    Default Backpacks for Locate Equipment???

    Hi All-
    We cover some islands for one call requests and have to take a ferry out to them, many times without the car-especially during summer months. Does anybody know if a back pack for equipment (Vivax/RD etc) exists and if so where could you get one? Thanks for your help!

    I do not think they make a backpack, but I would go to an army/navy store and pick up an alice pack. Plenty of pockets and deep enough to carry your equipment

    I found this safety vest: U-TECK | Pack-Rat Locator Vest

    It's not quite a back pack but will work good for paint and flags..

    The vest is handy for doing long locates like several miles or so. They used to advertise on this site.

    The Alice pack, however, is pretty studly and you might even pick up some chicks with it.

    AWP makes a tool backpack that has a reinforced bottom and extra heavy shoulder straps, you can get them at Lowe's, I think it's around 50 bucks.
