    Packing the Mini Yeoman Duffel for a weekend trip

    I’ve been test packing my mini YD as promised, here are the pictures. This is what I would wear and take for a weekend away if I had some kind of occasion coming up (a birthday celebration or something similar). I always pick the outfit I want to wear for something specific (party, hiking, sight seeing) and build everything else around that.

    This was the outfit I picked for my imaginary birthday celebration:

    This means I would be wearing the skirt the whole weekend and just go with a different top and shoes to make it weather and travel appropriate:

    The socks are perfect for having warm and comfortable feet in my boots. Because my outerwear would need to work for the dressy occasion I would go with my wool coat for outerwear (instead of a parka or something like that):

    I picked my SCB as an additional bag to the YD and went with the Aubergine because I liked it best with all the clothing I picked:

    And here are pictures how I packed the Mini Yeoman Duffel:

    The details:
    • the black slippers in a Sea to Summit stuff bag in XS (shoe size 38)
    • Q-Kit in Steel with the charger for my smartphone
    • Aeronaut 45 Small Laundry Cube holding the dressy top and my black cardigan
    • Aeronaut 30 Small Laundry Cube holding 2x underpants, one bra, 2x tights, an Icebreaker camisole, and merino leggings and a t-shirt to sleep in
    • Steel Halcyon Deluxe Spiff Kit with the usual stuff


    The packing cubes in this combination aren’t the best size for the YD, but they work because everything’s underpacked. And these are the ones I already had available because I normally use them in my RB36. There was still room in the YD, it was by no means stuffed. You can get quite a lot in there! It’s definitely big enough for a weekend trip, especially if you carry another bag for your personal stuff. If I had wanted to take my camera, I would have probably gone for my DLBP with a Travel Cubelet inside (for the imaginary party).

    Here’s the content of my SCB:

    The black super mini GWOP holds my headphones.

    I hope this is helpful for someone considering the Mini Yeoman Duffel!
