What you got in that bag?

Friday, August 27, 2010


As pictured above, here's what goes in Todd's Kelty Redwing 3100 for our trip:
  • 3 pairs boardshorts
  • 1 pair canvas pants
  • 1 pair "shants" (pants that unzip to become shorts)
  • 3 t-shirts, mostly dark colors (had to sneak two PPJ shirts in there)
  • 1 button-up, long-sleeve shirt
  • light fleece
  • anorak (light rain jacket)
  • baseball cap
  • 3 pairs underwear (of course) and socks
  • Havaianas flip-flops
  • Merrel water shoes
  • bandana
  • Pelican waterproof case
  • Flip HD video camera
  • Contacts supplies & glasses
  • Toiletries
  • Stack of Passport Junkie stickers
  • Notebook & pens
  • Liter Nalgene
Juli sports the Kelty Coyote 4750 W (that W is for WOMAN), she gets to bring:
  • 2 sundresses
  • 3 burkas
  • 3 pairs pants (2 shants)
  • 2 pairs of shorts
  • 3 tank tops, 4 t-shirts
  • light fleece
  • two hats - rollup hat and baseball hat
  • First aid kit
  • sandals
And then we have one basic backpack that we use for a daypack, in which we bring:
  • Books
  • Cameras (one SLR and one point-and-shoot)
  • Powerbars just in case
  • 1/2 liter Nalgene
The general rules we try to follow are:
  • Carry-on only - no checked bags
  • mostly dark clothing (to hide stains of course),
  • stuff that packs light and will dry quickly (no jeans)
