1883 Magazine

Always on the go here at 1883 we know the importance of packing right. We sat down with luggage brand TUMI who know a thing or two about global travel.

As a brand that spends their time establishing the ultimate concept, design and function of luxury travel essentials and accessories, they have put together 14 of the ULTIMATE packing tips that are sure to get your trip off to the smoothest start. 


1. First things first. Always check the weather forecast for your destination.

2. Use the TUMI folding pack to pack a separate set of clothes into your brief or personal item, just in case your luggage gets lost.

3. Use TUMI packing cubes to separate outfits by colour and occasion while traveling.

4. Have an “essentials pack” on hand with painkillers, hand sanitizer, umbrella, etc.

5. Pack clothes inside dry cleaning plastic wraps.

6. Turn your blazer inside out to prevent wrinkling. Pack socks, undergarments and other small items around the handlebars to create a flat packing surface.

7. Put a dryer sheet inside your suitcase to keep your clothes smelling fresh.

8. Make a photocopy of your passport when traveling to another country. Keep the copy in a separate bag from your passport.

9. When hanging items, layer garments; blouse/jacket/ pants all can be hung on one hangr. Wrap belts around the inside of the case, insert into shoes, or line collars with them to keep them crisp.

10. Roll clothes instead of folding. (i.e. roll socks and stuff into your shoes.)

11. Use a jewellery roll to hold delicate necklaces and earrings – they’ll never tangle.

12. Unscrew the lids of liquid cosmetics/toiletries and place a simple patch of cling film on the top and screw them back on to prevent any liquids from ruining your trip.

13. Choose the right shoes and wear the heaviest ones to reduce weight in your suitcase.

14. Buy toiletries when you get to your destination or use the ones the hotels provide to reduce space and weight in your bag.
