Hello. Almost out of questions......got a lot done already. But I got one that I find myself thinking about a lot.
What's playa proven to be nice and comfy to wear backpack/bag wise? I'm sure things change with outfits, and lengths of playa adventures ect.
Normal backpacks? How about messanger bags? I see people using em around town, I've never had one before.
Already got a decent Camel pack. Lot of people just prefer one of those?
I know having lots of pockets is the best, but what happens if the costume doesn't allow for that? Fanny packs? Where does one keep all there fun gifts and gadgets?
I'm kind of a natural gifter, and 'gadgateer'. I want to know what's nice to carry my fun things in while I'm out and about, and where it will be comfy and out of my way as possible.
I just like hearing opinions. I'm self reliant, just also being prepared
It totally depends on you!!!!
I hate messenger bags because they make me feel lop sided. And walking miles a day, I like to keep my center of gravity.... Centered. My best friend, caries his man purse everywhere! He went as far as to have one custom built through some website.
I have always liked having a tool belt for tools.
Check out your local army surplus. They have those green belts with the 3 black vertical holes every 4" or something. They will also have a ton of different pouches and attachments that fit right into those holes. custom make your own utility belt. I have not been able to find a way to carry enough water on one of the belts.
The bag I use is one of those 1 strap triangle bag deals. Sorta like a messenger bag but goes on your back not at your hip. I've added a camel pack bladder. BEST THING I EVER DID! I've added some el wire. What I like about the triangle bag, is that I can swing it around from my back to my front, just like a rifle. Then allows me to to get into the pockets with out having to take it off.
Vests with lots of pockets, are another option.
As for my backpack not 'matching' my outfit. O well. I'd rather have all my shit and have a non coordinating backpack then be missing some vital *thing*, and look good. But, I typically have 3-6 beers or a bottle of champagne in my backpack at all times too.
