This is my ULTIMATE LONG TERM TRAVEL CARRY ON packing list for the ultralight backpacker. It’s all about minimalist living, bringing only the essential items and being as lightweight as possible.
In this video, I’ll show you how to pack for carry on, all the hiking and travel gear I use, all of the cameras and how I pack my bag with tips, hacks and ideas for a trip to the tropics and South East Asia.
With this packing list, you’ll be able to jump on a plane with one bag for cabin luggage and be able to hop off and hike a mountain with the same pack! Trust me, I did this.
I don’t use a traditional backpack, instead, I use my Hyperlite Mountain Gear 2400 Windrider which is made out of incredibly strong and waterproof Dyneema Composite Fabric.
I’m a YouTuber, so need the extra camera gear like a drone, a microphone and an iPad, but for those who don’t make videos, this pack would be even lighter.
