    Found the best organizer / chest pack /top bag ever!

    While going through my garage I found an old organizer which came with my Hobie Kayak. After a quick look it was clear that this would be my new organizer. It is just so multifunctional. Since it rains here since day's I packed up and decided to give my Clark the final bad weather test (it did very well) and try the organizer out. 10 hrs rain. So here is the organizer:
    I can hang it from my ridgeline during the day, use it as a top bag in the head end of the Clark at night and hang it on my backpack as a chest bag during the day.
    It is big enough to hold all the essentials like wallet, phone, keys, camera, head toech, sancks and other small items. Love it.
    Made by Hobie for the kayak seat.
    Also tested my home made gear hammock for the food, works brilliant to. (no bears here in Australia, except the dreaded Drop bears)

    Very handy! I like the fact it doubles as a chest pack too.

    I know they do sell them seperately, shouldn't be very expensive either.
    Maybe the DIY / cottage guy's could pick the idea up and tweak it a bit?
    (pockets inside..)
    Love it so far, very happy

    I went to the Hobie website and checked their online catalog, I couldn't find it.

    Drop bears are a real danger and dont like being talked about...they get very angry.



    Good idea on repurposing gear.
