A collection of articles on essential travel gear, minimalism and ultralight packing.
If you’ve been travelling the world for a while, you’ll probably have noticed that most backpackers carry pretty enormous backpacks on their shoulders.
It’s not uncommon to backpackers lugging around 80, 90 or even 100 litre backpacks and often doing so in oppressively hot, humid weather too.
There are backpacks on sale everywhere these days; in retail shops, in marketplaces, in online stores, in flea markets etc.
It’s pretty easy to find a decent backpack these days if you can afford one. But finding the perfect backpack for travel? That’s not so easy.

However, knowing what to look for is one thing, but the actual process of comparing different backpacks can take weeks of research and we know how difficult it can be to arrive at a final decision.
