PACK IT IN!

Great gear-car­ry­ing op­tions for your next ad­ven­ture

American Survival Guide - - CONTENTS - By Michael D’angona

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!
