Packing Made Easy: The Lewis N. Clark Solution

Packing Made Easy: The Lewis N. Clark Solution

I have all sorts of adventures planned over the next six months from sea kayaking on the west coast of Canada to trekking in the Indian Himalayas. These two adventures and most of the others involve travel with either a backpack or duffel bag. If you’ve gone that route, you know how disorganized your bag can get in short order.

Lewis N. Clark, an American company specializes in travel accessories. They offer bags and duffels, packing cubes, toiletry kits, compression socks, electrical adapters, purses and wallets with RFID blocking technology, along with things like surge protectors, alarm clocks and nylon tarps. There was nothing packing related that I couldn’t find on their website.

I recently received some products I knew would be useful for my upcoming trips. My favourite is the ultra-lightweight packing cubes made up silnylon. Truly, these cubes weight at most a few ounces. I’m a fan because you can colour code your clothing and gear. T-shirts, underwear and socks can all have their own bag, as can small electronics. These cubes are part mesh so they breathe and reduce the chance of stinky clothes. Do be careful on beaches though as fine sand can get into the bags.

I also love their mesh bags that come in a variety of colours and sizes. I use these primarily for camping gear and larger items of clothing. They even come in handy for cooling your beer and wine. Trust me – I’ve used them in that capacity.

What I also love is their black leather clutch with RFID (radio frequency identification) protection. The RFID protection helps to prevent the unauthorized scanning of RFID data stored on credit cards. I have had my credit card compromised three times in less than a year so this technology should really help someone like me.

And if you need a water-resistant travel bag with slash resistant compartments and shoulder straps then the bag pictured below will do the trick. It also comes with RFID protected card slots.

I’m set for my next adventures but John isn’t. He’s the type that in frustration dumps the contents of his whole duffel bag in the tent to look for one item. For marital harmony I think it’s worth buying more packing cubes.

  1. Looks like a plan. . .I am still not sure I could use cubes but it looks like you’ve mastered the system! And your summer sounds great.

    1. @Jackie I really have become a cube convert – but primarily when I use duffle bags and packs. They really make a huge diff. I have a pretty awesome summer – also will be going to Ivvavik National Park beside Alaska on the Arctic Ocean.
