Pack Your Bags with Sports Basement

We here at Sports Basement love our Bay Area home, but sometimes we’re excited to hit the road (or airplane runway) and get away. We know travel can be stressful, which is why we bring you the best of the best when it comes to travel gear. Our buyers have spent many a sleepless night finding the best possible gear for our customers (psst, that’s you) and judging from the number of vacation adventures they go on after all that hard work, we can confidently say that they know what they’re talking about. They always keep you, daring voyager, in mind, so there’s no need to research the best luggage or backpack since they did all the legwork for you. You can end your hunt for the comfiest travel pillow here (we’ve nap-tested our selection extensively). Check out a few of our favorite travel products, below, and make sure you've packed everything with our packing list:

Sports Basement's Absolutely Essential Packing List 


1. Eagle Creek Pack-It Specter Cube Set
Become an organization guru with packing cubes. Perfect for undergarments, shirts, and shorts, these multi-sized cubes make it easy to find what you’re looking for without unpacking your whole bag. Water-repelling material will make sure your clothes stay dry if you forget to cap your water bottle. Tip: Buy sets in multiple colors to make finding your gear even easier.
2. DaKine Groomer Bag
Take your grooming routine with you in this handy toiletries bag. Its boxy shape stands flat so you don’t have to worry about your toothbrush escaping. Perfect for all your hygiene and cosmetic products!
3. Cascade Designs Personal Body Towel
Any prepared traveler knows to pack an extra towel. Use it to dry off at the lake or even as a blanket on the plane. Super-absorbent and quick drying, you can use it for your morning shower and your ride home.
4. Sun Bum Sunscreen
We can almost hear our moms reminding us to put on sunblock. Sun Bum’s SPF 50 Lotion has got you covered (literally) with a comfortable sunscreen that provides extreme protection.
5. Eagle Creek 2-in-1 Travel Pillow
Your head resting needs are covered with this neck pillow. Use it as a comfy neck rest while on a plane or as a traditional rectangular pillow while you camp. We are not responsible for any drooling that may occur.
6. Kuju Coffee
Get your caffeine fix anywhere with Kuju Coffee packets. Just add hot water and you've got delicious, fresh, brewed coffee outdoors and in-flight.
