If you’re looking for the best bug out bags for sale, you’ve come to the right place! We reviewed a variety of premade bug out bags to find 10 of the best that will help you survive major emergencies like earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, and other natural disasters in your area. Before you invest in a pre-packed bug out bag, here are some important features to consider first, so you can choose the right bag to meet your particular needs.
People: Each bag is rated for a specific number of people, so we let you know how many each bag is made for. Also, we tell you if the bags come in other options to find the right one for you.
Hours: In addition to the number of people a bag is rated for, each bag is built to last a certain amount of time. This has to do with the rations each bag has available for food, water, and energy usage.
Bag Type: The type of bag you choose will have to do with how you want to carry it. Many of the bags we reviewed were backpacks, which are a great hands-free option, but we also found some great sling bags, too!
Weight: Weight is incredibly important to consider, especially if you think you’ll need to hike or climb to safety in an emergency. A heavier bag may have more convenient equipment, but a lighter bag is easier to throw on and go.
Size: When thinking about size, consider what you’ll feel most comfortable wearing on your back all day long. Also, if you plan to store your bag in a small space like your car trunk, make sure to measure before you buy!
Includes Water: We also let you know if each bug out survival kit comes with pre-packaged water to keep you and your family hydrated during an emergency. If it doesn’t, we’ll let you know what alternatives they provide to access safe water.
Now that you know more about what complete bug out bag kits have to offer, let’s get into the reviews! We found great options for a family bug out bag, vehicle bug out bag, or a good bug out bag to keep at home during power outages.
