We asked on social media, and you answered. Here's what's making it into your suitcase this July 4 weekend.
Packing tips are as personal as underwear. What fits one person doesn't always work for another. And while we have several tried and tested rules that successfully get us from point A to point B, we're always down to try something new.
Which is why we polled you, our friends on Twitter and Facebook for your best packing tips. From the perfect Panama hat to the best chili sauce, you told know that it isn't always about how you pack, but what you pack. Here's what's making it into the Fathom world's suitcases this 4th of July weekend.
1. Mustela SPF 50+ Sunscreen
2. Basic Tees
3. Knock Knock Notes
4. Club Monaco Hat & Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment
Gummy worms, eye drops, a secret stuffed animal. Everyone has one or two items they can't bear to be without. For @AveryRaygun, it's a big bottle of chili sauce ($5) to spice up the blandest of airplane meals.
6. Everlane Backpack
7. Flight 001 SpacePack
8. Herban Essentials Essential Oil Towelettes
We want to know which beach you're parking yourself on this summer. Send us a Tweet at @FathomWayToGo with your favorite beach and/or a photo we can include in a roundup of the world's best beaches.
