How to prepare for a trip

The ultimate guide to packing efficiently

Though travelling and a global pandemic won’t go hand in hand for another while, you can always dream up our next getaway. Once you’ll embark on it, you’ll want to be perfectly prepared. Our mission is to put your mind at ease wherever you travel, from local to far-flung destinations, and to make sure your journeys run smoothly every step of the way. For your future travels to be as seamless as possible—and hassle-free, of course—we’ve compiled some of our favourite ways to prepare for a trip

Carry luggage tags

Our products are made to last a lifetime, and wherever your travels might take you, you will want to avoid losing your luggage. The solution? Luggage tags. Featuring an adjustable strap, finished with hand-stitching, and equipped with an inlay card for your contact information, our naturally tanned luggage tags absorb every trace of your life to build a patina that evolves beautifully over time, making the tags unique testimonies of all your travels.

Check airline allowances

Travelling heavy? Escaping daily life for longer than two weeks? In order for your belongings to arrive at your destination safely and sound, carrying the right suitcase is one thing—complying with airline allowances, the other. Engineered in Germany with a variety of smart features, such as compression pads to help you get more into your luggage, our H7 Suitcase is not just our largest model, but has the largest luggage size accepted by airlines as standard checked baggage. You’re welcome.

Use packing cubes

If you’re a frequent traveller, you know the importance of packing cubes. Allowing you to keep your luggage neat and tidy, our set of four packing cubes are incredibly lightweight and perfectly fit into your suitcase. There’s even a wet cube that comes with waterproof lining, ensuring any wet items won’t spread to the rest of your belongings.

Prevent your clothes from wrinkling in your suitcase

You have arrived at your destination, checked into your accommodation, and feel ready to head out—only to realize that your clothes are wrinkled. We’ve all been there. Whether you’re a roller or a folder, compressing your clothes in a packing cube keeps them wrinkle-free, while see-through mesh helps you find what you’re looking for at a glance.

Pack your T-shirts right

There are many other space-saving hacks you can make use of, such as packing heavier items, such as shoes, at the bottom of your suitcase to ensure other items aren’t squashed or creased. When it comes to clothing, opt to roll items rather than fold them. Not only does rolling clothes save a surprising amount of space, but it also makes it much easier to keep track of what you’ve packed.
