Packing for a long trip can be one of the most exciting experiences, as it is all part of the adventure that lies ahead. However, sometimes, even if you love to travel, you may still be unsure of what to pack and how much. Spending a few minutes before the flight to throw in a few random items can make the trip more difficult and troublesome. Therefore, it is essential to get prepared well in advance and learn what constitutes a travel essential for men. While the advice may change depending on the destination, there are a few key items you will always need to consider for longer trips. Within this article, you will find four of the most practical essentials to ensure your journey goes smoothly.
SUITABLE TRAVEL PACK OR LUGGAGE
Travel packing is much easier once you have found the perfect travel backpack or luggage for the job. It is important to understand travel luggage is a personal matter and what works for you may not work for others. This is why, you will need to pick your ideal travel luggage based on a few factors. For example, you will need to think about your travel style, whether that is luxury, backpacker, or somewhere in between. Consider your fitness level, as you may have to wander around a city carrying your bag on your back.
COMFORTABLE TRAVEL SHOES
Finding comfortable and reliable travel shoes for men should be a top priority when preparing for a longer trip. For example, CrepStars is a leading footwear brand, that has revolutionised the slipper market. Their travel shoes for men are the perfect choice to keep you fresh after a long day of travel. As they are designed with style and comfort in mind, your feet will be supported and balanced while walking through airports and exploring new destinations. Thanks to their memory foam inner sole, these travel shoes provide unbeatable durability and versatility.
MOISTURISER TO COMBAT DRYNESS
Even if you don’t use a moisturiser at home, long trips and sleep deprivation can wreak havoc on your skin. However, out of all skincare products for men, a decent moisturiser is probably the most important one. To prevent your skin from getting dry and itchy, bring a bottle of moisturiser with SPF, which will protect you from sun damage. Then you can use it every morning and evening to take care of rough spots. You will need to choose a suitable moisturiser based on your skin type, to help you reduce the ageing process and combat the effects of environmental stress.
HIGH QUALITY EARBUDS
Earbuds are a must-have item that most travellers forget at home, which may make your flight seem longer than it is. Be sure to pack your earbuds so that you can listen to music, an audiobook, or your favourite podcast. You may even want to watch a movie during a longer flight. Also, although big headphones are quite popular right now, they can be quite bulky. If you bring high quality earbuds on your trip, you will save room in your luggage and still have a great experience.

I’m still looking for that perfect travel bag for the flight, I keep buying different ones!
So do I! It’s a struggle haha 😂 thank you so much for reading love ❤️
I like a good backpack, anything else seems to throw my body off balance and I end up feeling twisted or lopsided after a long day walking. A collapsible water bottle is also a great addition in my kit 😀
Oh you definitely need a water bottle in your bag at all times and if it’s collapsible, it’s even better! Thank you so much for reading ☺️
I feel Comfortable Clothing is also important.
So true! Thank you so much for reading ☺️
Great tips! Thanks for sharing.
Unfortunately, I’m unable to travel long distance due to financial constraints but travelling is on my bucket list and I’m sure I will get to experience a nice holiday somewhere, some day.
With regards to travel luggage, I would like to buy a plain hard case travel bag and everytime I visit a new place I’d like to place a sticker from that destination on the outside of my bag. And my goal is to slowly fill up my bag full off travel stickers. That and it would also make spotting my bag so much easier on that belt that goes round and round with luggage on it. 😃
Thank you so much! Sounds like a great idea for multiple different reasons, not only will it be memorable but it will also be very practical when travelling 👍🏼
The comfort that comes with having comfortable shoes and a good backpack is unexplainable. The freedom that accompanies light backpack is on another level altogether.
That’s very true! Thank you so much for reading ☺️
I enjoyed your post. Personally I would go for a backpack and some decent walking boots. But I am not used to travel very much.
Thank you so much! Decent walking boots are very important so it’s a great choice 🙌🏼
