    Exclamation Survival vest 101

    Hi All,
    I have a survival vest article posted on www.alpharubicon.com in the preparedness info section called SURVIVAL VEST 101. I developed this vest and load-out for Search and rescue, hunting, bugging out and now it seems escaping hords of the undead. (Dang Zombies!)
    Enjoy! and please provide feedback. It is how we can make our field craft better.

    hi, festus!

    i am familiar with the article. i have it in my favs folder under emergency preps. this is excellent, as it is similar to my own. i use a SAS vest i bought several years ago. i have a small first aid kit, food, tube tent, survival manual, bullets, water purification tabs, etc. i need to update it though just a little bit.

    This is some good info,Festus.Thanks for sharing it.I read the article and looked at the pics.It appears to be the 'basic' tactical vest,am I right?
    Centerfire Systems has tactical vests for about $40 and I am seriously considering getting one each for me and my sun.
    Give everybody guns.
    Natural selection will cull out the idiots.

    I think a vest is a good idea. I have a couple, one from Woolrich and a Sas vest like Boris. I also have a "battle bag" from Blackhawk loaded up. We need to have things ready just in case needed. When something happens is not the time to start looking and thinking what we need.

    you bet..

    right on, HK!!!

  8. I use a vest in the pic

    I have a universal vest with magazines for all of my pistols, handcuffs, knives, flashlights, smoke, etc. If you have an encounter you dont want to run through the house grabbing all of your stuff from closets, drawers, etc. Get one of these vests and have it ready. If you get into a serious situation you will have everything at your fingertips. May be a little cooky but it is certainly practical for a bad situation. Think about it!!

    Survival vest 101 RE:

    I am glad the vest works for some of you. Other good choices are photographers vests, high quality fishing vests or some of the military surplus survival vests. It is important to be able to use the stuff that is in the vest, and it is also important that any battery gadgets use a common battery as much as possible. That way batteries can be cannibolized from item to item depending on needs. Be prepared to be comm-out and dark in the event EMP or power grid failure. I can have the vest, ammo and be out the door in less than 30 seconds (I don't run). I have one for each member of the family customized for the needs of each shooter and a heavy medic load out for my wife. I like the piece of mind that comes from being prepared.
