In this video I show and talk about my EDC bug out bag loadout. I am not fully versed in things like this so if you have any suggestions, let me know. I enjoy learning from my subscribers as mush as I enjoy sharing the knowledge I have.

  2. great video am looking at adding a knife to my bag but no clue which one looking for a good all rounder any ideas guys ?

  3. Great video, family, is most important. Where would you go? Water is very important, a way to purify said water. I have a knife straw for each member of my family. My car has sleeping bivys. Fire starter kit, snacks especially for kids. I speak as a former Guardsmen who has deployed after three Northridge quake and hurricane Katrina. Bottom line you'll never have the perfect bag however you've already started thinking about it. Keep it up.

  4. 1st time to your channel. My thoughts: 1. Know your mission (going from pt a to pt b, know the routes). 2. Little food and way of procuring water and purifying. Water key? 3. 1st aid know how to use your gear. 4. Knowledge is usually more important that gear. 5. Contractor crayon

  5. Bug spray, a good knife, small foldable saw and emergency blankets (Mylar type). Maybe some iodine pills in your first aid kit just in case. Can’t go wrong with a solar powered battery bank to keep those radios/headlamps charged.

  6. Water filtration (Sawyer mini), container of some kind (Sawyer bottle), fire starting tools/materials, shelter of some kind (tarp/heavy mil bag, etc.), solar Charger for phones and radios, rite in the rain pad and pen, folding saw (I have the SOG, it’s pretty compact), emergency food bars (check Amazon). You have a great starting bag here though. 👍🏻

  7. Some considerations might include Bic lighters, gloves, space blanket, beanie/cap, extra batteries/power pack, rain poncho, tarp, water filter, protein/ granola bars, toiletry bag, a couple of bottles of water and most importantly duct tape. Great video! Really enjoy your content.

  8. Bear spray (for animals) and bug repellant are also good to have. Especially, if you plan on being out in the woods.

  9. Bag is pretty good as far as essentials go.

    Some good things to add would be:
    A laminated map of your local areas or areas you plan on being in.
    Map markers.
    A ham radio or scanner. Recommend the Uniden HomePatrol, as you don't need to program frequencies. It's a good tool to have in general, as it can provide valuable info.
    A poncho.
    Spare batteries.
    Packable toilet paper or wet wipes.
    A LifeStraw or water purification tabs.
    Prescription medicine.
    Individual dose pain and allergy medicine.

    This is just some basic stuff that isn't going to crazy, but will be useful in a pinch.
    Hope it helps!

  10. I’d suggest an actual Gerber or Leatherman multi tool, a solar charger for cell phones, waterproof matches in a watertight container, extra batteries for flashlights and walkie talkies, emergency blanket, water filtration system or straw, hand sanitizer wipes.

  11. Fire, Fire, Fire….Take some cotton balls and saturate them with vasoline..Stick them in a empty pill bottle..One spark from a fire rod will ignite the cotton ball and it will burn for at least 3 to 5 minutes..Sure fire [no pun intended] way to start a fire even in poor conditions.I also would add a poncho and a couple 5mill construction type trash bags.The trash bags can be used for a ton of things like holding water, use as another poncho or to weather proof a small shelter to keep dry.Good start and keep up the work ..Peace

  12. Some of these are specialty items . It's up to you to figure out what brand or which is beneficial to you. Also what are you bugging out to too . Are we talking hours , days or weeks . This is key to figuring out what your needs are . If we are talking hours then your gonna want to be fast and light . Your not gonna need a lot of special items to walk 12 hours home vs days if walking .

    Solar Charger you def need .
    I would have 1 solid fixed blade , folder & Multi tool . Small Hatchet could be another option . Specialty med knife like a Havalon if your well versed in Medical. Also small knife sharpener .
    I would for sure get Bic Lighter , Ferro Rod and Magnesium. They are so light its worth having all 3.
    You need some way to purify water and a way to carry water . Also need to have a way to cook or boil water .
    Milar Bivy Sack is quick and easy for shelter . Poncho is another must have . It can be used as shelter for your bivy sack .
    .Couple Bandannas .
    Paracord is a must have . Certain meds like Tylenol , advil , allergy , and other pill items .

  13. I would definitely add a first aid kit, life straw, and fire starter. I've also heard of keeping extra keys (house, car, close friends house) incase you lose your main set.

  14. Great video. The walkie talkies are a great idea. Guess I would have to include batteries as I would let them run down when I needed them..ha. I like having a larger hunting knife with a fire starter attached to it with me if you have room. I have a sling shot with ammo as well. Your Medical Kit is way better than mine. I need one of those. Great video Jason.

  15. Nice loadout and good redundancy..Since you are taking suggestions, I'm happy to pitch in a bit:
    portable solar panel(Anker sells a great option), glow-sticks, spoon/fork, bear spray, lifestraw, pair of wool socks, jet boil, coffee, ax, bush-craft knife, folding saw,
    handkerchief(hundreds of practical uses), reading material – perhaps a NT Bible or Pocket constitution? Deck of playing cards, ferrocerium rod, plastic bags, extra ammo for carry gun, knife sharpener, notepad, calories, map of your region, etc.

    These are all of course just friendly suggestions. Those intent and diligent about compiling a legitimate and comprehensive bugout bag will often see it as a journey. Your bag will go through many iterations before it gets to be exactly how you want it(I've had my b.o.b. for years and added a completely new item to it yesterday) There are fundamental items that all b.o.b's should have, but there is no single 'correct' way to set one up, it's all personal preference, your way is the correct way – let your environment dictate the b.o.b. Learn to see it more as a system, rather than a bag with various objects, and you will be in a relatively favourable position should you ever need to deploy it. Good luck!!

  16. I would suggest looking into getting a handheld ham radio and maybe look into getting an operators license. Additionally, I would also look into getting a belt/holster setup and at least a load bearing vest if you aren’t interested in running armor. That way you have easy access to your firearm(s)/ammunition and you’d have more room in your bag for other items.

  17. Definitely some fire starting (bic lighter) water purification tablets and a shelter. A solar charger for phones and flashlights is also a plus.
