@lnxchk I have a highly off-topic question:

As a frequent traveler who spends a lot of time in transit, what are your packing essentials?

What's your travel luggage of choice, and what are your secret top tips for staying put-together during hectic itineraries?

Oooh. I have definitely flip-flopped on this over the years. My current kit is:

  • travelpro roller carry on. they are all but completely indestructible. i like a 4-wheel spinner vs a 2-wheel.
  • tom bihn laptop backpack. i gave up on messenger bags; they just bug my shoulders and neck too much. the tom bihns have a good amount of pockets and organization vs other brands.
  • unfortunately, the backpack doesn't have a sleeve to put it on the suitcase handle, so i have cincha belt for that, which i think i found via instagram. it's super convenient, if a little pricey. the handle loop makes all the difference.

Other than that, i have all the other usual stuff. Packing cubes in various sizes to mix and match and keep things separate if i need to for multiple destinations. Duplicates of stuff like my hairbrush and computer cable so there's always one in the suitcase. Contact lens cases for carrying small amounts of liquids instead of dealing with lots of bottles. I keep a folding Longchamp tote in the suitcase too so I don't have to think about bringing a handbag.
I'd also say, pick a method for organizing all your travel info and confirmation numbers. Our corp travel app is terrible and has screwed up my name with some of the hotels i've used, so having that confirmation number handy has been essential. I've been using TripIt for a long time to keep things together.

One other thing that's become increasingly annoying is the shear number of ride hailing apps 😂. Check which ones work in the places you're going and set them up in advance. Same with public transit apps!

Oh! And for new places, Google Maps lets you download a local map for use offline. Very handy if you're not sure of mobile service at your destination.
