Q:1
What is your most used piece of kit in your BOB? (Excluding knives, canteens)

Q:2
What three items from your BOB are required? (Knives and firearms excluded)

And for brownie points only:
Q:3
What’s the most unusual item in your BOB?

A1: 100mph tape. You can do anything with it. Make rope. Make a water bladder/water collection. Patch wounds. Repair damaged radiator hoses. Patch bullet holes. Make weapons. I fixed a HUMMV once with a stick and 100mph tape. Given enough tape, you can make a shelter with it. Even a boat.

If you can think of it, you can do it with 100mph tape.

A2: Something to write with. Something to write on. Toilet paper.

A3: A fire piston. Probably one of the most trick pieces of gear I own. Yeah, it’s low-tech, but it’s still trick. Take some fungus off a birch tree, put it in the end of the piston, insert and then smack it. Instant ember to make fire. Works on the same principal as a diesel engine: Compression = combustion. Worth the money.

The wicked flee when none pursueth..." - Proverbs 28:1
