i've been considering getting something bigger than what I have now, that is a 72 hour bail out bag. I've been looking around and have favored la police gear's operator backpack. only problem is they never have them in stock. mean while i've been looking around for similar bags that won't break the bank. haven't found anything yet. any suggestion or recommendations? preferably in black.
A little more expensive than the one you showed but it comes in black!

Hello friends and neighbors // I found a Swiss Military, Water Proof, Engineers Pack for $11.00 at the Good Will in Asheville N.C.
This one was new but they sell used for $20 - $50 online.
Here is one for sale on ebay:164733164734
Good luck finding what works for you.

I use a 5.11 Rush 12 and a Rush 24.
They also make a 72:

More militaristic looking, but isn't anything in black going to be? Skipping the "Pork Eating Crusader" patches and blood type patches helps.
As long as I keep mine clean (no patches), I can check into a hotel with the pack and a briefcase, and no one looks at me twice. I think the sandstone (tan) model says "bugout" more than the black. I have a burr haircut, and carrying the multicam, I was waved around the security line at O'Hare airport, to the shorter line for active military. (I declined). So, yes, people that are trained to notice things like that, certainly do pay attention to color.
