Packing to travel can make you feel like you've either brought too much or not enough! While driving may not force you to restrict the amount you bring, a plane trip will (unless you're cool with extra baggage fees). We can hook you up with the absolute HBCU best travel essentials that will keep you looking fresh and feeling comfortable in whatever climate you're traveling to. Our HBCU apparel is the best way to rep your school for everyone to see and maybe even ask you about.
Before you throw anything into your duffle, you need a go-to t-shirt. Our HBCU tees are designed to go with almost anything, with a slim fit and scalloped bottom. With various HBCU options to choose from, you can cop the one you represent and others you have love for. We also offer several original Tradition tees so you can let people know who has got you dripped out. Depending on where you're traveling, our tees are great to sleep in or as a layer to keep warm.
A crewneck or sweatshirt are major key items to have in your baggage. They're great in place of bulky jackets for cool weather, early mornings, or late nights. You may be flying out on vacation for the holidays or a summer trip, but the plane cabin is usually kept pretty cold. One of our HBCU crewnecks is what you need. Some of these fleece crewnecks have the school's name and motto applied in felt across the chest. Others have a minimalist design, featuring only the school logo on the left chest. The attention to detail on these is noticeable and will definitely draw attention. Similarly, our hoodies will be better suited for you if you're headed somewhere cold. These can be a nice layer on top of our tees, keeping you at optimal temperature.
Whether you'll be in warm or cold weather, you're probably going to want a pair of shorts or leggings. These will be crucial if the gym or outdoor activities are in your plans during your travels. The G.O.A.T. shorts are one of our best selling items, featuring an old-school inspired design. With the school's name embroidered across the front of the shorts, the sides feature their mascot logo. These shorts fit above the knee with two long drawstrings to bring out the detail and style of them. Our women's leggings come in two different styles—splat and camo. Each pair showcases the school's name down the sides of the legs with an elastic waistband that reads "Tradition" across the center.
Lastly, a hat will be your savior in poor weather and hair malfunctions, meaning you should definitely pack one. We offer three different styles of HBCU hats—snapbacks, 5 panels, and mesh 5 panels. These hats come in a variety of different colorways and feature the Tradition pennant flag. Bring them along for the gym, casual wear, or even in the club. The vast array of options in these hats will make it difficult to just choose one, so you might want to cop two or three—you know, to match every outfit.
When you're simply trying to pack a bag without bringing your entire wardrobe, knowing which items you need will help you get it done faster. If you pack mindfully, you'll be able to pull any of these HBCU travel essentials out to use as you're in route to your destination.
