- Koi Pocket Field Sketch Box
- 5" x 8" journal (or two)
- mechanical pencil(s)
- ink pen(s)
- kneaded eraser
- 2 oz spray bottle
- 2 oz dropper bottle
- kleenex packet (or two)
I also was interested in something that was tough, light and waterproof (or at least water resistant). What I found was something that that would easily hold the above, and also carry:
- a water bottle for me - journaling is thirsty work!
- my field hat
- other personal items like a phone, keys, cash, plastic cards
- and I could secure my raincoat to it as well
The elastic rigging on the front of the pack is useful for holding my hat or raincoat, or even a larger journal. The adjustable waistbelt makes it really easy to get into and out of, and it was very comfortable to wear all day every day of the trip. While hiking I position the pack to my back, but when sketching I move it to the side, or even the front for easy access of items.
