Packing List

This is the list of gear / stuff that we pack. For more on our thoughts of how/what/why, see our post on Packing for Perpetual Travel.


GoLite Jam2 Backpack x 250L ultra-lightweight pack. Can be used as daypack / carryon. No longer available, but super reliable - we've had these since before our honeymoon hiking trip.
Samsonite spinnerLight weight / maximum checked bag size. Used primarily to carry all of Jr's gear (toys, books, clothes)
Chrome Messenger BagThis is my old bike commute bag. Still going strong years later, doing heavy duty as our laptop / electronics / carryon bag.
Cipu Backpack/Diaper bagWinnie's day pack/carry on/diaper bag. Hers is bright gold in color which makes it really easy to find her in a crowd :)
Packing cubesUsed to arrange/separate clothing for easy access/packing. 1 for shirt, 1 for underwear/socks. When we arrive at a new Airbnb, unpacking is as easy as dropping these into a dresser.


MacBook Air x 2We each have a 13" laptop.
Twelve South Macbook CaseThis holds both laptops and looks just like a vintage book. Great for putting on a shelf when you go out. Nobody wants to steal an old book.
