Compared to Dieter’s bag, I went in the opposite direction when packing for CES 2013. I specifically brought exactly what was necessary to get the job done, and I used the smallest bag I could to help avoid overpacking. While that could have left me open to disaster if my gear failed, everything here has proven itself many times over, and we had a plethora of backup gear in our trailer. I’ve been trying to apply this mindset to every occasion I have to pack a bag: what exactly do I need for this trip? What redundancies can I strip out to save space?
