2. Pack Light
Backpacking through Hawaii doesn’t require packing each and every little thing you’ll need to take on your trip. Many backpacking items – portable stoves, isobutane gas, snorkeling gear – have affordable price tags in Walmart and sports stores. When it comes to clothing, leave your cotton shirts at home and stick with polyester. You won’t need to bring too many clothes since you’re probably going to be sporting a bathing suit for most of your time there.
