Ever try traveling with a hat?  Where do you carry it?  Like most, the answer is likely on your head, lap, or maybe just leave it behind before you end up losing it en route.  BUT, the hat is an essential item for summer travelers, so here’s a great way to bring that accessory without hassle or worry. 

Gather all the items you want to pack; The place the heavy items on the bottom including things like shoes, purses, and jeans, creating a flat surface.

Save one heavy item and roll it up. Screenshot 2017-05-05 10.13.10


Grab your hat and gently fill the space where your head goes with the rolled item, leaving no space.

Next, flip your hat over and place it on the heavier clothes already packed.  Then you’re going to start adding the remaining items to be packed, all around the hat creating a barrier around it.

Continue to pack the remaining items around the hat, snugly so the hat can’t flop around.  Once this is done, place any additional item on top so there is a nice flat surface, zip it and you’re off!
