Re: Bug out bag

That bag looks totally gay. Have a look at The Urban Prepper's videos on the tier system of bags. It's what I've done. Depending on the time you have to get out and the method of transport it offers options. Now I am assuming that you are meaning happy and colourful when you say "gay".If you are us...

Re: Baby Bag

A "baby bag" is a bag to carry stuff! It is part of the mothercare et al marketing ploy to make expectant parents think they have to have one to display how much they love their offspring, a Tesco carrier bag will serve exactly the same purpose, If you have a good bag (and the 5.11s are excellent) t...

Re: Credit card knifes, Airport security beware!

As said early. those credit card things are illegal to carry without good reason (although I do carry one purely for the bottle opener feature - not a good enough excuse if found I suspect), and I vaguely recall a British Army officer working in London getting into a spot of bother when one was foun...

Re: Arcteryx?

If you are talking arcteryx as a civilian producer of quality outdoor kit then they are pretty good, but not necessarily any better than Rab, 5.11 or even Berghaus. If you are talking more specifically about the ILBE (the USMC FILBE) kit then they are awesome, the durability of the ILBE main pack I ...

Re: Bug Out vest?

The one problem with this type of vest webbing is you wouldn't be able to carry a large Bergan or Rucksack. Like you would with this: http://www.zipzapzooom.com/KOMBAT/PLCEWEBBINGSETMULTICAM/AA3.jpg I'm surprised none of the maufacturers don't make either type in Non-Camouflage Colours. Especially ...

Re: Bug Out vest?

Re: Great little BOB/GO bag I bought my wife

Looks like a great bargain, however just be careful with the quality issue on these Chinese bags, very hit and miss, a key indicator is the ability fully cinch the buckles without them snapping and the general robustness of the zippers/zip pulls, hopefully you've got a decent one and it will last yo...

Re: Fallkniven F1 - UK carry?

I don't agree, you can carry anything you want. As long as you have a decent reason, and can prove it. It would be madness if you let everyone carry everything they wanted. We (reasonably sane) people realise a a knife or an axe is a tool, to used and carried correctly and safely as it has the pote...
