Here are some links to all the stuff I’m bringing on the Camino.
I didn’t mention these in my video, but gel toe caps are fantastic!
The place where I bought my sleeping bag:
I bought my backpack at REI. It feels perfect on my back.
Sock liners (don´t need)
Outdoor research Seattle sun / rain sombrero (this is an amazing hat! Kept my head very dry, but can be too warm in summer.)
Solar Charger (you don´t need this.)
Pack liner (you can also use a garbage bag)
Small day pack (a grocery bag will work just fine.)
Blister stuff (I never used it.)
Backpackers panties (great undies!)
My official ultra light packing list for the Camino De Santiago:
First Aid kit
Moleskin, bandage tape, small scissors, etc..
Toe gel tips
Knee brace (caused me a heat rash.)
2 pair undies
2 pair 1000 mile socks
2 liner socks
Button down shirt (lightweight)
Long sleeve purple shirt
Bathing suit (don´t need.)
Rain jacket (gortex!)
Itinerary / passport / I.D / Credit card (bring two credit cards in case one does not work.)
Journal / pen
Pack liner (in lieu of pack cover.)
Secret travel pouch
Travel backpack for groceries / airplane ride (don´t need.)
3 mesh bags for loose items
Drain plug (no)
Head lamp (no need)

Rock from home
Iphone / earphones / charger / solar charger (no need)
Shampoo / soap / detergent bars
Comb / mirror
Toilet paper in ziplock
Deodorant (no dispenser)
Toothbrush / paste
Spanish cheat sheet (lighter than a book)
I just finished the Camino and will like to update my ultra light packing list.
You don´t actually need a bathing suit. It´s Europe! Luckily I decided to leave mine at home.
You don´t need liner socks when wearing 1000 mile socks. Bringing those toe socks turned out to be extra weight.
You don´t need a solar charger while on the Camino. I haven´t used mine once. There are outlets everywhere.
You don´t need to bring a big bulky headlamp. A small keychain light will do just fine, or your cell phone.
You don´t need that little travel pouch. A grocery bag will work just fine (and it´s lighter).
You don´t need a drain plug.
I only used the medical tape, small scissors and bacitracin in my med kit. The rest of it was extra weight. There are tons of pharmacies along the way if you find that you do need something.
Everything else on the list I recommend. A very strong piece of advice for you is to bring a warm rain jacket. Don´t go cheap like I did, you will be soaked! Gortex is the way to go.
