I have taken the plunge and bought a sound devices 788T with SSD and CL8.
Also a M/S rig consisting of Senn. MKH40/30 combination.
I would love any hints or tips re cabling, bags, tripods, stands.. etc.. all the wee things I dont want to discover I've left out when I arrive at the first port of call!
Here is the rig as it stands.

If there's any hints and tips anyone can give or any glaring ommissions.. please let me know.
I'm stepping into unfamiliar territory.. the great outdoors. How do I keep the gear dry etc..? quiet clothing? any favourites? backpacks.. audio bags.. all hints and tips gratefully received.
