Well, that leaves out my suggestion of a solid gold AK-47.(Ha, I make the funny.)
Cool bag. I'm glad to hear you tried it out on some hikes.
I have always found it helpful for myself to consider the intent
of the bag when I'm creating a BOB.
For example: a BOB for 3 days journey over ABC-terrain during XYZ-season.
It helps me to pack what is relevant to my situation. Othewise, I tend to become overwhelmed
trying figure out what to use. I don't need to pack a parka in my BOB during the 110(f)/43(c)
summers of central Texas.
Over time, I accumulated the items I will always need in there; but I'm not afraid to regularly
switch out seasonal gear in my BOB.
