Lewis N. Clark travel bags and accessories are stylish and functional. I put them to the test recently, and now you can enter to win two great travel bags from their newest line!
Whether you travel a lot or go on local adventures, the right gear is essential. When I travel, I like to pack as lightly as possible and having the right travel bags makes a world of difference.
The same goes for living and playing in the Pacific Northwest. Whether you are biking, hiking, climbing a mountain, or just out for a walk around the city, having the right bag can make or break your adventure.
Recently, I learned about Lewis N. Clark travel bags and accessories. I was admittedly drawn to them because of the name, being a longtime Pacific Northwest gal. Experiencing a variety of their items helped me see just how important the right bag truly is whether you're embarking on a day in the city or a day full of outdoor adventures.
Lewis N. Clark Travel Bags and Accessories
A few months ago, I went on a press trip with Travel Oregon and as luck would have it, Lewis N. Clark contacted me to send me some of their gear to try out. The timing was perfect!
Here's a look at the bags and accessories they sent me to test out:
From heavy duty outdoor gear and dry bags, to luggage accessories like packing cubes, Lewis N. Clark has everything you need for your next trip. As I've learned over the years, it truly helps to have the right bags for each occasion.
Tips for Choosing the Right Travel Bags
Depending on the type of traveling you are doing, there are a lot of things to consider when packing the right travel gear to take with you for your adventures. Here are some tips to consider when choosing the right travel bags and accessories.
- Select bags perfect for the weather and season. Some bags are fully freeze and wind resistant, making them perfect for winter outdoor adventures. Some bags are lightweight and breathable, making them excellent for summer adventures. The Lewis N. Clark lightweight day backpack, shown above, was super lightweight and held all of my odds & ends without weighing me down during our bike tour along the Columbia River Gorge this summer. This backpack has also since been used by my kids for their sleepovers and our small day hikes too. It's great!
- Size matters. When you're hiking up a mountain, you want a backpack or a waist pack that is lightweight, durable, and big enough to hold all of the items you need without being too bulky. If you're heading out on the water, you want to pick a heavy duty dry bag, like the one shown above, that is large enough to fit everyone's items to protect them from getting soaked. It's perfect for a day out kayaking with the family!
- Think about bags within bags. This is my secret to staying organized when I travel. Packing cubes are my best friend, and I honestly LOVE the ones shown above from Lewis N. Clark. I have medium ones that help me separate out clothing by occasion (workout, day, night), oblong ones for shoes, and smaller ones for electronic chargers, jewelry, and toiletries. I also use these to help separate out my kids' travel items too. What I like about the Lewis N. Clark packing cubes is that they are all expandable, so you can adjust them to fit each trip's particular packing needs.
Lewis N. Clark's newest line, their WEA Collection, is my favorite. These bags are beautiful, sleek, and perfect for your daily on-the-go needs.
There are larger work-to-workout-to-weekend tote bags, crossbody bags, and phone wallets. Each is made of thick, sturdy material and is crafted beautifully. Each piece has well thought-out pockets and zipped compartments for all of your daily on-the-go needs. These are also what I would consider to be the most stylish, city-friendly travel bags and accessories from Lewis N. Clark. I love how they look, as well as how they function.
Each bag in the WEA Collection also has RFID blocking technology to keep your identification safe from electronic pick pocketing. Another excellent travel bonus you'll want in your travel bags!
