Road Trip II

This is the eBags EXO 2.0 Hard side Spinner, which is a great option to take on your road trip.

Depending on your travel style, you may want to carry either a suitcase or a backpack. It happened to me to pack relatively light, so I just needed a big backpack. Baggage - If you are looking for a suitcase to take on your road trip, you may want to check the bags EXO 2.0 Hard side Spinner , or the Samsonite Spinner LIFT . These two suitcases are durable and can easily fit in the boot of most cars. The spinner wheels in the suitcases allow them to be wrapped around easily.

Kelly Redwing 50 - The Redwing 50 was the main backpack that I used during a road trip. The Redwing 50 is a 50 liter internal frame travel backpack capacity. Unlike most other travel backpacks, the Redwing is not terribly big and does not make you look too much like a backpacker. Also, the neutral colors of the backpack do not attract as much attention. The package barely satisfies carry airline about the requirements, so I had to be careful not to pack them. You can read my total Kelty Redwing 50 review here. You may also want to check out the Kelly Migratory Route and the Osprey Talon Series , which are the two travel backpacks that I've heard wonders other travelers talk about.

REI flash 18 Package that I brought to Peru

This is the flash REI 18 Package, which I brought to my road trip and used for day trips REI flash 18 - In addition to my Kelty Redwing 50, I also brought the REI flash 18 , which is an 18-liter backpack. When we arrived at our destination after driving, I would like to have my 18 liter backpack while we were touring the area for the day. I usually pack the backpack with some essentials such as a bottle of water, camera, cash and snacks. My backpack or primary suitcase would stay in the hotel or in the car. When it is not in use, I would like to pack flash 18 on my Redwing 50 or in my luggage. The package weighs less than a pound and can be rolled up to occupy less space, which makes it a good choice to be a secondary backpack. See my review of flash 18 here.

Clothes:

Columbia base layer used in the packing list Argentina

This is the Columbia base layer, which I often wore during our road trip.

This minimalist list of clothes that filled me while on a road trip:

Note: Depending on your needs and activities, you may have to bring more or less clothes. Generally, it is not necessary to wear too many clothes since you can always wash your clothes in the hotel.

1 Pair of jeans - Jeans are perfect to wear on a road trip, as they are durable and versatile. Jeans can be heavy and take up a lot of space in your suitcase, but its versatility and durability make up for the extra weight. Depending on the length of your road trip, you may want to bring another pair of jeans.

1 Pair of convertible pants- Pants that become shorts are especially useful on while on a road trip, since they can be used as shorts when driving through a warm area and as pants when it is cold at night or in a coldest area. When it gets hot during the day, you can easily unzip convertibles into shorts. Some convertible pants like the PrAna Stretch Sion Convertible Pants are water resistant and UV protection. Convertible pants are also much easier to wash by hand and are quick drying than jeans.

2 Pair of sport shorts / Shorts -Sports shorts are casual, lightweight and can even be used as pajamas. If you are planning to travel to a hot one, or exercise your hotel, sports shorts are extremely useful.

3 T-shirts - I prefer for my travels shirts to be made of materials such as polyester instead of cotton. Polyester is generally lighter, easier to wash and dry your hands faster. I would recommend Patagonia Capilene 1 Silkweight T-shirt , which is fast-drying, UV-protective and odor-resistant.

1 Polo- For dinner at some more elegant restaurants.

2 Long-sleeve shirts - I've brought two long-sleeved shirts, one is theColumbia Baselayer medium weight Mock long sleeve collar , which he often wore. The Columbia base coat is both tough and extremely hot while being light odor.

1 Rain Jacket - Depending on where you are traveling to, you may or may not want to take a rain jacket with you . Waterproof jackets with waterproof and breathable technologies, such as GORE-TEX, are suitable for serious outdoor enthusiasts and can handle the most extreme conditions. They can be expensive, but they are worth the cost if you use them often. If you are not planning on wearing your rain jacket often, you can only bring a poncho.

1 Jacket- You should definitely wear a jacket with you, just in case. I wore the First Ascension Microtherm Down with hood , which is extremely light and moderately warm.

1 Swimsuits - If you are planning on swimming at your destination.

Underwear - Quantity depends on the length of your trip, although I would not bring them plus 7 pairs of underwear.

4 Pairs of socks - Socks are easy to wash by hand, so you probably will not have to bring too many. I brought 3 pairs of ankle socks underneath, and 1 pair of warm long merino wool socks for the coldest weather. You can read my review of my merino wool socks here. Make sure you have extra space inside your backpack or suitcase, because you can come across several sites to buy souvenirs or goods.
