It's never too late, my preps are always an ongoing adventure of trying this, ditching that kind of thing. I appreciate your input!DooooMeD wrote:A late reply to this thread, and my apologies if I'm resurrecting anything here -
My thoughts are that the IFAK is missing..... Super Glue. (I didn't see it in the listing)
I keep several unopened tubes in a plastic toothbrush holder (the two piece type for traveling). The little case is strong enough to prevent accidental crushing. The SG is good for mostly closing deep cuts [gotta leave a drainage hole], closing up small cuts, fixing holes in things, etc.
For the saw, at Home Depot, I picked up a little folding (locking) saw that uses sawzall blades. You could easily carry a pruning or demo blade and a carbide blade and have 99% of all sawing needs covered. You can also sharpen the spine of a sawzall blade to have a large fixed blade for butchering if you plan on taking larger game.
Hope this isn't too late of an addition.

I actually need to update this thread again at some point.
I have ditched some redundant and heavier stuff as well as added some stuff via suggestions from other posters. For example the battle belt has been tossed out of the mix and I shifted over to more weight saving stuff sacks.
I also ditched the big pouch on the left side of the harness belt on the pack as it was getting in the way while hiking when I took it on an overnight to test some other stuff out.
I have also re-organized the clothing adding in a lightweight down jacket that is much more compressible/ light and layers well.
