Re: What to drop out of an INCH bag?

I dropped a few pounds of pack weight last year by going tarp/bivy. Some of the most comfortable nights I have had so far but I have not had a bad insect "situation" yet other than swarms of daddy-longs last September. Main thing for me was being able to see outside of my shelter. BTW, most REI ten...

Re: What to drop out of an INCH bag?

"No. In fact if done right a tarp/bivy shelter works great. If you’re going to drop the Gortex bivy and one of the bags why bother getting a MSS in the first place unless you already own it. Maybe look for a more UL synthetic commercial bag and don't forget about a closed cell pad. I like the green ...

Re: What to drop out of an INCH bag?

My last SERE refresh training in Spokane was in ’09, and that really made me rethink what I was packing with me. I decided not to carry all those bulky heavy items like tents and sleeping bags. I only carry things that will help, that I won't be able to reproduce quickly along the way. Main pack: 2...

Re: What to drop out of an INCH bag?

I can imagine sleeping in an open faced bivy with a tarp over you being a miserable experience. No. In fact if done right a tarp/bivy shelter works great.

It works like a champ.
LOL! That's the one I just posted above you. They look great. So you've built one? How about a review?

Rules for a Gunfight

I have this framed on the wall of my office. It's been around for a long time. One of the companies I own is a gun parts company. Number 9 is why I sell AK parts. So it's fitting that it's there. I've always loved these quotes. But I especially like number 21. "Be Polite. Be professional. But have a...

Re: What to drop out of an INCH bag?

This isn't my first plan. My first plan is to drive in our SUV of course. If that's possible. Armed to the teeth. My second (or possibly third) plan is to borrow motorcycles (say if the roads are crowded). We have friends who have offered. And I know where the closest dealer is. But that's going to ...

What to drop out of an INCH bag?

My heaviest items (besides ammo & firearms) in my planned INCH bag are my sleeping supplies. I'm taking the west coast 1200 miles to my BOL from Socal to WA state (I know. A long trek. I'm former military. I think I'll make it. Just hoping my family does.). It could be winter. It could be summer. Bu...

Re: Non-alcohol stove design?

These are better IMHO. It's one can inside of another. Which creates a jet. He's made them in different sizes too. So you can pic how large or small you want to go with them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8a6ZFisGDM&feature=channel_video_title" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; And if ...

Re: Bandannas *updated 09/30/09

The shemagh can not be cut up without unraveling though right? My only point against it. For wearing as a scarf it's non-plused. I agree with above. You want one that is big. Does anyone know where you could get the traditional style dark green military issue bandage/sling bandana - but bigger? Or a...

Great looking set up! Keep us updated. I use those batteries at home with an ac charger. They are great.

Cheap Vacuum Sealer & Cheap Bags

I wanted to buy a Foodsaver for a long time. For sealing up food, sealing important documents, one time food storage (broken down MRE's), long term storage of matches or clothes (the list is endless) in your BOB or INCH bag. Not to mention home storage of everything under the sun. But the price of t...

MOLLE II pack frame. What Generation?

How do you tell if a MOLLE II backpack has the proper frame in it? I know I've read that the first versions were not built well. And could break. Maybe there was a MOLLE "I""?

Los Angeles, Kalifornia

Ex-Marine, own a gun parts company, and an investigation firm. Build my own AK47's. Planning to move this summer back to WA. In the mean time planning a long range bug out to there. More like INCH with that long of a route. If I can't "find" a boat. ;) I'll be walking with my family. Thank you for h...
