who makes them?

i know of CSM, eagle (impossible to find), TAG (discontinued), BDS (not the shape i want), and Ares Armor (think theirs is too small).

anyone who has experience with the CSM i would love to hear it. mostly stuck between the regular and large size, their site doesnt list the dimensions.

looking for a US made (so emdom and maxped are out).

using it as a survival bag. i know there are specific hiking/hunting ones, but those are typically too big, and i want one i can wear with my pack on, and not be inclined to take it off. also, i know i can put a belt pouch on but i dont typically wear a belt when hiking.

I have owned the regular-sized CSM fannypack for over 2 years, used it as a survivalbag during hiking, firstaidbag during hunting and snackbag during mountainbiking.

Goodquality cordura and ITW-buckle.
Barely a scratch on the fabric, no broken seams despite the fact that its been dragged through thick folliage more than a few times.

The main compartment is around 1-1,2l volume while the front compartment is around 0,3l.
As a comparison my Glock 19c + 2 magazines fit perfectly in the main compartment with room to spare when I tested it.

I've used emdom and even though it is made overseas, the quality was great!

I have had the same experience. I vastly prefer my Emdom model to the similarly sized small CSM model. Granted, I still own both and am very happy with either.

i dont have a problem with emdom either, i have their strobe pouch and the quality is top notch. i just prefer to buy US made when i can.

fish, how big of a difference is the size between the two? do you have dimensions of the emdom?

i emailed CSM to see if i can dimensions for the large.

im half tempted to buy both and sell the one i decide i dont need. i dont want it to be too big but i dont want it to be packed so tight that i cant throw another thing i may need in either.

I also have the ordinary Fanny pack from CSM, used it for my MSOB Loadout. Really awesome thing this... Quality is freaking awesome and you can feel just by picking it up that you could probably rape it with a flamethrower without making any damage... What i am trying to say is: BUY IT! Worth the money times two, easy...

I ve got an EI made one in Ranger Green, but I m not sure whether it has the capacity of one liter.
It has a flat document pocket on the back, it would fit a short fixed blade or a wallet too, the main compartment which will fit a Glock 19, but I m not sure about the spare mags and a small pocket on the front which will fit two MS 2000 Strobes.

I mainly use mine for urban stuff or when I m out teaching a survival course or something.

You can still find them on ebay some times, vexas_vixin was the source where I got mine about a year ago...

I have a CSM one, I've used it as an IFAK and for various items while rappelling. I don't use it much now as I'm in an instructor billet but it's served me well.

Long story short, I realized I never followed up on this, the Emdom one is the best one going unless you have a very specific requirement that another matches in terms of size or function (i.e. csm breacher.)
