This is something that has troubled me for some time and I'm hoping for a little beta. I find myself bringing everything including the kitchen sink, up any given aid pitch that is not a splitter finger crack. Should I just go up the pitch with a light rack, and call up for things as I need them so I stay light and organized or do you often take a lot of everything up a pitch with you? I understand that it depends on the situation, but I find myself bringing everything. Any advice?
Thanks!

Every now and then i leave the sink behind. Most of the time i rack up everything i can cram on to the 16 gear loops strapped to me. The only exception is if its an obvious finger crack...then i leave the burtha's with my partner. I think zipping gear is a pain in the anus, just suck it up and go with the wind chimes
