The problem with a lot of what people are packing is that they seem to have confused a BOB with a GHB. This isn't some contest to see how much stuff you have on your person. One day, they may come to realize how silly it is to carry a lot of crap that you'll never use if your only goal is to walk home. And yeah, you can have all sorts of stuff with you and discard it along the way, but then you are:
1. Less mobile.
2. Wasting energy carrying unnecessary stuff.
3. Wasting time picking through your bag to find things to discard.
4. Wasting your resources on things you will never use.
