High Quality (with Cheap Price) Tactical Bug Out Pack is Tough! – Roaring Fire Assault Pack

Does it seem like companies either want
to sell you cheap junk? Or they want to charge you an arm and a leg for something that’s actually dependable? Well today you’re going to learn about a solid backpack, a solid bug-out bag that is the best of both worlds. For less than $40 you will get a good backpack bug-out bag that is
dependable and will get you through your bug-out. First the disclaimer: I am NOT
getting paid to make this video. And I also won’t be making any money or
kickback for any of these that do sell. The company Roaring Fire did send me
this backpack and did ask me to do a review of it; and I will have links
to this backpack down below if you want to purchase it for yourself or as a gift
for somebody else. Now first, I don’t do many gear reviews for companies; and one of my rules is that if I do a gear review, I don’t just take it in my back
yard and play around with it for five minutes and then do the review video.
When I do review a piece of gear, I do make sure I have had actual usage with it,
and I actually put it through some tests. And I want to make sure that if I say:
“Hey this is a pretty good item” that the item is actually worth the money and
will actually hold up for the person. And so far this backpack is holding up
good. I’ve had it through numerous excursions with me as I’ve gone through
this this land I recently purchased. I’ve had it go through
sticker bushes through heavy brush and so far it is holding up good. And one
thing I’m a little bit disappointed in: is that I actually had blood on here
that actually washed off. I was kind of disappointed – the blood washed off
because, hey, what better way could you show the ruggedness and
durability of something by showing something that’s got some some wear and tear and some blood on it? Anyways, for this tactical backpack I think it’s worth every penny. Considering that some of the higher brand backpacks and bug out bags can run closer to $200, I would much rather spend the money on this and then spend that extra money (that you save from buying one of the more expensive bags) and spend that saved money on extra food. First, this is made out of some pretty tough material. The company says it’s made out of 900D waterproof Oxford cloth, but I don’t think the word “cloth” really describes
this very well. To me, it seems more of a canvas material, but I’m no expert on
that. This material, it’s just durable. Now when I first got this thing:
the first thing I started doing was started yanking on it to see if it would
rip or tear or anything. And so far it’s just holding up; it’s just it’s just
being tough. And I also really like it that it has these compression straps, because once you put your items into your backpack you can really cinch
this up, you can really tighten this up so that your backpack’s not
flopping around on you or bouncing around on you while you’re rucking it
through the woods or through rough terrain. And I also like the molle
webbing that it has on the on the front of it and then also on the back sides of it. Because this allows you to hook extra
gear and extra stuff like that onto the pack also. Now as you can see this thing
has double zippers; and this first compartment actually opens up all the
way like a complete clamshell. And you have a lot of space in here. Now I don’t
have this backpack set up for bugging-out right now; I am doing a lot of work on my
property, so I’m having some extra clothes and some tools and stuff like
that in this backpack instead. But again a lot of space here, a lot of room. Again, this first compartment completely unzips and opens up like a clamshell. Now the second compartment does not unzip all the way
like the first compartment does, but it unzips about down to about 70 to 80 percent of the way. And again: a lot of space and inside here, you’ve got these
administrative pouches (and also on the back compartment) but more
administrative pouches where you can compartmentalize things that you’re
wanting to to pack into your bag. And this pack also has a rubber coating on the inside can act as waterproofing to keep your stuff dry.
Now on the very front you have this top smaller pouch which is good for holding
smaller things like your flashlight your firestarter other items like that; and
again it’s got this rubberized inside to help keep your things dry. And
then you’ve got this lower and larger pouch, again for holding things
and again, it’s got this rubberized lining again to help keep your things
dry. And you have more of these administrative pouches in here for any
papers or documents or identification… anything like that that you want to hold. And then
in the very back, you’ve got a pouch that’s actually held together by Velcro.
So anything you want to keep flat (maybe laminated maps or anything like that) you
can keep back here. Plus, this has mesh cushion that allows
breathability and also gives you just a lot of comfort while you’re wearing this. Now
you also notice that everything is stitched together very well; a lot of
double stitching, and a lot of box-type stitching. And again: all around on the
inside of this pack you’ve got that rubberized coating, again to help keep
your things dry. Now anything that has zippers is not going to be completely
waterproof; water will get through the zippers. But again, I’ve had this out and
I’ve had some pretty good downpours on me while I’ve been out here on this
this rough land (that I purchased as a bug-out location) and it’s kept my
stuff dry. Now folks, I am no bug out bag backpack expert, so if I am missing
anything in this video on this bag then please put it down in the comment
section below. The main thing for me is you are getting one rugged
backpack that’s gonna hold up for you, that’s good and tough. Folks when
I first started prepping, I wish that I had found something like this, because I
think the backpack that I bought (that was pretty much identical to this one) I think I spent close to $80 on it. And this backpack this is less than
40 bucks. Now the Roaring Fire company actually
has this backpack listed on their Amazon page as the: “Roaring Fire Tactical
Backpack Army Assault Pack Molle Backpack for the Three Day Pack Bug Out 45L” again on their Amazon page; and again I’ll put a link below to
this to this backpack down in the video description box. And in fact, I will also
put a second link down in the description box for their whole Amazon
store, so you can check out everything that they carry in case you’re not
interested in just this one backpack. And a good thing to pair with this backpack
would be a awesome little $20 prepper stove, a little off-grid stove
that uses twigs and dried leaves to cook your food with. This little stove is
perfect for preppers, and fits nicely into the pack. So to learn more about
that awesome little off-grid stove, then click on the video that should be
appearing on the top of the screen (just about now) to learn more about that. And if SHTFwere to happen tomorrow, and if the water quit running out of your faucet, would you’ve be secure enough that you would be able to actually filter dirty water
to make it safe to drink for you and your family? So to see a simple method
that I use, where I took green & dirty lake water, and I turn it into crystal-clear
water that was safe to drink, plus I drink it on video to prove it: then click on the video that should be appearing on the right side of the screen just about
now. Anyways folks if you made it this far: Hey, Thank You very much for watching, and I pray that you have a good night. And God Bless you folks that use this Closed Captioning. I do it for you. 🙂

  1. Link to the Roaring Fire Tactical Backpack:

    Ethical Preparedness T-shirts & other items (makes a great gift for yourself or someone else):

  2. Nice canvas. Wished you kept the face mask/bandanna on as if gave you that tactical edge appearance. And what’s the deal with cops doing raids with balaclavas on? Thanks for the videos and effort to educate the community.

  3. Dude! You can stop with the fake stache and all! We've all seen your commercial a couple hundred times now. We know you're not purty so there's no more need to pretend.

  4. There is also a neat looking single shoulder bag that looks as good as the backpack. For both, they are just under $53. I will probably get both. Thanks for the review. You are my go to guy😊.

  5. Thanks for reviewing this pack. Amazing value at a great price point. I really like the cinch-up features; keeps things tidy so as not to obscure peripheral vision; and, minimize sounding like a wild boar crashing through woods. Thanks EP. Praise Christ for showing you the way to obtain your land🕇

  6. The shaved head looks good on you. Good choice and you have a generic look so I wouldn't think anybody would recognize you in public.

  7. You are so right my friend a lot of people get this deception the more you pay the best quality it is that is not true… because not everything that's expensive is good…

  8. Tipp:
    Fill it up with water, ammo or the inserts for a lead vest and march/speedmarch with it for a while.
    It does wonders and you might get surprised.

    Bug out bags in general:
    Context matters and everyone probably has some kind of a plan.
    My pack (actually a 30-35 liter backpack under the flap of a 110 liter backpack) is set up for all year around and can feed me for 30 days when i find water. That being said i train with it and can march with it about 50 km< in 10 hours (which i may or may not be able to march in a crisis because of reasons so prepare for error).
    Have a understanding how far and in what timeframe you`d have to go and which obstacles you likely have to take. Don`t underestimate shelter/a sleeping options and protection from the elements (e.g. cold).
    I have made the experience that it`s easier when a pack has the option to split or switch the weight distribution from the shoulders to the hip. Your experience and situation may differ. Everything has it`s pros and cons. With a good plan you might not need a pack at all or might get away with a very small&light one.

    That being said it looks like a solid pack although it looks a little tactical. I might put it in a duffle bag together with solid boots (with inserts), socks pants (maybe in general a change of clothes), since all this things can be problemfactors when marching (including but not limmited to the enviroment, You can rubb your skin open on all places where there things rub together). I have marched where my feet have been open to the flesh and my upper legs bloody and yes one can do it BUT it`s better to figure such things out before a crisis. Took me weeks (probably longer than a month) until my feet were back to normal.

    The cheapest way to keep things in a pack dry is to put them in one or multible trashbags. epending on the things (e.g. sleepingbag, change of clothes, electronics) one or better two waterproof drybags can be a good choice but there can be user error.
    When you know the propper way you can cross rivers or lakes by swimming with your backpack and the things inside stay dry. You can even use your pack as a light floating device.

  9. It can be really sticky to find a solid bag. If you spend a mint on a bag, then sure, you may get a good one. That being said, even a good pack can be damaged by use like an inconvenient palo verde or mesquite tree.

    Finding a solid bag for $40 is a real find. I do have a couple of questions for you however that didn't seem to be covered in the video:
    1-It it ready for a camelback? By that I mean does it have spots on the shoulder straps to keep the feeder hose down and does it have a secure pouch intended to support and hold the water bladder.
    2-I saw some molle, but you didn't mention as to whether or not you attempted to secure gear like mag pouches or med kits to them. I was just curious.
    3-Did it have a water vent in the bottom of the pack or not?
    4-Did it come with a belt strap to secure the base of the pack against your lumbar region? For that matter, does it bother your back to hump a bunch of weight in the pack?
    5-Can you estimate about how much weight the pack's straps and stitching can support approximately?

  10. What are the colors this pack is available in? What is the weight limit of the pack/compartments? Does this company have MOLLE accessory pouches available? Would the company sell the pack/pouches at a slight discount as a:

    "Outdoor Trekker Kit"?
    "Emergency Preparedness Kit"?
    "Urban Nomad Kit"?
    "Patriot Loadout Kit"?

  11. Great Video. So what happens in a SHTF and your two years out with no chance of getting another tactical back pack. Lets be honest no matter how hard you test it, the real test is in the SHTF scenario, which cant be duplicated. So my question, can it hold up.

  12. respect for declaring what your relationship is with the company. on the value vs cost scale looks like Value wins out.

  13. WHAAAAT! This is the first video I've seen with your face. When did you start that? Welcome to the ranks of youtube preppers who are face-targetable bro! I was going to do a similar video about a low cost bag that I was testing out. I checked out this video to be sure we weren't doing the same pack – which we aren't. So that's good. More options for people.

  14. 900D and 45 liters. This backpack is a bit heavy, at a hair under 3 pounds empty. But its weight would be a minor inconvenience in a real, no-nonsense get-outa-Dodge situation. It so happens I'm looking for a good backpack. I want tough and thorn proof instead of a lightweight pack designed only for open country use. And this backpack appears tough and very well made. The asking price on Amazon Prime is a mere $34-bucks. A steal if there ever was one!
