Bug-Out Bag Essentials

Bug-Out Bag #4

Posted in Bug Out Bags, GEAR By

A bug-out bag is a portable, carefully-curated collection of items necessary to effectively evacuate and survive for at least 72 hours during an emergency. Each week we’ll curate a new bug-out bag as a guide for those looking to build their own bug-out kit. This week’s selection is versatile enough to accommodate bugging-out in a rural or suburban setting, with an emphasis on tools, weapons, and camping.
