BOB Packing List – Woman Gear First

BOB Packing List – Woman Gear First

Below is my wife’s BOB bag inventory and images.
Current weight with the complete below listed inventory – 45lbs even. This counts the Sig 229, mags and holster.

Weights Measured with "My Weigh Ultraship-75lb" scale. When weighing under 2 lbs accuracy is to 0.1 oz, above 2 lbs accuracy is to 0.5 oz.

I am currently making some adjustments as I want to drop approximately 10lbs of overall weight while adding some more food and either MUM-14 or PVS-18 night vision.

I plan to accomplish this by:

going to a light more efficient sleeping bag
reducing the cold weather gear by switching to merino wool
trimming the medical kit
trimming the repair kit
trimming the hygiene kit
switching Streamlight M6 for Surefire X300

As always, it is a balance as I do not want to lose capabilities. Though physically and mentally prepared, neither my wife nor I want to make a foot movement when we can either drive out or stay at home. Regardless, worst case is something we prepare for.
There are a number of items that are unnecessary for survival so-to-speak, but are in place as they fulfill there role in what I foresee as the most likely events occurring in SoCal whether natural (fire, earthquake, flood, etc.) or man-made (political unrest, HazMat spill, etc.).

Our bags are packed under the premise we may not be able to return anytime soon and our house will be ransacked or destroyed upon return. Nothing we will be wearing/carrying mark us as anything other than a couple idiots with big backpacks. My truck is preloaded with additional equipment and supplies almost continuously as I have a locking tonneau cover and I only drive a couple miles each way to work.

Our bags complement each others, though there is a bit of redundancy. I have a MSR Sweetwater (though the HyperFlow looks nice), more advanced medical gear, and more food. My bag is a coyote ruck that I will post as soon as I reconcile everything in it.

Our hard drives (each of us has a duplicate copy 2.5” hard drive updated weekly) contain all of our pictures scanned at 600x600 dpi, all account, medical, professional, etc information that we have. It was a pain to scan it all, but it is easy to maintain once your up-to-date.

BTW, my background and profession have me training, if not working almost continuously ─ in the field and elsewhere. My training/experience is above average. We are both fit. The reason most of our gear is new/like new comes from my obsessive desire to have new/like new crap if it becomes so bad we need it. I purchase it through work and test it out; if I like it, I buy it new for our bags, verify it is good to go, modify as needed and store for a rainy day. Everything is always left packed and ready to go with what is on the appropriate listing. Perhaps not the cheapest or most efficient way to do it, but it works.

If you have questions or constructive suggestions/advice, let me know.
