    Hi folks, I'm sure this topic has been covered ad nauseum, the topic of bug out bags and firearms. To be clear, I am not assessing a basic get home bag or every day carry bag. I already have these. I'm trying to figure out what makes sense to pack between my car as a bugout vehicle and an...

    Is it wise to carry kevlar paracord in a Bug Out Bag, Get Home Bag or EDC bag? One of its applications might be to use it as a fire escape from a burning building.Therefore the paracord should have sufficient thickness. Kevlar paracord could also be used in a survival situation, to make a...

    I think a bug-out bag or get-home-bag should be relatively light. For example 30 pounds for an average healthy adult man, and less for most women and children. There are government regulations for maximum carrying weight, to prevent chronic damage to the spine. These regulations can be found...

    Has anyone used a 2 person pup tent without the poles? It looks like someone could string a guideline through both ends of the end and use that guideline to support the tent rather than poles. Reason for this? Be able to reduce the size of the tent down as much as it can without the poles...

    I wasn't sure if there were posts on bug out bags for children. I have 3 kids and just ordered some bags for them to prep for emergency bags. I've never prepared a bag for child or adult so this is a new thing for me. I wanted to ask y'all what would be best to pack in the kids' bags. We have...

    When someone decides to get into prepping and they start reading through the various blogs and forums, it can be easy to become overwhelmed. Since I founded Survivalist Boards, I’ve lost count of the number of newbies asking the same (but legitimate) questions and making the same mistakes. And...

    Christmas is coming up and I would like to gift the grandkids a backpack that would serve as a platform to build off of. The packs are a surplus 3 day assault pack. From there I plan on getting two canteens for each pack, and a single canteen cup for each. So far: Surplus 3 day Pack Canteen...

    Sorry if this is a pretty basic question. I have heard that a go bag is supposed to be 10% of your weight. Is that the same as a 3 day BOB? I only weigh 140lb so 10% of my weight would be only 14lb. That seems a little light, personally and it doesn't leave a lot of room for gear. I am pretty...

    Hey Guys, What should be the basic tools and equipment that should be included in two days hiking? Thanks in advance :thumb:

    My B.O.B is a work in progress. I find that I'm never satisfied with it, not even close. To heavy, wrong contents, wrong bag, whatever my thoughts may be. It mostly comes down to what I want to have vs. weight. I'm a backpacker so this issue is not new to me but with backpacking i'm not as...

    Hi, Preppers. I'm looking for some advice from you all. I'm a college student living a 10 hour drive from my family back home. I keep thinking about the worst case scenario if something were to happen and all **** broke loose. I would need to make it from Chicago to South Dakota so I can regroup...

    Hey all! Just curious as to everyones opinion of my kit. It's not quite and inch and not quite a BOB. It's intent is for urban survival or nomadic travel from community to community. I just want to see what other preppers think of it, just so that I can make any improvements. In open to...

    I just came across this and thought it might be of interest: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/740457940/firefly-the-ultimate-swiss-army-knife-accessory?ref=email It's a small ferro 'rod' that replaces the toothpick in a Swiss army knife. Might be useful if you don't use the toothpick very...

    How well does desert camo work in the woods? There are some three day desert camo assault packs on ebay. But, before I buy, how well does desert camo work in the woods? Maybe this would be a good topic for an article?

    BOB's everywhere you look its BOB's..... Its as if everyone is preparing to run out the front door to the nearest patch of woods as soon as anything major happens. I often wonder why people don't focus more energy on Bugging in.... seems more logical. I get it, its good to have a BOB in case...
