I bought one of these and I really like it . http://www.cabelas.com/product/Shooting/Tactical-Gear/Tactical-Packs|/pc/104792580/c/104778180/sc/157712580/Red-Rock-Outdoor-Gear-Large-Assault-Pack/1627786.uts?destination=/catalog/browse/tactical-packs/_/N-1107844/Ns-CATEGORY_SEQ_157712580?WTz_l=SBC;MMcat104792580;ca t104778180&WTz_l=SBC;MMcat104792580;cat104778180;c at157712580&avad=55097_c65a6e3b&WT.mc_id=al40661&r id=12&WT.tsrc=AFF
. In my pack is alot of stuff including my AK pistol and a few mags . it doesnt look that big until you open it up but i also use it for 3 day kayaking/ camping excursions. I keep rain gear, cooking gear, alcohol stove, first aid gear, a military bivy sack , spare change of clothes, 10x12 nylon tarp , paracord , all weather playing cards, 2.5 liter hudration bag, Food, water filter , flashlights, fire starting goodies , etc It does hold alot more than one would expect . It has heavily padded back and shoulder straps, sternum strap and large waist belt . It is a 35 liter pack. I have no idea what it weighs full but its heavy, the seams are heavily stitched and its pretty heavy material . Best part is the price, it was a good buy . I got mine 10% off and had gift cards I needed to use

There are lots of people and place out there that are selling prepacked packs " Ebay , Amazon" etc . but you pay a huge price for one prepacked . You will find that you can buy the pack and everything that are everyday essentials for half of what people are charging for prepacked packs and alot of the stuff in them you will never need or even use. I suggest packing your own pack with what you think you will need . Go bug out living out of that pack for 3 days and you will find out what you wish you had thats not in there and what you will never use that you have with you . .
If you would like a detailed list I can help you with what I carry in mine .
Most of the stuff you can get at Dollar stores and do it very cheap and very reasonably

I made bugout bags from old laptop carry cases for most of my guns. Got them free from my employer who was just going to throw them out when they replace our laptops with new ones. Several websites provide BOB suggested items but I figure you need to pack what makes sense to you in your situation. I bet there's lots of things laying around your home would be good to add to your bag. Candles, batteries , flashlights, matches, rope pocket knives, etc.

You have $300 to spend on the bag, or bag AND supplies? My bug out bag and 3 days hiker is a 511 Tactical Rush 72. I paid $140 for it on amazon. Imho it is one of THE best 3 day bags that money can buy. The bag is rugged, roomy, and the organization is phenomenal.
