I suggest two bags - one for what you're going to wear and the other for the rest. You can then leave one in the boot but have the rest of your kit to hand in case of emergency / change in the weather.

That's a great idea!

I tend to drive around with big boat and dinghy kit in my car... but all in
one bag, which is definitely looking the worse for wear - quite apart from
the fact that being a 'Silk Cut' bag it encourages all sorts of speculation
about how I came to be in its possession - the truth being all too boring!

Why don't you take out a couple of subscriptions (yes I know you're the Editor) - then you get two free bags for your kit and can give the magazines to deserving postees

BTW in the 8th Oct issue who are the gorgeous babes on p45? They should be entered for the top totty prize!

gael, you should get a trident bag with the dry part in it.   i soooo no what you mean about taking everything with you, (it's girl thing!!) my bag is about the same size as me! but i have one that i can actually fit into and do the zip up (i was also carried around in it!!) and no i'm not tiny the bag is HUGE!!
i have had my trient bag for years now and it still hasn't broken!
bye the way, im not a sales person for trident!

beginning to fall apart...

Any suggestions for a replacement?

Or a strategy to keep my gear down?

 

I have a plastic box with lid - useful for putting on wet changing room floors - this has my drystuff in to change into after sailing, then I put my wet kit bag - one from a local sail maker dwon here in the westcountry - which has all my stuff in actually wear on the water in. And useful to put really wet stuff in is a dry bag, so you can seal it up and water stays inside and not all over your car or dry stuff.

Also having the plastic box means you can stand on it when putting trousers on after sailing, without having to get the bottoms all wet and ick - sad I know!! But it works!!

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Sounds like it was your overactive imagination adding the tied up bit

Zip them up in a bag and open it again when they grow up
