Five Vital Things You Must Have In The Field
Here are five vital things you should have with you in the field.
You’ll notice those are blank. That’s because we’re looking for some input from you guys.
One of our crew is headed to a remote island location on a security contract to assist and protect recovery employees (and assets) for a large corporation. They will be likely be running off generators and living in field conditions in 2 week cycles.
Now, she is salty enough when it comes to gunhandling – she’s a member of a tactical unit, is assigned to a violent crimes task force in an extremely violent area, and knows how to handle herself. However, this sort of thing isn’t really something she has a lot of experience in (she’s a LEO, not former military, limited experience camping and backpacking).
Space is limited, as is weight. The list below is the equipment loadout they instructed her to bring. What would you recommend adding to this list?
• Pistol w/ 3 mags & necessary cleaning equipment & 100rds Ammunition
• 1 x Tactical Holster and 1 x Concealment Holster w/ Magazine Pouches
• Rifle Plate Body Armor w/ Plate Carrier
• 2 x Sunglasses & 2 x Clear Eye-Protection
• Sonic Ear Protection & Ear Plugs
• 5 x Field Shirts (specific colors) & 2 xCombat Shirts
• 3 x Tactical Pants (specific colors)
• 2 x Boots/ Trail Shoes
• Individual First Aid Kit (IFAK)/ Medical Blowout Bag/ Necessary Medications
• Necessary Personal Hygiene Items (toiletries, baby wipes, foot powder, etc.)
So, as you can see, a basic list there. We’d begin by adding extra mags, a good knife, a multi-tool, a couple dozen protein bars, and a backpacker’s solar charger with the appropriate “plumbing” to connect with whatever devices she has with her.
BUT FIRST – click the image below for us. It’s not a rickroll or anything like that. This time.
