Packing Tips For Men: 2 Weeks in Europe
I just returned from a brief 2 week holiday in Europe. Whether I’m packing for a two weeks or six, I still manage to pack into a carry on bag. Mobility and traveling light is key for me and here is what I manage to get into my carry on luggage. I start with a flexible and versatile travel closet where I can mix and match. Nine outfits can be made from 3 tops x 3 trousers. I can make 16 outfits outfits of 4 tops x 4 trousers. I layer in some merino wool jumpers for warmth and to change things up a bit. Also, traveling light with apparel that is wrinkle resistant, quick drying and with many other technical features helps not only lighten the load but makes doing laundry very easy when traveling.
- 3 Oxford Shirts (Wrinkle Resistant)
- 2 Trousers (1 pair of black slacks for dinner, 1 pair of walking trousers)
- 3 T-Shirts (Light, Quick Drying)
- 3 Underwear
- 3 Socks
- Running/Workout/Lounging Trousers
- 1 Fleece Hoodie
- 2 Merino Wool Jumpers
- 1 Waterproof Jacket (Spring in Europe is still rainy)
- Walking Shoes
- Laundry Kit
- Medical Kit
- Personal Kit for the Airplane
When packed properly into my Eagle Creek Pack-it Cubes and Folder, it all turns into these shapes. Now everything fits comfortably in my carry on and personal bag. No need to check a bag!
On the plane I wore this…
Avoid the travel costume. One can still look good and feel good while packing light!
