Tips for Packing:
* Fry Pan from the Mess kit may not fit unless you creatively fill it with other items (wasted airspace).
* Pack items inside the Tea Cup and boiling pot to prevent wasted air space. The Fire Fixins and GI Can opener are logical choices. You can also fit small plastic bags with pills. Use rubber bands to secure lid to pot.
* Food - the 3600 calorie food ration should be nestled close to your back inside the pack. It is heavy and the weight should be close to your body.
* Knife - the buckle of the fanny pack fits nicely through the belt hole in the sheath of the knife. Wearing on the belt provides secure, fast, easy access to the fire starter and knife. We recommend storing the knife in the sheath on the packs belt at all times - ready to go.
* Take items out of their plastic retail packages for packing. Cut down any instruction sheets to their smallest size and tape them to the item to save space.
* Double bag DEET and Esbit tabs in plastic zip lock bags if possible.
* Store with water bottles full. Replace water every 6 months if using municipal tap water that has been purified with chlorination (recommended).
* Store items you may need in a hurry (pills, map, poncho) in the outside zipper pocket.
