Here is something I know remarkedly little about, I'm used to military webbing and small pouches.
I seek advice and guidance on buying a smallish Rucksack of say betwen 30 and 50 litres, preferably black in colour, well compartmentalised, and with
plenty of places to clip stuff to.
I intend to develop a cut down or minaturised Bug Out Bag for myself, Its going to have to be suited for tactical use so I dont want , spec cases,
lights, carabiners,flashlights, compasses extra pouches attached to the outside tattling around attracting unwanted attention.I have never yet
understood why so many BOBs, Inchs and GOOD bag owner appear to be so keen to display for all to see their tools, kit and expensive gadgets clipped to
the outside of their rucks, they are just saying " Please Rob Me". A properly assembled but is very low profile, boring and unattractive by design
as we dont want to attract unwanted attention, its part of the grey Man process.
I am looking for affordability not crazy trendy bags with huge price tags, I want this concept to work out affordable for most people.
I am looking for durability, the back needs to have more in common with 1000 denier cordura nylon, than thin school bag nylon.
It needs to have decent quality stitching and zips.
Can we please start a thread on this and keep on topic until we attempt to develop a commonly agreed standard?
Once we have reached a general consenus we can start debating about what to put in it .
