My Minimal Travel Backpack Setup

I'm traveling to Japan for 2 weeks and didn't want to be slowed down by my usual roller luggage. So instead I'm trying to fit everything I need into a single backpack. It was a lot more challenging than I thought to keep it light and compact but it was a fun challenge. Here's what I ended up with: Backpack - Aer Travel Pack 1 https://www.aersf.com/travel-pack-00014 (There's also a newer v2 that looks more comfortable) IKEA Packing Cubes (Looks like they discontinued the ones I have, which is unfortunate they are great and cheap, not sure if the new versions are any good) T-Shirts: Uniqlo Supima https://bit.ly/2Pggy5v Uniqlo Heattech https://bit.
