bug out bag

  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I went for a short hike spontaneously today. And had considered having a bag ready so I could just pop out for a short time and go bush. Nothing serious nothing clever. And then I considered that this is where a bob starts. Not at surviving for weeks with no supplies. So I may have a kit...
  2. Food and water
    I'm wondering what would be the best source of food to carry for my 72 hour bag. An additional note: I would be carrying for both myself and my 3 year old. MRE's are very easy, if expensive, and seem like the top pick. But is there something better out there? Or would a "snacking" approach...

    I remembered today that I had posted a list of my BOB items a good while back and got great feedback. I said I'd post pics so here they are. Took me forever, I know. Life has been crazy lately. I haven't posted any pics here before, so I hope I got it right. I still plan on putting in some...

    Define "survival kit." In the survivalist community there is a lot of talk about making a SHTF survival kit. The kit usually involves a bug out bag, food, clothes, maybe one person tent, firearm, ammunition, first aid kit,,,, just your usual stuff. The food in the bug out bag is supposed to...

    I was bored one day and decided what I could pack into a old used can of green beans. Kind of surprised how much will fit. Did this for fun turns halfway decent little kit. Let know what you think. Wes

    Hi, I have an ILBE Pack that I've used for hiking, and it came with the Assault Pack and hydration system bladder. My question is, how do I properly attach the Assault Pack and bladder to the main pack? And second, if I have a military 3-level sleeping bag (with cold bag, very cold bag, and...

    Looking into buying some pen flares to put into my various kits. Found some Gyrojet pens, but rarely ammo for them and if I do its from the 80's or older. Was wondering if this ammo still works or if someone is making a "knock off" that will work with the gyrojet pen. Also has anyone tried...

    I'm assembling my bug out bag (I'm a little inexperienced, so my apologies), and I need some outside input on what I do or don't need, and what I still need to add. So here's what I've currently got. Also, if it helps, I'm in the Semi Arid and mountainous environment of Northern Arizona. And I...

    I have seen the question posted concerning BOBs for families or for individuals, but usually the family size is 2-4. I have a fmaily of 6, and would like to hear from some other preppers with large families (or small, I am open to anyone's opinion) on how they prepare their BOBs. I guess in...

    Earlier this week my Daughter handed me her shower cap and said it made her head too hot and I had an idea. The next night I went outside with the cap on under a beanie and found the heat that was radiated was not lost and my head and body stayed warmer even with only a light jacket on. So I...

    I recently purchased a Medium LC-1 olivedrab ALICE pack. I was drawn to this bag for its utilitariansim and durability. I have had fun with the bag so far, and it will primarily be a go bag, but I plan on using it for camping and hunting as well. I've seen alot of mods out there improving upon...

    anyone have plans for how/if they'll scrounge items when bugging out? I was listing items for a bug out kit and thought a tote bag might be a good item--or one of those very light wt. bags you take to the store so you don't have to use the store's plastic bags. Seems like in certain...

    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...

    Good afternoon all, I hope you are all doing well. If you categorized the contents of your BOB, GHB, 72hr pack or what have you into separate, well, categories, what would be the result? The main reasoning behind this is to be able to focus on a particular category to determine what/what not to...

    I'm newly into the whole survival thing, and figured with my day off I would start planning my BOB. So in my research, I've seen many references about what kind of pants to have. Many sites say not to pack jeans for pants... usually because cargo/BDU are better for all the pockets. Is there...

    I'm looking for some prepper products that I've never seen or heard of before. I feel like disaster preparedness products as well as all other survival products have been getting repetitive. If you guys could help me find some new and awesome prepper products I would really appreciate it. I...

    Are alice packs comfortable for backpacking? I have read that they were comfy and that they were the worst thing on the planet. Also for 5 day or less trips which would be better, medium or large?
