So the bags are both Carradice Camper Longflaps. On the rear I have my
sleeping bag stashed inside a waterproof compression bag made by Outdoor
Research. I was carrying a bulky digital SLR camera in my front bag. If I
wasn't carrying that, I could have fit all my gear inside these bags.
Rear bag keeps my 'home' and kitchen:
- Big Agnes Fly Creek UL2 Platinum tent. This is a small 2-person tent.
It's an amazing 1 person tent. My wife and I often use it together on
backpacking trips, which makes it pretty "cozy" inside. I removed the poles
from the tent bag and used the Carradice flap to hold them in place as
they're just a hair too long to fit inside the bag.
- Thermarest Neoair matress
- Mountain Equipment Co-op blow-up camping pillow
- GSI Dualist pot, with fuel cannister, bowl and coffee beans stuffed inside
- Porlex coffee grinder
- Mini pump
- Aeropress stuffed into the right side pocket, with coffee cup clipped to
- Left side pocket had my tools, spare tube/parts and Brooks rain cover
Front bag holds my clothes and most food:
- Rain pants and jacket
- Down jacket
- Two apples and a banana
- Bag of granola and dried fruit for breakfast
- Pad Thai ingredients - I modified this excellent recipe, it's my go-to
- Nikon Df in a zip-lock bag, wrapped up with the down jacket for padding
- An assortment of chocolate and snacks for riding
- Toilet paper and a bit of newspaper for starting a fire
- Pocket knife
- Dry pair of socks
- Toque for sleeping at night
- I left the side pockets pretty much empty as my bars are too narrow to
fit the bag with stuffed pockets. If I have dirt drops or albatross bars
on, it's no problem at all.
The rear bag was pretty full, but I didn't open up the 'long flap', so
there is room for quite a bit more. The front wasn't full, definitely could
have taken more stuff there.
I've also got a RandiJo bartender bag, which I keep my phone and wallet in,
as well as a few snacks. I'm running a SONdelux hub with a Sine Wave USB
charger, keeping my iPhone and Garmin fully charged. At night, I disconnect
the Sine Wave and use all available power for the eDeluxe light.
I'm carrying two regular sized Klean Kanteen bottles and one over-sized one
under the downtube. It was enough water for drinking all day and cooking
