What size duffle bags are those? Did you insert something at the bottom of the bag so it would keep its shape? (flat)
I can wait for the gear set up update..
The tail bag is the medium wolfman expedition. At first I thought it was too big but it allowed me to put a rubbermaid container in the bottom and it seemed easier to pack and close a partialy full medium bag than a completely stuffed small bag.
In one side bag I had my sleeping bag, big agnus mattress, small pack pillow, and all my clothes. The other bag had my tools, toiletries, gloves, hat warm gear and water. Stove axe, pump other camp gear and food went the tailbag.
I had a 3 gallon IMS tank and a 1.75 gallon rotopac that was usually empty. Other than the haul road and one other time the 3 gallon tank was enough. I also had a couple of MSR bottles for an emergency.
