When it comes to putting together the perfect bug out bag there are a lot of things we need to consider. Our geography, Our skills, and our fitness level just to name a few.

While some of the bug out supplies you have will be different than the next persons, the core prepping supplies in a bug out bag are the same.

This week Ryan and I went expanded on the article I wrote at Survivalist Prepper about The Most Important Bug Out Bag Supplies. As a matter of face, we went into so much detail we had to split this into 2 podcasts.

We started off the show this week talking about the basics of having a bug out bag before we even got into the supplies we put in them. For some of us this is fairly basic information, but for the new prepper it’s critical to get started on the right foot.

We talked about what exactly a bug out bag is, some other names they go by such as go bags, INCH bags and 72 Hour Bags. We also covered why it’s important to have a bug out bag regardless whether a large scale disaster happens or not.

We also covered some other important considerations for bugging out such as knowing where you are going. Episode 16 was a great show where we talked about getting to your bug out location.

We started off the supplies portion of the show talking about the bag itself. While it doesn’t need to be the most expensive bag you can find, it does need to be reliable and comfortable.

After that we covered food in out bags, water considerations, first aid supplies, and self defense. and next week we will cover the other 5 areas we need to have covered in our bug out bags.

These areas are…

  • Clothing
  • Navigation
  • Communications
  • Shelter
  • Multi Purpose and Miscellaneous Items
