If you're looking for a way to save size in your backpack, I highly recommend you learn how to do the military shirt roll for T-shirts and clothing.

By utilizing this method, it will help to reduce the packing size of your pack freeing up more room for those precious treasures you may pick up while on the road.

Here are the eight steps to the Military shirt roll.

Make a small 2-inch fold on the bottom of the shirt.

Step five:

Start rolling from the top of the shirt down towards that 2-inch fold at the bottom.

Step six:

Stop about an inch away from where you made that to enfold when you get to the bottom.

Step seven:

Reach in and pull out the bottom, making a small pocket than use that pocket to wrap over the burrito you made. It should be almost as if the bottom of the shirt is eating the top part.
