Like others have said, if you aren't in an armored unit, you carry all of your stuff with you all the time. Its normally just basic stuff like water, radios, batteries, ammo, first aid stuff, weapons, and some food (some other miscellaneous necessities). The point is, if you are engaged all of that stuff stays on your back because it is all necessary.

Something I just thought to put in here as a side note. Your pack weighs anywhere from 55-85lbs. (Radios weigh A LOT!), but even without your pack you have your weapon(s), body armor with plates, loaded magazines, a grenade or two, your kevlar, and boots. That crap weighs a lot too.
