I bought this bag from a friend for only $40 he never even used it.

http://www.dragogear.com/products/tactical-rifle-cases/36-double-gun-case.html

It seems very rugged, but I only bought it to turn it into a B.O.B.

I was successful. I managed to put everything I would need to survive for about 1-2 weeks with only necessities and a rifle for defense
5-Sets of clothing
1-Fire starter
1-Compass
1-Small medkit
1-Small gun cleaning kit
1-Survival 6 in fixed blade knife
1-2 person tent
2-Emergency blankets
1-Portable water filtration device
Enough food for a little over a week,
My Rifle and 250 rounds

Any necessity I seem to be missing?

I feel like I'm missing something.

A camp hatched, most underated tool you'll ever carry. Will cut you firewood, build your shelter and possibly save your life when the ammo runs out....

I'd also add a crank radio, nice to have a little news from the outside world when your hiding out.

Yeah, that's why all the clothing is camouflage - it hides the stains! Drag yourself through a river once a week and you not only wash your clothes but bathe, too! No good woodsman needs a change of clothes!

Seriously, I have to second the hatchet idea. While it doesn't have to be huge, a dedicated chopping tool makes fire and shelter building go much quicker and with less effort (Read: Less calories burned and less food needed to refuel). You may also want a whistle or mirror for signalling - wasting ammo is not acceptable for noise-making in a SHTF scenario.

Also remember that most experts say pants in a BOB should not be denim. Rip stop wool blends are rugged, insulatory, but take only a few hours to dry. denim can take days to dry in the sun. Consider also Fire Hose Jeans if doing a lot of heavy duty backwoods work.

One way to do limited wardrobe is to have less of the heavy duty clothing and more of the stuff that is thinner and likely to wear out. For example:

2 pairs of pants
3 shirts
4 underwear
6 pairs of socks
2 pairs broken-in hiking boots (NEVER use new!)
2 belts/suspenders
Windbreaker/Waterproof jacket
(One of each item is worn)

This is about half the size that most people carry, but it allows for changes, layering for cold, daily changes of socks (very important when travelling on your feet), extra belt for tourniquet, strapping, holding windbreaker down during storm, etc and even a spare set of boots. Since BOB is only to get you to your next cache, this wardrobe is perfect for a week or even two getting to your next stop.

When loading a BOB, remember the old adage, "Ounces are pounds, pounds are pain." EVERY piece must be evaluated and if an ounce can be lost without sacrificing survivability, it goes. Do you need a box of 500 matches to make a dozen fires? Even if planning for Murphy and his Laws to accompany you, 50 matches would suffice two weeks. Flint and steel would be better, adding maybe 10 NATO lifeboat matches for dire emergencies (injured, pouring rain, need fire immediately for signalling, etc.).

I live in new England the weather here can completely change in a matter of an hour.

Can be sunny and 70° then only 20 mins later pouring rain and 40°.

That's why I have 5 outfits to layer in cold weather or change clothes after getting drenched plus our winter is 7-8 months of the year gotta be prepared for my environment.

1 set of cloths and ill be dead in a matter of days won't make it to my destination without extra clothing.

But on a serious note u never know when u might meet a nice women while bugging out gotta look good for the ladies!
