When I go out hiking in the woods, I generally will carry the vast majority of my gear on my back in a backpack because I am able to carry a lot of gear including emergency supplies with me this way. However, this is not at all the most convenient way for me to carry item that I would like to be taking out and putting away often such as my camera. For this, I make sure to have another bag.
To make different items extremely accessible, I try to make sure that I am able to easily carry all of the different products that I need handy in a waist pouch bag instead. This pouch puts the most important items right within my reach so that I have them when I need them. This is where I keep my bear spray and my camera since these items are ones I would need to take out quickly.
It is great being able to have a bag like this that will make it significantly easier for me to get to the items I need quickly. Everything else can easily be placed into my backpack where it takes me a while to get to it. Items that I don’t have to have right away and may never use belong in the backpack for sure.
