HOW TO PROPERLY PACK A TACTICAL BACKPACK

Best Way To Carry Your Stuff When Bugging Out

(Packing Your Bag Like A Pro!)

When packing a tactical backpack, it is essential to organize your gear into two different categories: "Essential" and "Accessory." Your Essential Gear consists of the equipment that will provide you with the necessities for survival in a combat situation. In essence, these items are those without which you would not survive as long as possible. Specifically, this category includes water or water purification supply, food supply or means of hunting/trapping food, first-aid kit, and field manual. 

The other category - Accessories - includes anything else that can be effectively recycled or left behind if necessary. This category contains less vital but still necessary supplies such as anti-antidote serums, ammunition clips/magazines.

WHAT TO PACK IN YOUR TACTICAL BACKPACK

 

The best way to pack a tactical backpack is to throw everything into the central compartment and then throw that on top of everything else so that your clothes and equipment are packed as tightly as possible. This will save space and help prevent items from moving around during transit, reducing wear and tear on both tactical gear and more fragile personal belongings.

HOW TO PACK A TACTICAL BACKPACK

 

When packing the tactical backpack, you must fill and organize your equipment in such a way as to allow for easy and rapid access. The larger the tactical gear, the more likely this is possible.

Your knife or multitool should be placed on or near your back with its blade facing up, your pack's opening should be facing towards you, and all of your equipment (from left to right) should be broken down by function as follows: First Aid Kit; Utility & Repair Kit; Climbing Equipment; Navigation Tools; Hydration Gear; Safety Equipment.

THE FOUNDATION: PACKING THE BOTTOM OF YOUR BAG

 

The first step should be to ensure that your bag's bottom is cushioned by filling it with soft towels, clothes, shoes, or other bulky objects. This will give you more space for securing your valuables at the top of your bag.

The next step should be to pack heavier items at the bottom of your bag it should be padded shoulder straps or using clothing as padding, so they do not puncture anything on top. Next, place mobility aids like glasses and inhalers close to the bag's opening so they are easily accessible before you zip up its contents. Finally, you must put things inside plastic bags if they get wet or could cause a mess - protection against bad weather is also an advantage! 

THE IN-BETWEEN GEAR

The in-between gear for a practical backpacker is the tactical backpack. A tactical pack is a versatile option for a day or week-long backpacking trip without weighing too much. It's not going to take you through the extremes of the Himalayas, but it will get you from Point A to Point B without compromising your comfort level or taking up all your day with your survival needs. These models are usually equipped with hydration pockets (hydration bladder), multiple zippered storage compartments, and enough cushioned support padding to keep this bag from being an unhealthy choice for any athlete worth their salt.

WHAT TO PACK ON THE TOP OF YOUR TACTICAL BACKPACK

What to pack on the top of your tactical backpack is a tall order. Your top priority, at least when it comes to keeping personal safety in mind, should be documented that could identify you in the event of an emergency. I recommend getting your ID and passport out of your wallet right away; put them with any cash or other valuables, so they don't get lost if separated from the rest of your possessions. Likewise, be sure to grab prescriptions for any medications you need - but remember not to forget about less-major drugs like birth control pills! If necessary, take out significant numbers like insurance cards and medical records before heading into unfamiliar territory.

GEAR TO ATTACH TO THE OUTSIDE OF YOUR PACK

Many tactical backpacks are an excellent choice for attaching gear to the outside of your pack. This is especially useful if you have a backpack that's big enough to mount other equipment on its front side.

Tactical backpacks typically come with a tactical belt set. The waist belt set generally includes a holster and pistol mag carrier, as well as pouches for storing things like knives, flashlights, and multitools. It's also common to see additional MOLLE webbing, which can be used to mount other holsters or pouches using Velcro strips similar to those found sewed into the top side of the pack itself because most tactical bag uses an open cell mesh which has much better airflow than backpack fabric.

HOW TO PACK A SURVIVAL BACKPACK

Packing a survival backpack is different from packing a typical school book bag. Students typically pack books, pens, pencils, and paper, which are not survival gear. In contrast, items such as water filtration systems or hand-crank radio would be considered crucial in the event of an emergency. A good survival backpack will include a compass for navigating and securing food sources; fire starter/lighter tool for building fires to stay warm and cook meals; wire saw to cut wood and build shelters; first aid kit with supplies to address general health needs as well as specific medical requirements if someone has taken medications or been bitten by a poisonous snake.

Best Way To Organize A Tactical Backpack

The best way to organize a tactical backpack is to start by picking your most essential items in the small pockets inside the large compartment of the pack - preferable near your back for quickly reaching items. Next, put anything you might need during an emergency near your head and where you can get them fast. Finally, put any personal effects that are not required during a crisis at the bottom of the backpack.

A tactical pack's purpose is to provide storage space for all necessary supplies that one might need in any given situation - hiking, biking, concerts or tailgating, pretty much anything under the open sky. The point is it must be ready for activation at a moment's notice if ever needed. 

 Final Thoughts

Packing your tactical backpack (military backpacks) is a multi-step process. First, it's essential to organize and plan out what you will pack because one thing can affect another, like bringing water on top of the bag could make it heavier. You should also remember to get essential items for survival, such as food, shelter, a fire starter kit, or an emergency blanket (if applicable). The best way to do this is by first packing the bottom section with red rock outdoor gear that would be used last if needed and then build up from there. By making sure each item has its place and space in your bag, you'll find yourself more organized and prepared for (everyday carry )whatever may happen while carrying your load with confidence!
