Travel hack: “Military fold” all your casual clothes

(Also great for those who’re only travelling with carryons or backpackers without compression sacks…)

My grandfather, a retired IAF Air Marshal, is by far one of the most organised packers I know. He credits it to his National Defence Academy days, and he’d endorsed the ‘roll your civvies*’ thing well before it was considered a travel hack.

Anyway, here’s a tutorial which shows you how to roll your clothes, like a boss:

You can do the same with pretty much any piece of casual clothing, and if you’re off for a short trip, give this a try (but please, put your toothbrush in a case for gosh sakes!)

Happy packing 🙂

* ‘civives’, from ‘civilian’ is a term used to described civilian clothing. If an officer wasn’t in uniform, and in jeans, say, he’d be ‘in civvies’.
