    I ordered a Maxpedetion Monsoon the other day. I could use it for alot of things and I just thought it looked really handy.

    I'm thinking about a few things to keep in it.

    1. Pistol
    2. Extra mags
    3. Light
    4. Knife
    5. Med kit
    6. ?????

    What's in yours pr what else do I need to throw in there?

    Looks like there's plenty of room for more. :cool:

    First - Really great choice of backpack. Top notch pack there. Jack and I both chose the same one from separate background experiences.

    I carry a lot of items in mine, to be honest. I carry a lot of what is listed and I also carry:

    • Zune - It's a portable hard drive. Hello. :)
    • Spare socks
    • Spare 'wears ( if you need to know why, you obviously have bigger balls than a lot of folks :rolleyes: )
    • Epi-Pen, in my small medi pack ( Look it up )
    • Carbs ( some snacks that provide long term tummy happiness )
    • Cell Phone Charger ( AC - Wall Charger )
    • A Random Ball Cap ( one of many I picked up at SHOT or other places without a "team" endorsement )
    How do you like that small of the back zipper/pouch??

    I also have a couple of emergency blankets (the aluminumn foil kind) and a small poncho with 100 feet of nylon cord. Could make a shelter in an emergency. I actually carry my stuff in an oversized camel back. It's not a full sized back pack. But it is great for hiking in the woods. I also have a couple of power bars, first aid kit, snake bite kit, magnezium fire starter, knife. I always throw a box ammo for whatever I am carrying at the time in there too.

    I work with kids. I took a bunch of kids on a hike during a camping trip. They all brought small water bottles. I ended up refilling their bottles from my pack. I never ran out of water.

    Nunchakus suck. Who is the idiot that first thought of swinging that around?

    Bible goes everywhere anyway.


    Thanks for nothing, dork. :rolleyes:

    Actually after looking at your picture again, it probably about the same size as your pack. I forgot to mention, I also have a small emergency hand fishing kit in mine.

    I know why you carry an Epi-Pen JD. Great idea.

    It hasn't arrived yet, but I'm anxious. :)

    They were invented long before gun powder. But they seem kind of pointless to me now.

    I still have my issued camel back, it has been pretty handy, but I consider this a substantial upgrade.

    Great ideas there too!

    Goju, if you don't love it, PM me. I will buy it from you at cost. I love mine and do think it's a GREAT addition to the quiet arsenal.

    I look forward to your report of it when you get it. Please post a review for the good of the forum.

    In the hands of the trained professional they can be very effective.:cool:

    You'd lose.

    Give me a bo over a set of nunchaku anyday for stick type weapons.

    I used to play with nunchaku quite a bit, but was never trained how to use them. I have trained mostly with the bo and escrima, but some with the sai and tonfa too.

    When nunchaku hit something they recoil because they are attached with a chain or rope, that's stupid.

    Anyway, no nunchaku in there. How about a taser/stun gun or pepper spray?

    I do have a kubaton I carry sometimes.

    OK, No Nunchakus, maybe a few Shuriken.:D

    I am deeply hurt by the Dork comment. That cut deep.

    Got the gearslinger on manday and stuffed it right away. I carried it monday and tuesday everywhere I went. It's very comfortable and holds way more than I thought.

    The zipper pouch is where I kept my cz75b and extra mags stored. It looked difficult at first but I managed to be able to unzip it and get the pistol out pretty quick after only a few tweaks.

    Looks like I'll be keeping this and I feel Oh so tacticool!! :D
