A lot depends on the style you're looking for. I'll also say that security in a bag is a myth. There are things to discourage certain behavior, but ultimately a bag should never be seen as a secure container. (after all it can always be cut)

What I chose.

I traveled for about a month in Europe staying in hostels. Even though it was only a month I could have traveled for about a year (adding only a tablet) with the bag/things I brought.

Osprey Farpoint 40 Travel Backpack - $150 (Discontinued)

[Osprey Farpoint 40 Travel Backpack

  • $160 (New Version)](

    I love this bag but it might not be the single best option for you. It's low profile, turns into a duffle bag (more about that later) and although it doesn't look like a school backpack, it doesn't standout like this either.

    The reason I love that it turns into a duffle bag is because theres a semi hidden velcro pocket in the bottom where the cover rolls into. This is a great place to sew or velcro a small zippered wallet or bag to store extra money or valuables. It's not secure as much as its hidden. This won't help you if they steal the whole bag, but it will help you if they just ransack the place and steal from the open compartments.

    Other Options

    There are a ton of other options. I suggest watching the VagaBrothers Video - How to Choose the BEST Travel BACKPACK | Pros & Cons Minimalist Backpack Review and Travel Tips: Packing Hacks, Tips & Essentials

    The F Stop bags look great, but are pretty pricy. Depending on what lenses you're bringing (18-55mm kit lens VS 70-200mm VR f2.8) it may or may not be worth it for size and configurability. I personally bought a Sony a6000 and left my big DSLR at home. That was actually a really good choice for the type of trip I did, but if I was going for a year (like you are) I understand needing the big camera. You might want to get camera/lens inserts like this (but not necessarily that one, I just clicked on the first one I saw on amazon) to store and protect those other lenses.

    Hope that helps.

    The following is copy and pasted from an email I sent to family friends traveling abroad. It gives links and ideas for things that help when traveling minimally.


  • 2 Mini cologne bottles - Well worth it if you are doing carry on only, or if you like to bring more than one scent with you. Depending on how much you use I find that a bottle filled up lasts about 1.5-2 weeks if you are using 2-3 sprays a day.

  • World power adapter - Awesome adapter. A lot nicer than the 50 mini adapters you have to piece together like legos.

  • Power strip - I never used this. I wouldn't get it unless you knew you needed it. They are good ways to make friends at airports though, as plugs are always in high demand and few people will say no to letting you free up a plug or two.

  • Battery pack - (updated version) OR While there are cheaper and smaller ones, this is the perfect size and capacity if you are bringing a couple or more devices. This will charge a phone many times over. It's especially handy if you want to leave it charging in the hotel then bring it with you during the day after it's charged.

  • Compressed charcoal deodorizers - Great to throw in shoes or bags that start to get smelly. Useful in hostels.

  • Microfiber towel - Very useful for hostels as most will charge you to use towels

  • Tripod - paired with a phone mount ( this can be used to hold the phone on long flights. Really nice for watching movies on the plane or waiting for a train.

  • Roll up 1L water bottles - Great for airplanes (no longer need to buy water after TSA).

  • I packed all of my clothes into cubes and a flat packer.



    Since I was traveling alone, and in hostels, security was a slightly bigger deal for me. I carried my passport on my person or locked in my hostel (many had lockers or metal lock boxes).

    At all times I had a photo copy of my passport and everything in my wallet, some local currency, and a print out of all the embassies in the area. (Attached to this email.) I printed this double sided and had multiple copies with me.
    I told my mom, "At any time I want to be able to have everything stolen, but still have a way back home.” My credit card will do cash transfers internationally and also includes a continuous travel insurance package.

    I would highly suggest making three copies of your passport and all credit cards and other ID you are taking. One lives on your person when your passport is stored elsewhere (hotel, for example), one lives in your luggage (preferably hidden/tucked away), and one stays with a trusted friend or family member that will be in the States for the duration of your trip. If anything happens they will be able to assist with proving your identity to the State Department, thus speeding the process along. I suggest keeping some cash tucked in your passport (along with that embassy list), your copy of the passport in the luggage, and then the copy of the passport and embassy list in your wallet. At this point you have three possibilities of things to grab to prove your identity/pay for a cab/tell you where to go.

    While this may seem a little overboard, I find it doesn't take that long to set up and helps greatly should anything bad happen. Also consider registering with the State Department. This helps them track Americans abroad should anything happen, and also gives you alerts, should anything happen.


    Tech Tips

    I also used a service called Line2 to give me a US phone number to call from and receive calls to while I was away. I have T-Mobile that gives me included unlimited international data. As long as I had a 4g signal, I also had a phone I could make and receive calls on. Google Voice and Skype would also do this. Do be aware of how much international data costs. Wifi is easy to find, but I suggest using a VPN on your phone or laptop for any web surfing. And even with the VPN I would not suggest logging into any financial (bank, etc) while abroad unless you are on a trusted wifi network (aka, friends).

    For maps you can download parts of Google Maps by searching the city and clicking “Download." This should work on Android and iOS versions of Google Maps.

u/Kalahan7 · 6 pointsr/onebag

I came back from Vietnam 2 days ago for a month long trip. The first time one bagging.

I used the €35 "Amazon Basics" backpack because I'm cheap.

Let me tell you, the thing held up fantastic. I was really happy with the bag in general.

  • Build quality was great. Hold up perfectly. No wear and tear
  • Overall base weight was pretty high at 1,7 Kg but I never had airlines actually weighing carry on bags.
  • The thing has measurements that fit every carry on requirements I could find. But again, never had an airline measure my check in bag before.
  • Expandable. If you want some extra space (outside of what airlines typically allow) you can expand the bag to increase in size.
  • Feature rich: Folds open like a suitcase, laptop sleeve, Lockable zipper on main compartment, compression straps, removable shoulder and hip strap, backpack straps can be tucked away, 2 strong handles. inner mesh pocket, trolley sleeve, "middle front" pocket with some basic organisation, front pocket for easy access to flight documents
  • Generally comfortable to carry. Straps were padded enough and has some basic back ventilation
  • Light gray internal fabric which makes it visually easier to find things in your bag.
  • No water bottle pockets on the side, something I did miss.

    For €35 this thing was pretty freaking solid. I'm sure that there are better bags out there but usually they are triple the price. I honestly wouldn't know what they could do better than this one other than lighter base weight, better back ventilation, and side pockets. To me those things aren't worth the extra cost.

    I was skeptical for this bag but I'm glad I brought it with me.
u/Just4L0lz · 2 pointsr/onebag

I would second the hard drive situation. I would instead maybe subscribe to a Flickr account or something while I am traveling, and upload photos from my ipad/laptop whenever i get internet. I would maybe keep 1 portable ssd (like the Samsung T5 500gb) as its really lightweight, and wouldnt get damaged from being thrown around. Use that for backing up things when I dont have internet.

Are you planning on taking a laptop? If so which one?Because you can actually get multi-port chargers with USB C Power delivery so you can carry one brick for charging. Alternatively, I have seen Anker with USB chargers with built in batteries

I would say take your gopro with you. Especially if you like anything sporty, kayaking, gokarts, zip lining etc. I have had friends who took their gopro and left their dslrs when they go away.

I agree about the multiple lenses, think about taking a multi zoom (the 18-55 F2.8-F4 will be awesome for this) and maybe a fixed prime (I like the 23mm F2 - the 35mm equivalent focal length is really amazing). If you want to travel light, I would skip the telephoto. Also, dont forget the extra batteries.

If you havent gotten the XT1 yet, consider getting the Olympus EM5ii second hand with the 14-150mm or the newer 12-200mm lens. You will not need anything else, in rains, storms, snow, deserts or anywhere.

I would say pack a GOOD rain jacket. You are traveling to SE Asian counties, rain is going to be very common. You want to make sure you have a good rain jacket. I would say if you can get a back that includes a rain cover, its a good idea. There is nothing as bad as getting somewhere and finding everything in your bag is drenched. On a trip to europe, I was hauling my bags in the rain from a train station to the hostel and my things in the bag did get a little wet.

Did you consider the Peak Design travel pack? Or the Topo designs travel bag? They are also good alternatives if you were still undecided on the travel pack.

Instead of the sweater, get an Icebreaker base layer (something like the 260 is good). You can wear this inside your tshirt and it keeps you warm AF. I am wearing the Icebreaker 200 bottoms as I type. Some of the best in the world.

u/bookmonkey786 · 4 pointsr/onebag

I'll let you in on a secret, you can get away with a perfectly affordable backpacks under $100 that will meet most of your needs. Above that it is specific features and looks. People can and have travel for months across Europe with just a Jansport backpack. But a nicer more expensive bag is totally worth it for the features it offers, but you should really KNOW what you want. Some features are must have for some people and totally useless deal breakers for others. I didnt know what bag was perfect for me until I had traveled a while and and tested a few bags.

The low end is Amazon basics gets the job done for cheap if you want to test thing out this will work fine, lacks good padded hip belt so if you're sensitive weight its not as good.

[Osprey Farpoint],( mid tier bag, can be found for less than $100 occasionally. One of the most common backpacking bag around, hood basic travel backpack with great quality and track record.

Chase Reeves does a good comparison of various higher end travel bags if you see something you like you can look for more reviews of it, most will be inside your budget.

u/Eazy_DuzIt · 5 pointsr/onebag

If you're ok with more of a trimmer instead of a razor:
I brought this $10 Wahl travel trimmer on my last trip, 7 weeks, and it was awesome. Could easily take on a full beard if I didn't hurry it. Runs off 1 AA and comes with a 1 and 2 guard. The open guard trims pretty close but it won't give a close shave like a razor will. Best of all it's TINY. Like half the size of the palm of my hand.

u/rosemaryorchard · 4 pointsr/onebag

> I read good reviews about Logitech keyboard but it maybe too thick to I went w The official Apple one.

I have the Smart Keyboard and the Brydge keyboard. I like the Brydge at home but usually, switch back to the Smart Keyboard when on the road.

> Where do you guys stash the pencil while Traveling
Either on the side of the iPad or in a bag with some other tech pieces (cables and chargers).

> Do you have a privacy screen on it for flights ?

Nope - but I also usually have a window seat and can angle the device more towards the corner if there's an issue. But I'm not working on anything top secret and if someone really wants to watch a film over my shoulder without audio then that's fine.

> if you found a good charger w multi usb c plugs

I personally have and use this Satechi charger though the more powerful port is meant for my laptop (I can and have charged my iPad through it though).

> backup battery w juice for this and iPhone

I have an Aukey Powerbank which is 10000mAh and a ZMI one which is 20,000mAh - which one I take depends on the trip.

u/cba85 · 2 pointsr/onebag

I personally use the Wahl Travel Trimmer when I travel. It’s compact, cordless and uses only an AA battery.

The Xiaomi electric razer can be a good choice for shaving during a trip. I don’t use it personally but Xiaomi usually makes good quality product for a very good price.

I hope it will help you to choose a lightweight electric razor :)

Completely forgot about the sim, thanks so much. Looking into Express VPN, seems nice. Yeah good point about a nice outfit, studying at university and there is a graduation at some point I think. I think I'm going to order one of these. Whoops! Forgot the sunglasses. I'll throw some in. Thanks so much for the help! How long did you go for?

u/lordhamster1977 · 3 pointsr/onebag

There are like a million versions of that same basic adapter. You can probably score one off ebay for less than $3.

That said, if you want something super packable and light that works worldwide check out:

Just got my Card Travel Adapter 4-Pro in the mail last night. (

Saw it recommended frequently on this sub.

Construction seems great, USB-C port is an awesome addition.

Can't testify to its converting ability yet since I'm still on USA sockets. One Amazon review mentioned an issue with 220v.


u/KlfJoat · 4 pointsr/onebag

I see what you're bringing in other replies. And I don't have recommendations for those things.

But what I don't see is anything about your work tools. I would imagine that robot installation and servicing would require a hardware toolkit, an electronics toolkit, and a computing toolkit.

My job is highly technical and requires a number of computing devices that have to be charged at all times. So what I use and recommend there is as follows:

u/agentmnkys · 9 pointsr/onebag

So I traveled overseas for a month out of this bag

I brought with me stuff I had in my closet already and purchased a couple small toiletries because I was out. So all told, I spent about $20. It’s been a couple years and that bag is still going strong, and I use it for all sorts of things. Sometimes I’ll pack it folded into itself into a hard sided carryon for more local trips; it’s great for amusement parks too.

Maybe one day I’ll upgrade, but for now it’s perfect for the kind of travel I do: mostly based in cities with public transport, for anywhere from one week to one month, all kinds of weather, no special tech gear (usually just my phone and a kindle), though there is an unpadded sleeve in it for a laptop.

If we go back far enough I think I spent $13 on a packing cube set from Amazon that I still use.

u/ScrewTheAverage · 3 pointsr/onebag

We're not sure which one (if any) is a 'white label' of the other (they look very similar) but as an alternative we've been very happy with the Kikkerland UL03-A. It's also affordable at about $10 (and currently less than the one above).

We're r/Onebag travelers so volume (4 1/8 L x 1 6/8 W x 5/8 D inches, per our measurements) and weight (1.6 ounces, per product page) are very important to us.

We've plugged/unplugged it over ~75 times over the last year and it's as good as new.

u/TheUseOfWords · 13 pointsr/onebag

This Anker Powercore 20100 will charge an iPad mini 4 times, and Anker is very trustworthy, good quality, and good value in my experience.

u/littlebloofox · 2 pointsr/onebag


In an old comment of yours also replying to a laundry sink bag, you mentioned the things you'd change for the future. In that, these two items were listed:

Sea To Summit Lite Line Clothesline

Paracord Planet Mil-Spec Commercial Grade 550lb Type III Nylon Paracord 25 feet Turquoise

My question is what's the paracord for? At first I thought it was to switch out your old clothes line method, but then I saw the sea to Summit one. Also how is the Dr. Bronner soap treating you? Is it a nice peppermint smell? Does it clean your clothes well?

u/blahblahrasputan · 3 pointsr/onebag


Anker PowerCore 20100mAh because they are so so cheap and reliable!


Anker PowerCore+ 20100mAh if you have an item that needs more amperage. USB-C phones or Nintendo Switch, something that wants a little more oomf. Not that more exp.

We own two of each for our camper. We live on these things for a long trips. They're also under regulation size for all flights. Both not too bad for (mens) jeans or a jacket pocket for their capacity, kinda bulky but you aren't going to get slimmer for that size. Definitely comfortable to throw in your backpack for a hike. Durable so far (2 years of many many camping trips and flights home)

u/sovelong1 · 1 pointr/onebag

Anybody used the card-TEC? Currently have this - + a zolt: I'm really just looking to slim down so I don't necessarily need the usb-c, could just get the adapter with one or two usb ports. My current universal adapter doesn't way much but the form factor is a little bulky to me. Wondering if it's worth spending extra on one of these but I'm not seeing many reviews....

Mogics thing looks cool but says it weights 16oz? That's pretty heavy.

u/gemorris · 13 pointsr/onebag

I get adapters for my cords so I can carry fewer: I have just a short and long USB-C cord but then alternate tips I can put on it to change into micro USB, lightning, and plug into a regular USB slot if need be.

I also carry a tiny flashlight on a keychain hanging off my pack - it's surprising how often this comes in handy.

The Kikkerland Universal Travel Adapter is AMAZING, works everywhere and is a third of the size of most travel adapters:

u/VaughnTomTucker · 7 pointsr/onebag

When I'm not around a washing machine, I hand wash yesterday's socks, underwear, and t-shirt arm pits. I find my stuff needs a washing machine after 3-4 hand washings.

If I'm feeling lazy, and there's no consequences to taking a longer shower, I'll shower with my underwear/socks on, then at the end take them off and give them a final scrub. Doesn't work as well...but did I mention lazy?

I carry this clothesline, this sink stopper, and most importantly, Dr. Bronners soap! It does a good job of deodorizing, and I only have to put in a few drops in each "load" of hand laundry.

u/xwm69x · 2 pointsr/onebag

I bought this one off Amazon Smile for $20. Seemed like a good combo of price, weight, and size, but I can’t yet attest to the quality since it just came in. I think waffle linen is supposed to be more comfortable if you’re willing to spend a little more

u/DeimosValvicious · 1 pointr/onebag

The plan is to do laundry weekly. I also got a killer clothes line that takes up little room and weighs nothing. here

The scrubs is more just Incase. I don’t wanna trust a service to not stick our wool in a dryer and sometimes it’s not easy to fill a sink. We bought this cleaner called “Soak.” The reviews are really good. I’ll have to update. At this point I don’t plan on doing laundry daily. I like to take one day out of the week and relax, cook some good food, and catch up on some Stranger Things.

u/duucfho · 3 pointsr/onebag

Thanks, the upcoming Ankers look promising. I'll have to keep an eye out for them. I'd probably skip the one with the A ports to save some money, as I already own the tiny Aukey charger and would use it for any misc devices that need it.

u/thedonwhoknocks · 3 pointsr/onebag

I use the AmazonBasics Adventure Backpack as my EDC (business casual workplace) and onebag. My last 7 day trip I packed 3 days of clothes, a rain jacket, a 15-inch MBP, size 10 running shoes, some random electronics, toiletries, my wife's hair dryer, and bluetooth over-the-ear headphones. The bag still fit under the seats on our flights (within US). My bag also has the TSA "lay flat" laptop compartment to speed through security. But Amazon has since changed the zipper design to remove that feature.

A backpack that has excellent organization and is very reasonably priced. Below that is a podcast episode of a girl that went to Costa Rica and how she took a school backpack that only weighed 10 lbs, and finally a blog from Tortuga Backpacks of a couple that took everything in one bag. Enjoy.

u/eddyinet · 2 pointsr/onebag

I made the switch about a year ago and it's been great. I opted for a slightly larger size than I'd like since I use it so much. Amazon Link

u/DaddyKoolAid · 5 pointsr/onebag

Yeah - I take a bladeless multitool and they find it at security more than 50% of the time, and often take some convincing to let me though with it. (It was confiscated once, too.)

A knife seems like a bad idea, as there's a good chance they'll find it, and at best they'll just take it.

Another USB-C charger option is this.. I think it's more compact, yet still chucks out 45w over USB-C.

Edit: Just noticed that they said:

>Im always checking my crap in, unless its a 5 day trip or less, and the majority of my trips are over a month

which means the knife probably mainly goes in checked luggage.

u/koottravel · 2 pointsr/onebag

Amazon Essential Packable Daypack. I've had mine going on three years now. My favorite thing about it is no branding like the HikePro bags and pretty much all the other ones.

u/BrokenAglet · 5 pointsr/onebag

Is what you have currently too bulky for your needs? Most universal adapters are pretty clunky but if you're staying in one area for an extended period of time you could pick up the adapter just for that region.

the anker powercore 5000 is a battery pack + wall plug that has 2 USB(A) ports. Could potentially save weight as it's multipurpose, but it depends on how much you use a powerbank.

u/JewishDan18 · 2 pointsr/onebag

I mean, just for a 60w charger Ravpower has one 30 percent lighter and the classic choice is the Innergie, which is nearly half the weight of your pick.

Instead of the 100g dual port charger, there are a few directions one could go. Two of these saves 20 percent of the weight while giving you two 18w PD ports. If you don't need two 18w ports, you can sub in one of these to save another 10 percent. If you don't really need power delivery (which you really might not, most non-laptops don't pull more than 12w unless the battery is very low) you can just take one of these and save half your weight. Hell, if you really want to make the most of 100g, I'd just take two of these and know that any tablet or phone I have will charge extremely fast and have a backup for my main charger in case of failure.

Both Ravpower and Aukey have longer warranties than Anker, and I've had great experiences dealing with both of them. I don't really think Anker is competitive at all in the lightweight charger landscape.

One question: did you consider charging your devices off your laptop while it's charging?

u/movesthetasty · 7 pointsr/onebag

I like to use this travel adaptor. It's well built, packed with features, and small, light and minimal.

  • Can plug into any wall socket
  • Has 1 USB-C and 3 USB-A ports
  • You can also plug in another device into it
  • Works across a varities of voltages and amps

    Basically it powers my laptop, powers my phone(s), power bank and anything else. I have to credit /u/heronebag for the recommendation. off her blog.
u/WorkAcct622 · 1 pointr/onebag

Might be worth checking out the AmazonBasics Carry-on. Looks pretty similar to my eBags Weekender but at sub $50, pretty tough to beat if you just need a bag for stateside travel.
Edit: link:

u/OddSardine · 1 pointr/onebag

Check in amazon a brand called G4Free, their foldable backpack is around the size you want, and weights less than 500 grams. I bought one and really liked it. The only downside is it doesn’t have hip support. I took it on a road trip through Ireland and managed to get the weight around 6.5 kilos.

Couldn't find any juice but had the headlamp for when I did early morning drone shots and visiting Herculaneum (looked deeper into caves). I already had it an its small so I threw it in. No knife, TSA approved multi-tool which we used a couple of times mostly for scissors.

u/csytan · 1 pointr/onebag

I've tried the Mogics Bagel, but ended up selling it. It was still pretty heavy and bulky. If your needs are just a laptop + a phone charger, then it is overkill.

Here's my current set up:

  • Hug-A-Plug 2 outlet adapter
  • A regular cheapo travel adapter for US plugs
  • Laptop charger (240V compatible)
  • AUKEY USB Wall Charger, (240V compatible)

    The bulk of the weight/space is taken up by the laptop charger, which is a requirement anyways.
u/trofel · 3 pointsr/onebag

I have a Skross since ages, works well and very sturdy.


Before that I had a similar looking one but much cheaper, generic brand, you could feel it was much more fagile and poorly built. Tt burnt in South Africa when I plugged it into the wall lol.

u/loddist · 5 pointsr/onebag

The closest thing that I know of is the Cardtec CA4-Pro. It was kickstarted successfully a few years back and its on amazon US if that's where you're from. You can also buy it from their singapore website.

  1. 45W USB-C Power Delivery (PD)

  2. 1x USB-C slot

  3. 3x USB A slots

  4. International travel adapter built-in

  5. AC socket (to plug in another charger or other electronics)

u/AaronDoud · 11 pointsr/onebag

They exist. There is even an AmazonBasics one. I think people who travel a lot (enough to care about one bag travel) don't have a problem with spending a few hundred on the right bag.

But for those who are just getting into this and are not sure using what they have or even buying a "cheap" bag makes sense.

u/whoamI_246Obiwan · 1 pointr/onebag

Actually this one.

It may not really look it, but it's got a bit of a clamshell opening. You can definitely lay it flat and open it up at the bottom to get something out there without opening the top, etc. I had the backpack for a week, came across the Air and some money, and got the Air instead.

u/mingyjongo · 11 pointsr/onebag

The CARD Travel Adapter has 1 USB-C, 3 USB-A, and adapters built in. Been using it constantly since September and can vouch it's well worth the money.

u/Askii · 2 pointsr/onebag

It's a towel woven flat rather than made of terry, so it packs small and dries quickly. The good ones are made of very soft long-fiber cotton. I have one made of soft linen.

Companies that make peshtemal towels often also make matching bath/spa robes.

u/ilalli · 22 pointsr/onebag

I like Turkish peshtemal towels. One tip is to wash and dry them several times before you will actually use them, as they are not very absorbent out of the package and become softer and more absorbent over time.

First thing off the top of my head is combining the charger with the powerbank such as something along these lines

u/takethewaffles · 1 pointr/onebag

This is probably similar to another comment, but I've had this for a few years on multiple trips to various countries and have never had a problem

u/daeatenone · 1 pointr/onebag

I picked one of these almost 5 years ago @ a drug store and damn thing won't die (I have the older model, this one looks better). It's a foil-style saver that's waterproof and takes 2 AAA batteries. It's best if you shave every day since it's awful for longer facial hair. That said, it's relatively compact, really durable, doesn't require oil/cream and gets the job done well enough while traveling. I have not had to do anything but replace the batteries and rinse it out every now and then since 2012.

$15 on amazon :)

Amazon Basics makes a carry on travel knapsack that looks reasonable.

I got the one from Amazon Basics (

Did not want to invest a lot upfront because its my first attempt....

I have two of these:

I like how quickly they dry every morning after being used. They seem absorbent, with a nice roughness, and no weird smells. Shrinkage isn’t bad, and they end up big enough to do the job even after going through the dryer.

Edit: they have a nifty little loop on one edge so you can hang them from a hook.

I'm bald but I trim my beard. Usually I opt for a barbershop, but sometimes I travel with this little guy. It's portable, but it'll take a long while to use.

u/pencilvested · 2 pointsr/onebag

I carry this $11 pocket sized wahl trimmer when I'm traveling for more than a few days. Uses a single AA battery, available anywhere.

u/kingkake · 2 pointsr/onebag

I have one and the one time I tried to use it in Malaysia it didn't really work so great.

This is about as tiny as you can get: Kikkerland UL03-A Universal Travel Adapter

u/CWarner818 · 2 pointsr/onebag

I've been using these for 13 years. They last forever if you use lithium AA batteries in them, and for a few dollars more you can get one with a pop-out trimmer.

The 40 is also on sale for $80:

I use the ZMI USB PD Powerbank for all of those items. It is the recomended powerbank for the guys in Wirecutter. It is actually 20000 mAh but is really small for that.

I currently use a RAVPower USB C Battery Pack 20100 since it's USB-C and can power my MacBook (bought in 2017). If I were to buy a new one today though, I'd probably look at this ZMI since it's a bit thinner/lighter and the power output is higher.

Have you checked out the Card Travel Adapter 4-Pro? Its USB-C port is 45W instead of 30W, it has 3 USB-A ports (originally wrote 4), and the international adapters are built-in and fold out from the back. Disclaimer: I don’t own it yet, so can’t personally vouch for it, but lots of people on this sub have it and it seems to be well-liked.

Satechi Dual Usb-C

I bring this to charge my laptop and headphones/phone as theyre all usb c

u/BarnyardPuer · 1 pointr/onebag

I'd recommend the card 4 pro: link. I've been using for 2 months now and really like it, but as someone else mentioned, the Mu One would probably work as well.


- 1x 45 W USB-c charging port

- 3x 15 W regular USB for other gear.

- 1x generic AC wall plug

- Reasonably compact and plugs into most outlets.


- Expensive

- Back cover is a little annoying.

- Plugs into wall from flat side, which covers adjacent outlets at times.

I carry this along with a couple of USB-c and USB cables and it covers all of my charging needs for macbook pro, ipad, phone, airpods. No bulky adapters needed.

u/intrepid-onion · 2 pointsr/onebag

My anker power brick is charged with a micro USB port, so it doesn’t really matter which charger you use. The wall charger I have is this one.

Two ports are enough for me and I mostly travel in Europe. If needs be, I’ll just add an adapter to my pack.

I brought this guy on my trip (also suggested by /u/earlearlearl): It's very compact and takes a single AA battery.

I haven't shaved with a razor in years. Beard grows too fast and I have sensitive skin. I'm 5 weeks into a 10 week trip and I tell you I really miss my electric shaver at home. If I could bring one luxury item next time, I'd bring replace it with the shaver I brought in a heartbeat (

Hi, this is not that hard to find if you search. The only tough part about your requirement is the Macbook requirement. Even though you didn't mention it, I assume you have a Macbook that charges via USB C? Take a look at

u/aoethrowaway · 3 pointsr/onebag

I disagree. I have a very similar pack I bought & brought to about 8 different countries over 4 months. It's been used as a sole bag for 2 weeks in Iceland & Europe, sole bag for 2 weeks in Hawaii, and as just a day pack stuffed inside my hyperlite 2400 for everything else. I have about 5 different packs and use different combos depending on airline restrictions and mode of travel. These cheapo $20 packable bags kick ass either as a sole bag or compliment. I had no problems & the company actually replaced my first one already, for free. Here's the one I have:

Hi Canadian! Are you hoping to buy any/all of these from MEC? I exclusively buy my backpacks from MEC regardless as to what they are because of their incredible return policy.

>We guarantee the quality of our products. If the quality of an item hasn’t met your expectations, you can bring it back. We also guarantee the product selection advice we give. If something you purchased based on this advice turns out to be unsuitable, you can bring it back for an exchange, refund, repair, or credit.

They really stand by the whole "product selection advice" thing. I have friends who work there, and I myself have returned backpacks years after I've purchased it because a zipper has broken, or a strap has broken and it has been replaced, no questions asked. I've returned hiking boots that DID. NOT. WORK. Replaced, no questions asked. Whatever you choose, get the advice from MEC, buy it from MEC, because if it doesn't work out, you can switch it for something different, because it did not work for you. They resell refurbished products with the same guarantee or donate them, so their returns do not go to waste.

I myself was looking at the Vapour Overnight pack. The reason I didn't get it was because I:

  • I worry I would be frustrated by how the inside is treated. Other items in the Vapour line mention that the interior has a "stickyness" to it. I can see a lot of sighs in my future with that bag.

  • didn't like that it didn't have chest or waist straps. Personally, I need them, or at least one of either. I'm 5'8" with crooked shoulders and a back problem.

  • I made and did not return a bad purchase on a recommendation from someone who does not have the same travel needs as me, and I'm feeling incredibly guilty about that purchase to buy something else before I sell it.

    The reason I still want to get it is:

  • I would rather get it, find out I hate it and exchange it for something better than to learn it could have been everything I wanted.

  • it looks so very waterproof and that makes me so very happy.

  • I like the compartments a lot. A lot a lot.

  • The price is very right.

  • It's so lightweight.

I recently picked up this anker


Using it for small devices on the go but they do make a beffier one that you can charge a laptop no problem.
