I sure could use some help with my kit. Work in progress but household 6 has put out a frago saying the rooms must be cleaned up.

The bag shown below is my bag while my wifes bag is meant to cover the basics in case we are separated, but also compliment each other.

Another note, I plan to buy some land in Kentucky. Nothing off grid or anything, but it will have some self-sustainable living conditions. When everything is in order, I plan to finish the load plan of my Vehicle which is meant to get us to the land in Kentucky, as we will not live there until retirement, SHTF, or the twice a year get-away. Therefore, the vehicle will have 20 gals of fuel (using a tow hitch carrier so that fuel is outside), 20 gallons of water, 2-4 weeks worth of food, clothes, tools, better shelter, and a comprehensive first aid bag (similar to Paragons, luckily my wife is an ICU nurse, and I have some medical training from the military). The bug out bags will also go into the vehicle, but should cover the basics in case dismount is necessary. Basically, my bug out plan is to get me to Kentucky or be versatile enough to adapt to multiple situations.

Image
My bag (Top down, left to right)
Eberlestock V69 Destroyer Bag
Walther P99 AS .40S&W
E-tool
Jet Boil
2 x 2liter Platypus filled water
MSR Water filter
3 x 1200 Cal Mayday bars
ACU Sleeping bag with patrol bag
Blow up sleeping mat
550 Cord
SOG Pup Knife
Vitamin C (used for supplement and making iodine treated water taste better)
Iodine (used for cleaning wounds and/or water treatment)
9 x Cliff bars (240 Cal each)
9 Honey Peanut Butter (190 Cal Each)
Modified IFAK
Ranger Beads (pace counter)
Map of Maryland area (need to add maps between Me and Kentucky)
Compass
9mm & 5.56 Cleaning Kit (need to make sure that .300 blackout and .40 cal is in this kit)
Gerber Multi Tool
Solar Panel AA & USB Battery Charger (I would be a fool to not utilize cell towers if it was still working)
AA Rechargeable Batteries (Pre-Charged out of the box)
Signal Mirror (inside Solar Bat Charger)
2 x Chem Lights
Yaesu FT-60r (have AA battery pack)
Multi Eat Tool
Strike Tool
Strike Anywhere Matches
Flash Light (Uses a single AA Battery)
Dried Cranberrys (I can't believe they expire this year)
Light Rain jackets and Rain Pants
Bic lighter (not in pic, was on desk)
Multi-Cam Poncho (underneath)
I also forgot the collapsible water bucket that was stuck inside the bag.


Modified IFAK upside down :(
Image

Things this kit is missing:
I would like a better stove option, preferably alcohol base, or even as a second option. I have a bottle of Smirnoff which I think is great for disinfectant (both wounds and water), trade, fuel for fire, or even to just help relax from a stressful situation.
Probably another fuel can for the jet boil along with some Mountain Series food options since I probably wont eat those maydays.
Hygiene Kit
More clothes, specifically socks. Socks need to be replaced once a day. In Zip lock bags. Problem is everytime I buy boot socks for the bag, I end up using them for my daily clothes. But I'll buy some more and won't do that.
Petroleum Jelly Cotton Balls as that would help get a fire started
More Ammo
Smoke Grenade because I want one!... no seriously, I see multiuses here, especially if I'm resorting to backpack due to floods and aerial evac is an option... or other uses.
Eye Pro (because I can't find the pair I bought before my last TDY trip)
5hr energy or coffee grounds... maybe
Maps between my current area and my destination as well as the destination of a secondary plan)
Will look into life straw
Gloves

Originally, my clothes were Multi Cam and my pack was straight out of my military gear... I then realized I would rather look like a contractor than a Soldier, so I went with Columbia style gear and got the Eblerstock pack, where as my wife's is a Gregory pack. I have two Multi-Cam sets (since that was the orginal plan) which are now just part of the bags (instead of initially wearing them).

I also can't add too much without starting to take away. The bag shown is currently 40lbs on the dot. I don't want to go over that.

Any help greatly appreciated. I will listen to all feedback and will post a more comprehensive list when the several kits are in order.

This is a nice set up, its a lot like my current set up I use for backpacking. I haven't been able to post my latest set up. My current set up is the result of several backpacking trips. I would like to say I have spotted one redundancy that I have learned while backpacking and you could save some weight and money. I used the canister stove, they are cool. As far as weight goes and usability they are not cool. Get an alcohol stove. They are great and very easy to get fuel for while trekking. I can refuel my simple alcohol stove at any convenient store, its far lighter and bomb proof. The solar charger may be OK for a bugout, I have one and I'm up in the air on bringing it backpacking, a back up lith-ion charger will keep my stuff working until I get near a power supply. For a bugout depending on conditions it could be a must have.

My advice: Go test it. If you want a real good experience testing it go to amicalola falls in Georgia
Start at the southern terminus trail, backpack north until you get to Blood mountain, go to the bottom of this mountain. There is a place there called the walasi yi center (I think that's what its called) Go in that store.
I think you will have gone 30+ miles at this point. If your going to quit, throw your shoes in the tree and sell your gear to the center. You need a new hobby (just kidding but a lot of people quit there). If not, keep going. It sounds like crazy advice, but your designing a bag for very harsh times. The trek I have described is difficult, in the store at the center you can weigh your gear and trade stuff for better stuff. you can also resupply on food, and there are cabins down the road with kitchens and showers you can stay in cheap. Shuttles can transport you back to amicalola from there if you quit there. Otherwise take your pack (hopefully improved at the center after a rigorous test) and move out from a rest at the cabins. Try to make it to Hiawassi and that's a good bit of backpacking, you should then have a pack full of gear you can count on. If you cant perform a trek like this, I suggest bugging "in" in a situation. The Walasi yi center is a great place to get gear, have gear repaired, and rest and talk to people. They have the lightest and strongest stuff, and they see all kinds of muddy tired hungry backpackers so they have tons of knowledge about the sport.
That's the best advice I can give you to develop your kit, and your confidence. other than loose those emergency rations those things are horrible and horrible. If you want the best food to carry on your back? its easy, just take the total calories and divide that by the weight of the total package its in. For example Knor pasta sides alfredo has 480 calories total, 240 calories per serving. 2 servings per pack, pack weighs 4.4 OZs that's about 109 calories per ounce. That's good, a single serving dannon yogert has 80 calories but weighs 6 ozs that's 13 calories per oz. Not good. You want to check out food that keeps for a while that gives you at least 100 calories per ounce. Some ultra light backpackers state it should be 130 calories per ounce, but those people don't seem to care about taste.
Knowing this rule of thumb however will keep food that is too heavy off your back.

Wow nice setup! I gotta ask, how do you like the Snugpak Ionosphere? I'm in the market for a good single person tent and that is one of my options.

Thanks, a lot has changed since then actually. It's a great 1 man tent for the size and weight. I just threw it on the scale in complete form, no weight shedding, meaning all the stakes, patch kit, stuff sack, and it was 47 ounces. You can shed quite a bit from that making it a very manageable weight. The interior size is amazing but awkward. I am 6'3" so I can't sit up in it which I dislike, but I can bring my pack into the tent with me and use it for a pillow and my feet don't touch the bottom of the inner tent wall. It has held up very well over nearly 3.5 years that I've owned it and I would replace it if something happened to it without a doubt.

Hello everyone. I recently acquired a new Canadian Forces Style (until 2009 when they went to a modular vest system) tac vest. This tac vest is my medium duty vest (I have a heavier modular vest and some lighter webbed gear) and would be used on it's own for day forays outside of the BOL, into the wilderness, etc. Would also be worn in conjunction with a ruck sack for bug out purposes. It is intended to hold enough basic gear to survive roughly for a period of time.
