From time to time I end up buying things because of marketing. This time it was the marketing hype about Helikon-Tex Bail Out Bag. The BOB, bail out bag, boogaloo bag, call it as you want. This kind of bag you keep loaded up for SHTF scenario. But in real life, most of customers are buying these pack for every day carry. It's been more than four months since purchase, so I can share some feedback with you. Main Features (shamelessly copied from Helikon-Tex website): Car seat back attachable Four internal mesh pockets (two zippered, two cord-adjustable) MOLLE/PALS panel for additional pouches attachment Hydration system pocket Sleeping mat-convertible Two external YKK®-zippered pockets Internal, zippered mesh pocket on the flap Four external "grab'n'go" handles Profiled, ergonomic straps Comfortable carrying system Two external water bottle/ windshirt pockets Low profile external design wewnętrzny panel velcro kompatybilny z Versatile Insert System; Additional beavertail transformable into an improvised bag WooJin ® buckles YKK ® zippers Designed with ON THE OUTSIDE B.O.B. is made from Cordura 500D ny- lon fabric and 210D nylon. According to the specs, the capacity is 25 liters, which is usually explained as 12 hours or half-day packs. By definition, it sho- uld fit all the necessary gear to survive 12 hours. Depending how much food and water you are going to carry, with B.O.B. you can extend that time up to 24 hours IMHO. On every side of the pack, there are four drag handles for better handling. They are comfortable and will make your life easier. They are slightly too narrow for use in gloves (except the top handle), but I understand the re- ason. Most probably, too wide handles would easily catch branches or bushes B.O.B BAIL OUT BAG T e x t & p h o t o b y : T o m a s z W . S t ę p i e ń user story
