Packing is stressful. There are people that plan, make lists, and use efficient airtight bags. And then there are people like me, who are so stressed by the thought of unzipping a suitcase, that the deed goes undone until one night before a trip. Panic ensues followed by complete and utter chaos. These people are the overpackers.
But traveling is fun (so much so that the tourism industry sees steady growth every year), so why should packing put a damper on the trip before it begins? It all starts, after all, with a bag. Grab one of these edit-approved bags when heading out on your next adventure — they will minimize stress and look great in your travel Instas.
