Default **British Section** Clothes in the BOB/GOOD Bag



Advertise Here

I'm a lady, and I'm trying to work out what clothes to put into my BOB bag with our changeable weather, more so the fabrics and types of clothing to put in.

My thinking is lots of layers:

Bra - not sure whether to put in sports bra, as many would work as a top.
Spaghetti strap top
Long sleeve t shirt - the running sort with thumb insert that fold up small.
Thin jumper / or should I go for thick jumper
Zip up thick cardigan


Pants
Cycling shorts
Leggins
Jeans/or thick jogging bottoms.
Rainproof gear

As for a coat, that's going to be harder

A bubble jacket - the roll up small and usually have Ida down so are warm.
A rain mac
Something winter with a hood.

Ankless socks
Socks
Thermal socks

1 set of walking boots
I'll probably be wearing my Skecher trainers.

I would love some advice on it, plus what clothes do you have in your kit.

Spaghetti strap top Don't need
Long sleeve t shirt - the running sort with thumb insert that fold up small.
Thin jumper / or should I go for thick jumper
Zip up thick cardigan Get a hooded fleece


Pants I would go with more socks than underpants.
Cycling shorts Unless you're on a bike I wouldn't bother
Leggins
Jeans/or thick jogging bottoms. No jeans
Rainproof gear Essential for EDC use

As for a coat, that's going to be harder If you have the rain gear and warm layers no need for a coat.

A bubble jacket - the roll up small and usually have Ida down so are warm. No need and if it gets wet a nightmare to dry
A rain mac No need
Something winter with a hood. No need if you have layers and a warm hat

Ankless socks
Socks
Thermal socks

How big is your bugout bag? you might find it stuffed full with just clothes and not much room for anything else. Only you can say just how hot and cold you feel in the different seasons.

How far are you bugging out and for how long? Can you leave clothes at your bugout locations?

Change your bugout bag clothes to the season. Add a set of thermal underwear for the winter nights.

For summertime I should imagine if you put your different layers on and your rainsuit, you'd be able to kip outside without a sleeping bag and just a sleeping mat and be not too uncomfortable.

Warm hat, scarf and gloves are not just for winter.

Buy the best waterproof, breathable jacket you can and EDC it. Make sure there's plenty of room to be able to layer up underneath. I bought a Berghaus goretex jacket 9 years ago for 160 and it's still going strong today.

A dry bag to put your spare clothes in.

I'm not being funny, if you knock around some charity shops you can pick up some good gear. It is cheap but check the integrity of it, I have picked up some good stuff from there.
It's mostly stuff from people who have tried being a camper and then didn't like it.
