You sir are brilliant!
The stove and pot holder are almost exactly like the ones I have just designed!
Great minds think alike!

Good Instructable. I would suggest, though, swapping out the flashlight for a headlamp. It's smaller, lighter, and keeps your hands free. Also, it points light where you need it -- wherever you're looking.

I'd also be a little concerned about the bent out tabs on the stove's screen -- they look pretty sharp.

That lensatic compass is nice, but I bet it weighs a pound. Consider a plastic baseplate compass.

The bladder's a good idea, but that will last a day under hard walking. Consider something like a Sawyer Mini water filter, which can be put inline with the hydration hose. Now, you can remove or replace the filter and your bladder can be filled with clean or contaminated water.

Beef up your emergency food. Include couscous (a small pasta that can be made by just steeping in boiling water,) bullion, rock candy, and instant oatmeal. If this is a SHTF/bugout bag, you should have three days' supply of food. If it's a dayhike bag, at least a day.

I have that hydration pack. It's worked fine for me as a day hike pack or summit bag in warm weather.

The tent is usually extremely solid but it was pouring when I was setting it up so I didn't get it the right height before I started staking it out:(

Anyone have any ideas about what I could add or take out??????
