Packing a carry-on luggage can appear to be tedious, but it is actually a lot easier than it looks. Just follow ourtravel hacks onhow to pack for a flight and your bag will be ready to go in no time!

Choose the right bag
First of all, pick a bag that matches the purpose of your travel. Determine the bulk of items you are carrying –  if you are packing books and laptop, a laptop bag likePacsafe Intasafe Brief Anti-Theft 15″ Laptop Bag would be wise. It is sleek, professional looking and has compartments to store your laptops and valuables like your passport. If your items take up a lot of space, such as clothing, consider using a backpack likePacsafe Vibe 40 Anti-Theft 40L Carry-On Backpack. It is versatile, has ample storage space and meets most airline requirements. Both bags come with anti-theft features such as the eXomesh Slashguard — a stainless steel wire mesh built discreetly between fabrics that form a secure layer — to protect all your belongings from cut and slash thieves!

Separate your necessities
Pack your necessities such as your passport, air ticket and a pen in an easy to access compartment. This makes it convenient for you to reach them and will help you keep your items organized at the same time. To ensure they are safe, invest in a good travel bag likePacsafe Metrosafe LS250 Anti-Theft Shoulder Bag which comes with internal and external organization with multiple compartments and extra protection like the Lockabout security clip that acts like a padlock to secure the zippers. Besides, this feature also provides the first line of defence against cunning thieves from stealing your stuff. Aside from that, this shoulder bag also packed an adjustable, wire-reinforced Carrysafe Slashguard strap to prevent cut-and-run theft.

In-flight entertainment
Flights can be boring, especially if you’re flying long haul. To help kill boredom, pack some entertainment such as your favorite book or update your music library and plug-in noise cancellation headphones. Store them in a convenient, compact bag likePacsafe Vibe 325 Anti-Theft Cross Body Pack. This lightweight bag is ideal for your essentials and comes with multiple compartments for easy access, including an internal padded iPad sleeve! You don’t ever have to worry about losing your items as the anti-theft features such as the PopNLock security clip that allows you to attach your bag to a secure fixture like a chair and padlock it. Now you don’t have to worry about bag snatchers and gear thieves! The hidden eXomesh slashguard, a stainless steel wire mesh that’s embedded into the bag, also helps protect against slash-and-run thefts.

Dress comfortably
Plane rides can be cold due to air conditioning and high altitudes. It’s particularly colder during night flights! To keep yourself warm, dress in cozy materials that you can move around and sleep in. Tip: Layering on the thick clothing will save you a lot of baggage room!

Follow the rules
It’s best to double-check on the airline rules when it comes to what you can bring onboard. Each airline has a size and weight limit when it comes to baggage and only a certain amount of liquid is allowed. Remember to pack travel size toiletries or take measurements to avoid getting caught up at customs!
