  3. Edi Balian on February 19, 2020 at 12:00 pm

  8. Charles McClain on February 19, 2020 at 12:04 pm

    If you are worried about crotch rot carry a tube of zinc oxide.

  12. Besalu on February 19, 2020 at 12:09 pm

    That is a heavy traditional backpacking gear load out

  13. - Mikhail on February 19, 2020 at 12:10 pm

    Just the other day I took a look at my pack. A Kifaru pack with external frame. 7 freakin lbs with frame. I mean shit.. ya it’s a 7,800 cubic inch pack. But damn. Now I know where some the weight is coming from. But honestly when it’s on I don’t notice the 46lbs. Now that’s with 2.5 liters of water and 3days of food with my winter load out. But amazing to think I could b under 40lbs with just a diff pack…lol

  14. RhodieFreedomCamp on February 19, 2020 at 12:11 pm

    Great kit review Mitch. Much respected.
    The AT / PCT gram weenies nightmare weight, lol. I think they put themselves & others at risk by skimping on remote-critical kit & not being "survival savvy"…plus they rely on "trail magic" & towns. Do you carry a haemorrhage kit? A few of the "10 C’s" I didn’t hear you cover, wondering your rationale?: multi tool, tape, cordage, repair kit, candle, matches / lighter / emergency tinder, hygiene kit?

  15. Raphi Boy on February 19, 2020 at 12:11 pm

    what is the name of your backpack ? He seems perfect for me i want to buy it !

    Thanks

    Excellent video!

  17. Jedhigh on February 19, 2020 at 12:18 pm

    I have a bible I found in car was going to have junked at work. It’s big but still is sweet. Seeing how I didn’t wanna pay for one. Went months reading from an app until that gift showed up. I like the tiny waterproof much. Would be sweet to find one of those someday. Enjoyed your video. Blessings to you and any that read this. Take care

  18. jrozanec1 on February 19, 2020 at 12:19 pm

    26 lbs is good score but only if water and food were included. 1 liter of water is 1 kilo……

  19. bgnyc1 on February 19, 2020 at 12:19 pm

    I’m new to backpacking…. wondering why folks dont use water bladders instead of canteens. Is it just the worry of puncturing the bladder on long hikes? Or is there something else?

  20. THENEWWRANGLER on February 19, 2020 at 12:21 pm

    Man the heavy cover canteens kits are costly. over $200 us. where can I find it cheaper?

  21. Adam Bomb on February 19, 2020 at 12:21 pm

    I have less than 1k to buy a full set up for my first venture into the wild. Is there any discount/used gear site/store where i can find some cheap gear?

  22. Nicnight on February 19, 2020 at 12:22 pm

    how many days on average will a fuel canister of that size last?

  23. IamNemoN01 on February 19, 2020 at 12:26 pm

    My pack could be that light if I didn’t have so many books. I do eat wild mushrooms all the time, so I can’t leave my mushroom guide out. I also have Peterson’s edible plants guide. And my Bible is the Hebrew Aramaic and Greek scriptures.

    I like to have the complete Bible because you can’t really understand what people like Jesus, Paul, John, etcetera are referring to if you don’t have their reference, which is the words of the old Laws and the Prophets. Almost everything Jesus said was a reference to the laws and prophets. He was a Jew after all, and lived by the law up to his death. He didn’t make the law obsolete, he fulfilled it. But the principles still apply, in principle.

    I have my axe in my bag, but I don’t always take it with me. But my bushcraft bag is also my Bug Out bag. So I have it fully loaded, and change the gear depending on what I’m doing.

  24. Erich Diehl on February 19, 2020 at 12:26 pm

    No water bladder?

  25. ᴊᴏʀɪᴄ on February 19, 2020 at 12:28 pm

    What about oral hygiene?

  26. Rockford Beretta on February 19, 2020 at 12:28 pm

    Love those HC titanium canteens.

  27. James Smith on February 19, 2020 at 12:29 pm

  28. BigWill4Christ on February 19, 2020 at 12:29 pm

    What kind of pack, what is the name?

  29. wheelhousecrouse on February 19, 2020 at 12:29 pm

    Nice video…. maybe some additional. Cotton balls and Vaseline. Matches and a lighter. Not depending on just the fero rod. Food? Personal hygiene kit.. thanks for the video

  30. Quinn The Eskimo on February 19, 2020 at 12:30 pm

    26lbs is good. Add water it goes up. I like to carry an Esbit with mods also. Thanks and take care.

  31. William Hahn on February 19, 2020 at 12:31 pm

    I don’t suppose you could leave a link to that one pound ruck?

  32. Lone Wolf on February 19, 2020 at 12:32 pm

    Is that a 50 liter bag?

  33. Higgsfield In the field on February 19, 2020 at 12:33 pm

    Interesting what you say about the underwear. one of the main Items military guys carry is foot powder, yet I haven’t seen anyone on youtube say they carry it, I do, always, you really need to keep your feet and as you say ‘creases’ dry, …..great post as ever man, all the best from Scotland.

  34. ExON Norway on February 19, 2020 at 12:34 pm

    Great video. Lots of good advice You give, Thank You!

  35. thomasgoespro on February 19, 2020 at 12:35 pm

    Fantastic vid mate!

  38. Becky French on February 19, 2020 at 12:40 pm

    Can you use your hair to start fire? Tinder and cordage?

  39. Brian Wofford on February 19, 2020 at 12:41 pm

    Really great video. I even took notes.

  40. Joe medeiros on February 19, 2020 at 12:41 pm

    Where can I get a great map of the white mountains national forest?
    Thanks in advance for your time.

  41. Kurt Baier on February 19, 2020 at 12:41 pm

    Been in the outdoors all seasons for 5 decades. Had an optimus and Svea stoves for winter camping. Eventually came to use just a wood fire or alcohol stove. Have used hex tabs. Trying the Swiss military sterno stove M90? this year. I’m not in a rush when I go to the woods. I used to bag mountains and trails. I just go to be free now. Been DIY hammocking about 10 yrs. I use a reflective truck windshield sun shield in the hammock down to 40f for insulation. Taped paracord to the top of the sun screen turned insulation mat to stop it from sliding down in the hammock.

  42. Tomek_PL on February 19, 2020 at 12:41 pm

    Waterproof NewTestament. +10 cool factor. We share a lot with what we pick & carry.

  43. Kurt Baier on February 19, 2020 at 12:48 pm

    Shug Emery rocks the UR Sack that is made from Kevlar. You just tie it to a tree. No more trying to hang your food.

  44. Patchwork Gardens on February 19, 2020 at 12:49 pm

    nice well collected loadout. the talk of going down in weight is a good one but needs to take in mind that durability and comfortable weight carry goes down with weight loss. kelty isnt the most bulletproof bag and weights more than needed but it’s best to have long term gear rather than less ounces, unless your knees are bad

  45. jesse white on February 19, 2020 at 12:49 pm

    wow, i usually take about 75lbs with me on long hikes (anything over 100 miles)

  46. DeckoManiak on February 19, 2020 at 12:50 pm

    Awesome kit, ver well done and packed, good to see you carry a bible very respectable

  47. Jason W on February 19, 2020 at 12:53 pm

    I really enjoyed the waterproof New Testament. I appreciate you not being ashamed to mention that to your followers and I need to pick one up myself! Great video.

  48. TheGoatMumbler on February 19, 2020 at 12:55 pm

    Waterproof New Testament? Nice. Didn’t know it existed.

  49. Foxy Fitness on February 19, 2020 at 12:56 pm

    Excellent content! Awesome guidance for newbie hikers.

  50. FishEyeGuy Outdoors on February 19, 2020 at 12:57 pm
