Now i know that packing a bergen is a personal thing when SOPs are not in place, we all have different ways of doing it. But im finding them im carrying the same kit of everybody else in my platoon but still have one of the heaviest bergens in my platoon, so i want to go back to basics try to sort out any stupid mistakes. Thanks in advance, the current packing method is: Left rocket -Spare socks and underwear -Rations in an old S6 resperator haversack (food and minimum brew kit) -Wash kit in a 20x20x6cm plastic box. Contains mirror, small shave balm, small moisturiser, hand sanitizer, talc, disposable razors, shaving oil, toothpaste and tooth brush Right rocket -Water proofs -Gators -Softie Main body -Softie sleeping bag -2l camelback -Daysack -Spare uniform Top lid = Bash kit Inside lid pouch = 2 x A4 zip lock bags, one for rubbish and one for fablon and stuff for orders admin. Utility pouch on the front = Water bottle for cooking/spare water Im thinking the main problem may be the placing of the wash kit and rations and also what im storing them in. Any suggestions?
