This is what I am calling my Bug Out Loadout. The basic premise is only to take what I can fit in my bug out bag :)

 

When Z-Day happens for real I will just replace the 229 and the Mac 10 with a crowbar, hammer and some MRE's. :D

I love that idea and reading some of t'internet's conspiracy sites is simultaneously some of the most mind expanding verbiage and the most surreal comedy available. I've thought about it. Not zombies, the collapse of the US dollar. I wonder, would it be best to be prepared for as much as possible, or go as lightweight as possible? 

 

The thing about survival is that even a single night in a hastily made shelter and basically relying on a mylar blanket to retain body heat, while the ground, via damp insulation foliage, is sucking the heat out of you, is a 'kin nightmare. Unless you're in excellent physical condition, literally one cold damp night can take so much out of you that any advantage you gain in increased mobility, through carrying less, is more than lost by lack of energy...

 

Are you going to skirmish carrying your day pack?

No I probably won't wear it. I play pretty tight CQB and it will just get in the way.

 

I'm a bit of a zombie geek so it's just my way of expanding my role playing universe. I use the day pack for when I take the dog out for a long walk, sans airsoft stuff of course :D

 

I'm not actually a prepper but I do like to be prepared if I'm going to be out walking for a day. I have just ordered a Bear Grylls Compact multi tool to finish the emergency kit and I think I will get a cheap tarp and maybe a hammock to put in the bag too.

Yeah, on the few occasions I think about Scenario X, I feel a sense of security in having the gear I'd need :) like kevlar, SAPI plates, respirator & mil-spec filters... a sword ffs!

 

I think you should give skirmishing wearing it a go. See how well you can adapt. Push the role play...

 

Oh yeah, and you can get surplus DPM tarps on fleabay for about £20 usually.

Yeah I guess I should wear it. Will be going for civilian clothing including a body warmer to soak up the hits :D

Cheers for the tarp tip. Will look out for one. Or I might hold true to the civvy aspect and just get a typical garden tarp.

Garden tarps are heavier and not so fire resistant, mate. Plus army tarps can be press studded together in a way that keeps rain from leaking through, and they pack smaller. Something else you might be interested in is Czechoslovakian military surplus bedding roll with bivvi bag. It's a 3 layer system and cheap from a few peeps on fleabay. If you add a £10 civvi sleeping bag to it, it'd be good for 4 seasons. Well, with a foam mat anyway...

 

Oh yeah, tip on foam mats: you can spend a 'kin fortune on them, but what you get for the extra money over a £10 one isn't as much as you get from buying a really crap £5 summer type (that is frankly not much use on its own for anything) and gaffer taping (like duct tape but black, £5/roll) the two together along their edges. You could do the north face of the Eiger with one like that for £20...

Unfortunately that's as tight as it will get and I have a very high metabolism so tightly fitting my plate carrier is nigh on impossible.

In the nicest way possible, you sound like you're talking to us with a mouthful of cotton.

Got some nice gear though, better than I was using when I had two tones. I was using assault vests still.

I have the exact same issue as juni0r will attest. I've sold every plate carrier I've ever had as all were much too big, even my warrior dcs past its minimum setting by a few inches was still too big.

Its a royal pain in the arse, I've just ditched them all together now.

ha, similar problem here, my friends are all..."larger" than me so they wear vests and carriers fine but for me I had to find a "skinny-man" mod for the 6094A PC (only a chinese one by TMC) which required me to use a few cable ties and stuff, it was pretty annoying. even a Bulle chestrig was too big. I also have a viper molle belt which is also a little too large for me, but just a small bit.


It's ares, it'll be ok...

for 5 minutes :lol:

I'm 5'11" 93Kg so not exactly slim, but my RICAS isn't tight at its minimum. I've got it set pulled tighter by rearranging the way the bands tie inside the back, because I want it tight enough to help support my back. I suppose they must be made with wearing more underneath in mind, but I'd have thought that there aren't many soldiers who are as big as it can go at maximum size, whereas there must be plenty of people who could do with it smaller.

If you have a small build (as am i), Warrior RICAS Compacts should be small enough, but you could always try a belt rig if not? :)

 

Or hit the gym? :L

If you're a skinny guy like me, an Eagle Industries plate carrier with cummerbund might be what you're looking for. Or something similar at least, like a Flyye FAPC, the adjustment is different to other plate carriers that I've used before and it fits really skinny people :)

 

Fake ballistic plates in your carrier will help a lot, it tightens it up around the chest. I have thick foam in mine and it works great.

Im also on the skinny bastard wagon,at only 53 kilos and 176cm.My choice is either assault vests or belt webbing.I tried on some compact plate carriers & chest rigs and those things wobbled and made a right racket.The only things that fit me well are belt rigs and chicom vests :P
Hopefully the SMERSH webbing Im saving up for will fit me..
