out the ones that will just be unnecessary. In addition, you do not want to carry a heavy load which will not be useful for your journey.
