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 https://amzn.to/2EwckTL
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 https://amzn.to/2MYYekv
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 https://amzn.to/2xaLLiM
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 https://amzn.to/2x9cLiO
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 https://amzn.to/2Ivtwva
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.
