As Threaded Gents we travel for many reasons, from pleasure and family, to business. As a globe trotter, one of the most frustrating things is standing at a carousel, waiting for luggage. There is a solution to this problem: only take hand luggage. The Threaded Man has a few great tips to help you travel lightly.

Relax and Arrive Refreshed


One of the worst things about flying, is arriving at your destination looking tired. Sleeping on a flight can be really hard, but it’s important so that you look your best when you land. To help you on the sleep front, invest in a velvet eye mask and headphones as these will block out noise and light, make you relax and help you catch some shut eye.

Garment Bag


If you’re travelling to several destinations, or you’re planning a long stay, a garment bag is essential. It’s the perfect item to help you separate your luggage, and it will keep your clean clothes from your dirty ones.

The Washbag


When you travel to different environments and climates, it affects your skin, so it’s Unknown-2important to be prepared. We recommend that you use Sebamed Liquid Face and Body Wash, and their Moisturising Cream. The cream is great for travelling as it has a pH of 5.5 and Vitamin E, which gives you skin the help it needs.

A Portable Charger


Being connected is vital in the fast-paced world we live in, so what you can’t have when you’re travelling, is a dead battery. Keep a portable charger with you so that you can avoid the frustration and keep your loved ones up to date.

These are basic, must-have items you should carry with you to help take the stress out of your journey. Is there something that frustrates you when you travel? Tell us your story by tweeting us @TheThreadedMan.
