    Bugging out! BOBing for MOLLE's

    Hello again my "two N D" friends, it's your resident gun newb again.

    This time I'm looking for a recommendation on a pack to use to setup a proper bugout bag. The two I have been looking at is the Condor Tactial large Molle system and the 5.11 72 hour Molle pack. Both have been getting good remarks, but they are very different in price. Is there any other reason for this other than brand name? Perhaps you guys and gals can offer other recommendations.

    Thanks again
    Matt

    Go to goodwill and buy a used inconspicuous back pack. I bought a nice heavy duty LL Bean bag for cheap and that's what I use. You dont want to stick out in a real situation.

    I don't know. I want something that is functional and efficient. I'm not sure a goodwill bag is going to suit my needs. I think I would be ok with a single color bag. If I went camo, that would really stick out. At least where I live it would.

    I have a Camelbak BEF pack. The only advice I can give is to have a hydro system incorporated in the bag

    It also has the MOLLE stripes you're looking for.

    Hi Matt

    It warms my heart to see a person on a hunt for a suitable Bug Out Bag.

    You would be OK with either of those two.

    You should also take a look at the Camelbak offerings which I think have the best interior set-up. Just my personal opinion on that.

    I am using the Camelbak BMF.

    I would suggest that rather than just looking at still pictures which can only tell you so much...you should search each one on YouTube and check out the Video reviews of all that you may be interested in. Much of your ultimate decision will be personal preference.

    Another bag that you may want to check out would be the Maxpedition 514B VULTURE II which is a 3 Day.

    That is also a popular B.O.B.

    Don't forget to also shop for a few MAXPEDITION Grimloc locking D rings which come in super handy on a B.O.B.
    What a great and practical invention.

    I am a fan of the Rush bags myself. My every day bag is a Rush 12 but I do have a few 24's stashed in vehicles and in the basement.

    Just picked up a rush 72 a couple of weeks ago. The thing is huge and full it weighs a ton.
    Good bag, but too big for me to handle on anything but real short hikes.

    also have a MOAB10 just a little too small for my needs and only has the one strap.

    well made packs with plenty of places to stash stuff.

    My "gut" tells me that this is going to get quite confusing for this OP after all is said and done.

    For some much needed added confusion, don't forget about your dog. They can be useful too.

    My suggestion is to decide what equipment you're going to carry, then find a sturdy, subdued, affordable bag with hydration system to put the stuff in that is big enough, but not much bigger. I carry a Camelbak Talon. My son carries a Condor (not sure the model). Both work well. I was a SERE Instructor for years, and people tend to want to take everything for every situation. Toss in the kitchen sink as "they" say. Soon, you can't tell the difference between your BOB and your expedition pack for a week in the Smokey Mountains. One of our catch phrases was "a survival expert is one who trains to do more and more, with less and less, until he can do everything with nothing." :-)

    That is good and wise advice archer. Unfortunately it is not great advice for me. Because if I Bug Out things are really going to have to be Serious SHTF and I will be humping for 2 adult people since my Wife can carry very little due to an earlier whiplash injury.

    They will be serving Renuite On Ice in Hades before my Wife will ever do everything with nothing.
    So my BOB is Heavy (though I HAVE managed to lighten things up a bit by doing some judicious "switching out" of some items) and I just plan on caching some items if necessary if things begin to get too heavy - since I am not getting any younger as the years roll on by.
    Though I try hard to stay in decent shape.

    Cacheing is a great idea, although at my age, I can't remember what I had for breakfast yesterday, much less where I stored my 30 day supply of food in the Pisgah Mountains!
