Going around the world for 10 weeks in a carry-on is hard enough as it is. Especially for ladies. Luckily Lady Tocqueville is an ardent adventurer who can accomplish this task. She needs clothes that are lightweight, breathable, layer-able, durable, and at least somewhat fashionable.
Luckily – REI came through on this. She was able to get Columbia zip-off pants/shorts, a Columbia Omnishade trekking shirt with sleeves that button up, and a North Face redpoint warm jacket that zips itself into its own zipper for easy storage. These three layers alone will be instrumental in helping us participate in all the fun and exciting upcoming activities. Our local REI was well stocked, and with their generous return policy should there be second thoughts before the trip, we know we can return them with no hesitation.
