What's in your bug-out bag? Here's mine, all packed reasonably neatly into a Maxpedition Pygmy Falcon II daypack. The photos are a little dark, since I opted not to use a flash to avoid glare. Another gallery shows my tent, tarp and sleep system components. I've since added a bigger Falcon II bug-out bag with a Nemo Gogo bivy-tent, which has its own gallery.

Each thumbnail below links to a much larger image of about 1.3 MB in size.

Fully packed. The sleep and shelter system is in the lower stuff-sack and is shown elsewhere.

And yes, I can repack it all, too! The upper mesh bag has rain gear and a cheap air mattress.
