    For as inexpensive as they are, they are well worth the money.

    Depending on your needs, the Polish Bread Bag may also be a good option. @Panzer made a good video showing the two bags:



    The OD bags seem to be made from softer, lighter material. The Tan bags seem to be made from a heavier material. Internal dividers are sometimes the large panel, sometimes just an elastic band, and sometimes not there at all. The OD bags are more likely to have a bigger internal divider, and less likely to have no divider at all.

    If I were going to carry one of these bags, I would mod mine to have webbing on the sides like Panzer did. I would also remove whatever internal divider is sewn in there, and replace it with a removable divider panel held in place with velcro.

    Few years back they were about $6 bucks each......bought a bunch of them...and use them for everything.....LOL
    Carried my "hunting fanny pack" around my waist....but found the it all fit.
    More comfortable to carry...
    And fanny pack can still be taken out to return to fanny ack ...then use the Finn-bag for other things.

    Finally got me a bag! It's the perfect size for a day outing or hike. This would be a fantastic Get Home or car bag. I'm pretty excited about it because I've been eying it for a while.

    Needs a water bottle, a camp cup, knife, MEST tarp, fire kit, small PSK and some cordage and I'll be set.

    Thanks Andy.

    Glad you like it! We're also a great source for water storage, camp cups, knives, fire kits, PSKs, and cordage.
