U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Before you jump to the conclusion that this is just another backpack, read on. This piece of equipment is unlike anything that you have ever used. Natural and man-made disasters can occur without warning. From tornadoes, floods, and hurricanes to civil unrest, it is essential to be prepared, IF you want to survive. To be prepared means that you must have some very specific items stored in one place (and preferably in a single container) ready to go if the occasion arises. This backpack is such a container. It is not a “typical” outdoorsman backpack, it is a true tactical combat quality piece of equipment that will withstand the toughest environments and guaranteed to last for “the duration” and longer.
This backpack has ample space to store your “readiness gear” as well as a handgun retention system for two pistols and two dual magazine pouches.
Among the items we added to our backpack were toilet paper, two FRS/GMRS Baofeng radios, a first aid kit, 100-feet of parachute cord, and a metal water bottle. There were other essential items that we DID NOT have to add because they come standard with this backpack.
They include a 3 Function Adjustable Beam Flashlight, a 4.5′′ Fixed Blade Survival Knife, a Stainless steel Multi-Function Tool, and a Lensatic Compass. We would like to bring up an important point: These are NOT cheap items simply added in to attract buyers. They are tough pieces of equipment that will stand up to whatever comes their way. BTW, that multi-function tool is really tough…. better than most of the popular ones on the market. As with all G.P.S. Equipment, the Tactical Bugout Backpack is equipped with the patent-pending “Visual ID Storage System”. The icons are strategically placed on specific pockets to maximize the protection and storage of each item. Not only do these icons take the work out of organizing your stuff, but it also makes it easy to quickly check your backpack to ensure that all essentials are present.
