Re: Christmas 2016

the_alias, A friend of mine let me compare his older model to my new pack, and there are some minor changes on the exterior of the bag. Mainly the pals webbing on the front; the side pockets do not have buckles and the pals webbing on the sides, also nolonger has the pass throw slot behind it. Inter...

Christmas 2016

Christmas this year was good for me. I received two new packs from Mystery Ranch. I have had the Overload MSOB for eight months or so, and have put 100+ miles under it so far. I hadn’t posted it yet for I wanted to truly get familiar with it, before just posting it online. So this year I received a ...

Re: "Ditching" your BOB or any other bag and why.

I have worked to hard to get what I have for myself and family to just abandon it. In all likely hood, most of the scenarios will be come upon by accident/surprise; in which case if an animal or human aggressor is what is encountered your fight or flight reflex will kick in. The adrenaline will be p...

Re: BOB update: Winter is coming.

I only have the military version mukluks, which are moderately heavy, but get the job done. I look forward to more of your innovations, and updates to this wo...

Re: VWMBO - Now with more beard!

Maeklos,

I have to say I am impressed with your WMBO. I also would like to say that your fluidity with expressing yourself is very refreshing. What edged knife did you use for this trip; the design looks like something I would want to purchase.

Great job, and Thank you for posting.

Re: GET HOME, CAMP, BUGOUT SYSTEM. 3 Bags that work togethe

Argonaut, My suggestion for a three bag system, would be to use a sling bag (not full backpack sling, more like a Maxpedition) for EDC/GHB. One that I have, and have used is the S.O. Tech Mission Go Bag; I believe that if you coupled something of similar dimensions and versatility with a system such...

Re: Heavy duty space blankets, yay or nay?

An idea I came up with recently for my BOB reminded me of this thread, so I thought I would post it here. If a 3 sided shelter can be made from a small tarp, perhaps a lean-to with some pine bows on the sides, it is a very good shelter for trapping heat from a fire set in front of the opening. I tr...

LyraJean,

Would waxing cheese be better than freezing, and have a longer shelf life? I don't know that is why I am asking.

Thank you.

Re: Get Home Bag

I'd like to get expensive things I guess to try them out in my BOB, but it doesn't work for two reasons. First of which is I can't really afford them right now and the Second reason is that I pack always with the premise of just dumping all my gear. Just never going back to either the hotel or area...

I also have a level 7 jacket, and though it has worked well for me it has recently been demoted to the status of "work jacket". Although, I'd still rather be wearing it standing around a campfire than some of the other gear replacing it (don't want to catch sparks on the others). When packing it, I...

Interesting-looking bag and kit you've got there. Nicely laid out and organized, but there were some things included that left me scratching my head a bit. You've got a bunch of different size/type needles and a razor blade, for what reason? I didn't see anything suggesting emergency sewing, so I"m...
