After I got back from my Asia travels, I got a chance to reflect on my original RTW packing list and decide how to adjust it for my upcoming South America travels.
The reflections I had include:

Lockable backpacks are useful when lockers are small or non-existent
Dry barrel’s offer so much more than rain covers
Dry sacks and packing separators speed up the check in/out part of travel
Leave space in your main pack to buy clothes and repack with ease
Don’t neglect the clothes you really love
Go plain colours on tops or bottoms but not both or neither
