Garry’s luggage is fully waterproof omitting the need to pack clothes and gear in separate bags.

Included below is a breakdown of what he carries in each bag.

Luggage cycle panniers
Garry’s bags are nearly all made by Ortlieb


  • Front Left Pannier; Sleeping bag, sleeping mat and silk liner
  • Front Right Pannier; Cooking equipment, crockery and cutlery
  • Back Right Pannier; Generally odd bits, tool kit, spares, maps, food and usually a can or two of beer just in case!
  • Back Left Pannier; Clothes, laptop, chargers, medical pack and toiletries
  • Bar Bag; Head torch, glasses, ride log, cameras, sun cream, sweets, bottle of coke and headphones. The map case on top has obviously a map in it and also a compass
  • Tent Bag; Believe it or not a tent! But also a Thermarest chair
  • Other Bags x2; Large bag contains waterproofs and sits on top of the tent on the back rack. The smaller bag carries my fleece when I’m not wearing it and sits on top of my back right pannier


Sea To Summit Travel Day Pack

The Sea to Summit Travel Day Pack. An extremely lightweight daypack that compresses down into its own stuff sack and takes up about as much room as a pair of socks.

Because Garry’s main mode of transport is his bike, he rarely needs a backpack. But there is always the odd time when it comes in handy. Whether it’s playing the tourist, walking around the sites of some city. (not that that happens very often!) Or that trip to the consulate, to get a visa. Where you’re required to present a myriad of documents, everything can be easily carried, in the Sea To Summit Travel Day Pack.

Garry’s pack sits at the bottom of his pannier and get’s forgotten about until the next time!
