My Travel Essentials

My travel essentials 

These items I use on all my trips.  The links are affiliate links, but these are items I use on almost every trip I take.  I will edit the list as I get new toys.

OutdoorMaster 50L Backpack

The backpack is by far my favorite bag I have ever owned. Numerous pockets, extra connection points, and a built in rain cover. This is now my go to bag for weekend or multiple month long trips!

Columbia Convertible Pants

These pants are my everyday wear. I usually do not need the legs, but they are wonderful shorts. I love the light (but sturdy) material, and they quick dry aspect is essential in the Philippines.

Compression Packing Cubes

Cut your packing space dramatically. I was never a big fan of packing cubes, but the compression cube is great. I really like using them.


Dopp Bag

My dopp bag is always too full, but this has plenty of room and is sturdy. Got to have my shower kit with me.

Safety Razor Case

When I fly I have to check my dopp kit because I prefer a safety razor. This is a great case to carry it in.  Keeps the razor protected, and keeps you know you won’t grab the blade accidentally.  Even has storage for extra blades.
