    ....the 10 Gallons is in multiple places? Each Roto-Pax is 2 Gal. Left front tube has 30 oz. MSR can, each rear tube has 50oz. MSR can. If my math is correct it's 3 oz over 10 Gallons! Just made it! BTW, right front tube has a fire extinguisher.....just in case!

    I might look overloaded but if you exclude the cooler all the other bags and their contents was 56 pounds, it's nice to have some room and not unpack 6 things to get at another.

    Looking at the last 30m of the trail you left, I would say. MOAR POWAAAAR.

    Another trick I use is I have an EMPTY large wolfman rollie bag mounted on my bike when loaded.

    During the day if I want to take off a layer I have a waterproof place to do it.
    At the end of the day if I want to grab some food or some beer at a store I have a place to put it while we head out to camp.
    After camping and I need to pack my trash out.. I have a place for it to go where I won't lose it.

    Works awesome, weighs nothing. Zero downside.
