This is what i had in mind, but in my case a need a thicker pad, something like 3 cm. So I would probably do one myself. I just don't know how this affect the feel of the backpack and if might be worst than it is (regarding comfort during use).

comment What size dry bag is best for keeping and washing clothes?
@BenCrowell, not trying to be rude or anything, but have you read the question? I don't know any other context for a "drybag" and a google search on the term is right with what I mean. I described what I wanted to to do in the question and expanded in the coments. When I say backpacking there are two different contexts here, travelling around with a backpack and nothing more, and the other scenario is hiking or trekking in the wild.

@RussellSteen Washing in the primary purpose, storage is secondary (and like I mentioned, also related to washing). Maybe my question wasn't so clear.

I know that, but in this question I'm trying to find if there is any advantage to using a smaller bag instead of a larger one (and not replacing one larger with more smaller).

I won't keep clothes for days there, I will store it from one morning until the laundry night on the same day. I know about mildew, odour etc. My point here is: being the same price, is the bigger the better? Do I have any really good advantages to using a small dry bag instead of a larger one (in this case I'm talking one to one, not one 20l to 2x 10l).

Just tried to print some satellite images from Wikimapia, the resolution is terrible, is there anything better?

By contour maps do you mean something like that: mappingsupport.com/p/… . I guess it is called Terrain maps or elevation maps from what I've searched.

Wikimapia is VERY nice, all that extra info is user generated? What about contour maps? Where can I find those?

Thanks, how did you print it out? Did you worry about scale or end up using whatever the screen shows you? What are Satellite Contour Images and where can I find then?

I don't own a GPS, but I have a Smartphone that I used on some shorter hikes (the batteries wouldn't last more than a day hiking with the GPS). In this case I want to learn and pratice to navigate using map and compass, the problem is I can't find any good or updated maps of my area.

comment Where to carry a folding knife when hiking?
As I said above, I will be using light trekking pants, so they aren't as sturdy as cotton ones.

comment Where to carry a folding knife when hiking?
I do have a leather waist pouch/fanny pack. I don't know if I will bring it to the trip since I will be carrying a backpack the whole time and the wait pouch will probably feel unconfortable below the hipbelt.

comment Is there a problem on using each boot manufactured on a different period?
I think this happened in the store, and not in production. Decathlon here is a mess, so it is not far fetched to imagine they sometimes swap boots around. Anyway, I was a bit worried if the rubber, leather, fabrics, etc could show a difference.
