Thanks.

I will consider the long pockets. Glad to hear the pack can take big loads.

I just got an E&E and Large POD for my EMR on order. The E&E for small day/camp pack. Not going to use it as a back up pack for dumping the main Ruck. The Pod is large storage system for unexpected finds or fast pack up. The Large POD only comes in at 10 oz. The E&E adds 1.5 lbs. But if I added a XT...

Gunny,

Yea I looked over the Marauder but I am not big into panel loaders. I have an um21 patrol pack and wanted something different. Ordered the EMR to replace the UM21 main ruck that replaced my Molle that replaced my large Alice.

Ivan. Hammock is great in heavy winds. Just need to make a storm pitch for the fly. The hammock it self can't blow over as it is already airborn. :) However a few times I did get some extra lift from the wind This may be the company you are talking about. http://www.jacksrbetter.com/ However Tom's 4...

Yea. Just thinking about a ZULU or Express to replace my Alice BOB. EMR is for my full bug out ruck. Adding the ZULU to the EMR would push up the LBs. I could use the POD for say trips to the flooded out Walmart :)

What no PODs

Jeriah, Ever think about a POD? They have them in MC. I ordered a large POD just incase I need to pack away some bulky items that are found along the way. You got me thinking about that ZULU. I wonder if the Zulu is worth the extra Weight for an EMR day pack. Will make one hell of a BOB but maybe so...

Hammock

Yea the hammock is the best. For winter get that 4 season system and add to your jacket under the open cell mat. The extra Sil bottom cuts the wind out too. http://images5.theimagehosting.com/4d08.jpg http://images5.theimagehosting.com/54a3.jpg Better than sleeping in the snow. By far. If you don't ...

Bug out Shelters. 56k Warning

Bug out Shelters . So you have bugged out. Now what? You had to bail on the homestead; maybe it was on fire, under water ala New Orleans style or overrun by zombies and walking scarecrows. Don’t know but the decision not to go to the “convention center” is a good one. So now you’re in the middle of...

Cold Steel Tomahawk.

Nothing says I care more than a good hawk. Here is a pic of my welcome mat. http://images5.theimagehosting.com/gun.20.jpg After the FAL and H&K run dry the Cold steel trail Hawk would come in to play. Bears, zombie and walking scarecrows are all fair game. Heck it might be enough the chase off Jason...

Fire starter block

Mag fire starter blocks are not so good. The best part is the sparker for the old cotton ball and Vaseline trick. Have a back up for the lighter that can be dumped under water and still work. For temps below 20 the lighter tends not to work very well for me. It can be warmed in your hands however ad...

Nice

Not a bad start. I would dump the military type flash light. Try a LED flashlight and a LED head lamp. Consider a surefire if you are looking to spotlight a funny bump in the night.

Sounds about right.

"You do realize I look 1000% cooler with a cigarette in my mouth when I am holding my shotgun, and I can't light a cigarette with a spark thrower." Everything is cooler with a shotgun. But darn lighters have screwed the pooch on me more times than I can count. However I still carry 3 of them. Tell y...

Here is what I use

This is my first post so I hope it ends up in the right forum. First for fire starting a lighter will screw you the hardest when you need it the most. Don't count on them for anything other than fair sunny days. I find this ironic as that is when you need fire the least. The magnesium fire starter i...
