If your dad loves getting back to nature, why not taking him camping this Father's Day? You might think that a tent, a few days' worth of food and a change of clothes will be enough to see you through a weekend in the wilderness, but have you thought about what you're going to carry everything in? Having a comfy backpack on hand will make your dad's Father's Day expedition even more enjoyable!

First things first - you'll need a bag that fits easily into overhead compartments. We have an extensive of collection of carry-on luggage, so you can pick out an option that perfectly suits your dad's travel needs. For a comfortable flight, dads should stash the following items in their carry-on bag:
- Phone + USB charger - many planes come equipped with USB outlets now, allowing passengers to charge their phones throughout the flight

The Coastal Road Trip
If you live in Queensland, you can't go past a trip to the Gold Coast for a luxurious weekend away in some of Australia's best hotels. To complement your pamper holiday, you should also consider getting him an ultra-modern suitcase to match his classy surroundings. Rather than showing up a fancy hotel with a worn out old bag, he'll look much more at home with some nice hardcase luggage. The best thing about these kind of suitcases is their durability - they'll keep his belongings safe and sound for this trip, and all future holidays!
The Business Break
Is your dad super committed to his job? If he can't resist bringing a whole stack of work along for the weekend, a quality laptop bag is essential. We stock both laptop bags and backpacks in a range of sizes and colours, so your dad won't have to worry about neglecting his professional responsibilities on Father's Day. To ensure your dad's laptop doesn't run out of battery, we also recommend bringing along a portable battery charger.
