    Here's mine, it's a work in progress. Got the bag as a reward at work, figured I should pack it with some decent stuff. I have it stashed with survival/medical gear, I work as a paramedic so that explains the emphasis on medical supplies.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Outside pouches:
    Sam Splint
    2 x cold packs
    2 x hot packs
    Bottle of rubbing alcohol
    Bottle of hydrogen peroxide
    Gerber EZ-Out folding knife
    2 x lighters
    Streamlight 4AA LED flashlight
    ~20 medical gloves
    Small notepad
    2 x black ink pens
    Sharpie
    Condoms (be prepared!)
    Nalgene-esque water bottle
    Survival kit (Ziploc bag filled with a knockoff Swiss Army knife, survival whistle, cheapo flashlight, 2X AA batteries, survival blanket, poncho, 2 x small plastic baggies, combination survival whistle/signaling mirror)

    Inside main pouch:
    Trauma dressing
    Adult bag valve mask
    3 x adult oropharyngeal airways
    Safety glasses
    Trauma shears
    Co-Flex cohesive bandage
    4 x sterile gauze 4x4's
    4 x Kerlix adhesive bandages
    2 x triangular bandages
    Disposable penlight
    1" transparent 3M tape
    1" cloth tape

    Feel free to post your own bag and what's in it. I realize that I'm heavy on the medical side and light on the survival side. I plan on adding stuff like a change of clothes, hand warmers, snacks, etc.

    I'm not much into the bug out bag stuff. Realistically if something happens it will probably be a natural disaster and there will probably be no better place to be than home if you're still in the area at all. That looks like a good bag to keep in the car though. I travel a decent amount and try to have some basic stuff in the car in case of earthquake, tornado, car failure, etc.

    Since I don't think I'll really need a bag, I have a hurricane kit. I guess that's close. :dunno: It's a container that has:

    5 gallons of water
    Canned food
    Manual can opener
    emergency radio
    batteries
    flashlights
    duct tape
    clear shower curtains (tarps)
    DEET
    Candles with matches in plastic container
    Small thing of bleach
    Toilet paper/paper towels
    Garbage bags
    Gatorade powder
    First aid kit, gauze, bandages, tweezers, aspirin, imodium, benadryl, etc

    Just off the top of my head. If I need to evacuate it's just going in the back of the truck with the rest of my stuff.

    do you have food or water in there? I'd suggest thinking about adding about a short day's worth of less-perishable goods, plus a couple bottles of water (more, maybe a CamelBak bladder, depending on your climate if it's warmer there).

    And is this more a get-home bag or is it truly a "get the hell out of Dodge" bag? 'cause if it's the latter, I hope you have a bug-out location close by.
    If it's the former, you're probably overpacking on the meds, unless you live 100 miles from work and expect to do EMS calls on the way home.


    Just my $0.03 (inflation's a bitch)

    I've built a BOB, but it's really just a get home bag that goes in the jeep. I need to rebuild it, and add some more survival related material. 3 days without water 30 days without food...

    Mine has mostly clothes I can change into if I get stuck in the snow or whatever. There's a flashlight and knife and some 9mm in there too but I usually have those on me most of the time anyway.

    I could probably use some medical stuff in it but my car is in the shop now.
