5 Must-Haves for Your Next Road Trip

peasants & travelers overnighter!

The hardest part of any road trip from SF may not be where to go (St. Helena? Big Sur? Mendocino?) but what to take. Here, packable picks from the Bay Area’s best.

Have Bag, Will Travel
Please get rid of that duffel you’ve saved since college. Invest in a carryall, like the Overnighter ($250) from Peasants & Travelers. Not only does the cork panel give it a natural-meets-city-chic look, but the smart shoulder strap makes it easy to cart around.

Go-Go Gadget
Why should your iPad have to suffer because you’re on the road? Try local company InCase’s travel kit plus ($60), which has a faux fur lining and interior pockets to stash your earphones.

Drive-Ins and Dives
Resist the (almost insatiable) urge to stop at In-n-Out, and pick up sandos (like the pork bollito misto, tongue, shoulder, and belly topped with salsa verde) at the Fatted Calf’s new Hayes Valley location. Don’t forget the beef jerky, made with bourbon, organic blackstrap molasses, and sea salt.

A Shoe-In
Whether you’re traipsing around a vineyard or strolling the shops in Carmel, these sporty tangerine and cream lace-up shoes ($275) from SF designer Glory Chen add a punch of color to any outfit.

It’s a Wrap
This quilted cotton throw blanket ($135) from perennial Bay Area fave India Rose serves two purposes: keeping you warm and cozy in the car and covering your spot for a petite wine country picnic.
