Looking for feeback on SEVENTY2

About to send money for 4 of these. Was wondering if anyone had any knowledge/info on this, if it was worth the money. Wanted a complete set of gear for each family member to throw in the RV.

To be honest you could probably build your own 72 hour pack with better quality products, for much less than that. Your paying for the convenience of them putting it together for you. Just my .02

dbuck1031, don't overthink a survival bag.

From your posts, I know you are handy in the trail and hunting, & I think your family is also handy in the outdoors.

I don't want to deny that company it's dues and the bios of the company seem pretty impressive, but I think you and your family could make twice as many bags for that amount of money, just by talking about the situations and making an appropriate bag.

I have one for ours. We talked and made bags that were tailored to the likes, dislikes, and capabilities. They know what is in them, are familiar with them, and complement each other's bag.

Try it and see how it goes. We had a fun time with ours. It became a "team-building" event for us as well.

The info in the "Go Bags" sticky thread is gold.

Read through the "Go Bag" sticky, great information. I think I'll go the route of individual bags that play to each individuals strengths, while maintaining certain items throughout. Thanks for the input, greatly appreciated.
