I'll try and get some photos posted, but this idea is too good not to get out there immediately. it's the ultimate ultralight, compressible, and cheap rucksack for urban bivouacking. cost about $17: 4 chico bags ($2.99 each from Whole Foods), and 2 NiteIze S-biner #2 (plastic probably OK, I got metal for about $2 each). connect the bag in pairs using either a loop-to-loop knot or a girth hitch, doesn't really matter which IMO. then clip the near sides of the handles to each other with the S-biners, and throw it over your head. holds probably 80 pounds, balanced, doesn't slip off the shoulders. I've been working on this for years, finally got it right. not that it can't be improved upon, but it's the best I've come up with so far.

got that photo up.
