Hello there travellers My name is Marko i’m Alex and together we are the Vagabrothers today we’re talking travel tips! how to pack the right clothes for your trip doesn’t matter how long your trip is, it could be a week, month, year…whatever the packing list is the same And we always manage to fit all of our clothes plus our camera gear in to one carry-on size bag now the key is to bring enough outfits to change your outfits every single day or to wear the same shirt and just change your city everyday gross dude, put that down no the key is to get simple light weight material clothes that you can hand wash and use in a wide variety of climates so today we’re going to show you the clothes that we wore on our six month, six continent Biggest Baddest Bucket list trip which took us everywhere from the glaciers of Iceland to the sands of Arabia that’s right! First we’re gonna talk material okay, rule of thumb avoid cotton where possible and dress in lightweight synthetic materials they breathe well, they pack down small, you can wash ’em in the sink and hang them over the dryer over night now it’s a little bit more expensive then regular clothes but it’s a really worthwhile investment especially if you plan on doing a little bit of travelling there’s tons of companies out there that offer similar products we chose Patagonia because of their high quality material lifetime guarantees, good style and sound corporate ethics! okay so lets go through clothing, item by item, starting with shirts our go-to travel shirts are these long sleeve, button down, 50% polyester and 50% nylon super breathable, it also got UV protection and if its really hot you can always roll the sleeves up and for casual settings either bring a short sleeve button down shirt or another long sleeve and they don’t all have to be plaid hey shut up, PLAID is RAD! but you should bring 3 shirts in total, that’s the point plus it never hurts to bring a T-Shirt we recently got hooked up by these La Paz shirts really cool travel company we like their designs but we also recommend bringing a synthetic t-shirt Underarmor and Patagonia make these they quick dry, they also double for running gear or rash guards if you’re surfing next up, pants! girls, you probably already know this but some guys don’t when you choosing your pants, make sure that match your shirt and you make outfits we chose Khaki, super versatile colour and it never gets dirty okay, you should also bring a pair of shorts and a swimsuit the shorts are good even though Europeans don’t wear them they’re great for hot days and the board shorts or our swimsuits are good for running as well swimming now we also found out there’s this new hybrid clothing by Rip Curl, it’s called The Boardwalk [The Boardwalk] they basically shorts made out of swimsuit material so it’s great for two for one and you can always go comando now ladies don’t look to us for advice
on pantys but boys we do recommend that you get three pairs of these Exofficio quick dry boxer
briefs you can hand wash ’em and they dry
overnight plus they breathe so well that you don’t have to change them for a week what are you doing Mark? i always wanted to be an underwear model you put your pants back on! sorry! next up, shoes! the most common packing mistake is bringing too many pairs of damn shoes oh my God, shoes! we only brought one pair of trail runners because they are comfy enough for the city, they’re strong enough for hiking and they’re made for running we also brought a pair of sandals made by Teva or Sanuk they’re super loungeable, plus when you throw ’em on with a pair of jeans and a button-down shirt, you can dress up with them they’re also really easy to pack now last, bring some socks three different colors so you know which ones are clean and which ones are dirty last but not least, dressing in layers now it’s a pretty simple concept instead of bringing one big bulky jacket you bring layers of clothing that you can take off or put on depending on the weather now we brought these two things, a Nano Puff jacket and a basic lightweight shell, both from Patagonia they combine to keep us super warm and dry in any climate [plus] and they can pack [?] really really small super small, but last but not the least the most important accessory is this, it is a quick dry towel it’s designed for backpacking this will save you cash, at hostels they
charge you for towels buy one of these and be a happy camper and don’t forget your sunglasses and a hat so as you can see, we pack light because we keep it simple and bring only the essentials, so if you have to
ask yourself do I really need this chances are you wont and if you do, you can probably buy it on the road so take half the clothes you think you
need and twice the amount of cash those are our travel tips tell us yours leave a little comment in the box below or tweet us @vagabrothers and remember subscribe to our channel for new travel videos every Tuesday okay, we’ll see you on the road later [previous video inset] we’re going to cover a wide variety of topics from the most basic, like how to pack your bag, where to go and how to get there, to more complex questions like how to study or work abroad and some tips on how to learn a new language so lets started with the most basic question why travel?
