Took a very short hike today (about 2 miles) with my Molly Mac Pack configured as a day pack. 10 pounds total - hardly noticeable.

The vile-colored thing at the left of the frame is my fleece vest (what can I say, it was cheap). It is attached with short brown cinch straps I made.
You might be able to see that I moved my countycomm EOD bag to the very bottom of the pack.
Apologies for the washed out photo - having problems with my photo editing program.

I'm not actually sure how one is supposed to attach the hydration sleeve, but I seem to have found a way so that'll do for now (I am considering switching back to bottles so this may become a moot point for future trips).
