After packing, un-packing, re-packing, and probably going through those motions over and over. I have stopped. Satisfied with the outcome of how I packed and what I packed. Overall, maybe a touch over-packed? But whose to say, right? We are are individual people with individual needs. I did get everything neatly into my packs, with the addition of a personal bag for the plane. And I stayed within my weight and dimension requirements. So, over-packed? No, I am under my limits!
