    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!

    :D

    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

    some nice spendy items, but most of them seem to make sense for his trip.

    I am already looking at that cool nose hair trimmer :poser 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. :twitch

    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.

    bags are an obsession, I need to put some of my camera bags in the FM.
    I had a spree of buying them online, now I won't unless I see one in person first or see a really detailed review.


    Hey coho you seen this :wink:

    I think this may be better in shiny things now :D

    ended up with this one after much packing and unpacking of stuff I brought with me to the store :D

    [​IMG]

    Fits my IBM thinkpad (x200) no problem and more stuff than I thought of could be crammed into it.
    Lots of good attachment points etc. Need to figure out to pack it properly though if it is going to be a work and 'get home bag" :D

    There's usually about 30 of these somewhere in the car along with some form of sharp object and a pair of visegrips. There's also usually a 1/2 case of bottled water and numerous 1/2 empty bottles of mountain dew or gatorade. Usually a rain coat, a sweatshirt, and boots in there too.

    Not sure why, but it turns out I need one of those pocket bars, a grappeling hook, and a couple of other things from that site.

    Jerk.

    The only thing they don't sell is the Batman mask to go with all that stuff.
