Incognito Survival Bag suggestions?

10 posts in this topic

For the few people who still visit - I got a new job that will require my travelling all over New England (sadly, even into Massachusetts).  I have been provided a nice Subaru Outback as a company car. However, since I am using a company car, and will often carry potential customers to jobsites and will need to carry samples, having a full-sized bug-out-bag like I have in my personal daily driver just won't fly. Therefore, I'll need to set up a minimalist kit to keep with me.

I don't want to attract attention or have people break into my car to get this bag; any suggestions on a good durable bag (doesn't have to be a backpack) that won't raise eyebrows? Wanted to ask youse guys on here first before I shopped around. Opinions? Thanks!

well it might insult everyone here but get a kids backback with spiderman or something on it that looks like it isn't holding anything but kids stuff....although they may be the cheap kind they wont go after it like a military style bag...

Put your every day carry bag in a garbage bag, a contractors garbage bag are much stronger.

a lockable brief case for your private stock check the laws but for legal papers they need a search warrant and keep legal papers in it..

the rest of it can be in a basic backpack because a lot of people hike.

a good dry sack looks innocuous and protects the contents from rain or moisture if you need to set it down. I also like dry boxes to organize my stuff like medical supplies electronic cables and drives and defend against liquid items leakage as that is more destructive than any other natural force. My DEET is in a marked flask as is my vodka that I use for cleaning wounds why use poisonous methanol.  a large plastic flask for sugar and one for coffee keep batteries in pelican mini boxes acid leaks are the worst I only have Duracell disposable or Panasonic Enloop rechargeable. cheap batteries leak and do not hold their charge in the heat or cold / outdoor storage at all.

A bug out bag BOB or get home bag GHB needs to be right at the margin of your weight carrying capabilities. the contents needs to protect you feed water and give first aid warmth and shade / protection against the weather.and if possible communications and ability to charge devices that allow you to have information access to or send and receive communications. and all this depends on the distance from your work to your home or to a secure location from your residence.

Fact is IMHO it is not one size fits all a person with medical conditions has to balance medications proper diet for their malady and proper wear for comfort and any prosthetic devices like a cane walker or other a wheel chair even if you do not need one can carry your stuff allow you to rest off the ground and can transport a child or disabled or injured soul. The chances that you may have passengers and all need to get home some extras like blankets and requiring everyone has shoes of some sort before getting in the vehicle is protecting you from having to haul them around  even flip flops are better than bare feet. Adults are guilty of stupid as much as children just because you have a vehicle with a heater does not mean you should dress at a minimum because you have a parking space next to the front door of your work because you have a water fountain or their are shops along the way that you shouldn't carry bottled water.

Many areas of the country have flash floods rock slides blizzards and traffic accidents that block roads for hours are that we happen to be first responder if a incident occurs. I have a lariat and tarp if I have to I can make a flexible stretcher and pull a person out of a ditch or gully I have a blanket fire extinguisher  water and first aid supplies if I come on a car fire or accident.

I do not prep for the end of the world I am prepared for life as I have seen it play out over my years of experience I have lived on the water in the tall grass and been in so many typhoons hurricanes flash floods fires  blizzards ice storms and sand storms along with industrial accidents I know what I need to be ready to face if I survive the first minutes., I have had to walk in or walk out of places people wound not go People fly in to or boat in to hunting and fishing camps and never consider that they may have to hoof it out or rough it if the cabin is destroyed or burns down and I have seen boats sink and leave people stranded and worse leave valuable convertible survival stuff behind like fishing waders or have nothing on the boat like blankets or a tarp or more than their basic anchor or tie off lines and sometimes not the basic boating safety equipment.

On one hunting trip one of the hunters had a box with only 5 shells 3 shots are the international distress signal and he wore just enough to survive till dark and carried no water or light a  bran muffin had more brains than he did.  women I do not like top disparage but they have a tendency to only look at the bright side a ski trip and my date only brought towel and her purse and not one of those urban donkey sacks but a clutch purse and a floppy hat and flip flops well at least she had more than some I have seen :P Lesson, don't think others are prepared think and cover your needs as for your outing and your personal comfort and  survival. when water is a part of the scenario zip lock bag everything or a dry sack.

I carry a  extra T-shirt, micro pore material (rain suit) in the winter a rubber slicker suit because its a wind break and hold in heat a beach towel, blanket hat proper shoes I keep a jogging suit for a couple of reasons in winter as insulated underwear in summer I can hit the creek for a cool off or a bath and have something to wear so I don't have to get my other clothes wet or have something to wear after I clean up  if they are dog dirty.

Most resale shops carry all you'll ever need for emergency clothing at dirt cheap prices I have an insulated snow suit jacket w/ hood and overalls insulated high top rubber boots and thinsulate  gloves and a blaclava  bought in summer If I lived in snow country I would carry skis and poles when I lived on a lake I had a canoe and paddle under the car port  even though I had a jet boat and a little 20 horse outboard bass boat because I lived on the wrong side of the lake I had plenty of privacy but all the gas and stores were on the opposite side and to drive around was 4 times  the distance and after a storm fallen trees and debris can block roads.

I love my comfort I want heat when it's cold dry clothes when I wet and shade in the hot sun and something cool to drink I prepare for that and will lay back and enjoy my comfort while others shiver and bake and don't give a rats azz stupid people need to suffer it ought to hurt when you F--K up it should be a PTSD moment not to be forgotten.

    • LMAO, Shepard Smith was on with a guy from a group that supposedly defends reports and guess what again the phrase< "American reporter that worked for the New York post" DUH he was not an American citizen. So what are we to do fire 55.000 worker dump the stock market by 1/3rd to appease the press the same press that did not defend the rights of Alex Jones HELL at least Bill Maher gets it and admonished a group he was in front of stating he did not agree with Alex Jones but he had the right to speak his mind,  but not a peep out of Shepard smith who thinks he's a journalist he couldn't write jingles for toilet paper. they put up some amazing number like 1400 that have been killed since 1992 but out of that only 24 were targeted the rest were collateral damage during fire fights. 24 for the whole world since 1992 wholly sh*t it's an epidemic IT's Russian collusion look there's a naked woman in someones bed. When you piss someone off your likely to get killed. Hell let's nominate Koshogi for sainthood OOPS sorry he is not a Catholic he's a MUSLIM. we need to stop muslim on muslm killing LMAO or it might catch on...lets hop so. I wnat to know where are the investigations on Hillery's dead pool how about the 10,00 plus dead for invading 5 countries in 5 years ALA George Bush then more stupidity from Obama What about over 1 million Christians murdered by Islamist since 2001 not a friggin' peep women taken in war for sex slave damn little rhetoric on that what about Lois Lerner from the IRS stifling freedom of association and political freedom? against Republican groups / tea party  only.
    • Californian are running like rats off a sinking ship don't let them win election in your tow county or state, why because they have not learned a damn thing they screwed up everything possible in Commiefornia and now that it is untenable they run away.  Three quarters of all the major cities are democrats in commiefornia and a bunch have had to file for bankruptcy they promised the city workers police fire and prison / jailers that they would have a forever pension with all healthcare and increases LMAO well it is time to pay and the b@stards are going to the bathroom to avoid paying the check. Commiefornians are coming soon to a town near you remember who they are and treat them like your lazy lying brother in-law. It's not that they are bad people it's that they are stupid just like New York city dwellers the rest of the state of New York is OK but they are trapped by the city no matter how they vote or what they do locally the city is the state and makes all the laws and rules for the state everyone else is like a person that closed the door on the taxi with their coat hung in it they are along for the ride and the ending is not going to be fun. I live near enough to Houston to see what democratic leaders smell like, snake oil and money illicit money there are enough gangs and dope there to float a tanker off a sand bar, and some how it gets laundered and ends up as political contributions.  the police department pension keeps going broke and they steal it from the fire department to make up the shortfall. Tehy can't keep criminals in jail because there are too many so they let them out to prey on more working citizens but I digress this rant is about Californians. The word sh*t bird means a person that where ever they light they crap all over and leave that is the definition of any of the escapees from the major democratic cities, as in San Francisco Las Angeles, Seattle, Portland Oregon, Detroit Chicago, New York, Boston, look at what they are allowing murders minimal sentencing on drug felons handing out needles condoms and credit cards to homeless criminals (they have ongoing police records) a tax on everything and fees tolls user fees  and more controls on private property and corruption in your face. Here is a few little videos on how illegal immigration hurts American citizens keeps pay scale down and kills local jobs for local children.         GREAT VIDEO ABOUT A LIVING WAGE          
    • I want to double down on my statement that ALL how many is that, ALL governments have a hit list for years any one of political or scientific stature has been in the cross hairs of their own country or another. recently HUNDREDS of genetic scientists have been killed all over the world China and North Korea have killed people Kim had his brother killed Russia has killed more than a few with Radio active elements this is just the tip of the iceberg nation states murder people all the time how about the Princes Dianna witnesses ?  Want to talk about a death toll Bill and Hilary's count could stretch across D.C. Any youtube search even if only partially correct  makes your sphincter catch second gear. At east all of Trumps detractors are still alive. While Bill was Governor there is a recording of his brother saying Bill has a nose like a vacuum  cleaner speaking about cocaine. so White Water all the sexploits and the stories of  Clinton foundation are all political lies well you can't sweep over a hundred dead under the carpet without leaving some lumps. Presstitutes (journalists that get paid to write poison pen notes) have built a wall around the Clinton's but I see that wall starting to crack all the lies spouted by the left seem to be reality but not on Trump but on the Clinton's they colluded with Russia they corrupted the upper echelon of all the alphabet agencies into Uranium One and a host of other nefarious deals. It's hard to rob a bank as big as the U.S. government unless you have some lookouts and insiders IMHO. I don't think much of either of the BUSH family as thy touted the same line as Obama the jobs are gone and they are not coming back our economy was not as good as it could have been but then again if your working for the banks and the E.U. and not the Americans that voted you in well you see what I mean. Bush Sr. made a speech and in it, " A New World Order" that should have sent shudders up and down the voter pool but because America is like 27th on the educational level of all countries you can see where that went over their heads. Everyone knows if your not smart street or otherwise your going to get taken and the American taxpayer has been fleeced screwed and lied to for so long they expect it and look forward to it NOW that Trump is in office they are begining to wake up and see all the lies from the last 4 administrations jobs can come back law and order can be restored we can have jobs and better trade deals and taxes do not have to go up every year now he is pressing to make all departments cut 5% given time he will pay for the military and the wall if we can give him a majority in the house and senate I think healthcare will be the next domino to topple.   WHAT HAVE WE GOT TO LOOSE WE KNOW WE HAVE BEEN LIED TO FOR 40 YEARS GET OFF YOUR AZZ AND KNEES AND GO OUT AND VOTE.
    •   The 800 pound gorilla in the room is 55,000 jobs compared to one dumbazz journalist who had picked a side in this fight like all the Trump haters in our news services. Make no mistake there is nothing better than allowing thie incident to cut the throat of American jobs / manufacturing and drive down all the increased jobs that make the Obama administration look like the fools they were a quote from Obama was, "those jobs are never coming back" he was a fool then and made it worse by stating Trump would never be president.  It is not Just 55,000 jobs it is the stock market will also take a hit another reason for the left to to take a victory lap and jeer that Trump policies were pie in the sky Socialists will do anything to destroy this country "out of Chaos, order" they are doing their best to back socialists candidates who's policies will put us in the poor house, they want open boarders and then make Americans pay for their healthcare housing and food stamps and if they make another baby more more more goes out to minimum wage workers or flatbackers (whores)  I have seen this in bars that I have run, a short fall in their budget they go out and find a open wallet that needs some companionship, it's called prostitution. As far as this journalists now on fox news Harris Falkner is calling him an American based journalists to make it sound like he is an American citizen, He IS BOT. I had a lot of respect for Harris Falkner but she has shot that in the AZZ as far as I am concerned her and Don Lemon should start dating, but I don't think he's into women. Since the toppling of Rupert Murdock and his replacement I have seen a definite shift of some of the Fox news host to the left but there have been those that hated Trump from the beginning Daina Perino was a never Trumper along with Shepard Smith who wears more eyeliner than any woman I know. Bill Hemmer is a piece of work he just want to magnify himself he would shoot himself to get attention (attention deficit disorder ). Jon Scott his family couldn't spell so he was traumatized by their ignorance so he decided to get a degree and forgot to change his name to JOHN he is about as exciting as bumper rust. Brian Kilmead another Attention deficit disorder  champion, then there is  Eric Bolling  a never Trumper he is a democrat in a morons clothing I think he successful at fooling us he's not, just left of pocket book style Yankee liberal who probably voted for New York Mayor  Bill de Blasio.  I see where the Democrats want to take down Trump and they are willing to tank America to do it because any fool knows when the stock market falls it goes right back up so it would make them look like saviors if they manipulate the president into making this Koshogi journalist thing into a pull the Saudi Military arms deal out from under 55,000 American workers  The democrats don't give a hoot in hell about Americans especially if they have a job, they want sniveling crawling beggars at their feet begging for the crumbs Trump gave them back while they hold the whip and send our jobs overseas and make a fat check for doing it.  
    • I pay 2.45 here of course we don't have free health care
