The Best Gear for Your Bug-Out Bag
In the event of a wildfire, a hurricane, a flood, or any number of other emergencies, it’s a good idea to have a fully stocked bag of emergency gear (often called a “ready bag,” “go bag,” or “bug-out bag”). This way, you and your family can quickly evacuate to a shelter or other secure location armed with basic survival supplies and tools.
For this guide we focused on gear that could be more easily carried in a backpack, emphasizing lightness and portability wherever possible. For sheltering in place, we have a separate guide to the best emergency preparedness supplies to help you manage at home for a period of time following a disaster that knocks out utility services or cuts off outside resources to your area. We hope both of our guides will help you be prepared with reliable and versatile tools that can help you manage whatever emergency you may face.
