Sounds like we have to deal with opposite environments. I live in the suburbs of a city of over a million that has a pretty severe crime problem. As such, my distance to travel is typically only 12 miles as a crow flies but a classic stealth bug out with a long gun won't work; I am better served taking the grey man route. As such I've got two different bags for two different scenarios that can also be combined. The first is a riot/active shooter/trauma kit that contains 2 AR mags, a Glock 17 with a spare 21 round stick mag, an Israeli dressing, CAT tourniquet, quick clot, multi tool, Kevlar lined gloves, paint pen, surefire light, handcuffs and a small water bottle. I also carry another extra capacity Glock mag accessible in the console of the truck as well.

The other GHB is more traditional, change of appropriate clothing, work gloves, gerber fixed blade, 3 L of water still in the bottle, and an empty camel pack to be filled if needed. Camouflage tarp, bic lighters/firestarters, three easy meals, wind up radio, spare flashlight and headlamp, tarp, spare prescription glasses, space blanket, Glock E-tool/saw, etc.

My GHB that stays in the truck assumes I will have to walk home from the Airport, app 70 miles away. At least 2-3 nights in the field. Emphasis on having the essentials, not procuring them.

Shelter - A woobie and reflective tarp for a shelter along with a Frog Togs Rain Suit.
Yeti water bottle with sawyer water filters and titanium cup and a spork. Always a case of water in the car.
6 MRE main dishes, USCG Survival food (The big shortbread cookie) Assorted coffee tea and electrolyte packs, Quest bars. Cobalt Gum.
Solar charger with cables and a small tablet with a cell chip, extra batteries
Multiple flashlights (One that flashes red for walking along roads), hand crank Eton energency weather and AM/FM Radio with flashlight and phone charger (Solar rechargeable) bankline and 55 cord and gorilla tape, some small handtools, a folding saw and compass.
Glock 19 with 3 spare mags. Small fixed blade and a multitool and spyderco folder.
Big Trauma / Ouchies and booboos first aid kit and a sundries kit with soap, toothpaste, TP. Vaseline pads to keep things greased while walking. Socks and socks and a T shirt.

I have another bag I call my INCH bag, merely because its bigger and focuses more on procurement than initial sustainment (Although I have some water, food shelter etc). It has a shelter, sleeping bag, lots of tools, twine, a Tomohatchet, Cooking kit, water bottles, water bladder, lots of fire starting stuff, a huge first aid kit (Trauma, orthopedic injury, skin staples and ouchies and booboos). Chris Reeves Special Forces knife. and 44 mag ammo for the carbine and Trailboss. I also have snaps to attach a chest rig for the AR pistol and Glock 45. It has snares etc. I carry this on cross country trips.

I lucked into an ebay deal on 6" ferro rods. I stick them everywhere. (Well almost, you know.....)

One other thing is I bought 12 sewing kits from sportsmansguide.com for like $25. I added bankline, 550 cord, gorilla tape on a card, velcro, buttons eye glass repair kits to repair just about anything.
Welcome to the Kimber forum. We do pictures here.....

Same here. I used to have one of those camo bags with all the molle webbing, now use a black Kelty Redwing backpack to be less tactical looking.
With the basic bag, carry an additional plastic bin that I cycle summer or winter extras depending on the season, or length of trip from home. Test everything a few times a year and make improvements as I go along. Used to carry MREs, but they got too heavy, even after stripping. Replaced with Mountain House meals.
