Our gear for the trip is made from extensive research of other RTW/Travel blogs, hoping to use their reviews of equipment to create the ultimate packing list. We will have our own reviews on what worked and what didn’t periodically throughout the trip.

Travel Packs

After realizing that about 95% of the time we will be on terrain that we can roll a bag, we decided on the Osprey Sojourn 25″ and the Osprey Meridian 28″. The packs have a lifetime warranty and the option of a traditional backpack or a rolling suitcase. We have also been able to take them as carry-ons on a few flights in the U.S. so hopefully that will still be an option with the International Airlines as well.
