    Good survival pack/ luggage

    I was reading the SAS Survival Handbook by John "Lofty" Wiseman (supposedly a well-known SAS operator/instructor?) and he mentioned having a pack that you could easily attach to your belt that carried your "larger" survival kit (the other one went into a tobacco tin). What type of bag (supposed to be able to attach it to your belt) would you guys recommend?

    Also, what kind of traveling bags/luggage do you guys recommend for quick, durable traveling?

    hmmm... so it's supposed to just attach to your belt?

    have you looked at any maxpedition products?

    they have some sling bags which are awesome survival bags:

    i have the fatboy but the thermite will attach to your leg... the proteus is a pretty versatile lumbar/hand carry/sling bag.

    or, they have specific belt pouches that can hang on your belt alone or attach to other ALICE products:

    the M5 is the "biggest"... but there's lots of options to choose from.

    good luck and let us know what you think or if you find any better options.

    Gee, thanks for making me spend money(JK). I was thinking of getting the jumbo with the m1, m2 pouches, and ccw rig($140 total). I think that this is a great idea with no worries about a cover garment. The only thing is this considered to be a man purse?

    yeah, it's definitely man purse territory. no getting around that one. personally, i like to carry it for extended EDC gear but i am loathe to have to place my firearm in it. i've said it before but i think any sort of attempted robbery/assault will involve the taking of my man purse and i'd rather give up the purse without giving up my weapon (BG is going to be focused on bag... getting gun out of it may be problematic) Once he has my bag, i might have window to draw/run and use/retain gun.

    still, certain times i do use it for CCW and it's very good at that. i'm looking into some of their packs/gearslingers that have a nice small of back carry and not quite as "purse-ish"

    here's their typhoon gearslinger:
