looks good..The only thing I see thats maybe missing is some sort of tinder for your fire making kit..I good cheep tinder is some cotten balls soaked with vasaline,then wrapped in tin foil..you can either unwrap them completely for starting a fire or pull a little bit out of the top and use as a makeshift candle,or slow burning tinder..Oh and throw a can of some kinda Deet or bug juice in there..Chiggers and ticks suck..

Shamwow towel? Really?

Aside from the annoying infomercial guy, I know nothing about these.

Do they work as advertised? Would you recomend to your friends?

Maybe I should think about picking a few up?

Tinder and fire fuels are fairly abundant. I taught my kids to build fires with only 2 matches to start with when it is raining. I am confident in my fire starting abilities. My major concern for the inch bag was not having stuff that will run out. Yeah I broke down with the wipes, TP and kleenex.


The shamwow towels do hold a tremendous amount of liquid. They don't work like the commercials, for example they don't dry on contact. But they do soak up a lot. A glorified sponge really. I put it in there thinking of a wound dressing.

Don't just soak your balls or lint in just vaseline. Make a mixture of 75% vaseline and 25% diesel or kerosene. It will make lighting them a lot easier regardless of weather.

As far as the Shamwow things go, my wife works at wal-mart and they sell them there. She said a lot of people have returned them because they don't work worth a crap.

And they make you want to hire a prostitute and beat the sh!t out of her

Tp is only going to last so long. We're going to end up medieval style eventually. An idea that you might want to think about (i know it's not going to be a favorable idea) is to take along some washcloths for the duty. Keep them in a ziplock bag and wash them in a creek when you have to use them. It will beat the hell out of accidentally grabbing some poison oak or ivy

Erm Do you you make a habit of coating your balls in petrolium jelly and leaving them out in the weather? , I'm pretty sure my mum warned me about people like that

Sorry to sound ignorant but I have a BOB, I know what and EDC is and I also have a belt pack.
Then I have just started reading about a INCH pack, now is this a BOB ? if so why is it now called and Inch pack ?

INCH means"Im Never Coming Home"
I hope my BOB will cover as a INCH bag if I bug out and realize I can't go home

As always NR, you are a fountain of knowledge.

I must take a look at my BOB, maybe I need two bags one for when it might be possible to come home after an event or maybe I should just go all out with a inch bag.
Mind you I think the only thing I might add would be a tent to allow a stay out in the open a little more easier and to assist with my tarp.

I learn quickly from people with good ideas and some Americanese recently suggested as well as the layered EDC, BOB system the Bob system should also be layered with expansion modules. IE Basic Bob with main kit and supplies for 72 hours, Then Expansion kit 1 with extra rations, clothes, medical supplies, fuel to last say 168 or 336 hours. Expension kit two containing another layer which basically finishs off converting the 72 house disaster kit, to a BOB to an INCH bag. IE like the tarp you mention Ideal for 72 hours but with an expansion kit you could have a tent, the tarp would then be used as a wind break for the tent etc etc

I have taken a look at my BOB , It does have room and clips for an expansion bag.
The layered outlook on the BOB looks like a winner for sure.
I will be purchasing additional fuel, food and adding extra medical supplies and clothing to the extra layered bag which will simply clip to my BOB.
Again thanks for the heads up.

Regards.

The concept certainly has potential, its an alternative to the traditional BOB bag and prelocated Caches if you need more flexability in your travel plans, IE you dont know where you are going or which route you will choose the INCH is a better arrangement. But for families with a retreat or safe location already sorted the lighter weight BOB and Cache system will probably be better ( I think ) ??

A lot of peoples mums warned them about people like me


I like to use a little kerosene also


The vaseline/diesel mix added to a little bit of (clean
) cat litter also makes a great napalm substitute.
