15 boxers?

either go commando, that will save you weight or don't take so many and wash them.
so what else you taking thats pushing your weight to 20KG? buy a lighter suitcase
How long are you going for? 2 weeks?

If so.. are you really gonna change your shorts every 2 days? And 14 t-shirts - will you change them everyday without fail? Maybe you will, maybe not.

Everything else is pretty essential I guess.
remember you have 5kg cabin allowance too(maybe more depending on airline) so transfer some to the cabin bag?

people always take too much-remember egypt is ROASTING hot-you can easily wash shorts/tshirts in the shower/bath and hang them over the balcony to dry(will probs take about ten minutes lol)
how long are you there ? can you rinse the pants & socks ? Do you not need a cossie ? Trunks in the day mean less boxer use (maybe ?!?). Could you take a t shirts out & double up - failing all else - wear loads of the clothes - and take them off as soon as you get on the plane !
well i a going for 2 weeks and am a bit of a clean freak to be fair i suppose u could wash the stuff in the shower boxers are essential though lol my toiletries weigh 1 kg lol

Are you sure you're weighing it properly???
I cannot see how those clothes and 1kg of toiletries add up to 20kg unless, as sassie says, you have a really heavy case. What does your case weigh empty?
1 flip flop? Are you planning on hopping ... or do you only have one leg?

A well travelled friend of mine told me once to take the minimum clothing needed and buy as you need when u get there as its usually cheaper over seas and you won't go over the limit coming back!

all i can say is you must have bloody big pants
ARGH!! you're making me worried now OP i am also off the egypt soon and have a 20kg limit like you, if a bloke can't pack under the luggage allowance how am i going to manage it? lol
was planning on taking loads of shoes!! (on a cruise so dressing up at night )
Sounds like me when Im packing to go abroad. I usually pack two of everything if Im away for 2 weeks or more

Have decided to be brave this year, pack very lightly and going to buy my clothes there this time, going to Florida in a few weeks so am hoping that the clothes there are quite cheap.

Have a great time on your holiday op :thumbsup::)
depends where you go, i have gone on holiday with nothing but the clothes i was wearing, bought everything including bag while there
