Now As I’m sure both you and I have come to realize by now, a properly prepared bug out bag can be the difference between life and death in an emergency situation.
Now while a true bug out bag list might never be complete, I was simply looking for a place to start – a foundation to build upon.
Actually, the list doesn’t really go into ammo at all, but that is something you probably want to consider carrying on your person, not in a BOB. I think the simple answer is that you can’t (in most situations) carry all of everything you could possibly need so you have to cut somewhere.
I know, I know….The last thing the World Wide Web needs is another Bug Out Bag List (well, that and pictures of adorable pets and babies), but…this is a site dedicated to bug out bags! Most of these items are self-explanatory, but we will definitely expand upon our reasoning for selecting these items in future posts.
Choosing clothing for your bug out bag is a very personalized selection as we all have different body types, tolerances and levels of fitness. Your clothes selection will obviously depend on your location, climate and the other factors listed above. At first glance, to the experienced survivalist, some of the items we’ve chosen for this category might seem excessive or even impractical. Yes, you can make a shelter out of a tarp or use a trash bag filled with leaves as a makeshift ground pad, but these are all items we think are a wise choice to include for numerous reasons.
First aid is one of those areas where there are a lot of “done for you” type products out there that just aren’t well-suited for a survival kit such as a bug out bag. We’ve found that various aspects of personal hygiene are often overlooked when compiling a bug out bag list of essentials.
Again, we’ll be sure to detail our reasoning later in another post, so stay tuned, but for now, these should fit the bill for most, if not all, bug out bags quite nicely.
Illumination, like fire sources, is something we recommend having multiple instances of as well. Without a doubt, this is a controversial topic, and (WARNING: Blanket Statement Ahead!) it’s been our experience that the Americans among us tend to embrace this category the most. If you choose not to carry a weapon, or are not allowed to do so, then we highly recommend some degree of self defense training – especially If you have a family – as they’ll be depending on you for their safety.We’ll definitely be doing more posts on this topic as time goes on, so please let us know what you would like to read more about in the comments below.
Oh, and before we forget… We make it a practice to state this disclaimer whenever we can to avoid any confusion. We’re not certified experts, but we make it our aim to provide you with the best educational information possible in which we’ve consulted numerous experts.
If you don’t learn how to use these items effectively and practice using them on a regular basis, all the bug out bags in the world probably won’t be able to help you.

A quick search in Google however will bring back numerous results, all with varying articles and suggestions. What you’ll find below are the answers from experts behind some of the biggest and best survival and prepper sites online. If you for some reason have to be separated from your pack, you don’t want to lose all your ammo too, which brings up a big dilemma. I talked about this a little in our post on Is your bug out bag going to get you killed, but it deserves more conversation because so many people pin their hopes on this one thing. The ideas expressed on this site are solely the opinions of the author(s) and do not necessarily represent the opinions of anyone else. The human body can go without water for only 72 hours, whereas it can go without food for about 3 weeks. In the preparedness community we see a lot of people eager to recommend various products, mostly off-the-shelf, dehydrated, store-bought items. The items listed below are to be strategically layered to maintain a healthy body temperature at all times. But if you check the individual products we recommend, you’ll see they’re all made compact and lightweight with the backpacker in mind. Being well-rested, both mentally and physically, is extremely important when times are rough. The topic of First Aid could easily warrant several posts, but to keep it simple for now, we have one that we do highly recommend, but of course you can always build your own too.
But the implications of forgoing any of these for an extended period of time might lead to bacterial infections and a rapid deterioration in health. These are items that didn’t necessarily fit into any of the other categories, but they’re just as important for inclusion in your bug out bag.
You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to do your own due diligence and come to your own conclusions. James gets pumped about any sport involving water, places with no cellphone coverage, and aviation. I don’t consider myself an expert, but I was extremely grateful for the compliment and humbled to be included in a list with a lot of other successful bloggers in the field of prepping below. In fact 2 weeks ago I wouldn’t have been able to tell you what a BOB was or what in the hell TEOTWAWKI stood for. I think we can both agree that if it is important enough to be listed as “the one thing” every bug out bag can’t be without, it should be in yours. I look at this as something to give me shelter and a little food, not the whole work bench of tools I could conceivably use. The author may or may not have a financial interest in any company or advertiser referenced.


Personally, we recommend a variety of non-perishable food items, some that might require water and some that don’t. At these times you’ll want to have a seasonal selection of clothes that you can swap out when necessary. Not only are they uncomfortable, but hypothermia is a real concern not to be taken lightly. The reason being, a survivalist and firearms expert friend of ours shared this piece of wisdom which has stuck with us ever since – “Where there are two, there’s one. Each item listed below has multiple uses, but they all serve the same purpose – helping you see what you’re doing or find where you’re going.
Whether you choose a handgun, a rifle, both, or just a can of pepper spray, it’s completely up to you.
Chances are some of the items will have you scratching your head, but we assure you, you want these items in your bug out bag.
And also, if you know of anyone who would like this post, please share it with your like-minded friends.
The list includes some great ideas and considerations for your own bug out bag as well as 9 other sites to investigate if you haven’t already. But through the tremendous amount of resources available online, and the awesome people who regularly blog about this niche I’m slowing learning. There are a ton of other things like this that have excellent use, but I am aiming for light in my bug out bags. Any action taken as a result of information, analysis, or advertisement on this site is ultimately the responsibility of the reader.
But as we’ve said before, “every ounce counts.” Determine the must-haves and forget the rest. But you can be sure in a bug out scenario, we’ll be well equipped to defend ourselves and hunt wild game if need be. Trying to practice what we preach, we recommend the following three tools for your bug out bag.
Furniture, Boats, Music, Food and a most recently a foray into small batch Gin brewed right at home (you've been warned).
