This is my backpack that i have carried around for the last 6 months. i am already missing the simplicity of having just one container of belongings. the bag is from an army surplus store i got it around 10 years ago went i went on a greyhound tour of oz. The size and weight have not been a problem whilst walking about, but i will try to reduce the weight and size next year. The 2 pockets on each side hold my water and food whilst the front one has my tarp. The main volume holds my sleep roll in one large drysack along with a bag of spoons, a bag containing my tools, and a waterproof bag with bits and pieces in.
