  1. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    I've been debating back and forth for awhile between getting a Helcat and the ILBE, and have decided to go with the ILBE. One of the things I liked about the Helcat but haven't seen addressed with the ILBE is that the Helcat that had a specific pouch for the MSS. I was wondering how everyone...

    I've never used a Molle pack system. I got this new Pack off of Ebay and used the supplied Ebay link to put it together. But the video stops at attaching the main pack. I got the two side packs on but I'm having a little problem with the bottom pack. I know I'm not attaching it properly as it...

    I managed to find a CFP-90 pack in excellent condition on eBay for under 80 bucks, and would like some assistance in modifying this to fit my needs. A disclaimer for those who have heard horrible things about the CFP-90, the horror stories of packs busting open at the seams only happens on...

    Didn't want to steal another poster's thread so the reason for this post. My question is...since my wife and I each got ourselves identical backpacks that we will be carrying either to get home or in the extreme chance of leaving our present location, should we equip each one with identical...

    Hi all! I was just wondering if anyone had ever considered a handheld Microcurrent E-Stim unit in their preps for helping to heal infected wounds. I use it in my practice for healing persistent decubitus ulcers, dehissed wounds and infected wounds, but it has never occurred to me that I can get...

    I got real lucky. Like I did with my MSS set, I managed to get in on the bidding of an ILBE at the last minute in the wee hours of the morning and scored this one in new condition with a new lid, no stains, no tears, no wear, no names written on it. It's in absolutely great condition in/out...

    I'm not looking to make this a typical BOB post. I did some searches and didn't find what I wanted. Since I'm male, I'm honoring the rule of not posting in the Ladies section so I'm hoping to get some input from the ladies here. We only ended up with tree damage from Sandy but it reinforced...

    Last weekend I had the opportunity to test my BOB. I threw it in the car as we were leaving for the mountains. I didn't give it a thought. When we got there some relatives decided to do some shooting so I grabbed the BOB since I keep a .22 single action revolver in there. We hiked up in...

    It seem there is a lot of opinions about what goes into a BOB but there seems to be even more opinions on what the BOB is used for. My personal BOB is designed for a very long term detour from society and conveniences. Some people's idea of bugging out may be a weeks worth of camping. What is...

    I'm sure this has been asked a thousand times but does a military backpack with molle used as a bug out bag attract unwanted attention or is it fine to use one?
