Thanks! 20+ years of carrying stuff and you hope to get it right. I don't mind at all. But it might be easier with pictures. I just tried to list it, and got tired. I'll snap some pics. Your right, it is a work in progress(and a fun hobby). I have downsized, upsized, and back again. I think, and just my opinion, my daily snivel gear should fit in 1000-1500 cubic inches. I have had bigger bags, and smaller bags, but the E&E is just right. Almost everything inside the bag can be attached to the outside of the bag if needed. Then I can carry 1000 cubic inches of whatever. Right now my E&E rides in my Camelbak Talon. I am thinking of adding a brick or two, just to build up strength. I can always drop the bricks. Let me snap some pics of the stuff in the pouches, and I'll go post that in the other thread. Good question. I don't know. I could probably look up each pouch and have a good guess. Its not too bad for a daily carry bag.
