Hocka, I guess I shouldn't have called them MRE's. We do have those too so that's why I generically called it that. Here's the size. It's flat and skinny.

What do y'all think about a bottle of multi vitamins ? I know it seems silly but without the right vitamins your screwed right? In the wild if you can't get all your vitamins and nutrients that'll help?

Yeah, some thermal "long johns" would be great. Wouldn't take up much room either. I got thermal socks in mine.

Zombie, that actually looks like it could be an entre pack FROM an MRE and that's the stuff everyone who has to carry them takes out -- half the carp goes in one pile and the edible stuff goes with you. I just hope u don't ever break one of those nails!

Multivitamins - ayup!

You can only carry so much water -- it's heavy. Be prepared to carry some, filter and purify more, hydrating yourself when able. In addition to a couple of small collapsible canteens, in my GHB/light BOB I keep a 2-gallon Stansport Water Bag. It only weighs a few ounces. Think of it as an inexpensive semi-disposeable short term solution to transport more water from where you can get it and to carry an emergency supply with you if necessary.

I like to break down everything into categories starting with the most important.

1. Water
2. Food
3. Shelter
4. Hygiene
5. Medical
6. Defense
7. Information
8. Entertainment

From there I add sub categories i.e. "A. Canteen" under the category of water. I also further divide subcategories such as listing a sharpener under the subcategory of "knife". That lets me keep up with what I have and helps point out all the little items that are easy to over look like a knife sharpener, cleaning kit for a rifle, and nail clippers for hygiene.

Think very hard about the items you list and all that goes with each item. You might list socks but socks alone aren't enough. You want clean dry socks to prevent hypothermia, trench foot, and/or some foot fungus. Now how are you going to ensure you have clean dry socks?

The danger in listing items this way is that it's easy to make a list of stuff so large that you couldn't possibly carry it all, or couldn't carry it far. Keep weight at an absolute minimum.

Just my .02
