Who doesn’t love a trip involving non-stop activities? While planning such a trip sounds fun, many find themselves wishing they had prepared better for the trip when the time actually comes to leave. Those embarking on a more active-focused trip this year should consider these three travel essentials to make life a bit easier.


Able Carry Backpacks

These Hong Kong-designed backpacks are separated into categories depending on your needs. In addition to commuting to work and school backpacks, this brand also features backpacks specifically designed as a carry-on for airplanes. The Max Backpack includes practical organization, a tough and water-resistant build, comfort when wearing and nearly 8 gallons of space. Well-padded shoulder straps, a ventilated back panel and a handy magnetic sternum strap makes carrying this bag more enjoyable and encourages wearers to venture further than they might otherwise.


Able Carry also has a backpack for just the essentials, aptly named the Thirteen Daybag. This bag is perfect for outdoor daily adventures, with a minimalist design and dedicated pocket for laptops up to 13 inches. This bag also includes a hidden card holder on the left shoulder strap for easy access and a discreet back pocket for essentials. Made with U.S.-made, X-Pac fabric.
