Packing light is skill that is surprisingly difficult task to master. Aside from knowing exactly which essentials to pack, picking the right bag can also be difficult. Check out this list of three tips for packing light for travel, and learn to master the art of light packing.

Having a reliable and durable carry-on is key, but it can be difficult to ensure your bag’s dimensions comply with airline regulations and comfortably accommodate your things. Generally speaking, most major airlines require overhead luggage to be no larger than 22” high by 14” wide by 9” deep.

2. Have a go-to “list”

All professionals need a go-to list for quick travel trips. The following is a list of light-packing suggestions for the average on-the-go man; consider making one similar for yourself:

  • Ankle socks
  • Light wool socks
  • Silk sock liners
  • Belt
  • Lightweight travel underwear
  • Undershirts (tank tops or t-shirts)
  • T-shirt
  • Dress shirts
  • Dress slacks
  • Sports coat
  • Jeans/Khakis
  • Dress shoes
  • Tennis shoes
  • Tie

Don’t forget to pack the essential toiletries, either, and remember to keep all liquids under 3.4 ounces.

3. Pack efficiently  

One of the key factors of packing efficiently is knowing your travel itinerary. If you have an extra day or time to kill, you can pack a little less diligently as you’ll likely have time to press and iron your clothing. However, if you’ve got a tight schedule, be sure to pack with care and efficiency in mind. Keep clothes you’ll be wearing immediately post-flight or post-travel close at hand as well as any toiletries you’ll need to freshen up. Remember, too, that traveling can often involve unexpected delays, so it’s best to be prepared.
