7 Herschel travel essentials you need for your next trip

Spring Break is around the corner! It's the perfect time to get yourself a plane ticket and escape from Winter one more time before Spring and Summer finally hit. Before you leave, gear up proper, cop some of our new Herschel travel essentials. It will definitely make your life easier before, during and after any trip.

It’s true! If you're already a traveler, you know how much details go into what you take with you on a trip. Long hours of transportation, living in your suitcases, carrying stuff at all times, walking a lot ... These are the realities of travelling. Honestly, as long as you have what it takes to adapt to these situations, there is no reason not to take full advantage of the days you have abroad.

Of course! It's inconceivable to go on a trip without a suitcase. No matter what type of trips you prefer and your style when it comes to suitcases, Herschel has something for everyone. Starting from the big rigid suitcase for long trips to the duffel bag all the way to the "carry on", equip yourself with a good suitcase for your next trip to make it 100 times better. Pro tip: getting a suitcase that’s easy to spot (like the pink one below) will help finding your stuff quicker at the baggage claim.

DUH! You obviously need a backpack for any trip you’re taking! As a tourist, you always have a variety of things to carry around. Water and other beverages, documents of all kinds, currency, snacks, camera, warm clothes, etc. You will have your backpack with you often during your trip, so make sure you get one that’s comfortable and that has enough storage space for all your belongings. Herschel bags have it all, in addition to being really stylish. These will easily become your go-to.

Because walking all day long in a new city with a big backpack isn't always the best option to make the most of your time abroad. As you probably know, traveling means walking a lot, so avoid having too heavy of a load on your shoulders. Herschel Shoulder Bags are light, practical and compact, but big enough to hold all of your essentials for a day. Don't forget to add one in your suitcase before you go!

Savvy travelers know that dragging wet or damp clothes in their suitcases can 1, stink and 2, contaminate the rest of the clothes in the suitcase with a foul odor and a slimy feeling. Since travelling also means not always having access to a washer and dryer, avoid unpleasant surprises when you return from your trip and get a Dry Bag and/or a Laundry Bag. Same goes for your dirty shoes, put em in the Shoe Bag! You no longer have to worry about drying your clothes or cleaning your shoes before putting them back in your suitcase, throw them in the bags and you're good to go. This is seriously one of the most essential items for a trip, especially where it's hot!

Our favorite Herschel accessory for the plane: The Amenity Pack. This cool little surprise bag contains everything you need to transform the uncomfortable feeling you get when sitting in an airplane seat for 8 hours into smooth and cozy relaxation vibe. Including a sleep mask, comfortable slippers, an airplane cushion and earplugs, the person on the seat next to you won't ever be able to penetrate your Zen bubble. A must for any flight you're boarding. You may even start to enjoy the in-flight part of your trip as much or even more than the rest! Well maybe not... But almost!

This one will make your everyday life so much easier while on a trip. Don’t lose precious time finding out what kind of power outlet they are using where you’re going. Simply bring this travel adapter and you’ll be sure to have access to electricity while in a foreign country. Other than an adapter for every type of outlets you can find on our beautiful planet, this baby also features USB ports and multiple plugs so you’ll be able to charge all your electronic devices at the same time and be ready and charged up for your bus ride the next the morning.

As stupid as it sounds, this is a true essential for any trip where its sunny. Even if you have a lot of hair, we’re not used to the sun that they have down South, so please don’t forget to bring some kind of Hat with you on your next adventure. To avoid getting a sunburn on top of your head, heat exhaustion and ultimately, skin problems, get your hands on a good Herschel hat. You’ll be happy to have it when the sun starts blazing on a tropical early afternoon.
