    I'll be walking the Camino Frances starting in Pamplona on 22 May 2017 and ending in Santiago. I'm a 26 y/o female who weighs 61kg and I have a Deuter Futura SL 30L pack. I know this pack is a bit heavy but it fits me perfectly and it's so comfortable that I'm willing to sacrifice that weight...

    Last minute help for packing list please? :D

    Hi peregrinos! In less than 24 hours, I hop on the plane that will take me to Madrid and then the bus that will take me to Burgos. I am so excited, but worried that I haven't packed well enough!

    Dissect My Packing List...Go!

    Here is my entire packing list. This is grim: Total weight, including a full Nalgene bottle is 21.1 pounds. This also includes the few ounces of the clothes that will actually be on my body, not in my pack (doesn't include the shoes, though, because those will always be out of my pack)...

    Packing List Camino Spain April-October 2016-07-08

    Over the years I have noticed that carrying only what you need gives so much pleasure. This is different for everybody. Fully packed, my backpack is usually around 11,5 kilo, but the challenge is to keep it under 10. This is good for your feet and body, making days lighter and longer distances...

    Another Packing List (Please forgive me!)

    My Camino (Frances) starts in a couple of months time so I am trying (rather excitedly) to get myself well prepared. I will be flying into Lourdes, where I will stay for a couple of days, and then get the train to St Jean. After I finish I am hoping to fly over to Italy where I will spend some...

    Caminho/Camino Gear Basics for May/June 2016

    I still have a few more things coming in to be added (or not) to this gear, but not much! Things such as a Leki Cane/Pole (thank you amorfati1)and of course a water container or two and any last minute changes. I'll be adding weights to this image in a bit. :)

    Essential clothing (men only)

    I've just read today's fashionista article which details the only ten essential clothing/accessory items for any man. It simplifies the whole "packing list" dilemma if you stick to these: (1) A beautiful leather travel bag (2) An expensive watch (3) A bow tie (4) A blazer (5) A dress shirt (6)...

    Four weeks out -- another packing list to review?

    I feel the anxiety/excitement building! My pack is packed and I've started wearing it on my training hikes. It feels good, but haven't done one of my usual 12-miles-with-hills hike yet. Total pack weight is 7024g (15.5 lbs), plus a waist pack of 1348g (3 lbs), plus my ukulele at 458g (1 lb)...

    A few questions

    1. Some people have posted very detailed packing lists with weight of each item. My question is this: Does this list includes the clothes that you will wear on a typical day, in which case the pack weight is even less than the total posted. 2. Many people say "bring a hat". Why would I need a...
