Drysack hack

Convenient as backpacks are, I am a bit sick of looking every bit the part homeless person/mountainman wherever I go. Backpacks also fit rather poorly on my bicycle trailer. Enter the drysack, which has the added advantage of being completely collapsable and foldable, so I can hide it when I don't need it.
The shoulder strap that comes with it though, is awfully narrow and bites into the flesh of any pack mule after a short while. So I found a padded strap to use when lifting stuff with cranes, apparantly rated for up to 1000 kg. I fastened it on with some carabiners. It feels wonderfully comfortable, and I like to think the bright purple color adds further to my very fashionable appearance.
