    I would totally get some technical/sport shirts and pants. Usually looks really nice, cleans/dries fast and its comfortable. Good place to invest some money. As every day shirt its the best, those wont even get wrinkles. And they weight and take so much less space. Then one or two normal shirts for when you want to dress up nicer.

    You bring up an interesting topic about shoes. I have never thought about thr natural tendencies of our feet and I should probably give those shoes a try.



  3. Mike Hallman on June 21, 2018 at 12:23 am

    Super helpful, and yeah more videos like this!



  4. Dimo Anad on June 21, 2018 at 12:24 am

    Condoms?



  5. Christofer Ärleryd on June 21, 2018 at 12:24 am

    Lems are great, but they wear quickly on warm surfaces. Look into Joe Nimble if you want something more durable with similar toe width!



  6. Leo B on June 21, 2018 at 12:25 am

    Did he asume that women don’t wear boxers?



  7. CrankyBubushka on June 21, 2018 at 12:25 am

    Very informative, thank you!



  8. TheKsourmoon on June 21, 2018 at 12:26 am

    For females in terms of undergarments while long term minimalist travel..I’d invest in a few pairs of what they call "Period Panties" they work as both regular panties and help when you’re on your flow and travelling. I invested in a pair for work as my job requires a 10-16 hour shift in which we get no bathroom breaks to change. They’re pretty lightweight, dry quick, and are comfortable if you don’t care as much for style! Super useful and relatively price affordable if you’re willing to make the investment!



  9. Yevgeniy Dyo on June 21, 2018 at 12:27 am

    The best travel gear list ever! thanks!



  10. Joe Z on June 21, 2018 at 12:27 am

    Your phone needs a new battery 😛



  11. GD on June 21, 2018 at 12:30 am

    You call this minimalist? He needed 15 minutes just to go through the entire list. and I suspect he might have missed few things. Happens when you have just too many things to worry about.



  12. Richard Bergin on June 21, 2018 at 12:30 am

    you could comfortably cut your clothes in half, 1 pair of multi purpose shoes works fine



  13. the second sunrise on June 21, 2018 at 12:30 am

    I love my Primal 2s! My dad calls them my "clown shoes haha.



  14. somename lessthing on June 21, 2018 at 12:31 am

    Looking pretty rough man. Are you getting enough sleep? The eyes tell all.



  15. LovingAtlanta on June 21, 2018 at 12:31 am

    👍Cool video. But Levi’s will not fail you…Levi’s jeans for men & women are very durable and last a really long time. 👍



  16. Unknown Blogger on June 21, 2018 at 12:32 am

    It’s not about what the best gear in the world, but what has the same feature for a budget. For example, a basic 2 person tent Quechua cost less than an ultralight version. I’m from Malaysia, so the basic one cost RM99, but the ultralight cost a whopping RM700.



  17. Thomas Jacob on June 21, 2018 at 12:32 am

    are all these recommended items vegan friendly?



  18. ulisseyamamoto on June 21, 2018 at 12:34 am

    Very helpful video.Thanks Man!



  19. kaiviti2013 on June 21, 2018 at 12:36 am

    0:16 Did you really had to fold out the jean to show "The Experience" lol



  20. Joie Mojica-Gahum on June 21, 2018 at 12:36 am

    You also need a thermal blanket like the one in roadeavour.



  21. The happy Camper on June 21, 2018 at 12:38 am

    I saw a recent interview of you and you have a belt bag, can you tell me the brand name?



  22. demeraradove on June 21, 2018 at 12:38 am

    you should pack it all up so that we can see what it looks like when you are moving



  23. Andrés 86 on June 21, 2018 at 12:38 am

    No deodorant!!!! Youre one of the smelly backpackers!!!



  24. Brandon Tomm on June 21, 2018 at 12:39 am

    Sanuks are really dope. They are minimalist shoes with a bunch of different styles, material and functions



  25. KEVINOPHOTO on June 21, 2018 at 12:44 am

    Astral loyaks are the same as lems shoes but way more durable with more grip, I have had both



  26. Jakub Godlewski on June 21, 2018 at 12:44 am

    what about a tent?



  27. Da Doofus on June 21, 2018 at 12:45 am

    "Don’t travel with these unless it’s super rainy" aye, I love in Wales mate. You seen the weather here? 😂



  28. Finn Corgi on June 21, 2018 at 12:45 am

    Yeah, that’s a normal amount of shirts. I went minimal and only have three short sleeve shirts. They are all dry wick shirt. While this is an older video, one thing I will advise is the Eddie Bauer line of dry wick plaid shirts that are not you traditional colours and are very vibrant while hiding any wrinkles with the line designs. Use that as a restaurant or meet up shirt. Then grab a light polyester athletic T-shirt with a longer hem in the back and if need be another one like that or a solid colour polo with a dip in the back like the athletic T. You get variety, something casual, a second option and one heavy endurance. The reason for 3 is in case you don’t have time to wash one you’ll have a spare clean one and interchange the two endurance shirts. Same with the underwear. Grab a couple Ex Officio and one dress to get laid/sleep in underwear. It might seem odd to have a special pair of underwear, but it’s a break from the usual and a little flair for your sack.

    All your options seem pretty reasonable, though I will suggest one thing. Grab a water nebulizer/mister with a pump. It’s $6. Look up how to make alcohol based disinfecting that kills odor, fungus, bacteria and smells good. Don’t grab the lysol, you shouldn’t use that on your feet if you get athlete’s foot and it’s isn’t good for the environment to toss multiple cans in the garbage when you’re done with it.. You can use the DIY spray on your clothes if you want to conserve water and detergent, use it on your armpits for deodorant, and you can use it to cool yourself off as that was the original purpose for it. It’s great. It takes up small space in whatever bag you carry, but it’s worth it.



  29. abrahamwinkies66 on June 21, 2018 at 12:45 am

    What about deodorant? Cmon man no reason to stink



  30. Sarah McTeague on June 21, 2018 at 12:46 am

    I feel the same way about my iPhone 6s



  31. Hasna' Abdulmajid on June 21, 2018 at 12:48 am

    This was a great informative video. I was wondering as I’m needing to purchase a new phone and want something versatile and good while traveling in case I don’t bring a laptop. What would you recommend in the phone arena since you were displeased with the Iphone6.



  32. DoCtorDestiny Hd on June 21, 2018 at 12:53 am

    why not just use a gopro? id like to use one in southeast asia but i dont see anyone using them



  33. Melissa Phillips on June 21, 2018 at 12:55 am

    I am cracking up @ "They kinda look like spatulas on your feet"



  34. André Graciotti on June 21, 2018 at 12:57 am

    great tips. thank you! It would be nice to see your backpack with all of these stuff together, though.



  35. Marc De Wilde on June 21, 2018 at 12:58 am

    what you’ll want are woollen T-shirts. An alpaca or merino wool T-shirt doesn’t itch and will last you a week . And you won’t smell like an animal after 2 days. The wool neutralizes odors. They are pricy but well worth the money. I know because I used them during a 10 day hike in Romania. Atb – Marc Belgium



  36. O& T on June 21, 2018 at 12:59 am

    Cool



  37. therealchickentender on June 21, 2018 at 1:00 am

    You’re on the right track — some good tips — but….. (I traveled for 2 years straight, fwiw)
    1. Jeans are just a big no – they’re heavy, they don’t move well, they don’t dry well, and they’re just more cons than they’re worth. Get some tough, light pants (cotton/nylon/spandex or poly blends) like a pair of Kuhl pants. They last as long as jeans but weigh 1/4 and dry in an 1/8 the time. Nothing cotton. Nothing.
    2. Shoes – you just don’t need a full high-top boot. Take a 3/4 height if you want but for serious hiking just a decent light trail shoe and a lightweight pair of gaiters is cheaper, lighter, easier.
    3. Underwear and socks. No cotton. No cotton. No cotton. (Some have mentioned Darn Tough socks and I gotta agree.) Also, if you’re anywhere that isn’t hot/humid, take a long a pair of synthetic or merino blend long underwear uppers and lowers. You can layer them underneath your clothes. Wear them as PJs when it’s colder. Super adaptable, light, dry super quick.
    4. Take some deodorant man! You’re not on the Appalachian Trail – you’re bunking with people, riding on trains and standing in public. Throw a stick of deodorant in there for godssake! I know you don’t think you smell, but you do. 😀
    5. Shirts. That’s too many shirt dude. Half that – wash one whenever you wash a pair of underwear – wear them into the shower with you and wash it while you shower. Constant rotation. Easy. Replace four of those shirt with one long-sleeved button for making yourself presentable those rare occasions you might need/want to.
    5. Finally – the pack. Light pack? Yes. Tiny 25 to 30L? No way…. When you travel you are going to want to pick things up here and there and you need some room to do that. 45-60L minimum in my opinion. Do NOT fill it. In fact make it a point to fill it no more than halfway. Having a lot of extra room in a pack is never a big deal, but running out of room in a pack… sucks. Have a pack that’s big enough to fit what you need now, what you might need in a colder climate, and what you might wanna pick up along the way. You can send things onward or homeward, drop things you don’t need, but you need a pack that can increase and descrease, not sticking you with just one smallest size.
    Thems my thoughts. Get the feck outta here people! Go!



  38. TcFW97TCM on June 21, 2018 at 1:01 am

    Any advice on what to add for mountaineering?



  39. Marvoji on June 21, 2018 at 1:01 am

    at 10:40 your pinky looks superrrr double jointed hahaha its bending across your hand



  40. Cody Harrigan on June 21, 2018 at 1:03 am

    I always bring a hammock. Light and makes sleeping outside so much more comfortable.



  41. Nova True on June 21, 2018 at 1:03 am

    I love this so much lol, I’ve watched other ones, but yours gets straight to the point! I loved the part about the cotton and the long pants



  42. princess evileye on June 21, 2018 at 1:04 am

    Best advice so far – I’ve already watched it 2x! 🙏🏼



  43. Kristiina Kasepalu on June 21, 2018 at 1:04 am

    Id add dry bags 😃 or the bags that you can choose to press air out 😄



  44. mark duncan on June 21, 2018 at 1:04 am

    I never realized how bad cotton is – when traveling! It stinks! If you must – wear it then throw it out!!



  45. Brittany Blue Quartz on June 21, 2018 at 1:08 am

    for females: cotton underwear is a MUST, (if you like lace, find something with a cotton lined crotch) other materials arent as soft and breathable and can lead to infection especially if youre hiking around, or being active!! avoid spandexey materials and NO thongs when youre being active (also just in general: never sleep in a thong, the spread of bacteria that happens there is atrocious) ladies undies take up less space anyways, ive found that i can fit like 6 pairs of underwear in the internal cellphone pocket of my Swiss backpack !! be safe out there, the last thing u want is to get a yeast infection on the road



  46. mark duncan on June 21, 2018 at 1:08 am

    Nonsense!!



  47. Tmk777 on June 21, 2018 at 1:09 am

    Lems shoes are not really barefoot. Very minimalist but I still feel that they have plenty of rubber protection. If you want barefoot boots that may not be good. For my purposes, they are a huge upgrade to regular footwear.



  48. First Last on June 21, 2018 at 1:12 am

    i recommend lg g6



  49. Haut Jour on June 21, 2018 at 1:13 am

    Great video 🙂



  50. Silver Eagle on June 21, 2018 at 1:14 am

    I really appreciate this video. Other channels do give you the impression that you have to have all sorts of fancy equipment. I’ve never had fancy things or expensive equipment, so for all I know, everything I have now is good enough. At least good enough to start out with, and then later my experience will hone my preferences. Instead of the other way around where people feel like they have to start out with name brand stuff and find out later how it doesn’t work. It’s just really nice to hear an experienced traveler saying, "What you have is good enough."
