The Ultimate Female Packing List for All Climates

As with most things in your life, if you don’t love it, you need to leave it. You are paying a lot of money to travel and putting in a lot of effort to hauling this stuff around for weeks on end! Only bring what you love, and only bring what you can layer.

Packable Insulated Jacket – Think light puffy coat. An insulated mid layer that is either down or down alternative. This will be worn under your rainshell but may be worn on top of a hoodie jacket.


Extra-warm Hoodie – For those traditionalists, a regular hoodie will do but if you can find one that has a knit fabric or a little more heavy-duty outdoor specialty hoodie, you will often find they take up less room in your suitcase and pack up very small.

Tops are usually the focal point of outfits and should be items that you like and would be comfortable being photographed in, since they’ll make the most appearances in your travel pics


Hiking Pants – Bring one comfortable pair of hiking/outdoor pants that you can use for rougher activities. It can even just be a pair of pants you love that are super comfortable but that are made with a heavy duty fabric.


Jeans – No matter where you are going in the world, jeans are always in fashion. I brought my favorite pair and I suggest you do too. Bring the ones you would live in if you could.

Shoes are always the biggest conundrum! Luckily, if you have a few versatile and comfy pairs, you will be set for the entire trip!
