New travel gear for long-lasting backpacking trip.

This is the first like “what we packed”- blog post. We haven’t packed or even rehearsal packed yet, but we already have almost everything we need. In this post however there is none camera gears or any electronics. We acquired those quite a bit. (Could write a separate post from those..)

Oh well, getting the point:

BACKPACK

wE BOUGHT THESE AT FIRST. wE TRIED ON SEVERAL DIFFERENT BACKPACKS, BECAUSE ESPECIALLY WHILE HIKING BACKPACK NEEDS TO suit well. we decided to choose these; Osprey aura 65 liters for jenna and osprey aether 70 liters for eemeli. everything should fit in these.

DAY PACK

at first we bought ospreys rucksacks for both of us as a day packs, but finally we decided to buy a camera pack for a second pack., where we can put all our cameras and camera gears in well organized. it was a great purchase! likewise this ospreys rucksack feels very comfortable on the back!

SOME ANOTHER BAG

it’s a good idea to took with you some another bag/sack/beach bag, which you can take with you just to the beach or groceries or something like that. something lighter than a rucksack. this is quite handy, cause it goes on small space.

WATERPROOF BAGS

This bigger one is 20 liters, i think. you can example take it with you on a swim, stuff on the pack and the pack on the back. All stays dry. and this goes on the small space when folding.

we bought also another one, a little bit smaller version, cause these are so handy just with packing. is your towel still wet? are your shoes muddy? put those in these sacks, so you don’t need to worry about other stuff getting wet or dirty in your backpack.

MORE BAGS

i think these was kind of waterproofs also. the best thing is that these are colorful and all are in different colors. why we need these? in the backpack stuff goes easily scattered and it’s hard to find anything in there any other way than to empty the whole backpack. with these you can sort your stuff.

PACKING CUBES

same goes with these packing cubes. these are extremely handy in clothing storage and keep them in order.

TOILETRY BAG

super handy foldable toilet bag, which you can open up like this and put it hang on rack or something. it’s great in hostels!

FITNESS BANDS

because we are interested about our work out possibilities on the road and we know that in sometimes it can be difficult to find any gyms or other work out space, so these bands are a great way to exercise with resistance even in your hostel room.

EXTRA STRAPS

well, as you cAN SEE from the picture; with these you can attach everything extra stuff in your backpack. Or if anything breaks down, you have extra straps.

CARABINERS

same ideology as with straps; you can attach things. These don’t take much space in your backpack and these could be very useful.

POCKETKNIFE

i think i don’t have to say anything about this. pocketknife is just a must- thing while travelling.

HEADLAMP

There isn’t always light. flashlight is a smart thing to have with you, and the headlamp even smarter cause then you have your hands free to do anything.

SMALL WATERPROOF POUCH

there’s gonna be beaches where you shouldn’t leave your valuable things while going to ocean. you might get robbed. this is totally waterproof, and you can hang it on the neck or over a shoulder, and you can fit your cellphone, credit cards, cash and keys in it.

RAINWEAR

When it rains in Asia, it really rains. umbrella might be quite useless and it doesn’t protect you completely from the raining. so we bought rain jackets and rain pants to both of us. we are staying dry!

CAMEL BACK

when we bought these, we were thinking about hikes and long day trips, when you are drinking a lot of water, and it’s so annoying to carry several water bottles with you, so we bought these three liters camel backs. It goes to your backpack and you drink from the tube. this is sooooooo handy!

OWN WATER BOTTLE

you should take your own water bottle with you always while travelling and fill it up instead of always buying new plastic bottles of water. eemeli decided to take a saving with this and he bought these bottles which costed 1 euro each, and he taped hooks to the bottles himself. haha! Let’s see how long these will last.

MUMMY LINER

everybody recommends the silk sheet, but those are quite pricey. so in this time we saved money with these, and we got mummy liners made of organic cotton. we can always change these to silky ones if these aren’t suitable. some hostels might have questionable sheets, so it’s not a bad idea to take your own with you.

MICROFIBER TOWEL

microfiber towel is a must thing to have. it dries up very quickly and goes in very small space. We have two towels for both of us and a one small one for general use.

HIKING BOOTS

when thinking the hike in nepal, the hiking boots are the most important thing to get. we have bought these a one year ago that we have had the time to “run in” those shoes. we don’t want any blisters.

Later there will be a complete listing about EVERYTHING we are packing to take with us, and more specifically about cosmetics, clothes and first aid kit and everything like that. As soon as we will decide to what to pack.

We also would love to hear your tips for packing and what did you take with you for long-lasting backpacking trip?
