  1. Reviews & Questions For Vendors
    This is my first post here, just started getting into hiking, camping again. I just purchased a 3 day assault bag from this company. http://www.armynavydeals.com/asp/products_details.asp?SKU=CD125&ST=2 I received it yesterday and overall it looks great, however I am wondering if anyone has a...
  2. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    There's lots of discussion here about what to put in the bag, but I think there is a lot to be said about the bag/backpack its self. Are there any that stand out to you guys? What materials and features would be most suitable for the possibility of having to live out of this bag indefinitely...

  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I posted this one another forum so I thought I'd try it here too. I dug out an old CFP-90 that I had in the closet for years. I've been planning on revamping it from camping into a BOB. While looking it over I found that the suspension/shoulder strap set-up broke. I've looked around the net...

    This is really me with my daypack. Look at my avatar, see the pack on my back, its the same one in as in this video. This video was not rehearsed, my son and I just grabbed the camera, my pack and did this video. The video was just uploaded to youtube, so it might take a little while before...
