What do I pack for my trip?

After running this site for 8+ years, and dozens of trips myself, I can say in 99% of cases the answer is a resounding:  less than you think. Whether you’ve come to this conclusion yet or not, Her Packing List will probably lead you down that road eventually. Our content is peppered with reminders and inspiration for traveling with less.

How you pack for a trip depends on the destination, the time of year, your activity level and so on. We’ve spent a lot of time acquiring the ultimate packing lists for popular (and not so popular) destinations and activities across the globe. See the master list right here.
