Picked up 4 – C4A1 Israeli gasmasks with hydration tubes and sealed filters to add to my survival and preparedness gear and also picked up a 42×20 gear bag to keep in the back of my SUV for the seperate emergency items I keep in the vehicle at all times. ¬†It’s amazing the stuff you can find when you’re in the mood to add to your supplies ūüôā

Well I thought this day would never come but I’m finally making the switch. ¬†I’m replacing my medium woodland camo Alice/Malice pack that I spent time customizing to get it just right with a Condor 3 day assault pack in O.D. Green. ¬†As I get older comfort becomes more and more important and no matter how you might try and convince yourself otherwise; an Alice Pack is nowhere near as comfy as today’s modern, well padded packs.

I’m going to start changing my methods for this bug out bag. ¬†My Alice Pack was a 100% dedicated bug out bag; the new Condor one will be set up to cover a hybrid of uses. ¬†The new bag will be set up on a 50/50 ratio meaning 50% of the space will be used for bug out essentials and the other 50% of the space will be used for when I need to take a bag with me on vacation. ¬†I’ll call it a multipurpose bug out bag/get home bag/travel bag or just an All Purpose Bag for short. ¬†As soon as Amazon delivers it I’ll set it up and let you know how it functions. ¬†

Here’s the specs on the bag: ¬†

  • – Large load cargo capacity compartment with separate pocket to fit up to two 3L hydration bladders. – Olive Drab contour shoulder straps with D-Ring for equipment attachment, sternum strap and waist belt. – External side compression straps.
  • – Heavy-Duty carry and drag handle. – Two double zipper pulls on the main compartment for easy access. – Individual foam pad back panel for extra comfort and maximum airflow. – Grommets on all compartments for drainage.¬†
  • Total of seven compartments: – Main Compartment with gear straps to secure gears and two extra mesh pockets. – Second Compartment contains three map/document pockets, two radio pockets, and penholders.
  • – Two large pockets on the back, bottom pocket (12.5″ x 6″ x 3″) with three elastic closure mesh pockets and a zipper mesh pocket. – Two side pockets (9″ x 5″ x 2.5″) one on each side. – One Compartment for hydration systems.

I also ordered a seperate Condor rip stop EMT pouch, a Condor Gear Pouch and a Condor 2.5L Hydration Bladder. ¬†I’m looking forward to setting everything up. ¬†Come on Amazon; hurry up ūüôā

Yes I know it’s not July yet; but I wanted to post this question of the month early. ¬†And aren’t you lucky as it’s a multi part question. ¬† This question stems from my never ending search for the perfect range bag.¬†What range bag are you currently using, do you recommend it, and what gear do you keep inside? ¬†Looking forward to your responses. ¬† Below is a picture of my current range bag. ¬†

Whenever I take my handguns and shotguns to the range for practice; my range bag comes along as an essential piece of shooting gear.¬† Its purpose; to keep all my gear safely stored and together in one convenient, organized¬†gear bag.¬† I’ve used a lot of range bags over the years but the one I find works best for my needs is the 511 Tactical Patrol Ready Bag.¬† It has convenient storage pockets for almost anything you need to bring with you and is sized properly to store whatever you need to ensure a proper and enjoyable¬†range session.

Here’s what I keep in the various internal and external pockets. ¬†Two water bottles, 9mm ammo in a molle pouch, 45ACP ammo in a separate molle pouch, pistol rugs, holsters, spare magazines, ear protection, gun cleaning equipment, first aid kit, targets, tape, 00 buck shotgun shells in molle pouches, shooting gloves, flashlight, spare batteries, fixed blade knife, bandanna, ball cap and a few other miscellaneous odds and ends. ¬†
