10 Things Active Travelers Always Pack

This post is sponsored by lululemon. 

Whether you’re headed out on a fitness-focused trip (like a hiking adventure or destination race) or just want to stick to your workout routine on the road, you’ll want to take a tip from active travelers who always pack these 10 things.

These ultra-packable items will help travelers perform at their best (and recover more quickly) while on the road. 

Court Rival Skirt

Designed for both tennis and running, lululemon’s multitasking Court Rival Skirt is the perfect piece for active travelers who are also light packers. The lightweight skirt is lined and has a perforated fabric that dries quickly and keeps you cool even as the match heats up.

Bonus: The liner features a dual-entry pocket that can hold a tennis ball and your phone. 

Everywhere Belt Bag Extended Strap

The Everywhere Belt Bag is just big enough to hold all the essentials: phone, keys, wallet. The water-repellent fabric keeps everything dry while the interior pockets make sure everything stays organized and easy to find. The belt bag now features an updated longer-length strap to make sure that everyone can have the perfect custom fit. 

The Everywhere Belt Bag can be worn crossbody or around the waist, and is a great way to keep your passport and tickets close by and secured when flying. 

Inner Glow High-Rise Short

Made from an ultra-soft French terry fabric, lululemon’s Inner Glow High-Rise Shorts are sweat-wicking and naturally breathable to keep you dry and comfortable, no matter how hot the temperatures or how intense the workout. 

The shorts feature front pockets with an interior card sleeve that’s perfect for storing your hotel room key or credit card so you can head out bag-free. 

Scuba Oversized Half-Zip Hoodie

The Scuba Oversized Half-Zip Hoodie is the perfect extra layer to pack. The light cotton fleece fabric offers cozy warmth without being too bulky. The Kangaroo pocket adds style and hides a secret phone sleeve that keeps your phone within easy reach while still being secure.

Available in a variety of colors, the Scuba Oversized Half-Zip Hoodie can match any traveler’s style. 

City Adventurer Backpack Mini

No need to pack both a backpack and a crossbody bag—the City Adventurer Backpack Mini quickly converts so you can wear it in either style. The mini size is great for active travelers who don’t want to be weighed down—it has just enough space to fit the essentials.

Go ahead and pack your sweaty post-workout clothes right into the backpack—an expandable pocket keeps dirty gear separated, and the water-repellent fabric is easy to wipe clean.

Airing Easy Short Sleeve

The Airing Easy Short Sleeve Shirt can go from a hike to dinner without sacrificing comfort or style. This technical button-up shirt is made from the ultra-breathable trademarked WovenAir fabric that’s stretchy, abrasion-resistant, and water-repellent, so you can show up to the trail and the table looking sharp. 

Removable collar stays keep your look on point, and an underarm gusset ensures you can move freely to crush climbs (or the dance floor).

Court Crush Dress

Is there any better hotel feature than having tennis courts on the property? If you’re traveling to play some matches, be sure to pack lululemon’s Court Crush Dress, a stylish all-in-one outfit that offers light support so you can stay focused on the game. 

The dress’s four-way stretch Everlux fabric is cooling and sweat-wicking, plus dries quickly so you can wear it to a post-match meal.

Both Ways Reversible Bucket Hat

Pack one hat and get two looks with lululemon’s Both Ways Reversible Bucket Hat. The hat comes in a wide range of color options that are solid on one side and feature an eye-catching pattern on the other. A wide brim protects your face and neck from the sun.

The bucket hat comes in three unisex sizes so you can find the perfect fit. 

Release and Recover Ball Set

A long flight, car ride, or intense workout all deserve a massage after—but if you’re short on time, treating yourself to the Release and Recover Ball Set feels just as good (and is equally beneficial to your muscles.)

The set of travel-friendly foam and rubber balls comes in three different sizes to best target different muscle groups. 

Adjustable Yoga Mat Bag
