Thread: day hike kit

    Thats the problem with watching kit videos, i always want to buy more but the best thing about going out with your gear is you soon learn what you really need/use and what you dont.

    What make of bag is that? It looks somewhat larger than the Snugpak Responsepak that I currently struggle with size wise. Also really don't want to fork out a small fortune for Maxpedition stuff.

    Plenty of OK quality chinese copies on a certain auction site. I have had a couple for 2 years now, and one have seen extensive use. No signs of it failing in any way so far...

    Depends on how you mean favourite? For comfort its got to the pocket rocket and brew kit, nothing better than getting it going to sit and take it all in if you ment kit as in what id choose out of all of it in the video.....think id have to say as long as I got shelter and a fire kit thats a good start...hope that answers it for you?? If not let me know, its great to share ideas etc

    It is just abit bigger than a snugpak (selling point for me) definitely worth the 10! It has the shoulder strap but also a belt strap that can be tucked away if you prefer to shoulder carry.
