In a climate as volatile as a desert climate, it can be difficult to know what to pack. Hot days followed by cool nights can have even the most adept traveler struggling with fitting everything into an easy-to-carry day pack. But if a trip to this dry climate is in your future, don’t forget these necessities.


Moisturizing Products

Deserts are dry, but you won’t realize how dry until your hair begins to feel like straw. Be sure to pack moisturizing hair balm, lip balm, hand lotion, face wash and day cream to preserve moisture in your hair and skin.


Quick-Dry Clothing

Hot temperatures lead to hot body temperatures, which lead to sweat. Quick-drying materials mean your clothes will dry properly before the major drop in temperature.


Lots of Water

This should be a no-brainer, but bring as much water as you can comfortably carry. In fact, think about the amount you think you’ll need, and then add about 25 to 30 percent. Also if you’re visiting with a car or van, toss in a gallon or two extra.


Sun Protection

This goes beyond sunscreen. Protect yourself with a hat that shades your face, sunglasses and even a scarf to wrap around your face if desert sands start to blow.



Heat during the day and cold temps at night are common in the desert, so make sure you pack clothes for both types of weather.
