I went to New Orleans to help out after the hurricane and I took my Alice Pack. We were in the outer realm of the city for one week clearing debris and helping to get the power back on. Everyday I took my Alice with me with some basic gear. And everyday someone came up to me for more help because they thought I was in the military which I am. But I was in Civilian clothes it was the damn camo pack. If SHTF the last thing you want is people clinging to you because they think your a soldier or some crap. When ppl panic they look to the police and soldiers for help. Do yourselves a favor and get normal looking gear BLEND IN.
