The instruction manual can be taken out, once the skills are learned. Shave a few ounces off afterwards. More room for other suppliesThe BOB.....is based on human needs....not the type of disaster........
Here is what is should have sort of by category....
1. Water and water treatment
2. Medical / Fist AId Supplies
3. Fire and heat
7. Food/ food preparation
8 Cutting instruments
9. An instruction manual
10. Communication equipment
All of them, if tailored to your area.What kind of disaster scenarios is a bug out bag or survival kit good for?
Providing your location would help people provide information specific to possible scenarios for you.I've never experienced any kind of disaster scenarios where I live so not sure what to tailor my kit for. I guess the house catching fire would be more likely as anything. In which case it would be better to store you survival kit in the car.
I've seen a lot of youtube videos about what people are putting in the kits, it is interesting to watch. But mainly I was just curious about what kind of disaster scenarios we could be faced with.
