Hello there travellers
0:01
My name is Marko
0:02
i’m Alex
0:03
and together we are the Vagabrothers
0:04
today we’re talking travel tips!
0:05
how to pack the right clothes for your trip
0:07
doesn’t matter how long your trip is, it could be a week, month, year…whatever
0:10
the packing list is the same
0:13
And we always manage to fit all of our clothes
0:15
plus our camera gear in to one carry-on size bag
0:18
now the key is to bring enough outfits to change your outfits every single day
0:22
or to wear the same shirt and just change your city everyday
0:25
gross dude, put that down
0:27
no the key is to get simple light weight material
0:31
clothes that you can hand wash and use in a wide variety of climates
0:34
so today we’re going to show you the clothes that we wore on our six month, six continent
0:38
Biggest Baddest Bucket list trip
0:40
which took us everywhere from the glaciers of Iceland to the sands of Arabia
0:43
that’s right! First we’re gonna talk material
0:46
okay, rule of thumb
0:47
avoid cotton where possible
0:48
and dress in lightweight synthetic materials
0:50
they breathe well, they pack down small,
0:52
you can wash ’em in the sink and hang them over the dryer over night
0:54
now it’s a little bit more expensive then regular clothes
0:56
but it’s a really worthwhile investment
0:58
especially if you plan on doing a little bit of travelling
1:00
there’s tons of companies out there that offer similar products
1:03
we chose Patagonia because of their high quality material
1:06
lifetime guarantees,
1:08
good style
1:08
and sound corporate ethics!
1:10
okay so lets go through clothing, item by item, starting with shirts
1:13
our go-to travel shirts are these
1:16
long sleeve, button down, 50% polyester and 50% nylon
1:21
super breathable, it also got UV protection
1:24
and if its really hot you can always roll the sleeves up
1:26
and for casual settings either bring a short sleeve button down shirt or another long sleeve
1:31
and they don’t all have to be plaid
1:33
hey shut up, PLAID is RAD!
1:34
but you should bring 3 shirts in total, that’s the point
1:37
plus it never hurts to bring a T-Shirt
1:38
we recently got hooked up by these La Paz shirts
1:41
really cool travel company
1:43
we like their designs
1:44
but we also recommend bringing a synthetic t-shirt
1:47
Underarmor and Patagonia make these
1:49
they quick dry, they also double for running gear or rash guards if you’re surfing
1:54
next up, pants!
1:55
girls, you probably already know this but some guys don’t
1:58
when you choosing your pants, make sure that match your shirt and you make outfits
2:02
we chose Khaki, super versatile colour and it never gets dirty
2:05
okay, you should also bring a pair of shorts and a swimsuit
2:08
the shorts are good even though Europeans don’t wear them
2:11
they’re great for hot days
2:12
and the board shorts or our swimsuits are good for running as well swimming
2:16
now we also found out there’s this new hybrid clothing
2:19
by Rip Curl, it’s called The Boardwalk [The Boardwalk]
2:22
they basically shorts made out of swimsuit material
2:24
so it’s great for two for one
2:25
and you can always go comando
2:27
now ladies don’t look to us for advice on pantys
2:30
but boys we do recommend that you get three pairs
2:32
of these Exofficio quick dry boxer briefs
2:36
you can hand wash ’em and they dry overnight
2:38
plus they breathe so well that you don’t have to change them for a week
2:41
what are you doing Mark?
2:43
i always wanted to be an underwear model
2:45
you put your pants back on!
2:47
sorry!
2:48
next up, shoes!
2:49
the most common packing mistake is bringing too many pairs of damn shoes
2:52
oh my God, shoes!
2:53
we only brought one pair of trail runners
2:55
because they are comfy enough for the city,
2:56
they’re strong enough for hiking and they’re made for running
2:59
we also brought a pair of sandals made by Teva or Sanuk
3:02
they’re super loungeable, plus
3:03
when you throw ’em on with a pair of jeans
3:05
and a button-down shirt, you can dress up with them
3:06
they’re also really easy to pack
3:08
now last, bring some socks
3:10
three different colors so you know which ones are clean and which ones are dirty
3:12
last but not least, dressing in layers
3:15
now it’s a pretty simple concept
3:17
instead of bringing one big bulky jacket
3:20
you bring layers of clothing that you can take off or put on
3:23
depending on the weather
3:24
now we brought these two things, a Nano Puff jacket
3:27
and a basic lightweight shell, both from Patagonia
3:30
they combine to keep us super warm and dry in any climate
3:33
[plus] and they can pack [?] really really small
3:35
super small, but last but not the least the most important accessory
3:38
is this, it is a quick dry towel
3:41
it’s designed for backpacking
3:43
this will save you cash, at hostels they charge you for towels
3:46
buy one of these and be a happy camper
3:48
and don’t forget your sunglasses and a hat
3:50
so as you can see, we pack light because we keep it simple and bring
3:53
only the essentials, so if you have to ask yourself do I really need this
3:56
chances are you wont
3:58
and if you do, you can probably buy it on the road
4:00
so take half the clothes you think you need and twice the amount of cash
4:04

4:18
from the most basic, like how to pack your bag, where to go
4:21
and how to get there,
4:22
to more complex questions like how to study or work abroad
4:25
and some tips on how to learn a new language
4:27
so lets started with
4:28
the most basic question
4:29
why travel?
4:31
[next video inset] i had no idea that’s such a cool
4:33
restaurant, farm to table, exists in Tijuana
4:37
it’s obvious that there’s a lot of things happening with food
4:40
but as much as i love food, now
4:42
we get to try the best part of the whole thing which is beer
4:45
lets go see what’s happening with beer
4:46
starting with The Beer Box just down the street
