Bug Out Bags

This week Mike and I finally talk about  Bug Out Bags. We discuss some pitfalls by newbies to survival. I begin with the philosophy used to build all my kits. I use the 10 c’s of survival to build my kits. Those being Cutting, Combustion, Cover, Container, Cordage, Candle, Cotton, Compass, Cargo Tape and Canvas Needle.

The biggest priority being on your Survival knife. All others can be crafted in the wild. Making a good knife in the bush is not an easy task.


Mike goes over the contents of his Bug Out Bags in it’s entirety.

  1. I started looking at the survival culture and lifesfyle from a series of videos called Patrolling, hosted by an ex Canadian military man named Sean Kennedy. They are easily found online. His videos on bug out bags show his system, which in my opinion is way too big, but he does cover the basics and then some. My favorite cheap survival knife is the Glock field knife, which can be found online or at gun shows for around $30. It is the issue knife of the German and Austrian military, so its “street cred” is definitely there. I would also like to add that I think weight and stealth are the two most overlooked qualities of a bug out bag. You don’t want to overload it with so much gear or have a bunch of crap hanging off of it, it just draws attention to yourself and makes you a target. It also makes it ungainly to carry around, nobody moves that fast with fifty pounds of gear hanging off of them.

  2. A lot of the C’s may need repairing. Besides needle and small tough cord how about some VERY SUPER GLUE. I don’t mean the brand; I mean the degree of durability, adhesive strength, waterproof, fast setting time.

    In fact how about you folks out there sending follow up suggestions. Please be clear about brand, product and what is superior or not good. Personally, I don’t like Gorilla Glue as it will not close air tight and then it is hard the next time you need it. Elmer’s # 765 makes a great bonding and filling product for certain applications. A damn good adhesive will not take much room or weigh much.

  3. After thinking about this episode a little more, have you’s guys looked at or considered a multi teir bug out bag system? I personally like a three teir system. The first teir is not much more than your EDC (every day carry) being made up of your self defense item, a small knife, flashlight, lighter, pen, snacks, water pouch, etc. These items could be carried in a small pouch in your cargo pants, or fanny pack, or purse, etc. Level two is a day pack you keep in your car or at work, if possible. This teir expands upon the first, including things you would need to get back home, like a real water bottle, one full meal, a multi tool, small first aid kit, a change of clothes, rain coat, tarp, cordage, etc. Third teir would build upon the first two, and is to be kept at home. This bag has your hardcore survival stuff like small tent, sleeping bag, cooking supplies, water filtration, expanded first aid, etc. By using this system you can have appropriate levels of preparedness on you at all times without carrying everything but the kitchen sink weighing down your everyday life.
