@LonewolfMcQuade,
I have this kit X 2, both whatever the situation dictates I believe in being over prepared.


#4

I agree! I have similar setup. I keep Some MRE’s in it as well.


#5

@LonewolfMcQuade,
What kind of MREs do you use what brand I just keep power bars in mine.


#6

I have a similar set up. Change of clothes, rain gear, IFAK, dry food, bottle water, plate carrier, AK74 with 7 loaded mags of 7N6 Ammo. Oh and a compass.

@switchpod,
I’m not in as good of shape as you guys are, I couldn’t hump that for very long, I try to keep it as light as possible!

@LonewolfMcQuade,
Thanks for the link👍


#10

I put wrong link up originally, I fixed it. It’s good stuff.i take them hunting, in go bags etc.


#11

31 lbs of gear. Minus ammo, and rifle, but 7N6 is very light. AK74 is 6.8 lbs.
I’m 6,2” 210 lbs, but it took a lot of time under weights “when you don’t cheat” to get there. Just do 1 thing every day and you’ll get there too. Just 1 thing till your low on breath and sweating for 45 minutes. That’s it.


#12

@switchpod,
How much is it with rifle and ammo?


#13

It gets a little challenging with age lol I’m 6’4 250lb. I’ll be turning 45 next week. I’ve changed my exercise routine the last couple of years. I quit doing the heavy stuff and replaced with a more balanced routine. 3 days a week with strength exercise & 3 days on the elliptical. Take the dog on a 2mile walk almost every evening. Doing shit just hurts longer now than 20 years ago lol


#14

45-46lbs on the high side.


#15

Im8 Year’s behind you Brother, and I’m on the elliptical now for the last 40 minutes. I do feel the pain though.


#16

@switchpod,
You’re a beast!


#17

I figure I can die doing it, or die talking about doing it. It’s my choice. It is hard. If it where easy everyone would do it.


#18

I’m 5ft 8in 170 lbs can still run and bench 300 lbs at 56. The trick is to not let yourself go in the first place.


#19

Somebody educate a moron… what exactly is a “72 hour get home bag” ? Does that mean SHTF and you’re out somewhere? If thats the case, I have my Glock 22 and my S&W 460 with less than 50 rounds of ammo. Some minimal medical supplies and a small amount of cash. I’m real damned resourceful though.

@KeithP,
If things go to hell in a handbasket and you have to walk out on foot you have some gear to get you to where you need to go for approximately 72 hrs.
