Thought I would share, as this is something I do semi regularly. Especially if I have backpacked into a place and setup a base camp. I use it when leaving the camp for a few hours to explore and scout around; yet still have some items with me. It's really simple, and I'm sure a few of you guys do similar, but here's my "Gear Roll" for a short scout about. In this instance I have a steel water bottle, fire kit, folding knife, and a bar; along with a schemagh or other large piece of cloth. Place the items in the corner of the cloth (tightly together if possible). It also helps if they are pretty uniform and lined up. Just makes the whole wrap easier (and easier to wear). Next start wrapping the items with your cloth. Make sure to keep the whole thing tight. (Like rolling up a sleeping bag) Once you have rolled your items all the way to the opposite end of the fabric, twist/wrap the tag ends. This helps hold the whole thing together when you tie it around your waist. Finally, locate bundle in the small of your back and tie the ends securely in front of you. If done right it will hold your items easily and not unravel. No joke, I have ran with this setup on and I didn't lose items all over the trail. There yah go, minimal and hands free hiking setup. If you do something similar, post up some pics!
