This is an outdoor survival pack I made up to go along with my BOB bag here.


Unlike my BOB bag it is ment to be more long term. It tries to focus on what the other bag lacks. Shelter, fire, warmth, food, hunting and tools.

It is a bit heavy coming in at 43lbs/19.5kg. I figure in a perfect world I would throw it in the back of my van. If I had to carry it myself I could always get to a secluded location and drop gear I don't need for a specific emergency. Since I am the largest/strongest in the family I will take the most weight. That way other family members can pack only clothing, a sleeping bag, light food, water bottle, silverware and a tin cup.

Step 1: Fire and Warmer Clothing

I started with some warm layers and an extra set of clothes.

There are a lot of wooded areas where I live. I will rely on wood for cooking fuel. The Esbit stove is only an emergency backup.

<p>Stellar Work! Good job</p>
Oh I see the paracord XD
also, the more complete each persons bag is the better off all will be. What if you are seperated? I'm apparently double tough. at 35 smoking heavily for 22 years I can still go forever and anywhere carrying 100+ pounds. kids obviously can't. but they need their own everything. Just smaller and less.
Really good! I would add about 50-100 feet of para cord
