Not much I would carry now that I didn't carry twenty years ago. In fact experience has taught me to carry only the necessary bits on the bike and nothing surplus. But I retire next year and I intend not to drive a car. Any local trips to the docs- the LBS- the town for shopping will be done by bike- or by foot. Don't like walking so it is going to be by bike. My concern will be Bike Security so I am going to be looking at a lightweight security system for the bike that does not weigh very much or take much room------- And be effective.
But carrying that little bit of shopping back and I have a Muset that the Pro riders use. Made of cotton- packs up very small and invaluable when you go to the LBS and find that must have item(s) that are just a bit big for the jersey pockets.
Didn't have it with me last Sunday when I bought 5lbs of Small Plaice while out on the ride. Good job I had the bib shorts on as they slipped into the straps on my back. Got a few odd looks from bystanders at the old bloke riding with a "Deformed" back that was riding so fast.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
