I know that this must seem like a huge amount of things to carry but everything is very organized and in its place. At any given moment I can grab my backpack and go. I don't like to try and decide ahead of time what I may need because I will always forget something. The backpack is durable and very comfortable, I can go the entire day without having my back hurt. Comfort and organization are the two big things for me so it works out well. And lastly, something I learned years ago in my "scout mommy" days,
