Hello All,

What would you recommend for use as a bob for a family of 4?

When you say a BOB for a family of 4 do you mean one bag for everyone or one bag for each member of the family. If your talking about one bag for the whole family then your going to need something along the lines of a large duffel bag or maybe a large plastic storage bin. If your talking about one bag for each make sure you get the right sizes for each member, they actually have sizes just for children and women, the choices are endless, and so are prices. Ebay is a good place to pick up new and used backpacks and duffel's for a reasonable price. I wish I could narrow it down for you a little more but your question leaves a lot of options.

I would take a look at RedFlare's website. I will be buying a 2 person and 1 person BoB's from him after the first of the year, for my DW and DD1.

No, I am not affliated with RedFlare but I do like what he offers for sell (product line) and I will support him for the support he has provided ETS, among other reasons.

The OP didn't say bag. The idea of a family of four "bugging out" on foot carrying backpacks just doesn't play well for me. If I were in MI, I'd consider something other than a backpack/bag and snowshoes or cross-country skis.

Dave help us out here, your title for the post says BOB bag,set us straight, are you talking about a BOB = Bug Out Bag or a BOV = Bug out Vehicle ??

RAZ
Sorry

I thought the original post was titled "BOB Bag" I might be wrong, sometimes I forget to clean my glass's ......lol If we're talking about something with 4 wheels then perhaps a station wagon, mini van or extended cab truck.

Right you are, I read the text, not the title. A bag for a family of four. . . nothing comes to mind.

In case anybody didn't get my point, I have a BoB for each member of the family.

I will be making BoB's for the 4 legged "kids"-2 dogs and 1 cat during 2008.

I'm sorry for not saying that up front, I think I was having "Brain Flatulance" for a moment!!!
