When it comes to your utility flashlight choice, look at the multi use aspect. I decided on the Streamlight Sidewinder IR LED flashlight for its numerous uses. Not only does the flashlight have multi colored LEDs, it has an IR (infrared) LED, which works with my NVG (Night Vision Goggles). The IR LED strobe feature can also be used as a “covert” signaling device. It also runs on “AA” batteries, which works with my “AA” solar rechargeable battery system.
The Sidewinder has twenty light functions, four selectable LED light colors and intensity levels, plus strobe, it is also lightweight and waterproof. The Sidewinder has more than 100-hours of runtime with any LED color at low intensity. At full-power, the Sidewinder has runtimes of between 7 and 12 hours, depending on LED selection.

I have almost no formal (or informal) training on survival stategies. My plan is to take my BOB into the "wilderness" for 3 days to find out how well I'd fare. Obviously, I'm doing this to figure out my areas of greatest need and to determine what steps I should take to be more prepared should a real situation arise. This may sound crazy, but I'm curious to see how well I'd do if something were to happen this very moment, before I have had the time to prepare...
I'm sure most people probably start with selecting the actual bag first, but I'm working the other way around. I am still hesistant to purchase a bag for fear I will select the wrong one. A bag with a frame, or without a frame? How big does it have to be? It's probably the most frustrating part of the process for me!
I appreciate all the helpful material this site has to offer, it has been invaluable in building my bag.
Also, if anybody is from North Carolina or the surrounding areas, and has a suggestion on a great place to get away and do some backpacking for a few days... feel free to send me a message. Thanks guys.
