bacpacboy recently updated his day hike kit and made a little video to share with his Cub Scout Pack, so I thought I'd share here. He's carried an evolving pack since he was big enough, and this kit he built this PSK/FAK on his own, to meet his Pack requirements and earn his Camping badge and Green Star. It's light enough that he doesn't mind carrying it, and he's got his bases covered with gear that he knows how to use. He can also break it down further, into a smaller PSK for those times when he doesn't want or need to carry his full day kit. (i.e. scouting around camp, short hikes, the few hot days we get, etc.)

That's a day pack not a BOB!

This gear is the foundation of his BOB. His BOB, which is in a bigger pack, (35L + 10L, I believe) currently has dry bags holding thermal long underwear and a change of clothes, sleeping bag and pads (foam pad & self-inflating 3/4 Thermarest) wool blanket, hygiene kit, secondary water bottle, Wet Fire tabs, 1-man tent, more food, teddy bear, etc. and it has enough room in it to put this smaller day pack inside. So, the more he uses this kit, the more familiar his BOB will be to him when we practice with it and if he ever needs it in an emergency. ;) He uses this pack a lot, and I try to give him an opportunity to practice his skills every time we're out, whether it be for fire, shelter, water, cooking, etc, so he's familiar with every piece of gear he carries. He also practices with his BOB on several camping trips - usually including a good hike into camp - over the course of the year.

The weight of this (these) kit(s) is just about right for him but his full BOB load is too heavy, IMO, so we're working on lightening him up. It's an interesting challenge as a parent when the child becomes eagerly quasi-independent and starts having input into and carrying their own gear. Mom and Dad (and other helpful souls, like the Southern Ontario ZS Chapter) help him by carrying some of his gear on tough hikes, and together, we whittle it down a little bit after every trip. :)

Without further babbling from me, here's a look inside:

Front Pocket: *All this goes into a small surplus ammo pouch to use as a PSK when he doesn't want to bring his full pack
safety lanyard (squeeze LEDs and a multi-function whistle with magnifying glass, button compass and thermometer) *He wears this on his body
SAK Camper *The sheath clips to his belt and he's working in a lanyard for the knife
ferro rod (Gerber BG)
emergency poncho
bandana
LED glowstick
booboo kit (with signal mirror, gauze pads, bandaids, wipes, polysporin, tweezers, and duct tape)
LED headlamp
mini BIC *in a metal case with the child-proof thingy removed

Mesh Side Pockets:
garbage bags *This goes into his mini PSK when he leaves his pack behind

Small Bottom Pocket: *This stuff goes into his mini PSK when he leaves his pack behind
Frontier filter straw
lip balm (with SPF)
LED flashlight
snap chem light

Main Pocket:
poncho
bag-o-warmth (flo orange fleece hat & scarf, wool gloves, merino wool socks, bandana, SOL emergency bivvy)
trail marker tape
clear plastic drop sheet
paracord ( 3 X 10 ft, braided, secured with ranger band)
canteen kit (canteen, cup, stove & foil) *This with his mini PSK when he leaves his pack behind
*There are often a few Esbit tabs in here too
pocket fishing kit
Altoid's tin fire kit with dry tinder and storm-proof matches (secured with ranger bands and duct tape) *This goes into his mini PSK when he leaves his pack behind
chemical hand warmers
bag-o-chow (LMF spork and usually KD, oatmeal, granola/Cliff bars, pepperoni sticks, dried fruit, candy, hot chocolate, Kool Aid/Tang drink crystals, juice box, etc.)

*Food is becoming more important as he moves into puberty and is constantly eating! ;)

No navigation?

He is learning to use a map and compass, but he isn't good at it. We often use map and compass when we're out, and we ALWAYS practice landmarking when out and about. He's got a simple Silva compass in a water-tight map case, that we load with local maps when we go out. He's also got a navigation kit in his BOB, but we've taught him to hug a tree if he gets lost or injured.

The on-going Evolution!

*He's overstocked with lights (he's got more, with extra batteries in his BOB) but he's still a little afraid of the dark, so if he ever has to Hug a Tree at the end of the day they'll be welcome. He carries them and doesn't complain, so I don't argue, just like I don't when he bungee cords his Teddy to his pack and brings his Nerf gun with him. Gotta keep it fun for him. ;)

The next thing on his wish list is his own hatchet or folding saw. (Sounds like a great 11th B-day present to me!) That will likely be a summer project this year, along with a new packable fishing pole. It's also about the time of year to add in bug and sun protection.

I added this MOLLE panel to the waist belt on my BOB. Adds some padding to the belt and holds magazine holsters.
Image
It looks funny here because I slid the other side of the belt all the way back to hols it up for the picture.

Ok. So my BOB is more of a Bug out Vest/backpack/belt :p

What you have to understand is that I'm a Security Officer so I have a dutybelt in the car or in the apartment so I have added this to the kit.



I'll start with the belt.

Image

1. 2 heavy duty 20" zipties
2. Handcuffkey on a keyholder with my bloodtype
3. Maglite D 4 cell
4. Wuoxun radio. China stuff. I use it at work, but I own several myself.
5. Trauma pack, mouth to mouth cover and a small bag of latex gloves(they ended up under the flap)
6. S&W Handcuffs
7. Retractable Baton (Funfact: They are actually illegal in Norway, but as a security officer on patrol in a high risk area we got dispensation to wear them)
8. small UV flashlight. Why? It's cool. 8-)
9. LAPG gloves
10. Blackhawk Dutybelt

Next up is the backpack:

Image

1. Wool socks packed in mylar. (The ONE thing i HATE is being wet on my feet. So I've taken extra measures to insure their dryness)
2. 1 pair of 5.11 pants. Not sure what model, I have several.
3. Long wool underpants
4. Wool shirt, long arms.
5. Blackhawk underarmor
6. Condor Summit Zero. (Will swap that for Condor Summit when winter sneaks up. Not actually IN the backpack. I just wear it or have it in my car all the time.)
7. NATO jumper, wool. Former uniform at work.
8. 5.11 2014 hat
9. clean pair of undies
10. Oakley SI gloves
11. 5.11 belt
12. Noname ebay backpack. acually qiute allright with some modification.

Ok, so that's the clothes I have in the backpack. The pack looks small on the picture but I can stuff a surprising amount of stuff in there!


Next: Hygiene and food prep

Image

1. 450g. can of gas. 4h burntime on max setting
2. The stove. Screw on.
3. Mylarpacked toiletpaper
4. Water purification tablets
5. Wipes
6. Handheaters (You snap a small metal plate and something in the bag crystallizes(or something) and generates heat)
7. 500NOK (80 dollars ish) packed in mylar (Yes, this is food! Don't really know why I placed that there.. :p )
8. 2 sets of fork and knife
9. 2 new lighters
10. 4 plastic bags(For whatever)
11. Simple shaving kit with a small tube of cream
12. Small bottle of shampoo
13. Small handsoap
14. Toothbrush and small tube of toothcream


By now you must have guessed that I really like mylar.


Next picture is also content of the backpack.

Image

1. 1 full box of painkillers.
2. Ducttape
3. 3 rolls of electrical tape
4. Prestige polarized sunglasses
5. Noname wristwatch. Black NATOstrap
6. Dustmask FFP2S
7. Combined Carbine, knife, screwdriver(star and flat) and bottleopener(WOAAAH!! :clownshoes: ) Funny little thing I got off ebay for $5 or something. The knife is actually quite sharp!
8. 1 extra plastic carbine
9. Pad with pen for writing
10. Sewing kitt
11. Shoe polish (I already have the brush in the side pocket of my pants. Don't see the need to add an extra in the BOB)



Ok, now over to the vest.

Image


This is a PANTAC RAV vest. It's not paraclete, but it's just as good. Believe me, I've had both. The vest has no armor as of this moment.
1. Heavy duty fast release clips for the backpack
2. 3L camelbak
3. Medic pouch
4. Utility pouch
5. 3x double m4 magazine pouches. (I don't have a rifle, but hey, if shit REALLY hits the fan, I can probably find a few just lying around :p I can also use them for other stuff if needed)
6. Utility pouch
7. Shotgun shell holder. Holds about 18 shells in total.
8. m4 mag pouch used as a radio pouch.
9. Bowman PTT
10. Double 9mm mag pouch. Used for flashlight at the moment.

Next picture, content of the vest.

1. Wool beanie
2. Basejumping helmet(Why? Why not? ) If you check the side of the helmet I have an attached part. That's the bottom part of another ultrafire flashlight. The top part is misplaced.
3. Condor cap
4. Batteries: 8 D-cell, 6 AA, 12 AAA, 2 extra batteries for the flashlight. Going to pack them in Mylar when I get more of the right size bags.

6. 2 Wuoxun KG-UVD1P radioes.
7. Bowman headset

22. Second pair of S&W handcuffs
23. Scissors
24. 2x Lighters
25. Lockpicks(That I actually know how to use. I would hate getting locked out of the cabin if I left the keys at home, or get locked out of the car when time is of the essence. So no, they are not for B&E)
26. Noname watch, striped NATO strap
27. Flint & steel


Not in picture over but in the ones below: 4 20" heavy duty zipties, camelbak, a few carabiners



And that's it.

As you can see, the backpack fits quite well inside the vest and can be carried like that which makes it quite optimal for bugging out.

The best part of this kit is that it works in environments from insane heat to well below zero with only a few item swaps. And it's not even heavy! Because of the vest the load is distributed pretty well.


A few things I'm thinking about adding:
A small can of lighter fluid.
Some kindling and a few small pieces of tyri(fatwood)
A camping kettle with a large opening at the top(So I can put things inside it)
Some storm matches in a small box (Now that I've stopped smoking I don't carry a lighter anymore. Could be nice to have something extra in the BOB)
A laminated copy of my drivers license, passport and birth certificate.
Maybe invest in a handheld GPS
Knife sharpening stone(I have NO idea what this is called in English)
Foldable handsaw ( I have one, I just don't know how useful if would be considering I have the machetes)
Rain poncho. My jackets are waterproof, my vest is not.
Raincover for the backpack
Camonet 2x2m I have it, but it's so large even when packed. And I don't know when I could ever need it..
A tarp for improv shelter. Also quite large when packed. Only need this during summer. In winter I can build my own shelter.
Collapsible water container.
Emergency flares


Added 4th Sep. 2014
Raincover for the backpack
A tarp for improv shelter. 185x250cm (Not as big and bulky as I thought it would be)
Some storm matches in mylar
2 bigger flint and steel kits
A small one hand chopping axe
30m of paracord
Small pelican case(No Idea what I'll put in it tho)




I'm going to experiment a little with some stuff on my camping trips this fall, so I might change half of this by winter :p







And of course I forgot a few things:

Jervenduk, a really awesome sleepingbag type thing. I have presonally used the Thermo Extreme in -35C without a tent or a sleeping pad. It was actually quite how inside the bag. Fastened under the backpack. Almost the size of my jacket.

My food. I have just been on a camping trip so I'm fresh out of the selfheating packs. Going to buy new ones tomorrow. Similar to American MRE I think.

Frying pan. I lost my old one on the mentioned camping trip. Also buying a new one tomorrow and one extra just for the BOB.

My two coldsteel machetes. I forgot to add them in the pictures, but they are stored in the backpanel of the vest until I need to add them to my belt.

My knife. Handmade handle(By me) and the blade is made by a local blacksmith. The sheet is also made by me. Will add a picture when I get back up to the cabin and get it!

Map and compass. Duuuh.

A few small mylar bags of coffee. 8 servings in total.

Shemag, OD.


Edit: And I forgot to mention that I go through the pack every Sunday. Clean and change the water in the camelbak, check the 7 day weather forecast in case I need to add some items, check that all the electrical items work and are charged. Stuff like that.
That's why I don't have any water bottles on the list. The 3L in the camelbak is enough to keep me well hydrated for the first 48h. After that I'll find water and purify it.

Lots of great packs & gear here. One thing I don't see enough of, that I would recommend to everyone is the life straw. For those with families, I'd highly recommend one for each person. I used mine extensively in Borneo Indonesia, and was the only guy in my group that didn't get sick. Also, geez what's with all the blades!? I believe in redundancy when it comes to fire starting equipment but some of you guys really plan on carrying around 30 freakin knives? I know this is a gear thread so I'll post my kit in a few minutes

This message was received 17 days ago and we have not gotten a transmission from him since.... It is believed he was attacked by a zombie and could not defend himself because he didn't have enough knives.


End Transmission...........

Shit. I forget what that next thing is. Might be my 2nd BOAT...mmm...maybe?
Other items detailed below.

Image

Travel toothbrush and toothpaste
Charmin on the go TP
Soap, tissues, and wet wipes
Handkerchief
First Aid snivel kit: band aids, gauze pads, etc.

Image

P38 can opener
Mini Bic lighter
12 or so feet of paracord
Firestarter and hacksaw blade

This last ditch survival kit actually rides in a utility pocket of my chest rig, so even if I have to ditch my backpack I have these few essentials.

Image

TASK (Take A Shit Kit): in a Kifaru pullout, rides inside the XTL
Full roll TP
Moist wipes
Hand sanitizer

Image

Hennessey Hammock (Explorer Asym Zip) with rain fly and snake skins, rides in Back Pocket

Image

Food module. 3 MRE's (vegetarian), and 2 Mountain House granola things.

Image

Z-Mat. Rides on the bottom of my pack in a Pod. I got this for free, so I replaced my Ridgerest for one reason: this stores flatter so my BOB will sit upright on the ground. Sort of. Usually.

Image

Off the shelf FAK, added some Kerlix and medical tape and a bottle of Ibuprofen.
Rides in a 2qt/Utility on the outside of my pack for fast access. NEED TO ADD RED ID STRAP.
I don't feel like inventorying contents right now, but this is something I need feedback on. Will address in First Aid forum.

Image

The other 2qt/Utility holds my MSR Pocket Rocket, Titan Kettle, Snow Peak Ti spork, 2 fuel bottles, and a lighter.

Image

Pendleton wool blanket. This occupies the sleeping bag compartment in my BOB, allowing me to properly store my sleeping bag non-compressed. If I have time to swap 'em out I will; if not, this will keep me warm.

Image

ICE Tactical Hardshell. Basically a Canadian company's MultiCam Gore-Tex before everybody made 'em. I paid the cool kid premium to have one first. I like it. Lives in a Claymore on the back of my pack for quick access in case of sudden downpour.

Image

BDUs in MultiCam, with boonie hat. So I can impersonate Army personnel.

Image

Polypros.
