    Realized i never really did a packout with my Moskomoto 40. This would be the "heavyweight setup" with tent. But also missing another 25L drybag that Id use for clothes. Also heard the Mosko dry bags werent good or would tear, so I swapped them for Sea to Summit Dry Sack 13L (and they arent even full)

    Contents:
    Chair
    REI Passage 2 tent
    Tent poles in separate bag
    Jetboil, single propane
    One breakfast mountain house
    Gerber saw
    Klymit sleeping pad
    Pillow

    My bike came with Tusk side cases. Think i might switch to soft bags though. IDK yet. It rides fine on road but id be curious how it does off.

    I've heard if you go down with hard cases, more of a chance to get your leg pinned. Where soft bags will compress

    I get that but you would have to fall in a weird position since the cases are so far back. . Idk though. also it could help from getting leg pinned in some situations since it protrudes from bike. Also has less chance of goods being damaged inside. I like the idea of flexibility of the soft case. I like how i can easily remove my hard cases though.

    Did you buy the tent yet? If not, spend a little extra and get the bikepacking version. The poles are significantly shorter and easier to deal with on the Big Agnes bike tents. I use the Fly Creek 2 UL Bike tent and the whole thing including poles packs down to not much more than a Nalgene bottle.

    It doesn't take much to come off the bike while it's still moving forward and have the case smash your leg. If I plan to ride a good bit of rough terrain I swap the hard panniers for soft bags for that reason. Hard locking panniers around town are a lot nicer though.

    Yes and no. Depends on the fall. In some cases hard cases can actually create a pocket where your leg won't get smashed since it'll sit higher off the ground than a soft bag that'll compress lower. The one fall I had where my leg got pinned under the bike I'm pretty sure a hard case would have snapped a bone, but I've had multiple other offs where it would have helped keep my bike from falling as far down sidways and would have been nice. I sold my hard cases and went soft bags, but the utility of hard locking storage was pretty amazing, too.

    Motocampers! I'm using a Reckless 80L system currently and have been really impressed. My tent poles end up kind of long when broken down, so I'm interested in the tents being used.20230914_161931.jpg

    Love packing cubes. Especially when I had hard cases since it kept the aluminum from rubbing off onto my clothes.

    Do you like your current tent? And if so, hae you looked into buying shorter replacement poles instead? It'd be cheaper than a whole new tent.

    The tent is fine, kinda old but really doesn't have too many nights in it. I'll have to see about shorter poles - it's a Eureka tent.

    Had a $100 Amazon card, so I grabbed the footprint and an extra tarp. I'll order the tent Weds once all this OT goes through :D
