Current Daypack Setup, Thoughts, Suggestions?

Military Surplus Patrol Pack

Having a good daypack packed and ready to go can save a lot of time and frustration.  Rather than grabbing a backpack and cramming gear in it in an impromptu manner, I like to have a daypack with exactly the type of gear I usually need on a day hike.  Knowing what to bring in a daypack comes from experience.  Sure we could look up some youtube videos, but what someone brings on their hikes may not be well suited for your situation.  For example, someone in a desert may bring a lot of water, while someone who hikes around creeks and streams may need more mosquito repellent than other locations.

In this article we are going to cover my current daypack setup and how it has changed over the years.

The backpack itself is a military surplus patrol pack bought off Ebay.  This backpack has MOLLE webbing, a large main compartment and a smaller outer pouch.  Heavy and bulky gear go in the main compartment to move weight closer to your body, while lighter gear goes in the outer pouch.
