Ultimate Backpack List

When traveling India or world, backpacking is the most important. You backpacking will be your best friend. In fact, backpacking can make your travel easy, but it could end in worst enemy if you’ve chosen it in a wrong.

I’ve been traveling destinations for almost 4 years and in my opinion, it totally depends on the type of backpack you use. Ironically I’ve used many of them and I’ve spent a lot of time in finding the best one. Therefore, in this blog I’m sharing my best backpack which I’ve used and I recommend to you too as well.

These are my favorite:

Travel Backpack:

Quechua Trekking Backpack

Actually this bag looks big, but not really too big to handle. It suits best for a week trip. You can keep 25 kg – 30 kg easily. There are lots of zippers and separate compartment for shoes. In addition there is straps for waist and chest, plus fold-able section for cloths. 
Da Tashe 50L Rucksack

It is quite cheaper then Quecha trekking backpack. It is 1 kg light bag which can handle It saves from tearing and can be placed over shoulder hence distributing weight of the bag. I’ve used it for a while. It is easy to carry. Also, it has rain cover also which is pretty cool.

Rolling Bags:

It is fairly large and have a lot of space. You can put a lot of stuff inside it. With this you need no other bag to carry. It is tough and can handle a lot of pressure.

In case, if I do a family trip or go for a 10-14 days trip like I’ve done in Kerala, I choose this bag. Because of its size and large volume handle ability, I like it very much. It suits me best to fit packing cubes in it and arrange every item so perfectly.

Best Travel Clothing List

Yes, it is true you can wear anything you want when you travel, depending on the climate and destination you are traveling. Still there is some clothing which is more flexible and adoptable than regular one. If you are traveling to different climates, it is quite difficult to carry all cloth. Hence, cloths should be such that can wear more than once.

In fact clothes should not smell after being worn on a hot day and also suits in cold and wet environment conditions. Below is the list of type of clothing which I’d love to recommend.

Weatherproof jackets

Romano Men’s snow and water resistance jacket

I had one and it is really an attractive one. It is also comfortable and has large pockets and keeps body away from cold. Suits best for Uttrakhand. Found in all sizes.
Windproof Hike Hooded Jacket

Light weighted, attractive and windproof jacket. It suits best for hiking, climbing, sporting and camping. For more info click on photograph.

These gloves protects your from snow during hiking and trekking mountains. I had bought a pair of these gloves last year and is really working great.

It is Quite costlier cargo pant but has multiple benefits. Most-noteworthy is that is has great moisture control, easy drying ability and smell proof.


Other than the track pants and trousers I usually carry a pair of regular jeans which are quite flexible and relaxed.

Travel socks

Ironically, I still cannot say about socks, which to use or not. I have tried many and the best one is listed below.

Nike Ankel Socks

I like these socks the most. First of all these are comfortable and can be wear at any place. Still you have to take care of smell.

I have a regular pair of these socks and I usually wear at my work place and also during travel. These perfectly fits our legs and not so much tight.

These swim shorts are comfortable and ideal for wearing on beaches. You can surf with them and swim with them. Furthermore, these shorts get dried quickly. That’s why I really recommend these shorts.

Formal Flip Flop

I have these for about 3 years and really worked well even at formal meetings. you’ll remain in fashion during those meetings.


Therefore, these are few of the best travel clothing and backpacking that I’d recommend.

There are many other items like towels, scarfs, formal shirts (for meeting/party), other luggage backpacks (like the long one), snikkers and Sleeping eye cover etc..

No doubt these are the few accessories that serves Indian travelers the most. Among these, I’m using almost 75% of the items whereas other items are recommended by my traveler friends. Thanks for it! This is the ultimate backpack list.
