    Yes, but @taminca you take really great pictures -- not just beautifully composed, but you really come up with great ideas of how to put things together in ways that work. These provide visual inspiration for other forum members who are trying to think about creative uses.

    10 pouches in a co-pilot! Doesn't that make it harder to find things? I totally understand pouch frenzy though and I had to scale back myself. I used to use several mini OPs, but that just made everything more complicated. I've since consolidated everything into a maxpedition micro organizer that I had lying around, but I'm considering getting a small double OP instead for ease of access. I think all my stuff should fit in the small: skeletool multitool, small flashlight, sharpie, lip balm, small baggie with meds, thumb drive, lighter.

    I like photo 10.

    I also have one of those coffee drippers. It works really well.
    Thanks taminca

    @taminca, thank you so much for this helpful—and fun—series of photos. I just placed an order for both a small and a medium Double OP, but after seeing your photos, I'm thinking maybe I should add about eight more of the mediums to my back order. As a tea drinker, I especially like #6. Can you tell me what brand immersion heater you use, and where you found it? I also need to keep my eye out for those disposable tea filter papers. Right now, if I'm traveling by car and have plenty of room, I've got a tea kit that I carry in a Travel Sack. It has a Bodum mini-electric kettle in it, but obviously even as much of a Targus/Hermione bag the Double OP may be, I'm not going to be able to squeeze a kettle in there; not even a mini one! So for those times when I don't have room to lug around the kettle, an immersion heater may be the way to go.

(This works much better with the 400d Dyneema varieties).
    I ran out of time this weekend, but wanted to also photograph the Medium DOP used in different TB bags. Will do so today or tomorrow. Thanks for the idea, @moriond!

    Thanks, @icebeng. It WAS very fun. I had to draw the line somewhere, though, and did not allow myself to go out and BUY things just so I could photograph them in the DOP

    Nope. I know EXACTLY where everything is since each pouch serves a different purpose

    Ditto! I was looking around the house for idea #10 when I saw my mini-stockpile of airplane booze. Hurray for those free drink coupons!

    Hi, Nancy. The T-Sac I bought on Amazon (Amazon.com: T-Sac Disposable Paper Filter Tea Bags, Size 2, 100-Count: Kitchen & Dining). As for the immersion heater, I do not recall what brand it is. I bought it a long time ago at my local travel store -- Holloway Travel Outfitters (in their own way, JUST as dangerous to my bank account as TB). They do list it on their website but not with a brand. The link is Voltage Valet Beverage Heater/Immersion Rod - PackingLight.com. It works well and does get the water to boiling but is SLOW.

    Thank you again: this time for going to the trouble of tracking down these links for me. Tea lovers, unite!

    I loved the FAK taminca put together so I made one of my own. It is still a work in progress but it feels like a good start.
