What is a bug out bag? Well, in general, they are portable emergency kits that contain everything you would need to survive for at least 72 hours while evacuating due to a natural disaster or zombie apocalypse. While we hope you will never experience either, following a few simple steps to prepare the proper items may save your live and those of loved ones.
The type of bug out bag, or 72 hour kit you build (or buy), will depend on a variety of factors, including your lifestyle, personal preferences and budget.
Avid hikers, campers, survivalists and bushcraft professionals should consider carrying a fully equipped, expert level bag. Weekend warriors who enjoy an outing every now and again will likely find value in an enthusiast level bag, while those that enjoy paved roads and skycrapers should put some thought into a beginner level bag, for those just-in-case occasions.
Still not sure where your bug out bag heart lies? Don’t worry, our posts will help you work your way through the essentials of each and provide information and reviews to help you decide whether you want to survive, or thrive!.
