I always have a buck 110, a classic leatherman, and a bic lighter in my pockets. Always. I have a bag with a steel cup, a solo stove, poncho, emergency blanket, first aid kit, life straw, 550 cord, tinder, a flashlight and more bic lighters, extra batteries, a fishing kit, fixed blade knife, folding saw, and a scotch eyed auger. There is room in the bag for an MRE or two, an outside pocket for a water bottle, and you can stuff a rolled wool blanket in the handles. My boys have similar setups. From there I break down into 3 daypacks. One with food. One with tarps and other shelter items. One with nothing but medical gear. If we are short handed, I have a pack frame and can strap and carry all three myself. My wife will have her hands full with two girls. I seriously doubt we will ever load up and head out carrying it all, but every bit of it is used regularly except the medical gear, so we know it all works. In my mind, if we are bugging out we have done something horribly wrong, or things have gone totally sideways and even solid preparation isn’t going to assure much.
