Packing – What to bring

1 Comment

It’s not easy to pack light, all the time you usually don’t carry the luggage all that much. This time however I want to pack so I can easily carry what I bring along without any stress. With that in mind we went out to get me a new backpack.

Oh my god! It’s a jungle out there! The time when backpack where an easy buy is long gone. Luckily we got good help at Sportsnett @ Klingenbergpassasjen in Oslo.

With good guidance I ended up with a 65 liter Arc’teryx Altra. I chose this for a few different reasons:

Easy access to “what’s in the bottom” through the opening that goes all the way down.

Altra65
Adjustable height settings for shoulder straps Altra65Strop
Flexible, yet adjustable, hip straps (rotating Load Transfer Disc™) Altra65-hip

All in all I’m happy, but now starts the hard part… What to bring?!?

Humongen! The big guy! The man, the myth, the legend! And then theres' me. The nice guy in the house. The man without cooking skills, but with five stars on the Playstation. Boss at work, relaxed at home. What you see is what you get. Life is good. I choose it to be.

One thought on “Packing – What to bring

  1. I guess you already did, but if you didn’t – google “lightweight clothing for backpacking”. You might get some good ideas 🙂
