Expand Your Bug Out Gear with RIBZ Front Pack
Being that I’m always hiking and looking ways to expand my backpack capacity, I thought this was the perfect solution to an overloaded pack. I’ve been on long hikes where my shoulders and back kill me which makes it nearly unenjoyable. Hikes give me a good test run on how things would feel if I needed to bug out if the SHTF. Needless to say, there are some adjustments that need to be made. This simple addition makes a huge difference in weight distribution as well as convenience.
The RIBZ Front Pack weighs only 11 ounces and has a capacity of 600+ cubic inches of storage space. It makes the perfect backpack accessory or standalone pack. If you’re in a hurry to grab something out of your backpack, it’s always a major inconvenience to stop, take off the pack and dig for whatever it is you’re looking. The RIBZ Front Pack allows you to store those items in the front, where you can easily access those important items that you need in a moment’s notice (bear spray, gun, money, glasses, food, keys etc).
The quality of the pack is astounding. It’s made of Cordura fabric which is durable and take the punishment of frequent backpackers or hikers. The zippers are made solid to withstand long term use. The pack comes with several adjustment straps to allow you to get the perfect fit. The RIBZ Front Pack comes in different sizes according to your waist size as well as several colors. I chose the Stealth Black to match my backpack. It really does look like a seamless part of my hiking gear.
Another cool aspect of the pack is that you can wear it as a standalone. It’s perfect for parents that want to carry their kid on their backs but still have storage space for their necessities. Maybe you want to go fly fishing and not wear a backpack because it gets hot – this is a perfect solution as you can throw in your snacks, lures or whatever so your pockets aren’t weighted down.
The RIBZ Front Pack makes for a great addition to my gear and would highly recommend it for the convenience and definitely the load distribution it offers. If you’re interested, the RIBZ Front Pack is on Amazon.com for around $65 or you can buy directly from their website.
