    Respectfully, I think you are looking at 75 to 80 pounds (or more) with all that stuff in a BOB. May want to try and hike with that before you finalize your BOB.

    No firearm or ammo?

    30 chemlights/glow sticks?

    Your clothing selections alone will fill a single backpack....

    Have you tried any of this out yet? How do you carry it all?
    Some days, you should just stay home in bed....

    I know the general area of where you are influences what goes in your bag, based on climate and geography, plus personal preference. But that will be a pretty large pack. I have my medium sized ruck, plus boxes of other supplies for if I can get out with them in a vehicle. But if I have to walk out with only what I can carry, I have that bag packed with essentials and ready to go. But that's a fairly thorough list you have.

    YOu have the right idea with your list, but I would also suggest that you need to experiment with the contents and draw from each area of the list until you get a useable mixture that you can actually carry.

    I think everyone think's all the things they pack the first time are must have's. Let him pack all he wants. He will learn really quick what are needs and what are wants. I sure learned the hard way a few weeks ago taking my BOB for it's first trip. When I got back I took out about half the crap. we all have to learn some time. to be fair better to have to much to start out with than not enough. the More you use it the more you will realize what ya need.

    Something I learned I needed and did not have was a good frying pan, and those that are hatters on Shovels, My Bob is getting one. totally underestimated tool.

    I can't think of a thing chem lights are good for. For the weight of 30 chem lights you could carry a sleeping bag.

    There is no "off" switch on a chem lite, which can get you found/captured/killed in a hurry in the wrong situation.

    There is always burying it. That pretty much turns a chem light "off". If you have caves that you want to search for a reasonable BOL or midway camp you should include a roll of heavy string.
