The bag that Zoom Travels with

My Bag:

I haven’t met anybody traveling for a long period of time, or even traveling at all, with a smaller bag then mine. I have a 33L Osprey Talon. And I love it. It’s the perfect size. It’s small enough to carry onto a plane (under 10kg) yet just big enough to carry everything I need. Before leaving I read a lot about bag size. One key point I found was that if you have a bigger bag, you will fill it. A small bag forces me to keep it simple and only carry what I absolutely need.

No “Just In Case” Items:

Just in case items are stupid. I like the Minimalists idea of 20 Dollars, 20 Minutes. A lot of people, not just travelers, hang on to items that they MIGHT need. “MAYBE.. IF THIS HAPPENS.. I MIGHT need this.” Get rid of it. You can buy it somewhere if you really need it but chances are you don’t. I brought a few things I thought I might need. If I haven’t used it in awhile and it doesn’t like like I might, I get rid of it. It’s freeing, try it.

Favorite Item:

Probably my favorite / most useful item is my Marmot waterproof shell. I love it. It’s light and easy to pack, it’s sleek and looks good everywhere, and it’s waterproof and a windbreaker. If I pair it with my long sleeve Smart Wool and I can take on just about any weather. But it also turns heads at the club. It wasn’t cheap but I’m glad I spent the money on it. A quality shell is worth it.
