Default Gear Bags; How do you stock yours

I'm trying to get more organized and may be going a bit overboard, and wonder how you organize your Patrol/ Shooting gear life.

I've gone from a STUFFED patrol bag and undersized range bag, to a 5.11 Patrol bag, 5.11 Range Bag, 5.11 Bail Out Bag and a small Tactical medical kit (IFAK on Steroids). I keep these bags in either my personal or patrol vehicle accordingly

The Range Bag is pretty easy, however I see many put their cleaning and repair gear in theirs, where I have a separate kit.

The BOB is a new bag to my collection and is causing some consternation. If you Google it, you get SHTF survival stuff. I'm think more along the lines of the Active Shooter scenario.

Lists so Far

Range Bag

Glasses / eye protection
Ear protection muffs and plugs
Spare eye protection
Spare ear plugs
Guns
Magazines / Speed loader
AMMO, Small supply, extra in BOB
Range key / passes / membership ID
Targets
Lens cleaner
Ziplock bag for spent ammo
Duct tape
Adhesive tape / masking tape
Marking pens red, black Sharpie(tm)/ Chalk
Zip ties/ Thumb tacks
Extra batteries (9V, AAA, AA, LR44, CR2016...)
Disposable gloves / nytril
Hat/cap
Bottled water
Cleaning wipes / Wet wipes
Hand gel
Bug Repellant
Sun screen
Lip balm
Gloves
Leatherman/Multitool
Gun oil
Cotton rags
Individually packed oil pads/wipes
Dummy rounds for verifying action
Binoculars
Rain poncho

Patrol Bag

Penal Code Book
Paper map of area
General Orders/Policy
Traffic Vest
Evidence bags!
File Folder with multiple copies all paperwork that is offered
extra batteries
extra handcuffs and keys
a good folding knife
many notepads and pens/highlighters
lysol
hand sanitizer
water
a snack of some sort
Vicks Vaporub
Compass
Mints/Gum/etc
Aspirin/Excedrine
100' 550 cord
Extra batteries for my non-recharging flash light
Rain cover for my patrol cap
Two pair of gloves (search/blood pathogen)
Emergency Response Guidebook (Hazmat)
Lock picking tool set
Paracord
Tactical flashlight
Camera

BOB

Carbine Magazines
Hand Gun Magazines
12gg Buck and Slugs
Flex Ties
Water
Paracord

I'm looking forward to your input.

Add more gloves. I guess it depends on the area you work, but I sure go through a lot. Few pairs in the sap pockets and a box in my bag.

I also have the above items in my 5.11 mission rolling duffel with the addition of a ballistic helmet, rifle plates/carrier with AR-15 mags on chest, and a thigh rig magazine holder.

It gets pretty heavy but in an active shooter situation, the above can be donned in less than 2 minutes. A rolling bag helps with the weight. You will get reassed by your partners saying "you going to the airport with that" and so on.

Nytril or Leather? I buy the Black Tactical Nytril's by the BOX and had not considered putting them everywhere, but think it would be a good idea.

Holy crap that's a lot! When I was on FTO I had the patrol bag, on probation I had some sort of accordion folder, 1st year off probation and throughout the years all I have is my tag book with stuff folded inside. If I'm on patrol that's it. Every car comes with a trauma kit.

Too much weight for me, opted for thumbtack instead. Is an option though.

The nytrile gloves. They're a lifesaver. Literally. We've had guys come down with MRSA from touching some parolees. Carry a few pairs on your person and have a sufficient amount in your bag to replenish.

Speaking from experience, you don't want MRSA. I've had it twice and the first time it required surgery. I was lucky it hadn't traveled a few inches more or I would have been in serious trouble.

The second time, which occurred from a bug bite at the Barstow Zombie shoot in 2010 and was shortly after the first time, one of the meds used in the first one didn't work anymore. Not a fun time.

I had not thought of keeping nytrile gloves everywhere, but I have seen MRSA and want no part of it. They are NOW everywhere!

I'd say that I started off with a complete and highly organized Warbag and BoB. Now the stuff I actually use (gloves, batteries, camera, etc) is on top and everything else is all jumbled underneath it.

If you work alone an Uncle Mike's carseat organizer is VITAL! Have you ever seen a posse box go flying around during a C3 roll?
