This is the gear I'm going to take -

Fleece

4 sets of underwear & socks

Rain coat

Baseball cap



WASHBAG

Hair wax

Deodorant

Aftershave

Razor

Vitamins

Hand sanitizer

Malaria pills & mosquito repellent

OTHER STUFF

Maybe to big? Or cheap?



Or if anyone has anything to say about my gear list, that would be cool too.



Thanks, Dean.

Hi Dean,



As to backpack I would suggest Deuter. They're not cheap but quality is superior. I have one big Deuter and now I'm going to buy another one (smaller). An RTW is a challenge and you should have a reliable bag. The company manufactures really top-notch stuff and you shouldn't be disappointed - I've never been. The only drawback is the price. I've also bought Deuter sleeping bag (only 0.5 kg) and other things.

Don't forget a mosquito net - may come in handy.



Best,

Adam

Interesting idea - the attachable daypack. And the price isn't very high for Deuter.

Seems like a pretty nice bagpack but if you bought a travel insurance what I really hope) you might want to take the policy with you just in case. Since I got my camera and some other stuff stolen, I always try to get an insurance if I travel. Good Luck with your trip.
