Its a 5.11 tactical Rush 24 (http://www.511tactical.com/rush-24-backpack.html)

The 24 stands for the rough about of gear that you can pack to last you for 24 hours. You can get a rush 12 and rush 72. The 72 is huge though. You can pack a load of stuff in the rush 24.

Crackers would dry your mouth out too fast which is why I didnt pack any if water is limited
I have 3 ways to light fire, 2 storm proof match boxes, steel wool and a 9 volt battery and a fire steel
2 pairs of extra socks (look hard)
Rain coat and water proofs I have set out because I would be wearing them
Maps are there, I didnt want to put them on imgur so people would know where I lived
There is a rubbish bag there
I only need one torch, its bomb proof made for the military and I have chemlights as backups
I have bike inner tubes as part of a fire kit which can be used with a stick to stop major blood loss
Sugar is in the food and snacks :P under the chocolate bars are several sealed hiking meals
Don't drink tea or coffee
I think something else would kill me first before malnutrition or rotting teeth so everything else takes priority
I have fingerless gloves and leather working gloves.
As for books i have snow boots (hard to describe)
I did have a military canteen but I just like the sigg bottles

I'll get more tissues (a man gets lonely out in the wild)

There are only so many things I can take hiking with me so I had to cut out a few good things that you mentioned.

I started thinking about a bug out bag last year but never got round to doing anything about it. You're making me think about it again.. although I doubt it will ever come in useful and some of that shit's expensive.

Some of it is rather expensive but it will probably out live you. You can still go out camping or hiking with it, doesn't always have to be in a disaster. You dont need to pack or plan, just grab it and go and have an adventure. Also because it is bomb proof if you have kids you could hand that stuff down to them. Kids love camping.

Probably the most expensive things were the knife (£96), the bag (£88), compass (£40 but its the official compass that is supplied to the military so its bomb proof) and the torch (£40). I tend to buy a lost of my stuff as military/police gear that can take a beating so it is worth the extra price knowing that it can do everything you will need of it.

@fox good call about the painkillers, have some thrown in now

On the crackers, I'm talking about militairy grade "crackers" they will slow your digestion down.

Tootbrush/Tootpaste, it's a mental thing, brushing your teeth will make you feel good.

tea/coffee,
1. hot drinks will keep you warm when it's cold (Thermocan)
1.1. it will make you feel better
1.2. if you have a militairy grade sleeping bag, it will warm your body up and then you will warm up your sleeping bag.

vitamin pills maybe not the 1st 24 hour, but try finding vitamines without fruit. a lack of vitamin C will kill you.

2.0 why I would go for seperate sugar, you can add it to your drink giving you a short sugar boost. you cant add a mars bar to your drink.
2.1 Dextro, is more energizing takes less space then a regular mars bar

3.0 Socks, seal them watertight/ same hold for underwar etc. even if you bag is watertight. take extra bags with you so can keep it that way.

I have a old survival bag that I put inside the bag then pack everything into it then seal it up apart from essential items like the knife, bottle, snacks and military field dressings.

Oh that dextro stuff sounds really good. I will consider tooth brush and tooth paste :)

I don't have enough room for a full sleeping bag but I do have a survival bag, could throw the thermals on and all the clothes, make a small shelter off the ground and sleep in that. The really good thing about that knife is that you can chop down trees with it, its like a sharpened pry bar. It has been used by pilots to cut through aircraft fuselage, so far only one knife in the history of production has broken.

I have a whole bag of zip lock bags stuffed in the side, they are so handy.

Found some vitamins so they are added now. Keep the good ideas coming fox!

Leaves. That's what I did on exercise years ago!!. You also need to add a small mirror for emergency signalling. Unless you have the lid of a tin.

I had a go making a signalling mirror out of a sheet of aluminium, not amazing. I tried looking for some good ones online but I don't know much about them.

And the leaves worked ok? lol

Kleenex use it for everything, wipe your ass, clean your canteen etc. that's why more then 1 pack is needed

also, stuff like a militairy canteen, pio shovel with appropriate casing can be fitted on the backside of your backpack

I was actualy looking at some of the military collapsing shovels, they look like they could come in handy.

The glass butt plug is in my butt when this picture was being taken crap

The shovel work great and since you have a militairy bag you just clip it on.

Also get a Folding stove and solid fuel blocks!

How comfortable is all that to carry? The pack doesn't look great - would it be better using one with waist straps?

It's actually really comfortable. I have a friend that has one and he has loaded it up with 70+lbs of stuff and it was prefectly fine (he is a geologist and carried rocks in it after a hike). I have 21lbs worth in it and you really can't feel a thing.

That looks very similar to my old hiking backpack but without the molle and side pouches. I ended up carrying a trangia and everything else and it was a tonne weight lol.
