Falcon, that's a nice kit! That's very similar to how I need my kit to be.

Falcon, I can't identify some things:
-the item on the top left (can opener?)
-the bag with black & white writing (sewing kit?).

You welcome ireckon, when you get done with yours, I'd like to see your version. I'm always looking for ways to improve mine by putting as much quality items in as least of space possible.

I have an Aquapac for a camera, which works well. My main concern is that it get punctured. I wouldn't fill it then just chuck it naked into a pocket; I'd want to give it some protection, if only another plastic bag.

Thanks for the advice Brangdon, I put it in a pocket by itself and use freezer bags to hold some of the components on the inside. When I first got it I was skeptical of it's strength due to how thin the material was, but I am still running tests on it but so far it is holding up like a champ. I even carry it in one pocket that has a 10 in one screwdriver and reading glasses in the pocket and no failure yet. Still waterproof and I have been monitoring it to make sure it will hold up. Time will tell but so far this has been the best bang for the buck for waterproof and compactness I have found so far. Roll up bags and nylon zip pouches doesn't cut it for true water except for watershed zip drys but they unfortunately don't make small pouches.

I find a dice bag (synthetic, not leather) to be useful for providing a bit of protection, organization or privacy:

Just a thought, I'm not sure if it would be good over the Aquapac.
