Default Bush craft and bugging out bags



Advertise Here

So a solid waxed canvas bag is typically budget breaking the nice ones seem to push 400$+ which hurts me personally not to mention don’t let my wife know. So my question is what bag and or manufacturer gives a good 2–3 bushcraft/bugout bag with a friendly budget of about 150. Maxpedition hazard 4 and all those are good bags however are very tacticool something I lean towards for price point and functionality what I’m looking for is something in between that and straight bushcraft. Like the Duluth bushcraft bag. I’ve been looking and to no avail.



So what bag is this- molle on the sides axe slot in the front with the standard two large pouches and a bucket bag. Ideally something with built in tough strapping adjustable on the bottom for bed roll wool blanket etc. and about a 40 litre capacity. Waist band and breathable back pad.... I want a hybrid of hiking tactical and bushcraft basically do they exist and who makes them

If you add a pack cover that is low key, any pack, no matter how tacticool will not look tacticool.

Just my opinion.

If you can find a Lowe Alpine (or contract)Sting or Stingray you have pretty much what youre looking for with removable rocket pouches and a bucket bag.
Surplus in DPM camo for under $100 if you get lucky.
New in black or green $150 to $200 + if you can convince someone to part with it.
If you can live without the molle search for a Strike.

These are most often Dutch military surplus.

Search this site or either us or uk bushcraft and youll find what Im talking about.

I have about 30 packs. My favorite is my Kelty D4 I bought in 1974. External frame, very comfortable even with large heavy loads, though I'm not doing that anymore if I can help it.
