Does this seem like too much luggage? Watch

    I am away for 6 days, on a field trip. I have a suitcase which is weighing around 12kg and a large rucksack which is pretty full too, around 5kg.

    As a bloke, depending on what the trip is for, I would pack the following for a 6 dayer:

    6 sets of undies + socks

    Washkit

    3 x tops (shirts/ tshirts)

    2 or 3 x trousers.

    A jumper

    1 or 2 pairs of shoes.

    All goes in a large-ish rucksack.

    EDIT: Of course iPod and things would just slot into the pockets of the rucksack.

    No- 12kg isn't too much for a week. you'll probably need to change clothes quite often on a field trip- so it sounds reasonable.
    Have fun!

    Again, as a bloke, I'm in France atm and by the time I go home it'll be ten days that I've been here. For those ten days I had a 9kg bag which included my Macbook and DSLR with a 200mm lens. Sixteen kg sounds like a hell of a lot to me, but there you go.

    I'd have thought that's fine. I easily fill 20kg when I go for two weeks, and my Mum takes stuff like towels and sun cream etc in her case so that's without those. Depends where you're going of course, but I can't see why it would be a problem. Have fun!

    That's sounds like a lot to me. What the hell are you bringing that weighs 17kg?

    That includes everything like towels and toiletries and hair straightener/dryer. Also shoes including wellies. I didn't even end up wearing some of the clothes, like jumpers. Some people actually had way more than me!
