    I put everything in my packs in zip locks , this will help keep your pack afloat if you loose it on a lake or crossing a stream and keep things dry in the rain.Easy to recover a floating pack than one at the bottom of a lake or river.

    That is a very good idea, nice. If there’s anything about survival it’s the effectiveness of being able to improvise!

    They have also come out with some very large plastic ziplock bags. Some big enough to put your sleeping bag, clothes, shoes, etc. in. I put my towels and clothes in them and then squeeze out all of the air that I can so it takes up less room in my backpack.
