When it comes time to head out to the woods, I usually take a few minutes to think about what I’am going to be doing and what kind of gear I need. If I’am going on a simple day hike, I might bring my Maxpedition Falcon-II Pygmy, if its an overnight trip I might bring the Vulture-II and if its a short trip or hunting trip I’ll bring the Maxpedition Noatak.
Lets start with the Maxpedition Falcon-II Pygmy – which is my favorite dayhike / warm weather overnight bag. Even though the Falcon-II Pygmy has capacity of only 1,400 cubic inches, for you ultralight backpackers out there that should be plenty of room.
Some of the stuff that I took on my last hiking trip with my son and nephew:
2 – 32 ounce water bottles
