Lynx deodorant, 'nuff said. :p

Nice kit, lot of redundancies in there though hah! I personally don't mind redundancies as long as they're light and don't take up too much room - in that case, the more the merrier!

One thing I'm going to get myself from this is a bandana!

Where did you get your pry bar from? Wasn't that made by some dude on the forums?

I made that myself... Just bought a mini prybar from B&Q, can't remember how much it was, cut the curly end off with a dremel and cord wrapped it...

Here's a pic of the same one modified a little better than mine...

On the bag itself are attached a red and a white nite-lights and some mil-com locking karabs. I've left my fire pouch out as it normally sits on my belt (it's a leather round pellet pouch).

***Got lots of ideas from Wayland's bag - thanks Gary!***

Methinks the bushcraft stores will be getting some orders in this weekend?

Nice set up Steve... We should get together and have a 'bag arranging day'..!!! If i'm honest I only use less than half the stuff i've got, but I've got it, I love it and i'm not getting rid of it!

Nice guys. Here's mine :D (couldn't resist)

I switch out either my UKPK or MM friction Folder and sometimes use the same sigg bottle and cup as Mick (modded a little with lipguard and wicking on cup a la Shug, using minibull design gear :))
Gloves are in the back behind the waistband. I always have the bina keyring with me and can remove house and car keys etc independently using titanium McGizmo clips :cool:. On keyring then:-
Fire steel
cash stash
torch
key tool
gaffer tape
paracord
matchsafe containing tinder and matches
mini prybar
space pen with gaffer tape
whistle
compass
peanut lighter
can opener
spydie bug
glass breaker/seatbelt cutter
mini grapple hook
tweezers
nail clippers
key light


Front compartment:-
paracord (lots)
light stick
lighter
lenser torch and headband
tinder (fatwood, vaseline cotton and stirrers from McD's)
toothbrush
hot choc
steritabs
mint cake
seven seas emergency ration biscuits (something like that)
tick remover
SAK
talc squirter
four sides of honey stove
morse code reminder (trying to learn)


In the Vargo Ti cup:-
greenheat
brew kit
fire making
sometimes put trangia in there for use with honey


Main compartment:-
Dutch poncho from Kev at Endicott's (no affiliation etc)
milbank bag
msr ground hog stakes
tarp grip clips
hand warmers
cable ties
survival/hunting kit from group buy packs into sealed unit


Side pockets:-
foil blanket (no useful effect as an insulator blanket but will reflect heat and light from a fire)
hand gel
tape
sos flashing red light
first aid kit
starflash signaling mirror
compass
matches
waterproof notepad and pencil
sharpening stone

Other thing I always have with me is Iphone4 with gps, os maps etc. Usually in an xs exped dry bag on my person.
Think I've just about got everything covered should I leave my sabre pack at camp and not get back to it etc.
Any thoughts welcome and hope this may give rise to some discussion and improvement.
Cheers.

He he. I decided I needed an Exotac striker and matchcap for my EDC keyring after doing this breakdown to replace the silver matchsafe (fastening mechanism is unreliable) and red firesteel (too bulky).



Ooooh, tactical:cool:

Some nice set ups there, I imagine though its only overkill if you dont use a lot of it (Except 1st Aid of course!)

Id rather ensure I had everything I needed personally.

Enjoy mate. It's as much the logical working out of covering all the bases with as much multipurpose, preferably shiny :) kit as possible with as few redundancies as actually playing with the toys for me.
Post up your efforts so I can review my options again :)
