In the pic below, I have:
- REI Siesta +35 (double) sleeping bag; rolled tight, compressed and in the blue waterproof bag you see on the tourpak
- REI Hoodoo2 tent (AWESOME TENT) that actually fits in the side saddlebag (on top over other things; won't sink down to the bottom, but I like that). Takes all of 6min to put up and about 4min to tear down (after the first couple of times you do it).
- Medium Sized North Face Bag (for a 'medium', it's big) for clothes that is strapped in as my passenger (the yellow bag). I do lots of business travel and take my bike every chance I get to do that. There is easily a weeks worth of clothes in there for me including two suits, dress shoes, etc...
Even with that, I still have open one full saddle bag, one half saddle bag (the one with the tent in it), and the tourpak. I usually have my laptop in a slimcase in the tourpak which isn't too space intensive. My rain gear, tire kit, extra bungees, first aid kit, jacket liner and the like all go into the open saddle bag.
I could see easily putting some small cooking equipment and food in the tourpak; no problem. Not enough for a week, but certainly a long-weekend. Have done three 5K mile trips over the last 2yrs with this setup with no issues. Fun, fun sleeping under the stars when you have the time.
