Not OP, but I've done a lot of 3-4 week backpacking trips and used this with good results. (Although I paid $35 for it so I'd search around for a better deal than what's on Amazon right now). It's easier than washing in the sink and I feel like my clothes get cleaner.

edit: These are a perfect amount of detergent for it too

edit2: Learn from my mistake though...if you buy anything colored brand new for your trip, wash it BEFORE you go...because once you stain like all of your clothes, it's really hard to revive them in any way whatsoever without a washing machine. Dyed a load of clothes blue on one trip...didn't learn my lesson, dyed them all pink on another trip lol. But yea, this thing is awesome.

Throw clothing, soap, and water in a roll top dry bag, get the air out, and agitate. Maybe add a big rock. I haven't used this method personally because I have a thinner verson that's made specifically for washing called the scrubba but I didn't want to advertise it because I think it's overpriced for what it is and the valve on mine stopped working.

If you've got a portable washing machine it becomes even easier, especially in the summer, when it's easy to air-dry clothes.

Call ahead to introduce yourself and ask permission to attend and any requirements. That is my approach.

For laundry, consider buying

I was looking at getting this. Its called Scrubba. Its a laundry bag. Pretty simple, some manual work, but I think it will use less water than a machine or a bucket and less splashing everywhere. Its like a dry bag, but with little nipples. I will be off grid, so any water saved is what I will be after.

> washing in the shower

I've done this...with usually poor results. Most places I've stayed the water pressure hasn't been good enough to wash out the soap in the clothes (I've tried those travel laundry soap my experience, they don't work well. I've also just used shampoo and regular soap, also with bad results). If you are somewhere humid it then can take a long time to dry (I carry a travel clothes line.)

The sink method is hard as not a lot of sinks I've found actually plug, so you'll need to bring a stopper or plug with you. If you can plug it, and have the time to really squish and clean, then it can be a better method. It still can be hard to completely get the clean.

Others may try something like this. I haven't tried it, but bloggers I follow like these types of systems.

> I don't want to pay upwards of $10 weekly to wash my clothes in laundry machines

Where are you traveling? I've been to places in Central America and places like Egypt where you can get laundry done very cheaply. The trick is also to only pay for it to be washed and then dry it yourself on a travel laundry line you bring with you (Again humidity can be a problem.)

I’m actually a two bagger (don’t kill me!). However that is everything I own. My main bag is a Tortuga Air. I would love to go fully one bag, but I have a CPAP that takes up a bit of room. I also have a Tom Binh Synapse 25 (I just got it, before that I was using a Timbuk2 messenger bag as my personal item). I switched to the Synapse because When I have to carry around both for a while having my heavy gear bag around my neck caused an incredibly sore neck. I needed something with real straps.

Tortuga Air

First I’ll deal with the Tortuga. I love that bag. I’ve been using it for about 1.5 years now and it looks almost the same as when I bought it. I’ve wanted to get a new bag, but I can’t justify replacing it while it’s going so well. Their are tons of in-depth reviews of the Tortuga that will go more in depth then anything I’ll do, but I’ll go over it a bit. I love that it lays completely flat when open and that it has compression straps inside the main compartment as well as the outside. The half mesh zip side of the bag is also nice for separating out smaller things if you aren’t using packing cubes. The mesh is surprisingly strong too. I put my CPAP in that mesh area for the past year and it hasn’t ripped through. Just be sure not to put anything pointy in there (like power cables). It holds as much as you really need.

The only stuff that annoys me about it is that the smaller front compartment can get squished out if you put too much stuff in the mesh compartment. This is probably not an issue for most people, but my CPAP makes the bottom part of the front pocket pretty unusable. Although I managed to put my big li-ion battery in there (20,000 mah). The “Water bottle” pocket isn’t big enough for my water bottle, however I don’t really use the bag for stuff like that. I keep a deck of cards (plastic) and my head torch (Petzl) in that pocket. Always ready for the dark or a good drinking game.

Tom Binh Synapse 25

Like I said earlier I just got this a week or two ago. I got it with the padded hip belt, and the Freudian Slip. The Feudian Slip doesn’t look like something that I’ll use though. It takes up WAY too much room and I use quite a few pens and notebooks but it’s too much even for me. I’m replacing it with some Tom Binh stuff sacks. The hip belt was probably superfluous, but when I’m just going for a couple of weeks the Tortuga is overkill and I figured I could get by with the Synapse. My initial thoughts on the bag when I got it went something along the lines of, “DAAAAAAAAAAAAMN!” I’m very impressed with the overall worksmanship. That nylon is super durable feeling and the zippers are on point. I am pretty rough on bags and I think that this one will do me pretty good for quite a while.

I love the front pockets and the water bottle pocket, although I’m currently using that for my umbrella and have my water bottle (a collapsed Vapur Eclipse). The bottom holds my over-sized but very nice toiletry/first aid kit, and I have cables, pens, batteries, and eating utensils in the side pockets. The inside is one of my laptops, I’ll probably put my iPad in there too, my notebook, my cable/tech organizer, and a small packing cube of clothes. It’s probably a week worth of clothes if you pushed it. This is so that if my main bag got lost while traveling I wouldn’t be screwed.

I know that I could probably get by with just the Tortuga, but well I don’t feel like it and I like having a separate work bag. Also I don’t pack too many clothes. I pack too many cables. WHY do I fell the need to pack 3 cables of every type when I know that micro USB and thunderbolt cables are ubiquitous? I blame society, and my hatred of cables constantly breaking. Oh well, USB C is still pretty hard to find at convenience stores anyway.

Stuff I don’t like about it, hmm, I haven’t road tested it yet. I’m staying with family to help my brother with the baby once he’s born (hopefully today). However I hope to get it on the road in the next month or so, and do a weekend trip in a couple of weeks. The straps are pretty stiff, but I’ve read they break in really well after a little while. I wish the adjustment straps for the main straps had a clip to make them not bounce around when you’re walking. That’s minor and I’ll probably just rubber band them, or maybe make a clip out of something.

Odd Bags

I also just got a Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Day Pack which replaces the old Tortuga packable day pack I had. Don’t grab one of those by the way. Mine ended up having the bottom completely shredding along the seams after about 6-7 months. Granted I was pretty hard on it, but still. It looked like a cat had shredded it finely. No way to repair. I like having an extra bag like this for the beach, or just to grab some groceries.

I also got a Scrubba to replace my old dry bag I got in the Philippines. It allows me to wash my clothes in it very easily, and it packs down MUCH smaller than my old dry bag, although it doesn’t feel as durable. The old one was just a big bag of rubber and felt like you could throw it down a rocky hill and it would be fine. I also used it as a cooler periodically. That’s actually a pro tip for you guys. Put ice in your dry bag and some beers for the beach. BAM instant (not very effective) cooler.
