    Awhile back I bought a military surplus patrol pack. Shortly after buying the patrol pack I posted a first impressions video. Now I am posting a follow up review video. when I made the patrol pack follow up review video I did not realize I have had the pack for over a year. So over the...

    I've got a nine day tactical field exercise coming up with about 150 other people, a lot of long range patrolling,setting up observation posts contact drills etc. However i've been warned by people who have gone on it before to pack next to nothing. So I've been trying to cut weigh of my...

    Thanks to my new new bud, Bushman Bryan, I have an absolutely perfect example of what looks to be an unissued/new Swiss Engineer's Rucksack in darn near immaculate condition. It's absolutely clean in/out and besides the normal storage patina, everything is in working order. I haven't even...

    Hi all, I thought I'd post my latest video review of a new backpack I bought. This is the BlackWolf Titanium 35 daypack that will eventually serve as my urban BOB pack. You can view the video here: http://youtu.be/xML4mHtBSG8 I did have a few problems with the pack design, but nothing I...

    I have this campers backpack that is pretty awesome, was bought many years ago (from my childhood, Im 33 yrs old now). But its just too big. I need something I can wear while I ride a horse or motorcycle. This one the frame goes down near or past the buttocks :xeye: and I cant sit comfortably...

    I got an internship as a Wilderness Ranger working for the Forest Service. My only problem is my ruck is a molle 2 and I don't think that is quite appropriate for the job. I'm not too familiar with civilian companies that make reasonably priced rucks for backcountry hiking. I was looking at...

    I'm looking for a small Maxpedition (or similar) bag which will hold a Nalgene water bottle (I use one everyday so I already have it with me, I'd just need to slip it in to the bag I want if I needed to bug out), a small PSK, a fixed blade knife (like Mora sized), possibly a PFD (one of the real...

    Though a long-time advocate of the Sitka Gearslinger bag from Maxpedition, I've recently switched to the Falcon 2, also from Maxpedition. Both bags have great everyday carry features, and like all things from Maxpedition, they're both built with superb quality control. For a list of pros and...

    Hey people! I am looking for a new daypack but with sooo many options out there I was looking for suggestions to speed the search. Maybe the suggestions will not be "daypacks" but small-ish packs. I have a few things I'd like to see incorporated. --Internal frame (like the Vaude Wizard 24+4)...

    I was thinking about getting one of the camelbak bags (one with more storage and with the hydration bladder), to use as a GHB. just wondering if any one is using one what model they have and how they like it.

    So my idea is to bug in, however after the initial S hitting the fan (not to say things will completely calm down) but when things do "calm down" I plan on using a backpack for a little Urban adventure if thats what you want to call it. Now what I would do is search abandon houses, gather water...

    The Maxpedition Sitka Gearslinger is everything you might expect to find in a daypack – and more. There is a pouch on the outside for a 32 ounce water bottle, a compartment for a water bladder, the main compartment is big enough for a Meal Ready to Eat (MRE), or an Eversafe meal, rain poncho...

    Yesterday I recieved a Camelbak BFM I traded for from a gentleman on the BushcraftUSA forum. Here's some pics and initial thoughts. First off, this thing is BIG. I'd consider it a 1 week pack, more than a 72 hr pack. You can fit a lot of stuff in here and I'd imagine still have it pretty...

    So what defines a pack as being "warm weather?"  The fact that there is no room for spare clothing in the pack, and that almost no extra clothing is brought on the trip.  With cold weather, the hiker or camper might want to bring along some extra clothing, just in case temps drop lower then...

    After owning lots of packs, and from a lot of different companies, I can say that I finally found a brand name that I like. And that is Maxpedition. Rarely, and I mean rarely do I find a piece of equipment that I really like. But this is the exception. The fannypack is made out of durable...

    Its ok to be jealous, really it is. I happened to have caught a Camelbak Raider on sale for 1/2 price. And it was the last one the store had.
