• Fnar indeed as my lightest tent is pretty big, so maybe tent mounted on the panniers. Thinking of heading up to Scotland somewhere, and cobbling together some bike packing kit to test it out. Be good to know that Planet X stuff was at least able to carry a bit of stuff , well half a two person camping setup with most of the weight in the panniers I would probably pedal.

  • I carried (just over) half a two person setup for 10 days in the following:

    1. 13l saddle bag
    2. Half frame bag from Alpkit (still had room for 2 big bottles)
    3. Handlebar roll ~10l
    4. Two fork leg bags ~5l each
    5. Top tube bag

    My partner had the other (just under) half in:

    1. 2 x Ortlieb Gravel panniers
    2. Half frame bag
    3. 10l bar bag
    4. Rapha bar bag

    That's including a 2kg tent, sleeping bags / mats, trangia and pretty minimal kit otherwise.
