I have carried a butt pack of some variety for over 40 years whenever I leave civilization. These trips include arctic, desert, and jungle environments; so I have fine-tuned my kit for wherever I might happen to be. I now carry it in my truck on the road as well. Here is what I carry in it:

First Aid kit
Aspirin/Tylenol
Immodium
Neosporin
Bandaids of assorted sizes
Butterfly bandages
Military cravat bandage for slings, head bandage, etc.
Suture kit
Moleskin
EMT shears
Tongue blades
Hemostats
Tweezers large and small
Alcohol swabs
Que tips
scalpel
ACE Bandage

Parachute cord/550 cord – 50 feet
Knives
small fixed blade knife
small folding knife
Emergency Bivy Sack from Adventure Medical Kits (much better than a space blanket)
A few zip-lock bags – 1 gallon size
TP – small roll
Fire starting kit
Bic lighter
Ferro-cerium rod
Carbide (mix with water to release acetylene gas)
birch bark
windproof/waterproof matches
candles
Vise Grip pliers – smallest size
Whistle
compass
Head net
Fishing kit
10 lb monofiliment – 25 feet
assorted hooks and flies
split shot
Military strobe light – 1 D cell battery – I change the battery once a year.
Zip Ties – assorted sizes
Sewing kit
Needles
Thread
Buttons
Trash Bags – 2 Large Leaf Bags
Small head lamp – 3 AAA batteries

This kit, added to my (always carried) pistol and extra mags and Surefire flashlight and the Victorinox and Gerber multi-tool and Gerber folder on my belt, has never let me down.

I swear that I will defend the Constitution against all enemies - foreign and domestic. Sargemsb
