I saw these on some web site for $29.99 and it looked like a good little back pack. Maybe a good car pack? I would think that you could put a fire starting kit, a water purification kit, a first aid kit, a change of undergarments, some essential toiletries, and a small cooking kit with some rice and beans in there. If you could also cram a tarp in there with some para cord you would have a pretty solid, pretty tiny BOB that would fit extremely well in the car.
I had one of these. Save your money and get something else. Not very comfortable to wear and the day I got it, the stitching on the outside pockets was coming apart.
For about the same amount of money, I use an LL Bean Original Continental Rucksack for my Get Home Bag. My bag weighs right at 27 lbs. and this pack with that amount of weight is very comfortable to wear. Also, decently made for the price.
I have one,thought I'd use it to go fishing in the adirondacks. I could'nt get hardly anything in it. I now just lend it out to Boy Scouts to use to get use to packing a pack. Day packs with out the frame are much better.
I was just looking for something small to keep in my car for emergencies, and that is the pack I was looking at (but the sight I saw it on had it listed for $29.99 which seemed like a good deal).
I know that they're small, that was what I was looking for, for the car. Besides the size of the pack, for those of you who own one, how is the quality?
Read the posts above yours. Their experience dovetails with mine. I sold mine at a garage sale. I think I sold it to the neighbor kids to goof off with. They paid $5.00 for it, and I had a guilty conscience. I robbed them.
I certainly didn't replace it with another one.
The original ones that are well-made are as rare as hen's teeth. There are far better daypacks for that same amount of money.
And since it's a toss-in-the-car-bag, why not get something more civilian-looking? There are nicer-looking ones everywhere, with better pocket size and arrangement.
