    Bushcraft definitions (humour)

    Options and ideas for big bag / small bag systems

    The Osprey Aether 70 has been my main large pack for the last 2-3 years which you can piggy back the smaller 13L Daylite pack to making an 80+ litre, also with the Aether you get a removable top lid pocket with its own stowaway waist belt.
