How I pack in carry-on for 1-2 weeks (Productive! Show Video #32)

You can travel with only a carry-on luggage for a week and even 2-week long business trips. In this episode I'm showing you step by step how to prepare a packing list, what you need and how to pack it into one carry-on (and it only weights 10kg!):

Just curious... why the gloves?

I've used gloves for fun - as a very "precise" thing to do to pack my bag I wanted to give it a "laboratory" feel to it... and also to avoid contact with my greasy hands :-) Why not? :-)

As someone that has often packed like I was moving to my destination I found this incredibly interesting and informative. I think it's a leap of faith for those of us who overpack to just pack the things we need but having a well thought out list like you do is obviously a core part of the packing process.

Thanks for sharing the video and the Public Nozbe list.

I've also had this problem of packing too many things and now I'm happy to have a system to use only one carry-on for my travels. So light, so easy. Good luck Kevin!

What is the light backpack you are packing in the video?

It is Samsonite B-lite bag 55cm. It is really good, sturdy and ultra-light.

Thanks, but I was actually asking about the smaller black bag/bacpack you pack inside the Samsonite. (the Samsonite looks great too, but not sure if they sell it here in the US)

The backpack I pack inside the carry-on bag is a simple 200g light thing I got in Decathlon sports-stores. It costs 5 EUR in Europe. It's really good and handy.
