In this edition of Vee Travels’ In The Bag series, sporty accessories for traveling to the Caribbean to destinations like the U.S. Virgin Islands. Shot at the B in St. Croix, these accessories cover you from running or horseback riding to swimming and snorkeling to just hanging out by the beach or pool afterwards while keeping your belongings well stored.
Backpack – Jansport
Super spacious, the Jansport Growler became a new favorite backpack of mine. Since I like to just do carry-on, was able to fit my 15″ macbook pro, cords, Canon Rebel DSLR, a couple tees and a lot more items in the backpack. There’s two main compartments (one for your laptop and the other for everything else), then there’s side pockets (one with an exterior mesh holder for your water or umbrella), a small front compartment for your wallet and other necessities, and a hidden bottom compartment if need to stick a wet bathing suit or something down there. A polyster body with nylon straps, the usualy Jansport logo has a stealthy leather makeover.
Swimwear – (2)xist
The (2)xist Core Ibiza Swim Shorts takes a simple, classic style and modernizes it with a low rise waist and trimmed legged, so perfect if you want to show off some leg but so much like a pair of trunks or a brief style would show. Available in eight colors.
Sneakers – Asics
The Asics Gel-Scram Trail Running Shoe is built with a lightweight cushiniong for comfort, so works on hard runs and when having to take long walks if flying with transfer (as I often do). Overall the sneakers are also very lightweight, with a body combination of rugged synthetics and mesh.
Headphones – Skullcandy
Providing the usually great sound quality, the Skullcandy Navigator is foldable headphone that’s perfect for travel and to minizmine your day’s worth of accessories. Bonus soft leather memory foam ear pillows for comfort!
Sunglasses – SPY+
Then finally, to keep your eyes protected from that Caribbean sun, SPY+’s The Fold shades live up to their name and are foldable and easy for storing in a jacket pocket or your bag. It comes with a nice leather pouch that can you use to store other small items when wearing the sunglasses.
