Sleeping bag, ground sheet, bivi bag, spare socks, small toiletries roll, octopus straps, cold weather woolen undershirt... and thats about it. The rest of the space is dedicated to other stores such as rat packs, batteries, ammo, ninnox etc etc etc.

Well now my rucksack holds beer, hotdogs, and chips. It really works great for the beach.

Back in service it held sleeping bag, shelter half, extra set of BDUs, MREs, Ammo, cleaning kit, Water, and such.

Dust and rat poop last time I looked at it. Been a while since it's been out of the house.

From bottom to top: spare boots with as many socks I can fit in them, MOPP suit, extra set ACU's, IPFU, skivvies, toiletries, and in the radio pouch; any extra ammo I can scrounge for myself or later for my buddies. In the outer pockets: wet weather gear. Strapped to the top of the ruck, a tanker's roll. Clipped to the side, a trusty E-tool.

Just the bare necessities; the mission will ultimately decide what to bring or leave out.
