ZOMBIE OUTBREAK B.O.B SORRY NO PICS YET! Will edit when the gear arrives. Also will enter in more sections of my kit when I have them.

B.O.B Uses/Operation Specific. Just wanted to quickly say a few things about my bug out kit and detail it into time frames and operations.

My bug out kits are designed to give me maximum use with the least amount of weight/discomfort. This includes weapons. My B.O.B kit is in 7 different sections.

1) Chest Rig - Combat load and various items.
2) Grab Bag (Auscam) - Small utilities
3) Grab Bag (Black 1) Medical supplies
4) Grab Bag (Black 2) Demolition Kit
5) Hydration Bag aka Camelbak
6) Long trip bag
7) Weapons

Everything is broken down this way in order for me to lower the weight I carry, if I kept everything I need on me at once I would not be able to run from zombies (as I have seen many on this section show). In terms of surviving such an event as a zombie outbreak I assume most people would think "the more I have the better prepared I am". Wrong. The less you have with more use is better. And once again my apologizes for not having pictures but can't get all my gear while I'm broke, and sorry if it is not as in depth for detail seeing how I will not know the exact weight and space of my kit until it arrives.

1) CHEST RIG: TAG Multicam Plate Carrier (will not have trauma plates in). This will be on me at all times, will never be taken off when on patrol or in conflict.

x8 Single Mag MOLLE Shingles - containing - x8 f88 Austeyr magazines. >240 rounds<

On top of those will be

x4 Single mag 9mm pistol magazines - containing - x4 Para P18 magazines. >40 rounds<

Right side chest - Small items pouch - containing
- 1 box waterproof matches

Left side chest - 2 small pouches - containing
- Gerber Recon 4 Light LED Torch
- Leatherman Wave (Black Finish)

on the side MOLLE areas of the vest - 2 utility pouches - containing

- FAK (just a small one for standard injuries)

- Maps
- Compass
- More cylumes
- Notebook with cover (small notebook with space for 4 pens/pencils)

Rear of the rig will have a butt pouch - containing
- Small Tools
- Rain Poncho

Back left shoulder will have a radio pouch, not sure what type of hand held radio i will use at this time.

On my left and right leg will be -

RIGHT LEG: Holster with extra pistol mag attached
LEFT LEG: MOLLE drop down platform with as many pistol mags/pouches as I can fit (Weight may become an issue or my dexterity so will have to be a trial and error thing).

2) GRAB BAG (Auscam - australian army camouflage, check it out looks neat) This bag will be my main little stow everything bag, will probably attach it to my person somehow with a carbiner, if not this will be a transport stow away.

The bag itself is 11x7x7 inches in diameter. Has 6 external magazine pouches with a fairly large internal area.


- x6 Steyr magazines. >180 rounds<
- 100MPH tape
- 20 Cylumes
- 30m Paracord
- 5 Carabiners
- Stationary pouch
- Small foods such as power bars
- Small FAK
- 5 flares

I have personally tested the space on this little bag and trust me it all fits :)

3) Grab Bag (Black 1). This will be my medical bag. Won't go into detail now because I do not have this complete yet. This bag will contain enough medical supplies in order to fix most major injuries.

4) Grab Bag (Black 2) Demolition Bag. For when I need to take out 50 zombies at once or blow a bridge or rig charges on something this bag will have all the intricate things I need. I have a homemade book from explosive ordinance designs I have made in the past which will be in the bag. Will not explain whats in the bag because I don't want anyone else getting any ideas :) Sorry guys.

5) Hydration Bag. I currently have a rip off version of the Camelbak HAWG design. Has MOLLE straps which come in handy and 2 large compartments in which I can store food and a water filter system in (not an expert of the water filtration stuff so any suggestions would be good).

6) Long trip bag. ** Will continue this part when I have one and some gear to put in it**

and finally

7) WEAPONS. MAIN > BACK UP > RIOT/CROWD CONTROL. **Due to me being in Australia I have limited access to any decent firearm compared to you guys in the US, I am however joining the army soon which will allow me access too two of my weapons I will be using. The sidearm is LEGAL in south australia after holding a license for 6 months**


F88 Austeyr A2
Mod Rail
ECLAN75 scope
Double Taped magazines for first two >60 rounds<
Single point sling

I would take this gun over any AR, AK, M4 any day of the week. More durable and less likely to malfunction than the above listed weapons.


Para Ordnance P18 - 9mm

No modifications


Remington 870 pump with folding stock.
Stock sling
Shell carrier on stocks rail.

All of my Bug out gear seems like a lot. It is in a sense but this will all be mainly seperate from one another. The demo kit, FAK bag and auscam bag will mainly stay in my transport vehicle unless I need it.

If you guys want to comment on my stuff or ask me something go to my introduction page and ask me viewtopic.php?f=10&t=74790

In the event of a zombie outbreak. Kit > Transport > Team > CP > Wait > Patrol > Live.

I have tried to be redundant with both bags here while keeping a budget. Our BOB for our daughter is her diaper bag (not pictured). We keep three days worth of food, diapers, medicine, a change of clothes, and a coat in there.

You can see that the Camelbak is filled with quite a bit of stuff that I bought for other purposes (hunting, camping, fishing), but keep it in this pack all the time in case of an emergency. Almost everything in the LAPG was bought specifically for bugging out. There is a good deal more budget items in the LAPG pack, since I have some pretty decent gear in the other pack.

My overall bug out plan is to grab both packs, my daughters bag, our camping tent, a 5 gallon water jug, a large Rubbermade tote with our car camping gear inside and leave in my truck. The tote includes cookware, a stove, fuel, fire starting gear, airbed, lanterns, sanitation supplies and more. The bags would each be redundant for most of what is in our car camping gear.


Here is the LA Police Gear 3 day pack:

Side Molle Pouch - Med Kit

-Quick clot
-Rubber tourniquet
-Basic boo boo kit in small zip lock bag
-GSW Blow out kit
-Pads (not pictured)
-Shears, forceps, tweezers, all not pictured.

Side Molle pouch - Tools/gear

-Duct tape
-Mylar blanket
-Bic lighter
-Swiss army knife
-Self powered flashlight

Front Pouches - Food/cooking

-32oz water bottle
-Metal cup
-Stove w/48 fuel tabs
-Bouillon cubes
-Fleece cap
-Led flashlight
Main Pouch

-Wool blanket
-Tarp w/tent stakes
-Camp trowel
-Candles and matches
-Deck of cards
-More snack bars
-BDU pants
-Tee shirt
-S&W pocket knife
-Sanitation kit
-Wipes, toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, soap, hand sanitizer, tampons, and deodorant.
-100 oz camelbak bladder

Here is the Camelbak Pack:[/b]

-Small swiss army knife

Survival tools

-Fishing kit (wrapped in duct tape)
-Can openers
-Small light
-Electric light stick/whistle
-Vaseline soaked cotton balls
-Candles and matches
-Safety pins and paper clips
-Paracord wrapped light stick
-Emergency blanket

I have added a bunch more mountain house meals in both and a handfull of bic lighters since I took the photos.

Obviously both are still a work in progress. I am planning to add the following soon:
-Closed cell foam mat for the LAPG pack
-More food
-Water filtration for both packs
-Smartwool socks for both bags
-A set of polypro underwear for each pack
-Maps for both packs
-More OTC meds for both packs

I thought you'd like to see what all can fit in a original Gunslinger. Basically a comfortable 3 to 5 day pack-- indefinite if you can trap/fish or hunt. You get the idea'er. I could squeeze my North Face 2 man 3 season tent in there-- but it adds 8 pounds. 2 weeks ago I walked up into the local mountains-- it started to snow and I had a real hard time finding dry wood. But my bag and shelter kept me warm. The pack worked great-- I hiked about 10 miles in by myself and the pack fared better then I did. I am really out of shape.

Here are the pictures from the warmth of my living room. I have President's week off so I thought what the heck.

If you have any comments or suggestions I'm all ears...errr eyes. I take constructive comments well.
In this picture you can see my:
Pathfinder Knife-- with stone and rod
Sleeping Bag (in a water tight bag)
Reusable Space Blanket
Mylar Emergency Blanket
Fire Kit in the Pelican case-- striker, matches, lighter, candles, steel wool, Wet-Start, Vaseline/ Cotton Balls, Char-Cloth, and when all else fails gun powder
Road Flare
Sling Shot
Critter Getter PVC pipe kit-- fishing tackle/ 10lb test line, snares, bank-line
First Aid Kit--and Mirror -- Super Glue
Roll of Bank-Line, Para Cord Donut
Riggers Belt (in case I don't have a belt on)
Bandanna (with local map printed on it)
Cooking pot
Water Filter
Guyot Designs SS Backpacker Bottle
CC Radio
Headlight-- Extra Batteries-- Back-up Light
Chem Stick
Small Goodie-Bag
MRE's and a couple Rice Packets (that actually taste good)
Haversack/Pack (modified from the butt stock cover that came with the pack)
Now you see my AR
Now you don't (well sort of)

The pack has a 3L HydroStorm in it-- and a pocket for a second one.
I got my Guyot Designs SS Backpacker bottle in the second pouch.

Only thing I really want to upgrade in there is my AXE-- I want a S.A. Wetterlings Axe bad-- but they are currently unavailable (the model I want). At least at the price that they should be.

If I needed to I could bring my trauma pack that is in my truck or my EDC.

Here is a photo of all of my BOB supplies. I am going to go thru it all after I get stocked up some more and then I will be able to post decent photos of everything that will be in my BOB.

I ordered a years worth of shelf reliance and it arrived today along with a case of MREs which is the box top left.

My current basic day to day pack, thrown together in case of another severe earthquake and I need to GTFO until I can salvage items from home, so there is still work to do on it (batteries, some compact and high-energy food):

Pack Contents.

(Roughly top > bottom)
- Thermal ware: synthetic "knitted" hat, thinsulate gloves, thermatec long-sleeve polyprope.
- Nikko Sterling binoculars.
- Slash-proof and rubber-latex based "Ninja" gloves.
- Extra emergency blanket (other in first-aid kit).
- Fire kit: Bic lighter, Swedish firesteel.
- Two rolls of insulation tape.
- Stainless canteen + carabiner attachment.
- Leatherman Blast, with leather belt sheath.
- Medical kit, standard issue with addition of water purification tablets, codeine, disprin + paracetemol, and anti-histamines.
- Microfibre towel.
- Lighting: Petzl TakTikka XP headlamp, Cree LED powered maglite.
- Navigation: Garmin GPS, silva carabiner mini-compass.
- WebTex camo pack cover.

Not pictured: Black Diamond locking carabiner + quick-draw, Petzl 80cm + Beal 40cm climbing slings, Samsung Galaxy-S/i9000GT (used to take these photos :P), whatever jacket I have on me (Colombia Titanium lined/waterproof, Kathmandu 700-series goosedown). Also have a Kathmandu gas-stove, and cooking gear... but haven't included in this pack.

Left: BoB, Black Diamond Hollowpoint.
Right: Shelter, Kathmandu Bora 2-person hiking tent.

Have a few sleeping bags, ranging from alpine to overnight "holiday" type. Main purpose at the moment is to get shelter, and fetch other items when able to.

Pack with WebTex cover (bottle sort of indicates exactly how compact this is).

I was not here. You did not see or hear me.

Still working on the bag and adding stuff.

I just purchased a Kifaru Marauder from a good friend of mine and wanted to post a couple pictures. I'll update this space later with the details of what it contains. In the meantime, here are a few pictures:

I trust that the pack of gum is empty so that at the most appropriate moment you can successfully pull off the "I'm here to kick ass and chew bubble gum" line?

Finally getting around to taking pictures of my bag. Its come along pretty well. Right now, I'm missing a fishing kit, and I'm planning on wedging a Hennassy Hammock in there somewhere. Buuuut lemme know if I'm missing anything else. Right now, it's modular. I'm a little light on food, but I've got a 20 gallon bin full of canned food and a few other supplies in my BOV. Not sure what it weighs in at, probably close to 35 with the firearms.


The bag! Started with a Spec-Ops T.H.E Pack, with 3 expanded MOLLE pouches on the outside, a Nalgene, and an attached Cold-Steel magnum Kukri (re-edged to not suck.)

Nail clippers

Many flavors of adhesive bandages

AAA batteries
LED headlamp.
Duct tape on a card x2
Cable Ties x20
Electrical tape
Glow sticks x3
Fishing Yo-Yo x3
Sharpening stones (coarse/fine/x-fine/ strop)

Clothing/Warm stuff


Wool button down shirt
Grundens nyolon water resistant overpants
1 set thermal underwear
2 pairs of socks
1 Wifebeater
1 synthetic Kelty sleeping bag (Showing uncompressed, it actually DOES fit, believe it or not.)

On any given day, I'm probably wearing a pair of immortal Duluth firehose pants. Hopefully I'll have the time and sense to grab my Filson jacket on the way out the door.
I still need to add a shelter to this :(

My daily carry tools.
1 Set folding lockpicks
1 Leatherman Skeletool
1 Kershaw Leek

Otis universal cleaning kit

I've got a gifted knifesmith friend making a really awesome custom bushcraft knife at the moment. Might update the post with that whenever it comes around
Thats pretty much the mess of it. I've got like 10 more of those fishing yo-yo's in my BOV too.
Should probably get some hooks and tackle, huh.

Have I made any hideous oversights? Like I said, I know I'm shy on food and a shelter. Workin on it!

Well, while not technically a bugout bag, I thought I'd share my system for organizing my gear.
Bugging out to me (and my SO) means leaving my bugout, so my cart loadout is more refugee kit... technically speaking.
I have a closet secured, instead of installing shelving I gutted the room and have room for three of these carts. One is my go gear, one is my mobile gear shop, and one is and deeper level of refugee food and kitchen supplies, pioneering tools and my camping gear. All the individual packages are tagged (and weighed) so if I am away from home and need to get gear shipped to me or loan gear out each loadout is easily identified. My SO has one shelf for herself, seasonal bumps are packaged in the clear crates.
Each package pretty much represents an augmentation to what a person would have in their bugout gear. I have a good supply of gear at my backup location, so my gear choices are oriented towards a more nomadic, or plan D... scenario. One shelf is my augmented get-home gear including a pre-packed weekend bag, and a pre-packed 'two-week' clothing bump, and my most primitive/lightweight camping gear loadout. Some of the duffels contain more than one 'related' loadout, some have space left in them for consolidation.
Setting up these carts make packing for a road trip much faster and keeps my gear limited to a volume I can handle with my vehicle situation.

What's not on the cart, my daily carry and get home bag, water cans, my med kits, and my training gear.

Pics only for now-- this is my old BOB, the Arc'teryx Echo, hiking in the smokies.


Note: I am buckling my hip belt, not taking a piss.


Semper I, F*** the other guy.
