Bug Out Bag Thread
Note: This post is a Work in Progress.

Things to keep in your "Bug Out Bag" or emergency backpack.

1. The backpack.

For most people, a medium sized urban backpack is ideal. You want it to be big enough to carry a decent amount of items and durable enough to withstand heavy use.

I recommend brands like Dakine, Jansport, 511 Tactical and Red Rock.

Editor's Pick: Dakine Mission Backpack

2. Medication

Keep some of your medications ready to go in your bug out bag.

3. Lighter

I keep two lighters in my bug out bags, a BIC and a Zippo.

5-Pack BIC lighters

Classic Zippo

4. Small amount of food

I found sealed packets of Starkist Tuna and Tuna Salads to be inexpensive and lightweight. I also keep a couple PowerBars ready.

5. Water

6. Flashlight

I like tactical flashlights from companies like Thorfire J5 and Coast.

7. Knife

A good knife is an essential part of any Bug Out Bag. You may want a Swiss Army Knife or a modern Tactical Knife.

8. Clothes

At minimum socks, t-shirt, sweatshirt or jacket.
