Is a video ok?

Here is a quick video I did of my small scale BOB. This is the one I keep in my car in the event I get stuck down at work (I work about 53 miles from home) after some form of disaster. I plan to make it home.

The one thing I did forget to show in the video is about 25 feet of paracord, I have that in there as well.

Yeah you will for sure want rain gear in their. Also a cheapo tarp like 5 bucks would be a great roof if its raining out. I know sitting in the rain when your trying to sleep isnt fun at all after a few hours. As for your cheap pack if you payed less then 40 bucks yeah it was a great deal or free :P otherwise alice packs at like fleetfarm or another army surplus store usally have them cheap and pretty decent condition. Bright orange might as well have a bullseye with it full. Food is only like a couple bucks for a 48-72 hour thing unless you go super fancy.

Yea the bright orange bag is definitely something that needs to be fixed immediately, I considered Alice packs but I don't find them very comfortable. I got this pack for just under 50 bucks and I'm thinking about trying to paint it or something (don't know if it would be worth it) because I really like the fit, very comfortable for the pack size. I've also considered tarps but I don't really want one of the cheap ones because they are bulky, but then the ultralight ones are expensive enough that you might as well get a tent in my humble opinion. Took care of food today added some Wise dehydrated food packages.

Thanks for the input

@numnums

Just a Idea I just came up with I wonder if dyeing your bag is possable like what you would do with your clothes. Spray painting your bag might not work cracks and what not. Another idea is go to a shop that sells fabric maybe and get a color you like then if you know someone that sews or if you do maybe sew the fabric to the bag and cover the orange areas.

These are just thoughts that I would maybe try.

These are BoBs btw. I wouldnt say camo is the best option ethier.

Thanks for the ideas I didn't really think about dyeing it, everything would be the same color but if I did black it wouldn't really matter.  I like the size of the bags you posted. I feel like mine is a little big and could use some cutting down.

This is mine:



- Paracord
- Poncho raincoat
- Shemagh
- Cold weather gloves and hat
- Green wire (for traps...)
- Slingshot and mini fishing kit
- Big survival knife with sheath
- SAK with sheath
- WC paper and kleenex
- Mini Esbit stove with fuel and aluminium foil
- Repair stuff (duct tape, super glue, needles and string, sharpening stone...) and fire kit
- Space blanket
- Multi vitamin food complement
- Canteen (1L) and purification water kit
- Cooking pot with snacks, cafe, sugar, Knorr cubes, salt
- Bivybag

Here in the backpack, with direct access to first aid kit, whisttle, mini compass and mini led:





And easy access to the main knife, the poncho, canteen... Or WC paper  ;D

...Of curse, I also carry my EDC as a complement of my BOB in case of bug out. A few items that are not in my BOB (such as a lintern, a multitool...) are part of my EDC.

If you have an old tent rainfly, that will work as covering as well as shelter.

I am seeing a lot of effort to plan, make and prepare for what could come.  I am seeing very good ideas from you ladies and gentlemen. But what I would like to have seen in some of these posts is how you practice using some of what you have packed.  I am a SERE officer in the military and have extensive survival training.  What I can express the most to all of us, myself included is a part of you list should be a training schedule.  I noticed one post had a member with his gear using or at least out in the field ready.  Another thing I have noticed is when reading on bug out gear I see many members here and my students use commercial type equipment.  One thought on commercial equipment is that stuff is designed to be produced at the lowest cost and sold for way more than it is worth.  A suggestion I can make is military surplus was designed for rough use and easy repair on the go.  It last longer and you don't get that "I really paid that much for one use" feeling. 

So as this thread progresses lets all include a little more information.  How long are you intending this gear to last, how much practice and interaction with others for the same purpose do you involve yourself and what are your long term plan if returning home becomes not an option.  Also post EMP communication and food.

Thank you all and keep up the good work.

This is probably one of the most practical lightweight packs I have seen on here. It seems to have all the basics covered and does not weigh 70 pounds! All it needs is enough food for 3 days and it is pefect!

Good job man!

Ok, here goes my Modular BugOut Bag / Gear System
Please see this post for further clarification

Some Notes:
-   Easy to distinguish items are not numbered.
-   There are some items purposefully left out. Water, Sleeping bag, Food, Clothes. Too much chore to haul out.
-   Level 4 is in a pack but this does not mean it will be carried on foot too. It is more of an auxiliary one with all the niceties and refill gear.

Level 1 - EDC items



Level 2 – Survival Items (carried in a Funny Pack)



1. Dark Chocolate & Sesame Bar
2. Rescue Blanket + Pill Pack
3. Wet & Dry Wipes
4. Nylon line, zipties & Kevlar rope
5. AA Flashlight (custom light engine)
6. Zebralight Headlamp (mind turning item!)
7. DuctTape & Liquid Soap
8. Emergency Charger (to be retired)
9. Coffee Filter, Folding Funnel & Water Purification Tabs

Level 2A – Day Hike Gear. No.2A is added to no.2, all carried in a Versipack clone ATM.



Poncho with pegs and cord, trash bag, mora knife, bug repellant (photoshoped in)

Level 3 – BOB



1.   Tyvek groundsheet, 2 bags
2.   Milk jug (extra water container) holds various heavy, hard items. Batteries, Zip-ties, wire, etc.
3.   Emergency Bivvy
4.   Hygiene Pack. Towel, gloves, dishwashing soap, etc
5.   Glo-Toob marker
6.   Monocular (Nicula x7) an amazing item purchased for just a few dollars from overstock
7.   Tube, holds 2 lightsticks



1.   FAK
2.   Cup cover made from a can
3.   Coffee filters with a clear sheet homemade funnel (they need support when used, else they tore)
4.   Fuel tabs individually sealed

Level 4 – The Support Pack



1.   Powerbank (holds 4x18650 lithium batteries) + Connectors
2.   Small folding antenna with connector & radials (to be replaced with a better model)
3.   Small tools (the supplement the Laatherman)
4.   Radio AA battery pack (E91s inside)
5.   PVC tube with more chemlights, roll of marker tape bellow it
6.   Water purification tabs



1.   Tarp + shelter equipment
2.   18650 batteries
3.   Dereelight DBS flashlight, with custom light engine (my other specialty)
4.   Small window alarm with fishing line spool
5.   Wine Bladder
6.   Nitrile Chemical gloves
7.   (missing) FAK refill pack

So.. that’s it.

I hope you get the idea how items pile up making a progressively complete kit with little overlaping of items

I am open to any critique, Greekman

Bivy Bag
« Reply #162 on: December 23, 2012, 09:24:12 PM »
I see that you have an Adventure Medical Kit Emergency Bivy Bag. Just a thought for its use. It gets really cold here in winter, so I keep a -20 degree goose down sleeping bag in my kit. It's the best warmth for the weight and size (compressibility). However, in below freezing temperature it is better to put the bivy inside the bag, rather than the other way around. Your body will give off water vapor as you sleep and will freeze in the down, rendering it useless very quickly. By putting the Bivy Bag inside it will act as a vapor barrier, preventing this. You may feel "clammy" at first as the humidity in the bag goes up, but you will stop perspiring at a certain level (not as in heat exhaustion). This issue is more of a problem with down bags versus synthetic fills, however they to will also "ice up". In really cold weather, we put our feet in a plastic bag, then wool socks, then felt pack boots. Yes, your feet will sweat, but your insulation will stay dry and your feet will stay warm. Remember to adjust your gear to match the seasons, especially if your pack will store in a vehicle where it could freeze!

wise advice...

But i have some catching up to do on the vapor barrier liners. A year ago I heard about them but what i got is that it works if you do it right. Since I have not given it any more thought/look it would be wise to have a (better) look at it again.

thanks....

These are all great ideas.  Thanks for sharing.  I keep a deck of cards in my BOB.  It can help pass some time when there is time to kill.

Since my bugout kit has to include stuff for 3 kids aged 3-10, time killers are a must.  Cards, and a good fantasy novel that can be read aloud like The Hobbit

Sort of a security measure/trap....tie the fishing line on the magnet, hold it in place with rubber band....Lien is pulled and the alrm goes off...

Greekman: I too like the "box-of-wine" mylar bladders. I would suggest a fabric carrying bag to support the weight; remember it was designed to be in a box when filled. This also helps with punctures if set on the ground. Also, that aluminized Mylar gives you a huge signalling device.

indeed.....I was thinking more line a liner made out of a tshirt etc.

What mistake I see in many BObs is that they lack means to really carry water. 2 water bottles hardly cut it when you have to carry water from miles away to your downed car. Especially when you have to use for boiling/filtering.

PS waht Is not seen is a can of ready made tea, (it rides in a big ziplock with BOb food) It is not only a comfort item, it is also a second water boiling container.

I have read all the posts, and complement you all for the photographs.  Obviously a lot of thought have went into these bags.  Different situations dictate different contents, so there isn't a standardized bag contents.  One thing I did notice, most of the bags and contents show little if any use.  Items still in factory packaging, knives that show no wear/use, packs that show no indication of ever being worn.  I would encourage you to actually go out on a "survival" week end, using only what is in your bags.

well the BOB is such a beast, lives in the dark corners of the house and rarely shows its ugly face... ;D

Idealy one would have a duplicate set, BOB items and use items.
I personaly I exchange cost with effort. I exgahnge the "on call" tems with "work" before a campout. My gloves are an example. You don't want to see my work gloves, they are for the second mending of, and rather useless too.
Then some items are not to be used. My SOL bivy will barely make it through a night outdors, unless yuo sleep motionless liek a mummy. I took it out once at home, got into it,saw that is a tight fit and made an estimate of the temp comfort level.

On the other hand I will agree with the unpacked items. It shows less interest in proper organizing, and guys....don't yuo still feel like a kid that cannot wait for his cristmass gift?

In our case, we have knock-around gear that we take camping/hiking/etc.  The equipment is run through a ringer when we go out.  If it works, then we buy additional items and keep those in our kits.  The only real exceptions to these are our knives.  They go with whatever we're carrying out the door.

     I see very few kits with "zip ties". I keep a bundle of the heaviest ones I could find. They can only be removed by cutting. Along with making or repairing things, they are an easy way to secure troublesome folks to immovable objects, enabling you to walk away without being followed.
     Great minds think alike. I too have discovered the window alarm. There is one on the market that has a "pull pin" to activate it. The other is two pieces, with a magnet switch. Camoed, wrapped with a rubber band to keep it together and tied to a tree with a trip wire, they make ok perimeter alarms. I would imagine they could be modded to activate a "flashbang" or flare.

Well, Ive nicknamed it 'The Beast'
42 lbs Woo!

That is not hideous. But 42 pounds does get heavy after a bit. With my daughter weighing 30 pounds now, I need to try to shave 12 pounds off my pack, it was 28. So now I have to get it down to 16 to 20-ish. As I have to carry her and my BOB at this point, but getting her ramped up for hiking again, but with her own 5 pound pack.

I was going to try and make a minimal bug out bag... just the necessities. I am staring with a grey ghost gear light weight pack. Once I get it all done I'll post pics.
