It depends a lot on the mission how much I will personally be caring. Generally my load on a quick hit is close to 90lbs (41kg). When carried on our [kit](http://imgur.com/a06XKhV) close to the body it’s not that bad. If we’re going to be out longer, I might carry more. In addition, each individual has a bleeder kit with basic supplies, and each squad will have a trained and certified EMT carrying EMT-level supplies on their kit about the size of a CLS bag. So I do carry quite a bit, but there is also a bunch spread around the platoon. And I’m not carrying a litter or ladder or any of the numerous other large items we sometimes have. We always try to have at least two medics out as well.
