To All You Backpackers: How Small a Pack Is Too Small?

Jump to last reply

Going backpacking (via trains and hostels) for a little less than 2 weeks through Germany, Brussels, Salzburg, Amsterdam, and Prague in 2 weeks (August) and just ordered a backpack (a little late- oh well).

I wanted it on the small side and got a 36 L pack. I can return it and buy one in the store if this is too small but I was wondering if anyone could speak from experience. If I pack light, will 36 L be enough? Or did I have a little too much confidence in my packing abilities?

Just bringing a few days worth of clothing, rainjacket, change of shoes, and travel sized toiletries.

I thought it would be fine, but now that I'm searching through the internet again I'm second guessing myself. Am I overthinking this?
