About Yukon Outfitters

Check out the product page of the Bugout Bag

Got the Tactical Alpha backpack on a previous Woot. Nice quality, more compartments and places to hang things than I know what to do with, good value. I’d buy another one but I still haven’t figured out how to use all the space in the one I have.

Coyote/Foliage sling pack directs me to the main deal page instead of a page for the item.

Trying to purchase one but nothing happens when I click on the bag I want. Been Wooting for years and years, never had this issue.

Looks like this was this was the original link (which shows sold out):
http://www.woot.com/offers/overwatch-sling-pack-coyote-foliage-1

But they updated it with a new link which works:
http://www.woot.com/offers/overwatch-sling-pack-coyote-foliage-2

It appears there was an error and we have corrected it.

Yukon Tactical MG-5032 Overwatch Sling Pack - Coyote/Foliage
should be available now

Thanks for the patience!

Has anyone sent these bags through an airport? They look tough, but have lots of straps and flaps hanging off, so I wonder how well it would do through baggage check.

I have both the bugout bag and slingpack, they are great! However, I ordered Coyote color for each, both arrived Olive Drab…and tagged as Coyote. Am I just unlucky or are others getting colors other than ordered? Not worth the time for exchanging, I like them anyway.

These guys should bring back the Yukon Hammocks :D! <— SEE THIS WOOT, SEE THIS!?

I recall seeing on the last big sale that quite a few people got bags in different colors than what they ordered. I believe you are the first I’ve heard of someone getting a mislabeled bag though.

I really wanted the range bag but, at the time, the Bugout Bag was the one on sale. I took a chance with it as I wanted a range bag that had versatile carry options. You lose a couple of inches of depth on the ends with the Bugout Bag versus the Range Bag, but I don’t miss it at all when I easily slip the backpack straps onto my shoulders! :smiley:

As far as ability to carry, the Bugout Bag packs everything I want/need for the range. I’ve got 15 handgun mags in one of the side pockets, OTIS cleaning kit in the othr, 3 pairs of eye pro in the top interior pockets. In the bottom main compartment is all my boxes of ammo for the range that day (gotta distribute the weight!) which can hold about 10 boxes of various calibers with plenty of room to spare. Middle main compartment has 3 sets of ear pro, whatever handguns I’m taking to the range, and other accessories like knee pads, drop holster, 3 point and single point sling. The top main compartment has all my concealed holsters that I practice with at the range. I stuff all my range targets into the zippered area on the back/bottom of the bag where the shoulder straps tuck into.

All in all, I’d love to have this same type bag with the exact depth of the Range bag, but because I can’t, the Bugout Bag is the next best thing!

Some Amazon reviews talk about shoddy quality.

I just bought the bugout bag in grey. This will be used for 3 day business trips. I own quite a bit of yukon outfitters stuff. I use the stockridge 72 hour bag as a bug out bag, and there breakdown rifle bag holds an SBR, pistol,and mags perfectly.

About the quality it is NOT on par with 5.11 gear which I also own but for the price the reduction in durability should be expected. They still make great gear in my opinion.

The biggest difference is the zipper quality the 5.11 bags use the ykk zippers, I havent had one fail yet and they can be ripped open and closed at any angle. the yukon zippers are on par with the Voodu, condor, and sog stuff. These are ok but you have to pay attention when using the zippers so they dont bind or peel apart.

Anyone know if a taken down AR will fit in the bugbag?

I’ve got the range bag and bugout from previous woots as well as a bunch of their other stuff. I wouldn’t call anything they make shody - not even close.

Their bladed tools (machetes/handaxes etc) are cheap, but for the money still not shody.

It’s close. A standard AR-15 upper with a 16inch barrel and A2 flash suppressor is about 26 inches. Perhaps if you fit it diagonally.

However, I wouldn’t use this bag for carrying a taken down AR for a few reasons.

First, there are already bags out there specifically designed for the purpose at about the same price point. They include straps on the interior to secure the parts of the rifle while in transit, a padded flap to separate the upper and lower, etc. Use the right tool, or in this case bag, for the job.

Second, and not an issue for some, is that the bag is too “tacticool” for me. I have friends who are what I call “couch commandos”. They love Call of Duty games and all of their gear MUST be tacticooled out and you can spot them from a mile away when they head to the range. I live in the city and when I’m toting my rifle around to the range, shop, or occasional hunt on my acreage I like to be discreet about it. It’s about a 40-50 yard walk from my apartment door to my truck past a playground with kids and parents usually enjoying it. I respect my neighbors enough to be discreet when I have to pass by them and their families with my shooting gear. Not everyone is comfortable with firearms (even here in Texas), especially around their families.

Google “discreet AR-15 case” and you should get plenty of solid options designed specifically for the purpose of carrying a taken down Ar-15. Mine looks like a slightly longer generic day backpack on the outside, but on the inside there are straps and pockets for my rifle, mags, cleaning kit, etc.

I’ve even seen a guy who modified an old and brand name tennis racket bag to carry his broken down rifle in. He added Velcro straps to the interior to secure his gear. When I see him at the range he looks like he got lost on his way to the country club. haha

I bought a bug out bag last time. I thought it would be a good replacement for a small piece of luggage I usually take on short trips.

Turns out it holds so much stuff I took it on a week long trip to Texas. It held all my clothes, tablet computer, shaving kit, plus some assorted charging cables.

My only complaint was it had a funky chemical smell inside when I got it. I opened it up and put it on the screened in patio for a couple of weeks to air out. That took care of the smell.
