Plenty of threads and articles here to read and discuss, but this one is for beginners. Today we started discussing pantry prep. Willie (my husband) grabbed my hand and led me over to our pitiful pantry. (We live in an apartment, so stockpiling space is premium.) He opened the pantry and said "Quick! You have 30 seconds. Grab the best stuff you can carry!" He started counting. If I told you what I grabbed and what I missed, I would ruin it for you. Try this with your spouse, or go do it without thinking first. You'll be surprised. Be sure and check the pantry for the items you should have gotten instead. Bug out items or surplus not already in your bag should be in one section of the pantry, in container if possible, so you can carry it out easily if you can make a fast exit. That's what I learned, and I got a good laugh as well. Regards, Janet and Willie.
Hello everyone, A while ago I decided to pick up the SealLine Pro Pack from Survivalforge. However, once I started to really pack this thing I found it to be really lackluster in terms of support and mobility. My bag must weigh at least 35-40lbs, I have everything in field mechanic bags which match the dimensions of the back perfectly, but its just not "right". The bag has no frame and the weight is awkwardly distributed. I have broad shoulders and when I put the bag on the straps just dig into them. I'm not sure if this has to do with the weight of my bag or my physique, but I wanted to get a new more traditional bag. Since the mechanic bags holding all my gear are the same dimensions as the bag, I was hoping to find a bag that has a main compartment with around these dimensions: Width 12.5 in / 32 cm Length 18.5 in / 47 cm Heres a link to the SealLine Pro: https://www.forgesurvivalsupply.com/my-cart/bug-out-bags/sealline-pro-pack/28-286.html?redirected=1 Anyway, I've been looking for something more traditional and around <200 bucks. If anyone has a good review for a bag like that I'd love to know, also if anyone's interested in a trade or wants to buy a SealLine maybe we can work something out.
