Re: Gear for the Trail....

A regular dayhiker myself. At least 3-5 times a month . Mostly short trail between 2-5 hours walk. Up to 14 hours "dayhiking":). Only in hot and rainy Malaysian wheather.

After walking 14 hours I don't think anyone will really care if they are actually bring along even the best camera in the world.

For short dayhike; 2-3 hours:

1) 25 litres North face bag with 1.5-2L of water in hydration bladder

2) E620 + 14-54mm in small Naneu  correspondent C5 (with rain coat)

3) Olympus Xz1 in small bag hang on to main bag shoulder strap

For longer "dayhike"

1) Deuter Groden 35L with raincoat . 3L water in hydration bladder with another 2-3 litres extra water.

2)Olympus Xz1 in small bag hang on to main bag shoulder strap

After the last long dayhike I totally left my DSLR at home and just bring the xz1. Since all my dayhike start in the morning until afternoon, xz1 is actually good enough since I never print photo and only share them in the web. And more importantly xz1 has very useful macro mode.

E620 ,14-54mm in small Naneu bag.

Deuter Groden 35, xz1 in small bag.

Most common setup; North Face 25L, hydration bladder, xz1 in small bag.
