I thought I'd throw up some pics of my go bag, a S.O. Tech Mission Go Bag, and see if I could elicit some thoughts about the concept of maintaining a go bag and learn what you guys are doing.
My bag is a work-in-process and by no means have I arrived at its final configuration. For example, the shown Zulu Gear Chaos admin pouch I've attached is much too big for what I'm after. I want a smaller pouch in which I can carry a few AK related tools and maybe some spare batteries, boot laces etc. The little Maxpedition pocket is a better alternative.
The next picture shows the bag's size as compared to a twenty round Hungarian tanker magazine. See also the world's greatest bandoleer in the background. A couple Tacos attached to the front of the bag might be a possibility too:
The main section contains four draw string pouches that will accommodate at least two thirty round AK mags each:
Looks like I can carry many more mags, empty or full, a first-aid kit, binoculars, etc in the space between the four draw string pouches:
In the bag's outside compartment, there is room for lunch, Depends, Melba toast, or whatever. There is a Velcro loop panel in the outer compartment to which something can be attached. I have another Mission Go Bag in which I have attached a three mag pistol shingle. Plenty of room in this compartment.
If you guys have some thoughts, ideas or pics to share, have at it.
Thanks for looking.
Mine is just an old gym bag with pretty much the same shit in it except for some MRE's. Beans, bullets, bandages.
I use the old military ALICE Pack, and I can carry everything I need and then some. Go check out the survival section. There is a section that has examples of what other people are doing and detailed lists of what they have in their bag.
My go bag is my Eberlestock Gunslinger II pack. Carries everything I need, including an additional rifle if I so desire.
