I had a pack like that for awhile, it began to come apart when it got wet, it was a bit overloaded by the way, so don't let it get wet while it's
Remember that woven materials stretch when moisture gets into the fibers and acts as a lubricant allowing it to stretch and sometimes come apart,
suspend ops in the rain, or cache your gear until it dries out.
When it rains, you are essentially deaf, good to hang tight stay dry and listen close.
I use a VooDoo Tactical Enhanced Tobago Pack, it can be a bit pricey, but the last one I bought I have been using since 2008,$90
Another thing one MUST have is a set of needles for fixing the things we use to carry our stuff, sets of various types of needles can be purchased in
various stores including Wal-Fart, a canvas needle works well with dental floss and is really hard to break.$5
A good item for first aid is a bunch of AB pads and ace bandage, vet wrap, even cloth strips and safety pins, you can literally hold someone's guts
in with these things, or use em for knee pads. A couple bucks at the thrift store for all of this.
Pelican 1010 and other size cases are perfect for your cell-phone cigs and fire starting goodies, heavy ziplock bags work too but if you stash them
critters chew holes in them. This laptop I am typing on now is in a Hardigg Storm Case I bought on Ebay for $72.00. Shock resistant and waterproof,
and useful for storing and protecting other stuff if you find a computer useless, and they really aren't any good for anything anyway aside from
making a sale easier.
Remember that if you have good gear you can use it for trade in the worst case scenario.
Slow small light and quiet.
Anyway, I have been bugged out since 2004, it's fun, y'all should try doing it instead of just talking about it.
Society is a trap, you die in a cage and never realize you are in one.
