3 days mean 2 nights, 2breakfast and dinner 1 lunch maximum. I think that the sleeping bag may be the answer, smallest downbags some people take are tiny, but accordingly cool, so sleep in your coat and trousers. Smallest tents are a frame tarps put up with trekking poles. Not much cooking stuff, fuel or pans. No spare clothes. Freeze dried food and little of it. If you want to go like that thats fine.Who on here can get a Sleeping Bag, Bivvi Bag, Rollmat, Basha (pegs bungees paracord) Cooking Equipment, 3 days of Rations and Brew Kit, Waterbottles, Water Purification, Spair Clothes, a Waterproof Jacket, Fleece... (and all the other small odds and sods like a Torch, Fire Lighting Kit, First Aid Kit, Knife, Saw, Radio. etc etc
Into a 30L bag ?
In the Army I had to struggle getting everything into 100L'
The Karrimor SF Sabre 45 might work for your three-day forays: good capacity, well-made, not too pricey and, when you want to head out for longer or in winter, easily extendable with a couple of side pockets.Every now and then I keep looking at the RM leaf cutter pack. It really looks like the perfect pack (for me), but the price is too much right now.

I've got a Sabre 45 with the army side pouches as well, which make it a brilliant 65ltr pack. As I mentioned in my earlier post, I use it for winter in the mountains or trips over a week long. It's a really good pack.The Karrimor SF Sabre 45 might work for your three-day forays: good capacity, well-made, not too pricey and, when you want to head out for longer or in winter, easily extendable with a couple of side pockets.
