The Patagonia men’s stretch all-wear hybrid shorts perform just as well on land as they do in water, while Miraclesuit’s Classics Speed one-piece swimsuit sports long-lasting Lycra stretch fabric in cherry red with an eye-catching, dive-in attitude. $69, patagonia.com; $168, miraclesuit.com.

Packing CubesOnce you use Bago’s Packing Cubes five-piece set to keep clothes, shoes, and accessories neatly folded and organized, you’ll never go back. Opt for different colors for easy remembering: blue for beachwear, green for safari gear, etc. $30, bagotravelbags.com.

A Stylish Sun HatPick up a Panama-style hat with a collapsible brim: It’s classic travel chic with twenty-first-century practicality (and skin protection). We love the packable straw Adriana from Janessa Leoné. $207, janessaleone.com.

From $260, ferragamo.com; from $298, whiteandwarren.com.
