Okay, updated bag!

As you can see, I've used paracord to attach a 2 man tent to my bag. I have hiked it that way and it doesn't get in the way at all.

In the front pocket you'll find my trauma supplies. Two Asherman Chest Seals, 2 rolls of Kerlix, 1 npa, 1 Israeli Bandage, 1 SAM Splint, 1 Field Dressing, 1 Triangular Bandage, 2 small Ace Wraps, Trauma Shears, Medical Tape, 1 cat and 2 pair of Nitrile Gloves. Like I said, these are just my trauma supplies. I have a more basic, all encompassing FAK inside my BOB.

I've made some adjustments to what food I carry. I did away with the bulkier MRE components I'd had that would have needed heated up. I now carry 1 3600 Mainstay Ration, 5 Quaker Oats Granola Bars, 10 mini Slim Jims, 5 packs of Vitamin C Fruit Chews, 3 MRE drink mixes, 4 MRE peanut butter spreads, 3 MRE cheese spreads, 1 MRE blackberry jam spread and 4 Emergen-C drink packets, 2 slices of MRE wheat snack bread, 1 MRE pound cake, 1 MRE fig bar and 1 Clif bar. 'Cause variety is the spice of life, right?

For clothes I have 1 pair of BDU pants, poly pros, 2 moisture wicking t-shirts, 3 pair socks and underwear, 1 sports bra, 1 balaclava, 1 bandana, 1 winter hat and 1 boonie hat. I also carry a real towel now, wrapped up in a plastic grocery bag. It's replaced the shitty camp towel that I used to carry.
This is slightly off topic, but for those of you who carry "camp towels", make sure you actually experiment with them and don't just throw them in your B.O.B. like I had done. Because seriously, I think they suck.

Speaking of mistakes to learn from, what you see in the upper left hand corner is the waterproof and wind resistant jacket I picked up after having to actually use the $1.99 poncho I used to carry. Also shown are gloves, water/wind resistant gloves, an emergency blanket, a collapsible water bowl, mosquito head netting, toiletries, camp soap, and hand sanitizer. The contents of the ziploc baggy include water purification tabs, 2 disposable hand warmers, fishing hooks, hair ties, DEET, 2 bic lighters, 2 packs of military fuel gel, waterproof matches, a firestarting tool, and a freebie sewing kit.

Here I have 550 paracord, a write in the rain notebook and pen, 2 full Nalgene bottles, duct tape and 100mph tape, wet wipes, mirror, 2 glow sticks, my gerber multi tool, fishing line, deodorant, my compass, my fixed blade, my IFAK, stainless steel camping pot and lexan silverware, windup radio and headlamp.
A lot of the modifications to my bag were made per everyone's advice on the bag I posted last fall. This is why I carry Nalgene bottles instead of water bottles and why I have a tent latched onto my BOB.
Some of the advice I was given, I chose to ignore. My engineer directional compass, for example. I like it, know how to use it and see no real reason to replace it.
Not shown are my LED flashlight and 8 AAA batteries.
