    Looking forward to seeing your gear

  2. jonnytacoma on July 11, 2021 at 8:12 pm

    Love the breakdown of your storage ideas!! I think you need a bigger boat?

  3. Barry Sumner on July 11, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    I went through my crates yesterday in the spare bedroom and thought, I’ve got way too many sleeping bags.. I should get rid of some. Then I laughed at the absurdity of that and went about my day.

  4. CampFires & Coffee on July 11, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Nice and organized. Just how I like it!

  5. Francisco on July 11, 2021 at 8:18 pm

    backpacking is a niche hobby that actively encourages hoarding

  6. Erick Piedra on July 11, 2021 at 8:18 pm

    Awesome setup. I have similar quantity of gear but it’s spread out and have trouble finding what I need. I see your bins don’t have labels——mainly because they’re mostly transparent? FYI, I had stacks of MREs lying around and somehow mice entered the garage and had a feast! Good informative video buddy!

  7. Yoddy Agung on July 11, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    Does it also matter in the way you store your tent as the way you store your sleeping bag? I mean, will you ruin its fabric if you keep your tent in its stuff sack for a long period of time? Pardon my english.

  8. TheTrailDancer on July 11, 2021 at 8:23 pm

    I feel your pain!!! 🙂 How have you financed/afford all of these items? Were a lot given/comped? Love to know… Thanks!

  9. The Titan Preparedness Channel on July 11, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    This reminds me i need to clean all of my gear and make it look nice…yeah thatll happen one day

  10. Escaping the Office on July 11, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    Next gear storage video: "Welcome to the Warehouse."

  11. Brock paper scissors on July 11, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    P.s. I’m a high school senior looking at colleges in Utah.

  12. Tim Dula on July 11, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    And my wife thinks I have a lot of gear. Impressive.

  13. Tracy Az Hikes on July 11, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    I had to put my Mountain Houses in a tub. A mouse got in my closet got up on the third shelf up, and chewed holes in two of them.

  14. Russell Jolly on July 11, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    The cost of his gear is larger than the GDP of most countries.

  15. William Kapes on July 11, 2021 at 8:45 pm

    I use a similar rack+bins setup. I find having a "current" bin makes it much easier to pack and unpack for a trip. The bulk of my stuff stays the same but then I can swap out any bits that need adjusting based on the current conditions. Saves a lot of mental effort since I’m not chasing down everything each time.

  16. ThatGuyYouKnow23 on July 11, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    You know you hit peak backpacking youtuber when you do a gear review of the stuff you use to store all the gear that you have tested and reviewed.

  17. Brendan Price on July 11, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    Thanks for sharing Devin! Thumbs up to the vid.

  18. Brock paper scissors on July 11, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    You said in a schill brothers podcast that you worked in a college as a professor. I’m curious to what school that is?

  19. Edward McGovern on July 11, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    Thanks for sharing. My goal for the winter is to purge and organize. You’ve given me hope.
    Also, not backpacking related, but what models were those family camping tents? I’m likely going to need to replace mine soon.

  20. Love2Wander on July 11, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Devin Nice setup thanks for sharing

  21. bertman4 on July 11, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    Nice organization. What sizes are your bins?

  22. Ryan Harmening on July 11, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    Finnnaallly!!! ;)… btw have u seen miyagi on the trails organizing video? He talks and shows how he stores his down quilts and sleeping bags. Check it out

  23. Cheyla on July 11, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    If you have too much I’m willing to take some off your hands 🙂

  24. AZ Claimjumper on July 11, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    Your fishing gear category – do you have any Hobo Fishing poles/lines, etc.; something that is small, light, & capable of catching fish with a hook, something that is hand-held, something that can easily fit in a pant pocket or backpack?

  25. Tarun Daggolu on July 11, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    How did you afford all this?!??

  26. Arcana73 on July 11, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Either you have money to burn, or contacts in the industry.

  27. Neeman Callender on July 11, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    7:20 amusing to see how embarrassed you get to mention how many tents you have…
    Would you like to do a video about overbuying, a problem some of us have ?
    and then ideas of how to move stuff and sell it

  28. DMS Adventures on July 11, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Organized just means… you know where it is haha! I have a fraction of the things but I have a mostly empty basement with a ping pong table…. so most everything ends up on that!! It WAS organized at one time in a 4-drawer plastic cabinet thing. Next time I want to play pong it’ll get back in there! Fun video and I’m glad to see some of the family camping gear too!

  29. Casey Sr. section hiker on July 11, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    How to sever the attachment to most of it & get rid of all that stuff while recouping a few buck$ is the video I need to see. Anybody still interested in Svea 123 white gas stoves & ‘mostly’ complete Tourister cook kits etc;?

  30. adrian perez on July 11, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    Let me know if you want to part with anything. Beginner backpacker here but I know I’m a tarp guy for sure.
