While I was researching packs for a 100km endurance hiking challenge, my interest in how we organise our gear gave birth to Pack Config, a place that inspires its readers to improve their own packs. What I carry, either daily or out on a hike, is constantly being refined as I discover new methods and products.
The unpredictable UK weather provides a constant challenge for my packing decisions. I enjoy every form of walking from woodland discovering with my wife and son, to long distance hiking across the local Downs. I had the privilege of deploying with Team Rubicon UK at the end of 2015 as a photographer/mud-shoveller and was humbled and impacted by the calibre and attitude of the whole team. I also take every opportunity I get to pursue my bushcraft techniques.

Here’s a selection of stuff I’ve been carrying in my pockets around the house, in our garden and for our regular lockdown woodland walks.
Lockdown and #stayhome has changed many of our daily carries. Here’s a preview of my EDC these days! Featuring: workout ruck, water fights, chalk for every outdoor surface, new patches, new PDW whistle, EDC knife and hydration!
Cub Config and I got out to a local woodland for some forest school from home. Our allotted time of exercise involved exploring new paths, plant identification and of course hot chocolate in a hammock – our favourite!
This EDC loadout kept my essentials close while allowing flexibility in the changeable UK weather. I’m looking forward to carrying this again. I’m also showcasing my new Mandalorian themed Religion patch, Beskar Bead and Modern Recon patch.
With Christmas approaching, I wanted to share some of the stand out gear that I’ve experienced this year.
With the sheer number of features, quality materials, solid construction and its rapid adaptability – this pack truly delivers.
