Question from a reader: Quick Recon Kit

PL sent the following question:

You always talk about recon gear. Do you guys have a quick recon bag ready in case you need to just go and do it?

Answer:

Yes. Sometimes part of the team in out performing a recon and some of the other guys might be pulled into the recon too.

In my case I have small ruck with a camera, scope, entry kit, note taking things and some other stuff. I carry it on a GORUCK Bullet 10, with the camera and other optics inside a GR2 Field Pocket and the "Sneak and Peek" kit inside the RR Field Pocket. Some other gear include a Field Notes and a pen, a small pouch with fake ID badges and other IDs, tape and a small rain jacket just in case.
