The ultimate travel gear

You have your plane ticket now, booked your hotel and researched your destination. It’s time to pack your bag!

Listed below is my travel and photography packing-list that best suits my needs on the road. I’ve tried and tested most of the items on numerous trips and activities, and every single one of them has earned its place in my backpack (so is the backpack itself).

Bear in mind, however, that each person has it’s own travel style and what I use may not be what you need. I travel mostly to warm and humid locations – if you try to use my clothing advises in Sweden or Alaska, you will freeze to death.

Having said that, I believe you would find most of the items pretty useful or at least you’d get an idea what to prepare for your own adventure.

Basic travel gear

[easyazon_link identifier=”B01EKSDXOW” locale=”UK” tag=”globalcasta0e-21″]Osprey Farpoint 70[/easyazon_link]

more info

Farpoint 70 is actually not one, but two backpacks. A 55L and a 15L daypack. You can attach them together, and put in the cargo as a single luggage.

Extremely comfortable + lifetime guarantee makes it my number 1 backpack. Get size S/M for women and M/L for men.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B00ZLMMZS2″ locale=”US” tag=”globalcastawa-20″]Trail Running Shoes[/easyazon_link]

more info

Since you are going to walk a lot more on your trip than you do back home, you need comfortable, light and breathable shoes. This is exactly what running shoe design is centered around.

Why trail running?

They have a grippable soles, making them not only comfortable on the city streets but also great for treks and outdoor activities.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B013UZGUBY” locale=”US” tag=”globalcastawa-20″]Scarf / Shemagh [/easyazon_link]

more info

Having a scarf with you is a good idea for every part of the world and absolutely essential one for south-east Aisa. Locals there love their A/C so much, that walking into a public store, or using any type of transportation may give you a cold in no time.

You can also use it as a blanket,a towel, a hat or to cover your legs/shoulders when you enter into a temple.

luna mono sandals
more info

Lunas are described as an outdoor adventure, hiking, and barefoot running sandals.

 Yeah, people really do run and hike in these – imagine how comfortable they must be. Also with their Vibram sole, you can use them at any ( and I do mean any! ) outdoor activity.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B01KMXS2TK” locale=”UK” tag=”globalcasta0e-21″]Travel Umbrella[/easyazon_link]]

more info
Rainy weather makes stunning photos but is awful for your gear.

I use this umbrella since it can withstand heavy wind, dries quickly and it doesn’t take too much space in my bag.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B012GR5JJQ” locale=”UK” tag=”globalcasta0e-21″]Buff (3)[/easyazon_link]

more info
Buffs are my secret to stay out there in the heat.
Seriously, put one of those on your head, pour a little water on it, and suddenly you have a private A/C.

This versatile piece of headwear can also be used as an eye mask, neck warmer, hood, hair band or even as a skirt ( haven’t try that last one ).

[easyazon_image align="none" height="500" identifier="B00SBP7BYO" locale="UK" src="https://images-eu.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/510MPqURvJL.jpg" tag="globalcasta0e-21" width="375"]

[easyazon_link identifier=”B00SBP7BYO” locale=”UK” tag=”globalcasta0e-21″]G-Shock [/easyazon_link]

more info
Having a watch is by no means essential, but it’s quite handy in a lot of cases.

I use Casio G-Shock because it can take all kind of abuses, it’s not expensive, and most importantly- it does not look expensive       ( you don’t want to attract unnecessary attention with flashy accessories ).

[easyazon_image align="none" height="500" identifier="B07219HN9L" locale="UK" src="https://images-eu.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41D5Qpds4OL.jpg" tag="globalcasta0e-21" width="500"]

Sunglasses are one of the easiest things to lose on the road, so take a cheap ones with you.

Also make sure they have UV protection.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B06XW974X2″ locale=”UK” tag=”globalcasta0e-21″]Water Shoes[/easyazon_link]

more info
A must have on island destinations. If there are snorkeling activities – there are corals.

And if there are corals – there are also dead corals. Dead corals will destroy your feet if unprotected, so make sure you always have a pair of these in your bag.

more info
You can rent one of those on every snorkeling tour, but if you don’t want to have a used snorkel in your mouth or you intend to go snorkeling on your own, this kit will do it.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B00JSXGEJQ” locale=”UK” tag=”globalcasta0e-21″]Travel Towel[/easyazon_link]

more info
If you have a jam-packed itinerary and you spend only a day or two at a place, the last thing you want is a wet towel in your bag.

Those towels also take less space than the regular ones.

[easyazon_image align="none" height="500" identifier="B075MQFT2X" locale="UK" src="https://images-eu.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51fVk6j95wL.jpg" tag="globalcasta0e-21" width="500"]

[easyazon_link identifier=”B075MQFT2X” locale=”UK” tag=”globalcasta0e-21″]Dry Bag[/easyazon_link]

more info
A must-have for island destinations.

You are bound to take a boat trip there, and on a boat trip, everything gets wet.

I have a 30L water bag, and when I go diving/island hopping, I often put my whole camera bag, towels, and some snacks inside.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B0799GPQHJ” locale=”US” tag=”globalcastawa-20″]Detachable Pants [/easyazon_link]

more info
Detachable leggings are so useful. If you travel from cold to hot, no need to change on the plane, just remove your leggings.
You are going to a temple, but they don’t allow shorts inside – just put on your leggings and you’re good to go.

[easyazon_image align="none" height="500" identifier="B0732J2ZP4" locale="US" src="https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51%2BTwkWiqXL.jpg" tag="globalcastawa-20" width="500"]

more info
For the rainy days and cold nights. I pack up two since I rarely have a jacket with me.

Look for hoodies made from merino wool – it’s a unique wool that dries up quickly, and it keeps you warm, but also cold when needed.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B01MSDNDJK” locale=”US” tag=”globalcastawa-20″]HeatGear Socks (4)[/easyazon_link]

more info
The Under Armour ones are my favorite.
-Material wicks sweat & dries really fast.
-Anti-odor technology prevents the growth of odor-causing microbes.
-Embedded arch support reduces foot fatigue.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B00P2K0NHI” locale=”US” tag=”globalcastawa-20″]Underwear (4)[/easyazon_link]

more info
Under Armour wins here again (I have no connections to them, I swear).

Their moisture transport system wicks sweat and dries quickly and they are super comfortable.

[easyazon_image align="none" height="500" identifier="B01LWV9RBG" locale="US" src="https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51Bj9sL7wSL.jpg" tag="globalcastawa-20" width="442"]

[easyazon_link identifier=”B01LWV9RBG” locale=”US” tag=”globalcastawa-20″]Boardshorts (2)[/easyazon_link]

more info
Sometimes I have more than one dive per day, and I hate to slip on wet shorts, that’s why I carry two with me.
If you travel light, there’s no need for a second pair.

I have a 30L water bag, and when I go diving/island hopping, I often put my whole camera bag, towels, and some snacks inside.

[easyazon_link identifier=”B072QGNFMC” locale=”US” tag=”globalcastawa-20″]MacBook Pro[/easyazon_link]

more info
I used to be a very anti-Apple guy. Their products looked overpriced while their hardware was nothing impressive. I got the MacBook Pro only for its retina display and compact size.

Nowadays, I’m the first one to admit I was wrong. Everything in the Mac screams quality, and I believe, this blog would not have looked the way it looks now, if it wasn’t for it. The price is quite a steep one, but if you can afford it, you won’t be disappointed.

more info
State of the art infinity display, impressive camera, water and dust resistant, and also not that expensive for a high-end smartphone.

Make sure the phone is unlocked, you want to be able to use it with other SIM cards too.

more info
It would’ve been so awesome to have the same plugs all around the world. But since this is not the case, you need one of those to be sure you can power up your gadgets wherever you are.

Another neat feature is that you can plug in more than one device in this one, including USBs.

more info
The guy who invented E-readers should be declared a saint! Seriously, how cool is it to have all your library with you, in a size of a small book?

I travel everywhere with my Kindle Paperwhite, and I can’t imagine the long plane/train/bus trips without it.

more info
One of my worst nightmares is to lose my pictures. I back them up once in Apple Cloud and once on an external hard drive.

I’ll have to get a second one though, since mine is about to get full.

Traveling with a new Mac has its downsides too.Since there are only 2 USB C slots on it, i have to carry this hub to connect my other gadgets.

Still worth it though!

more info
My phone battery rarely survives a long day of travel so carrying around a power bank with me has become like second nature.

Make sure it’s not bigger than 20000mAh, or it may get confiscated at the airport. 10000mAh is the safest choice.

You can use the whole Nikon lens variety, and it doesn’t cost as much as a car.

Perfect travel camera, especially for beginners.

more info
This is my fast prime lens. With its F1.8 it’s perfect for portraits or low life situations. I rarely shoot those, however, so it’s my least used lens.

The low price though, makes it a must in every Nikon lens kit.

more info
My telephoto zoom lens is neither fast nor expensive. It makes the work done, but you can’t create a good looking bokeh or get a satisfying photo after dark.

It’s great for beginners or photographers who rarely use telephoto lenses. I plan to upgrade it as soon as I can.

more info
My wide angle lens is also the lens that spends the most time on my camera. Its steady build and excellent picture quality complement the 105 degrees perspective it gives me so I can shoot those alluring landscapes and buildings.
With f3.5 I can use it indoors too without worrying too much about the artificial lightning.

This Sigma is one of the best wide angle lenses for crop cameras and the best one for Nikon.

Action cameras have become a very popular travel cameras.They are tiny, easy to use and you can use them anywhere.

There are Hero5 and Hero6 now, but Hero4 is still an excellent way to save some money and have a quality action camera with you. It has a touchscreen, WiFi and it makes 12Mpx pictures and 1080×60 videos. Combine it with some GoPro accessories, and you have all the tools you need to make unique photos/videos.

Make sure you have a spare battery with you, GoPro eats them for no time.

more info
Every photographer must have a tripod with him. To make those creamy long exposure photos or just to make a selfie for Instagram, you absolutely need one in your bag.

The ZOMEI travel tripod includes ball head with quick release plate, fits well in my backpack, it’s not heavy, and I’ve never had any problems with its steadiness.

more info
One of the biggest mistakes, aspiring travel photographers do, is using the strap they get in their camera kit. It not only kills your neck, but the big NIKON/ CANNON logo on it is an invitation to the local criminals.

I’ve tested quite a few strap types and found out the sling one is the most comfortable for me. It may look like an unnecessary expense, but try surviving a 12 hour day with your DSLR on a kit strap around your neck, and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

more info
The idea behind the GorillaPod is to use it flexible and wrappable legs to secure your camera almost anywhere.

Since you can’t always have the big tripod with you, GorillaPods small size makes it perfect for a backup.

You can carry with you all the time and make sure you never miss this surprisingly pink sunset or those long exposure-perfect hidden waterfall.

There are a few different sizes so make sure you get the right one depending on your camera size.

more info
The bad thing about action cameras is that they’re useless without accessories. The good thing is, while the original GoPro gadgets may cost you a fortune, you can get Chinese knock-offs for a fraction of the price. 50 pieces of mounts, straps, and floaties (even comes with a case) would cost you less than one original GoPro accessory.

The quality is satisfying, and the only thing you need is another selfie stick (the one in the kit is awful) to be fully prepared for every action camera situation.

The latest addition to my photo arsenal. Dji Mavic Air is the smallest travel drone you can find, but don’t be fooled by its size!
This little guy has an amazing camera and state of the art software that makes flying it as easy as it gets.

Having an aerial view is a big plus for a photographer and gives a lot of new possibilities.

more info
Imagine getting at 5 AM, setting your tripod in the water and waiting for the sun to comes up giving you that perfect beach photo…then you realize you are out of space! No matter where you go or how many pictures you expect to do, always have back up cards with you.

Sandisk Extreme are heatproof, waterproof freezeproof and also super fast (up to 95Mb).

I use 2 for the DSLR, 1 for the GoPro, 1 for the drone, and one for the phone and never had a signle problem with them.

The drone and GoPro use a smaller version – micro card, so make sure you get the correct size when you’re buying.

more info
It’s exactly what it looks like – a plastic bag with a hole in it, to cover your camera with when it rains.

I know it seems stupid, but you know: If it looks stupid and it works – it’s not stupid.

more info
The ND filter acts like sunglasses for your lens. It’s used for creating long exposure photos (if you’ve seen a photo where the water looks more like a fog – this is long exposure). Hoya are one of the best in the business, and you can be sure you won’t sacrifice picture quality when you use one of their filters.

Six stops ND filters are perfect for long exposure.

Make sure you check the size of your lens before you purchase a filter.

more info
Billingham Bagas have been creating camera bags for the last 50 years, and they’re still handmade in England (thus comes the steep price). Their bags are water resistant, anti-theft, extremely durable, and the best of all – they don’t look like a camera bag at all! Whit thousands of dollars worth of equipment inside, the last thing you want is curious looks in your bag.

And their design is absolutely gorgeous. My friends call it – The Indiana Jones bag.

more info
Amazons camera backpack can rival Kindle as the best Amazon product. It has everything – Laptop department, enough space for DSLR and 6 (!) lenses, side straps for a tripod and enough pockets for the other gadgets you need. It’s small enough to be taken as a carry on luggage but big enough to fit clothes for a 3-4 days trip. Unlike other backpacks, It also comes with a free rain sleeve.

Oh, and I forgot to mention – it’s the cheapest (by far) camera backpack on the market.
