Yeah it seems alot - but it's either in my truck, in my worktruck hung up behind my seat, or on my back/bike. I used to think it was a ton, but its very light, keeps the extra little things out of my pockets & carries all the other daily things I have always.

I know people who laugh but then I point out their heavier briefcases or courier bags. lol !

I hear you. I don't use the cuttables.. you can get like a twelve pack of mechanical Listo's and an extra pack of leads for like $10 from the factory. They're about $5 ea at any given store near you. Anyway.

nice link, that guy has some serious research into his gear.

I have some larger wheeled pelican stuff for the home kits, 3 day kits etc that I need to revamp.

Was looking for something to travel with and that could be used at work and hide some precautionary items etc.

Grease pencil hmmm

oh and coho, what do you use to boil the water in for your tea bags? Is there a pot/cup in the bag?

Note the choice of a Stainless Steel waterbottle instead of a Nalgene....

Everything has to serve more than one use (if possible)

BUT.... know how to make a hobo stove out of ANY metal tin / can.

Well, that's a fun little site.

Very thorough. Well thought and laid out.

Dood don't ride a KLR, though.

Thanks for the link!

ah, ok.

I was going with a metal cup/pot and water bottle that fits inside, I will use my small alcohol stove in the camping version of the kit perhaps

I am already looking at that cool nose hair trimmer getting old sucks!

The thing that makes that site like porn for me is how everything fits together. The Eagle Creek two sided cube and half cube look like they're made for that space in that pack.

That guy spent a lot of time figuring out exactly what and how it would fit. If he's anything like me, there's stuff he really wants/needs to take, but he couldn't make it fit perfectly, so it's not in there and he's waiting to run across the right item that will.

I almost impulsively buy Eagle Creek cubes, half cubes, small sacks, etc.

This weekend, I ran across an outfitter who had a whole box of that Eagle Creek Pack-It stuff that was 50% off. I think I bought a third of the box.

For a small kit you don't need it, anything that will burn will cook your food & water. Wood, rubber (piece of a tire), paper rolled up tight (burns nice and slow), oils, clothes, rags, anything really.

ugh. I am the same, but I am hindered by being of a slight KLR mentality at times.
