Flight 001

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • Cuts down on clothes wrinkling
  • Saves space
  • Easy to hang and move

The Flight 001 travel hanger is something that every man needs as he does his packing. The point of travel hangers is not just to hold up your clothing, but also to cut down on wrinkling. Most business travelers are only half done if they are looking for a good a suit. The job is to look good, not to look used.

Another benefit of a clothes hanger is that it saves space. Some people can put almost a week of shirts in one of those hanging closets. It saves space without you having to pack a carry on bag of slack filled clothes.

There are a couple of reasons they are not the answer to all your problems. It is going to be problematic if you are going to a place that still requires heavy clothing. A lot of suits without a full closet are still going to cause problems. It could also be a problem if you have a lot of bulk to pack. One suit without hangers is going to be just fine. If you start combining a couple of suits with a couple of slacks, then you are going to need a lot of space.

What should I pack for a 20 day trip?

It is often best to find a balance between packing too much and packing too little. You never want to find yourself in a bind because you forgot something essential, but at the same time you don’t want to be carrying around a heavy pack. So, how much should you really pack? It really depends on the length of your trip and the planned activities. Here are a few suggestions of items that should be in your kit:

What men should pack for a trip?

The first thing you need to decide is how long you’ll be staying. There’s no sense packing for a summer vacation if you’ll only be staying a few days. If you’re camping, you’ll need more clothes than if you were staying in a hotel. Decide where you’re staying and how long you’ll be there before you pack.

If you’re staying in a hotel, bring a toothbrush and toothpaste and anything else you need for personal grooming. Bring a couple of extra clothes too, in case there’s a spill or something gets dirty. If you’ll be driving, pack an empty bag in the trunk for dirty clothes.
