Nothing really exciting, but this is the first item I bought exclusively for my upcoming RTW trip.
I cut my own hair every 2-3 weeks, and while I could just go to different barbers around the world during the trip, I think it’ll be safer and cheaper to do it myself. For years I’ve been using a heavy Wahl hair clipper, but I was looking for something smaller and lighter to carry in a backpack.
I ordered the Phillips Norelco Kid’s Hair Clipper online and it arrived a few days ago. I’m very surprised and happy at how small and light it is. It only has a combined weight of 6.4 oz (181 g). 4.4 oz (124 g) for the unit, and 2 oz (57 g) for the charger. It has a battery and can work with or without the charger attached, and comes with 2 adjustable lock-in combs, but I really only need to bring the shorter one with me.
