The Top 3 Things Not to Leave Behind on Your Next Road Trip

Updated: Dec 18, 2023

Embarking on a road trip is the epitome of freedom — the open road stretching endlessly ahead, beckoning you to new adventures. But as you set out with the wind in your hair and the promise of the unknown, the age-old question remains: What essentials should you pack that will make life easier on the journey?

Fear not, road warrior — Starfish & Moss have got you covered. Here are three often-overlooked road trip essentials that will elevate every adventure!

1. A Towel Poncho: Your Roadside Changing Room, Extra Layer, and Cosy Companion

Picture this: You've pulled over for an invigorating surf session or a spontaneous dip in a hidden waterfall. Now, faced with the need to change into and out of your swimsuit, the towel poncho emerges as your unsung hero.

Starfish & Moss brings you the perfect solution for changing anywhere on-the-go. This stylish poncho transforms into a portable changing room that doesn't just shield you from prying eyes and embarassing costume malfunctions; it also feels like a warm hug after a chilly ocean plunge.

Designed to keep you comfortable during dewy mornings, in the sea breeze, chilly sunsets, and to upgrade the camping ground shower experience. This towel poncho is the versatile companion you never knew you needed. Sun protection at the beach? Check. Cosy warmth post-bonfire dip in the sea? Double-check. It's the road tripper's secret weapon for facing unpredictable conditions with confidence.

2. A Decent Headlamp: Illuminate Your Adventures, Day or Night

Navigating the open road sometimes extends into the twilight hours, and that's where a reliable headlamp becomes your trusty sidekick. Sure, you can turn on the torch on your phone. But when you're setting up camp under a starlit sky or searching for a midnight snack in the cooler, a headlamp ensures both hands are free and your path always well-lit even when you run out of charge on the phone. We recommend adding this compact yet powerful tool to your road trip arsenal for those spontaneous moments that make your journey unforgettable.

3. A Reusable Water Bottle: Reduce Waste, Stay Hydrated, Feel Energised

In the rush of planning, it's easy to overlook the simplest yet one of the most crucial elements of any road trip: hydration. A reusable water bottle is not just environmentally friendly; it's the key to staying refreshed and energised throughout your adventure. We encourage every road tripper to make this eco-conscious choice, ensuring you have a sip of hydration whenever the mood strikes, be it under the scorching sun or at a roadside picnic spot.

If you won't always have access to safe drinking water, consider adding a mini water filtering device to your bottle or investing in a water bottle that filters your water.

So as you gear up for your next road trip, don't forget these absolute must-haves or you'll be kicking yourself for leaving them behind: The most versatile towel poncho, a reliable headlamp, and reusable water bottle. Elevate your road trip experience, making every pit stop, unplanned detour, and unplanned stop all part of the adventure.

Happy trails!
