    Default day pack liner

    My day pack, maybe 15 L, Has been flaking out the lining. I also have 4 bicycle panniers I made and later washed the lining out. So I need some bag liners in the 15 L. range to keep stuff dry. The trash compactor bags are good for the 50-65L packs. Any suggestions for the 15 L. range?
    Thanks!

    I've always used kitchen garbage bags of an appropriate size (small or medium). They are not as stout as a compacter bag, but work fine for several day hikes, even if not stout enough to last for daily use on a thru-hike.

    I've also heard of people using oven roasting bags that come in various sizes, some of which might be appropriate. They are like a heavier Mylar type material.

    Lastly, if you use a poncho for your rain-gear, you can do without a bag liner, and your whole bag stays dry, inside and out.

    Have fun.
    I'm not lost. I'm exploring.
