5 carry-on es­sen­tials for trav­el­ers who love to pack light

Miami Herald (Sunday) - - Travel - New York Times

With bag­gage fees and flight de­lays on the rise, carry-on travel has be­come more sur­vival tac­tic than life­style choice. Be­yond sav­ing money, fly­ing with only a carry-on pre­vents bags from get­ting lost and of­fers more flex­i­bil­ity in case of can­cel­la­tion, as planes are grounded by weather that poses no threat to a train, bus or car. Pack­ing a whole trip’s worth into a small bag can be a chal­lenge, but gets eas­ier with the right ac­ces­sories. Here are a few ideas.

Anker Pow­erPort 4: Al­though this mul­ti­port

USB charger is about the size and price of a reg­u­lar iPad charger, it can charge up to four de­vices at once.

Mata­dor Freerain24: Com­pressed, the Freerain24 oc­cu­pies only as much space as a balled up pair of socks, yet it un­folds into a full-size, wa­ter­proof back­pack once un­packed.

Tor­tuga Out­breaker: If you’re com­fort­able car­ry­ing loads, a travel back­pack fits about 33 per­cent more stuff into the same ex­ter­nal di­men­sions as a four­wheel, carry-on suit­case.

Osprey StraightJacket 8L: Stuff­ing clothes into a com­pres­sion sack be­fore pack­ing them into a larger bag helps max­i­mize ca­pac­ity. How­ever, com­pres­sion causes wrin­kles, so pack ac­cord­ingly.

Hy­d­away: A col­lapsi­ble 18-ounce bot­tle pro­vides all the hy­dra­tion you need, with none of the pack­ingspace penalty of a reg­u­lar wa­ter bot­tle.
