As backpackers, we tend to carry the minimum; any stolen items can become a major setback.That’s when the PacSafe Backpack Protector comes into play. ►►►
As plus-size people, a hotel/hostel/any regular towel is rarely enough to do the job and we are often tempted to bring our own, in spite of the space it can take in our luggage. ►►►
Though it goes a bit against my backpacker “instincts” to pack very flashy things to wear, in order to be able to mix and match all (or nearly all!) my items of clothing, this one comes as a complete surprise! (I also hate to be too visible while away to avoid drawing unwanted attention.) ►►►
This one is for the ladies! Another challenge faced by Plus Size backpackers is to find a decent & supporting bra that won’t stink at the first drop of sweat, take forever to dry or ended up all crooked. ►►►
Another pick from Old Navy’s Women’s Plus Collection!
