@Darleen Kimberly How isn't it? He's recommended products that he intends to keep for a long period of time and recommends them in that context. He's not saying "buy this because I own it" , he's saying "I like and use this product, please learn about how I pack" . He's not advertising the bag out of gaining money, but because he likes the bag - no fault from anyone's end but your perception.

Finally I realized how I actually am a extreme minimalist 🤣
I carry only 2 t-shirts, 1 jean pant, facial cleanser, toothbrush & phone charger in my backpack.

I have a very simple way of packing for travel:
1. Put on shoes.
2. Tie shoes.

I miss packing my bags even though I don't go on a trip that much. It's just the idea of not getting out is what makes me want to pack and go out.

I used to travel often at short notice. My work bag was only luggage, a carry on with a satchel I used for business meetings. I had 1 suit with 3 shirts I could launder / iron with a few ties. I kept some casual clothes to lounge around my hotel room with a pair of slip on shoes. If I take a laptop, all my chargers are in my work bag as I breeze through security. Socks & underwear can be laundered in your hotel room for free.

although i don't identify with minimalism anymore i've been watchin your videos forever, and i think you're great! i do wonder though why 98% of the minimalists i have known in my life/watched online only wear black and grey and white and dark... charcoal and off white hahah

The main thing you're missing is compression, you could get this down to 1/3 the size with a compression sack, then go back to 1 carryon backpack instead of 2 bags. I've NEVER had creasing issues apart form with smart collared shirts, which I don't compress.
Why not just leave coffee making stuff at your parents place? (you could even leave an ELECTRIC grinder).
You wash your shorts after every work out session? Seems a little excessive, how much do your thighs really sweat?!
Also headphones. Use Airpods Pro. Just as good noise cancelling but 1% the size. You can leave them in the tiny pocket in your pants 24/7 too so you always have them, and save a TON of bag space.
1 bag is always better, a compression sack makes that possible. The one bag on top of the wheeled case has to be the worst travel anti-pattern out there. It's a nightmare, as soon as your case tips it goes off axis, stairs, off axis. Just awful.
1 messenger (Mission Workshop Rummy) or backpack carryon under seat in front. Next level.
On laundry, you can handwash very easily in a compression sack too just using shower gel, takes no time, guarantees nobody will ruin your clothes, it's free and fast.

Hey Matt, thanks for sharing your minimalistic thoughts. I am a flight attendant and film student and made a video about packing less and less - while conforming the airline rules. I am happy if you have a look

You could take three pairs of underpants if you used merino underpants. Triple Aught Design Commandos are awesome. Never smell and can be washed in the shower and dry quickly.

So you can really bring a suitcase and a backpack for carry-on in the states? I got no problem for a 20L backpack (sometimes 30L) and suitcase in Asia and Canada, but AA turned me back at the gate said I can’t not bring that suitcase on because my backpack is not small enough to put under the seat??? Mine was even smaller than this peakdesign backpack tho…. and after I gave them my suitcase, the guy who sat 2 rows behind me had a suitcase and an around 40L Swiss highschool backpack?, and he put both of them overhead!!??? I was like wtf, think asian is easier to say yes? 
Anyway, another great video Matt!!!

If you were travelling on a low-cost airline in Europe, you'd need to check that roll-on bag. One carry-on only. I like your backpack. Thx for link.

So I guess... packing if you're going to only a warm climate and don't need to conduct any business? T-shirt every day doesn't work for like 95% of people.

I believe minimalism is all about compromising on what you consider to be the most essential items you need. So you could say it's a matter of minimalism vs functionality. Depending on the situation and what you absolutely need can determine on how it can ease up your daily life. Because let's face it. It'd suck if you don't have the items you need, just because you wanted to keep your daily life as decluttered as possible and that in itself pretty much destroys the purpose of minimalism. Because the main aspect is to have it make your life as easy and simply as possible for you to focus on the things you want the most on. I'm no minimalist myself, but I am trying to declutter my daily life as much possible for things I either don't need or haven't used in a very long time.
Sorry for the novel writing on the comment section. I figure I might as well write my entire statement rather writing something that could risk being too abstract.
tl; dr: Minimalism vs functionality. Having some extra items better than having none for the utmost convenience in your daily life.

I don't know how serious he was about the minimalism thing(the pakt bag video was peppered with jokes like one i loved about packing that way being for serial killers) but it is funny watching him having to walk it all back in this video. Let this be a lesson to you kids, its probably best to keep your lifestyle philosophies to yourself.

Peak Design gang! Best backpack ever, has lasted me for three years now (for school, urban commuting, and everday stuff), totally worth the investment (I have 30 L), and get the charcoal version because it tends to hide any battle scars.

Great video Matt. I am a big fan of your minimalism videos. They have been very helpful. This year while going to Paris to deliver a TEDx Talk the airline misplaced my bag. It was quite a turning point in my life because in those few days I realized how little we need in order to live. I delivered the talk in the same hoodie and jeans because that's all I had. That changed the context of the talk and made it more relevant because I was talking about Sustainability and minimalism was great to start with. When I came back to my home in Mumbai I got rid of more than 80% stuff that I had at my house. I have learned most things we buy on a day-to-day basis are not used too often and I have started saving a lot of money. If you like, here is the link to the talk-

I have a backpack for weekend trips that splits in half like a suitcase and has three big compartments. One of them is accessible from the outside as well as the inside. That way I don’t have to dive for items at the bottom like in a traditional backpack because every part is completely accessible.
