Food Gathering Bags

You know I don't think over all the discussions I've been in over the years about food to be found out there in the wild, anyone ever bring up exactly how they plan to carry it back to camp. I've used my pockets for berries and fruits, pouches for the same and bugs, but never really had anything dedicated more than fishing line and a ziplock bag. And that seems like it ought to be a pretty important prep whether for the BOB or BOL supplies. I've been thinking about it and am about to put in an order for a Maxpedition drop pouch for my BOB as they seem like they'd be an excellent option. I love Max gear. I have quite a bit of it and it's tough and top quality. The drop pouch is designed to hold mags, so it should stand up to fruit, bugs, fish and meat. Easy to rinse out too.

What do you use or think about it?

I have a small to medium sized back-pack that rolls up nicely and tucks away just for carrying whatever I may happen across.

The bag with a pull cord is a great idea. That reminded that a lot of the kids at the high school where I work use them as backpacks, mainly for their PE clothes. They're small, light weight with small straps they sling over their shoulders and wear like a backpack. Easy on, easy off, quick access.

This is the one I use, Original Heavyweight Classic Messenger Bag Olive Green: Clothing

It's a good sized bag that's well made from heavy duty canvas. I like that has 4 external pockets leaving the large main pouch for forage goodies. The 2" adjustable strap is a cotton weave and very comfortable for sling or cross body carry. It comes in other earth tone colors too.
That's cool Seneca. As long as it has good stitching, you can't beat canvas. Just found out my mother in law is here for another week and a half. Might talk her into making me one since I have the canvas.
