1:00 What kind of backpack to take?
3:04 What clothes to bring?
6:06 Essential items to bring
9:22 How to keep your stuff safe and secure

WHICH BACKPACK

This is the backpack I use for most of my trips:
Caribee Sky Master 80

Remember the reasons I explained in the video for getting this expensive backpack, you might be fine with a much cheaper one.

If I'm on a shorter trip that just stays in one climate and therefore I don't need as much stuff, I take this instead:
Osprey Fairpoint 40
