  • 72 hr bag checklist

    Could I get some feedback on a packing list for a 72 hour bag. It will be going into an internal frame ruck with a removable patrol pack and has attachments for ALICE gear but MOLLE will work as well.

    My apologies if this thread has already been run.

    I go further than 72 hrs.
    I told the wife that if help don't come within 72 hrs we may need to pack up to a water source or whatever.
    In my lumpy chair

          Too Much to carry

          Too much to carry and you forgot headlamp, plastic pags, sutures, bug dope(vitamin type), thermal underalls, water filter, mirror, 1000' braided fishine line (better than paracord and lighter). The snake bite kit really doesn't work. An over under .22/.410 is better for survival. Drop the mess kit and use the metal cup. Drop the cleaning kit and get a boresnake. Drop the face mask and use your bandannas. Substitute the woll socks for high quality wicking thermal socks (wool takes forever to dry) and they are bulky. One quality poncho is better than two. A frog gig is better than an fork kit and can be used to take small game. The gask mask won't last for over four hours and they are hard to keep sealed, a better choice is good over the mouth and nose carbon filter masks (lighter/more compact). Drop the tent posts (fabricate if/when needed). Match box and strike anywhare matches are really nice to have. Lifeboat matches are also good to have.
          Consider a quality medium size tomahawk, braided snares with one way latch, hand throw fishing net, dark glasses, walking stick with spear point, pocket telescope, 10' x 10' roll of black visquene, 15' of plastic tubeing. Your boots are very important but don't forget light canvas shoes while drying your boots.

            I've been involved with wilderness search and rescue for 20 years and the 72 hour bag is no stranger to me.

            Let me go thru the list of things I carry in my 72 hour bag.

            Trioxane (3 bars)
            Blastmatch (flint and steel)
            bic lighter
            canteen with attached cup and stove (military surplus)
            change of socks
            First aid kit with meds (aspirin, pepto tabs, antacids ETC)
            2 space blankets
            3 MRES and snacks (nuts, hard candy)
            notebook
            pencil wrapped in duct tape
            20" 550 cord
            frontier 20 gallon survival straw
            clothing depending on the weather
            ziplock bags
            contractor trash bag
            full tang knife
            eye protection

            you can get the full list of equipment that SAR teams carry by go to

            http://www.nasar.org/files/education...ST_11_2004.pdf

            and download the list. I only have all that stuff in my pack if i'm going to a testing site but for searching the above list is what I carry all in a East German Army assault pack.

            I try to use each item for more the one purpose like the 2 space blankets can be turned into a sleeping bag very easy or be used for a tarp or water collector for example.

            Thanks for reading
