Default Bug Out Bags

If this has been covered, then my apologies, I didn't see a topic on this.

I know the issue of what to put in a bug out bag has been beaten like a dead horse. But what about the bag itself? Anyone have a specific bag they like? I'm in the market for a bag, I'd like it to hold some ammo, mags, and a decent amount of bug out gear. Because of my current situation, I have two backpacks, but it's cumbersome. I'd like to find a nice bag that can consolidate the stuff I have.

Putting this on my topics list.

I'm in the market for an internal frame pack for my son and myself. He is a scout and we're going to need good packs. I don't see why they couldn't also double as BOB bags. I need direction on size for comfortable carry and cost.

I'd look into maxpedition bags. It's some seriously rugged and tough gear. I have the pygmy falcon and love it. It is a little small, but it forces me to pack light and do away with things that aren't as important as others.

I ordered two from amazon. Cuscus 75+10 liter for my wife and an 88 liter for myself. We will use them for our 3 week Alaska trip then bob. Both shipped for under 100.00 total. Look of decent quality. A bunch of reviews on them. Very satisfied to this point.

Mine is similar to this one: http://www.lapolicegear.com/511-rush-12-backpack.html

Attached to the main bag is a small med kit: http://www.lapolicegear.com/mafrpo.html

I have a separate defense bag (range bag).

A bug-out bag or get-home bag is not really something I'd think would carry ammo or firearms, but to each their own.

Be sure to test whatever you end up putting together some weekend in the middle of nowhere. If you're like me, you will remove a lot and add a few things you didn't think of.

Thank you for the heads up. Where I live now, I live out in the sticks...like way out. If I bugged out, It'd be with a good rifle and pistol, and deep into the woods (this is of course should I have to abandon home). That's why I have the need for ammo storage. I walk 200 yards into my backyard, and I'm in the middle of nowhere.

Im using the same one as these guys...
Its big, and I like the fact that I can attach my rifle to the side of the pack.. Despite the old design, the pack does balance and distribute the weight very well, even with the rifle attached..

I have an old USMC combat pack from the mid 90's. I like it bc its big enough i can get the essentials in it and yet i can still detach the the frame from it and use the frame. I have added some stuff like little pockets and nylon elastic bands for say a rifle. It also has a place where i can hook my quiver on it and hang my bow on the ther side from the quiver. All total wo a gun/bow on it it weighs bout 45 pounds. Its the one i usually use when hunting out west. I paid i think $30 for it at surplus city.

God didnt make all men equal colonel Sam Colt did
