Comprehensive Packing Lists

Anyone who has traveled great distances for long durations knows that every gram (or ounce) counts. Our packing list tool helps you track what you're packing, how much it weighs, whether an item is consumable or worn, and a lot more.

Modular Gear Inventory System

Each item you enter is added to your gear inventory. This allows you to reuse any item in any packing list you create. You can also add notes to your gear, such as purchase date or condition.
