Packing for Backpacking

We’ve been trying different things for a while now.. Different clothes combinations, how to pack, etc and as of today we are basically packed (just need our toothbrushes and a few electronic devices that are charging).

Long story short, here is what I’m taking:

  • Waterproof suede boots
  • Black slim skate shoes
  • Black jeans
  • Black slacks
  • 1 T-shirt
  • 2 Polo shirts
  • 1 Long sleeve t-shirt
  • 1 Long sleeve button up shirt
  • 1 Thin black jumper
  • 1 Singlet
  • Snow pants
  • Snow jacket (includes fleece liner jacket inside that can be worn on it’s own)
  • Snow gloves
  • 1 Quick dry towel
  • Jocks and socks (about 5-6 of each)
  • Boardies
  • Thongs
  • Toiletries (Razors, shaving oil, alcohol wipes, toothbrush, toothpaste, travel medicine, etc)

Jess has a similar list, but specific to females – check out “What’s a girl to pack?

Aside from the clothing/living sort of gear we also have noise cancelling headphones, ear plugs (for the flight and staying in hostels), money belts, locks, my Windows Mobile phone (complete with maps of Europe/GPS), Jess’ digital camera, and a netbook.

Here’s some photos…
