Pro Packer Essential Backpacking Kit

Date added: Tuesday 24th January 2017

Developed by experienced backpacker and traveller, Ian Lowe, Pro Packer Essential Backpacking Kit is a brand new product, which aims to provide first-time travellers with everything they need for their big trip.


The kit offers a thoughtful solution for those preparing to travel and features 19 must-have utility and safety items that regularly appear on packing lists. All items are acquired by the Pro Packer team and are shipped together in a branded box at one price (£54.99 in January only with free standard shipping), saving the user time and money.

The 19 items are: combination padlock; universal travel adaptor; large quick-drying towel; 100ml DEET mosquito repellent; inflatable neck pillow; plastic clip-together cutlery set; HSE compliant first aid kit; headphone splitter; ear plugs; 10m duct tape; LED magnetic torch with hook (batteries not included); sleeping bag liner; mosquito plug (including 10 tablets); money belt; 100ml antibacterial hand gel; re-usable poncho; folding travel mirror; sewing kit; and Pro Packer notebook & pen.

Ian Lowe, founder and director of Pro Packer Ltd, said: “I have backpacked for many years and I have made packing errors. I have taken too much and I have taken too little. I have overpaid for essential items and I have been unable to get certain essential items whilst on the road.

“All of the items included in the Pro Packer Essential Backpacking Kit have been selected based on my experience. The kit contains high quality, market-leading products, which are durable, lightweight and compact – everything I wished I’d taken with me on my first big overseas trip.

“Organising a big backpacking trip can be daunting. People often find themselves working long hours to save money and then have to worry about injections, insurance, visas, accommodation and the fluctuating prices of flights. I want to help take away at least part of the burden by providing a one-click solution that will save backpackers time, money and hassle before they set off on the trip of a lifetime.”

About Ian Lowe and Pro Packer Ltd

Ian caught the travel bug at 21 when he finished university in Liverpool and travelled to Australia and New Zealand for several months. He returned to the UK and worked to travel as much as possible, backpacking in short bursts through Canada, Thailand, Laos, India, the Philippines, South America and Bali.

Ian knows that deciding what to take on a backpacking trip is one of the biggest dilemmas a backpacker will face before their adventure begins. He came up with the idea for an essential backpacking kit and thought carefully about what to include, selecting 19 quality items, which are offered together at a competitive price.
