It's an excellent and tough pack. If you can load it with what you deem necessary and carry the weight, you can't go wrong.

Got the same bag as JD and Jack, the Maxpedition Monsoon Gearslinger Shoulder Pack. It is a great pack and easy to carry.



The best price I found was on eBay:

Maxpedition Monsoon Gearslinger Black Shoulder Pack - eBay (item 260626573678 end time Jul-27-10 08:16:23 PDT)

MAXPEDITION MONSOON GEARSLINGER SHOULDER PACK BACKPACK - eBay (item 220590905335 end time Jul-15-10 19:40:17 PDT)

And not to hijack since the focus is on BOBs, I've been really interested in first aid bags. I will want a couple of BOBs, a large first aid bag (over the shoulder for the whole family if we bug out) and at least 3 smaller bags that can be held in one hand (for cars and such).

That LA Police Gear is a GREAT resource! Thanks!

Hey - I've been looking for some bags myself - likely a 72 hour pack for now. If your into the medical packs and are likely to ahve a family or group to carry other stuff you might want to check out 5.11
They have 2 "medical packs" the Responder 24, and the Responder 84 ALS.
They seem like normal 24, and 72 hour packs but are designed for emergency response. From what I can see the 84 ALS is a major medic bag with air-tank straps and all that. The 24 one seems more run-of-the-mill.

Now I'm wondeirng though, for outdoor/emergency bags are tactical shops really necessary, or are sporting goods stores that sell bags for backpackers and hikers sufficient? Is there a real difference between the two or do the tactical places just sell things in cadpat and charge more...

Also, I'm kinda small (about 5.5" 120lbs?. So my question is for anyone whos had experience, is a 72 hour pack going to be ridiculous on me? - especially if I have to move about. I'm not sure what a loaded pack would weigh in at, or if I would be better off just stocking a 24 hour pack and being able to move easier.

Thanks.

Glad the OP is happy with his purchase, but just as a note, I picked up a Maxpedition Pygmy Falcon II a while back, the idea being that it can carry enough to get me from school to home in a bug-out scenario. Works perfectly for that, carrying a thorough 1-2 days of supplies. It's slightly smaller inside than the Monsoon Gearslinger mentioned by JD, Cane, and Jack, (1400 cc compared to 1600), but the additional bottle-pouch helps make up for it (+1000 cc with a 1-liter bottle), and the second strap is a plus for a 60-mile hike.

The newer MOLLE gear is nice because at places like Cheaper Than Dirt - America's Ultimate Shooting Sports Discounter you can by trauma kits and first aid kits that attach to the packs.

Damn Shame!! I have just heard about this and his business was one I visited all the time when he was a 3 machine shop in the back of a warehouse.

Logan was a great guy and he was very funny to hang out with.

Died in a Ferrari accident though, so I guess if you have to go....

Rest in Peace Logan.
