My current system is divided between three things. Vest, fanny pack, core kit. My mindset is do not want to go into my pack except at camp so I probably carry more than I should on my person. Working so far.
My vest; 6 pockets of goodies to keep around.
Bottom left: Pair of glowsticks and my headlamp. The lamp is inside a bag with it\'s batteries.
2 safety pins are pinned to the outside of the pocket.
Middle left:; water purification tabs and a magnesium flint steel kit, butane lighter, and waterproof case full of matches. .
Top left has One pocket up I have my map pack and pinned to the zipper is a compass. Pocket holds a local map and a state map.
Right bottom has: about 10 feet of paracord
Right middle is a mini pocket that fits a tiny candle and pack of regular matches Plastic wrapped.
Right top holds Trail mix and has a multitool pinned to it.
I wear a fanny pack:
It has 2 pockets and two outer water bottle that are just over a pint apiece.
Inner pocket has 4 large size snickers bars, life straw, and an emergency sleeping SOL sleeping bag.
Outer pocket has two glow sticks. And a mirror.
Knife and wood saw to go immediately on my belt. All the food, and several more water bottles/future containers wrapped in duck tape. The hatchet, a complete change of clothes, med kit, and the tarp.
Outer pockets hold my core fire kit with emergency tinder (vaseline soaked magnesium infused cotton balls) , some tp, a bag of varying cordage, a hard canteen, a plastic box (which can hold water or whatever)
That covers most of it I can think of without raiding it and doing a inventory. Sure I\'ve forgotten something.
