Bug Out Gear for Preppers

  1. 1. Bug Out Shelter
  2. 2. Bug Out Bag Items The climate, season, number of people in your family, etc. will all have an impact on what type of items we need in our bug-out bags. Make sure you take these into consideration when building your go bag. Military surplus stores make a great place to get a lot of these items. I’d suggest swinging by one in your area and checking it out. They sometimes have great deals on gear that’s hardly been used. For more information head over to:
  3. 3. Emergency Survival Kit List If you live in an urban environment, choosing a backpack that does not appear tactical can be an advantage. Being able to look like any other person on the street will make you less of a target if you are trying to evacuate a city (or other populated area) on foot. This grey man approach is often the preferred theory for people in cities and those that may be caught in a populated area. For those of you that live in a rural environment, a tactical pack may serve you better. These backpacks or often designed to effectively carry large amounts of equipment in a compact package. Camouflage patterns will also allow you to blend into your surroundings better. For more information head over to:
  4. 4. The Survival Axe If you’re worried about size and weight, and you’re not planning on chopping down full-size trees, then the hatchet probably fits what you’re looking for in an axe. Hatchets are uniquely suited to chopping small dead standing trees, limbing trees and preparing a fire. They also make splitting wood much easier than if you were stuck batoning with a survival knife. The main disadvantage is that you cannot easily chop down large trees or process large logs for a fire. If you’re building a bug out bag for a wooded environment then I would strongly consider the hatchet as your axe of choice. For more information visit us now!
  5. 5. Cheap Survival Food MREs are a great choice for an all in one meal that can be prepared with no outside equipment. If you decide to go with MREs you can strip them down and take out anything that you will not need. Take the food out of the boxes, remove the heaters (you could reuse them as a makeshift warmer if you live in a cold environment), get rid of the extra spoons, etc. For more information head over to:
  6. 6. How to Survive a Nuclear Bomb Figuring out how to survive a nuclear attack begins with understanding what happens during the attack. This scenario assumes the worst case scenario, you’re in a high population city of strategic importance, stuck out in the open and you don’t have anything other than what you’re carrying. Hopefully, if a nuclear attack ever did occur, you’d be in a much better position than that. In the event of a nuclear war, many more nukes would be detonating in other large cities. This would significantly increase the amount of nuclear fallout experienced across the nation. For more information head over to:
  7. 7. Bushcraft Have you ever looked at a wild plant or bush, and wondered if you could eat it? For the edibile plantsBushcrafter, foraging is very important element to survival. All hunters and fisherman know that if it was easy, they would not call it hunting and fishing, they would call it catching. Being able to identify and eat plants without getting sick can make the difference between surviving and not surviving. For more information head over to:
  8. 8. When Should You Bug Out? I would argue that you should bug in under most circumstances. If you currently live in an area that will force you to bug out immediately after a collapse, you should move NOW. I understand that it is not always possible for any number of reasons. However, if you are serious about preparedness you should do everything in your power to get yourself out of that situation. You have already met the conditions for bugging out!

  9. 9. SHTF Eventually everything will be gone if you wait long enough, but if you look at actual events such as a major hurricane here in the USA, the Greece financial meltdown, the collapse of USSR, the war in Syria, the situation in Venezuela, or any poor country that has been hit by a major disaster you’ll quickly see a pattern of items that disappear at the very beginning of a panic buying rush.

  10. 10. Family Emergency Plan
  11. 11. 72 Hour Kit The items on your list should be able to get you through the first 72 hours of an emergency. Some people even go so far as to call this a 72-hour bag. Try to include items that will allow you to survive past the 72-hour mark. Sustainability and reusability are important if we need to bug out. As an example, putting 72 hours of water in your bag may seem like a good idea, but putting just two or three liters of water in your bag and adding a portable water filter will last you much longer.

  12. 12. SHTF Vehicle Fuel is going to be in short supply following any kind of collapse. It doesn’t matter what the event was. Once this occurs, you’re going to have to find some form of transportation that doesn’t rely on gas or diesel. The simple fact that a bicycle doesn’t need fuel makes it the best SHTF vehicle. Every prepper should have some kind of bike. Even if you plan on bugging-in, there could be any number of reasons why you would end up bugging-out either immediately or sometime following the event.

  14. 14. Survival Camp Which Bug Out Bag backpack is best? Choosing the right bug out bag backpack is the important first piece of equipment you’ll need to purchase when building your kit. Should you choose a backpack, duffel bag, or backpacking style bag? What qualities should be considered when picking one? Are any features that are particularly important?

  15. 15. Urban Survival How much space do you need in your Bug Out Bag backpack? This is determined by: How many people are you carrying survival supplies for? Will you be bugging out by yourself or with a family in tow? Do you plan on packing your Bug Out Bag with everything and the kitchen sink or just the bare essentials? The more you pack, the larger volume bag you will need and the more mass you will have to carry on your back. It is one of the most important trade-offs you will have to consider.

  16. 16. Roadside Emergency Kit In the event of an emergency, natural or otherwise, it is important to make sure that your family's basic needs are being met and that they are safe. The most effective way of to do this is to have a plan in place. It's very easy to panic during an emergency; being mentally and physically prepared may help to minimize that feeling of panic and enable you to keep your family calm, cool, collected, and most importantly, safe.
