Mine is more of a get home bag. It will work as a BOB for a short duration emergency too. I have first aid supplies, including immodium and pain relievers, change of clothes, extra socks, Mountain House breakfast and dinner meals, a couple ways to start fire, a couple of survival blankets, flashlight, compact binos, lensatic compass, water filter and bottle, Mainstay food bars, and more.
One of the most adaptable things in my bag is a military casualty blanket. It is made tougher than a poncho with grommets on the edges and reflective mylar on one side. Dave Canterbury has made a video of an improvised shelter using one (or two?) of these.

If I were to rely on this as my go to BOB it would weigh more than I could comfortable carry with the ammo and food I would want to take. I would have to also carry extra for my petite wife who wouldn't be able to carry a heavy pack.

Pretty much what it is. It is the orange thing. Behind that under the bag itself is a sleeping bag rolled in a tarp.

For living well I need a Coffee pot, coffee, coffee cup, splenda, Bailies, Water, Bucket and filter, clean wool socks, couple of guns *(My guns rotate as I go to the range) and a lot of ammo and some snacks and quality toilet paper. For survival, all the other stuff that is mentioned for a bag. I'm not climbing Mt Everest so I just KISS. Resources are everywhere and out 25 miles beyond a urban area. Real estate signs make a nice shelter as do political signs. So many are plywood.

Pretty much the same as everyone else, but also a canteen with a metal cup for cooking or boiling water. A stainless bowl for cooking or whatever. A tarp and paracord for shelter rather than a tent. A good machete. Fish hooks and line. A simple gun cleaning kit. And more paracord.

I keep a separate fanny pack that I also use for normal hunting. That helps keep weight down in the pack (and off the shoulders), and it lets me keep some things handy like a skinning knife, ammo, a poncho, and crackers. It also helps keep things organized.

It houses 36 oz water, 6 MREs, a substantial medical/surgical kit with Antibiotics, change of clothes, binoculars, 5-30rd mags of 5.56 m855 ss109 penetrators, 5-30rd mags of 5.56 MK 262 MOD 0, water purification tabs, magnesium fire starter, lighter, flashlight, multi-tool, solar blanket, OTIS cleaning kit, knives, paracord, electrical tape, duct tape, cr123 batteries, 2-33rd g17 mags and 2-19 rd g17 mags.

I think that's it.


I've also got a rucksack with more batteries, ammo, MREs, clothes and supplies.

I still do not feel 100% confidence in my prep.
