Sir, I seriously doubt if i have anything for you to gain from.
The reason I have made multiple kits is because i dont like packing and unpacking things for every trip. And if i were to pack things i think i might need before every weekend trek or camping trip, I'd end up carrying more unnecessary things than i already do
This is what i typically carry for the overnight camping trips. Not that i may need most of it but having them around is rather cool and they adds up little.
The front and back sides of the unbranded waist pouch that came as part of a backpack. It has two zipped pouched on either side of and a zipped compartment in front of the main compartment.
The front compartment shown above has the following:
A canvas roll which contains:
1. Sewing kit with three bobbins of high stength thread, assorted sizes of needles, assorted size of buttons, a folding scissor.
2. A fishing kit with assorted hooks and weights, 100ft 40lb fishing line, silicon worm baits (which look and feel pretty close to the real thing!)
3. A full roll of aluminium foil neatly folded up.
4. A small kabar piggyback knife.
All of the above get rolled into the canvas case like this:
The above battery bank also goes into the front pocket. It claims to be water proof and solar chargeable. Also the small "field sharpener" which isnt great but may help in a pinch.

Of my third and final kit, i will only post some old photos i have since it will take a long time to even list the contents let alone properly photograph and document it
The backpack is unbranded and was got off ebay. It came with two molle pouches to be attached to the side and the waist pack shown previously(kit 2). Happy with the overall quality though all the zippers had to be replaced.
And no, the Esee Junglas isn't molled to the bag that way when i do take it along with me
