Go Bag Gear List

In conjunction with my Go Bag Video, here is a list to help you plan what packs to use and gear to bring as you create your EDC / Emergency bag system.

Note that this is a additive modular system. It is assumed that items from the one bag will be added to items in others if needed. For example, while a small penlight may be sufficient for everyday pocket carry, a headlamp is better for the trail and a long-lasting crank flashlight is best for long term use. On the other hand, one would probably not carry a laptop on the trail!
