Ultimate Travel Packing List for Backpacking, Domestic, and International Travel

Things for travel on wooden table

It’s hard not to over- or under-pack. I’ve found that when I travel via car I over-pack. Then when I fly, I under-pack because I don’t like feeling bogged down by my belongings. There has to be something in between, with a focus on essentials you might need, and wouldn’t want to be stuck without. I’ve spent months thinking about this travel packing list and finding all American made traveling essentials that you’d need for any type of travel you might be doing. You’ll be surprised that everything you need is available and made right here in the USA.

Here’s our Ultimate Travel Packing List for Backpacking, Domestic, International, and RV Travel with all American made products you’ll need for travel. Hopefully you can use this list to serve as a reference for your future travel adventures.
