I have finsihed v2.0 of my Bug Out Gear. (as if this stuff is ever really done...) Anyway, I'm about to take it all on a shakedown run. (again, as if a lot of it hasn't been shook down...). I have learned a lot here, and a lot the hard way (who cares...). So, please take a look, and let me know what you think!!!! Pro's, cons, missing, needed, get rid of, whatever! Give it to me straight up... A few notes: #1 I think of this as a 'system' that builds from the small pouch to the pack. If I were ditching gear, it would be in the reverse order presented here. #2 My area of Operation is Tampa Bay Florida, at the very north tip of the bay.\ #3 I believe there are 5 critical pieces of gear: Knife, Water, Fire, Light, Meds. I want these in TRIPLICATE at a minimum, and available in some form in/on every piece of baggage. So - here we go! Here is the whole set: Survival Pouch Maxpedition Jumbo (My Main Bag) Canteen Belt & Belt Pouch LAPD 3 Day Pack *weapons may be shown later - not my focus at the moment....trust me, i have an assortment! My Survival Pouch: Intended to get me through 24 hours. 72 very uncomfortably.... This is stored attached to the Jumbo - but is immediately placed on a pants belt or in a pocket. The items I NEVER want to be without: Swiss Army Climber - in easy to see when dropped Stay-glo Gerber Ultra LED Light Frontier Filter straw Condom/Knee Hi/coffee filter 2 Aquimura tabs Bic Steel Striker Qwik Tinder Bandaids/Neosporin/Alcohol wipes/Ibuprofin/allergy pills Paracord Bracelet Button compass and Biner Wanna kill these ads?
