Two bags anxiety
« on: 08:54:23, 01/12/19 »
Hi.


My current gear is:


Osprey Hikelite 18 - For hydration pack, first aid, spare clothes
Maxpedition Fatboy versipack - For my GPS, camera, leatherman etc.


I have used this gear set up on two day hikes and it was fine.


But I am worried I am carrying too much. What do you think?


I got the fatboy as it seemed a good solution to keep those items I need quickly without having to stop and take off my pack.

Seems fine to me. A good solution if you need easy access to your camera.

If you're happy, why not; everyone has their own way  O0


I guess I'm much more traditional in that I use one rucksack (38ltr) and everything is in there. I don't carry a camera or a GPS, my phone can do both if I want it to but I very rarely bother


There's no right or wrong really  ;)

Thanks for calming me chaps.


Another thing - I got the fatboy because during winter I wear waterproof overtrousers. These do not have a belt or pockets hence the need for the extra bag.
