Nice! I got one of those a few months ago. Haven't yet had a chance to test it.

Started on a "real" GHB, rather than something built from leftovers. Gonna have to buy in phases, so phase one is a lightweight 10x10 silnylon tarp, a bug net, some aluminum tri beam stakes, and a hunk of paracord. Everything's kinda off-brand, but with numerous (hundreds) of reviews and a wide enough array of scores I think (hope) they're legit. :?

And here's hoping that--once I get it all--it fits in my ILBE assault pack. I'd really like to not have to find and order a new pack just this moment. I mean, yea, we all like having moar packs...but I have other stuff I'd like to spend the money on.

I dunno if these count as bug out gear, but I bought my first pair of Propper boots. Selected the waterproof Model 100 in Coyote. First fit seems accurate, so that's always good. I've found that my size varies sometimes as much as an entire size up depending on the brand and design, so I'm glad I hit it right the first time.
