What is a Prepared Girl?

A prepared girl is cool, calm, and collected – ready for whatever the adventure throws her way. She knows that the best plans can change in an instant, completely outside of her control. She is resilient and resourceful.

Whether she’s on the trail or traveling to an off-the-beaten path destination somewhere around the world, she’s prepared and ready to embrace the experience.

But, that doesn’t mean throwing everything but the kitchen sink into her bag. She’s perfectly balanced being prepared for the unexpected with a minimalist approach to packing. This gives her confidence knowing that she’s prepared and nimble.
