    My B.O.B is a work in progress. I find that I'm never satisfied with it, not even close. To heavy, wrong contents, wrong bag, whatever my thoughts may be. It mostly comes down to what I want to have vs. weight. I'm a backpacker so this issue is not new to me but with backpacking i'm not as...

    Good afternoon all, I hope you are all doing well. If you categorized the contents of your BOB, GHB, 72hr pack or what have you into separate, well, categories, what would be the result? The main reasoning behind this is to be able to focus on a particular category to determine what/what not to...

    Hey all, i'm looking to get a BOB for around $50. I currently have an alice but the giant 1 pocket system is too unorganized for my liking. so i'm looking for either a decent pack for a decent price or a pocketed option that uses the ALICE frame.

    These are bags you can setup, to be grabbed and thrown into a car in a SHTF Emergency. I got most of these things on Amazon over a period of time. They sell everything the cheapest, with extremely quick shipping. Feel free to add suggestions. And heres a video of BOB (Bug Out Bag) Basics...

    Hi, I'm sorry if this is redundant as i'm sure many have asked...but I was hoping for some advice on backpacks. I, of course want something comfortable, quality, and large. I've been looking at the Camelbak BFM, or Voodoo tobago Molle, or the 5.11 72 rush. Wondered if anyone carried these for...

    Whats in your BOB? What exactly will you be doing with your BOB? I see some people putting together INCH bags and calling them BOBs. BOBs require BOLs, while INCH bags do not. I have a few possible BOLs. I'll be trying to drive initially, with a trailer filled with fuel and a bicycle on the...

    I came to a stand still here, trying to think of something that no one has come up with and so on, but I found that to be a little difficult. Considering that I'm nearly positive that this kind of thread has been made before. So I guess this is just for me. What, in your own opinion, are the...

    I'm already stockpiled a good portion of guns and ammo (Rifle, pistol and 1000 rounds for each). Now I'm looking at acquiring the necessary items for surviving (or hiking) in the wilderness for an extended period of time (over a month). The the total weight of the backpack must not be over 50...

    We see post about Bug Out Bags all the time here on Boards. Many of the threads contain questions about a particular setup, what one should pack or if a specific piece of equipment is good to add. All of these questions are extremely hard to answer and One Size Do Fit All. Instead of asking you...

    Hello everyone, I've just finished making my first BOB. Its goal is to get me through the first 72 hours after an earthquake. I live on the west coast in a major population center that is in a high risk earthquake zone. I used an old duffel bag as a container and mostly used old stuff from...

    Few people know of this great fire starter. I have successfully used it many times to light fires in pouring rain & high winds. I consider it a *must have* because the heat and energy created, will ignite anything flammable, especially if your wood supply is wet. It is a chemical reaction that...

    Just thought I would start a thread discussing the many uses of zip ties. Feel free to list your ideas. I believe they are a good addition to your bob , and they will take up zery little space.

For the most part the food bag contains a single burner stove for a bug out bag, pot for cooking, eating utensils, lighter and matches for the stove...

    Hi, I was wondering what kind of backpack to use for my bug out bag. I want something that looks kind of covert, so no camo. I have read some threads and heard the north face, maxpedition, and 5-11 backpacks be recommended. What should I use? It should be under $150.
