Packing for a trip is truly an art form, and can be the difference between a carefree vacation and scrambling to buy supplies at local shops. You really never want to head to a trip unprepared, and it really hinges on the destination and more importantly, the time of year that you’ll be traveling. Traveling in the spring has a lot of benefits, as many destinations will have pretty lovely weather to experience in the springtime.

The editors of Travel & Leisure have complied a list of their travel must haves for spring trips, and who better to trust? These picks will help you have the most enjoyable trip. So what are these items?

Columbia Women’s Arcadia II Rain Jacket

Sky Sherman, Assistant Editor at Large at Travel & Leisure shared that this is her go to item. She said: “Warm rain — like a Florida summer shower — demands gear that will keep you dry without making you overheat. I’ve had this lightweight Columbia rain jacket for more than 10 years and it’s still going strong. The brand makes such great, durable gear! It also rolls up super small into one of its own zippered hand pockets; I pack it into the pocket of my backpack on every trip so I can easily grab it for protection in unexpected rainfall. It’s one of my travel staples and has kept me dry in situations ranging from downtown deluges to rainforest hikes.”

Outdoor Voices Rib Flare Pant

Madeline Diamond, Associate Ecommerce Editor shared: “I, for one, am thrilled that flared leggings and yoga pants are back in style. I’ve been hanging onto one pair from years ago, so it’s time to give my wardrobe an update. I love the look of these Outdoor Voices pants, which have a high-waisted fit and subtle lettuce hem. Plus, they have pockets, which are perfect for storing my keys and a mask when I’m headed out of the house. And since they’re made from soft, stretchy ribbed fabric with UPF 50+ protection, they’ll be perfect for spring and summer walks and hikes.”

Brooklinen Artist Series Beach Towel

According to Assistant Editor Scott Bay, “Brooklinen has collaborated with New York City artists Kath Nash, Josh Cochran, and Cheryl Thuesday to create some very fun beach towels that have successfully cured my seasonal depression. I couldn’t help but snag one in anticipation of the sunshine just around the corner. The material quality is top-notch, — and I can’t wait to stand out with the neon-green towel touting NYC icons.”

White and Warren Cashmere Travel Wrap

Jacqui Gifford, Editor in Chief, swears by this travel wrap. She said: “I’ve been traveling quite a bit this season (Tulum, Bermuda, and Charleston!) and never leave home without my White + Warren cashmere travel wrap, a classic that never goes out of style. I use the cozy wrap as a blanket on planes, as a scarf to ward off the evening chill, or even as a throw to jazz up a blah hotel-room sofa. It’s the ultimate multitasker.”

Senreve Maestra Bag

Senior Editor Sarah Bruning said: “I’ve been looking for a new do-it-all bag since we’re heading back to the office soon, and I’m gearing up for a couple summer trips. As a new mom, I’m juggling and schlepping more stuff, but I still want my hands free, so I’m splurging on a super stylish leather backpack. The Senreve Maestra will fit my work laptop and daily essentials, but I can also carry it as a shoulder bag if I need a slightly more dressed-up look.”
