Well for I have a ME Dreamcatcher 750, bit big but a true winter to summer bag (Sleepzone 10 to -12°C, maybe a bit warm in the height of summer)
The bag and a Hunka XL go in a 13litre Alpkit Airlok extra drybag and get strapped to the bars.

I drilled my ti spork with 30ish 3mm holes to save weight 🙂 And I don’t carry the safety pin for my balloon bed as I just pop them by hand!

Some inspirational stuff here.
I’ve been thinking about bikepacking for a while and next summer might be time to do it.
Is there a beginners guide somewhere, or is it a case of searching for old threads on here and asking questions ?
I’ll do a few short practice nights out first and short trips, but the long term plan is to ride from home, up the Severn, back down the Wye, then back up the Severn to home.Posted 7 years ago
Probably the worlds most epic cheeky ride. One full week, including both weekends, at 40 miles per day should cover it.MidlandTrailquestsGrahamMember
Yeah, definitely plenty of local single nights out before I head off on a nine day trip.Posted 7 years ago
It’s the basics I could do with some suggestions on.
What tent, what sleeping bag, how do I attach it to the bike, that sort of thing.
I’ve still got most of my old camping kit from years ago, although I suspect my whisperlite stove is the only thing still usable and not obsolete by now.vdubber67Member
Budget bikepacking for you.
Gelert 1.5kg tent, about £25. Altura big saddle bag, about £17, with Tesco lightweight £10 sleeping bag falling out, cheap frame triangle bag, £2 off ebay. Camelbak HAWG on back. Rode from Derbyshire up to Mark Townley loop, round the loop the next day, and back on the third. Brilliant fun.Posted 7 years agocinnamon_girlSubscriber
What an enjoyable thread. 🙂
I’m very interested in those saddle bags. Have a couple of ideas for 3 day adventurettes and am wondering whether there is sufficient room for changes of clothing.
I must confess however that I don’t do discomfort so would be staying in B & B’s.
vdubber67 – what did you think of your Altura saddle bag?Posted 7 years ago
