Survival kits and backpacks for taking your gear with you are probably some of the first survival items that new preppers acquire. That's probably the wisest move to make since with a good survival kit you have what you need to survive both at home and away from home.
Survival kits come in a variety of sizes, with a wider variety of essentials in each kit. Some have the absolutely base necessities, while others include the basics in addition to some gear designed to provide more comfort. Choosing the right kit for you and each member of your family can be a difficult decision, but we want to make it a bit easier.
You might find that you want to create your own survival kits, and the starting point is a good backpack.
Once you have your backpack, then you start adding in the gear that you need to survive in any situation. You might find when building your own survival kit that you already have some gear already. But for those items you don't have or haven't considered yet, take a look at these:
Before you start building your own survival kit, make sure you compare the price for a ready-to-go kit and one you build yourself with the same items. In many cases, you will find that the complete kits are actually cheaper than building your own from scratch.
While it’s true some preppers scour yard sales and second hand stores, remember if disaster strikes, you’ll be relying on this equipment to save your life – and buying new should give you that piece of mind.
Being prepared means being ready to go at a moment’s notice. Imagine, for a moment, that your home is about to be struck by a storm or tornado.
Think of what might happen if there’s an airborne toxin that’s headed your way, or if you have to evacuate for any number of other reasons. You’ll need to have your bag packed and ready to go.
Preppers often compare what’s in their bug-out bags, but you should also be comparing the bags, themselves. ReadyStore has a great variety of comfortable, technical backpacks and survival kits for sale to better prepare you if you have to leave in a hurry.
If you need to leave in a hurry, it won’t matter how well you’ve packed your bag if you can’t carry it comfortably for long periods of time. You never know when you might run out of gas and have to hoof it for a while. You definitely don’t want a rolling suitcase if you’re going to have to tromp through the woods.
