Bikepacking: Tips for packing your kit on your bike.

When I am bikepacking I find that the weight of an item is less important to me than how small it is. What tips do you have for cutting volume? What are your favorite items that make bikepacking awesome for you?

On my bikepacking rig everything nests inside of somethig else, making the most of all my negative space.  I am also a big fan of the "DANGLE",  I often times look like the Beverly Hillbillies riding down the trail with cups and sandlas hanging off my bags.  As far as favorite items to bring along...  I always pack a fly rod for some post ride entertainment.  Nice thing about bikepackng is that there is usaully a sweet river or lake nearby filled with fish!
