For those interested in a good read that is directly relevant to this topic, I suggest that you read the original, unabridged "Swiss Family Robinson." It has been since mislabeled by many as a children's book, but it certainly is not. Yes, it was fantasy, but it aptly demonstrated which tools (no electricity to boot!) were needed in which situation, how they could be used, and how tools could be fabricated using native materials.

The context of the book was that a ship loaded with everything needed to start a new colony in the south Pacific in the 1800s floundered, and all hands abandoned ship with the exception of one family. The ship was not completely lost, and the family was able to recover most of the supplies on the ship. The information is well detailed, and it is evident that the author knew what he was talking about when it came to equipment at least.

What I think is very evident from reading the book and observing our not too distant ancestors' migrations is the importance of livestock in a long-term 'survival' situation. Even something as simple as chickens or even quail can be a huge boost not only to people's nutrition but also to the ability to fertilize and manage crops. In any realistic INCH scenario, I think that one should consider how animals could be incorporated to some extent.

When planning an inch bag, the difficulty is in never coming home why? Different scenarios will change needs drastically. An emp for instance vs just lack of civility and law enforcement, etc.
Never coming home because say your city has gone full blown Ferguson means there may be resupply later, outside the chaos. Whereas an emp, everyone is screwed.
I try to take my packs in a modular approach. Quick scout/recon trip, pack A. Trip which may need alot of ammo, pack B. Existence pack is C( food etc. ) and mixed in with all that are small butt packs with other supplies which are set up to quickly attach to any of the packs. Everything else we need to survive is already in totes.
I find that the modular approach keeps me from getting overwhelmed. Start with one or two packs/ goals and work out, planning from most deemed imminent threat to a possible emp/ whatever down the line. Just my personal approach.
Also, maps can never be understated. Good maps of broad areas around you. Mark off locations of things such as distribution centers and the like. Plot ways of getting to those types of places through woods or other methods of moving unseen.

For my concept of an INCH kit, you will need a mix of both hard and soft LBE/Gear storage. Then INCH kit includes BOB elements, so you will need those in a good bag. But many of the items are going to need good weather protection, so hard cases are called for. Also, since one might have to cache quite a bit of the gear at times, the more water resistant hard cases would be a best bet. In addition, there will be awkward items lashed to the top of the load, which may or may not need a tarp to cover them.

Again, my INCH kit is not simply a large container of stuff. It is a system that will require some type of assisted transport to carry it all. And with that being the case, hard cases are not an obstacle, but an advantage, along with a couple of soft bags for specifics. Which might or might not be carried in hard cases for protection.

Just my opinion.

Thank you!

If you PM me your e-mail address I will send a .pdf of the latest version. The Kindle version is getting old. I have added quite a bit to the manual since 2012.

Hi, interesting thread!

Do any of you have pictures or youtube videos of your gear listed out? Some of these lists seem... massive.

I do not have pictures and do not do videos. For several reasons. The first is operational security. The second is that I am not at all skilled at photography or video production, The third is that I do not have everything listed or put together, and most of my lists are pick and choose for individuals to peruse and decide on which items fit their needs and ignore the rest.

Now, it has come up before, and I still say that while sometimes the physical size and/or cost of the items on my lists can be large/high, most actually are not all that physically big or heavy. And there are almost always less expensive alternatives to the high end gear I often list. Do not let lists overwhelm you. Do those things you actually need, understand, and can afford. I give opinions and options. Not gospel. Anyone that takes my advice without other opinions and due diligence research is not being very wise at all. I am only one source. Check many.

Just my opinion.

For a second there Jerry I was under the impression that you were gonna carry all that stuff...like a Cold Steel ODA and a bayonet...

What this list, which is as exhaustive as any that I've seen, clearly shows is the necessity of community and the division of labor. Five families could do well with this list. Fifteen families could thrive with this list. What's more, five families could afford this list and actually use all the stuff on the list to the benefit of the community...Five to fifteen families (30 adults max, larger makes for over-complication).

Wow! A newbe gets it! Most of the time people think all the items on most of my lists are intended to be included in all circumstances. They tend to be pick and chose lists, just as you perceive. Different people chose the items they want/need for their situation and only those items.

Thank you.

Just my opinion.

All right Jerry, I'm kitted up and ready to go. Problem, I can't move, sit down, lay down, or get up with the 1000 pounds of kit I'm wearing let alone on my back, pushing, and hauling. Jerry, I think I'm going to stay home!!! Good luck to you!

You probably will not need everything, but you do want to have enough to allow you to prepare ground, plant, care for, and harvest some staple foods. Potatoes, turnips, carrots, onions for sure, so you can make hearty soups with any meat you might be able to hunt/trap to acquire. At the very least, take a large quantity of seeds. You can have all the equipment in the world to garden with, but without seeds, you will not grow much of anything. For some of the following list, you can take off the long handles and carry them separately for space arrangement reasons. Or, if you are a good hand carver, and you know the materials will be at your location, you can leave the handles at home and just carry the working elements.

Garden seed, equipment & supplies:
non-hybrid seeds
soil turning spade
utility shovels
soil rake
planting hoe
cultivating hoe
planting dibble
short handled digging trowel
short handled cultivating rake
row marking stakes & string
tuber harvesting fork
corn husking pin
pitch fork
scythe & wooden fork (to cut & handle hay)
harvesting knives
harvesting striking stick
harvesting sickle (grains - wheat & rye)
seft & wooden mat hook (grains - wheat & rye - hold straw with mat hook)
grain cradle (scythes with light wooden racks to catch the cut straw)
(for small grains)
thrashing flails
gathering baskets, buckets, boxes & bags w/shoulder slings or belts
wheel barrow – if appropriate transport is available
garden wagon – if appropriate transport is available
garden cart – if appropriate transport is available – can always use the game cart
hand pump pressure sprayer
hand pump spray cans
irrigation ditch control gates
pest control devices
(scarecrows, spinners, traps, decoys)
scythe hammer & anvil to straighten nicks, whetstone to sharpen blades


Below are some tools lists that might prompt some ideas of what you might do as a business in the PAW, either long term or to get you through for a while as you build up your primary business. The list is from a comprehensive tool list, so includes many items you will not be able to take with you on an INCH kit. But hopefully you can pick and choose the key items that you can carry that will get you started.

The INCH kit all boils down to being able to survive long enough to get to a place where you can start over, either in your current profession, or start a new one short term or long term. The key is to plan ahead, have several likely places to go to where you can be at least somewhat assured of being able to make it long term. The more skills you have, and the more tools and supplies you have, the better your chances of making a good go of it. But that has to be tempered with the volume and weight of everything you must take with you. So be selective, and try to have at least one or two options that do not require much to set you up in a profitable situation.

Just my opinion
Hey Jerry,
What do you do in your spare time..??

Hey Jerry. Your "kit" mind boggling comprehensive and complete, lacking only livestock and th he means to transport the mass. I don't see it as an INCH kit tho. It feels more like a homestead kit. Maybe they're the same thing or should be. I stopped calling my survival kit an INCH kit a while back, even tho it would be an INCH kit should it be tapped in need. My INCH kit for non EOTWAWKI dissaster scenarios consists of my tools, our survival kits, clothing , keepsakes and plenty of cash to relocate and start over.
I would like to read your thoughts on an extended wilderness system that came in at around 700 or 800 pounds. A 2 or 3 person kit that would sustain indefinitely but could be transported by carts, horses or boat. Presuming no lack of available forage, game or aquatic protein.

About 5 years ago I went thru "INCH",had about 10 hours to get ready.
The documents,photos,and keepsakes took the longest to organize-there was only so much room in the car.

The list was long,and I might have missed it,but pets are an issue.I had a 120# German Shepard that I couldn't take,and there was no realistic alternative.I did what I had to do.That still hurts.

I would like to read your thoughts on an extended wilderness system that came in at around 700 or 800 pounds. A 2 or 3 person kit that would sustain indefinitely but could be transported by carts, horses or boat. Presuming no lack of available forage, game or aquatic protein.
When I can get some time, I will clean up an existing list that is close to what you reference. Do not know when it will be, but I will do one.

Just my opinion.

I'll post our gear and supply list or can send you a pm if you prefer and maybe you can critique it when you get a chance. It's a little different, designed specifically for our AO rather than a general purpose kit. It would probably be useful for any warmer climate swamp-estuary ecosystem. I'd like your insight in any case.
