I stopped by REI yesterday for some last-minute purchases. I bought some water purifier tablets (just in case the filter breaks or fails), two more extra ultralight dry sacks (one to replace one of the not-as-light sacks I already had), and a ultralight compression sack to replace the one for my sleeping bag. I also got a lightweight wallet.
I also wound up doing a pretty significant reshuffling of the contents of my pack, and everything seems to fit a little better, and not be as lopsided.
- ultralight compression sack for sleeping bag
- compression dry sack for clothes
- orange ultralight dry sack for tent
- green dry sack for food
- blue ultralight dry sack for electronics
I decided not to use the green ultralight dry sack for my food back (despite it being slightly larger), because it's rather a lot more flimsy. I may consider making a run to REI tomorrow on the way to dinner with my family to see if they have a larger sack I can use for food. Also, I need to exchange the foldable water bottle I got. I just noticed that it has a scratch in it that doesn't bode well for long-term structural stability. :(
