    I was on a discussion about that...
    What could I have on me on a crisis scenario without a pack.
    Then I remember about a project I´ve always wanted to make.
    A survival/war belt.
    Anybody have yours?
    What countains?
    I start a list to develop better. Most part is with stuff that I already have (not mentioning the clothes and shoes).

    1) Guns and ammo:
    a) Glock 19 + 4 mgs + sheaths and holster
    b) Mossberg 930 (with +3 extender) + sling
    c) Trespassed 12 gauge ammo belt with a variety of shotshells.

    2) Blades and tools:
    a) Laser Strike with its sheath and an Esee pouch with tin attached
    b) Leatherman Wave with molle sheath and bit kit
    c) Spyderco Paramiltary 2

    3) Fire kit:
    a) 2 Bics (one on pockets and one on the LS tin)
    b) 2 Ferro rod (one on LS)
    c) Cotton with vaseline on a little plastic bag (some inside the tin and the rest on the pouch)

    4) 60 feet of paracord

    5) Other Stuff:
    a) Mini fish kit
    b) Flashlight - SF G2X (on belt)
    c) Headlight - Princeton Pro
    d) Water purification tablets
    e) Micro collapsible wood stove
    f) Compass and maps
    g) Emergency blanket
    h) Toothbrush, paste and dental floss
    i) Lipbalm
    j) 4 protein bars, 4 pack of nuts, coffee and tea
    k) Duct tape
    l) Zip ties
    m) Extra batteries (12)
    n) Pen, pencil and waterproof notepad
    o) Bug repellent

    6) GI aluminum water canteen with cup and belt sheath + Flexible/collapsible water continer (Hydrapak seeker 100 oz.)

    7) Spork

    8) Sunglasses (Ess Crossbow) + Gshock Rangeman + Hat + Shemagh

    9) IFAK with sunscreen and some kind of hygiene (soap and sanitizer)

    10) Rain poncho

    Now the questions and asking for recommendations:
    What belt? (Thinking about a Blackhawk Reinforced Duty + Harness)
    What IFAK Pouch?
    What pouch for the "other stuff" (number 5)?
    What more do you will include (or exclude)?

    It´s just the beginning of the development.
    The backpack with food, extra clothes, extra ammo, extra stuff and shelter it´s a whole another discussion

    My belt kit is a little more on the bushcraft side than SHTF I don’t really carry firearms as my belt kit but on my main pack. Thinking of switching to a bow once I practice more. My kit covers the 10cs with a little redundancy. I have a nice leather belt from badger claw but the KLIK belts look nice and they have a 2 ply and 3 ply duty belt that would hold all you want. I’ll take pics of mine. Your list is quite nice and covers a lot. My belt kit is tier 1 basic gear that is always with me. Then I have a haversack for tier 2 and my main pack as tier 3. Basically I hike in and drop the pack and establish base camp. My belt kit goes on and stays and my haversack is just for fishing hunting supplies etc for quick trips from camp.

    Klik belt;

    Built like a brick **** house and can hold all your gear you can get loops with D rings to slide on for a harness.

    I like that it has side pouches for a TQ, scissors and is tear off but depends on size kit you want this is larger.

    Other stuff;

    Johns work is amazing and durable. He now has this with a button stud closure, think the wwii leather 1911 Holster’s on the flap. This thing is big. It’s on par with a military butt pouch. He can make them smaller as he is for me now. When in stock the Hidden woodsman belt pouch is a great size.

    My pouches;

    The first is a badger claw Nav pouch which I keep first aid in, used to keep a repair kit but I plan on adding the @EXOTAC rip spool when it goes to the civilian market ;) I have an ESEE tin with the med supplies, latex gloves (also for cleaning and skinning) and two days worth of my medicine in waterproof tubes.

    This covers 8 of the 10c’s with some redundancy and no container (to boil in) or cover. I’m working on that. I am adding a compass at some point, the new badger claw belt pouch to replace the bigger one I ditched for the size of the hidden woodsman and I am adding the badger claw bushcrafter dump pouch.

    This all rides really well, isn’t in the way and covers my basic woods needs. In the beginning I put way too much on the belt. Do a multi tiered system. It made life much better for me.

    AR mag pouches? You could always do a BAR belt.

    I will say smaller pouches packed with less is better. I have packed it all in my den and got it to fit but using in the field and repacking will on your hip and busy is a different story just because the pouch holds it doesn’t mean it works. Just a thought.

    No, pistol mag pouches (g17/g19).

    Good thoughts on the small packages.

    Gotcha, might be a tight fit but you never know. Yea when you pack everything wear it and try repacking and packing to see how it goes. Practice makes perfect
