PAPrep99 Do you use any waterproofing spray on these bags and how does it work?

The real issue I am having finding a bag is twofold. I like the 1000 denier water resistant Maxpedition bags, like the Vulture II however the lack of pockets is really a downer.

I like the Voodoo Tactical Improved Matrix Pack Backpack MOLLE and the Condor 3 Day Assault Pack and the price is right and it has the features I like however everyone tells me the quality is lower than Maxpedition. Maxpedition does not have a combo I like unless they have one like the two I mentioned.

Drose427 I use a Teton sports Explorer 4000, I go trekking with it to make sure everything holds up and even under about 50lbs and hikes on rough terrain it holds up...I wouldnt recommend it for anyone tall however, when set above 5'8" the height adjustment has a tendency to come loose with a bit of weight, but I'm short so it works for me. Definitely planning of upgrading at some point though

sluggyslugworth Kelty Redwing during the warmer seasons. Jansport Carson when it gets cold, so it can support the larger sleeping gear.

rover Im using a camelback outlaw bag, I think its out of production but their still around on ebay. it is the toughest built bag I've ever seen. I had a molle panel sewn on to it for Just in case, I carry it everywhere so people don't give it a second look anymore.

If I didn't have this bag I would go with a osprey bag, I think their the new Northface of gear bags tbh, for a really big bag I went with a Eagle Inds. airborne II.

PAPrep99 Gotcha. Yeah, my head tells me to get a Maxpedition Vulture II and only buy it once. Don't look back.. I guess I am being a cheapskate and need to get over it.

The only thing I don't like is the small amount of organizational pockets.

mrdeegs I want a maxpedition, but the challenge for me is i actually want to see them in person before deciding...and not many places around here have them. i stopped at an army/navy shop today and grabbed a cheap clone of one for a third of the cost to tide me over.
10-11-2013 09:41 PM
PAPrep99 Still deciding for mine but narrowing it down. Starting with a GHB, maybe 1500-2000 in^3. Maybe a Condor 3 Day assault although it is larger than that.Voodoo Tactical Level III is also under considration.

I just bought a vest on the bay, still waiting for it to arrive. I, too, would like to have the oft used equipment within grabbing range.

jelloman Mine is a SOC "Bug out bag" (I know, I know) in 1000 denier ABU I got off eBay for 60.00...

oldmurph58 you can find alice packs in ucp and woodland on e bay most army navy stores carry them too as for packing them it depends on what you are carring i have 2 2liter canteens on either side of the bag on alice clips on the inside what you need most a poncho ect. goes on top

oldmurph58 i am old school infantry, i have a alice pack with molle straps an waist belt but im looking at the usmc pack and the new molle 2 packs they both seem pretty good for use as a bob if the shtf i want something tough that will stand up to the worst condtions

Tac Medic
SpecOPs "T.H.E. Pack" in Tan. It has the ability to be carried daily and accepts MOLLE pouches easily for extended trips.

Hunter789 I have 4 packs loaded for bear! Only bears will go where I go...
08-11-2013 02:32 PM
ryck I am ashamed to admit that I like the USMC large ruck better than the Army large ruck. It's just built to be better on long hikes. All my other gear is Army, but the marine ILBE MARAT pack is spacious AND comfortable. If only I could find one in ACU print...

Crochunter I have several BOB's. Reason being I am single at the moment and thus need additional BOB's for future girlfriend/fiancÚ/wife and any other close person without a BOB.

Mine is a bright red Dana Design ArcFlex Teraplane internal frame Backpack. It is huge, bomb proof and utterly reliable. It has been the wilderness guide backpack of choice since the late 80's well before the very well made backpacks already mentioned in this thread ( The Kifaru's, Eberstock, etc). I have always wanted one as I was a wilderness education instructor when all I could afford was cheaper REI stuff . They were $600 back in the 80's and early 90's .

It works for me as I can put more stuff in as needed or foraged for. I use it now for hunting trips longer then a day. It is definitely grey man certified . It hides my disassembled AK and Ruger .22.

My other BOB's are actually a mix of normal backpacks and military packs.

riorust I use an Eagle Industries 3 day assault pack in OD, I added a 3 liter bladder and a couple 10x4 pouches with water bottles in them. When fully loaded, I am good for a week at least and it carries well.
