There are a lot of good articles with lists and other information out there to help you figure out what you should put in your bugout bag or in your other gear. I’ve written a couple myself, including (these will open in another page/tab so you can read them without losing this page.
After thinking about it, I thought I should just make a quick list of some of the things that you may not have considered for your bug out bag gear. Just keep in mind that this doesn’t mean you should run out and buy all this stuff to put in your bag. If you can’t carry the thing, it isn’t gonna help you much and could make things worse. Always keep your stuff as light and small as possible but make sure you don’t have a single point of failure (They called this a SPOF in Warrant Officer school). You should have backups for every major thing you want to do (make a fire, purify water, etc) in case you lose or break something and varied ways to do something in case the first way doesn’t work. Remember, it doesn’t help to have 10 lighters as backup if your environment and skill level won’t let you start a fire with a lighter.
