It has been a long time since I have posted a suggested list for the contents of a 72 hour kit or bug out bag.
FOOD -Three days’ supply of food minimum, (I carry more) to be determined by size and age of family and personal needs. Aquamira Tablets, 4-year shelf life, or a good quality water filter like the one made by Aquamira, Katadyn or First Need. BlastMatch, Strike Force, Sparkie or varies fire steels are all commercial manufactured fire starters that will work after having been wet. CLOTHING is an item that depends on the area in which you reside, and the time of the year.

Keep in mind that this is just a suggested list; yours will vary depending on your age, health, strength, physical conditioning, experience, skill levels and local conditions (weather).

The BOB or GMHB is a living object of constant change not a closet queen to be admired by others while on display. An important factor is the weight of your kit and your ability to get out of your vehicle, walk and carry it.

Be sure and pack warm clothes, if you have to stay outside all night it can get cold even when it seems hot during the day.

I agree that canned foods are too heavy, but the mylar pouches of tuna, SPAM and other meats are great, and far cheaper than MRE’s. I know water is heavy (8lbs per gallon) but I keep a full 1 liter bottle with my pack at all times. This is not a kit that will allow most of us to live in the back country without additional help. I bag them up in 2 cup servings, then all I have to do is add 2 cups of hot water, and be eating (right out of the bag) in just a few minutes.
