Travel – love it or hate it? Long journeys or short journeys? For work or pleasure? However you travel you’ll want to do it with ease and in style.
For the ultimate travel fashion Helly Hansen provides a range of ladies and men’s easy to wear ultra practical but super stylish clothing and footwear.
Their men’s Rask Hooded Jacket (£90) is lightweight and ideal for those cooler times when travelling, or try the Shore Jacket (£110) for waterproof material. Easy to wear fashion can be done with their Naiad Skirt, (£40), this skirt can be adjusted and is pull on, with convenient pockets too.
Being on the move can be particularly hard on your feet so ensure you wear the right socks, try Bridgedale’s TrailBlaze cushioned socks, £16.49 from www.bridgedale.com Comfortable feet are must and Helly Hansen have the perfect solution with their Mens Rossnes Casual Shoes, £80, visit www.hellyhansen.com
Travelling can mean being prepared for all different weathers so a reliable pair of sunglasses are vital when getting about, for guys go for Maui Jim’s Sand Island frames (£299). For ladies the Sandy Beach frames (£159) are sporty but chic at the same time, both from www.mauijim.com
One of the worst things when travelling is having to carry your essentials around, a strong but lightweight rucksack is a necessity.
The RuitBag Crush (£39) is the solution, all RiutBags have external zips against your back, to almost eliminate the risk of theft whilst you’re wearing the bag. The RiutBag is only 230 grams and made from tough rip-stop nylon, can hold 10 litres, and can completely fold away into a little pouch, allowing you to add and take away space whenever you need, available from www.riut.co.uk
A key to being comfortable when travelling is keeping clean but this isn’t always easy when on the move. Take Merci Handy hand gel (£2.90 from Topshop and Selfridges), with you to help keep bacteria away, and try water free washing with Zerreau Towel Off Shampoo (£7.95) from Superdrug. Wash Wizard Sponges are a complete body wash sponge by just adding a dash of water, no need for rinsing, £7.99 for 5 sponges from www.amazon.co.uk Odaban Spray will help keep you fresh travelling, one application can last for up to seven days making it one of the most impressive solutions on the market for excessive sweat, £10.49 from Boots and leading pharmacies.
Towels can take up a lot of space and be annoyingly bulky so a Hamman Towel is the answer, thin but highly absorbent, try Papillon Vert’s Premium Hamman Towel (£20) from www.lepapillonvert.co.uk Stay hydrated with the Corkcicle Canteen Flask, £29.99 from www.firebox.com or if you are thinking something a little stronger try Zippo’s Hip Flask (what you put in it is up to you!), £16.75 at www.zippo.co.uk
