This book is well written and informative. If you want information about carrying the equipment you'd need during an "event", this book will serve you well, particularly
for those that would be looking at a SHTF bug out situation.
From the Author
Among professional military, private military contractors, law enforcement tactical response units and field security experts, the topic of load carry systems is always being discussed. If you were to visit the internet forums and blogs where these professionals frequent, the subject is always one of the most popular.
Why does such a simple thing as carrying equipment experience such high traffic levels?
One only has to attend a course that includes firearms training (carbines or rifle) to understand the issues. If the class involves any type of physical movement, it soon becomes apparent why this subject is not so simple. It is common to witness the students shedding gear, applying band aids to blisters and always rearranging their equipment. It is not uncommon to see an obstacle course littered with gear after the class has ran the gauntlet.
For beginning preppers, this subject can be daunting. There are so many options, terms and variables that some people can easily be confused or ignore the subject all together. Yet in a post-TEOTWAWKI environment, most of us will likely have to carry around significantly more gear than what we do in our everyday lives. When the subject of defense is combined with mobility, the topic becomes even more muddled.
This book is written for beginners.
It is designed to address the basics for anyone who realizes the need for personal equipment carry systems. This work is intended to save the reader countless hours of web surfing, equipment exchanges and blisters.
