OMM Chest pack.4.5 L with map pouch.Tried it today ; happy with it.Carried my Garmin,  my gps (Viewranger) dedicated simless phone,  small camera , a few antistatic wipes and a few snack bars, with space for the tablets I musg carry. Space behind zip compartment for maps but think they need to be in a zip lock were I to keep them in there because that bit is open (ish) to the elements  and I think if the wind and rain were coming straight  at me they would get soaked.
Happy chappy, does what I want  it to.
Too little, too late, too bad......

Walking trousers for 24.99. They arrived today, they fit well, have stretch panels, good pockets. The material, though light weight, feels tough. First time I've ordered from Decathlon and I'm impressed. Judging by the numbers of hikers I've seen on my foreign travels this seems to be a very popular brand, they have the Quechua brand in  their range.
I make this comparison with the gear I have from ME, Paramo, Montane, etc, so it's an informed comment, although how the trousers will perform in the field is another matter.

Cheapo thin pair of gloves from Poundland - cost 2. Not a bad lightweight glove for day to day use.

Mmm, Pound land? ??I suppose that would be one pound per glove.
