Hello. First post. (Looked for an intro thread, but didn’t see one.)
If this question has been covered many times before, sorry, and please direct me to the thread where the topic has been discussed.
I’m slowly working on overhauling my gear set-up, with an eye towards reducing weight and also bulk, but still wanting to retain some modularity. With an eye towards implementing as much multi-purpose equipment into the set-up as possible, my thought started turning to having the pack bag also serve as a bivvy bag. Has anyone else attempted this. Or is there some amazingly obvious drawback to this that I am missing? Obviously the bag would be much longer than the frame I plan to mount it on, but that can be folded like a dry bag and clipped to the sides or closed with a draw string etc.
So, curious as to whether anyone else has tried this, did it work for you, any drawbacks, etc.?
