    Here is my brother, 'Possum, with his load out on the Peregrine. You can see the front panel.


    This Gage and I, yes he has a MMP as well. You can see how I use the belt to the fullest extent I can and the front panel as well.

    Took my Molly Mac Pack out on a hike yesterday.

    I didn't get anyone to take a pic of it on me. Sorry.

    I carried everything I'd need for a summer overnight (above 40 degrees) except for my quilts and my tarp and stakes.
    I stuck my Gossamer Gear thinlite pad on at the last minute since I didn't know how windy it might be while I was lounging at the lake. Normally, there'd be a Thermarest Prolite XS in one of the quilt bags.
    The reason the CCF is on at an angle like that is so it wouldn't stick out past the edges of the pack.


    Here's how I loaded. Top row: Warbonnet Traveler hammock
    Second row: large MMPouch attached sideways with First Need water filter and a windshirt.
    Third row: green dry bag with wool longjohns, fleece hat, gloves, and spare socks.
    Fourth row: two medium MMpouches, one with food and first aid and potty kit (tissues, ziplock, and one Groundhog stake), and the other with my poncho and a ziplock of Random Weird Stuff (headlamp, knife, line, Dutch utility hooks).
    On the belt's webbing I have one water bottle pouch on each side - one for my Nalgene and one for the waterbucket and my rain chaps.

    My camera, compass, StickPic, sunscreen, lipbalm were in my pockets and my bandana, whistle, and time-temp dangler were on my shoulder straps.

    There was a 20% chance of thunderstorms that day, so I popped the Packa
    over the load and cinched it down a lot!
    The green sticking out at the bottom are the two waterbottle pouches on the belt.



    When I take this pack on an overnight next week, I'll probably move the two medium pouches to the top row, and put the dry bag with hammock and thermarest at the bottom, then cinch the third dry bag over top with the quilts. I'm going stoveless and taking my Ursack, so the Ursack will go on there somewhere. Some of the contents of the pouches will get shuffled around a bit.

    By putting the large pouch sideways, I can get to the waterfilter without anything but maybe loosening a strap or two. And the pouches at the top means I can get to them with no trouble at all.

    I like the front pack, but I'm large enough that it is quite sung with me and the front pack and the Molly Pack all zipped in. So I'm trying a few trips without it.

    the large pouch I got from Mac has very long straps/ties/whatever, and there is the usual array of webbing on the back, and some that is at 90 degrees. So I sort of weave the straps in any old which way and it seems to stay in place.

    I'm going to have to order one of those from Mac.

    I went on a short overnighter, car camping trip with some friends. I wanted to use my new Molly Pack, so I loaded it up and threw it in the truck. Here's my summer overnight load out. The hydration pack wasn't necessary, but I wanted to see how it would ride.

    nice axe... most folks would leave that at home, but they are mighty useful in camp.

    Thanks, I used it a lot this trip. I have a chair that you build a tripod as the frame, and the ax came in handy during construction. https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...ad.php?t=78262. I also used it to split some firewood.

    Mac I love the pack you built me, Thank you

    I find the large pouch so useful. It becomes the catch-all for all the little things I don't keep in my pockets.
