At the 2023 BRAT, you can pack as much as you want! You will always have access to your vehicle, so bring as many bags as you would like.
We do still encourage you to pack in waterproof bags and plan for all possible weather conditions. Additionally, it is helpful to have name tags on bags and gear. This helps us get items returned to their owners, in case they are lost.
