Putting the brakes on

Early on in the thread, I was in full on GAS mode - ready to buy a backpack, stuff sacks, merino base layers, peak design clips, 3 layer rain jacket etc. However some reflection and watching outdoor videos made me rethink the bag first, then everything else.

Don't worry about getting everything at once, as you progress through your adventures you will add bits and pieces when you need them. If you do get around to buying a bag in the future, I would suggest looking at hiking specific bags like the Osprey Manta or similar with an insert. I never found camera specific backpacks very comfortable over long distances, and will happily trade off the speed of access to my gear for comfort. There are workarounds though, like getting a small toploader bag and attaching near your hip if you need quick access. Enjoy your hiking and getting outdoors, there's so much to explore!
