Camino Packing List

This is what I brought on my June-July 2014 Camino. My pack was only 24 liters, which is very small, but it worked for me, fit great, and didn’t give my back any pain. I was able to carry all of this and some food, though I needed to pack strategically and often the bag was stuffed as full as I could get it. A little more room would have been nice.

Here is a link to a post about some things I would do differently when packing for my next Camino.
