Wondered what you have in your B.O.B.s I am ALWAYS looking to improve/update mine.
I bought a bag from cheaper than dirt that is a duffle and backpack combo. It is duffle carry with flaps that velcro down over the backpack straps that keep them out of the way. Mine is black but they have it in an army digital camo color as well. BAG-178 - Leapers UTG Ranger Field Bag Army Digital 36x17x12" Heavy Duty PVC Waterproof Lining. I love it, it is easy to carry, and has lots of room and pockets. One thing people have commented on is that it does not have magazine compartments. I live in CA and thus do not have an AR as the only thing I would be able to get is a slaughtered version that is more work than my other potential SHTF rifle that will come with us; an SKS that is awesome IMO eats anything and I have a few ammo cans filled with clips ready to go.
I have some room in it and that is unacceptable to me
It contains thus far:
warm and cold weather set (no jackets) those will be carried or loaded into the car quickly
trashbags: for ponchos or any other multiple uses
knife and a multitool
duct tape: for EVERYTHING!
water purification filters
markers,pens, and paper
photocopies of important documents
some change and small bills
fire starting implements (waterproof matches, fuel cubes, striker flint)
various medications (ibuprofen, imodium AD, tylenol, advil etc.)
flashlight (considering removing this as I have a fenix PD-31 in my EDC, but maybe something with standard batteries is better)
Extra D cell batteries (maybe I will replace with some CR-123, lot smaller, and fit my EDC light)
ziploc bags of various sizes.
May have forgot some stuff, Ill check the bag and add as needed.
I also "plan" on being able to throw a camping box I keep in the garage into the car that has cooking/eating implements in it.
Have a gas can for the vehicle and case(s) of water to go as well.
I also will bring my firearms of various sizes and use. I have ammo boxes ready to be loaded into the vehicle. Of course all of this is assuming I can bring a vehicle. If not the plan is to load up a backpack with the ammo or use what room is left in the B.O.B.
Interested to see what you folks have in yours and any suggestions for improvement in your opinions.
Thanks in advance!
