What's important to you in a travel outfit? Comfort is key. Nobody wants to travel in uncomfortable clothes. If I'm traveling, I need to be wearing something that I can be comfortable sitting in for more than 3 hours.

What's important to you in a travel outfit? Comfort above all is the most important for a traveling outfit. Sight-seeing is difficult to enjoy in a pair of uncomfortable shoes. If you are comfortable, you will feel confident and enjoy all the activities.
