What kind of bug out bag (BOB) are you using?

Backpack, dufflebag, or something else.

The one I use is my companies bullet resistant backpack (level IIIa).

The panel only adds 20 ounces additional weight.

My wife's has a smaller backpack and adds our stand alone panel (level IIIa) into it, making her backpack "bulletproof" (not the correct word, but easier to understand).

Of my 2 kids, one uses the smaller backpack we have and one uses a junior sized stand alone panel.

I also have 4 bullet resistant vests (executive level IIIa) in my duffle that I would throw in the BOV if we're leaving.

This may sound like SPAM, but;

The "Executive Vest" lays flat and fits into a standard briefcase and only weighs 40 ounces.

I have a set of Kifaru backbacks, but they are kept on a Cabela's game cart along with 3 loaded 24-gallon Rubbermaid Action Packer totes.

I don't want anything camo. I also want quality. I finaly purchased my pack after reading about peoples on this site since I joined. I don't think anyone has one like this, but I love mine. It's big, but I'm glad it is. Top notch quality all the way and handmade.

Duluth Pack Monarch #4

Edit: I'll post a review up soon when I get time.

I'm thinking I'm gonna go with a green Kelty Redwing 3100 for me and a green Kelty Redwing 2650 for the girlfriend. Not military grade, but they are durable. Have a couple of friends who swear by them for travel and hiking both. And I figure they won't stand out too much in a crowd. I'll just have to pick up some camo or OD rain covers for them so we can blend into the background a little more if necessary.

I have a Molle II but I am beginning to regret getting it because if I was wearing it in a crowd I would stick out like a sore thumb. I do live right next to a Marine base and there are a lot of active and prior Marines (including me) around so maybe it wouldn't be too shocking to see and make me a target. I am still not sure about it. I could supplement with a reg backpack or some duffel bags if I have to BO on foot.

I use a black Becker Patrol Pack. Nice top loader, and it carries about 50 lb. comfortably. It's a bit pricey, but I got a good deal on it a few years back.
