This is a bulky pack and holds everything I need for a full day hike or even an overnighter.I carry enough items for two people to stay in the outdoors overnight. I carry 2-Emergency ponchos for rain or use as a drop cloth for a bottom of a shelter. I carry 2-5'x7' reflective on one side tarps. You can roll them up so small they fit in the water bottle holders. I carry tent stakes made from wooden chop sticks. I have a decent size first aid kit, A few lengths of 550 para cord. I carry a compact gas stove and the fuel canister in a bag that fits inside. I have a 8oz cooking container for boiling water. I carry food in a jacket pocket or in a separate container along with water bottles.I have a fire starting kit in the front soft pouch along the length of the belt. I carry a fishing kit hooks line sinkers on the other pouch along the belt on the other side. This is a very nice pack I take it everywhere I go if its a few hours or overnight. It fits comfortable and I highly recommend it.One flaw I found was the water bottles are not very good. If you screw the lids on to tight you will find that they pop loose at the screw on part of the neck. I have used my own water bottles, I usually will take a stainless steel container in one pouch and put my tarp in the other. The stainless steel container can be used to boil water in if I need it. Any questions feel free to contact me here.
