Our Gear Option Their Gear Option Comment
NcSTAR Small Assault Backpack
HCB Pack by Condor Outdoor
Both are quality, however their pack isn't a backpack, it's a hydration bladder stuffed from bottom to top, no compartments
N/A
Small Tool Pouch
This is needed because the "pack" that they use has no pockets, ours has 5 compartments. We are taking 1/2 a point on this one based on the fact our backpack is REALLY a backpack.
The Verdict - Well, considering our bag uses a real backpack vs. a converted hydration carrier, we take the point on this section. Even though they offer a small pouch, our pack has 5 different compartments and doesn't need one.
Rations & Hydration
Our Gear Option Their Gear Option Comment
SOS - Emergency Rations 3600 Kcal Ration Bars

1.5 liters to one liter
N/A

LifeStraw Personal Water Filter

The Verdict -They offer more potable water and water purification tablets. However, you have to have a water container to use the water tablets, and the water packets are heavy. We offer a sufficient amount of water and a LifeStraw that can filter 264 gallons of water and filter water from any water source i.e. mud puddles. We take the point in this category.

The Verdict -They offer more potable water and water purification tablets. However, you have to have a water container (that's not included) to use the water tablets and the water packets are heavy. We offer a sufficient amount of water and a LifeStraw that can filter 264 gallons of water and filter water from any water source i.e. mud puddles. We take the point in this category.
Tools & Blades
Our Gear Option Their Gear Option Comment
Multi-function Swiss Style Knife
Gerber Dime Multi Tool
We we opted for a survival knife/ saw and entrenching tool instead
SOG Knives Revolver Seal - FX21N
N/A
The Revolver Seal is the quintessential survival knife, doubling as a capable hunting knife and a saw. 
SOG Knives Entrenching Tool
N/A
When you need to move sand, dirt or snow you wish you had that shovel close at hand
UST Sharpening Stone
N/A
dual sharpening stone offers a combination of fine and coarse textures.
The Verdict - Basically, they spent the money in this section on a 3 inch multi-tool and we spent our money on a SOG survival knife ... and an entrenching tool, swiss styled knife and sharpening stone. We feel that our choice of tools, and the retail value of our tools vs. theirs, clearly gives us the point in this section.

The Verdict - Both sides are pretty equal in this category, until you consider having to be outside during your bug out mission. Our kit offers a superior survival factor with an additional tarp and a GI Issue wool blanket. If you are outside in the rain with the temporary shelter we both provide, you will be very happy to have an additional tarp and extra warmth provided by the wool blanket. With our waterproof bivvy and blanket you can survive in freezing temperatures. Point goes to the Alpha Limited.

The Verdict - Again, we get the point in this section. Their kit offers a few extra non-essential items like: Goggles, wet naps, antiseptic swabs and bandages. However, when you look at the shear number of items that our kit offers that theirs does not have, and the fact that we offer a MOLLE kit case, we clearly get the point.

N/A

The Verdict, Our condor pack is superior in every way. Check out ratings and reviews for the Condor Outdoors 125 3 Day Assault pack, they are excellent. The Condor has been around for ten years and has been used by us for years, it's huge for a 3 Day pack and tough as nails. The hydration systems are the same, however we throw in a Condor MA54 Tactical MOLLE Tool Pouch, a $29 value. This saves room inside the pack and gives you easy access to your most used items and tools. This is an easy point for the Echo Limited.

N/A
The aluminum cup has a handle and is perfect for boiling water.
The Verdict, We have this section covered from top to bottom with an demonstrable advantage over the competition. First, right off the bat, we offer an additional 2400 in calories over and beyond what they offer. As far as potable water, they offer an additional liter of long term water. However, we offer a water filter that filters 100,000 gallons, as well as three different water containers. You can fill all of our containers with water, drop a purification tablet in them and keep moving. When you consider the canteen, aluminum cup, water filter and extra calories, the Echo Limited gets the point.

Their multi-tool is far superior to ours, we dropped the expensive multi-tools because we rarely used them in the field.

N/A
Machetes are one of the more useful edged tools in the world. They clear brush, and blazed trails, chop wood, made shelters,
SOG Knives - Folding Saw
N/A
A saw is an essential piece of survival equipment. The longer the saw, the easier to use, but the harder to carry. SOG achieved a nice balance between the two.
UST Whet Rock Sharpening Stone
N/A
Because tools get dull over time
The Verdict - Basically, they spent the money in this section on an over-priced multi-tool and we spent our money on additional tools which includes a SOG Seal Revolver survival knife ... and an SOG entrenching tool, SOG SOGfari machete, SOG folding saw, swiss styled knife and sharpening stone. We feel that our choice of tools, and the retail value of our tools vs. theirs, clearly gives us the point in this section. Easy point for the Echo Limited.

UST 30-Day Lantern Titanium
N/A
The 30 Day Duro Lantern is a bright, clean light with up to 700 lumens. It runs 30 days continuously on Low and runs 22 hours continuously on High.
The Verdict - This section you will have to decide between a really nice radio, or better lighting and redundancy. Although we offer a radio too, theirs is much better than ours. However, that's where the comparisons end. We offer a 3 times more powerful SOG rechargeable flashlight, 960 lumens, and then two additional light sources: Hand crank dynamo light, Streamlight 22 lumen Headlamp and a UST camp lantern that lasts 30 days on one set of batteries. Being experienced survivalist has taught us that redundancy trumps putting all of your eggs in one basket. The retail value for ours is higher. So we're taking the point.

Waterproof Pouch 5" x 7" Document pouch
N/A
When bugging out, it is advisable that you carry all personal documents i.e. birth certificate.
The Verdict, The name of this section is "Shelter and Warmth. If you judge by these two words, we easily take the point in this section. First, the sleeping bags. They offer a lower temperature rating than us, however we feel confident in saying that our Alps Mountaineering (same company as Browning) mummy bag, is of a superior quality. Now, let's talk about shelter. They offer a plastic emergency tent, which is no comparison to our UST Tube-Tarp, which is a permanent tent shelter with stakes and guy lines. To this, we add an additional 6X8 camo tarp for extra protection from the elements as well as a full rain suit as opposed to a poncho. Then we offer a 5 liter UST dry bag to keep all of your gear dry as well as a document pouch for personal items. Easy point for the Echo Limited.

Mosquito Net No See-Um

The Verdict, Both bags offer excellent first aid kits, however, ours is a MOLLE kit that can be mounted on the PALS system on the outside of the pack giving you quick access to first aid items and saving room inside the pack. Then however, we add a foot care kit, snake bite kit, hygiene kit, bug spray, mosquito netting and toilet paper. On a long bug out, those items will be a blessing. Mosquito protection is very important. Mosquitos have killed more humans than any other animal on the planet. Point - Echo Limited.

The Verdict - Unless you feel that: Paper Napkins, Light Sticks, Ball Point Pen, Pad of Paper, Earplugs are essential survival items, we easily take the point in this category. Instead of the pen, paper and earplugs, we offer: a Zip dry-bag, Fishing Line, hooks, sinker, float, Needle & Tread, Wire Saw and Snare Wire that all comes in a one liter water bottle. Then, on top of that, we offer a field sewing kit, Wetfire, for starting fires in the rain or with wet wood. Most importantly, we offer a professional Army marching compass. This makes planning your bug out mission easier and more accurate. You can use this compass in conjunction with a map for pinpoint navigation accuracy.

MA54 Large Tool Pouch
N/A
There are three ways to use the pouch: 1. Using the zipper stopper creates a low profile utility pouch. 2. Use the paracords to create a 90 degree angle and make a work station. 3. Use it as a stand-alone tool pouch and it opens flat for accessibility
The Verdict - Okay, let's address the 899 lb gorilla in the room. Our pack costs an extra $100 than their's. Please keep reading though, as you scroll down you will see that this is the best $100 in survival-bucks that you can spend. Our condor pack is superior in every way. Check out ratings and reviews for the Condor Outdoors 125 3 Day Assault pack, they are excellent. The Condor has been around for ten years and has been used by us for years, it's huge for a 3 Day pack and tough as nails. The hydration systems are the same, however we throw in a Condor MA54 Tactical MOLLE Tool Pouch, a $29 value. This saves room inside the pack and gives you easy access to your most used items and tools. This is an easy point for the Echo Limited.

N/A
The aluminum cup has handles and can be used for boiling water

The Verdict, We have this section covered from top to bottom with an demonstrable advantage over the competition. First, right off the bat, we offer an additional 2400 in calories over and beyond what they offer. As far as potable water, they offer long term water which weighs 8 lbs of weight to the pack. We assume that people who buy advanced BOBs like this will be bugging out around renewable water sources. To that, we offer 3 different water containers that can be filled on the go using water tablets to purify.

Speaking of water, we offer a water filter that filters 100,000 gallons, that's not a typo. Then we offer an additional 2400 calories in the way of SOS ration bars. All in all, you can eat longer, drink longer and live longer with our set-up. Point goes to the Echo 5.

Tools & Blades
Our Gear Option Their Gear Option Comment
Multifunction Swiss styled knife
SOG B63 Power Lock EOD 2.0 Multi Tool
Their multi-tool is far superior to ours, we dropped the expensive multi-tools because we rarely used them in the field. However we added tools more useful in the field.

SOG Escape Folding Knife
We did not see a need to duplicate a knife. We love SOG, however, this is their LEAST expensive knife and quite small.
SOG Knives Hand Axe
SOG Survival Hawk
Their axe is "tomahawk" styled, which makes it cool for throwing, however for chopping wood, it is not nearly as effective. We used to use the "hawk" series axes, but opted for the hand axe because of usefulness.
SOG Knives - Entrenching Tool/ Saw
Camp Trowel
Their shovel is an off-brand that isn't even close in comparison to the SOG entrenching tool. when you need to move sand, dirt or snow you'll wish you had a quality shovel. SOG's all steel construction entrenching tool uses a tempered steel blade with teeth cut into it for cutting and slashing.
59298 SOGFari Machete Machete
N/A
Machetes are one of the more useful edged tools in the world. They clear brush, and blazed trails, chop wood, made shelters,
SOG Knives - Folding Saw
N/A
A saw is an essential piece of survival equipment. The longer the saw, the easier to use, but the harder to carry. SOG achieved a nice balance between the two.
Whet Rock Sharpening Stone
N/A
Tools and blades take more effort to use and are less functional when they are dull
The Verdict - Basically, they spent the money in this section on an over-priced multi-tool and we spent our money on additional tools which includes a SOG Hand axe ... and an SOG entrenching tool, SOG SOGfari machete, SOG folding saw, swiss styled knife and sharpening stone. We feel that our choice of tools, and the retail value of our tools vs. theirs, clearly gives us the point in this section. If you are buying this bug out bag for a mission longer than 2 days, you have to give the point to the Echo 5. Not to mention the retail value in this kit is off the charts in our favor.
Lights, Electronics & Energy

SunJack 14W Folding Solar Panel
N/A
SunJack helps operators stay charged on the go anywhere the sun shines. 14 Watt Portable Solar Charger with dual 2 Amp USB output ports

The Verdict - This section you will have to decide between a really nice radio, or better lighting, renewable energy, and outstanding redundancy. Although we offer a radio too, theirs is much better than ours. However, that's where the comparisons end. We offer a SOG solar rechargeable flashlight that is 3 times more powerful theirs, 960 lumens. To this, we add thre additional light sources: A dynamo hand crank flashlight, a SunJack camp-light and a rechargeable SunJack headlamp.

So that you will never be in the dark, we offer the SunJack 14 watt MOLLE foldable salar panel that can be deployed directly on the pack while you are moving. The solar panel plugs directly into a 8000 Mh battery pack that can charge you cell phone, flash light, headlamp, camp light. The battery can be fully charged in 4-5 hours of direct sunlight and will charge your cell phone, flashlight and headlamp and still have enough power to run your camp light for a few hours. HUGE point goes to the Echo 5.

N/A
The uses for this extra large and extra strong contractor's garbage bag are virtually countless. It can be used as a bear-bag, pack cover, dry bag, water collection, ground tarp, top tarp ... literally endless uses.

The Verdict, The name of this section is "Shelter and Warmth. If you judge by these two words, we easily take the point in this section. First, the sleeping bags. They offer a lower temperature rating than us, however we feel confident in saying that our Alps Mountaineering (same company as Browning) mummy bag, is of a superior quality. To help stave off hypothermia, we also offer an Alps Mountaineering ground mat that insulates you from the cold ground, and throw in a pair of Rothco's warm duty gloves, a $19 value.

Now, let's talk about shelter. They offer a plastic emergency tent, which is no comparison to our SnugPak Ionosphere Down-range tactical tent. This tent alone sells for $140 alone and is used by the UK's SAS ans special forces in Aulstailia, its a beast. To this, we add an additional 6X8 camo tarp for extra protection from the elements as well as a full rain suit as opposed to a poncho. Then we offer a 5 liter UST dry bag to keep all of your gear dry as well as a document pouch for personal items. Easy point for the Echo 5.

The Verdict, Both bags offer excellent first aid kits, however, ours is a MOLLE kit that can be mounted on the PALS system on the outside of the pack giving you quick access to first aid items and saving room inside the pack. Then however, we add a foot care kit, snake bite kit, hygiene kit, bug spray, mosquito netting, Potassium Iodide (IOSAT) FOR NUCLEAR EMERGENCIES, QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge and toilet paper. On a long bug out mission, these items will be a blessing. Mosquito protection is very important. Mosquitos have killed more humans than any other animal on the planet. Point - Echo 5.
