Bugout bags... What's in yours?

What do you use for bugout bags and what do you carry in them for supplies, also what quantities too... Looking for more ideas to add or how to change mine to make it better, others can benefit from this also

You need to state whereabouts you live and if you have family members to get the best input from the right people.

My entire bag setup changed when I had twins and we moved to a colder region.

I live in upstate NY right on the south east corner of lake Ontario, I am single so no family members that will be tagging along right now but if that ever changes I can add to my kit

Just curious what others have added that I may have missed or just never even thought about

Simple A.L.I.C.E. pack w/frame that I bought off Ebay. Rugged, durable and has plenty of compartments and ways to attach things.

Inside, let's see, the pack doubles as my primitive camping and BOB...

Tuna fish can stove and smaller cat food can stove. These are great since I'm too chea...er, frugal to spend the $5 on an esbit stove

Seriously, I like to be redundant in several areas such as making fire, knives, signalling, cordage and ways to cook/boil or sanitize water, lighting sources etc. So these are easily made and light.

First aid kit
Folding shovel
Several knives of various lenghts (I normally use Kabar, Mora and a attached a Gerber to the shoulder strap plus my normal Swiss Army and Spyderco folders)
Rain ponchos
Firesteel (several of these in various spots in pack, on my person, in knife sheath)
Magnesium block w/striker
Waterproof matches
Various tinder (cotton ball w/p-jelly, dryer lint from towels etc)
Various flashlights (LED as well as mini-mags and head lamp)
Sawyer filtration bottle (as well as some light weight aluminum and plastic types for additonal water storage) (also have 2% iodine as back up)
Whistle
Signal mirror
Various cordage (including 550 and some glow-in-the-dark for general camping use and some bungee cords)
Duct tape
Clothing differs depending on what the situation is going to be
Normal toiletry items
Cooking utensils and items
Tarp
Tent
Sleeping bag
Emergency blankets
Multi tool
Spare batteries
Food appropriate to the situation
Compass on my watch
My off-duty sidearm of course

Some other stuff but I'm drawing a blank at the moment.

That is just the BOB. I also have similar stuff in the vehicles for my GHB except stuff like tent and cooking stuff. Also, if I'm just doing a simple hike or bike ride I've got a small kit around the Mora (Cody) knife I wear with small first aid, flashlight, whistle, firesteel, cordage, tinder etc. All in a reflective, waterproof bag.

Reserved space for more time.

Also - how long is your pack intended to last you, and is it by foot or vehicle?

I asked a simple question and if you don't want to answer then fine just carry on and move along to the next thread instead of wasting our time here with your sarcastic and uninformative post

I have to consider both options, if I can use a vehicle then great but in the odd case that I am unable to I may have to go by foot so I have to tailor it to be used for both I guess... My pack is intended to last as long as possible but mainly for 72 hours without refilling or running low on supply

The bag is a Maxpedition Condor II. Inside is everything I'd need to spend a few nights at a hotel, on a friend's couch, in my car, in the woods, or in an alley.

First Aid
Shelter
Warmth
Water
Defense
Food

...Pretty much in that order.

I keep the bag small and mobile. The biggest I'd go is a Maxpedition Condor II. It has straps on the bottom to attach and additional smaller bag, which I keep packed with a change of sturdy clothes (paid off after apartment fire forced me out. I got dressed in the parking lot, armed myself, and carried on while my neighbors stood around wearing their pajamas wondering when they were going to be let back in) so that I don't waste weight and space in the bag with bulky clothing that I don't absolutely need. It's nice to be able to drop 10 lbs of pack and carry on if you have to. The backpack has the essentials, only what I'd need, and is supplemented by duffel bags with food, water, more clothes, winter clothes, a nice tent, etc. that would be very nice to have if camping out of the truck, but could do without if I had to leave it behind.

We need more information.

What time of year will you be bugging out? Summer, Fall etc

Where will you be going?

What supplies are at your final destination.

How long will it take you to get there?

What do you currently have in your bag?

A Bug list for FL in Summer might not work for you.

Personally, I use a camelback molle hydration vest, with an Ares combat-12 (iirc) pack that can attach/detach fairly quickly, allowing use of just the vest & bladder if desired.

Not to be vague, but the questions others asked above are important to address, even if not publicly. Your personal situation (location, likely distance from home, area type, family needs, etc) will dictate or influence a lot of things.

My comments from:
http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/show....php?t=1378834
Quote:
Me personally, I carry a GHB (get home bag) in the vehicle, which is sort of the opposite, yet sort of the same, as a bug-out bag. Opposite in that its job is to help me get to my home rather than away from it, but the same in that the requirements for either are very similar. I'd need clothing, tools, and other items for either. Simply all kept in a rubbermaid tote in my truck, along with another, similar tote with vehicle emergency gear (jumper cables, two strap, 120ac inverter, etc).

In the "ghb" tote (in addition to the backpack for actually carrying things if on foot), I carry good boots, extra boot socks (no telling what I'd be wearing at the time), change of rough clothes, insulated coveralls in the winter (just put them back in a couple weeks ago), hat, gloves, basic food centered on calories, ease of preparation (or lack of preparation) and some comfort (instant coffee mix etc), a battery powered am/fm/noaa radio with earphone, a middle-of-the-road gen-2 D-300 nightvision monocular, infrared flashlight, a PUR voyager water purifier, and a small, low-end garmin etrex gps. In addition to batteries being stored with (but not "in") those devices, due to my work I always have literally dozens more batteries that fit those devices (aaa, aa, cr-123 mostly) in my truck's toolbox as well. Also in the tote are lighters & other firestarters (including fresnel lens and magnesium/flint starter), old gerber multitool, couple emergency blankets, a ziploc bag with a half-dozen N95 masks, nylon twine, duct tape, all kinds of little things like that.

Aside from stuff in the tote, in the truck are also a regular good flashlight and leatherman supertool (in the glove box), a .45LC snubnose with ammo & speedloaders, spare ammo for my daily carry pistols, and an old M1 carbine with mags & ammo. I'm in the truck (an expedition actually) so much that I carry a case of bottled water in the back seat so I can just grab one when driving. So in addition to the water purifier in the ghb, I pretty much always have anywhere from a half-dozen to a couple dozen bottles right there in the truck. Basically, there's pretty much anything I'd need to "get me home" from wherever I happened to be, and whatever circumstance (ice storm, flood, terrorist incident, whatever) that I might find myself in, and that's the idea for me - get me home, or to my workplace (in another county), or our secondary location near family members - whichever is closer at the time.
This one's pretty good as well:
http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/show....php?t=1417466

This thread has a lot of info, as well as a "contents calculator" spreadsheet link in it, to help point out weak areas. Not everything will apply to everybody and every situation, but worth looking at.

You asked a question that has been asked hundreds of times.

Look at fireforged's join date and post count and compare it to yours.

Maybe he's got knowledge about this site you don't.

You may find his suggestion of doing a site search to be of value.

If he was presented as a respectful manner and treated me with respect then I would but he disrespected me and others who are just curious about our bags, if you don't have anything to contribute then carry on and don't post here... Thanks for the no help

Your comment is the reason why a lot of people avoid asking questions because of the smart remarks and sarcasm instead of a polite comment directing someone to the source of info to help them, very disrespectful and unacceptable
