The Ultimate Female Packing List: One Year Later

After more than 365 days here we are again. This is the ultimate female packing list, one year later.

This female packing list is the result of an intense year of traveling around Europe, Canada, and Latin America. One year spent packing and unpacking every couple of days/weeks.

During this long period of time we learned a lot and about what is truly necessary while traveling and what we didn’t need. We shipped back to Italy some useless stuff and we left some other along the way.

In February 2018 we posted a similar article, today we are updating it.

Generally speaking, it is always better to travel light. It is important to have more freedom and flexibility, but also we don’t want to make laundry every single day or smell like a stinky dog πŸ™‚
This ultimate female packing list helps to choose your stuff thoughtfully, without renouncing to aesthetic.



The backpack will be your house for the next year and so, it is important to choose it thoughtfully and carefully.
Eagle Creek produces one of the most comfortable and well design backpacks in the market.

The Global Companion 65L for women with its book-style opening is the perfect companion for each travel lady out there.

This backpack is designed keeping in mind the woman’s body with a narrow shoulder strap and tilted hip belt for comfort. What makes the difference is that the backpack has multiple handles and can be grabbed from all the sides. But our favorite feature is the extra protection bag, that’s not merely a cover, but a waterproof bag that contains the entire backpack. It perfect for the rain and protects the bag from possible damage and dirt while on a plane or a bus.

In addition to the backpack, we strongly recommend purchasing organizers sets. These, from the same brand, are very robust and nice.
