What’s In My Bag?

what's in my bugout bagIf there is one question I get asked a lot, it's "What's in my bag?".

What's In My Bag?

The last thing the world needs is another bug out bag post, but I am constantly asked "What's in your bag, Geek?". I figured the best way to deal with this was to just tackle it head on and have a post that covers my gear. This post gets updated when that gear changes. My bag is an ever-evolving collection of gear. It contains the the stuff that has proven itself, up to this point, to be best in breed, for my needs. When I find something better, develop new techniques, or if something reveals itself to be lacking, then I'll update this post for the world to see.

My Bag

My current bug out bag (I camp with this also, it's so much more than just an idle bag) is a High Sierra 75 liter, internal frame backpack. This bag won't be for everybody, and I understand that. Use the bag that works for you, this one just happens to work for a big guy like me.

My bag may be a bit beefier than some of yours, as I have 3 daughters. Even though they have their own bug out gear and bags, that can subsist independently, I prefer to carry some extra gear to make our bug out a bit more comfortable and effective.

  1. Thanks for the list. I am constantly checking and re-checking my bag. It’s as if once packed my mind is saying “make sure the [stuff] is still there”
