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

SPV /// ARCUS CARABINER
SPV /// VSSL SURVIVAL KIT
SPN /// HOW TO BE INVISIBLE

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.

    I see your alternating from the Fast Pack Edc to the Litespeed, other than the size difference, what do you prefer?

  2. Specialist Zero

    Had to look up that Elvish honey, holy crap, have you tasted it or are you going to sell it in a few years for a million bucks?

  3. Robert SythRZythRZ

    Holy shit, only 34 liters??? My backpack is 60 liters and packed to explode. But you’ve given me some insight on reducing this.

  4. Cameron Burgess

    Enormously grateful that you took the time to put this together. Quite a few of the links aren’t working, however, so you might want to double check them :-)

  5. Johnny

    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!

  6. TC

    Impressive list! Can you share with us which are the essential stuffs that you will keep on you at all times, compared to those in your bag.

    By the way, what earphone are you carrying in your earphone case?
