I've been looking for a "bug out bag" I guess, I don't really think there will be some kind of happening but I think it would be fun to make one and do innawoods type stuff with it. Problem is I don't know what backpack to get, there's so many different manufacturers. Drago has seemed pretty good so far. What does /out/ reccomend? What are notable qualities to look for in a good survival bag?
Why not check out one of the three backpack threads we already have, anon?
I got the daylight backpack from Tom bihn for my get home bag. I know it's not as tactical as other bags, but I hear the aeronaut is a great bag. Durable as fuck too, especially if you get the dyneema bag if you're willing to put up with the fucking stripes.
Hey /out/, I bought a backpack and it had this thing in it, does anyone know if it has any function?
it has velcro on it and can be put together like this
and there is some kind of cussioning in it
I got myself the Tasmanian Tiger Bug-Out-Pack.(pic related)
Volume of 40 liters, MOLLE-webbing on the sides, front, bottom, and inside the main compartment. Inside the different compartments there are additional pouches, fixings, d-rings, and so on for better organisation.
The main compartment opens up the whole way to the bottom and holds fixings for a hydration-system.
I recommend a maximum weight of around 10 kg (so roughly 8 kg payload). with this weight it is a very comfortable carry and you would barely notice the bag.
On the downside, even while it looks very cubic, the inside of the main compartment is not due to the carry-system. The backplate is slightly bend so you have to keep that in mind when packing.
Tasmanian Tiger is the military division of the German company Tatonka and well known for the quality and durability of their products among the German armed forces even though they are manufactured in Vietnam.

You will also find a wide range of (militarystyle) bag(-pack)s, MOLLE pouches, and additional equipment.
I've got a WiSport 55L Reindeer Hunt BOB, comfy as all hell, they aren't a very well known brand in the UK but they are a Polish company and if you search hard enough they have some awesome reviews, only bought the hunt edition as it has a drop down pocket so you can carry an air rifle on the pack
Most but out bags are a joke, they often lack a sleep system or the space for one.
If you live somewhere where it's always hot it's ok, but when I gets cold you will need a large sleeping bag and a thickish sleeping mat.
Maybe considering something like this...its about 45l volume
wrist belt and weapon case are detachable
When I was shopping for a bag I picked kuiu's pack system. The frame supports the load so you can carry more than just the bag. the bag comes off so you can get a smaller and a larger bag for however long you're going to be out.
