PACK IT IN!
Great gear-carrying options for your next adventure
Your two hands can’t carry everything you need to keep handy. Luckily, there are innumerable load-bearing choices to help you out. From sling packs to waist pouches and duffle bags to traditional backpacks, there’s a style of gear-carrying vessel suitable for every type of adventure that includes cross-country trekking to a short, intra-city commute. As with nearly every other aspect of survival, the choice of gear should mirror your own individual needs, as well as sport a style that reflects your individual personality. If you’re not comfortable with your pack—which might be needed to either save your life or secure your valuables—it shouldn’t be part of your supply cache. Do your research and choose the right bag for the right job. Only then can you head into whatever adventure lies ahead, prepared and looking for action!
