The big day arrives.
Your suitcase is empty and you’re ready to go.
You pick up the first of many packs of your favourite travel-friendly gear and head for the next stop, the next town, the last place.
It’s a rite of passage.
It is also the most dangerous time in your life.
The next day, when you’ve packed up and ready to take off, you’re on your own.
You’re ready for a challenge.
You’ve already been through the journey.
How can you survive it?
The answer, of course, is to be prepared.
If you are going to travel the world, you need to know how to navigate it.
Your luggage will make you a better traveller, so prepare yourself.
The backpack is an indispensable tool, and a backpacker has to be a master at it.
You can use it for anything you want, but it’s most useful when used to transport everything from food to water to clothing.
It doesn’t matter if you’re heading to a restaurant, or heading to the beach, or a job interview, or even for a quick visit to a friend’s home.
Your backpack should be your best friend.
In this article, we’ll explore what you need, how to pack it, and what to expect in your backpack.
The essentials Pack essentials are what you’ll need for every day.
They include everything from toiletries to snacks, essentials that last for weeks or months, water purification systems, extra socks and underwear, and much more.
You might also want to consider the basics like a headlamp and a pair of gloves.
They’ll be invaluable if you need them, or you can get away without them.
Clothing and footwear A backpacker is well-suited for outdoor activities, but if you can’t take it, you might as well get a good pair of pants.
If it’s your first time in a backpack, consider going with something with a waterproof or breathable fabric.
You’ll be wearing it in all the wet weather, and that will be a comfort to your body.
The best waterproof and breathable fabrics are polyester, nylon or fleece.
If your backpack is water-resistant, a waterproof shirt and shorts will work well.
You should consider a hooded or waterproof jacket as well, as it can make your backpack even more versatile.
The basics and essentials Your basic travel gear should be as basic as possible.
This includes the essentials like a pack, a sleeping bag, a blanket, and waterproof clothes.
A small camera and tripod will be helpful in your first few days of backpacking.
You don’t need to bring a GPS tracker, but you’ll want one for long-distance travel.
If there’s a map, you’ll probably need it.
A camera will be useful if you don’t know where you are, and you’ll be surprised how many times you’ll have to find a map and zoom in to find it.
Waterproof clothing should be water resistant to 10 metres or less, and breathably to 10cm or less.
This means it will not attract dust or bacteria, so be sure you use a dry fabric.
Some waterproof clothing is designed for short-distance trips, so make sure you have a waterproof jacket for the journey, as well.
In warmer climates, consider wearing waterproof pants.
You won’t need them on long trips, but they will keep you dry and dry-proof in wet weather.
For the long-haul, you will need a pair that are breathable and waterproof, and will keep your clothing from getting soaked in rain or snow.
You also need to be aware of your bag’s water capacity.
If the water in your bag is too low, you won’t be able to keep your clothes dry in the rain or the snow.
Your bag’s capacity will depend on its weight.
The heavier the bag, the more space it will need to hold the clothes, but the more room the bag will need.
The bigger the bag is, the bigger it will be, so the more weight the bag needs to carry.
This can also affect how much space it takes up, as your bag can take up more space if it’s too small.
The smaller the bag and the more it weighs, the less space it can take.
You will want to make sure that the bag’s space is kept to a minimum.
Your basic backpack is the most important item in your kit.
You need to keep it up-to-date, and be prepared for unexpected emergencies.
You want to be able go anywhere you want with it, whether you’re going on a trip to Thailand, or camping in the wilderness, or on a short-term holiday.
Your best bet is to get a small GPS tracker with you.
This is your travel companion, and it will show you where you’re travelling and how far you’re moving.
It will also help you find the closest place you
