    I just came across your video. Good set of items in your bag. Maxpedition always makes quality products and for a day hike, great bag. However, from my experience, I no longer use sling bags. Although you may not feel it right away, carrying so many items or too much weight can definitely take a toll on your shoulder and make it soar especially if you are out for a few hours. You always have great videos and I enjoy watching them. Just thought I would share my experience with the sling bag.

    Outside of clothing to suit the season/environment (water proof coat, hats ect.) it's pretty much all there. I like a brew kit so a metal cup, small light stove stand, a few hexi blocks (double as fire starters) and the caffeine or hot chocolate of your choice. The advantage of a brew kit is you have to stop to make it and it gives you time and an energy boost if you've become ''directionally challenged'' and a little frustrated. Those smaller tarps are great on day hikes even if there's no emergency, I've hung them in tree branches during rain (you could create shade too) to create cover, they're a multi use sit mat and can be used as a sack for some gathering, great little things!

    Hi JJ. Nice kit. The shelter, fire, water, food, navigation , signalization, knife and 1st aid is covered. Are you bringing also some emergency communication? I prefer to teach to use cell phone or HF 2-way or VHF/UHF 2-way or sat comm or air craft /air force emergency frequency beacon at least for long range missions… Thanks MS

    some people think they can take any kind of knife that's not true number one make sure your knife don't get rusted overtime make sure that it can be able to cut not dull when you cutting through meat and fur and Bone

    Nicely done video. The green screen work you did was good. I think that I would add some bug repellent and some sun screen. Even on a short hike mosquitoes can be a nuisance and the sun can fry you in short order. Nice load out for a little bag. Thank you for sharing.

    Nice video, I liked this video with your family background image and table set up. You are paying a lot of attention of preparing it. It's because the viewers needed to trust your knowledge.

    No complaints on your program or gear, just a couple suggestions; more emphasis on clean water procurement, and more "energy bars"…from personal experience I can tell you that you never can hydrate enough. And although you won't starve, everything including morale is easier with some grub. I spend a great deal of time in real wilderness and my chief use for the GPS is that with USGS terrain maps inside, I can look beyond my immediate area, over hills and beyond to find water, roads etc. saves me a lot of vital energy physically checking them out. Climbing a hill to look over it…and so on. Fishing kit? Bug head-net?

    I agree with M.Peek, very professionally handled. Both in etiquette AND knowledge…Definitely worth subscribing to….Youtube can be quite a brain-drainer but there ARE people out there (such as yourself) that totally redeem my faith in educational videos….Thanks for the great tutorial(s)

    Just saw your comment about map and compass vs gps and i have to agree with you. Im in the canadian forces and even though we carry gps we hardly use them except for like you said to enter the odd grid. Primarily we goto the map for quick reference and wider view at a glance.
    Just found your channel, loving it, keep it up

    i would much rather see a flashlight instead of a glowstick and a bit more fire related items(don't rough it til you have to) also some water purification items, don't need the batteries for anything anyway.

    I'm sorry but saying you're going to your GPS last is just arrogant. It's nothing more than 'I'm too cool for the easy method' bullshit. I'm sorry, but if I have a bic lighter in one pocket and a fire steel in the other and I need to make a fire, I'm going to use the easiest method…the lighter. I guarantee that if you you were ever truly lost somewhere, you'd be all over that GPS like stink on a monkey.
