A Solid G.O.O.D. Pack

Voodoo Tactical 3 Day Assault Pack

This one is hard to recommend because there are so many choices out there in such a wide variety of styles and prices.  Also, it’s not like I’ve been able to go out and beat the crap out of several different ones to see what holds up.  I’m a normal guy, I don’t have the time or the budget for that.  I did do a lot of research though and ended up buying this one for myself.  It runs about $60.00 at The Army Navy Surplus website.  That seems to be the best price out there and I had a very good experience with their customer service.

The reason this bag won out for me was that it was right in the middle of the price range, got solid reviews, had all of the M.O.L.L.E. flexibility, and didn’t look to “military wannabe” or “hiker guy.”  When it arrives, you’re going to think it’s small but once you loosen everything up and start packing it you’ll quickly figure out that this thing holds a LOT and it can hold more with some M.O.L.L.E add on’s.  It seems very well constructed.  I’m sure you won’t go wrong with a Blackhawk, a Maxpedition, or a Kelty but for about half the price, I’m happy with my Voodoo

Ammo Can Spectacular Deal

Cheaper Than Dirt has the best deal I’ve ever seen on brand new, unused, metal ammo cans.  For the newly initiated, these can are water tight, air tight, and offer some EMP protection as a Faraday Box (somewhat debatable, do some research).  Great for storing a whole lot more than just ammo!  Unfortunately you have to buy them by the dozen…great group purchase or to give as gifts.  I filled up one with basic supplies and gave it to each family member as a way to start the preparedness conversation with them!
