Just the right amount of pockets, not so many you can't remember where things are, but enough to keep organized.
We really like that it's sturdy and big, but it doesn't shout military or bug out bag. If we take the patch off it could pass for a school bag if someone doesn't look too closely.
Straps are comfortable and adjustable.
Still working on putting everything together slowly over time, so far we're really happy with this bag. As we build up our supplies we will most likely purchase another one of these.
This bag is awesome. We have been slowly building up our bag over time and tonight I went through everything and reorganized. We're just at the stage where we'll need another bag so I'm ordering another one of these this week. This bag holds a TON of stuff, zippers are strong and fabric is tough.
I'm 5.3 and female, medium build. With all the stuff in it if I fasten the waist strap this bag is heavy but not terrible. We are planning our bug out bags for more emergencies like tornadoes or hurricanes, so not necessarily planning on hiking into the woods. We have included a couple basic shelter items, but focused on other things. We are still building it up, this is about 6 months of slowly buying and gathering items.
We are very happy with this bag! Buying another one now.
