  1. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    Here is a list of my EDC Day Pack which I guess you could call my Last Resort Bug Out EDC. It's a small bag that fits in a Maxpedition Beefy, Versipack or the Pigmy Falcon II. It's a really tight fit in the Beefy and fits better in the Versipack or the Pigmy Falcon II. If you use the Pigmy...

    Well I’ve been looking high and low for BOB’s for the wife and me and it’s tough. Just about every pack I think I want is a FORTUNE! Obviously I want nice packs, but I don’t think I need to spend $500/ pack to get some. I also don’t want some junk packs that will not live being overstuffed. I...

    I have seen people using their 72 hour kits more as a convenience kit rather than a survival kit. They stuff their 72 hour kit with un-necessary items, which are just good to have and you can easily do without them for few days. I believe the main purpose of emergency kit is to help you survive...

    Let's say you have to be on the move for 3 days and all you can carry is 1-2 pounds of food. Any food is good for as long as it doesn't make you too thirsty because you would need to carry water too and you need to be careful with it. Any natritionist here?

    Everyone should have a 72hr kit, with food, water, radio, first aid, etc. to last you and your family for the first 3 days of a SHTF, situation. (Unless of course you have a 72 day, or 72 month kit.) But it’s nice to have a kit ready, so you know that you have 3 days of supplies at hand, in...

    I'm sorry to say that the price on these are inflated by SG. They are on Majorsurlus.com for less. That is where SG got them from. At Majorsurplus you get the 72 hour kit for 49.95 and SG wants 79.95 for the same thing. There Grab-N-Go kit from SG is 249.95 I think and the equivilent at...

    I am teaching a brief 2 hour course on "72 hour kits on a college students budget" Beyond just the contents of a kit I will be teaching a few basic urban survival skills. My questions are these; 1. What would you put in the kit and WHY? Keep in mind some of these people won't be able to spend...
