The Vagabonding Packing List

The Vagabonding Packing List /// VinjatekThis is the entire gear + apparel + kit packing list for my vagabonding lifestyle; nomadism, survivalism and adventurism.

*VOLUME: 34 Liters     |     COST: $7200

One does not need a home full of things to live. Just like ancient times, all we need is what we can carry on our backs. I’ve been living and traveling the world this way and have never been more comfortable or complete.

      John – what an awesome and impressive list! From the comments, I can see I’m not the only reader who was eagerly anticipatIng getting to check out your packing list as a whole!

      One question – in the photo for “The Tech” — what is the item pictured on the very bottom row, under the Vivosmart Watch, and to the left of the Flea Flashlight?

      Thanks for the Packing List… And for the continual inspiration you provide!

      Cool!

      But where are the gloves?

      Any thoughts on ‘sappers’ – those figure 8 shaped leadfilled leather pouches?
