Overnight kit

Reworked the overnight bag to a light, grab-n-go sub-load to toss into a bag if/when needed. Contained in an Eagle Creek Pack-It Cube:

T-shirt and skivvies, ranger rolled for compactness
Merino wool hiking socks
Gym shorts
Toiletry kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, floss

Simple, practical and inexpensive to throw together...clothes you've got lying around. Just pick 'em out and set 'em aside.

    The Eagle Creek Pack-it Cubes are great. My wife and I each have one that we use for overnight and weekend trips. They can surprisingly hold a bunch of clothes, as I can usually cram about 3 days worth of summertime clothes in mine...my wife can only get about 1-2 days worth of clothes in hers though. Go figure.

    I also like the idea of having pre-packed, interchangeable subloads. I travel a bunch for work and leisure and keep a fully stocked toiletry kit and first aid kit in my regular travel bag (Kelty Map 3500). With the pack-it cubes, we can quickly pack and be on our way. If it is a longer trip, I can easily move the toiletry and first aid kits to a different bag. Check out the Ebags brand flat toiletry kit...it is a very functional piece of travel gear.
