Travel Packing List
Unfortunately, there is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to travel packing lists so instead of wasting your time scouring the Internet for the perfect packing list, my advice is to use the wide variety of packing lists found on the web as a collective resource to help create your own.
Below, you’ll find a comprehensive list of everything I carry around the world with me. This list will change from time to time so if you’re interested in learning about new gear that I pick up along the way, I recommend you check back here often.
Tortuga BackpackFirst and foremost, let’s start with what I use to carry all my gear.
The Tortuga Backpack is what I consider to be the best carry on backpack money can buy.
I covered every little detail of the Tortuga Travel Backpack in an in-depth review which you can check out here:
The Tortuga has been my primary backpack for more than two years now and I really can’t recommend it enough.
I could go on for days when talking about how great this backpack is but since I’ve already done that in the review above, I’ll simply tell you what I love most about this pack.
1. The Slim Profile: The Tortuga Backpack is a rectangular shaped, 44L pack with 11 different storage pockets and compartments. Nobody want’s a backpack that makes you look like you’re carrying a sack of boulders on your back. The Tortuga somehow manages to keep it’s slim profile no matter how much you stuff in it.
2. Carry On Backpack: The Tortuga is carry on sized — 22″ x 14″ x 9″ (56cm x 36cm x 23cm). If you’re into the whole one bag movement, this backpack will be right up your alley. Oh, and don’t forget how much money you’ll save on checked baggage fees now that you never have to check another bag again.
3. Front Loading: It’s a front loading backpack which means the zippers open from the top all the way to the bottom of the pack (think: clamshell design) allowing you to find anything you’re looking for in seconds. One trip with the front loading Tortuga Backpack and you’ll realize how much time and money you’ve wasted over the years on all those traditional top loading travel backpacks.
And that’s just a few of the many reasons why I think the Tortuga Backpack is hands down the best travel backpack on the market.
