At Living Rational we offer a large selection of Bug Out Bag Survival Kits that are available at the most competitive prices online. Our Bug Out Bags are ideal for those who are preparing for sudden and unplanned emergency scenarios which can often occur with little to no warning. Bug Out Kits are made to “grab & go” in an emergency and contain a wide range of survival gear, survival food, water pouches and other essentials that will help get you going in a disaster.
Emergencies like natural disasters usually occur with little warning and leave their victims without modern conveniences. In situations like this where evacuation is necessary, you will likely not have enough time to pack a bag. This is where being prepared for the unknown can potentially save your life.
Most Bug Out Bags contain supplies to survive for 72 hours, although you can find some survival kits designed to last longer. In general, Bug Out Bags will aid in an evacuation and are not meant for long-term survival. That makes them an ideal tool to have after a tornado, hurricane, or earthquake. They can also provide you with the equipment you need during a blackout or after a house fire. Living Rational’s Bug Out Kits include items like food and water, first aid supplies, shelter, fire-starters, communication supplies and even hygiene kits.
Contents of Bug Out Bags
Each Bug Out Bag comes with all of the supplies you need to sustain yourself in an emergency. With items like first aid kits, rain gear, food and water, you’ll have an easier time getting out of a disaster with your life, and the kits are versatile enough to work in a wide variety of scenarios. Aside from their uses during and after natural disasters, you can also take a bug out bag with you outdoors to prepare for becoming lost or stranded.
At Living Rational you are able to choose from a wide range of options depending on how prepared you want to be and how many people you will need to provide for. For example, a 5-day survival backpack is ideal for a single person or a couple for up to five days. A 4 Person Elite Survival Kit, on the other hand, is more realistic for families or larger sized groups of people in the aftermath of a disaster. Below is an outline of all the basic supplies many of our Bug Out Bags contain.
Survival Food and Water
In an emergency situation, it’s important to stay well-nourished. This will help to keep your energy levels up to complete important tasks. This is also important if your vehicle is damaged and you must walk long distances. Your Bug Out Bag will contain water pouches for immediate use, and some also include purification tablets or filtration systems.
Most bags include a number of Emergency Food Bars as well to provide you with quick and easy energy. Packs designed for a longer duration might also come with dehydrated gourmet food packages along with a portable stove to cook the meals.
Depending on how many people you’re sharing the resources with and which kit you choose, these bags will last you between 72 hours with the most basic bags and up to two weeks with the most advanced kits. While you might need to ration portions if stranded for longer than that, the food and water in your kit will save you time and energy on scavenging for resources in an emergency.
When you’re evacuating your home after a natural disaster, rescue will be at the forefront of your mind. To boost your chances of rescue, Bug Out Bags include an AM/FM radio for long-distance communication, a flashlight for signaling, and a survival whistle. You will also find fire-starting supplies, including waterproof matches, that are ideal for starting a signal fire or building a fire to cook with. If you use these contents wisely, you might find rescue before you even explore the rest of your Bug Out Bag.
Clothing, Warmth, and Shelter
The types of clothing, warmth, and shelter products you find in your bag, and how long they’ll last, will depend on which option you buy. Most bags, however, feature Survival Ponchos to keep you dry in the rain, which can also prevent illness and hypothermia. If you are an individual with advanced survival skills, these types of items can also be used to create a waterproof shelter, making them extremely versatile.
A tarp or emergency tent will protect you from the elements in times of harsh weather, and emergency blankets and sleeping bags will keep you warm at night and help you conserve heat so you’re not burning valuable calories in the cold. If you’re caught outside in a cold climate, you might also take advantage of the hand warmers that many of our Bug Out Bag Kits provide.
Survival Tools & Other Equipment
Survival tools are imperative when you haven’t found rescue. Most Bug Out Bags include a multitool or knife. Many experts agree that if they could only have one tool to use for survival, they’d choose a knife, and that’s because it becomes very useful in situations like this. For instance, you could use a knife to prepare – or even capture – food, develop other tools out of sticks and wood, start fires, or process wood for shelter.
Other types of survival tools you might find in these kits include respirator masks and safety goggles to protect yourself from contaminated particles, which is useful in a situation like a quarantine. Many kits also include at least 50 feet of rope or paracord, which can aid in shelter-building, tool-making, and even climbing over rocks and rubble safely.
Personal Hygiene and First Aid Supplies
Preparing your Bug Out Bag with hygiene and first aid products boosts your chance of getting out of the situation without falling ill. Many Bug Out Bags include items like wipes, razors, toothbrushes and toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner, and tissues. Keeping up with your personal hygiene in a situation like this not only makes you feel more comfortable, but also reduces your risk of infection.
If you or a member of your group gets injured, an emergency first aid kit should always be on-hand in a Bug Out Bag. They’re usually designed to treat non-life threatening injuries until you can receive professional outside help, and they include items like Band-Aids, gauze pads, alcohol pads, and cotton swabs for treating wounds. The types of injuries you can treat and the amount of supplies will depend on the kit you buy.
In addition to all these great survival tools, you’re likely to find a memo pad and pencil as well as a deck of playing cards for entertainment in your Bug Out Bag. While Bug Out Bags are designed to be versatile, you can always add your own extras to suit your specific needs after you purchase your kit. If you live in an area where a particular natural disaster is likely, such as an earthquake, then you might consider our earthquake survival kitsand other specialized emergency preparedness products.
