Selectism Guide: What to Pack for Your Overnight Business Trip

Traveling for business can be exciting but it also can be a bit grueling, especially if it’s a one-nighter where you can’t enjoy yourself. Keeping this in mind, we’ve gathered a number of items that would help your trip go smoother, from an all-purpose coat to protect you in all weathers and an essentials skincare kit to even a pair of boxers designed exclusively for traveling. Confused? You’ll see what we mean after the jump.

 

Aether Polar Trench

Aether is known for performance sportswear but this trench coast was designed with those who wear suits in mind. The shoulders and sleeves are ergonomically shaped for extra mobility and comfort while you wear that stiff blazer. This is also perfect for traveling because its waterproof and multi pocket technicalities are all retained in a lightweight piece of three tech fabric layers that protect you against all weather elements. ($795)

Aesop Jet Set Travel Kit

Exemplaire Travel Kit

This all-black leather kit includes a blanket, eye mask and a pair of socks, all made in France from fine cashmere. It also features various compartments in which you can organize your other small goods, whatever they may be. ($3,490)

 

Berg & Berg Folio

Fitting a briefcase into your overnight bag or carrying it as a second one is a hassle. You can use this clean and chic option that comfortably holds your laptop, tablet and extra documents just as well.

Scottevest Travel Boxer 2.0

These boxers were designed exclusively for traveling. That means it comes with secure pockets for your passport and phone so you don’t have to worry about being pickpocketed in foreign land. Comfortable, lightweight, and odor-resisting, Scottevest tested them on the field for six weeks before releasing them for sale to the public. Take a couple of these with you and they won’t disappoint. ($20)
