i'm finally ready to order.
getting a backpack for all my belongings, use it as carry on for flying, going hiking, daypack, university, just one backpack for everything as detailed here.
that already costs me $439 shipping included. it is quite hefty, but i'm willing to invest that.
i thought about getting multiple packing cubes, but they are not so cheap and having one bigger one, that can work as small backpack for shopping is super useful, plus i'm planning on using the modular pockets as cubes, if i don't need them outside as extra volume. that should work.
i'd be super if you could weigh in and tell my if your experience would make you suggest some tweaking to this list, as i'm outside the US, i kind of have to get it right the first time.
