This is my bag, I use almost everything in there on a weekly at worst, monthly, basis. Some if it is in case of emergency, so it's not a daily user, cell phone and iPad aren't included, but they're also generally pretty close by. The bag is a recent purchase to combine my 3 smaller bags into something more practical... I also would like to find a small pan eventually, maybe a griddle instead. I'll figure it out, but cast iron is heavy so it'll probably live in the truck... Bag itself is a camelbak trizip. Soap and stuff is also in a dopp bag in the toolbox of the truck. I'll take pics of all that soon.

How far are you going and in what AO?

I'd ditch the etool and at least one pair of pants and one shirt. Maybe even all of your shirts and pants except the one pair you wear. Except if your shirts are layers. Bowie knife? And a machete? I'd ditch the bowie for a small 4 inch blade mora or something. Keep the machete. And ditch the etool.

But again this all depends on your AO.

Dont wanna sound foolish but what is AO.

And the etool has 3 purposes, dig, defend, sit.

Losing some of the cloths does make sense. Thanks for the tips.

AO is short for Area of Operation. Meaning what part of the country are you in? What terrain are you covering? How long are you traveling? Rural? Urban? ETc. etc.

As far as your etool goes. What are you digging for? (Seriously asking.) You already have a machete and a bowie knife to defend yourself. Which is still to much. Two very similar tools for the same job. The etool makes three. And why do you need it to sit on? (Again seriously asking. Not being a smart ass.)

Moab - I see your point about the etool now.

There's no pic or link, so delete this if you want.

I just got back from a weekend backpacking trip with my BOB--stripped down for simply camping. We did probably 3.5 miles climbing mountain trails, and another 3.0 or so down--and it nearly killed me.

We were having to take breaks every few minutes it seemed like, and that was after I'd taken out everything that wasn't necessary for that 24ish hour period. It was insanity.

Weigh your BOB now before you have to use it! Practice wearing it full and actually feeling how heavy it can be--especially some of you people with 4+ knives, a machete, an e-tool, a rifle, shotgun, 2+ handguns, and all the other stuff.

This is coming from a healthy 23 year-old male, and I know many of you are older and in worse shape than me. Just FYI...

Another thing take it out and hike with it. Even if it's just walking down the side of the road looking like a homeless guy you need to condition yourself to carry extra weight like that. Even a small bag can get you winded in short order if you aren't used to carrying it. I try to get out once a week and do 3 to 6 miles with my fullsize BOB and even though I've carried a lot more weight a lot further it's been a while since I was in boot camp and it took a few sessions to get back into it again.

But you have a good point about weight. You want to be humping ounces not pounds. Like the first post on this page why have 3 tools that do something similar when you can have one that does all three. It may not do them all great but it will get them all done.

Ammo- How much do you really need? I saw one post here where someone was humping 500 round of 9mm with him. Have you ever carried that bag along with everything else you need? I only carry enough ammo to reload my bug out mags one time. Even that is a lot of weight when you really get down to it and it's only about 120 rounds of 5.56 and 100 rounds of 9mm. I've got a 500 round case of 9mm sitting right here next to me. Screw humping that thing. I got a buddy who has a decked out 870 shotgun. He has a sling that holds a bunch of ammo and then a stock mounted shell holder not to mention a "zombie spike" on the mag tube. That thing has to weigh close to 12 pounds. Ouch.

Clothing- Your top layer will last a pretty good while even being worn everyday and you can do a quick clean in a stream if you need to even without soap. Most of what I Pack clothing wise now is Underwear and socks. The two most important clothing items you can have IMO.

I need to get my get home bag and BOB out and get some pics and descriptions up now lol. I have some in here but they're way outdated now.

Contents of mine and my husband's BOBs, unfortunately can't post the pictures but you can get the general idea. Not completely done yet obviously but coming along nicely I think since they waere just started a month ago :) The packs are quite similar in contents so just noted where there were differences.
Both packs are camo Molle system style with a camelpak, mine has two medium sized pouches attached to the front, a small expandible pouch with mulitple pockets is on the side and on one side of the belt is my canteen case. On the ther side of belt will be an ammo pouch when I get it. Husband'smpack is larger and had more pockets than mine so didn't need as many attachments. He does have the small expandable pouch like mine and a medium pouch on the front.

Sewing kit in waterproof container in my pack only: Buttons, small scissors, thread, safety pins.

Mini fire starting kit with waterproof matches in a waterproof match case in both packs plus hubby has a fire starter in his bag.

Cookset with pan, plate, utensils and foldable stove in both bags.

Waterproof notebook and mechanical pencil, assorted zip ties, and a hand held vacuum pump for ziploc bags (my bag only).

Can't forget the dogs!! 3 days worth of food and a collapsable food/water dish in my bag. We bought extra paracord to make leashes for them as well. By the door to grab on the way out are their harnesses, bark collars, and a leash splitter in case one of their leashes needs to be taken apart, they can both be on one!

Food in both packs: 3 single serving MREs, 1 full meal MRE, 1 tube of electrolyte dissolvable tablets, 1 Powerbar protein bar, vacuum sealed bag of dried fruit, vacuum sealed bag of trail mix, 2 Cliff protein bars, 1 MRE sugar snack, 1 MRE dried fruit snack.

We both have emergency blankets, canteens, rope, paracord bracelets, lighter wrapped in duct tape, and I've got a whistle/compass combo, my husband has the military compass in his pack as well as playing cards for boredom.

Clothes in each pack: 2 T-shirts, 2 bandanas, 1 buff, 3 pairs of socks, sports bra (obviously this is just in mine lol), camo jacket and pants, fleece vest (mine only)

First aid kit, etc: suture kit with alcohol prep pads, antiseptic wipes, variety of clamps, needles, pen light. Burn gel, moist wipes, water purification drops, iodine, large guaze pads, non stick gauze bandages, wrap, waterproof tape, bag balm, chapstick, tide, anti-diarhea tabs, allergy tabs, super glue, antibiotic cream, nail clippers, and tweezers. This is the main first aid kit and it's in one of the medium pouches attached to my bag, the small pouch attached to my husband's bag holds a smaller version of this kit.

Crank radio/flashlight combo with USB port in husband's pack, each of us have a regular flashlight with spare batteries as well. Husband has a tomahawk and a couple lightweight books on wilderness survival and edible wild plants, I've got a hatchet and throwing spikes. I've also got a dive knife with sheath to hang around my neck under my jacket as backup and we each have a knife with sheath to hang on our shoulder straps. His is a Cold Steel, mine a Kabar.

We've ordered our hand guns from the local military supply store but still have some things we need to get...rifles, another hand gun each, a bow, machetes, underarmour, mummy style sleeping bags, ponchos, and of course as much ammo as we can carry. That should just about do it for the packs besides some small tradeable items and the couple things we still need for the first aid kit. Next step will be to reinforce the RV as much as possible then complete our renavations on it (it's an older model that we've slowly been gutting and redesigning). We've ripped out the main bed over the truck cab and that section has become an entertainment center/major storage area. The dinette in the back doubles as our bed and has great space under the the seats for storage. The couch has storage under it as well and once we leave Maine the furnace will be removed opening up yet more storage space. It's truly amazing what you can fit in a 22 ft RV :lol: , just have to be creative and use every available inch! By the end of the summer this will be one lean mean BOV that just also happens to be where we live :D

Edited to add pictures (thanks majorhavoc!! :D ) This is just my pack, will add hubby's another time...
