Building your Bug Out Bag: The Bag
I personally chose a military/tactical style bag. I chose this because of the MOLLE attachment webbing, many compartments, rugged build, and its OD green. OD green matches my natural foliage. It can be hidden in the wilderness and it wont give me away while I'm trying to hide. I assume if I'm "bugging out", I don't want to be found. Its probably not wise to have any brightly colored packs.
I've heard of the "Grey Man" concept. While I agree with the concept in modern civilized life. I don't think it really matters once SHTF. I believe that a "wrong do-er" would more likely go after the guy that looks like he's about to go camping than mess with the guy with the OD green pack and M4 carbine rifle slung across his chest.
That is my opinion. If you prefer the Grey Man concept, just make sure you get a sturdy pack that will hold all your gear.
