When we travel we don’t want to be lumbered with heavy travel gear and accessories. Well I don’t anyway. What I have discovered to help me pack better and lighter is collapsable travel gear and accessories. They have been a godsend as they let me travel with more items that are compact and easy to carry. And you can use them in a variety of settings including camping, Hostelling, living in a van, take them hiking or on a picnic or even while living wherever home is. Here is my current list of collapsable travel gear and accessories which I expect will become your new best friends too.

 

Advantages of Collapsable Travel Gear and Accessories

 

I have discovered a number of advantages of collapsable travel gear and accessories. They include:

  • Space Saving – because they collapse to small things they save on space
  • Light – most of them are made from light materials like silicone which are non-toxic
  • Durable and Strong
  • Easy to move and transport because they collapse
  • Handy to have as you don’t know what is available at your next stop
  • Can be used for both hot and cold food and water
  • Easy to clean and safe to handle as they don’t break
  • Most are environmentally friendly
  • Cleaning them is a breeze, you just wash them like other items
  • Reusable, time and time again.

 

Disadvantages of Collapsable Travel Gear and Accessories

 

I haven’t really found any yet. But, I am wondering how long some of the items will last, because I am a ‘heavy user’ of my items. Meaning, they get a lot of use. I guess time will only tell.
