Sea bags are tall, cylinder-shaped bags that are used mainly by members of the military. These bags hold a lot of items and are extremely durable. They don't have any pockets or fancy extras, but they get the job done. If you are not careful when you pack your sea bag, you can make it too heavy to carry. The top of the bag can also get in your way when you are working on packing the bottom of the bag. These instructions will help you make the most of packing your sea bag.
Things You'll Need
- Sea bag
- Shaving kit
- Personal items
Hold your sea bag up with the bottom touching the floor. Now take the top of the sea bag and fold it out and over the bag. Pull the sides down until those sides reach the bottom of the floor. Your sea bag is now half its unfolded size; this makes it much easier for you to begin packing items on the bottom of your bag.
Start adding your main clothing to the bag. This includes tops and bottoms. Then add your undergarments.
Roll the sides of the sea bag up so that the bag is standing three quarters of the way tall. This gives you room to continue packing.
Place any boots or shoes you need in the bag next. You can also add any hats that you may need to bring along.
Roll the sides of the sea bag up all the way. You are now ready to include the final objects you will need to take with you.
Top off the sea bag with a towel and such personal items as a shaving kit, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, or family photo. You should also include any extras that you may want to bring, such as a camera or spending money. You may want a notebook, pen, envelopes, and stamps so that you can write home.
Close up your sea bag and set it by your front door so that it is ready to go when you are.
