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.

I know enough (I think) about weapon individualy, but I'm not sue what weapons make a good combo.
Example, I love, or think I might although I don't really have experience with them, both the SKS and Five-Seven, but would they work well together.
Or maybe the AR-15 and the 1911
What about melee. Would a hatchet go weel with either combo. What are some other good combos and why. Would SKS and 1911 or AR-15 and Five-Seven be better? Tell me what you think. (These are just the first couple combos I thought of.

Rewrite for Scrounger Training: Military Equipment Ready
I read the thread on what to do if I think this page is ready, and that would have led me to PM 16 Moderators and 111 Writers, and that struck me as spamming. If that is still the desired way to submit page re-writes I have no problem doing it, but I wanted to check before sending 127 PMs.
Either way, this REWRITE is ready to go live:
It is a rewrite of the Military Equipment page. The current page has the word yellow, and some military flares, and clearly states its a work in progress. The replacement page(s) contain information on Large (20mm+) Ammunition, Small Arms ammunition, a general ammunition overview including crates and markings, Hand Grenades and some plagiarism of the Maritime Flares stolen from the original page.
I do intend on adding to the pages, especially military communications equipment and vehicles, but the pages as-is are complete and ready to go, and there's no way a reader of the pages would know more is coming. I'm also willing to add information as questions are posed - the grenades page is a response to a user's request.

There are actually a couple of things that you can do to help quiet the amount of noise that your pack makes (the contents are another matter). For one simple electrical tape applied to the tab of a zipper pull will quiet the clanking sound that it makes by a lot. For more permanent solutions you can use heat shrink on them or even better replace them with a knotted piece of cord. For the zipper itself you can give it a good rub down with wax either from a candle or a block of canning wax on the outside then zip and unzip it a few times to work the wax down into the teeth.
Ammo but NOT how to make it
16 cal: used in guns smaller then 3 in barrel and action
22 cal: most smaller guns use this
30 cal: browning 1919 chose of ammo
20 20 : this powerful hunting rifle is good for sniping
50 cal: sniper's machin guns only thing that can beat it is a baseball bat(don't ask)
70-80 cal: I have only seen this in black powder rifles
Any thing else is a small cannon

How to prepare gear for all-season scenario
Hey guys back again.
While I've been reading up on some people's list of gear that they'd bring I was wondering... How should I pack for all seasons. Reason why I ask is because I will most likely be traveling when Z-Day occurs. And while (hopefully) I won't be moving around for 1+ years, I've lived in West Michigan for almost my entire life, and we've have some crazy weather. One day it'll be in the 50's and the evening it will drop to high 20's.
I'd like to believe that I could just bring a sleeping liner or something as light as that to keep weight down, but I can't really rely on that. Plus with 2010's winter weather from New York to Texas, that only adds more concern for multi-season equipment.
So does anyone have tips or ideas for surviving winter, spring, summer and fall with as little equipment as possible?
