A very useful piece of kit that Garry carries is the Sea To Summit travel daypack.

An extremely lightweight daypack that compresses down into its own stuff sack and takes up about as much room as a pair of socks so that it can be tucked away in the bottom of a pannier and forgotten about until the next time.

Garry finds it particularly useful when he’s stopping somewhere for a few days and tends to walk more; it comes in very handy for getting those essential supplies or for carrying that all-important guidebook.

Luggage

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.

Cycle panniers
Garry’s bags are nearly all made by Ortlieb

Contents

  • 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
