Bug out Bag Necessities

With the turmoil in the world we hope we never have to use one of these but it is better to have something you don’t need than need something you don’t have. If you haven’t gotten yours ready yet check ours out for ideas!

  1. Level III Body Armor with UTG Tactical Vest w/Right Handed Quick-draw Holster
  2. Molle Level III Insertion Backpack capable of carrying most of the items you see in the graphic above.
  3. 100′ Military Paracord – Can be used to make snares, haul gear, bind hands and much more.

  5. 3600 Calorie Packs – Split in 9 pieces to provide quick nutrition.
  6. 100′ Black Duct Tape – The absolute must have for any BOB because it will provide several different uses.

  14. Maglite 4D Cell Flashlight – Very intense beam with long life and can be used as a weapon if need be.
  15. U.S. Army Issued KaBar Knife – When you need to get that quiet kill or when you need to cut some chord, it will work great for either.

  21. 2 Person Tent – Always have shelter that can be sealed with traveling across the wilderness.
  22. 100 sq ft Desert Camouflage – This is a creation of mine where I purchased different types of Desert Camo (you should buy camo that fits your region, mine is a desert) and then I sewed these camouflages together to create a more blending design. You can use this as a ghillie suit when sniping or you can cover your vehicle and shelter with it.
  23. 4oz Police Magnum OC Spray – When you have a threat coming at you and you’re own rules of engagement call for suppression versus lethal force, this will get the job done.

  3. Food – Canned Goods, Non-perishables and Etc.

Now there are several items I didn’t list but those are firearms I don’t feel comfortable listing online but this is the basic gist of what you should have in your Bug Out Bag (BOB) but every region is different and so is every situation. We believe this BOB covers all the basics and if you don’t have any of these items you can purchase the through our Survival Gear Link.
