You might consider getting a few cans of ‘Camp Dry’ (or whatever brand/type you prefer) and treating all your load bearing equipment. The ability to repel the water will make a difference in both comfort and weight, depending on what you’re packing.
Yes, it’s a pain to strip everything out, but it’s also a good time to inspect for rips, tears, abrasions, dirt (warm, soapy water BEFORE the Camp Dry, and let completely air dry…) to ensure it doesn’t fail when you need it. While you’re at it, check out your field clothing, too. All that wonderful lightweight goretex foul weather gear…and your boots…don’t forget them!
If you’ve not done this before, your gear is going to smell badly for about a week while it cures. Hang it in the garage at night, and leave it in the sun/wind if possible during the day. It’ll cure more quickly (or at least it seems to). When the smell is gone, it’s ready to re-pack and use.
