Packing for a trip can be challenging. Packing for long-term, extended travel can be a nightmare.
And while minimalists tend to assume this stuff will be a breeze-”I only have 3 shirts anyway”-it doesn’t always work out that way. Turns out you kind of need things like toiletry containers, outlet adapters, and other random things in order to keep living your life semi-normally.
Luckily, we’re experts in this kind of stuff. Watch the full video to discover ten tips from the Pack Hacker team that will help you keep things minimal and pack better for your next trip.

  • What are your best packing tips?

    Pack HackerPack Hacker2 ਸਾਲ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ
    • If you need to use the tote bag/compressable backpack from the beginning because of extra things that you need that are bulky, do it and don't beat yourself for it, sometimes it's just unavoidable. EX: medicines and medical equipment (like my case), photography equipment, things you need to give back (like in my case), tablet accessories/the actual tablet if you need it and it's too big for your backpack and you're an artist... In my case, in the next trip to my boyfriend's (we're LDR) I'm actually gonna try backpacking for the first time in my life. I noticed that I have some bulky medical stuff (that I CANNOT compress) and books that I have to give back that don't fit in my backpack, so I'm probably gonna use my tote bag only for storing that stuff. But remember, ONLY the extra important stuff that doesn't fit. Nothing else. OH, if sling bags annoy you use side/hip hanging bags. The ones that usually bikers use and that strap to the leg too. I use one for my EDC.

    • Biggest game changer was getting a sling to store your my flight stuff and the fiddly small stuff like my passport and phone. I may look like a mong in the airport with my teeny-tiny sling, but getting through security is literally a snap as I don't have to empty the pockets of my pants and coat, and knowing your passport is right in front of your chest instead of in the back of your bag is a well-worth piece of mind. Makes travel a lot more enjoyable when you know THE MOST IMPORTANT thing is right where you can see it, and not in some pickpockets' treasure haul.

  • I no longer eat on the plane and because of that, I’m fresher and no swollen feet when I arrive. For freshening up, I take one lemon with on the flight to wipe under my arms and intimate area with some lemon juice and warm water in the toilet on the plane. Works so, so, so well. With the other half of the Lemon, I have lemon water in the morning which freshens my breath nicely too.

  • I usually bring reusables with me like a waterbottle, my own utensils, hankerchief and an extra bag. They not only help me save money but also save the planet. Also a tube scarf is pretty versatile. I use mine as a eye mask, face mask, headband. Baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and a little bit of lemon juice can be substituted for a lot of toiletries such as dry shampoo, tooth paste, deodorant and mouthwash.

  • When traveling to a country with questionable water quality, bring a reusable water bottle that has a filter in it. I brought a LifeStraw Go Filter Bottle with 2-Stage Filtration (22 fl. oz.) with me to India and Nepal in last month. Since I had never used it before, I tested its effectiveness bit by bit. First, I used the filtered water to brush my teeth, then I started to take it with me on day trips, sipping from it periodically.

  • I travelled 18 months straight with 28 Liter Mission Workshop Rummy carried on planes the whole time, through summer and winter. I've probably used this bag for about 7 years worth of travel in total. Your bag is too big, it'll often get rejected as carry on and you can't put under seat in front (the best option for total access and not relying on overhead bins). Messenger bags are better, you have easy access without taking them off. You have way too many packing cubes within cubes (that's a lot of bulk and weight) with zero compression. Use 1 or 2 compression sacks for all your clothes (apart from stuff you don't want to crease, but including jackets and hoodies) - will save a ton of space and let you carry a smaller bag. Shampoo bars are hard to replace on the road, just take 100ml bottle with shower gel and refill from places you stay as you go. A second bag, another nono, it's yet more weight. If you get your bag down to 28 liters or below you can use that as your day pack too, it's already small. Less duplication bro. Same for fanny pack, yet more bulk and weight. Buff is cool, been using merino for 20 years.

  • Being a bit of a photography geek I would like to chime in on camera lenses. Zoom lenses are great and all but make sure to get one that has a wide aperture across the whole range of focal lengths. Most „travel zooms“ with an aperture of 3.5-6.3 in my experience do ok in bright daylight but as soon as it gets a little darker (or overcast) they start to struggle. For most things a 28-70mm f/2.8 and a 50mm f/1.8 will do fine (I was lucky to get an f/1.4). You can even get by with just a 50mm. Your mileage will vary, of course. Stay away from specialty lenses like massive zoom lenses, T/S or fish eyes unless you are absolutely 100% sure you need them, which ties in with the idea of „get rid of stuff you rarely (if ever) use“. An extra pound or two of dead weight in glass quickly becomes a massive pain in the butt. I‘ve been there and I hated it. Speaking of „pain in the butt“: maybe a bit „duh“, but: bring spare batteries AND memory cards. Use smaller memory cards and swap them every once in a while. Sure, having one massive card that holds two weeks worth of pictures may seem convenient, but if that one card either dies or gets lost, you will beat yourself up over it. If you can, dump your raw files (or at least some JPGs) online. Maybe even mail memory cards home. A Gnarbox may be another option (but I have not yet had the opportunity to try one). If you are serious about photo stuff it is easy to end up packing everything bar the kitchen sink. My 2 cents. Hope this helps!

Multifunctional items (pick up a buff) 4. Merino wool (natures magic fabric) 5. Keep everything fresh (cedarwood) 6. Get some solid soap (multifunctional) 7. Bring a compact bag 8. Plan your flight (bring a sling) 9. Strategize to save money (bring nuts) 10. Practice your trip (try to live from your back when home)

  • My tip: mail things to yourself instead of carrying them. You can mail things to yourself at a family members home if you’re going there, or to a hotel if you’ve made reservations ahead of time. If you don’t have a reservation, look into the post office and see if you can mail something to yourself c/o general delivery. Many post offices will hold items for you for a short period of time. This way you can have your full bottle of shampoo, your favorite pocket knife, or whatever you feel you need that either the airlines wont allow, or is just too much weight or takes too much space in your bag. In fact, you can often travel with just a small hand bag or fanny pack, carrying your ticket, I.D., a comb and lip balm, just a few basics, and just mail all your clothes and toiletries ahead. This works for the return trip as well!

    Marcus WilesMarcus Wiles11 ਮਹੀਨੇ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ
    • Hey Marcus - we've found that this can vary depending on what airlines you fly with and how full the bag is. The compression straps help make this bag fit into smaller spaces if your pack isn't at full capacity. We recommend checking with the airlines before you fly as the size specifications do tend to differ from airline to airline. Hope this helps! 😊 - Rebecca

  • Instead of a water bottle I take a stainless steel flask with me on each trip. This is clean and empty; when I reach security I take the top off and leave it open in the bin so that security can check it. Once I’m through security I get it filled with coffee at Starbucks or wherever - and this will then last me for a short haul flight ... it’s easy to just keep sipping through the flight, and you get a discount from the coffee shop for using your own cup.

    • Hey! Merino wool is the finest wool fiber there is, making it more comfortable than other alternatives on the market. Plus, it’s also hypoallergenic so you likely won’t have any skin reactions at all. AND it’s naturally static resistant.

    • Sumsum HUI [11U07S] Quality brands that say anti-microbial like Patagonia and Smart Wool truly resist odor. I sweat a LOT when I hike and my Patagonia shirt can go on 5-8 long hikes without washing and still smell fine. I do rinse it if it’s totally soaked.

    • Hey! We get what you're saying, wearing the same clothing repeatedly isn't for everyone, but it can be done. We've been able to wear the same t-shirt for 10-20 wears depending on the conditions. 👍 - Rebecca

  • I'm a truck driver. What is the best way to live out of one bag. But keep your dirty clothes seperate from your clean clothes. That has been an ongoing issue.

    Jerry KinninJerry Kinninਸਾਲ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ
    • Hey Jerry! There are a few different things you can try, to find out what works best for you. You can take an extra packing cube with you for dirty clothes, you can buy packing cubes that are reversible and have a clean or dirty side so that you can switch them around. You can use a spare dry sack or even a plastic bag. Plus you can also get a pack that has a separate section (like the shoe compartment on the Aer Travel Pack 2 packhacker.com/travel-gear/aer/travel-pack-2-2/ ) to separate your clothes from the rest of the bag. In addition to this, you can also take along a wash bag like the Scrubba packhacker.com/travel-gear/scrubba/wash-bag/ so that you can wash your clothes as you go and this can double up as a dry sack too. Hope this helps! - Rebecca

  • Some great travel tips! Just a comment on Zips. When a zip fails that is usually game over - coats, jackets, bags, pouches - buying cheap is definetlty a false economy, buying light means more fragile, so a good shout to think about zip usage - once a day usage packing cube - light and / or lower cost, frequent daily use - go with high quality gear. I have a Lowe Alpine day pack - used daily for some ten years - the fabric is now wearing at rub points - but the Zips still work great! Happy travels...
