Basic Bug Out Kit

Sometimes, the only way to survive a disaster is to get as far away from it as possible. In many cases, the amount of notice you might get that you have to head for the hills – i.e. bug out – will be minimal. In this case, it’s vitally important to have a bug out bag ready and waiting, loaded with everything you need to sustain yourself. We recommend one bug out bag per person, the contents of which should last for a minimum of 72 hours.

Bug Out

There’s no guarantee you’ll get to remain with your car in the event of a disaster, so you need to prepare by having an easily accessible bug out bag.

Guardian Deluxe Survival Kit

This kit contains everything you need to survive for 72 hours, including food, water, emergency lighting and communications. The best part is that it’s all packaged within a rugged hiker’s backpack so you can throw it on your shoulders and go.

Water

It’s unlikely you’ll be able to carry enough water on your person to last longer than 72 hours – it’s just too heavy. You’ll need a portable method of water purification:

Sport Berkey Water Bottle

This is a water bottle with one of Berkey’s legendary water filters built in. Simply pour water into the bottle and drink from the nozzle, which gives you clean and filtered water instantly.

Potable Aqua

– 50 Water purification tablets that will render 25 quarts of water safe to drink. It will be hard to carry the necessary amount of water you need to survive for days, but luckily, Potable Aqua tablets weigh just a few ounces and can be used to augment the Berkey bottle above.

Warmth

You might have to spend the night outdoors, and if so, you’ll need to avoid hypothermia:

Emergency Mylar Sleeping Bag

Mylar sleeping bags are designed to reflect and retain up to 90 percent of your body heat, meaning you’ll stay warm even if it’s freezing cold.

16 Hour Body Warmers

These chemically activated heating pads are great for when you bed down at night; stick one of these inside the mylar sleeping bag above, climb in, and stay toasty warm.

You’ll need three of these.

 

Light

We recommend two hand crank lights per person, mainly because one could fail, get lost, or break. Having no light while bugging out is frightening and dangerous:

Dynamo 3 LED Flashlight - 2 Pack

These lights provide up to two hours of ultra bright LED lighting with just 60 seconds of hand cranking, and never need batteries – perfect for a power failure.

Communications

Monitoring the emerging situation is incredibly important to help you decide where you should bug out to – and where you should not bug out to. You need a reliable, portable, and powerful method of communication:

Kaito KA500 Voyager hand Crank Radio

This little wonder is a shortwave radio with built in NOAA weather alert. It never needs batteries, and is powered via solar power or hand crank. The best part is, it can also charge your cell phone.
