Bug Out Bag

Many survivalists and preppers have several "tiers" of emergency equipment. Each is catered to specific situations and scale upwards depending on severity of events. Some have an EDC, (Every Day Carry), bag, which is acceptable for 3-4 days of survival, getting home and most daily rituals. Others have a BoB, (Bug Out Bag), which would keep them comfortable for well north of a week. Then there are the INCH bags, (I'm Never Coming Home), which are typically reserved for everything going to hell and one is forced to become a refugee. (Not an appetizing prospect. Especially in the face of winter.)

The BOB featured here is an extra large messenger style pack, with a plastic liner sewn into the main ruck, giving it decent of water resistance. It has back-pack straps that zip out of a rear pocket, a shoulder strap, and a handle, giving one three ways to carry it. When selecting your BOB buy rugged, and don't be afraid to shell out north of $120.00 for a good quality one. The bag pictured is a high end diaper-bag.

This Bug Out Bag has a respectable first aid kit, which you can review HERE.

To keep things organized, accessible, and firmly packed, the various related components are sealed in Reynolds and Zip-Lock Vacuum bags. This helps make the most of ruck space, and adds a second water barrier. The Zip-Lock bags are reliable, but the Reynolds bags are superior options, as the seals on the Zip-lock bags tend to slightly air out over time.
