1. A well-fitting backpack. The Gregory Sage 55 L works great for me in a size XS! Pete went with a Gregory Reality 62L, looks old school, but dope.
2. Packing cubes (allowed me to strategically organize and cram all my belongings into my pack with room to spare).
3. Nexus 7 with a keyboard case.
4. Panasonic Lumix GF1. We purchased this camera off of ebay (obviously) with a 14-45mm lens. It’s a combination of a DSLR and point and shoot.
5. Eddie Bauer Rippac Daypack for day trips and hikes. 18L on your back converts into the size of orange.

All in all, my backpack is pretty heavy and I would like to try and ditch a few things in England…. Unfortunately, my toiletries (although a must) are obnoxiously heavy. Besides that I’m not sure what else I can do without! Maybe my jeans?
