I'm in my garage, going through some things from my 17', getting everything ready for the arrival of my new sled.

And i just wondered, what is everyone carrying with them in their bags or packs for backcountry adventures?

Tools, food, survival equipment, etc.

How big is your avy vest?! Nice list!
It's rated at 20L but loses about 2L to the airbag so about 18L. It's packed pretty tight and is heavy but I'm a believer in having survival gear on your person not on your sled.

You list an avy vest, but no mention of the real tools you should be carrying for an avy.. shovel probe and beacon.......

I am hoping you just forgot to list those...........

Yes I carry those in my vest as well.

I also left out water and my food for the day which both go on the sled and often a mid layer as well on the sled to adjust to temps during the day.
