Wherever we go, we bring our luggage with us. And keeping our stuff in order can be a tough job on the road. Fortunately, the right luggage accessories can make a real difference. Here are five to consider.
The Ultimate Space Savers
Compression bags, also called luggage cubes or compression organizers, are great for saving space. Look for ones that pack inside themselves when you’re not using them, and are made of tough, waterproof material like ripstop nylon.
Let’s Talk about Your Feet
A shoe bag serves two purposes. First, it keeps your nice shoes away from grime and crud. And second, it keeps your dirty sneakers away from your clothes, so you can take to the trail without worrying how to clean your shoes later.
Keep Your Wet Stuff Separated
A simple toiletry bag can be incredibly handy. Even if you don’t have a lot to organize, they come with waterproof pockets and other features that keep your grooming supplies clean, orderly, and out of the rest of your bag.
You Need to Protect Your Gear
Luggage locks keep your stuff safe, of course, but they need to be the right ones. Look for TSA compliant locks made out of specific alloys, and that are designed to be opened and closed without needing to give out the combination by airport security employees.
Again, Your Feet are the Focus
Smells are going to happen, whether they’re in your shoes, on your clothes, or in your luggage. Deodorizing balls can be handy on the go, as you can just throw them in and let them do the work as you keep rolling.
