The list below is what we used when packing for a 7 day hike on Corsica. Our objective was to bring everything we really needed, but limit the weight. We wanted to be self-supporting, not needing luggage transport.
We also wanted to pack as little as possible, so we could take it all on the airplane as cabin luggage. That way, you're very flexible and fast at airports.
When you really think about it, there are a lot of things you don't need. Why bring two sweaters, when you can wear only one at a time? Share your tooth paste, shampoo and shower gel. Use a small and light digital camera.
We managed to limit the weight to 10 kilos per person, including 3 liters of water during the hikes!
This is what each of us had in our back packs as personal items:
When we left home, we were wearing the following items:
Then we had a number of items that we shared:
We made sure that we each had room in our back packs for two 1.5 liter bottles. We bought the bottles just before we left for the first stage of the hike.
Note: since 2006, you can't take liquids in anything but minute quantaties in your cabin luggage.
