    Overnighter with the Daylight Backpack!

    I have to drive to my hometown today for a friends wedding and I'm staying the night before coming back tomorrow, so I thought that this would be a perfect opportunity to try out my new DLBP! I never usually pack this heavy for just an overnighter to my dad's house, but I wanted to try out all of my new TB items! Hehe!





    Charging gear went into my Aubergine Q-Kit.





    Running accessories (watch and headphones) went into my Steel Q-Kit.



    I packed a tank top and my swimming suit because I'll be spending a bit of time camping with my mother. These fit easily into the Steel PCSB.





    My running gear went into my size 4 Solar Stuff Sack.



    The Q-Kit with my running accessories fit perfectly on top of my clothes and between the shoes.



    Everything laid out and ready to be packed!

    Everything packed inside! I moved the Aubergine Q-Kit so you could see that I wedged my clear organizer cube with toiletries beside my running stuff.



    Here it is all in place.





    Here's the DLBP with my travel buddy. My best friend gave him to me and he likes to go on road trips!

    I want to "like" every single picture! But what I love the most is Quincy.
    my username, Rocks, is borrowed from my own travel buddy, who's a little rabbit. He's inconveniently clay, so needs some care and protection when traveling, but he's indispensable and a great listener. One of my new Q Kits is for him. :)

    A momentary derail: the cocoa and burnt orange look excellent together! Future cafe bag combo?!

    At the moment it's holding my work badge and my empty coffee cup. That one generally sits in the front seat to catch all of my bits and bobs.

    A Travel-Trai in the car. That is a good idea.

    Thanks for posting! I especially liked your approach to packing running gear - that's something I like to segregate from my other gear and I hadn't thought of using my stuff sack for this. I will give it a try.

    Also great to see the Q-kits next to the 3D cube for size comparison. :)

    Awesome post, @Moosezilla! I wish I could be such an efficient packer. Even for an overnighter, I would need at least an S19 :)

    Looking back, I could have gotten by without packing anything since I brought laundry home!

    My immediate thought also - i guess they are both external weight fabrics so it won't happen but cocoa with orange lining would be nice.

    I missed out on a cocoa/cayenne bag :(
    List under construction ....

    I was going to say there used to be a Cocoa/Cayeene Cafe bag option, and I thought I saw an eBay listing (in the U.S.) for a second generation Ristretto for 11" MacBook Air in Cocoa/Cayenne Cordura just yesterday,but I can't find it now (it incorrectly listed the interior color as "red").

    Sorry! A little more derailing here.
    That makes me think of M&Ms, the ones with the orange shells anyways lol
    And @ceepee just posted orangey pics of her visit to an M&Ms store, such a bag would have been perfect for the visit! ^.^
