So when you grab your Travel Backpack, make sure you pack clothes that are comfortable and appropriate for the weather. It may be hot during the day but cool at night, so pack a sweater or jacket too. You’ll want to dress in layers as well because it can get chilly if you’re near waterfalls or other bodies of water, even when it’s sunny outside. Also, make sure your shoes are comfortable because you might be walking on uneven surfaces or through the dirt.

Otherwise, they may flag an unusual purchase for fraud prevention purposes.

When you are traveling, it is always a good idea to ensure your safety. It means that you should pack some self-defense equipment in case anything goes wrong. The first thing on your checklist for travel gear is pepper spray. You can use it to stop someone from attacking you, and it allows you the chance to escape. However, depending on where you are traveling, other types of self-defense equipment might work better than pepper spray. For example, in some parts of Asia, carrying a small knife is enough protection for travelers.

When packing your travel gear, make sure that you have a good flashlight on your safety gear checklist. It is the best way to help others see you if it becomes dark out and you need help or if someone attempts to attack you. In addition, having some light source can also be a self-defense weapon in case an attacker tries anything during the nighttime hours.
