My pack arrived just in time for hurricane season and I absolutely love it! The pack and all of its contents are extremely high-quality and so well organized. I am really glad that I decided to order this one after looking around at several other brands. Customer service is outstanding as well!
What separates this kit from the rest is the how everything is packed/labeled . In an extreme survival situation this system will not be difficult to use.
To the people who say that they should add a cooking section, in a survival situation, which is the intended purpose not standard camping, the ready made food bars are much better than a stove, as unnecessary items add weight and bulk, a pan would do the same.
I was super excited to get my bag today. However, on first opening the box I saw that the piece on the zipper pull (the section of rope to help you if you are wearing gloves) was missing. The the plastic toggle on the elastic band that holds the H2O bottle was missing. Going through the contents of the bag I saw that some items have changed: - The flashlight is bulkier, black, and certainly brighter, but not quite an EDC size. - The knife is not the one advertised. It is close, but not serrated and that is MAJOR for cutting paracord in the field. The sheath and paracord on the handle are black. If I am using this as a survival bags for emergencies, I want to be able to find things easily in low light situations. - The hat is not the one advertised. Included was a gray beanie. - The gloves are not the color advertised. Included were a black pair. - The goggles are not the same that were advertised. Included was a black pair with a clear lens that looked like snowmobiling goggles. - The multi-tool was not the one as advertised. Included was a larger tool that would be horrible in an emergency. Bad multi-tools can be very dangerous when they are cheap. Trying to pry out the saw or screwdriver could get you in minor trouble which is what you are trying to avoid in the first place. - the printing on the black backpack faces 2 directions, you have to flip it to read the right side. *None of this is major, but I certainly expect to receive what I purchase.
this is really great set up, i did move the nalgene to the outside, and where it used to be i put a jet boil with an extra food package. fits great. i have this in my truck along with a Zeus, I am really excited about this pack. I live in a 4 season area from fires to heavy snow. i feel much more prepared for anything to come my way
