Packing Luggage Carry On for carry on only trips
Stage 1: Planning
Think through each day of your trip and note your activities and if your luggage carry on will be with you or not - add in a couple of senarios for out of the blue / serendipidous activities too. Plan out your clothes with these in mind - watersports? Sun shirt stinggoes? urban/outdoortrek? second set of hiking shoes. Addtional items for your basic toiletries kit (sunscreen?). Now revise the list and slim down any duplicates - for started you can only afford one pair of shoes, any jackets will more then likely have to worn onto the flight alone with long pants.

Regardless of which of these methods you use the finishing touch requires luggage carry on or baggage with internal compression straps to compress and hold your gear in place., ( All Caribee Carry on baggage and luggage comes with internal compression systems).
Stage 3: Revise
Are you happy with your packing efforts - weigh your carry on luggage and check your are within limits (the table on the right will help - always check with your airline to be sure!). If your cutting it fine or just wanting to travel with light baggage expect to make 3 to 4 repacks. Be tough with your self remember it's called carry on luggage because you'll be carrying it everywhere (unless you go for some fo the Caribee wheeled carry on luggage shown above). Typically people realise after a trip that they didnt need half the packed items.
If you're cutting it close to the weight limitswhy not upgrade your luggage to some Caribee lightweight luggage.
