The other day I made a short trip and noted my camera gear takes up a fair amount of space. I'm going to need to find ways to pack and organize my gear in a way that makes sense. Any good tips ? Items that you use that make packing and organizing easy - dual purpose items - mods that help ?
( a member commented in another thread about how my question eventually ended up straying off topic so if we can let's try and stay on topic just to see if it helps)

1. What you do or use
2. Why ?
3. Where you stay it

In short I'm looking for ideas on what will help organize better.

Syncrodoka is correct, there are a lot of topics covering this.

Nevertheless, I like the Eagle Creek packing system.

Try a search (Title only) on
'Storage'
and on
'Pack'
and some good topics come up.

It really is better to add onto an existing topic then start a new one about the same thing. Very Happy

The FAQ threads are full of good information.

Read through these threads, do your own search and ask within the existing topics.
