Backpacking/Travel Kit List

Backpacking/Gap Year Travel Kit List

Outdoor Adventure Kit ChecklistBackpacking holidays and worldwide travel during a gap year have become increasingly popular amongst young adults in recent years. It is a great way to see a bit of the world while you are still young and with no dependants or commitments.

It is also becoming increasingly popular with older people who want a break from their career and from the rat race of modern life.

Not only is it a much cheaper way of travelling, but you will also get to see a lot more of the countries you visit, and the customs and way of life of the local people, than you would on a normal holiday.

Planning & Preparation

It is certainly a very exciting way to travel, but can be very daunting. Planning your trip carefully is essential, and a kit list will help you ensure that you take everything you need.

Here at Chas E. Smith, we have compiled a list of what we think you may need to take, and we hope you will find this useful.

This kit list is for guidance only - please check with your travel operator for a definitive list.
