Pack organization.  Finding the right balance between having the right organizational elements inside your ruck without overdoing it at the price of superfluous weight is an ongoing struggle for even the most practiced.  Take a photo and submit your current setup to Pack Light.

Q

maik524 asked:

If you'd only have one backpack that could serve for urban commuting as well as for short week travels. Which one would be? Should definitely be some waterproof and medium capacity.

A

GORUCK GR0 for short people like me, GR1 for taller.  I’ve lived for a week out of a GR1 easily.
