It might go without saying that I stand behind my gear, but it’s worth restating now and again. During five nights in the boreal back country, I relied not just on my @meandering_maker
pack but a handful of pouches and bags to keep things organized and protected, from my fire kit to electronics to cordage and tools. Nothing just lays loose in my pack - it has to be compartmentalized and in the same place every time or I’ll lose track of it or worse, leave it behind. Having multiple sizes made it easy to categorize gear and to put it in the right place and the right order in my pack so that quick-need gear like my head lamp or tent stakes were right on top while just-in-case kit like extra batteries and backup fire options were further down where I could get them if I needed them in a pinch but were lower in priority for the most part. And because all my pouches are made of multiple layers of waxed canvas, I was confident that even a heavy dousing of lake water or wet weather would have a hard time getting through.
. . .
It’s also very worth noting, however, that I relied heavily on two @foxlite_gear
possibles pouches for this trip, especially the bright orange one which I kept vitals like medication and reading glasses in. Cheryl’s pouches are almost literally weightless yet strong as hell, yet thin enough that they conform easily to whatever you put in them making it easy to squish the pouch down in between other gear in your pack. Perfect for things you want to keep protected and safe in the core of your pack. Field tested and highly recommended! Plus Cheryl is basically the nicest person on the internet so go give her a like and check out her Etsy shop ☝️
