A lot depends on the style you're looking for. I'll also say that security in a bag is a myth. There are things to discourage certain behavior, but ultimately a bag should never be seen as a secure container. (after all it can always be cut)

What I chose.

I traveled for about a month in Europe staying in hostels. Even though it was only a month I could have traveled for about a year (adding only a tablet) with the bag/things I brought.

Osprey Farpoint 40 Travel Backpack - $150 (Discontinued)

[Osprey Farpoint 40 Travel Backpack

  • $160 (New Version)](

    I love this bag but it might not be the single best option for you. It's low profile, turns into a duffle bag (more about that later) and although it doesn't look like a school backpack, it doesn't standout like this either.

    The reason I love that it turns into a duffle bag is because theres a semi hidden velcro pocket in the bottom where the cover rolls into. This is a great place to sew or velcro a small zippered wallet or bag to store extra money or valuables. It's not secure as much as its hidden. This won't help you if they steal the whole bag, but it will help you if they just ransack the place and steal from the open compartments.

    Other Options

    There are a ton of other options. I suggest watching the VagaBrothers Video - How to Choose the BEST Travel BACKPACK | Pros & Cons Minimalist Backpack Review and Travel Tips: Packing Hacks, Tips & Essentials

    The F Stop bags look great, but are pretty pricy. Depending on what lenses you're bringing (18-55mm kit lens VS 70-200mm VR f2.8) it may or may not be worth it for size and configurability. I personally bought a Sony a6000 and left my big DSLR at home. That was actually a really good choice for the type of trip I did, but if I was going for a year (like you are) I understand needing the big camera. You might want to get camera/lens inserts like this (but not necessarily that one, I just clicked on the first one I saw on amazon) to store and protect those other lenses.

    Hope that helps.

    The following is copy and pasted from an email I sent to family friends traveling abroad. It gives links and ideas for things that help when traveling minimally.


  • 2 Mini cologne bottles - Well worth it if you are doing carry on only, or if you like to bring more than one scent with you. Depending on how much you use I find that a bottle filled up lasts about 1.5-2 weeks if you are using 2-3 sprays a day.

  • World power adapter - Awesome adapter. A lot nicer than the 50 mini adapters you have to piece together like legos.

  • Power strip - I never used this. I wouldn't get it unless you knew you needed it. They are good ways to make friends at airports though, as plugs are always in high demand and few people will say no to letting you free up a plug or two.

  • Battery pack - (updated version) OR While there are cheaper and smaller ones, this is the perfect size and capacity if you are bringing a couple or more devices. This will charge a phone many times over. It's especially handy if you want to leave it charging in the hotel then bring it with you during the day after it's charged.

  • Compressed charcoal deodorizers - Great to throw in shoes or bags that start to get smelly. Useful in hostels.

  • Microfiber towel - Very useful for hostels as most will charge you to use towels

  • Tripod - paired with a phone mount ( this can be used to hold the phone on long flights. Really nice for watching movies on the plane or waiting for a train.

  • Roll up 1L water bottles - Great for airplanes (no longer need to buy water after TSA).

  • I packed all of my clothes into cubes and a flat packer.



    Since I was traveling alone, and in hostels, security was a slightly bigger deal for me. I carried my passport on my person or locked in my hostel (many had lockers or metal lock boxes).

    At all times I had a photo copy of my passport and everything in my wallet, some local currency, and a print out of all the embassies in the area. (Attached to this email.) I printed this double sided and had multiple copies with me.
    I told my mom, "At any time I want to be able to have everything stolen, but still have a way back home.” My credit card will do cash transfers internationally and also includes a continuous travel insurance package.

    I would highly suggest making three copies of your passport and all credit cards and other ID you are taking. One lives on your person when your passport is stored elsewhere (hotel, for example), one lives in your luggage (preferably hidden/tucked away), and one stays with a trusted friend or family member that will be in the States for the duration of your trip. If anything happens they will be able to assist with proving your identity to the State Department, thus speeding the process along. I suggest keeping some cash tucked in your passport (along with that embassy list), your copy of the passport in the luggage, and then the copy of the passport and embassy list in your wallet. At this point you have three possibilities of things to grab to prove your identity/pay for a cab/tell you where to go.

    While this may seem a little overboard, I find it doesn't take that long to set up and helps greatly should anything bad happen. Also consider registering with the State Department. This helps them track Americans abroad should anything happen, and also gives you alerts, should anything happen.


    Tech Tips

    I also used a service called Line2 to give me a US phone number to call from and receive calls to while I was away. I have T-Mobile that gives me included unlimited international data. As long as I had a 4g signal, I also had a phone I could make and receive calls on. Google Voice and Skype would also do this. Do be aware of how much international data costs. Wifi is easy to find, but I suggest using a VPN on your phone or laptop for any web surfing. And even with the VPN I would not suggest logging into any financial (bank, etc) while abroad unless you are on a trusted wifi network (aka, friends).

    For maps you can download parts of Google Maps by searching the city and clicking “Download." This should work on Android and iOS versions of Google Maps.

u/Kalahan7 · 6 pointsr/onebag

I came back from Vietnam 2 days ago for a month long trip. The first time one bagging.

I used the €35 "Amazon Basics" backpack because I'm cheap.

Let me tell you, the thing held up fantastic. I was really happy with the bag in general.

  • Build quality was great. Hold up perfectly. No wear and tear
  • Overall base weight was pretty high at 1,7 Kg but I never had airlines actually weighing carry on bags.
  • The thing has measurements that fit every carry on requirements I could find. But again, never had an airline measure my check in bag before.
  • Expandable. If you want some extra space (outside of what airlines typically allow) you can expand the bag to increase in size.
  • Feature rich: Folds open like a suitcase, laptop sleeve, Lockable zipper on main compartment, compression straps, removable shoulder and hip strap, backpack straps can be tucked away, 2 strong handles. inner mesh pocket, trolley sleeve, "middle front" pocket with some basic organisation, front pocket for easy access to flight documents
  • Generally comfortable to carry. Straps were padded enough and has some basic back ventilation
  • Light gray internal fabric which makes it visually easier to find things in your bag.
  • No water bottle pockets on the side, something I did miss.

    For €35 this thing was pretty freaking solid. I'm sure that there are better bags out there but usually they are triple the price. I honestly wouldn't know what they could do better than this one other than lighter base weight, better back ventilation, and side pockets. To me those things aren't worth the extra cost.

    I was skeptical for this bag but I'm glad I brought it with me.
u/scheides · 1 pointr/onebag has some good options. It's geared a bit more towards backpacking but some of the items work great for travel regardless.


I use their zipza pouches, size medium and large for toiletries based on how long of trip I'll be on:

They weigh *less than half an ounce* and have a nice zipper closure. The grey one is nice because you can just make out what you're searching for inside.

Speaking of inside the pouch, I use the small 'snack size' ziploc baggies for things like pills, cotton rounds, qtips, etc. Also weigh nothing and easy to see whats inside.

They also have a nice selection of bottles for liquids:


The 0.5 oz dropper bottles work good for face wash, hand sanitizer, etc and the size is good for weekend trips. The mini jars are good for hair product and the like, and the 'tottles' are decent for shampoo/conditioner/lotion but my personal favorite right now are these 1oz containers on amazon for week-10-day trips.


They also have these little thumb toothbrushes:

but I think I prefer the one from zpacks (again, I keep it in a snack-sized ziploc baggie). The tiny tiny toothpaste tube they include is just enough for a weekend trip otherwise a half-used travel-size tube goes in.


No affiliation with any of these links/companies, just me trying to stay light.

u/loddist · 1 pointr/onebag

It depends on how much you want to pay for durability and certain features really. I'm happy that I paid a quite a lot extra to get a Tom Bihn Western Flyer, but I'm also using it as a daily briefcase for work and expect to use it for another 10 years.

If you want light pack + 35L space + urban-ish look, maybe look at the Arcido Faroe (880g), or the Lowe Alpine AT Lightflite Carry-on 40 (760g), or the Cabinzero 36L (700g).

There are a few more on this onebag wiki with weight:

In the end though, it's up to you to balance these 6 aspects:

  1. Volume
  2. Features
  3. Durability
  4. Weight
  5. Price
  6. Looks

    I happily paid a bit more and took a bit more weight (1.2kg) for more durability, looks and features. If you can bring yourself down to 25L though, then the Synapse 25 by Tom Bihn is practically perfect for you in terms of features/durability/weight. Price is 200 USD i believe, which is cheap for a bag that will last 20 years easy.

    If you're on a bit of budget or need some more space, the Arcido Faroe looks good at 35L, but you'll have to read some reviews on it since I've only seen pictures. On further budget is the Solo Max Everyday Hybrid which I would totally buy if I was in the US (UK here). So good and cheap at 50 USD with 35L volume.

    I'm not a fan of osprey as (like you) I think they look more like hiking packs with a turtley back instead of looking slim and urban. But that's personal opinion. They have a lot of reviews on their comfort and durability.
u/bookmonkey786 · 4 pointsr/onebag

I'll let you in on a secret, you can get away with a perfectly affordable backpacks under $100 that will meet most of your needs. Above that it is specific features and looks. People can and have travel for months across Europe with just a Jansport backpack. But a nicer more expensive bag is totally worth it for the features it offers, but you should really KNOW what you want. Some features are must have for some people and totally useless deal breakers for others. I didnt know what bag was perfect for me until I had traveled a while and and tested a few bags.

The low end is Amazon basics gets the job done for cheap if you want to test thing out this will work fine, lacks good padded hip belt so if you're sensitive weight its not as good.

[Osprey Farpoint],( mid tier bag, can be found for less than $100 occasionally. One of the most common backpacking bag around, hood basic travel backpack with great quality and track record.

Chase Reeves does a good comparison of various higher end travel bags if you see something you like you can look for more reviews of it, most will be inside your budget.

u/Eazy_DuzIt · 5 pointsr/onebag

If you're ok with more of a trimmer instead of a razor:
I brought this $10 Wahl travel trimmer on my last trip, 7 weeks, and it was awesome. Could easily take on a full beard if I didn't hurry it. Runs off 1 AA and comes with a 1 and 2 guard. The open guard trims pretty close but it won't give a close shave like a razor will. Best of all it's TINY. Like half the size of the palm of my hand.

u/cba85 · 2 pointsr/onebag

I personally use the Wahl Travel Trimmer when I travel. It’s compact, cordless and uses only an AA battery.

The Xiaomi electric razer can be a good choice for shaving during a trip. I don’t use it personally but Xiaomi usually makes good quality product for a very good price.

I hope it will help you to choose a lightweight electric razor :)

u/ExternalUserError · 1 pointr/onebag

> Dell make a laptop charger with built in battery bank and 2 usb out, power companion I think, but would it work with your laptop?

My wife actually has one of those, but unfortunately, it isn't high enough wattage. :/

> Kindle, Chromecast, headphones (depending on type) dont need a lot of charge or even to be charged very often so charge from laptop as and when your doing your work.

All true! In fact, the Thinkpad even does higher-voltage fast charging on one of its USB A ports, plus its second USB C port is capable of (as I recall) 15W PD, so I can rapidly charge my phone off its second USB C port.

That's definitely a great solution for the hotel room, although it does mean that my laptop needs to be on my night stand. But for day trips, I was hoping to just bring the "one charger" for phones as well.

I actually ended up going with the Nektech because it's USB-IF certified, has 3 USB A ports, and a USB C port with a power profile I believe will be enough for my laptop.

u/FuckedUpFingernails · 1 pointr/onebag

Completely forgot about the sim, thanks so much. Looking into Express VPN, seems nice. Yeah good point about a nice outfit, studying at university and there is a graduation at some point I think. I think I'm going to order one of these. Whoops! Forgot the sunglasses. I'll throw some in. Thanks so much for the help! How long did you go for?

u/koottravel · 2 pointsr/onebag

I tried a few different ones include some mentioned here, but ultimately settled on Surpent USB Beard Trimmer. I shave the sides and back of my head completely (man bun on top like a weirdo) and it works great. The adjustable blade is such a nice design and the usb charge means no extra cables.

I'm going 1.5 years strong on this thing.

u/arhythm · 3 pointsr/onebag

For those who are interested in this bag, it's currently $55 on Amazon right now. Solo Everyday Max Backpack (ACV732-4)

I bought one myself and am undecided on keeping it as a first bag or getting an osprey Porter 30. I like the large pocket but would like some built in organization in a secondary pocket for small items like any camera, chargers, etc. There's the 2 side pockets that could maybe fit a water bottle if the bag isn't packed full and a pocket on front that could hold a wallet or phone, my Nexus 6P barely fit.

The shoe compartment on the bottom also takes a ton of room in the main section of the bag. Though I'd guess that's the same for any bag that has that.

For the size of it I also expected more space. There are some interior pockets in the main section but again, with clothes in the main section you won't be able to fit much.

u/lordhamster1977 · 3 pointsr/onebag

There are like a million versions of that same basic adapter. You can probably score one off ebay for less than $3.

That said, if you want something super packable and light that works worldwide check out:
this badboy is awesome and super thin.

u/NeverGivenOnlyEarned · 3 pointsr/onebag

Just got my Card Travel Adapter 4-Pro in the mail last night. (

Saw it recommended frequently on this sub.

Construction seems great, USB-C port is an awesome addition.

Can't testify to its converting ability yet since I'm still on USA sockets. One Amazon review mentioned an issue with 220v.


u/KlfJoat · 4 pointsr/onebag

I see what you're bringing in other replies. And I don't have recommendations for those things.

But what I don't see is anything about your work tools. I would imagine that robot installation and servicing would require a hardware toolkit, an electronics toolkit, and a computing toolkit.

My job is highly technical and requires a number of computing devices that have to be charged at all times. So what I use and recommend there is as follows:

u/ScrewTheAverage · 3 pointsr/onebag

We're not sure which one (if any) is a 'white label' of the other (they look very similar) but as an alternative we've been very happy with the Kikkerland UL03-A. It's also affordable at about $10 (and currently less than the one above).

We're r/Onebag travelers so volume (4 1/8 L x 1 6/8 W x 5/8 D inches, per our measurements) and weight (1.6 ounces, per product page) are very important to us.

We've plugged/unplugged it over ~75 times over the last year and it's as good as new.

u/juaquin · 2 pointsr/onebag

I picked up this Eagle Creek packable daypack:

It's pretty similar to other day packs (very small folded down, lightweight), but has a clean look, and I think the black heather colored fabric looks more normal than the shiny stuff normally used. A daypack was a necessity for work because I need my laptop and carrying around my large onebag would look silly - my 13" in a sleeve fits perfectly in this one.

u/TheUseOfWords · 13 pointsr/onebag

This Anker Powercore 20100 will charge an iPad mini 4 times, and Anker is very trustworthy, good quality, and good value in my experience.

u/littlebloofox · 2 pointsr/onebag


In an old comment of yours also replying to a laundry sink bag, you mentioned the things you'd change for the future. In that, these two items were listed:

Sea To Summit Lite Line Clothesline

Paracord Planet Mil-Spec Commercial Grade 550lb Type III Nylon Paracord 25 feet Turquoise

My question is what's the paracord for? At first I thought it was to switch out your old clothes line method, but then I saw the sea to Summit one. Also how is the Dr. Bronner soap treating you? Is it a nice peppermint smell? Does it clean your clothes well?

u/blahblahrasputan · 3 pointsr/onebag


Anker PowerCore 20100mAh because they are so so cheap and reliable!


Anker PowerCore+ 20100mAh if you have an item that needs more amperage. USB-C phones or Nintendo Switch, something that wants a little more oomf. Not that more exp.

We own two of each for our camper. We live on these things for a long trips. They're also under regulation size for all flights. Both not too bad for (mens) jeans or a jacket pocket for their capacity, kinda bulky but you aren't going to get slimmer for that size. Definitely comfortable to throw in your backpack for a hike. Durable so far (2 years of many many camping trips and flights home)

u/brp · 3 pointsr/onebag

Congrats man!!!

Couple of comments from my experience of years of traveling.

  1. Ditch the shaving cream and just use conditioner instead. I grab a bottle from a hotel and use that until it's empty. Takes up a lot less space and works well.
  2. The small degree deoderant doesn't really last, at least for me. It's fine for an overnight or emergency, won't cut it for weeks of travel. Best just get a larger size stick.
  3. Think about using small 1oz bottles for other toiletries. I used to travel with the same face wash and those bottles take up too much room and the sharp edges always rip the Ziploc bag. I use these tubes for a bunch of my liquids and they work great. For the face wash I refill it with some squirts from my larger bottle at home.
  4. I see a sharpie but no pen. Recommend you have some pens as well.
u/sovelong1 · 1 pointr/onebag

Anybody used the card-TEC? Currently have this - + a zolt: I'm really just looking to slim down so I don't necessarily need the usb-c, could just get the adapter with one or two usb ports. My current universal adapter doesn't way much but the form factor is a little bulky to me. Wondering if it's worth spending extra on one of these but I'm not seeing many reviews....

Mogics thing looks cool but says it weights 16oz? That's pretty heavy.

u/gemorris · 13 pointsr/onebag

I get adapters for my cords so I can carry fewer: I have just a short and long USB-C cord but then alternate tips I can put on it to change into micro USB, lightning, and plug into a regular USB slot if need be.

I also carry a tiny flashlight on a keychain hanging off my pack - it's surprising how often this comes in handy.

The Kikkerland Universal Travel Adapter is AMAZING, works everywhere and is a third of the size of most travel adapters:

u/CosmosBE · 1 pointr/onebag

If I were you I would get this backpack that can hold a lot, has 2 water bottle and some kind of laptop sleeve. It is surprisingly very good for that price.

AND I would wait for the GR2 to be back in stock, since it is the one that best fits your needs!

u/plaid-knight · 2 pointsr/onebag

I just picked up a Suprent beard trimmer. It charges with micro USB and is pretty light. I don’t need a clean shave, so I’m gonna use its edger to shave my neck. I tried that for the first time today and it works fine. Results in something that looks like a day’s growth. Haven’t tested it as a trimmer yet.

u/VaughnTomTucker · 7 pointsr/onebag

When I'm not around a washing machine, I hand wash yesterday's socks, underwear, and t-shirt arm pits. I find my stuff needs a washing machine after 3-4 hand washings.

If I'm feeling lazy, and there's no consequences to taking a longer shower, I'll shower with my underwear/socks on, then at the end take them off and give them a final scrub. Doesn't work as well...but did I mention lazy?

I carry this clothesline, this sink stopper, and most importantly, Dr. Bronners soap! It does a good job of deodorizing, and I only have to put in a few drops in each "load" of hand laundry.

u/xwm69x · 2 pointsr/onebag

I bought this one off Amazon Smile for $20. Seemed like a good combo of price, weight, and size, but I can’t yet attest to the quality since it just came in. I think waffle linen is supposed to be more comfortable if you’re willing to spend a little more

u/ohdeargodnotthisguy · 1 pointr/onebag

Someone in another post commented recommending the Suprent beard trimmer and I love it for one-bagging because it has one attachment that's adjustable and it's micro-USB rechargeable.

The plan is to do laundry weekly. I also got a killer clothes line that takes up little room and weighs nothing. here

The scrubs is more just Incase. I don’t wanna trust a service to not stick our wool in a dryer and sometimes it’s not easy to fill a sink. We bought this cleaner called “Soak.” The reviews are really good. I’ll have to update. At this point I don’t plan on doing laundry daily. I like to take one day out of the week and relax, cook some good food, and catch up on some Stranger Things.

u/thedonwhoknocks · 3 pointsr/onebag

I use the AmazonBasics Adventure Backpack as my EDC (business casual workplace) and onebag. My last 7 day trip I packed 3 days of clothes, a rain jacket, a 15-inch MBP, size 10 running shoes, some random electronics, toiletries, my wife's hair dryer, and bluetooth over-the-ear headphones. The bag still fit under the seats on our flights (within US). My bag also has the TSA "lay flat" laptop compartment to speed through security. But Amazon has since changed the zipper design to remove that feature.

You can find them cheaper, but this is what I use. It makes a world of difference! ... another trick to use with or on it's own is the "ranger roll" technique... YouTube has loads of videos on how to perform. Just another way to keep it clean and easy to pack... while not wrinkling your clothing.

A backpack that has excellent organization and is very reasonably priced. Below that is a podcast episode of a girl that went to Costa Rica and how she took a school backpack that only weighed 10 lbs, and finally a blog from Tortuga Backpacks of a couple that took everything in one bag. Enjoy.

u/Hakote · 1 pointr/onebag

I like them because they're ultra-lightweight, durable, and translucent enough to get an idea of what's inside. They're made.of a siliconized nylon that "slides" very well, so you can actual stuff a decent amount in a small space and be able to drag what you need out easily.

My usual cold-weather packing list uses the compression cubes (linked) and the smaller 2-sided Clean/Dirty cube. The larger of the two compression cubes easily holds a pair of pants, a sweater, and two or three t-shirts. The smaller compression cube holds a down jacket and gloves. The Clean/Dirty cube holds my socks, underwear, and whatever I sleep in.

u/StonerMeditation · 3 pointsr/onebag

I quit using shampoo, and even Dr. Bonners. Almost every country sells little packages of detergent, usually formulated for that area. I bring one of those Tupperware type containers (my sandwich on the jet), and keep the detergent in the plastic container for the duration of my trip.

Real detergent does a great job. Bring a flat rubber sink stopper to give yourself a little puddle of water to work with. Rinse with the shower, squeezing, rinsing, squeezing, etc until it looks clean.

Hang the clothes in the shower until there is no more dripping, and then hang them on the line of cord you brought. If you can leave the windows open, or dry outside, all the better...

I generally take nylon, lightweight wool, and other quick-drying clothing - so I can wash at night, and they will be dry in the morning. If something is not completely dry, it's usually ok because it will be dry after an hour wearing it.

u/DaddyKoolAid · 5 pointsr/onebag

Yeah - I take a bladeless multitool and they find it at security more than 50% of the time, and often take some convincing to let me though with it. (It was confiscated once, too.)

A knife seems like a bad idea, as there's a good chance they'll find it, and at best they'll just take it.

Another USB-C charger option is this.. I think it's more compact, yet still chucks out 45w over USB-C.

Edit: Just noticed that they said:

>Im always checking my crap in, unless its a 5 day trip or less, and the majority of my trips are over a month

which means the knife probably mainly goes in checked luggage.

u/movesthetasty · 7 pointsr/onebag

I like to use this travel adaptor. It's well built, packed with features, and small, light and minimal.

  • Can plug into any wall socket
  • Has 1 USB-C and 3 USB-A ports
  • You can also plug in another device into it
  • Works across a varities of voltages and amps

    Basically it powers my laptop, powers my phone(s), power bank and anything else. I have to credit /u/heronebag for the recommendation. off her blog.

All Purpose Gillette Styler (under $20 on amazon) -- For me, it easily replaced all other razors, shavers, and trimmers I had previously used. Gets a close trim, weighs practically nothing, is smaller than a hot dog, and takes a single replaceable AA battery, which can last me about 4-6 months of weekly use. I've had mine since 2016 and it continues to serve me well.

They exist. There is even an AmazonBasics one. I think people who travel a lot (enough to care about one bag travel) don't have a problem with spending a few hundred on the right bag.

But for those who are just getting into this and are not sure using what they have or even buying a "cheap" bag makes sense.

Bag I mentioned:

would [this] ( be about the same thing? Amazon doesn't list the GSM. I like this style more than the other.

Actually this one.

It may not really look it, but it's got a bit of a clamshell opening. You can definitely lay it flat and open it up at the bottom to get something out there without opening the top, etc. I had the backpack for a week, came across the Air and some money, and got the Air instead.

The CARD Travel Adapter has 1 USB-C, 3 USB-A, and adapters built in. Been using it constantly since September and can vouch it's well worth the money.

This Wahl cordless beard trimmer costs $11.25, weighs 4 ounces and takes a single AA battery. I use it to keep my beard trim, but some Amazon reviewers report giving themselves buzz cuts with it.

If the same cable that charges your laptop won't charge a microusb device with the adapter, it's probably a bad adapter. I've used the AmazonBasics c to micro cable without issue from by a type c charger and a MacBook pro. Does charging your phone via the type c/lightning cable work?

Personally, I went the route of a multiport charger. I use this one. It's a little sketchy on delivering the full 60w via type c, but works great otherwise. Unfortunately, I haven't found a 60w option from a (relatively) reputable company. Closest I've seen is 45w or 30w.

This is probably similar to another comment, but I've had this for a few years on multiple trips to various countries and have never had a problem

Amazon Basics makes a carry on travel knapsack that looks reasonable.

I got the one from Amazon Basics (

Did not want to invest a lot upfront because its my first attempt....

I have two of these:

I like how quickly they dry every morning after being used. They seem absorbent, with a nice roughness, and no weird smells. Shrinkage isn’t bad, and they end up big enough to do the job even after going through the dryer.

Edit: they have a nifty little loop on one edge so you can hang them from a hook.

I carry this $11 pocket sized wahl trimmer when I'm traveling for more than a few days. Uses a single AA battery, available anywhere.

u/kingkake · 2 pointsr/onebag

I have one and the one time I tried to use it in Malaysia it didn't really work so great.

This is about as tiny as you can get: Kikkerland UL03-A Universal Travel Adapter

I'd recommend the card 4 pro: link. I've been using for 2 months now and really like it, but as someone else mentioned, the Mu One would probably work as well.


- 1x 45 W USB-c charging port

- 3x 15 W regular USB for other gear.

- 1x generic AC wall plug

- Reasonably compact and plugs into most outlets.


- Expensive

- Back cover is a little annoying.

- Plugs into wall from flat side, which covers adjacent outlets at times.

I carry this along with a couple of USB-c and USB cables and it covers all of my charging needs for macbook pro, ipad, phone, airpods. No bulky adapters needed.

My anker power brick is charged with a micro USB port, so it doesn’t really matter which charger you use. The wall charger I have is this one.

Two ports are enough for me and I mostly travel in Europe. If needs be, I’ll just add an adapter to my pack.

I brought this guy on my trip (also suggested by /u/earlearlearl): It's very compact and takes a single AA battery.

I haven't shaved with a razor in years. Beard grows too fast and I have sensitive skin. I'm 5 weeks into a 10 week trip and I tell you I really miss my electric shaver at home. If I could bring one luxury item next time, I'd bring replace it with the shaver I brought in a heartbeat (

Hi Canadian! Are you hoping to buy any/all of these from MEC? I exclusively buy my backpacks from MEC regardless as to what they are because of their incredible return policy.

>We guarantee the quality of our products. If the quality of an item hasn’t met your expectations, you can bring it back. We also guarantee the product selection advice we give. If something you purchased based on this advice turns out to be unsuitable, you can bring it back for an exchange, refund, repair, or credit.

They really stand by the whole "product selection advice" thing. I have friends who work there, and I myself have returned backpacks years after I've purchased it because a zipper has broken, or a strap has broken and it has been replaced, no questions asked. I've returned hiking boots that DID. NOT. WORK. Replaced, no questions asked. Whatever you choose, get the advice from MEC, buy it from MEC, because if it doesn't work out, you can switch it for something different, because it did not work for you. They resell refurbished products with the same guarantee or donate them, so their returns do not go to waste.

I myself was looking at the Vapour Overnight pack. The reason I didn't get it was because I:

  • I worry I would be frustrated by how the inside is treated. Other items in the Vapour line mention that the interior has a "stickyness" to it. I can see a lot of sighs in my future with that bag.

  • didn't like that it didn't have chest or waist straps. Personally, I need them, or at least one of either. I'm 5'8" with crooked shoulders and a back problem.

  • I made and did not return a bad purchase on a recommendation from someone who does not have the same travel needs as me, and I'm feeling incredibly guilty about that purchase to buy something else before I sell it.

    The reason I still want to get it is:

  • I would rather get it, find out I hate it and exchange it for something better than to learn it could have been everything I wanted.

  • it looks so very waterproof and that makes me so very happy.

  • I like the compartments a lot. A lot a lot.

  • The price is very right.

  • It's so lightweight.
