What's in your BOB (Bug out Bag)?

Post by MasterChief » Sat Jan 13, 2018 7:36 am

Thought I'd start this topic to get some feedback from the members.

here's a list of questions to consider... :D
  • What's in your bug out bag?
  • Do you have more than 1 bag type INCH, BOB etc.
  • Do you just have a bucket/s with the grea at home as you don't plan to Bug out?
  • What do you need to add to your bug out bag that you haven't got yet?
  • What do you recommend others MUST have in their BOB's?

I would suggest that if you are in a populated area eg. Suburban or even a town you might appreciate bugging out due to fatigue you will suffer if a case of societal break down and lawlessness.Keep in mind bolted doors,boarded windows and 10,000 rounds of ammunition won't be much good considering most would want to evacuate premises with signs of fire or smoke and the roof is easy access aswell.And as far as ammunition goes good luck with average suburb having minimum 20,000 population how many suburbs do you need to travel through to get out of dodge.Brush up on bush survival skills and head for the least popular areas the more inhospitable the less fleeing population of dangerous desperate people.

1 aluminum water bottle
2 tins pocket size 1with dryer flint 1with wood shaving wet use only.
4 fero rods
1 bag of cotton wool
Cheese cloth
1 sas survival manual book
1 wild food plants book
1 medical kit with added pain killers ×2 pkts and 3 different types antibiotics. Emergency blankets x 2
1 container magna plasm
1 syphon hose
1 roll strong cordage
1 pkt M and L cable ties
1 roll of electrical tape 1 of duct tape

1 container glucose emergency use only
1pkt of each seed
Okra
Tomato
Corn
Basil
Oregano
Onion
Garlic
2 large thick garbage bags
Small powerful enough binoculars
1 sleeping bag.
Thats just off top of my head probably missed some things without going through it . But all soft items except sleeping bag is packed in back for comfort and support. Medical kit ,cooking equipment ,bag with knives ,saws,stone and sharpeners and gidgey prongs,rolls of wire,tape ,cordage, syphon hose rat traps etc in main compartment. Seeds , books in separate resealable bags in main outside large pocket compartment. Other nic nacs on side pockets. Sleeping bag roll on top.
Weighs 13kg and i use my waist straps aswell. Find it very comfortable even over distances.I also have waist bag with extra items which weighs about 3 kilo with water.And a awesome bow and arrow bag with a recurve and long bow couple of spare strings for each 24 broad heads and 57 arrows and a container of peanut butter easy to carry with optional carry handle and shoulder strap. I also have small backpack with 1 spare change of shoes and clothing and a couple of bars of 40 % dark chocolate which I'll probably wear on front. Depending on situation. Those 4 bags always with me when I go bush and my vehicle has tie downs ,hats ,25L water,2 more good never used tarps,small survival pack and couple of other toys.Hope that gives some ideas but none of this is much help without practice and knowledge. And only 50% of it is really necessary if you know what, where and how.Practice and patience is the key.I probably have to much comfort crap myself, but the more you have the harder it will be in a long-term issue. Learn to adjust .

I don't make recommendations for other people's gear. My equipment will last me a lifetime living in the wilderness, I personally don't see the point in 72 hour & 24 hour kits, but then that is a personal choice. When I walk out the door, I may not know if I will be returning at all, so I carry all I need for long term.
My Equipment List.
.62 cal/20 gauge flintlock fusil. 42 inch barrel.
.70 caliber smoothbore flintlock pistol.
Gun tools and spare lock parts.
Shot pouch and contents.
Leather drawstring pouch of .60 caliber ball (in knapsack).
Powder horn.
Ball mould and swan shot mould.
5 Gunpowder wallets
Lead ladle.
Butcher/Hunting knife.
Legging knife.
Clasp knife.
Tomahawk.
Fire bag.
Tinderbox.
Belt pouch.
Fishing tackle in brass container.
Two brass snares.
Roll of brass snare wire.
Knapsack.
Scrip.
Market Wallet.
Tin Cup.
Kettle.
Water filter bags (cotton & linen bags).
Medical pouch.
Housewife.
Piece of soap and a broken ivory comb.
Dried foods in bags.
Wooden spoon.
Compass.
Whet stone.
Small metal file.
Oilcloth.
One blanket (Monmouth cap, spare wool waistcoat and wool shirt rolled inside blanket).
Two glass saddle flasks.
Bottle of rum.
This is the equipment I carry now when going bush. One item I will change for a survival situation would be the water bottles. For a lighter pack I would be swapping the glass flasks for my lighter tin canteens.

My main pack/knapsack weighs 9kg.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less travelled by,
and that has made all the difference.
