This is my Packing List

For an extended trip, backing minimally is key to minimizing your head(and back)aches. As I mention in my post about The Importance of Minimal Packing, making sure that you keep your backpack as light as possible is super important. Read on below to see the packing list that got my backpack under 15lb!

My packing list

Below is the packing list I used to get below 15lbs / 7 KG for my carry-on backpack. The list might seem like a lot, but it really packs down to nothing. Some of these items can get a bit pricey, but when you have only two shirts or one pair of pants in your bag, you want them to last. Keep the prices of quality products in mind when deciding how minimally you want to pack.

It’s been a wild time in Ireland. I’ve learned how to drive manual in a trial by fire, drank with all manners of travelers until the wee hours of the morning, met a countless number of new friends, and grown exponentially more confident in myself.
