    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:

    a large tackle box is the best thing for a medical bag. Tools sounds good

    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.
