These are 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/3yzzdAh
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/34kzg4M
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 the quick dry aspect is essential in the Philippines.
Compression Packing Cubes https://amzn.to/3vmXFm9
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.
Quick Dry Towel https://amzn.to/3wx2ABg
A nice microfiber towel. Super absorbent, and quick drying, Packs small, plays big.
2 Pack Multi Charger https://amzn.to/3wx3RZ4
A 2 pack charger. Six foot cable, and 4 charging ends. It includes Apple, USB C, and USB Micro. (Good for charging, not for data)
LifeStraw Personal Water Filter https://amzn.to/2QRh5Rc
This microfilter will remove over 99% of bacteria & parasites. It also removes microplastics down to 1 micron. Filters up to 1,000 gallons. A good addition for any safety kit, or bug-out bag. (does not remove salt)
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 you know you won’t grab the blade accidentally. Even has storage for extra blades.
Dopp Bag https://amzn.to/3fJNrpn
My dopp bag is always too full, but this has plenty of room and is sturdy. I’ve got to have my shower kit with me.
