When society breaks down, your pack is the only home you can rely on to keep your stuff safe. The Patagonia Black Hole might be your best bet: The practically bulletproof 1,200-denier polyester fabric with TPU-film laminate and DWR finish thwarts bad weather and worse teeth. Whether you’re hiding out in the wilderness or spelunking around an abandoned town, this rugged top-loader works well as a travel bag, a crag pack, or a dayhiker. A lack of accessories and outside cords keeps grasping undead hands from getting a grip, but left and right cinches hold a shotgun and a bow.
