Right now I have 6 30 rnd p-mags, quickclot, compression bandage, and a kit for a sucking chest wound. It still has a lot of room left. I don't want to fill it up with junk but I also don't want to be thinking "CRAP! Wish I had put a "insert gizmo name here" when I get into a shtf situation.
A bail-out bag is basically a latch-ditch effort. It differs from a get-home back in that it is a) temporary, but with no pre-set destination in mind and b) combat-oriented.
In that vein, we had a bunch of folks in my unit carrying bail-out bags (from LAPoliceGear) with extra mags, maps, a nalgene, compass, and a GOOD blow-out FAK. I like the idea of a poncho being thrown in for easy concealment, and also water purification and fire-starting means, as well as signalling devices. Other than that, it's highly subjective. Foods, extra socks, weapons cleaning kit, etc etc.
