Travel Gear

An unsorted list of travel gear I pack in my backpack. Inspired by Matt Mullenweg's "What's in my bag" post.


My preferred backpacks

Goruck GR1 (26L)
This is my daily backpack that I use for commuting to work. This daypack is even big enough for a weekend away.
Goruck GR2 (40L)
The GR2 is great for longer trips. I used it to travel around Japan for 3 weeks. And the best thing is, it is still a carry-on backpack.

What's in my backpack?

Field Pocket GR2
4L field pocket that carries all sorts of small items. Like all the Apple adapters and cables. I also have the Echo and GR1 field pockets that I can use as packing cubes.
Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch
With charger.
Apple World Travel Adapter Kit
Handy kit with all the adapters that you may need. The work for the laptop and iPad charger. So I take an iPad charger with me for charging my iPhone.
WakaWaka Power 10
A powerbank to charge my iPhone a couple of times (10.000 mAh). And I charge the powerbank with the WakaWaka solar panels.
Dopper water bottle
Stay hydrated. Drink water. But make sure it's empty before you go through security at the airport.
Secrid wallet
I actually have 2 wallets. One is in my pocket with the most important cards that I use daily. And a second one with less important cards and some emergency cash.
Eden pocket knife
Cheap, solid and sharp knife. Always handy. But make sure you do not take it with you when you are flying.
Fenix E15 flashlight
Small but powerful flashlight. Handy when you need to find a lock in the middle of the night. I make sure it's always in the same spot in my backpack. That way I can always find it by touch when it's dark.
Moleskin notebook
When I need/want to write something down. In case of emergency some important phone numbers and details are on the first page. And I always cary more then one pen.
Pacsafe TAS cable lock
Not the best lock, doesn't feel very solid, but it works. For example for lockers in a hostel or to lock my backpack.
Bose QuietComfort 25 Noise Cancelling headphones
I can't imagine flying without these. To me, they are essential for a comfortable flight.
Sea to Summit See Pouch (medium)
Handy and light dopp kit. Because you can see through it, makes it very easy to go through security at an Airport when traveling with only carry-on.
Other small items
Umbrella, lip balm, tissues, painkillers.
