Green Global Travel Packing Checklist: Photo & Video Gear

Our Travel Packing Checklist

GGT’s Gift Guide for Travelers

After three years of frequent travel, we’ve got packing down to a science. We NEVER check luggage, so everything we travel with has to fit into two carry-ons, a laptop bag and a backpack. From rolling up clothes tightly to packing clothes that can be easily hand-washed, we’ve learned a few tricks along the way.
