Thread: Urban Survival Pack

  1. #1

    Default Urban Survival Pack

    I'm about to buy a 3V Gear sling bag because I've heard good things about it and I can afford it. Anyone have any better ideas? Mostly need a compact sling bag with molle and has to be black. I don't need Rikers or whatnot spotting me a mile down a Detroit road when TEOTWAWKI hits.

    Yes, I looked up both Rikers and "whatnot" and there is no definition of either term on Google, so I am having difficulty discussing a bag suitable for their use.

    BTW, black is not the best urban camo color. No solid color is good camo, even at night. You might as well wear blaze orange because you will stick out like a "ninja boy scout" on duty at the mall.

    You want camo in an urban situation then wear urban clothes. You want to transport gear, do it in an urban fashion, not some off balance, survival yuppie sling bag.

    Next point, why are you in a place where you need all this concern. Detroit is not Stalingrad and the entire city is not leveled to rubble. There are some bad areas but some of Detroit's suburbs are among the best places to live in the nation. During most riots the destruction stops at a well defined border, usually at a point where the rioters know they are not safe if they intrude past that point. TPTB simply do not care if they burn down their own neighborhoods but if they cross the line into "tax payer territory" they will be dealt with.

    If you are in a temporary urban uproar the logical thing is not to go where the action is but to move into the calm and protected areas. That might be a block away or across the bridge, but it likely will not include a hike to Toledo.

    When seeking protection being dressed all in black and carrying something that appears to be a satchel charge, like an international terrorist, might not be a wise move.

    Also I might add that if you are moving in a manner that you can be spotted a mile away you are doing it wrong. You need some serious work on your escape and evasion skills and not a new pack.
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    A lot depends upon the nature of the riot. In many of them property not people is the target. You might find yourself caught up in a race riot or similar situation though where you could be at risk.
    This time of year the Halloween stores are opening, you can find lots of wigs, fake beards and other costume items that are lightweight and will fit inside your pack. Throw something on, elude your pursuers and change into something else around the corner. The idea is to blend with the local culture not stand out.
