00:01:00
very next episode now the actual premise for this episode comes from one of the channels I'm subscribed to called crazy
00:01:06
Russian hacker where he actually did an unboxing for a $1,000 survival kit it going through that the couple items were
00:01:14
pretty decent but even for that amount of money I was like holy crap the stuffs pretty junky
00:01:24
so I know I would expect a little bit more $4,000 so and then it caused me to start doing an inventory on my
00:01:33
particular to bug out bag and I realized that my bug-out bag my personal one just for one person was way more expensive
00:01:40
and then I realized I was like oh my gosh let me see these big huge ticket items of $1,000 survival kit or $15
00:01:46
syllabic you had a 400 or survival kit and you think you're getting epic gear and when you really dive deep into it
00:01:51
you realize good so based off that concept we want to take the $50.00 bug out bag then we're gonna form it to your
00:01:57
levels we're gonna take a $500 bug out bag and then further what I would call the higher end for an individual bug out
00:02:03
bag we're gonna showcase my personal $5,000 bug out bag now keep in mind that those things will include like hunting
00:02:10
implements self-defense tools perimeter security you're really diving really deep once you get to that higher higher
00:02:16
higher level well that wasting any more time but to actually pick up this kit this is the
00:02:20
ust be ready kid this is on for three people for three days for 50 freakin dollars you gotta go to Walmart and
00:02:26
typically when you go into the camping hunting or outdoor section if you were in the United States you can find these
00:02:32
packs anywhere between 45 to 50 dollars this particular version is the ust be ready back it is touting that for three
00:02:40
days for three people they're gonna give you the bare-bones essentials to basically
00:02:45
keep you alive these are for like natural disasters something like hurricane Harvey or hurricane Herman
00:02:51
down in Puerto Rico this is exactly what this kids for this is not was something that I would go try to trek in the woods
00:02:56
with for this reason alone is fire-starting give your waterproof matches you're really not getting
00:03:04
anything super special here but all in all this pack is not horrible for what you kind of don't pay you've got a bunch
00:03:12
of freaking water packets right here you've got the hydration it's basically enough water to get and keep you guys
00:03:18
going assuming you're staying more than likely indoors you've got a shelter if you catch yourself out of your normal
00:03:25
home or apartment you got to evacuate you've got kind of emergency tent it's kind of those two tents with emergency
00:03:30
blankets kind of gives you some instructions even for beginners you should be able to figure that out then
00:03:35
we've got the lighting portion basically has some form of a battery looks like a wind-up battery in some chem-lights
00:03:42
then we have a first aid very very very basic we just have in heesu bandage strips butterfly advantages conforming
00:03:48
stretch gauze examination gloves hand sanitizer some basic instruction safety pins some medical tape things like that
00:03:56
and a trauma kit like if you were to get stabbed a shot or something more dangerous happens you get attacked by a
00:04:01
wild animal or something you're kind of screwed additionally we have some survival tools we have some cordage we
00:04:08
have some towels we have a waterproof match case the littlest thing to these like a dollar ninety-nine and then you
00:04:14
also get a multi-tool blade I've gonna be kind of nervous about that considering the whole package cost 50
00:04:19
bucks and most decent multi-tool start at about 50 bucks then you got nutrition now like I said for some people out
00:04:26
there who don't have a lot of money I'm not picking on them for picking this particular kit you have basic shelter
00:04:32
hydration and food and I would keep the first aid you know keep everything but what I would do is like put a good knife
00:04:38
in here then I would say put a decent flashlight with some extra batteries in here then I would go through and put a
00:04:45
better multi-tool in here and possibly a folding saw you kind of take this start with and expound upon it now we move on
00:04:51
to the $500 bug out bag now you see this is the max in Tiburon this was sent to us for
00:04:57
review and we've still been testing it we test it into the mountains and it did pretty good but with a six five and a
00:05:03
half to six mile day hike up to 9,000 feet we learned one very very important thing this cannot get loaded down very
00:05:10
much because it's gonna put a lot of pressure on your shoulders and whatnot so the to me personally this is kind of
00:05:17
like a bug-out bag putting it through a pretty solid test yeah this is probably not the best bug out back in the world
00:05:24
however if you're gonna use this as a daypack or you're gonna keep this about 25
00:05:28
pounds or less for kind of a compact situation you'll be better off now like you said you'll see this bag as
00:05:35
completely itself as men upgrade it's got a lot more compartments got moly attachments you can put first-aid kits
00:05:40
here you put morale patches got these nice hook and loop tabs on here this thing is really really rigged out to be
00:05:46
a really good in casual prepping bug out bag now I say that and a lot of people might get offended but you got to
00:05:53
understand is I was in the same boat too until kind of my eyes were opened by this particular group of people which
00:05:59
are through hikers and backpackers those people have some of the most rigorous most serious backpacks I've ever seen
00:06:07
and the thought occurred to me if these guys have to hike 5 6 7 12 13 15 miles a day with a backpack on should these be
00:06:17
the packs I should be looking at for an actual bug out bag if I'm going to start taking this stuff seriously and that's
00:06:22
what we've been starting to invest in but without taking any more time up we're gonna dive into this pack and show
00:06:27
you basically what 500 ollars get you now from what you can see in this particular pack everything kind of
00:06:32
piecemeal been put together actually equals about 450 bucks because of the fact that we wanted to make sure that
00:06:38
you could add food and water if you so chose so we kind of left a little spare room so it wasn't just tools but what
00:06:44
you could notice you're starting to recognize some things on the channel some of the budget-friendly stuff that
00:06:48
we highly recommend that don't cost a lot of money you kind of slow the upgrade you add a folding saw you add a
00:06:54
better knife you could put ax in there you had a nicer water filter you put an emergency sleeping bag you're better
00:06:59
cooking system you add fishing and hunting baskets you have better fire starting expound upon the first aid kit
00:07:05
so you start piecemealing and adding it before you know it give one two three years down the road you're
00:07:10
looking at something more like this so like I said five footer dollars gets you a better kit and this is something that
00:07:15
I know most of my viewers would look at that and like I have some fizzing water and put a first-aid kit in there Chris
00:07:20
and I'd be happy with that that works for me and for the casual prepper who wants to make sure they have decent
00:07:26
solid gear like I said this will do the trick but for people out there who literally
00:07:31
just decide though they do more research maybe they've had an incident in their family where it's something something's
00:07:36
been affected personally or maybe they just take this particular lifestyle extremely serious and now it's on the
00:07:41
top to your priority list that wasting any more time we're gonna jump into the $5,000 bug-out bag this is the $5,000
00:07:47
bug-out bag now the bag itself doesn't cost $5,000 is the bag and the contents that do this is actually a brand new
00:07:54
pack it's called the muskeg and from a company called the Cafaro international they are a backpacking hunter military
00:08:01
and expeditionary backpack company that pretty much sold some of the best backpacks on the planet now there's a
00:08:07
bunch of people out there who've heard of companies like Osprey mr. ranch eberlestock however this particular pack
00:08:13
caught my attention because it's a water-resistant backpack with water resistant zippers now this particular
00:08:20
system has a high laminate fabric which is the same stuff that we've seen on some other backpacks in the past
00:08:24
that's called x-pac it is a weave that actually makes it very very highly water resistant but it's also a really good
00:08:31
rip stop type nylon so you're gonna gettin superior strength but you're also getting that waterproofing capability
00:08:37
that is gonna be drastic when you're in rough elements we're gonna kind of go into why this particular pack for a
00:08:43
bug-out bag makes a little more sense first off it has these actual sleeves right here
00:08:48
that are designed for things like trekking poles and the blood of a gun arrows and other things like that now
00:08:53
that is gonna be necessary when you are carrying a big heavy load this is a 5,000 cubic inch pack or an easier
00:09:01
translation this is like an 82 liter pack this is a big boy but they have these two handles right here they have
00:09:07
one at the bottom the one at the top it is a top loader but it has a side zipper that goes with runs along the side right
00:09:13
here so you can access your gear so if you have something like the bug out roll that we have and some other things
00:09:18
you've got that covered additionally if you're gonna have a sleeping bag
00:09:21
shelter system you have this right here but what makes this pack so amazing let's say you have this pack with you or
00:09:27
you're on your way to your bug out location and you get an opportunity to hunt and the game is a little bit bigger
00:09:32
but you're within a half a day's walk this thing has a meat shelf attached to it which is in the back you do some
00:09:38
disconnecting along with the duplex frame and you can actually carry your animal on your backpack with your stuff
00:09:44
at the same time this is the actual duplex frame this is a huge freaking very very very supportive lumbar support
00:09:51
right here with the right Rhino insignia right here and it has extremely thick cushiony yokes that run up the full
00:09:58
distance of the frame additionally on here they have really nice load lifters and the compression strap for your chest
00:10:05
and the waist strap to where basically most of the weight of your pack is designed to be held is extremely big I
00:10:12
mean you see how monstrous and Huggy this thing is and it's extremely supportive now what you see right here
00:10:16
are my rock egala trail lights these are designed for if I'm walking on the trail and I don't want to put a stupid
00:10:23
headlamp on my head I can really get a huge opening even in some of the most dark areas I can light up this whole
00:10:30
freaking scene but without wasting too much time because we're gonna dive really deep in this pack in another
00:10:35
video as we actually take this on a full weekend excursion now once you see everything taken out of the pack and
00:10:41
this is what is fully in the pack my wife and I have a very very very similar rig this is the bug out roll now we're
00:10:47
gonna provide some overlay footage so you guys get a very brief overview of what's in the bug out roll to kind of
00:10:52
show you that it's full of freakin gear we have our Holtzberg axe all of our soil mini water filters are cooking kits
00:10:58
our cleaning kits or repair kits toiletries first-aid some minor things like that we've got a little bit of
00:11:03
everything in here additionally as we move on to other parts we've got the go outfitters camping solution it's nothing
00:11:10
more than my hammock the straps the apex tarp to protect me and my pillow it's very very very basic this doesn't
00:11:16
account for me having to add some extra weight on the bottom of my pack so if it's in the wintertime I can put the
00:11:22
adventurer topical it from go Outfitters as well to really brown myself out so I don't freeze to death and cold weather
00:11:26
additionally we have three or four of these freeze-dried meals that would go on the outside of the pack in that
00:11:32
little top sleeve we have my Casey's knife this is the trail knife that we got from our buddy
00:11:38
it's made from of a Cho called Z wear but this is a custom knife so as you can see this this is a 500 hour knife now
00:11:45
like I said we're not boasting we're just saying is once you start investing into high quality gear and
00:11:50
start picking up things for yourself products start getting exceedingly expensive it just kind of how it works
00:11:55
additionally uh two items that we really wanted to insert into here that we've never done before and showed you guys at
00:12:00
all where we added a full trauma kit and first aid kit and that came from mid pecs you would say you saw them at
00:12:05
prepper con 2018 if you haven't seen that series of videos definitely go check out up here you can see those
00:12:11
particular videos and another thing we added we got for my buddies over our fifth ops we got some tripwire perimeter
00:12:17
security we have five of the trip wire systems complete with all the Kevlar thread and everything you need to
00:12:22
actually set that up and we're gonna see a little small demo of that while we're talking and another rule of threes that
00:12:29
Canadian prepper atom a buddy Nate and it was a really good idea is the rule of threes if anybody doesn't know it's
00:12:35
three seconds without hope three minutes without air and he added one is thirty minutes without security three hours
00:12:42
without shelter in harsh conditions three days without water in three weeks without food and now as you can see food
00:12:49
is not a major priority and we actually made sure there is enough hunting and trapping implement in our particular kit
00:12:55
for active and passive fishing hunting trapping and things like that and also having some food tour set aside but here
00:13:02
in southern Texas in our particular environment nine to ten months out of the year the biggest things we're the
00:13:07
most worried about is our temperature is are between 85 and 120 degrees almost all year round so what we are most
00:13:14
concerned with is shelter and water we need to get safety from the elements we need to get protected away from that Sun
00:13:20
and we also need to make sure we're you have water water is vital without water in this particular harsh environment you
00:13:26
will die there's plenty of other place in the world you'll die in but southern Texas is a very harsh environment now
00:13:31
this particular rig is actually only about four thousand dollars with all the included goodies you haven't fully seen
00:13:37
in this particular backpack because we opened up the door for about a thousand dollars for people who are looking for a
00:13:44
viable active hunting and self fence implements whether you're gonna have a compound bow crossbow or recurve
00:13:52
bow like we've got you've got a rifle you have a sidearm a gun a pistol whatever you've got we added that
00:13:58
because we all know it doesn't take much the prices are really going up so when you look at it you're like oh man Chris
00:14:05
you're not as crazy as you sound no a $5,000 a bug-out bag is not as psychotic as people think because most
00:14:12
of your money will go into a really good trauma kit if you decide to get a bug a bag organizer you decided get one of the
00:14:18
higher level backpacks like an osprey ever leave stock you're gonna get a mystery ranch or a safari backpack those
00:14:26
backpacks are expensive but they're designed to last you 5 10 15 20 years even of medium to hard use they're
00:14:33
designed to last a very very long time but like I said this is stuff that you have seen in our overnight videos you've
00:14:39
seen our prep work on videos we're not throwing out a bunch of craziness at you and trying to show both but we're really
00:14:44
trying to show you that when you start taking preps extremely seriously we're not saying anybody who can't afford a
00:14:49
$5,000 setup doesn't take it seriously we understand budgets we know how that goes but what we're saying is the $5,000
00:14:56
was designed for sticker shock but it's not as crazy to sound so we showed you the differences between a beginners
00:15:01
backpack kind of an intermediate and a kind of you say expert level or veteran prepper someone who's been doing it for
00:15:07
a very long time 5 10 15 years or longer if you guys are interested in any of this stuff that we've got obviously
00:15:12
we're gonna throw links in the video description so you can learn more information help support the channel all
00:15:16
that good stuff but that's it for now and if you enjoyed our differences between the $50.00
00:15:21
bug-out bag the 500 and the $5,000 bug-out bag give this video a big thumbs up and share this out with your friends
00:15:27
and family in your social media networks so we keep growing thriving and making awesome videos for you guys but that
00:15:33
just a bit over now hope you guys have absolute wonderful day [Music]
