What to pack for your trip to the Bretagne

The climate of the Bretagne region of north-western France is oceanic, with relatively cold winters and cool summers, and with frequent cloud cover and wind throughout the year; however, the weather in summer is often pleasant.

All-weather gear. Ideal are lightweight hoodies like the highly weatherproof Arc'teryx Squamish jacket, which is breathable, too – handy for when the weather clears up again. During the winter you might also opt for an actual rain jacket like the Patagonia Torrentshell, especially if you plan to go hiking in the jungle or explore the island interior's natural beauty.

Lightweight shoes for hiking. Pack a not-too-bulky pair of trail runners that can handle both streets and trails in dry and wet conditions, such as Saucony’s Peregrine 7 for men or women, that hold up well on wet and dry ground.

Power adapter and charger. In France the power sockets are of type F (his socket also works with plug C and plug E). The standard voltage is 230 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz. These power adapters are included in this world adapter set from Bestek, and a multiport charger, like Anker’s compact Powerport 4.

Packing cubes. They not only keep your suitcase organized, but also compact your clothes to save space. One of frequent travellers'favorites are Eagle Creek‘s Pack-It cubes, which come in different sizes so you can tailor your setup to your needs.
