Recently one of our guests demonstrated his gear and his expert technique of field dressing his animal. It was impressive to see how well prepared he was. He always carries a back pack with his water and emergency food but along with that he carries a very lightweight but extremely effective kit to skin and dress an animal in the bush. It was very light but had everything he needed to achieve a great outcome and keep his meat (and himself) clean .
There are the obvious tools for skinning but also lightweight disposable gloves, an emergency survival blanket to put on the ground to keep everything clean, some plastic bags to put various parts in, some hooks for hanging, and even water to wash hands or finished products. There was also muslin fabric bags to keep the flies away. One essential piece of advice was make sure everything is bright orange so you don't lose your valuable knives in the grass
