[at-l] No pack cover



Hi Kiddies,
I've been following the pack cover thread. And thought I'd mention that a
couple of garbage bags on the inside can save a lot of weight. Haven't
use a cover in years, used to use garbage bag covers but they didn't last
very long, so I put they inside. My down bag is in small garbage bag
inside it's stuff sack and everything else is inside one or two bags
inside the pack. I sometimes put the things unlikely to be needed during
the day in one and the other stuff in another. Some times it all goes in
one, you can double bag if you're worried about them ripping. It's almost
as easy to get to as opening your pack and keeps everything dry, no
matter how hard it rains. Spare bags weigh almost nothing.
