The idea is to make a slightly larger sac then what 1tg now makes. Use the black orca UL rucksack. Increase it's carrying capacity. Ty hen have three insert bags with it.

BAG 1 40L DRY BAG. Made from a thinner material than normal dry bags. It doesn't need to be as durable as it is an insert and will be protected by the larger sac.

Bag 2. 20 L food bag. Making it as air tight as possible to lock in odors. Sac made more durable so if you decide to hang it from a tre at night when your sleeping.

Bag 3-. Final bag is just standard material to help sort out what's in your bag.

They all insert into the pack to help keep your gear organized and dry.

Main sac staying mostly as it is now. Change front pouch To a standard zipper pouch

Thoughts?

Exactly..I tried drawing it but came out looking like the blob..lol
I discussed with @Nick and he said most outdoor backpack has the outer one one only without these bags inside. They need to be bought seperately. He also mentioned that people who prefer to classify and organize their gear should be very enthuastic and pro for outdoor.

I have several dry bags that I put inside my packs. Side note, just finishing up a four day backpacking trip, last day was pouring rain the whole time. Used my OneTigris poncho, and everything in my pack stayed dry. Other people on the trip had stuff get wet using pack covers and other ponchos.

I agree Dean. On my last outing it was extremely damp outside and my spare cloths were damp as well from it just being so muggy and damp. But it also allows to keep your gear organised each inner bag having its own purpose. So if your in a damp environment, an outer dry shell won't help you keeping specifics dry like an actual dry bag would.

Or that it makes sense as two seperate products?
or may be 3 without the outer backpack I guess. they are for different purpose. So as your description above, one dry bag, one food bag and one small bag. I am still confused what the final one is for?

I can understand having dry bags for clothing, sleeping bag and food and such but when it comes to other gear such as camp stove whatever type and metal objects or other type of heavier gear could see if they using lighter material than some of the dry bags out there them ripping and tearing. Not everything needs to be in a waterproof bag.
