What do you carry (on the field)?

So I'm sitting here bored in Philosophy so I came up with this thread which may or may not have been done before but it's been at least 2 years, but what do you carry onto the field. I don't mean your gear, I mean what you keep in it. mags, loose ammo, food/drink, assorted tools and accessories, etc.... What's on you when you walk out.

I'll start: I carry between 5-7 mags for my primary (plus one in the gun) and 2 mags for my pistol (one in the gun, one spare). Obviously got my red rag which I have tied down to my rig and added a small patch of hard velcro to stick it to my helmet. I keep my cell phone in my pocket and keys in my admin. I fill my hydro bladder with about 45-50 oz of water, although I rarely use a quarter of that. I also keep a swiss army for utility purposes and black electric tape (a necessity). I also keep a map (if available) and pen and paper for MilSim events. As far as spare ammo, I don't carry it for pickup events, but for more long term games I carry a 1000 rd bottle and a speed loader.

Let's see what you got.

My loadout is very similar but my springer has a hi cap mag

I carry more water than 50 oz during the summer especially but during the winter I have the full Camelback + another bottle or two.

I carry a couple tools (knife, screwdrivers, tape) but nothing significant unless its a 24 hr + event

Cell Phone rarely, only if Im at a place Im unfamiliar with.

I also carry binoculars at MilSims. When youre in the woods at Springfield and you need to see whats going down at the Airfield they can be helpful. I also have my radio, maps, and headset to keep me in touch with everyone.

I found this WalMart 2000 round bottle that fits perfectly in my AK pouch that I have on my side.

Oh speaking of which I used to have my heavy *** Condor vest, but I swithed to a 6094 which is much more comfortable and lighter. Still perfecting the setup but I carry my 6 mags on front and then my dual AK pouches on my left carry spare ammo/water (perfect size for it), right side is dump pouch and sidearm. Still need a better sling because mine pulls on the shoulder hard and I would love something that is a midpoint sling that hangs in the middle of my chest to make even pull on both shoulders.

That should be it. My Current Topics in Governmental Accounting class is going pretty bad so I hopped on here too
If I have anything else I will add.

What do you carry (on the field)?

CLICK HERE FOR A PIC

I use a Condor Chest Rig without a bib, keeps my large body rather cool in the summer lol. On that I run my pistol, because I HATE wearing a belt. A triple double closed top m4 pouch (holds 6 mags). A utility/medic pouch that holds BASIC cuts/scrathes type bandages, some tools and my small midland radio. Then I have an extra pistol mag pouch. I also have my Z-Tac headset and PTT. Gets the job done and I like it. I don't think I will ever go the BIG radio route so this setup works great with my midland.

When I am playing larger/outdoor games I will run my condor hydration backpack. It works great with my chest rig because I can take it off and on super fast to access needed gear.

I run a Condor MOPC and on that I have 3 utility pouches that i carry. My phone, wallet, screw drivers, radio, grenade, and dead rag usually go in them. I run double ak mag pouch and my sling hangs off the carrier. On open plays I run 2 +1 mags for my ak and a drop leg with my pistol. In the pistol mag pouches I put my speedloaders full with bbs cause I run only three mags. I run a water bottle in dumb pouch.

Mine loadout depends on what kind of event it is mainly.

The stuff I carry for any event no matter what:
Mags 5-7 -- +2 Handgun
Water
Medical Supplies
Trail Mix/Granola Bar
Radio
Knife/Multitool
Note Pad
Pen/Pencil
Red Rag
Car Key
Watch (Even though it is on my wrist.)
Electrical Tape


The kit that I may or may not carry consists of, (Single day items are also carried during multiday events as well)

Single Day:
GPS
Speed Loader
Restraints
Maps
Protractor
Dry Erase Marker
Emergency Blanket
Extra Batteries
Flashlight/Headlamp

Multiday:
Backpack
Extra Meals (Not snacks, meals.)
Stove
Extra Clothing
Loose Ammo
Chemlights
Too Much Water
Sleeping Bag
Large Medical Kit


That is what I have for now. Like I said, everything I carry just depends on the event. For a MOUNT site I probably would not carry I GPS but anything in the woods I would, so it all is dictated by the event. "Support equipment should only support need, not dictate need."

I need to add a watch and writing to my list, definitely have needed it before. Better than remembering! Another cool thing to do is if you get a bigger map of a place you can laminate it and use a marker on it and wipe it off with a dead rag.

There's always stuff people miss or have not thought of, love this thread idea.

I've carried virtually the same items I have carried with me for the past 3 years. The only thing that have really changed are the types of mags that I've used.

My current list of items I bring on the field:
5 mags (2 hicaps, 3 mids) for my G3
2 mags for my pistol, or just one if I'm using my Jericho 941
1945 Vollrath Canteen, carried in the original canteen pouch
Small folding knife
Extra bottle of 300 rounds
Small assortment of tools (screw driver, hex key set etc..)
Flashlight (depending on conditions of op)
Extra bags or bottles of ammo (depending on length of deployment)
Red rag (obviously)
Map of the field (If available)
I keep my phone in one of the pockets of my LBV-88
Extra batteries
Personal First Aid kit

That about does it generally for every mission for me.
