A Bug Out Bag is basically a huge Survival Kit, which contains all the items you would need to survive a catastrophe or natural disaster. For those who are new to the survivalist way, compiling the items to create your Bug Out Bag may seem like a daunting task. We intend to give you the basics; the essentials you will need to survive the zombie apocalypse. By doing so, we intend to make sure you, the zombie survivalist, is in a much better position than others who find themselves in the land of the walking dead.
Experts say that your Bug Out Bag (also known as a BOB) should contain enough essentials to allow you to survive at least 72 hours. Obviously the ‘experts’ are not aware of the coming z-pocalypse, as many Survivalist pack their BOBs to sustain them for much longer than that. Of course, the amount you can carry is limited to however much you can carry on your back. A 3 day target is a good place to start.
Keep in mind that the BOB may not be necessary immediately in a zombie crisis, depending on your situation. You may need to ride out a few days or even weeks in your home, which should contain a reserve of freeze dried foods and ER bars (or Emergency Rations).
The list below is a suggestion of needs that may not go beyond to meet your personal specs. This list is a starting point. Please remember that your location and the elements they bring (elevation, how many to your party, and anything else specific to your situation) should be considered when creating your personalized Bug Out Bag.
