The skill of packing a carry-on bag is something that the La Pochette team have perfected over years of travel as frequent flyers. So where to start?
Regardless of whether you favour a cabin approved suitcase, oversized tote or backpack you still need to meet weight restrictions from your airline so choosing the contents wisely is as important as the bag itself. A good focus to start with is the journey itself; create a seamless airport experience through the organisation of your travel documents into a wallet and ensure its easily accessible for security and check points. The Anywhere Everywhere wallet’s scratch free see through structure and slim silhouette is perfect for easy retrieval.
Then, make sure your in-flight experience is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Staying hydrated on the plane is imperative so ensure you have a re-usuable bottle tucked away in your carry on to fill up post security and carry on with you, our water bottle is lightweight to save space in your bag with a wide opening for easy refills.
We’ve also recently discovered 'JetFuel' sachets, 'travel hacks' which have you feeling your best post-flight and during your trip. Divided into three specialized supplements - energy-boosting 'Performance', soothing 'Rest' and 'Health' for overall well-being - each dose is loaded with vitamins, minerals, botanicals and bacterial cultures. It's a game-changer for frequent flyers and can be popped into your La Pochette water bottle.
At your seat, fill a pouch with everything you need to access mid-flight and tuck it into the seatback pocket or stow under your seat so you don’t have to keep retrieving from the overhead storage bin. The large Anywhere Everywhere is the perfect home for your ear plugs, eye mask, flight socks, travel scarf and pens for pesky immigration forms. For longer flights, take extra clothes to freshen up before touchdown and store dirty clothes in the antimicrobial Sweat bag, guaranteed to keep bacteria and odours at bay.
Finally, let’s talk about the worst-case scenario. There’s always a possibility your checked luggage may not make it to your destination when you do. So, make sure you board with anything that would make it less of a headache to spend a day or two waiting to be reunited with your belongings, like your power converter and all of your chargers. A day or two of toiletries stored in TSA friendly silicone bottles should see you through and ensure you don’t miss a second of your time on the beach by packing swimwear and a lightweight towel from Anaskela. These sustainable towels are crafted from recycled materials, compact and quick drying and come in their own pouch for perfect packability.
