Hey Everyone,

So I just posted the details of my BOB on PreparedSociety.com here:

http://www.preparedsociety.com/bug-out-bag/the-haus-22.html

Pretty cool site if you didn't know about it. Anyone who goes camping, or spends any time away from the comfort of home, should have one put together. I take mine even on small trips, just in case. ;)

I keep a few bags in my jeep JIC i have to travel on short notice for work. I run a regional disaster response team on top of doing surveillances that sometimes do not have much advance notice.

I like to keep my gear modular, clothes, medical, work related gear, etc. I use smaller bags and have one that I can combine them into if needed. Kinda like using colored stuffsacks in larger backpacks. My clothes bag is one that is a backpack that can unzip and hang where it's all compartmentalized. Makes it easy in field applications.

I'm pretty partial to Maxpedition in general. I've some 5.11 and Condor bags, but Max I find has bags more tailored to spec applications. My normal runabout bags are either their Sitka or Kodiac.

Welcome to the forum! Sounds like your very prepared. Do you have a pack mule to carry all that stuff? Lol.

Bug out bags, the never ending evolution! I have 5 bags that are stocked up with all the essentials. I also have smaller packs and waist packs or butt packs. The reason I said " The never ending evolution " is because they keep changing and evolving. I constantly add things or replace or even eliminate things.

So true. That's why when it comes to a BOB there isn't a magic formula for making one or a perfect BOB simply because each BOB is tailored to the individual and their environment.

yes just about lol even then if you are carrying one on you you would get asked a lot of question because you are carrying a knife in the first place. it is ilegal to have flip knifes or butterfly knifes
