I challenge all of you to build completely useful, practical BOBs for less than $150, including the price of the bag itself. I had this idea to build bags for friends and give them out, and my price range will be roughly $150 per bag. I'm just curious what you guys would put in it.

Even then a used glock that is worth having is still 200 for a gun and mag alone. Let alone three full mags.

OP, perhaps include an inventory? That way we can see the cost and discuss the contents better as it is hard to tell from a picture.

Also, that that a fucking shiv under the glock?
Why the box cutter?

prettty sure op just picked a random bug out bag from the web. im checking amazon for most of my prices btw.

op, id sugest

2x lighters (3 dollars), a mora knife .(under 15 shipped) likely the best knife you can get for the price.
1x metal canteen with a cup, (~12) can make a stew in the cup while you drink the purified water. more containers the better IMO
your preferred form of water purification (iodine works(12$), boiling works(free), life straw ($20), your choice) id save money and force em to boil.
1x pair of wool socks ~15 dollars
paracord, 100 foot roll is 7.50
space blanket ~2.50
fire steel/ferro rod. under 10 dollars
85$ so far
china sells ruck sacks for ~25 dollars. its your call on if you want to trust Chinese manufacturers.
a tarp and sleeping system and flash light are what are needed. now, what you choose to spend on these items determines quality. MSS sell for around 100 bucks but you can literally sleep in a puddle in side one. larger tarps weigh more but you can do different things with them. and sont even get me started on flashlights

for food, id just fill up nalgene bottles with dehydrated beans and rice/pasta. mres are kinda expensive. id also throw in a zip lock baggie with a bunch of single service spieces you can get from most fast food places. mres contain preservatives this will at least come close to what people are used to eating. obviously this list is incomplete as id also suggest a decently calibered weapon. /nra/ is currenty discussing the mossin naggant as a hunting rifle. the gun should sell for ~150.

The shiv is a harpoon knife, can be easily made by hand like third image shows one crafted from an old spade drill bit.

Don't know about the bulky boxcutter since they make flat versions like pic related but razorblades are sharp as fuck and carrying a stack of blades could give you an edge for a very very long time.

well i basically gave you a run down of what you should def have for 150, other things to consider are a multi tool that has both a file saw and awl. a sturdy knife that is full tang. personally id opt out of most things a first add kit has and keep a few white banandas and duct tape with you. if you cant fix it with a turniquet, a splint, or bandanasyou are probably going to die.the only item id add is a speed tourniquet, the kind you can do one handed so if you manage to slice your upper arm you can still operate one (pic related) other wise rope and a stick does the trick just fine.

if you can find a compas with a signaling mirror id get one of those, make sure it at least can set a bearing so you know which way you are traveling.

core items;

  • Alice rucksack, and external frame. Even unmodified, the alice backpack and external frame is a hardy, time-tested design that is perhaps the pinnacle of utilitarian hardiness.

  • Mosin Nagant (price post last-gun price hike? unknown, but the mosin is probably still the cheapest gun out there) and 2 or 3 spam cans of 440 ammo (total of about 800 to 1300 rounds ?)

  • a good knife or 2, and multitools. I would personally recommend a good kukri, but most any other good blade will do. If you have to, a thrift store set of kitchen knives is a good idea (minus the knife block ?)

  • water filtration system. At the very least, you can get or make a drinking glasses worth of charcoal, put it in a clean single sock, stuff it in a small bottle with the bottom cut off, and then boil it in a pot from the thrift store.

  • water containment. Anything made of higher quality plastics for slightly acidic drinks (citrus drink bottles, gatorade and other sports drink bottles, 2 liter soda bottles)

  • food. Alot of things are available in the way of non-perishable food; peanut butter, spam, rice and beans, beef jerky, granola bars, ect ect. Also, iodized salt and sugar are a necessity in a mid-to-long-term survival situation. Kids vitamins are also a good idea as an accompaniment to meals.

  • fire making. Lots and lots of lighters is an option, as well as a decent magnifying glass for solar fire making. For fire tinder, lumps of dry laundry dryer lint can be collected into a zip-loc bag.

  • String and small rope. You can pick up 65 yard spools of hemp twine at most walmart places, but im inclined to say that you really can't go wrong with a decently large amounts of several diameters of string twine and small rope.

to clarify some things which due to my weird mind, might be read incorrectly.

Water filtration system. At the very least, you can get or make a drinking glasses worth of charcoal, put it in a clean single sock, stuff it in a small bottle with the bottom cut off, and then boil the char-bottle-filtered water in a pot from the thrift store.

Alice rucksack, and external frame. Even unmodified, the alice backpack and external frame is a hardy, time-tested design that is perhaps the pinnacle of utilitarian hardiness. With the addition of zip-ties, you can attach MOLLE pouches to it, or other backpacks, purses, whatever, to add more carry-space.

An alternative to guns (in the event that one cannot be gotten), are bows and arrows, or for more compactness, slingshots converted to shoot arrows, with a bow whisker / whisper biscuit.

Slingshots seem like a good alternative, But the elastic only lasts so long and getting fresh good condition elastic would grow tiresome pretty fast, Bike tires would work for a while, Even then there's no way it's strong enough to make a lethal slingshot even with the extending gun thing.

Same problem with bows, Except you can get a good stick to turn into stave in less than an hours searching the woods. Unlike vulcanized, thin and polish rubber.

you have to dry staves for a while prior to using them.

I have this bag

http://www.edisastersystems.com/store/72-hour-survival-kit-2-person-3-day-emergency-supply-kit-pr-3.html?gclid=CP2s2vm2n70CFckWMgodAicA-Q

Its pretty good deal for all the stuff that's in it, plus I'm only 1 person. I put some lighters, matches, and a knife in there.

I also got this, which I highly suggest everybody get.

http://www.amazon.com/Vestergaard-Frandsen-527950-LifeStraw-Personal-Filter/dp/B006QF3TW4/ref=sr_1_1?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1395260777&sr=1-1&keywords=survival+straw+water+filter

I honesty think that's the most important thing I have in the bag.

Anybody got anymore suggestions? I think I'm gonna put more food in there. I also wanna get an old iphone/itouch along with a solar powered charger so I can have that in a shtf scenario.

also the iphone/touch would be loaded with survival apps and information and possibly some literature for if I get bored. I wouldn't just be playing fruit ninja. I also heard you can build boxes to put electronics in that would protect against an EMP, I'd probably keep it in that since it would be invaluable.

A European military surplus backpack, pick your flavor. ~$40

A Mora, poly handle, cheapest available. $10

Roll of duct tape. $2.50 (first use to reinforce Mora by wrapping base of the blade with handle thickly)

Firesteel and flint combo. $5

An altoids tin or other container preferably watertight full of dry tinder. $1 or nothing if container is available.

Metal canteen. $5

The meanest looking tool in the crowbar/hatchet/axe section at Lowes/Home Depot/some other big chain hardware store $~40

A waterproof tarp $20? No idea what tarps go for these days actually, might be cheaper.

500ft paracord $5

Warm fire retardant blanket $20

That's slightly over $150 but could probably be gotten for less, I gave high estimates for the cost of each item. That's a good bare essentials pack though.

100 MPH $5 (Local surplus)

Electrical Tape $3 (Lowes)

Protein/Calorie Bars $10 (Online vendor)

= $150

My personal BOB has much more, plus I have various other pieces. The thing to think about is to evenly distribute the load and keep unessesary bullshit to a minimum (i.e. electronics, cellphones, ect...)

I have a minimum of four knives in my BOB, you'll end up loosing one or two...those are a key part in surviving. I also carry a Zippo, but they require fuel, so matches and flint are a necessary backup, water filtration is most important, know at least the basic skills, like filtering water, building shelter, forging, plant identification, weather forcasting, ect... it's all covered in FM 3-05.70, another tip is to carry a pocket guide, be it Ranger, SAS, ect... can't remember 100% of everything, 100% of the time.

You can have a map, compass, ect... but unless you know how to actually navigate, it's useless. Navigation isn't something you can just "do", you have to know what you're doing, or you'll end up lost. Happens all the time to hikers, military personnel, LE, ect...

Cheap shit breaks easily.
You want to know why it's cheap. Because you'll have to buy it 2 or more times.
Which is useless for a survival kit.

That 25 dorrar tomahawk.... seriously ?
The handle will fall off, the metal will deform and the sharp edge will be sharp for about one use.
I'd pay 25 dorrar for a single screwdriver. 50 or so for a hammer. For a tomahawk, I'd gladly pay 100 or more. Just so I know that fucker isn't going to fall apart in my hand the first time I use it.
For fuck sake, it probably has the dreaded chrome vanadium etching on it. the tool equivalent of "premium" or "organic" on food labels.

Save 150 more and get a half decent kit

>more buys more, teton sports explorer is nice if you don't want milsurp
Hygiene supplies <25
>soap, toothpaste, shovel, so on. You can really cheap out here, REI has a nice hiking shovel for 8 bucks. Campsuds will wash you, your clothes, and your dishes in a really small concentrated package, buy some.
Sleep system +-200
>Tent, Tarp, sleeping bag, sleeping pad. Don't cheap out here, just don't. You can make a strong lightweight tarp with tyvek
Water bladder +-30
Bic lighter <5
>a ferro rod and some punk wood is nice, but a bic lighter is more dependable than you'd think
I assume you already have clothing, so free.
>I recommend buying some decent pants and underwear though
I assume you already have some food, so free.

This will get you through most nights. You also will most likely want a first aid kit (make your own), some stuff sacks, a knife (mora), a headlamp (petzl tikkina), and a water filter (sawyer mini or squeeze). Probably something I'm forgetting. To waterproof everything put it in a ziplock and then a trash bag.

I forgot dishes, an aluminum mess kit will cost you 8 bucks. A stainless steel cup will cost you another 8 and is worth it. A small alcohol Stove made of aluminum soda cans can be had for the cost of two sodas (or like 10 bucks for a really well made one off eBay) heeter Denatured alcohol is really cheap.

I like to have a nalgene bottle wrapped in duct tape with a SS nesting cup on the bottom of it. If I ever need to boil water without a large fire I have that in my side pocket to use with the alcohol stove.

No don't know anything about any of those things other than preference. Because I don't need to. ( I do however know that the FDA has nothing to with hand tools or power tools )
But quite simply I've bought cheap tools before, Screwdrivers warp, hammers falls apart. and wrenches bend. I'd rather pay the extra 50 dorrar and get a branded forge steel, snap-on or wera set of anything, If someone is willing to put there name on the tool and provide a 10 year warranty or more, You can be rather certain it's of good quality and will probably last you the better part of your life without having to buy another set.

And the more expensive sham, Is only a sham if you're buying shit from fucking argos and bnq.

Then you fall for the sham. Ignorance isn't something to be proud of. (No, they don't, but "Organic" is a label that is FDA regulated and must meet certain regulations)

Cheap Price=|=Cheap Quality

It is possible to provide a reliable and durable tool at an affordable price. $75 doesn't guarantee anything, it's a price point. For all you know Snap-On is making their tools at $15 and selling them at a huge markup. So you could be getting fleeced and you're making excuses for it by saying that in some arbitrary way that price points guarantee quality.

To toss your argument on it's head, the tomahawk I purchased has a LIFETIME WARRANTY, as in my lifetime, not the lifetime of the tool. How do you explain that? Beats the shit out of your 10 year warranty from Snap-On. Than there is Hi-Point, their warranty is amazing. Regardless of if you're the first or tenth owner of their firearms or if it suffers a catastrophic failure or you run it over purposefully with a dump truck, they'll replace it, free of cost, no questions asked. The price point is also lower on all their firearms across the board compared to other firearms in similar calibers.

Like I said, your just upset you drop big bills for something that is equal in quality to a more affordable item. Then you try to justify the purchase by insulting others who were more diligent in their purchase and actually made an effort to decide for themselves based on the materials and craftsmanship, rather than "warranty" and "self-promotion".

Anyone can make a product, be it complete garbage or extremely high quality and still offer a stellar warranty.

That was my point. Just because something costs $300 less than it's market rivals, looks like a brick, is clunky, and ugly doesn't equate to poor quality or craftsmanship...just like dropping $1,200 doesn't equate to superior quality.

It's the most asinine shit. People making unfound claims, such as claiming a higher price point equates to superior quality, which is completely wrong, or making claims because they feel as if their understanding of the world is indisputable fact.

Let me give an example of the latter; I was in an argument with a guy once, over WD-40. He told me, WD-40 isn't meant to be used by any professionals or technicians, that it's a squeaky hinge stopgap and that's it. Do you have any idea what WD-40 was designed for? It was designed by the Rocket Chemical Corporation specifically for the Convair Division of General Dynamics to be used as a water displace on the skin of the Atlas ICBM. I can't think of much anything else that spells out "professional" or "technical" quite so well.

Well, You go ahead and buy your cheap toys, Come back in a year or so when you've bought your sixth or so set of them and try and say the same.

>or making claims because they feel as if their understanding of the world is indisputable fact.
Go back and re-read your facts and tell yourself you're not doing the same.

I still have a £250 40 piece drill bit set that hasn't even tarnished, dulled or warped in over 16 years and I use those fuckers every single day barring weekends.

You just want to justify being cheap. Because it'll take a good few months for cheap tools to become useless scrap metal, By which time you'll of forgotten about this argument entirely, and you'll be able to justify your 60th 5 dorrar spending on the same fucking tool.

And it's not unfounded, It's shear experience. I work in company where everyone has there own toolbox, The guy who buys cheap tools, Is the guy always complaining that his tools don't fucking work. The guys who bought mid range to high end tools, Never complain other than when they first got them and that was the merely the price.

So go and play with your toys, I'll work with my tools.

incoming mini review

so ive been carrying mine for about a month using it mainly as a light while i ride my bike home did some research and im finding it listed under various names all over the net for anywhere from 14-50 dollars.

its a very simple aluminum constructed 1 mode flash light that is freaking bright. the led and lense are what set this apart, the lense actually magnifies the beam down to point. when zoomed in it actually is square like the led. really surprised me when i did it the first time. it says 300lm which i really dnt have anything to compare it to to tell you if thats acurate or not. i find it to be plently bright enough to comfortably ride my bike as fast as i can go though at night. ive probably had it running close to 4 hours now and the battery hasnt died.

i actually like this light so much i bought one for my mom, and 5 more just in case. at 4 dollars a pop there perfect.

hit submit to early.

i haven't submerged it yet as id rather not risk breaking it and the lense is for sure not water tight but i have dropped it while riding my bike at full speed and it survived no problem . the clip is actually pretty solid, i bent mine to easier go on and off my pocket and it stays in palce.

only grip is the button is slightly ever so slightly higher then the rim of the light so it tilts when sat on end.

Amazon offers free shipping on items yes, but the items that have free shipping mostly always cost more then the ones that don't, if you actually compared prices on amazon you would probably notice this, Prime item costs 6$, non prime same item costs 3.50, with 3$ shipping, and ya allot of things you can get cheaper online but allot of things you can get cheaper just going into the store and getting them, especially small items.

or you can just order the cheap ones from China that take 30 days to get to you, and there is a 50/50 chance that the item will not be what was advertised.

and i do alot of shopping online i can safely say that most everything is cheaper when you arent paying for a brick and motor store. this thread is 9 months old, i dont think time is a constraint.

and as long as you pay attention chances are you dont get burned on counterfeits, and if you are spending 3 bucks with the hope of saving 30 who cares if you get burned once or twice, you still ahead.

For my camping bag, I went around to brick and mortar stores and found what I wanted, wrote down prices, then found them on Amazon for cheaper INCLUDING shipping. Yeah, it was only a few dollars cheaper, but that also meant I don't have to drive out to stores and waste gas. The only time I found brick and mortar stores cheaper was during a big sale or clearance event.

There is no reason to be childish and if you're going to throw a tantrum because someone has a varying point of view, you need to stay off the internet, or better yet just not leave your dwelling.

I will, I'll buy them as frequently or infrequently as I please. I still have no idea why you even bothered to comment in the first place.

Been rocking my tomahawk for a few years now, use it for yard work, carried it for extrication, used it camping, used it in the winter to spit kindling and small logs... she's still going like a champ.

That's good for you. I've seen similar sets for similar costs shatter and snap after a few years of infrequent use.

Hardly, I've spent serious coin on various items. I've also spent cheaply because there was no reason for me to buy a $100 hammer, the $25 hammer preforms the job just as well. Now, if I was a carpenter or electrician, I might consider the $100 hammer.

That is indeed unfounded, experience is based on a SOLE person and their life. So based on you biased and narrow view, you say the guys who buy cheap have broken tools...because you're an infallible and incapable of lying, or forgetting, or simply fabricating stories.

You really are a child.

PS:

I find it highly unlikely your any sort of experienced laborer, in any field, most likely an apprentice who thinks he knows something. Someone with experience in and industry would know what SAE, BHS, and like systems are, because they're internationally universal.

Anyway, have fun with whatever it is you supposedly do, or don't do. This will be my last retort to you, enjoy.

You would be hard pressed to find any sort of clothing, tools, books, phone accessories, car parts, or electronics, cheaper in a store than you would online.

You can go to Verizon to buy a 20 dollar case for 50, best buy to pay 1/3 more than you need to for a TV, or your uni to buy full priced books if you want but I'll stick to buying online.

Uh, you can get clothes for pretty much free, car parts you can goto a junkyard and get them pretty cheap, not sure what type of electronics you would need for a bug out bag and car parts for that matter and phone accessories would be useless, you are better off going to the salvation army or an army surplus store, and you can get books for free as well pretty much just download them and print.

But ya yo can easily buy shitty Chinese made electronics online cheaper most of the time.

That looks like it was pieced together by a douchey hipster "photographer" that considers himself an artist.

I've actually committed every bit of data contained in the DVD's to perfect memory and recite it each day.

I would take them with me just to remind me to not stray from the One True Path.

You should surgically graft the smashed shards of the dvds into your ribcage for maximum effect.
