I kind of agree. I added to the list what I think the bag would need to be a bug out bag that would cover you if say your car broke down on the way to evacuate from the fire, flood or hurricane, etc. or as a get home bag if you broke down on the way home or had to bug out from a hotel or the office.While it can certainly be mocked by forum standards there really isn't anything wrong with it. Most of us are going to face at worst a wildfire or hurricane. Maybe a quake a bit bigger than expected.
Really all you need there is a tank of gas and some cash for when you get to a town that isn't affected. Of course some basic tools and parts in your car are a good idea as well as clothing for the climate and a bit of food that doesn't need cooked.
I think they covered that stuff. We want more, but it really would be enough for most people.
I think the 72 hour approach is a great start to get most people's ball rolling. If you make it too complicated or expensive most folks will put it off and not start at all.This is by no means an exhaustive list, but should serve as a reference as you build a more personalized list based on your needs and those of your family, as well as the specific threats or challenges you are likely to face in your part of the world
A jacket doesn’t take up much space. Neither do space blankets. Really a sleeping bag can be pretty small too now. And you can get a really light one from amazon for 20 bucks.I was actually a little surprised that they had as much water and space blankets as it did. I'm not sure I'd have that. But then I know where to find more and carry a filter.
I think one strength for this kit is mobility. It's all good and well to have jackets, sleeping bag, cook kit, etc, but I'm sure there are plenty of situations where mobility would be better than having everything. And given who it's coming from, they probably need to mobility more.
I was going to respond but after this post...I'm not sure. :OF COURSE..
