was walking around wally world today and saw a hunting pack that would work for a new set up for my bug out system.

the pack its self filled with 5 mres, some oatmeal, bullion cubes, cache lake camp food (search for it really good and they have a website), 2 quart canteen, 3 liter hydration bladder, and the other odds and ends you would need for a B.O.B. also pictured is the pistol belt/on person survival kit. This belt and kit would always be on me in a SHTF kind of situation. the small gear pouch is with me where ever I go along with one of my pistols.

the pack set up with mosin nagant in the rifle holder, 90 rd battle pack in an old bandolier, and HI-point 995ts that will be in my hands.
Image

the pistol belt and gear that is on it mosin nagant pouch holds 40 extra loose 7.62x54r rds.
Image

contents of small gear pouch that goes on pistol belt
Image

and My EDC (I only carry one of the pistols at a time)
Image

and the contents of my BOB
hygiene gear, ammo, and rem oil cloth
Image

spare clothes
Image

first aid kit, knives, multi tool, sharpener, shelter (survival blanket).
Image

cordage, trash bag, binos
Image

poncho, candles, chem lights, batteries for flashlight
Image

toilet paper, hand warmers, shower wipes, water purification tabs
Image

esbit stove, pot, canteen, small bowl with silverware, and a can of herring
Image

mres, emergency food bars 2400 kcal, 4oz. water pouches if i cant find water.

Not bad but I think you went way overboard on the weapons. I'd ditch one of the rifles and all but one of the pistols. That will save a tremendous amount of weight and allow you to add some essentials like the fire starting supplies/tools, shelter, navigation (map & compass), spare clothes, first aid kit, light source (flashlight, glow sticks), etc.

Ditto. Look at my sig on how to built a decent BOB.

I have the same old school Ka-Bar and like it. I would consider clothing and shelter options. All the firepower in the world won’t stop the rain. I am sure we could make your BOB even better. Good start!

all of the essentials you mentioned are inside the pack. i will have to take some more pics of the actual contents of the bag but everything is in there. I really only plan on taking my carbine, mosin nagant or ruger 10/22(not pictured), and my sigma. this was just to showcase the new bag set up on the BOB post with just pics here on the forum i have a semi detailed pics of the items inside the old bag.

i really do thank all of you for your input though. one thing I have learned in life there is always someone out there that knows a better way to do what you are trying to do.

Mosin over the Hi-Point any day! Mosins don't really break , or you have to really work at it... and even then it is likely a small part. I would say one rifle and one pistol. I break my firearms down to:
Bugging in : any gun I own.
Bugging out with car... .308 bolt gun, AR, 1911
Bug out on foot: AR and 1911.
Weight kills mobility.

Looking ok otherwise!

its a 6 compartment box designed to transport jewlery. I love it as well since it holds fishing tackle, 2 quick tinder tabs, matches, small first aid kit, 2 mini glow sticks, a p-51 can opener, small led flashlight, a button compass, and some snare wire. really works great and fits right in my pocket. carry it everyday.

I have been thinking about switching out the hi-point for a ruger 10/22 to put on the pack and carrying the mosin nagant. only reason i like having the 995TS is for the ease of finding ammo for it. chambered in 9mm makes it easier to find more ammo for it. im sure i could find ammo for the Mosin as well but not as easy as 9mm.

if i have to bug out yes. i will only take 130 rds if i have to go on foot. with 9mm i can take 200 with out a problem and its a more common caliber than 7.62x54r. if i bug in then i have no need for the bag and can stay in my home with all my ammo and prep supplies.
