I have several set ups all centered around one unit, my first line gear. mil belt w/ IFAK, 2 - 1 quart canteens (one with canteen cup), three day food stuff, ammo for primary and secondary weapons, general survival items (fire, water purification, shelter items)
this is just a basic run down, the rest of the set up depends on what i plan on doing. if i bug in then im going to have to do 24hr security/patrol in my neighborhood. might even eventualy have to get into 72hr recon/patrol for supplies. if i bug out, then expand the belt to a bag, hence, more food, better shelter, better cooking, better water purification ability. if it gets so bad that i wont be coming back to my home then i gather everything, all setups, and that becomes my I.N.C.H. bag.
my main things for my bags and set ups are:
and the knowledge to impliment them.
