Post Apocalyptic Fast Packs and Random Starting Gear

I always liked the idea of fast packs for RPGs, but I've never really found any done for post apocalyptic settings. For standard Mutant Future I suppose you could use any of the existing fantasy ones, but I like mine to be more post apocalyptic in nature. The Extra Starting Gear/Loot table is somewhat in response to Other Dust's similar table, but expanded to include a LOT more options. It can also double as a random loot the body table by rolling several times.
