What Is A Home Defense Bag?
A Home Defense Bag or an Intruder Defense Bag is a bag that you keep easily accessible and close to your bedside that you have packed with some tactical and emergency gear that would or could be useful to you in a home invasion situation or just when you hear something go bump in the night. My Home Defense Bag is an Optics Planet OPMOD P.A.C 3.0 (Personal Articles Carrier) bag also formerly called a First Responders Bag. Which bag you use doesn’t matter as much as that the design needs to meet a few characteristics that will enable you to deal with a home invasion threat in an expedient manner. Some people might like to use a War belt type setup and some people may prefer a simple old school fanny pack. Personally I choose this OPMOD P.A.C. 3.0 bag because it meets the following characteristics. It is easy to put on quickly, even in the dark no matter if you are dressed or not (sorry for the visual). It is also large enough to carry a few essentials (see those shown in the video below) but yet small enough not to be too obtrusive so as to get in the way or bump in to walls or make a lot of noise as you are walking through your hallways, etc. I prefer for the bag to come in dark and subdued colors. Because the majority of the time this bag will just be hanging silently next to my bed, I wanted it to be reasonably priced but still tough enough so that I could use it for other outdoor applications if I decided to in the future.
