Round the World Packing List - Jeff's Stuff

If there is one thing I have figured out, it is that if you have space, you'll fill it with stuff. Pick a smaller bag and make it work. That being said, I know I packed more than I need.

So what do you take when you’re traveling for a year? Here is the list of the stuff I'm carrying:


  • Osprey Farpoint 55L Pack (40L pack with 15L daypack, 15L normally empty when checking bag)
  • GoRuck Shadow Ruck (extra daypack)
  • Chicobag compact market bag

Packing cubes are awesome, they really help keep everything organized and in place, plus keep clean and dirty clothes separate when they all have to go in the same bag.

Its probably too much stuff, but it fits and I haven’t wanted to throw any of it out after a month. We’ll see how the list looks after a few more months!
