Pack for a Winter Vacation

To prepare for a winter vacation is something noticeable. Overall, travelers don’t need to bring so much stuff along with. It is said that simple is the best when traveling. So just take the most necessary stuff, especially for winter vacation like hats, shoes, gloves, clothing... Besides, travelers have smart choices for the type of these items.

Some tips below might help you have a good convenient winter trip.

Hats - Staying warm with your hats

As known that your ears are especially necessary to keep warm in winter. Therefore, travelers mustn’t ignore the attention to this item for your vacation. Just choose a good travel hat with the following features: 

- That hat needs to covers all your ears and partly the back of your neck.

- It has no flaps, fluffballs or any unnecessary mass.

- This is a hat made of thin, modern materials and ensures to keep warm best.

Shoes - Your One Heavy Item

Given that your feet are on the front line of most weather you will encounter, this is the one area that I recommend you be unafraid to go big. A solid, decent-looking pair of low-frills winter boots that you wear right onto the airplane will come through for you again and again during a winter trip.

Requirements for good winter travel shoes:

- Weatherproof -- Gore-Tex gear can be pretty styling these days

- Light on lacing -- you still need to get through security, so a pair of shoes or boots that can be worn loosely and don't require a lot of tying and untying will help

- Dark colored, so they won't show stains from mud, slush or getting thrown on filthy security belts

There are plenty of decent, affordable boots that hold up well enough to hike through the snow in, but look good enough to wear to dinner; find them and wear them when you walk out the door for the airport.

Gloves - Thin, Light, Breathable and Waterproof

Have some requirements for your travel gloves. Your gloves are thin, light, breathable and waterproof as possible. With these characteristics, travelers get more and more convenient as the breathability makes them wearable across a wide temperature range, the waterproofing makes them useful in the worst weather, and the tight packaging makes them very low impact both when packing and when carrying them around.

Clothing -Morning Paper Trick for Layering Up

Almost every collection of tips on how to dress/pack/stay warm/etc. in winter includes advice to dress in layers -- which sounds great, but how do you go about it? Where do you start, and where do you stop? Without a plan, you could layer yourself up until you look like the Michelin man. To get a handle on how to pick and choose from the clothes you already own, try this trick.

When traveling during winter, use a "morning paper" approach to figure out what to pack:

- Light long- or short-sleeve shirt (or T-shirt) for reading the paper indoors

- Long-sleeve top over that for grabbing the paper from the stoop

- Fleece (or sweater, though wool tends to be bulky) over that for getting the paper from the curb

- Light wind- and waterproof outer shell over that for getting the paper from the curb in the rain

If you pack such that you can get the paper in any weather, and then add and remove items as you go in and out of doors, you will have enough and the right clothes to layer up for pretty much any weather you will encounter, indoors or out.

Some Accessories to Consider

- Polarized sunglasses: Even weaker winter sunlight, when reflected off snow, can be rough on your eyes. In addition, the sun is lower in the sky, so is more likely to be in your line of sight or become a problem when driving during the short daylight hours. In those conditions, polarized glasses perform extremely well.

- Sunscreen: Sunscreen in winter? Absolutely. A windburn, or a sunburn from the reflection off of snow or ice, is every bit a rival of a summer sunburn.

- Lower-body base layer: If you are going to be spending extended time outdoors, consider packing a base layer to keep your legs comfortable in the cold. They are harder to shed than a top layer, but don't take up much packing space and are essential if you'll be outside for hours at a time.

- In harsher weather, a scarf can be a small and light but very effective addition.

Avoid bring your favorite stuff but not necessary

Don't carry unnecessary stuff

For example, an oversized black wool jacket is what you always take along with but it account for a half-space of a suitcase. If you insist on carrying it, it has no space for other stuff. Just consider bringing when your suitcase has empty space after putting all necessary items for your travel

Hope these guide, travelers have their best preparation to get every destination.
