Going out to test my new BikePacking for Macro System. I've done some blog posts in the past about biking to spots that were to far away to hike to, but with only one bag carrying limited equipment. This system will carry all my gear, plus video gear. I'll be doing a video on all the equipment and how it is stored in the bags, hopefully soon, as the weather is starting to warm up.
