It’s heavy winter here in Montana. We’re digging our vehicles out of the snow daily. A LOT of us are using our heads and keeping our trucks and SUVs stocked with “just in case” gear, in case we have to “bail out” and trek through the tundra.
Many of us don’t keep a fully stocked BOB (Bug Out Bag) in our trucks at all times. While it’s a good idea to do exactly that (especially in severe weather), it’s “bat crap crazy” not to have SOME KIND of support gear on hand, just in case.
Here’s a cool bag from SO Tech that doesn’t take up a lot of room.
This is their very popular “Go Bag Extended”. This is a versatile, high quality, sling bag that is “Made in the USA”. It’s extremely durable and has a lifetime guarantee.
From the SO Tech website;
Built as a survival bag for America’s elite special operations forces, the S.O.TECH Go Bag is cylindrically shaped for easy access and extraction from a downed aircraft or burning Humvee.
Made in the USA
Designed for Heliborne and Humvee Mounted Personnel
The only thing worse than getting shot out of the sky or hit by an IED is knowing that you now have to get your kit and get the hell out of the area. Our Go Bag was designed for Helicopter crews and Humvee personnel, so that in the event of a crisis, they could grab the bag on the way out of the vehicle. It fits perfectly in the spaces that exist in a Helicopter or Humvee, which are too small for a ruck, but could be a great storage site for an E & E bag. The options for this bag are endless. The Medics fit a roll-up stretcher in it, the Spec Op shooters use it for E & E kits, and when you’re not shooting and moving, it’s a great Bail-Out-Bag for your car, home or gym.
Concealed Carry Device Bag
The tubular design gives a civilian look and masks large devices. Extended version is 3″ longer and can be used as a concealed device bag. This extended version of the Go-Bag was designed as a covert carry option for the shooters who need a device close by, while still being low profile. This is the perfect system for 17.5″ devices and the upper and lower components of a similar device. This is perfect for contractor work where the principal understands the need for such devices, but the situation dictates a low profile signature. The outside has two pouches where you can store and assortment of mission related items. The inside has room for a Cordura® covered foam divider, the Go Bag Insert (SGBI), sold separately – for a broken down device, or any other kit you find necessary to your mission.
Hydration: 100 oz (3 Liters) – bladder sold separately
Material: 1000 Denier Cordura®
Weight: 2.0 lbs
Dimensions: Length x Width x Depth
22 in. x 5.5 in. x 6 in. (internal main)
9 in. x 5 in. x 3 in (2 external pockets)
627 cu. in. (internal main)
135 cu. in. (each external pocket)
The GO-Bag Extended is indeed a great Bail-Out-Bag for your car, home or gym. From the looks of it, it can also be used to carry a take down rifle. Each of the large outer pockets will carry (4) 30 round mags, easily.
Street price is $135.00, but if you google it, you can find them for about $100, with free shipping in several places.
On the SO TECH website, it’s currently on sale for $99.00 in Coyote Brown (SBG-X-CB). Multi-Cam(SGB-X-MC) or Ranger Green (SGB-X-RG) will cost you $145 and $135 respectively.
And yes, you can even get it in BLUE, but it’ll cost you almost 2 Benjamins to do it. Personally, I wouldn’t. It’s just not my thing.
If you’re a member of Jack Spirko’s MSB (Member Support Brigade) over at SurvivalPodcast.com (as of Feb 11th 2014) he can save you 10% though a deal he has running on his site for the Coyote Brown (SGB-X-CB) bag. I don’t know how long this special offer will last. If it interests you, go ask Jack.
About Jack Spirko;
We get emails and PMs asking about Jack on a regular basis. We’ve never been on his podcasts (talking about ISBU shelters or any other survival/prepper topic – although we know that we’ve been recommended to him and that people talk about it) but we’ve heard many of his podcasts and caught ourselves nodding our heads in the right direction most of the time.
Jack’s not just “some strange guy in a closet podcast booth in his basement.” He takes this stuff seriously and he’s got a big fan base and a whole tribe of paying members to help keep him moving the message forward.
Jack Spirko (along with his guests) shares good intel in his podcasts and from time to time he offers his paying members good deals on gear. I’ve met him. He’s not a bad sort, once you get past his “game face”. Like all of us, he’s intensely focused. Go into it with an open mind and be patient. We often hear that Jack is a; “Love him or Hate him” kinda guy. It’s quite possible. It should be noted that the same is often said about us. All I can say is that a wise person would want to listen to him for a while before they make any judgements. ;)
Additionally, we don’t have any association or affiliation with SO Tech or Jack at TSP (The Survival Podcast). We’re not card-carrying members of his tribe. Nor are we getting paid a referral fee or commissions by anyone.
As always, we’re just interested in showing you new gear that will fill a slot and make you safer.
Till next time.
