Tips on What to Look for in a Bug out Bag
There are a number of critical features a bug out bag needs to have to be considered, keeping in mind that it must be capable of carrying, safely, everything you need to keep you alive for 72 hours.
- Sturdy – strong enough to keep your stuff in and not tear if you’re trekking through bush or in a dilapidated urban area.
- Comfortable – You’ll be carrying it for 72 hours and it’ll be full of supplies to keep you alive. It’ll be heavy so make sure its got a waist sash belt to distribute some of the weight of your shoulders and onto your waist.
- Flexible – have the right mix of pockets, zippers, and compartments to both store what you need it to but also to provide fast and easy access to your most critical supplies.
