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.
