Packing list for cold weather with eco-friendly toiletries (PLUS a free printable). See how to pack for travel to cold-weather destinations easily with a carry-on bag.

If you’re like me, the idea of packing for a cold-weather trip can be overwhelming. It’s hard to know how many layers to take. Quite often people overpack, not realizing that you don’t sweat as much in cold weather, and clothing items can be worn multiple times.

Well, now you don’t need to worry because I have done all the hard work for you! I’m sharing the packing list that I used to visit Alaska in October with temperatures as low as -17C (0F) and again in Tallinn, Estonia. These items will fit into a carry-on bag (one per person) and provide enough clothing to last 6 days without washing.

In this article you will find:

  • Free printable packing list for cold weather
  • Winter packing list for him
  • Winter packing list for her
  • Skiing and snowboarding packing list (add-on)
