Interested to hear what people have found success with in regard to best ways to pack their packs? Especially considering packing for:
- Optimal loading
- Ease of Access When Hiking / Convenience
- Storing Things Internally vs Externally
- Different Trip Types
- Weight Savings
- Dry vs Wet Items
- Durability / Lifespan of Gear
For example, one thing I have been looking into is the best way to pack a non-whitewater PFD. I have previously been hanging it externally, but have seen people pack them internally or strap them around the top of their packs?
Interested to hear others thoughts?
