A Bug Out Bag (BOB), also known as a Get Out Of Dodge (GOOD) Bag, or a 72-Hour Bag is a backpack filled with the tools and essentials you need to survive for a minimum of 3 days. You can find these online, but I highly recommend building your own, that way you are familiar with the gear you pack, the layout of your bag, and arguably the most important: your weapons.

Choosing Your GearEdit

First things first, the bag. You should find a bag that can adjust tightly to prevent excess bouncing while running or hiking, but still be a suitable size to fit on your back and all of your gear in it. If you live in an area with woods nearby, you may wish to look for camoflauge bags to help with hiding. Your bag should be durable, fit comfortably, and have enough space to fit all of your supplies plus a little extra room.

Your weapons. This one is all personal preference, I recommend a firearm that is concealable and within reach, and a survival knife of your choice. I won't go into the details but weigh your firearm of choice against others based on power, accuracy, ammo capacity, and reliability. Likewise, compare your melee weapon or survival knife to other potentials, keeping in mind their weight, reach, durability, and grip.

Contents of a Bug Out BagEdit

While you are free to add anything you want to the bag, the following are a list of basics to give you an idea of what to pack:

  • Flashlight
  • Waterproof Matches
  • First Aid Kit
  • Sewing Kit
  • Survival Knife
  • A Radio
  • Spare Batteries
  • Blankets or Sleeping Bags
  • Rope
  • Duct Tape
  • Food and Water
  • Can Opener

These are just a few of the basics you may wish to pack, keep in mind if you or someone in your group needs special medications or a spare pair of glasses, to pack those.
