My N.U.T.S. is really full. Difficult to lug around, if you know what I mean.

Update:

So I had purchased the ALICE pack and did the mini review. After using it, one of the annoying things was that the pack is top loading only. Which meant, I had to remove everything to get to stuff in the bottom. I worked around this by storing things in ziplock bags so it would be more compartmentalized.
You can read my review to see what I thought about the bag, and for $12.00, I still stand that it's a good bag.

HOWEVER.....

For my birthday, my girlfriend bought me this.

http://www.opsgear.com/index/page/product/product_id/4054/product_name/Condor+MOLLE+Venture+Pack

I havent had a chance to pack it or use it, but it's really nice. Lots of storage, very comfortable, lots of MOLLE, and it has a waist strap.

It seems very durable, and the straps are sewn well.

Initial impression is very nice, and plus, she had custom made nametags for me, which velcro onto the bag.

I just picked up a nice bag from walmart a couple of weeks ago. Good and sturdy, and all around a great bag for $40. They are back in the sporting goods section. I will post a picture when I make it home after work for anyone still looking for a good inexpensive pack.

I prefer the M.O.L.L.E. bags, lots of styles and sizes the choose from. Very versatile: Velcro, carabiners, 550 paracord, molle bags, you can attach almost anything to them. I've bought 6 of them this year ( building BOBs for the family ) I got the FOX brand from the surplus store and the add-on packs from FOX, Condor, and 5.11.
Our bags definitely look tactical but, when the time comes that we will be using them, the tactical weapons will be the first give away.

I got one at the Knob Creek Range, went down there for the bi annual machine gun shoot. I saw this bag for 30 bucks at a vendor's table and initially passed it up to shop around but came back and purchased it. Been wanting to put together a bug out bag for awhile but didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for something that will spend most of the time in the closet. I'll also use it to carry some gear while hunting.

Where you from? I'm only about 20 mins from Knob Creek myself.

I have a couple bags I use. The first is actually a large laptop backpack. Has a lot of easily accessible pockets, a few molle straps, and a heavily padded rear compartment(meant for the laptop) that is perfect for carrying a couple handguns & extra mags.

The other is a mil issued ALICE. Haven't packed it, but have most of the stuff set aside for it.

I use my Swiss Army/Werner bag, it's beef beat up but still holds good. Got it for $60-6 years ago

I'm in Indiana, just across the river from meade county. I live in Harrison county. I'm only about 20 min from knob creek as well. Where do u live?

This is the first b.o.b. I've bought and I've only just started getting the gear together. I've got only a couple items so far, stuff we already had on hand at the house. Got a couple bic lighters, a 2aa mag lite with spare batteries and a couple other small things so far. I attached my Ontario survival knife to the outside of the bag, when the bag is on my back it'll be just off my right side hanging securely just above my belt in the inverted position.
