    Wet rainy day here today. Figured I'd start a thread inspired by the various 'Burning House' and 'Whats in your bag' pics on the web.

    So heres my bag (a 22ltr Macpac Kahu) -

    I use it 90% of the time I'm out and about - with all the stuff in it I get a couple of litres 'spare' for groceries or purchases.

    Contents -

    Olympus E-PM1 + 20mm f1.7 Panasonic + Aki Asahi skin + home-made para-cord strap

    Olympus OM1 + Zuiko 28mm f3.5 + camera strap made from a kimono

    Olympus Zuiko 45mm f1.8 m43 lens

    Olympus mju II 35mm point & shoot

    Solar charger/torch




    Snack bars

    Work phone + Personal phone

    Keys including mini-leatherman, peanut lighter, mini-pry-bar, LED torch

    Merino 280 long-sleeve top (sometimes substituted with a small raincoat depending on the weather)

    Bag works well, I sometimes get annoyed by the internal webbing catching or preventing things from dropping straight-in but it keeps things tidy and fits snuggly into my back. Its big enough that I can drop in a Nat Geo Explorer bag to keep the cameras secure and dry while having space left over for other day to day items.

    So - lets see your bags (preferably not under your eyes ;-) . . .
