Excellent Quality! My husband and I purchased 2 of these bags and worked with the sellers to customize the bags to our needs. We had previously put our own emergency backpacks together, but on opening them a few years later found the food moldy, the knife we had purchased broken, and the emergency radio very fuzzy and confusing. So we decided to go with the Bug Out bag to get a higher quality product that we could be confident with during an emergency. Having the water filter is a HUGE plus as that makes any water available usable. The backpacks fit both my husband, my 12 year old daughter, and myself as they are easily adjustable and have plenty of space for clothes and extras. The backpacks are also very comfortable (thick padding) and include a place for an internal water bladder. We are a family that loves to camp and backpack, so the bags have a double use of something that is both practical and will greatly SIMPLIFY our packing for camping. Very worth the cost!
This is a great backpack. I'm glad I bought it, all the products inside are in good condition and easy to organize.
We received our kit late last week and spent the weekend going through it. Really well thought out and expansive. Very importantly, the build quality of the products is quite high.
I ordered two of these bags and two of the companion bags for a son, nephew and their wives in the Los Angeles area after an exhaustive search of the numerous BOB's available. The OuttaGEAR contents is of a consistent high quality unlike many others. The options are easy to exercise and substitutions handled quickly with a telephone call. The bags arrived promptly and completely. I hope they will never have to use these for other than delightful weekend camping, but I certainly sleep better knowing the kits are available should the worst happen.
I spent a considerable amount of time researching various products on the internet and visited a few stores. In my opinion, Outtagear had the most comprehensive collection of items selected for its intended uses. I even spent time trying to price out these items separately on Amazon with hopes to save additional money by creating my own bag, only to find out that I could not beat their pricing. It made me feel great about my purchase but I wasted at least a good hour.
All items arrived as detailed in original packaging and undamaged. Everything also appears to be in good quality. Fortunately, I have not had to "bug out," but plan to test gear on future backpacking trips. I do not anticipate any problems. I hope this helps other potential buyers!
I really like the quality and quantity of items. The bag is expensive, but the value for the money is totally reasonable when you consider the cost of each item and especially the time it would take to pick and buy all these items myself. This seller has some other really top notch emergency bags for individuals, but this is perfect for my family.
I like that they include quality products, like the SOL emergency bivvys (that don't rip like most other emergency blankets). The water filter they include is worth it’s weight in gold. The Snugpak bag is really nice because you can roll it, carry it with different handles or carry it with the backpack straps. There’s still plenty of room to put clothes in. Be sure to fill the water bottles before storing in your car or closet!
Arrived quickly, with everything intact. Collection has all the core essentials you would want. Bag has plenty of extra space to add more goodies. This is definitely a convenient way to start my "prepping"
This bag is great its worth the money. i really love this bug out bag ever thing you need for when the s*** hits the fan
