  1. Hi Goats!
    Love this overview of packing your bags!

    Of course, Nick, I’m especially jealous of your new GoPro Gimble! Very cool!
    We’re at Rosscos’ Packpacker Hostel in San Cristobal now for a few days.

    Hope to see you guys soon!

    1. Awesome! Thanks for the comment Nadine 🙂

      We’re at the lake (as you know) but are thinking of moving on, long story. But probably coming back here after we move on! haha. It’s all up in the air!


  2. So much … yet so little !
    The tech bag looked the heaviest, the necessity of all the equipment, chargers and cords that make for Super GoatLife TV and articles,
    And helps keep the Goats On The Road !
    Another great informative and light-hearted video !
    Have a Joyous Journey ! 🙂

    1. They are essential!

      The brand is Eagle Creek, but there are various brands you could go for. We got them at an outdoor store in Canada, but you could order them online on Amazon I’m sure or find them at any outdoor shop.

      Cheers 🙂

    2. There are different brands. They are called “Packing Cubes” for bag organization. I bought the brand ebags from their website. If you sign up for the website email alerts you get coupons and find out about sales.

      A plus when you have packing cubes is clearing customs is a breeze.

  3. Really useful video guys – leaving for SE Asia on our RTW trip in next few days and you’ve convinced us to order some of those mesh bags. One question though – do you have any tips on keeping expensive electronic equipment secure while travelling?

    1. Hey Ian,
      We’re glad the video helped, it’s amazing how much stuff can be packed into such a small space. We don’t do anything in particular to keep our gear safe. We lock it in our backpacks when we leave the room, we only bring it out to a cafe if we know the city is safe. We only use our cameras around town if it’s safe and we don’t bring our gear out at night.

      Happy travels!
