Heading to a March? These Essential Items Will Keep You on Message

Add in some signage and you'll be good to go. 

By Patricia Cunningham

Another big march is slated to hit Washington, D.C., and cities across the country in the coming weeks, and if interest in social media is any indication, it has the potential to be huge. With massive crowds come some challenges however that you need to plan ahead for — for example, don’t expect to find any drinking fountains or places to charge your phone. Oh, and the loos might be few and far between and lack necessary accoutrements.

But don’t let that discourage you from attending because raising your voice up for something you believe in is pretty awesome no matter what it may be. We’ve pulled together a list of essentials to help make things go smoothly so you can focus on what is most important: being heard.

Belkin Pocket Power Portable Charger

A major essential is a portable phone charger — and one that's lightweight is a bonus.

Skechers Performance Go Walk Joy

Don’t let the wrong shoes break your stride. Wear a pair all about comfort.

Clear Stadium Bag

A big bulky bag or backpack can get you flagged for a check. This clear bag holds the basics and lets you go hands-free.

S’well Insulated Stainless Steel Bottle

Stay hydrated with a refillable bottle.

Lemon Baseball Hat

Not only will a hat give you some protection from the sun, a bright pattern virtually guarantees your friends won’t lose you in a crowd!

Patagonia Better Sweater

Spring weather is unpredictable. Take an extra fleece for layering up or down.

Pro Bar Meal Bar Wholeberry Blast

A meal bar will keep your energy from flagging between food stops.

Thorlo Padded Walking Ankle Sock

An extra pair of socks is always a good idea. These come with some padding for your feet.

Pyle PA System

A compact megaphone will definitely help you get your message across.

Kleenex Multicare

Don’t count on bathroom tissue at the port-o-potties, think ahead and bring your own!
