Howdy! Thank you for taking the time to look at my pack and giving me suggestions.

 

:)

 

I wish I'd talked more about the molle pack. My mail is forwarded and it's in transit(I hope) but basically I'm using the side pack as a general emergency/hiking/get home bag, and the molle assault pack is the extension to a 3 day setup.

 

The molle pack is for water, food, clothes, night vision(indulge me) and a little more ammo, maybe a 9mm pistol if I have access to one. I've got winter hiking socks and another pair of white socks till I get some summer ones. For clothes, I'm getting a cotton/polyester thermal top and pants (each is around a pound), lightweight hiking waterproofish shirt and convertable shorts/pants from REI, gloves, and a longsleeve workshirt.

 

Clothes weigh a ton, so if I should have time I want to change out of my bluejeans/tshirt ensemble and put on the outrageously priced space fabric hiking gear. That stuff is bomb. I also keep a jacket in the trunk of my car and my work boots(light and comfortable for hiking) with the pack.

 

I'll dump any clothing I don't need asap, as well as the 9mm ammo if I don't have one with me.

 

I'm trying to keep the pack down to around 25 pounds or so. I've got a case of water in the trunk, so I'll put as much in there as I think I can carry and fill the aluminum bottle up(should I have time).

 

I want to have half a dozen MREs or so in the pack, and the cool thing is if I have to I can just molle an extender pack to the outside if I need more room.

 

Even if I run a little heavy(water is 2lbs/qt, and you need 3 per day) I'm not super worried about it, as food and water will get used up quick.

 

There's just no way around it, if I want to bring enough food/water for 3 days, I'm looking at 18 lbs of water plus food, which is just under 2lbs/MRE.

 

I gotta save every bit that I can.

 

Oh! and speaking of which, good idea about the face masks. I'll add one to the side pack. I keep a full face respirator in the trunk, I'll put it in the molle pack when I get it. It won't filter NBC but its good enough for commercial car painting, so it'll be OK for about anything I need it for.

 

Just in case I need to paint a car as I bug out :)

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the 2011 BOB Competition. We'll try and do another one in 2012. To the top 3 who got the most overall votes, you will be contacted this month with the information you need to claim your prizes (and the information we need from you as well). To everyone else, we'll make sure you receive some benefits as well since you all did a fantastic job and helped everyone along in their prepping and learning about how a functional Bug-Out-Bag should be configured.

 

Thanks!
