BOB suggestions

Post  Nugget on Wed Apr 18, 2012 5:01 pm

I want to get a bug out bag together, but I have no idea where to start.
Any suggestions on bags, equipment, etc.?

Also, post the contents of your bob.

Some good things to have in a BoB would be food/water for three days, water purification tabs, metal canteen, lighter, waterproof matches, flint and striker, multitool, full tang fixed blade, a folding shovel and saw, spare change of clothes, extra socks, good amount of para cord, water proof tarp, a poncho, some basic fishing equipment, and a fire arm of some sort with sufficient amount of ammunition for said firearm. This should at least keep you alive for the recommended bug out three day period while shit settles down and depending on your level of outdoor savvy much much longer. You don't necessarily need everything here and everything you might need isn't necessarily here but it should be a decent start.

Please, guys, no Ramen noodles for your MREs. The damn things have no nutritional value, nor protein or even significant amounts of carbohydrates. The amount of space and weight they take up versus what they offer is one of the worst ratios in the food world.

You'd do much better vacuum sealing GOOD beef jerky. I suggest finding a friend who hunts (assuming you don't hunt) and buying a good couple pounds of well made beef or deer or even moose jerky off him. Vacuum seal it up. Carry some boullion cubes for soup flavoring, and make soup out of it and any edible plant material you can find. Yeah, it's pretty chewy and not the best, but it gives you lots of protein and can also just be eaten plain while you hike.

Make sure not to seal it all in one bag, or else you'll open it up and start eating just to find out it went bad a few days later. Seal in one meal at a time so it stays fresh.


Also, pack up some multivitamin packets. Not the little gummy Fred Flintstone things from Wal-Mart, but legitimate multivitamins for Sports and athletes. Take one packet a week. It'll supplement what you don't get and they take up essentially no space or weight and will prevent all sorts of problems.

BUT THEY'RE SO FUCKING GOOD.

Good post anyway.

I would also suggest, if it hasn't been suggested before, a magnesium fire starting tool. and a couple of bic lighters last pretty long, are water proof, and take up very little space too. you're probably better off packing both, using the fire starting tool when the lighters are empty. ofc the lighters can also still be used to start fires using just the flint.
