Bushcraft with a Purpose by James Montana 27
Bushcraft · Outdoor Adventuring


Often when we as the outdoor community refer to bushcrafting we refer to it as a standalone pursuit. But for many cultures, people, professions and hobbies from antiquity to the present bushcraft skills were and are used as a tool for one to gain a means to an end.

Bug Out Bags · Emergency Preparedness · Gear / Gear Reviews · Outdoor Adventuring · Survival


Well my interest in this pack began over two years ago when I saw one at my MCSS. It made me curious as to why it was so expensive and what was so special about it's design.

5.11 Rush 24 Review by Robert Hisle 24
Bug Out Bags · Gear / Gear Reviews


Ok, there a ton of reviews about the RUSH 24, but I was thinking today about a review that was done two years ago on E2E by Chase Sanders. Some people like myself felt the review missed the mark, because it focused on his philosophy and gear vs how the RUSH 24 actually works. So I thought I would give you a review of it based on someone's near everyday use of the bag. ...
