I took a liking to Suntory (Bill Murray’s from Lost in Translation: “for relaxing times, make it Suntory times”), which is actually Japanese but happens to be the most popular beer in Shanghai. Truth be told I tried them all and this was the one I went with, though Tsingtao was good, too. The volume pocket houses a couple tall boys perfectly, along with gloves, a watchman’s cap, and sunglasses beneath the beer. Things with volume that you want to have quick access to. I’m used to “working” out of the top of the bag at this point. I set it down and opened up the exterior compartment to access its top pockets, both of which are open in this picture. At the very top is a closed pocket (non-mesh) with a coyote pull where I house things like my iPod, spare camera battery, notepad, etc. Things that take up less volume, which would probably sink to the bottom of the volume pocket. At this point I have a system that works for me.
