BOB's for children...
Yes, yes, I know. This subject has been talked about time and time again, but I figured since LJ and I recently updated EJ's BOB bag, now would be a good time to touch on it again.
Recently, the three of us were at Cabela's looking for a gift for someone else and we ended up buying a bunch of stuff for ourselves. C'est la vie. Along with ammo and some zombie fudge from the general store, we bought a The North Face Sprout backpack in Arden Green/New Taupe Green. http://www.shoebuy.com/the-north-face-sprout/597755/1229417
Here are the contents:
- Flashlight/whistle multitool
- 10oz water bottle
- Food: Cheese crackers, applesauce, peanut butter, emergen-c drink mix, lollipop
- Glow stick
- Orange rain coat (along with the obvious use, the orange material can be used for visibility)
- Tooth brush/paste
- Antibacterial wipes
- Plastic utensils/napkins
- Picture of me and EJ, for identification purposes
- Clothes: Sweatshirt, underwear, socks
Keep in mind that:
1. Given the obvious restrictions of a 4 year old's strength, we want the weight of EJ's backpack to be kept at a minimum
2. EJ's BOB is a supplement to mine and LJ's. It's main purpose is to lighten the load for us, if only a little
3. EJ's is a minimalist's BOB. He's a man of few words, so his BOB should reflect that.
Who else is packing for a young child and what are you carrying?

No-Pack Survival Kit Strategy - Not a bad idea
I would carry a set up like this IN ADDITION TO a regular Bug Out Bag or other packed survival kit, though, rather than instead of it, to serve as a backup to assist you in the event that your main kit should be lost or damaged. It would also serve to keep your most commonly used items ready to hand, so that you don't necessarily have to stop and dig them out of your pack while you're on the move.
To accomplish the same end, you could perhaps carry the same sort of contents in the pockets and pouches of a single over-garment, like a long trench coat with a lot of pockets or a Tactical Vest or whatever. Rather than having all of your kit spread out across several different garments and accessories (or one particular pair of pants, as in this case), an over-garment would let you grab all your kit at once, no matter what other clothing you happen to be wearing at the time.

Belt pouch for BOB- what should it contain?
I've recently bought a leather belt pouch for in the event that whilst traveling, I have to ditch my BOB to run like hell. This way I don't have to lose absolutely everything.
I already have two knives and a multi-tool which I can attach to my belt. I'm just wondering what items would be most valuable whilst fitting into a pouch roughly 15cmx20cmx4cm
General survival equipment has came to mind, things like fire lighting, fishing line etc but I'm still indecisive.
Any help much appreciated.

What Type of bag would be best?
I'm 15 turning 16 and was just wondering what type of bag would be best for me? It has to be one I already have,
I have a DOE camping bag which carries a lot but is bulky and hard to run with
A school bag which is smaller but still strong which is easy to run and jump with
A hold-all which is huge but has no back-straps.
Which would you recommend? I can't go out and buy a proper bug out bag due to parents possibly thinking I was a nutcase.
What do you guys think would be best?

My BOB. What do you think?
-2 long sleeves
-2 bra's (im a girl)
-5 rubberbands (for hair and other purposes)
-2 pairs of socks
-1 extra cloth (for clothes, slings, tourniquite, etc.)
-1 pair of shoes (wearing of course)
-razor (i refuse to kill zombies with a girlstache)
-2 small towels
-xacto knives (i have a reason)
-cotton (for a DIY fire starter)
-plastic straw (DIY fire starter)
-tweezers (splinters, glass shards)
-hair pins (can pick locks)
-hand sanitizer (can unfreeze locks)
-rice (food, doesn't really expire, easy to make, dries phones)
And I have already tested to see if all that will fit in my bag. It will.

The Anomoly Bug-Out-Bag
First off, let me preface my BOB with this... Everyones BOB is unique to their capabilities and their intentions. I have no intention of running, crawling or jumping far distances with a 9lb BOB or a 99lb BOB. My EDC backpack is ~40lbs so going more than that with a bag that places the weight on my hips should be 100% doable. At the moment I do not have the entire pack build, so I can't do a good test., however once I do, I'm going to try to spend a week (two if I can afford the time off) surviving solely off my pack. This is the best way to find out exactly what you're able to live without. In theory, I will make the sacrifice of the extra weight, in order to have a more complete pack. After living off it, this may not end up being the case.
All that being said, while I welcome your comments about needing to minimize weight, unless you offer the same functionality out of something lighter, I'm not really interested. I plan to see what I can and cannot tolerate in a real situation rather than based upon generalizations.
My pack is separated in pouches, each roughly named after their use/and or function.

Unique to your BOB
What items do you have that you don't think anybody else has in their BOB?
I was browsing the threads and stumbled upon a very useful addition, a small metal pencil sharpener. you can sharpen sticks to a point for traps/weapons but you can also create tinder from fire starting with the small shavings.
My unique items are are wrist brace, an ankle brace, and a iron bamboo walking staff.
The wrist brace and ankle brace are pretty self-explanatory. The walking staff allows me to walk farther, stabilizes me when climbing or descending hills, and works perfectly with my Cold Steel Warhead, to give me a quality spear.

Best Bags for BOBs
Haven't seem a thread specifically listing the best bags for BOBs. I currently have a "Fox Tactical Military MOLLE Jumbo Transport Patrol Duffle Carry Bag & Backpack" which works great for traveling I can carry almost as much as I want, and can add more when needed with MOLLE. This is my current BOB, however, There are several limitations with it that I want to rectify.
For one, it's ACU which looks great (I get compliments on the bag everywhere I go) however, it does attract unwanted attention. It's also huge which is awesome I've had over 2 weeks of clothes packed into it before, however without a waist belt, and frame it can become quite uncomfortable when fully loaded. and lastly, the backpack straps aren't the most comfortable, and actually my regular backpack (Oakley AP Backpack 3.0) is more comfortable to wear. But, this bag was not really intended as a BOB and as such, has worked great for now.
I've been looking into either a Kifaru EMR or AG2 as my BOB rather than using my current travel bag.
What is you're favorite/ideal bag for a BOB?
