Packing for Paris in February – Your Paris Packing List

This list of things to pack for Paris in February is for men and women. This Paris packing list February is complete with some basic tips for your luggage (suitcase and day bag /backpack), travel essentials, and toiletries.

1. Paris Packing List: Luggage

Carry-on vs. Checked Suitcase:

Use a suitcase that is sized to the duration of your trip to Paris. Remember that some airlines charge for checked luggage and there is always the chance that your luggage does not follow you if your flight to Paris has a short layover. I am a big fan of Delsey Paris, as it has elegant designs and comes in a couple of nice colors. Plus, the carry-on isn’t too expensive.

Packing Cubes:

How could we travel before without packing cubes? Packing cubes are the single best packing hack that we can recommend for packing for Paris and anywhere else. Personally, I have three packing cubes (red, green, blue) where I keep different items (e.g., casual clothes, hiking /sports clothes, fancy clothes).

Daypack vs. Day Bag:

The answer is really going to depend on your personal style and what you’re doing on a day-to-day basis during your trip to Paris. If you are concerned about safety in Paris, check out this quick guide to anti-theft backpacks or this guide to anti-theft day bags (but not every person in Paris is trying to rob you, so chill out).
