The Flight Vest by Ogio is a piece of equipment I want to introduce as an excellent option for prepping. People talk about bug out bags, however there are other options that are available that will enable you to carry more gear or equipment, without being limited by added weight.
Using this vest in conjunction with your bug out bag, will enable you to maximize what you can carry. By having this loaded and at the ready as you would your bug out bag, it is a grab and go item just as your bag. This is not the same as a Tactical Vest.
This vest also has very good weight distribution, a hydration bladder, and tons of storage ability.
