Nifty little bag for a cook kit or misc items

I ended up getting one of the Condor H2O packs which think is some kind of hydration setup.

It works really really well to house the stanley cookpot, ss cup, gas, cook stove, utinsels, lighter and the entire cook kit.

IT has that moly webbing system so can strap other things to it and strap it to a pack or rack which is really handy. The picture below makes it look big and bulky but it isnt. Its just the right size.

I have found that i can keep this in my main triangle hanging from my top tube using the heavy duty straps / snaps on the pouch. It works great. To keep it from swinging around i run a small strap through the carry strap holes and go around my seat tube. I have found this a very good way to carry your cook kit outside your panniers / bags so you have more room there and it is quick to dismount and have a brew up of some soup or coffee with very little effort. Its very affordable for what you get and it is very durable.
Strapping it right to your front or rear rack or bars works well too. It is quite waterproof as well. A great little bag.
Highly recommended.

Agreed, these make excellent bike bags. For those interested, similar pouches can be found on ebay for less than $9. Each holds about 1.5 liters

Add three Velcro straps to attach to handlebar and stem, and these make great stem/feed bags when hung from bars for a much lower cost that stem/feed bags offered by many bikepacking sites.

This has my interest ... as my stove, cup and utensils currently get stored separately in my panniers. My MSR Windburner stove is 4.2 inches wide and won't fit in the pouch you linked. Luckily there are similar products that are made to hold a 64 oz water bottle that would work with my stove. I'm seriously considering this idea to house all my kitchen in one container. Thanks for the tip.

I have tended to use old stuff sacks that were probably campmat or something sacks, or maybe standalones, to put my simple stove+pot kits in, but this is at the bottom of one of my front panniers--but I can see how the d clips would work great for having it suspended/supported inside a frame bag to stop it bottoming out in the frame bag.

For other stuff I like this type of mesh bags as they are diff colours, which is nice to keep track of stuff in a pannier.
I use one colour for my "warmer clothing" stuff (buff, and whatnot) and another for my socks, underwear and other small "loose" clothes things that can mixed up in amongst other stuff, and this leaves really only my rolled up long quick dry pants, rolled up civvie shorts, rolled up fleece, a t shirt, and my second pair of bike shorts and jersey (always wearing the other set)

all in all, keeping various stuff in "groups" in their own bags or whatever help a lot in keeping organized and being able to find stuff, and to not loose stuff either with things mixed up in amongst other stuff.
