Packing in drop bags...

Help me out here, cuz I've just never made friends with drop bags. But I like the light and simple approach.

What do y'all pack in your drop bags?

I don't have dutch ovens, or milk crates of produce on most trips. Seems like a drop bag is good for 1 full size drybag, but in a drybox I am able to get much more stuff, and quicker access to it.

What am I missing?

Any photos of full, but open, drop bags? Show off your packing prowess!

I pack camp chairs, boat pump, extra sunscreen/bugspray, and random fishing shit that can get wet and banged around in mine. No pics because I'm lazy like that.

Are your chairs in drybags? All that stuff is stuff I prefer to keep a bit more dry than a drop bag. Drybagging chairs seems like a hassle...

rolla a table and firepan are about all I usually end up stashing there. suncreen bug spray etc all have homes that dont require moving passengers to access.

Nope, just in their normal bags, never noticed them getting wet inside those.

I bought a roll of contractor garbage bags, always carry a couple for those just in case moments and put two chairs in one bag. Same trash bag has been on the last three trips.

My chairs are in an old Bill's bag. Keeps them dry and easy to carry two with may hands free for Tequila

If the river is cold enough to drag beers one of mine is full of beer (or as much as i need) if not I can put 6- 13L dry bags, or 1- large dry bag, or camp chairs and fire pan. My other one has 4 ammo cans.
