I've finished making a bug-out-bag (BOB). The black one is for 1 person containing the 5 "C"s of survival and more. The red one was store bought as a 4 person family emergency kit bag. They both weigh similar at 20 pounds even. I'm going to list most of what's in the black one, because it's a pretty good BOB. The following will cover each of the 5 "C"s, but it also has: 3-day food bar, 1st aid, radiation tablets, water purification tablets, a survival guide in ziplock, gloves, socks/boxers, crank flashlight, whistle, etc. 1) Combustion: magnesium fire starter 2) Cordage: 50' paracord 3) Container: cooking pot, stainless water bottle, canteen (both filled and included in the 20 pound weight) 4) Cutting tool: tomahawk, saw, shovel, knife w/sharpener, multi-tool 5) Cover: tarp (7' x 9'), poncho, thermal blanket, tent pegs The red bag has a good variety too with some duplications to the black bag, but that's OK.
