I would ditch the cotton-Tee shirt. They can kill you, literally. Cotton absorbs moisture, you really need a moisture wicking t-shirt. They won't allow that water to stay on your body in cold weather. They are cheap too:

I keep 2 each of Kaki BDU's, undies, socks and T shirts in my back pack so I can run off camping, or back packing on a whim at any time. I keep a hoodie next to the pack and grab that as well. In addition, I allways have 3 days of dried food (soup mixes) either in the pack, and beef jerky next to it (so it's easy to rotate if I go a long period without camping).

As soon as I return, I do laundry, and re pack with the clean cloths.

It's more for absorbing moisture, I want every thing I pack to have a double function if I can. Better a t-**** than a rag was my thinking.

I keep a full change of clothes (for the season) and have needed to use them several times. Since the bag is in my car its easy to access and use an item when needed.

None of the clothes are anything tactical or special. Just a ordinary change of clothes.

My BOB is big enough and they're light enough so I have one set each of woodland BDU's and a set of digital ACU's. A pair of lightweight wicking socks and heavyweight poly winter sox. Two 'sand' colored wicking t-shirts. Gloves and knit hat are also in there somewhere. Stuff sacks are great for getting all that stuff compressed into really small 'footprint' in the BOB.

I have a pair of old blue jeans, a rib knit shirt, two pair of pants, two pair of socks plus a pair of heavy socks, knit gloves, scarf, toque,

I think a proper go-bag needs to cover you from head to toe. Do you shower in your BDUs? I assume I will be naked when I am forced to bug out and plan accordingly.

good stuff, i like the idea of cliping on an extra bag with boots. I refuse to sleep with boots on.

I also like the trunk kit, I have limited supplies so my trunk kit has been slowly finding it's way into my BOB piece by piece. I tend to bring it with me every where any way.
