    I always wear a stoney creek bum bag which sits well on top of me hips. In it Knife , Spare ammo ( usually 3 rounds ) , Rubber tube , Lighter , GPS , Epirb , couple of spare batteries , Head torch , Phone /Camera , Some draw string , lens cleaning cloth, Some mutton cloth for meat , and insect repellant ( if apllicable ).
    This is pretty lightweight and I can leave camp in the morning and stay out all day ( With a day pack contents being a goretex jacket , Water bladder and some food ) and if I did have a night out im prepared. My binos stay round the neck and in me top pocket.

    Theres some good ideas coming out here. I can see myself adopting a couple of them as I need to upgrade my belt as its about f**ked from 30+ years of use. My son (17) is just getting going hunting on his own now and was looking for advise on this stuff as well.
    I can remember one time that I had a stuff up with my belt, took a shit before heading up the hill for some tahr and yep I got 3/4 of the way up and hello no bloody belt Since then I always do the 360 look around the ground every time I get off my arse to make sure I have everything

    I can relate to that. Did the same in the Ruahines meat hunting but I never found mine. Its something you only do once.

    I carry a belt knife and a small pouch with enough to see me through if I become detached from a small duplicate set in my daybag or pack. I lost myself once in Pureora and have never felt so naked without sufficient self-support gear as I now carry.

    When I first starting out hunting I used to carry it in a sheath on a belt, nowadays In my daypack, always in the same spot so I know where to get it.
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!

    If you put it inside the front of youre pants it makes it look like you have more length...ecspecialy when it flaps around
    but in seriousness I have mine on my bum bag waist strap and dont have any problems with it getting caught on anything.

    Funny, We have a mutual friend who spent rather a long time looking for his .243 and day pack after he put them down to go for a "dump".

    Unfortunately i was laughing too much to help him look for them.

    Wear a leather belt everyday, when hunting, I have my knife on a belt, also the inside of my hunting belt has a smurf poo on it in case I need to strop my knife, never felt like Rambo .

    @Brian or @Tahr have one strapped onto the outside of their day pack, thinking about it it's probably Brian, Bruce's knives are all to valuable

    I always have two knifes as well, main knife in pack and a mercator as spare always in my emergency pouch also in pack. Plb also in emergency pouch in pack but seriously thinking I need to relocate that to on me somehow.

    Wearing a belt would drive me nuts.

    Iím using a twinneedle Hunterís belt with a twinneedle lfp pack which is very small and low profile but has a lot of expansion in the back panel. I have a fixed knife on the belt but might put that in the bag and go to a folder on the belt.

    I'm just trying out 2 rear army utility pouches and PLB on a belt together with bino case with kill-kit (including knife) and range finder in. That gives me a lot of space for stuff including FAK, water, snacks, meat bag/sheet and with rubber shock cord on top i can easily chuck on a extra waterproof etc. I'm used to wearing webbing so those utility pouches are comfortable enough for me as they sit high on the hips and their weight is taken by the small of the back. This will also allow me to rotate them to the front and wear AARN front pack style whilst having on my main pack(with their weight distributed to the main pack hip belt).

    I was wearing 4 utility pouches but the weight of those without a hardness was a bit heavy. People who want a vest might want to consider the stock standard army style vest like this one https://www.trademe.co.nz/sports/hun...e7230b2710691c. Wore one for years and was comfy and roomy...
