A simple first aid kit will suffice, and make sure it contains: sterile bandages, butterfly bandages, gauze pads, adhesive tape, scissors, tweezers, needle, antiseptic lotion and wipes, safety pins, aspirin, antibiotic cream, antacid.
A sharp blade or multi-tool will become very useful and is an excellent tool for a variety of tasks. Additional spare clothing, a poncho, waterproofs, gloves, hats, are all a good idea for when you have to dry out your first set of clothes. A flint for sparking a fire, matches and several lighters as backup are absolutely essential for staying warm and preparing food. A torch, wind up camping light, small LED bike lights are all going to come in handy should you need to access a dark area or move around at night. Will fix most problems – from rips in clothing to binding two different items together. Useful for listening for updates on the disaster and for helping you to avoid moving in the wrong direction. These are not essential but will come in useful if you have the space: your personal identification, any personal items such as prescription medication or feminine supplies, soap, plastic bags, toothbrush and toothpaste, toilet paper, sewing kit, rope or para cord, insect repellent, sunscreen, pen and paper. Check out these two awesome examples of bug-out bags, the first is a large interactive image from the dudes at UnCrate and you can click on different parts of it to buy the item online – fantastic!
The second is a really extensive bug-out bag from YouTube user Rodster and it contains all the equipment required for surviving a disaster in the UK.
If you have heard about the bug out bag and you are thinking about making your own, then you might be a little mind boggled as to what you might need in it.
A person can last 72 hours without water but the signs of dehydration start to show after only a few hours.
Once you have the basic of water covered you need to ensure that you have something to carry it around in. People can survive up to a month without food but that doesn’t mean that it won’t affect your body or your mind. If you know that the area surrounding you is vast then a map could be a really handy thing to have, especially if you will be trekking through woodland or other areas that are hard to navigate. When it gets dark you are going to need some kind of light source, so that you don’t have to stop everything you are doing. Everybody will want different things for their bug out bags but there are some items that should be considered must haves. The idea behind a bug out bag is to simply have one bag that will be capable of handling any emergency. Before deciding what items need to be in your bug out bag, you need to determine your strategy.
Avoidance: You gather your loved ones, grab your supplies, and disappear into an unpopulated area. There are hundreds of checklists available online, but most of the checklists were prepared by survivalists who have extensive knowledge about how to survive in the field. The US Army Survival Manual is available at almost every bookstore and surplus shop in the country.
Shelter and clothing: This is another time when the person packing the bag needs to realize that they need to pack the bag to make the weakest person comfortable. Maps and compass: Assume a worst case scenario and that you will not be able to use Google maps. Hygiene: While not technically survival related, personal hygiene items are small and add a huge amount of comfort.
Bug out bags for kids: Children that are old enough to carry their own bag should be encouraged to do so, just in case they get separated.
If the child is old enough to read, it would be wise to include a note in the bag explaining the four things above again.
The Department of Defense conducted a study that determined many medicines in pill form retain 90% of their potency after the expiration date. The only known instance of toxicity resulting from expired meds was pre-1963 in tetracycline. Medicines that are biological in nature such as insulin or an EpiPen do actually expire according to the studies. Barter material: Many people recommend purchasing gold or silver coins for the purpose of trading in a survival scenario. Firearms: If you choose to have a firearm in your bag, remember to pack cleaning equipment and lubricant. The next security check to be completed is taking the bag outside at night and shining a flashlight at it. The inciting event: In most cases, you will have some warning prior to the need to bug out. The key element in surviving a disaster is not what equipment you have, it’s developing the ability to see what things could be instead of what they are.
In survival situations it is extremely important to commit yourself to your own survival and to completing whatever mission you have assigned yourself. Note that this is a basic list of essentials and these items are enough for one person only and rather than just adding more items for more people thus weighing down the bag, you should be encouraging friends and family to be creating their own bug-out bags (after all, it is unlikely that you will all be together and able to evacuate as a group and once disaster strikes you’ll probably be focussing on meeting up with your group, but more on that later). A good knife is essential as a tool and if you do pack one, then consider a small knife sharpener to go with it.
Obviously any fire must be very carefully constructed to avoid attracting unwanted attention.

There’ll be no way to just look at the maps on your phone, so get a map of your local area so that you can plan your evacuation route. Can be used to hold a gauze in place over a wound and only in desperate circumstances it can be used to directly patch up severe wounds until proper medical attention can be given.

There are hundreds of lists online about what you need to put into your bug out bag but the top six items can be found right here. This means that you need to stay well hydrated and that should be on the top of your priority list. It would be a waste of a water purification tablet to only have one small drink and then leave the rest of the water, so ensure that you have something that can collect a decent amount of water for transportation too. If you are packing a bug out bag then you need to ensure at least 72 hours’ worth of food and the tools you will need to get more food once that has run out. You might think that the map on your phone will suffice but once your phone battery is dead, you’ll be thankful that you went old school. These six items should always find their way into your bug out bag because without them you will have trouble with not only being comfortable but surviving too. If a natural or man-made disaster strikes, it would be handy to have the supplies required for survival already packed and ready to go, but the process of packing a bug out bag can be a little intimidating. The bag will help keep you alive in situations ranging from a flash flood all the way up to a total breakdown of society. The worst possible scenario is a complete breakdown of society locally (large scale riots), regionally (extreme weather), or nationally (a pandemic). When reviewing the checklists, understand that they are a guide to help you prepare your bag, not a shopping list. Every kit needs emergency water supplies, tablets for purifying water, and bladders for storing more water when it is available. While supplementing what is in your bug out bag should be a priority, there will be times when you will only have the food in your bag.
Waterproof matches, lighters, flares, and dry material to burn should be sealed in a plastic bag. Most people don’t wear combat boots every day, but access to quality outdoor footwear is important.
You don’t necessarily need a Gerber, but you need a high quality knife and sharpening stone. Shelter and clothing items (tents, ponchos, gloves, jackets, etc.) need to be considered carefully. The contents of the bag should be fairly simple: seven easy to open food pouches that require no preparation (protein bars), seven water pouches or bottles, an age-appropriate cutting instrument, a whistle, a blanket, and a small first aid kit. The contents will sustain a family of four for one month without supplementing the contents. The reason for allowing the child to move after two days relates to the most likely reason the separation occurred in the first place.
It also means that if a bag is lost or destroyed, the other bags will contain food and water. A large military surplus ammo can in your vehicle that is filled with emergency supplies can greatly increase the amount of food, water, and equipment that is available.
Take a look at a typical diaper bag and you quickly realize that Infants require special attention because they cannot eat the same food as other party members and they require other items that wouldn’t normally make it into a bug out bag. With the price of precious metals likely to skyrocketing during a large-scale emergency, it would probably be best if you just remember to take your jewelry.
The type of firearm you select should match the terrain you will be operating in and the strategy you would like to adopt. It is worth the ten minutes in most cases to fill a trash bag with all of the food, drinks, and medicine in the house. The easiest way to do this is to grab an item at random and think of as many uses for it as possible.
Without a mission, people often fall victim to apathy and complacency which often leads to their death.
An impressive 4,200 cubic inches of space (5,600 when expanded) offers more than enough room for hydration, electronics, and emergency supplies, while the internal frame and padded shoulder harness make it a cinch to schlepp.
You should be able to competently use all of the items in the bag and it should provide enough equipment for you to survive the first 72 hours of a disaster.
Each bug out bag is different, and you will definitely put items of personal value in there too when the time comes. The items for this bag are considered for an individual living in a temperate (non-extreme) climate, so you may want to adjust a few things to suit your climate conditions. We were going to suggest also getting some walkie talkies but given the short battery life, the fact that they come in packs of two, and amount of chatter that will be on these frequencies during a disaster it’s best to just stick with a wind up radio.
Not only should you pack drinking water but you should also pack water purification tablets to ensure that you have a long and plentiful supply of water.
If you put nothing else tool wise into your bug out bag then ensure that one tool you do pack is rope. If the most trained person dies, not only is there the personal tragedy, but now the party may not survive because they have lost their base of knowledge.
There was probably some form of immediate life-threatening danger that triggered a fight or flight response.

If you plan on adopting an avoidance strategy, in which hunting will play a major role, you should probably have a scoped rifle. If so, blacken whatever it is that could give away your position with a permanent marker or spray paint. The focus is on immediate evacuation and the bug-out bag is not to be confused with a long term survival kit. It goes without saying that you’ll want to put these items in a tough, comfortable (and preferably waterproof) carry bag or backpack. Consider balancing out your food supply with energy bars, dried fruit, nuts, and if you can get a hold of them, then MRE’s are excellent.
Starting your bug out bag can be as easy as tossing enough nonperishable food, water bottles, waterproof matches, and medicine to last you a week into the backpack you have laying in the closet floor. Carry medical supplies that can fulfill the requirements of your level of knowledge of medicine.
The inclusion of a survival handbook gives the rest of your party a chance at surviving without you. A Ka-Bar or the Air Force’s survival knife are good choices and are common enough that you can even find them at Wal-Mart.
There aren’t many times when you will be wearing shorts and sandals and suddenly have the need for cold weather gear.
If the whole family is living out of one bag, items will have to be sacrificed for space and weight. If you are separated and one of the few unannounced emergencies occur, you can meet up on the road. By the time the formula you buy for your newborn goes bad, your child will be able to process real food. The author truly respects law and order and would never recommend that somebody stockpile fish antibiotics to use in an emergency. If you plan on an evacuation strategy, it would be best to have something concealable that packs a punch like a .45 pistol.
Items that you would normally throw away can become critical life saving instruments of survival.
Weight is an important factor and remember that you will be always carrying this bag and walking with it will probably be easy, but you must make sure that you can run, climb (and even fight if it comes to it) with your bug-out bag on.
Over time, you can add more items to increase your survivability and comfort during a disaster. The strategy planned and the amount of space available determines how comfortable you can be. If the child begins moving on the third day, he or she will have five days worth of food and water. As a general rule of thumb while babies are still drinking formula, they require about 25 ounces of water per day. Just remember a firearm is a tool like any other, you must pick the right tool for the job. We are unable to ship factory direct items to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or APO or FPO addresses. Re-evaluate your bug-out bag to see if you can improve it depending on weather conditions and so on. Five days spent walking twelve hours per day at two miles per hour means that your child can travel over 100 miles. Another general rule regarding your vehicle is to always keep more than half a tank of gas in it. The annoying bark that happens every time the doorbell rings is a leftover instinct from thousands of years of learned behavior.
There is hope that the now orphaned child can make contact with someone who will assist them.
However, for those readers with fish that are in desperate need of medical attention, please note you can even order the antibiotics online from a company with a lab in the US that has a pretty decent privacy policy. Make sure that you have a strong ZAP (Zombie Action Plan) so that you know what you’ll be doing when you need to use your bug-out bag for real.
The best advice about trying to navigate toward people to give a child is to find a stream and walk along the shore in the opposite direction of the current, unless it is mountainous terrain, in which case the child should follow the direction of the current. Some dogs, particularly those that maintain a pack mentality, will assist in the event of a conflict. Walking upstream in the mountains typically takes you to a higher elevation which is less populated and colder.
Following a water source like a stream or river long enough will almost always lead to people. It would be wise to pack away food for your dog to be eaten when it was unable to scavenge something for the day.
