Pack Rafting with the Southwest 55
A few years ago I tried pack rafting for the first time. Armed with a Costco float, my Southwest 55, a mat and some food, I set off with some friends to try our hands at a small rather tame chunk of the Mckenzie river. I trusted my southwest to keep my clothes, my camera gear and my mat dry, which despite being flipped at least three times actually held up better than expected. Still, I know it wasn't technically built as a complete dry bag, so my question is, how do you work with HMG bags/Pods/anything else to go full packraft mode?
I have a growing list of pack rafting trips I'd like to get on some day (from Mexico to New Zealand...and many places in between), so I'm itching to chip away at a viable packing list. Any advise is appreciated, but I also love to see classic gear shots and gear lists.
