If I load the bag, it weighs seven pounds and is heavier than most would pack it. None the less, it fits my back and sits on my hips well with the back of the bag firmly against my back. There is no tendency to roll as I have found in other fanny packs. For that, it gets about 10 stars.
Just for fun, I wanted to give you a list of what I packed in the bag, but I should warn you that I am a woman and a techy to boot, so your list of things you might put in such a bag may differ radically. I'll also tell you how I packed the bag, because if you just throw things in, you'll be able to pack considerably fewer items.
--Goal Zero 7-watt solar panel and its cords--accessory sack facing the back of the pack. Be aware that including a rigid panel will cut down on your available space. The rectangular, blocky shape of this bag, though, minimizes the problem.
--One pair of acrylic socks, folded double and under the solar panel.
--Two space bankets, also under the panel.
--An Outdoor Products Nylon tarp in its sack vertically on one end.
--A double emergency bivvy--package folded in half and placed vertically on the other end.
--A four by six inch first aide kit in a plastic bag vertically against the front of the bag.
--Two pairs of rolled up microfiber underwear in a Ziploc freezer bag, and wedged horizontally on the bag bottom between the tarp, solar panel, bivvy, and first aide kit. You now have a rectangular well in which you can put quite a bit of stuff.
--An extra packackage of four Goal rechargable AA batteries and a package of four rechargeable AAA batteries, both sets protecteded by double plastic ziplocks. These fit horizontally on top of the rolled up underware.
--Still filling up the middle: Four extra Wet Fire Tinders and 50 feet Paracord 325.
--A Sawyer Mini filtration system which consists of the filter, a squeeze bag, a flexable end that can be used like a straw, and a 50-ml cleaning syringe: The bag is rolled up and they are rubber banded together in the closes configration possible. Maybe a filter straw would take up less space.
--A chlorfloc pouch with tablets and directions:vertically behind first aid kit.
--A wire saw sandwiched between some cardboard: vertically behind chlorfloc pouch.
--An extra Couglan's match holder filled with water proof matches.
--Couglans lightest (about a 4-inch blade) folding pocket saw.
--A sewing kit containing a minimal kit in a cardboard fold over, one of the flat round holders filled with needles, a package of curved needles. They're all in a plastic bag.
--A pocket sized Fresnell lens in the sewing kit plastic bag.
--A Smith's knife sharpening tool just tucked into any available space.
--A small spool of thread, again, squeezed in anywhere.
FRONT POUCH which unfortunatelly doesn't have much room. This pouch is really stuffed, and one thing I could wish for is that it was a bit bigger
--The smaller, but not tiny Esbit folding stove which contains four 14-minute burn cubes. A Couglan's match holder filled with waterproof matches.
--A Doan's magnesium bar and striker
--Two Wet fire tinders.
--A tiny bag of two GI can openers
--A set of periodate water purification tablets and its cleaner.
--One of the long, thin Repel insect spray containers stuck up under the pouch top.
--The Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Battery pack.
--Four Marathon bars.
At the moment, the water bottle holder is reserved for a water bottle, but since I'd like my water easier to access, I'll probably use a canteen slung over my shoulder.
There is a Molle strap on the outside of the front pouch. To that, I've clipped a knife, which will probably migrate to my waist belt.I'll tie a light-weight trowl someplace. The Molle strip does provide a place onto which one might latch other items that would not comfortably fit in the pouch.
If I can find a Molle pouch, to put there, I can carry more food.
Incidentally, I've found that I can sit a SMALL backpack on top of a fanny pack for extra clothes, food, and tools. the fanny pack (and thus my hips) take most of the weight so the backpack shoulder straps just stabilize the pack.
If, you're a pack-rat like I am, enjoy stuffing this pack.
The pack contains two main compartments, an ancillary compartment on one side, and a bottle holder with elastic retention strap on the opposite side. In the main compartments I fit 2 emergency ponchos, 2 mylar emergency blankets,1 AA maglite, 1 pair wool socks, 1 pair gloves, water purification tablets, compass, topo map, 25 feet of 550 paracord, fire steel, 3 protein bars, 3 pairs of insta-heat hand warmers, and there is still room for more! In the exterior ancilarry compartment I fit an extra 10 rifle rounds and a small monocular with room to spare. In the bottle holder I fit a 32 oz. nalgene bottle without issue. Like I said, the pack is spacious.
The pack has some extra loops on the exterior for attaching things, and the padded hip pads make it comfortable to wear with some weight in it. The belt must be at least 48 inches long so it will work with larger people.
Great Value for the Price!
I was pleasantly surprised upon opening the amazon box containing this item. The pack seems to be very well made, with enough room for basic survival tools.
My pack now holds...
Mora Companion Knife, Compass, emergency blanket, gauze, Stansport Hard Anodized Aluminum Cook Set-1 Person, 100ft of paracord, small mag light, NALGENE Tritan 1-Quart Water Bottle and there is still more room for a survival fishing kit and some power bars.
This pack will definitely be an asset during hunting season this year as I can shed the heavy backpack and stay prepared with a mini survival pack around my waist.
The photo I am including shows items sticking out so as to show what fits inside. I have a set of extension tubes in one of the side pouches and a 90mm macro lens in the other. I have a field guide inside the front pocket and a 180mm f/2.5 lens and a Cokin Creative Flash in the main compartment. Without the Cokin flash, which is large, I'm sure that I could get another couple of lenses or a normal sized flash and another lens in there.
