Outfitting a Survival Back Pack (Bug out Bag)
A Bug out bag is essentially a large survival system containing all the things you would likely will need to live after a catastrophe. A Bug Out Bag will let you grab the things you need instantly and evacuate should an emergency transpire.
The items listed below can be found at the new Apocalypse Survival School Store.
Most experts recommend that a person’s BOB need to contain enough resources to last for at least seventy two hrs. Given that most major catastrophes are able to disrupt services and regular life for more than Seventy two hours, we believe this is a good plan to have a Bag that will permit a person to live for an long amount of time.
Make sure that your Bag is built to meet your needs. Some individuals may require items that aren’t listed on this list. Bear in mind that these are basically some general guidelines designed to help you get your bag together. Whenever putting your backpack together think about any special needs or products that you and your family may require.
Here we focus on what really should be in nearly all Bug Out Bags, together with a few items which will hold up when it really matters
As far as a proven and superior made survival pack or bug out bag, there are many on the market. We recommend not skimping on the quality of a bug out bag and that is why we have selected the Tactical Assault Gear Sentinel Pack Coyote Tan 811930, which is in use by many military professionals and features 1000 Cordura nylon and lined with 440 weight pack cloth. This pack was specifically made for sustained field operations when a “RUCK” is not needed, or is just too large.
