Hi all! A friend of mine told me to check out this contest and now I'm digging the website. Here's my entry. I'm in so cal, and my bag is designed with the idea of a get home bag in case of unrest. It doubles as a general emergency bag, kept in the trunk of my car.

 

I still need to get things, like pepper spray, a compass, waterproof paper and spacey pen, water tablets, and don't laugh, inflatable neck pillow and eye cover, quickclot, carey and co. knot cards,filter straw, glacier gel blister and burn dressing, lockpicks, etc.

 

I'm also adding a Mollie II assault pack with some bulkier items like MREs, emergency bars, blanket, water, and some extra clothes.

 

My philosophy is that since it's less obtusive, I'm more likely to grab the fake-maxpedition bag by UTG and have it with me when I need it. I also like that all the things I'm likely to need are at hand, rather than having to remove a backpack to reach them. Things like a discreet holster pocket that I'm getting pepper spray for, but which could hold subcompact or compact pistols. (FYI I twisted off the zipper pulls as they're noisy and put paracord on instead)(the Maxpedition bag lacks mollie straps on the bottom or the drawstring closure like a sack for the main compartment. The Max is definitely made better, but this fit the bill for me)

 

I should mention I go nuts with the grip tape becuase it adheres and reseals so well. I use it on all bottles to keep them from coming open, on my carabiners to silence them, on my flahlight to stop it from accidentally turning on with a twist, and anywhere else I possibly can, evidentally. I may have to paracord the waterbottle to the pack to hold it still, but I'll worry about that when the time comes. Same with paracording the bag to my belt to stop movement, or using the velcro straps on the back side of it.

Very nice gear. I lust after the Kukri! One suggestion though...consider labeling the unmarked tubes with pills in them. Could be someone helping you would not know what they were. Just a thought.

 

 

very good call. as many times as ive looked at 81's pics i didnt catch that at all.

Greetings.

Great idea for a contest! It’s been good to see how others prepare their bug-out bags. I’ve gotten a number of good ideas. To keep the sharing of information going, I wanted to offer my bug-out bag for inspection.

 

[ATTACH=CONFIG]201[/ATTACH]

CLOTHING, WEAPONS, BAGS, ETC.

-- Large digital camouflage backpack with aluminum frame. Integrated water-resistant, draw-string liners.

-- Foam mat. Of course if there is enough time, I’ll throw a sleeping bag into the Jeep to use with this. But if all I have is an emergency survival bag/blanket, the foam mat will be a nice luxury.

-- Emergency survival bag/blanket.

-- Camouflage rain poncho.

-- Water-proof packing bag (upper left corner). All of my clothing is packed in this to ensure I always have access to dry clothing.

-- Cargo pants x1

-- T-shits, neutral colors x2

-- Underwear x2

-- Wool socks x2 pair

-- Light-weight work gloves x1 pair

-- Insulated leather gloves x1 pair

-- Boots (well broken-in, of course)

-- Winter coat

-- Boonie hat

-- Handkerchief. Multiple uses, including dust mask, bandana, sling, tourniquet, etc.

-- Small sewing kit.

-- Camouflage load-bearing vest with 2 canteen covers, 2 rifle ammo pouches, 2 pistol ammo pouches, and holster

-- Canteens x2

-- Primary weapon: Smith & Wesson M&P15 with EOtech holographic sight and Surefire weapons light

-- Primary weapon ammo: 180 rounds in 6 Magpul magazines

-- Secondary weapon: Sig Sauer Scorpion .45 1911 with night sights

-- Secondary weapon ammo: 2 standard magazines, 1 extended magazine

** Note: I have a weapons carry permit for my state with reciprocity to most neighboring states. Depending on the situation, I may leave the AR15 in my safe at home and/or take my Mossberg M590A1 shotgun in its sling if I will be mostly on foot as it would appear ‘less menacing’ to others. The situation will dictate.

 

[ATTACH=CONFIG]202[/ATTACH]

GENERAL SURVIVAL SUPPLIES

-- Rifle cleaning kit. Not a necessity, but its weight adds little to my bag.

-- Paracord. Indispensible in any B.O.B.

-- Knife/bayonet. Mounts onto my Mossberg M590A1 shotgun.

-- Waterproof matches in gasket-sealed container

-- Gasket-sealed box containing extra cash, credit cards, social security card, and duplicate ID

-- Folding shovel.

-- Compact rolls of toilet paper x2

-- Camouflage duct tape.

-- Compact mess kit in bag

-- Camp towel

-- Katadyn pocket water filter. Filters up to 13,000 gallons of water (more than I will hopefully ever need)

-- Paper pad with pen and Sharpie (sealed in zip-lock bag)

-- Flashlight (batteries stored separately until needed)

-- Gerber pocket saw

-- GI can openers (I have no cans with me, but c’mon you can’t have a B.O.B. without a GI can opener)

-- Essential toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, fresh wipes).

-- 5-gal water carrier. Although I have 2 canteens for personal water storage, my Katadyn allows me to purify more water than I’ll need. This water carrier would allow me to filter water and dispense it for other evacuees, etc. as a good gesture.

-- MRE’s x 7

 

[ATTACH=CONFIG]203[/ATTACH]

AID BAG

It goes without saying that everyone should have a limited first aid kit in their B.O.B. However, as a practicing physician, I may need further resources to aid others in my party, etc.

-- Small camouflage bag. This bag buckles onto my larger B.O.B., allowing me to carry it separately as needed.

-- Plano storage box. This is essential in organizing the smaller medical items.

-- Petroleum gauze x2. Used for small burns or its wrapper can be used in an open pneumothorax (“sucking chest wound”) as a 3-sided dressing.

-- Small gauze pad x4

-- Large gauze pad x4

-- Large abdominal gauze pad x1

-- Steri-strips. Used for small wound or incision closure.

-- Tegaderm x2. Used to cover wounds or keep gauze in place.

-- ACE wrap x2

-- Gauze rolls x4

-- Band-aids x10

-- Purell hand gel

-- Multiple suture packets (both non-absorbable and absorbable of varying types). The needle driver is in field surgical kit.

-- Acetaminophen (Tylenol) x1 bottle. Pain reliever and fever reducer.

-- Ibuprofen (Motrin) x1 bottle. Anti-inflammatory, pain reliever, and fever reducer.

-- Loperamide (Imodium A-D) x1 package. Anti-diarrheal medication.

-- Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) x1 package. Anti-itch, anti-allergy, and sleep aid.

-- Hydrocortisone x 1 tube. Topical corticosteroid with multiple applications.

-- Triple antibiotic ointment x1 tube. Used for cuts, etc. Note: some people may have a contact dermatitis (skin allergy) to one of the antibiotics found in the ointment. Petroleum jelly is recommended for most cuts, etc. as it is often sufficient and does not have the risk of contact dermatitis (however, my fiancée stole my small jar of Vaseline from my aid bag….I need to get it replaced).

-- Lip balm x1 tube.

-- Bandage tape (paper tape, silk tape, plastic tape)

-- Moleskin. This should be a ‘must-have’ item in any B.O.B. as blisters will impede your travel if you’re evacuating on foot.

-- Sterile latex gloves x1 pair.

-- Non-sterile nitrile examination gloves x5 pair.

-- QuikClot x1 package

-- Surgical kit. Don’t buy one unless you know how to use the instruments. It could do more harm than good.

-- SAM splint x1. Used to splint fractures.

-- Bandage shears. Used to cut bandages and remove clothing to expose wounds.

-- Betadine solution. An antiseptic solution used in cleaning around wounds and as a skin preparation for surgery.

-- Insect spray

-- Bulb suction. Used for clearing secretions from newborns’ airways

-- Curved hemostat x2 (one is missing from the pic)

-- Ringed forceps x1

-- Digital thermometer

-- Littman stethoscope (my back-up stethoscope)

-- Handkerchief

** Needed items: large-gauge needle for a needle decompression of a tension pneumothorax and a tourniquet.

** Note: I have no chronic medical conditions which would be adversely affected by being without my medications for a few weeks. Otherwise, I would have packed a week’s supply of them.

 

[ATTACH=CONFIG]204[/ATTACH]

MY COMPLETE B.O.B. (sans weapons)

The aid bag is shown buckled to the back of the backpack. It is surprisingly light (estimated weight 35 lb). The above B.O.B. is augmented by my ‘get home bag’ in my vehicle which contains a compass, maps of surrounding states, survival water pouches, survival food rations, a 2-man tent, a Gerber survival knife, fire starter, Leatherman multi-tool, more duct tape, a tarp, a Gen4 Glock 21 .45 pistol with 4 loaded magazines, and a holster.

 

Take care!

Well, I've decided to copy and paste everyone's bag set ups into the bag part of my current Survival Supply List and modify it with things I like, cutting out duplications of things I already have, and replacing things which are better than mine on others's lists. :)

Very nice, Lonster!

 

Can anyone recommend a good pair of wire cutters that are BOB suitable and will cut through a wire fence?

 

Oh FWIWI I'm adding some Ammonia Inhalant(4.15 shipped at amazon). Supposed to be very good to wake you up. "It is a painful odor that brings tears to the eyes, clears the nasal pathway, pisses you off and boosts strength and determination." says one review.

 

Since I used to work nights, I'm slightly obsessed with sleep. If I don't get enough rest I feel bad and my reasoning skills are nil. I figure if I'm ever in a situation where I'll have to get some rest in uncomfortable circumstances, I'll be stressed out and worried, and possibly having to sleep during the daytime and travel at night. So I threw a few things in there to make resting and waking a bit easier perhaps.

I'm a medical doctor (MD) currently completing my last year of family medicine residency. I have areas of interest in emergency medicine, obstetrics, and preventive care.

 

maybe you would be willing to go to the MED section and give us basic ideas on a Bug Out med kit, and how to take care of the normal injuries one can expect to get or come across in the field.

I'll personally stay away from ammonia. It attacks the mucus membranes which is why you get that sensation. Probably safe enough in small PPM(parts per million) I'm sure, especially in a survival only use. I'll just run some caffeine pills and vitamin B complex (or Five Hour Energy).

 

Oh, and this guy gave me this list once for a min-max long term needs for survival. It's pretty neat and worth a look. http://www.thepreparednessblog.com/capability-checklist/

Yeah, it's pretty decent. I wish more sites would organize a 'supply list page' and then link to the articles and stores directly from the list after each item. Kind of like:

 

Weapons:

 

AR-15: Bravo Company Manufacturing RECCE 14 Mod 0

 

 

Obviously one would want these links to open in new tabs so persons could stay on the list and look at other tabs to read and purchase items. Heck, I think I may even set up a page to do that now.

 

By clicking on the 'AR-15' you would link to the http://survivalcache.com/the-best-survival-rifle-carbine-ar15/ page and by clicking on the 'Bravo Company Manufacturing RECCE 14 Mod 0' you would link to http://bravocompanymfg.com/specification/bcm_recce_145.php.

I'm sorry if this is a little rough, I'm still figuring out how to post this.

 

So, I have two bags. One carries a medical kit and bare essentials, and the other carries snivel gear, like sleeping bags, extra clothes and an extra set of survival gear. I will talk most about the smaller bag (MOLLE 3 day assault pack). I have things in it with the idea in mind that I need to grab it quickly.

NOTE: I replenish the water every week.

 

post-1298-1385149767003_thumb.jpg

SMALLER BAG:

1 double roll of toilet paper (explanation unnecessary)

 

Bandana (see article: http://survivalcache.com/30-uses-for-a-bandana/ )

my extra boots (in case I can't grab my normal pair)

 

magnesium fire starter (it lasts longer than matches)

Deodorant (no need to smell bad, but only until I make some woods soap)

 

One pair of woodland BDUs (for obvious reasons)

 

toothbrush/ toothpaste (cavities aren't fun when you're trying to hunt)

 

Duct tape (explanation unneeded)

 

rewindable flashlight (batteries are NOT forever)

Chocolate (yummy)

 

2 candles (edible)

 

Three emergency blankets (to reflect fire's heat) or to keep (barely) warm

 

calculator

 

2 days food (1 day over what I need to get to my Bug out point; not pictured)

 

2 shirts and 2 pairs of pants

 

2 pistol belts (one OD the other desert)

 

paracord braclet ( I found my 100 ft of it today)

 

flight sunglasses (see: http://survivalcache.com/survival-sunglasses/

 

 

the gold bag in the main picture doesn't fit into the BOB, but sits next to it. It holds the shinken (live blade Japanese sword) I cut with every week (so I'm not someone who bought a $35 sword and never even tried it out)

 

 

The bigger bag (large Alice pack) has a basic survival kit (knife, matches, duct tape, whistle, signal mirror, flashlight, chocolate) a weeks worth of clothes (not pictured) 4 days food/ 3 days water (again, not pictured) a sleeping bag, a small pillow, a tool kit, more toilet paper, snivel gear, etc. I would stow this in a vehicle, it is pretty heavy.

That's all I have currently, though I'm hoping to get some knives/hatchets and mosquito netting and maybe a crossbow soon to add to it.

I'm sorry if this is a little rough, I'm still figuring out how to post this.

 

So, I have two bags. One carries a medical kit and bare essentials, and the other carries snivel gear, like sleeping bags, extra clothes and an extra set of survival gear. I will talk most about the smaller bag (MOLLE 3 day assault pack). I have things in it with the idea in mind that I need to grab it quickly.

NOTE: I replenish the water every week.

SMALLER BAG:

1 double roll of toilet paper (explanation unnecessary)

 

Bandana (see article: http://survivalcache.com/30-uses-for-a-bandana/ )

 

Camelbak (for storing water and other drinkable fluids)

 

water purification tablets

 

large red cross first aid kit (full sized trauma kit made for natural disasters and other catastrophes for several people)

 

3 quart canteens (military w/ belt holder thingies) used when I don't have the BOB on)

 

Boonie cap (woodland camo; for hiding from MZBs and for hunting)

 

my extra boots (in case I can't grab my normal pair)

 

magnesium fire starter (it lasts longer than matches)

 

little red tube thingie with a small signal mirror, a compass, some flint, a whistle, and waterproof matches

 

Deodorant (no need to smell bad, but only until I make some woods soap)

 

One pair of woodland BDUs (for obvious reasons)

 

toothbrush/ toothpaste (cavities aren't fun when you're trying to hunt)

 

Duct tape (explanation unneeded)

 

rewindable flashlight (batteries are NOT forever)

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
