Why? Because A Disaster Can Strike in Seconds
What is a “Bug Out Bag?” Some call it a “Go-Bag.” Think of it as a backpack which has everything you need to survive and be comfortable away from home for a 72-hour period. Those are the most immediate and critical hours after a catastrophic event effects you and your well-being, and most environmental situations are usually over within that time period.

We’ve been thinking about tight, low-drag, bare-bones Bug Out Bags lately. One that doesn’t hold the kitchen sink but is durable enough and designed in such a way as to be multi-purposed. Something that sits tight on the body so’s to keep one mobile, something that can hold a water bladder (or two in this case, more on that later) a change of clothes, food, and some must-have tools.
And above all it has to be tough, able to be pulled, yanked, torn on in the woods and all around beat-up without a care. That of course let us to Maxpedition – well known for some of the most durable packs available. We locked-in on the Falcon-II backpack in OD Green for this build since it fits the bill, so we decided to do a full review of the pack itself.
