Best Bug Out Bags for SHTF Survival
If you are just getting started assembling your survival gear, you will need a good Bug out Bag. Be it from a snowstorm, tornado hurricane or riot, this is something that can help you survive for three or more days until the situation is over.
Inside this bag you will need to keep food, water, medicine, survival gear, clothing and other items to keep you going.
Keep your Bug Out Bag in an accessible location so it can easily be thrown into a vehicle, or grabbed to take with you on foot if the situation arises. This is something each member of the family should have as well to provide enough food and water in an emergency.
You can assemble your own pack or buy a survival pack pre made ready to go.
I prefer to put my own together but have found this Ready America Grab “N Go Deluxe 4 Person Backpack to be a good 72 hour pack for a family of four with much of the work already done for you.
Want to build your own? I found the Maxpedition Vulture-II Backpack to be absolutely top quality. This pack will hang in there with you when times get tough.
Unlike some of the cheaper backpacks on the market the build quality of Maxpedition is top notch. This pack has enough pockets to stash any gear you need. The built in water bladder compartment keeps your water conveniently near and accessible. My preference if for a dark backpack that blends in. When SHTF last thing you need is to stick out.
If you have large dogs, get them a small backpack so they can carry their own food and water, like the ABO Gear Aussie Dog Backpack so even your four legged friends can help with survival duty.
