Ninja Packing Tips: Pack for two weeks in a 30L backpack. This specific trip was to Europe in the fall, which means cold weather clothing. Find out how to minimize your packing, select just the right combination of clothes without bringing items you don't need, and of course, how to choose the perfect shoes to take with you.

I can't prove it, but I'm pretty sure this thing is magic. It's the most comfortable backpacking sleep pad I've ever used by a tremendous margin. It's two and a half inches thick, it has an R-value of 4.9 (which means it provides incredible insulation), and weighs only 19 ounces. Inside, over a hundred triangular barriers reflect heat back to your body, with no bulky padding added, so it packs down to almost the size of a Nalgene bottle.
