Kmart has Craftsman 13-In Tool Bag for $5 (on sale)...they are black/red..look just like a doctor's black medical bag...

And I thought that would be great for my medical things for a BOB..:rolleyes:

BUT, with 6 outside pockets, they are just the right size for a change of clothes and personal items for each member of the family...:2thumb:

I bought 5-----one for:
*lighting/firestarter/radio
*medical bag
*tools and defense(cough--cough!!)
*my clothing, personals
*husband's clothing, personals

Hope this helps someone with a family...I used cable ties, hole puncher, squares of cardboard to label each instead of writing on the bag..:cool:

Other than pocket 1st. aid basics, I am putting my 1st. aid supplies in a 30 cal. ammo can. It is water tight and cost $8.50 at the surplus store.

I think a BOB should be easy to carry several miles if needed.
A backpack is easier to carry than 5 tool bags and they can carry more stuff.
I use a backpack my son was issued in the Air Force.
Lots of room and easy to carry.
The bags you bought are great and I have a couple in my truck.
One even has tools in it.:)

I don't plan on backpacking---if our 4 wheel drives don't go there, neither do we...we're 60 and 62..we're not running...the BOB is in case of a need to get out of the house/community quickly, not running from anything or anybody.

And I guarantee, noone can carry what I have in those bags...trust me!!:scratch

In your case they should work good.
The one I keep in my truck is more of a get home bag and I would need to carry it.
Like you I am not running anywhere.

A friend of mine uses a fishing tackle box and it works well. I picked up a bag from cheaperthandirt.com that so far is working out pretty good. It has carry handles and a shoulder strap and a hidden compartment for a pistol and maybe extra ammo and/or extra money. A place for two canteens, I used one for a canteen and the other place I put my alcohol and hydrogen peroxide. Plus six more outside pockets. Anyway, here's a couple pics.

LOL....sounds like you have the same luck I do, it's always cheaper after I buy it......The bag I have, I'm using just for first aid, it's made by Condor.
