ExOfficio Undergarments for Travelers

Travel pros already know there’s an art to selecting the right clothes to withstand the demands of being on the road. From non-wrinkle shirts and dresses to creating a micro-capsule wardrobe that easily mixes and matches together, there’s a solution for every situation. But undergarments are often overlooked as a travel must-have. Not all undergarments are travel-ready and require the right style and material for effortless packing and wear. ExOfficio makes it easy with quick-drying, comfortable and lightweight material. You can even wash, wring, roll and hang your undergarments while on the road for quick-drying. Here’s the run-down on which ExOfficio undergarments to choose.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
