One comment on “Packing Weight for a Smooth Bug-Out

  1. This is a very valuable article. During my army days as section commander we tried various methods for sharing weight etc. For example sharing the load of the heavy radio batteries tha normally the signaller would carry. I, or we, found that if you all had the same weight then fatigue set in about the same time with everyone. The solution was to think outside the box. in that you do not have to carry the same rucksack all the time! So we for a example a lightweight one which contained sleeping bags (uncompressed sleeping bags are lighter than those in compress-bags btw) – shove the bags in loose. By rotatings the rucksacks between our section moral was boosted plus it meant a change in carrying weight for each.
