Forget about the fact that it comes in a great and durable Gerber bag, which in and of it self, is good enough. It will handle all that you can throw at it, or all that you can throw it in.
The Go Bag comes with;
- Maxpedition Mongo Versipack in Black
- MP600-ST (Sight Tool)
- MOLLE mountedEZ-Out DPSF
- S30V BlackRecon Task Light
- Frog Lube CLP - 4oz liquid bottle
- Metal Water Bottle
- Write-in-the-rain note pad
- Pocket Reference Guide
Again, the bag is great for carrying all this plus any additional items that you need for the day, etc. There are many pockets, pouches and other storage areas. Some are zipped, some velcro’d and some latched.
The sight tool that comes with it will adjust sights on an AR-15 or compatible sight. The Multi Tool is black matte and smooth. It includes various screwdrivers (both flat and Phillips) as well as a knife, pliers and wire cutters. It comes in a black Velcro closeable belt pouch which actually will attach to the versipack strap.
The task light is bright, and has white, blue, red and green lights. The white is for general use, blue for fluid ID, green for map reading and red for night vision
Frog lube will make even the most rusted joint move like two pieces of glass on water.
The water bottle is washable and will keep your fluids cold. The top has a carabineer so it clip to your belt or the bag.
While it hasn’t rained since receiving the go bag, it has snowed. In white out conditions, I let the notebook get considerably moist. I then wrote on it with a sharpie type pen. It did not run nor smudge.
Lastly, is the Pocket Reference Guide. It will make you the “Cliff Clavin” of your neighborhood, or at least a plethora of useless (and useful) information.
Gerber is synonymous with great gear, knives and technically advanced tools and outdoor equipment. Their quality is as high as it can get. Some tools and products come and go. I still have a Gerber Mark 1 from 1985 that looks like it was just made. They also keep their products affordable for the masses. All this combined is what keeps them as popular as they are.
