Bandanna
Boo-boo kit w/ moleskin
Quickclot gauze
Neoprene face mask (kinda stupid)
6'' Isreali that kinda sticks out the topp alittle

Still experimenting......could really lighten it up some

Thanks guys. I've been fighting the weight vs need demon on my new set up and sometimes reading the thoughts of others helps.

I think I have it shaved down to what I consider essentials while still having some nice to haves.

Now I have to get out and run it a few more times.
