About the OuttaGEAR 2.0 Bug Out Bag
The 2.0 Bug Out Bag packs the best and most utilitarian of outdoor and survivalist gear into a 3,400 cubic inch Teton Scout backpack. With enough equipment and food to support 1 person for 3+ days, OuttaGEAR's emergency compadre will serve you even better than a roll of duct tape served MacGyver when the other shoe drops and the fit hits the shan. Store one in your home, car, or at work, and if the hand basket ever arrives you'll be fully prepared to send it, empty and beaten, right back to hell.
Alternatively, you can also do something novel with your 2.0 Bug Out Bug: use it. OuttaGEAR points out that while most other emergency kits represent a Worst Case Scenario investment, their BOB's contents and construction quality were selected and designed to perform just as effectively on normal camping, backpacking, and hunting excursions as they were to sit idly by, waiting for the world to go dark. Contents of the 21-pound stockpile include:
- 1 x Teton Scout 3,400 cu/in backpack with inner frame. Designed for comfort and durability, with a fully adjustable torso to fit men, women, and even kids. Fitted with numerous pockets, a rainfly, sturdy zippers, mesh lumbar support, and padded waist and should straps.
