Please keep in mind I'm on a blue caller budget and I'm still working on my bag. I have a few things coming in this week to add to it. My bag is an A.L.I.C.E. pack that I got for 4 bucks at the local theft store.
Out side of the pack:
80 ft of pink para cord. That's right pink.
Bear Grylls Fixed Blade. Say what you want about Bear but the knife is nice.
2 granola bars
This is what I call a bug out bottle. Check out my youtube video if you want more info http://youtu.be/wFhngLdnnzE
This is a hanging toiletries bag that carrys most of my essential supplies.
4 AA batters (all electronic in my pack us AA)
Reusable zip ties
2 way communicators
.22 survival rifle
I'm open to any suggestions.

Awesome! my BOB is an Alice as well... Not the most comfortable pack but indestructable. One thing that makes these bags so much fun to put together is that you'll always be working on it. I's a never ending process of uprgading items, adding things you realize you need, removing things you realize you won't need, etc...
Good job! Great pics!
Thanks for taking the time to post!!!The 12ga.... It's not just for rabbits anymore.

did you try using the insert pictures feature? There's a toolbar above your post when editing it ( I think you need to go to advanced when editing a post you already made) and simply click on the picture icon which is to the right of the little globeWHAT IF THE AMERICA YOU KNEW, WAS ABOUT TO CHANGE?

I have a Large ACU Molle II Rucksack with Sustainment Pouches. I bought it off of ebay for 55 bucks. I hate the ACU pattern, so I went and purchased some dark green DYE. It worked quite well. At least it doesn't glow in the dark anymore (LOL). I also bought an attachment bag for the front. I think it was on sale at sportsman guide. I put the dark green to it also. The DYE had a hard time taking to the pouch. I think it was becasue it was new. The Surplus army pack was older and a little more broken in. The Molle II ruck has 4000 cubic inches of space and 500 more with the Sustainment pouches attached to the sides. I researched for several months to find the most room for the best price and this was it.
The contents are pictured here. All the electronics are not kept in the bag. I keep them in a gutted microwave for potential EMP protection. If I need to move quickly, it will only take a minute or so to move them from the micro to the bag.
