In todays podcast, I will be going over what I decided to put in my new 5.11 AMP72 bug-out bag. I’ve done a couple of videos in the past (videos below) about my plans, and I finally have my bug-out bag version 1 set and ready to test. 

I’ll also be going over what makes a good survival knife, and why the most expensive doesn’t always mean the best.

My New Bug Out Bag: What Stays, and What Goes?

I recently purchased a 5.11 AMP72 pack to replace my old bug out bag and decided that while I was deciding what I was going to keep and what needed to go, I figured why not do a live video. While this is not everything that will be in my bag, it includes the main components and is a work in progress.

5.11 AMP 72 Bug Out Bag, EDC Backpack Breakdown & Review

Before loading this AMP 72 (All Missions Pack) from 5.11 with all the bug-out bag gear, I wanted to overview the features and why I chose this bag. This is just the initial review of the AMP72 from 5.11, and in the future, I will do a more in-depth review of how I like it and how it’s holding up.

The AMP 72 is highly modular and can be combined and compatible with gear sets from 5.11, and the hex grid design makes them compatible with any Molly pouches you might have.


Survival and being prepared should not only be a passion, it should be a lifestyle. The definition of a prepper is "An individual or group that prepares or makes preparations in advance of, or prior to, any change in normal circumstances, without substantial resources from outside sources" Like the Government, police etc. I don't believe that the end of the world will be the "end of the world" I believe it will be the end of the world as we know it now.
