Greatcoats and Knapsacks
After doing some searching on packing knapsacks...I was curious, if one were to bring a greatcoat to an event would you be better off packing it IN the knapsack (M1855 Doublebag for Union Impression) and having your blanket and shelter half rolled on top of the bag or vice-versa (greatcoat on top and blanket in knapsack). Right now, I have it with my greatcoat IN the knapsack and the blanket/shelter half are rolled on top.
FYI: In the envelope portion, I have an extra pair of socks/shirt/rope/small lantern/poke sacks for hygiene, cleaning kit and some small personal stuff.
Thanks and I guess this is more of opinion then anything....
