If you’ve spent even a little time learning about preparedness and survival, you’ve no doubt come across the “ultimate” list of bug out bag supplies. Lists like this are all over the Internet, and many of them are very good. But if you read too many of these lists, you’ll be tempted to get more bug out bag items than you actually need.
The reason this matters is because you don’t want your bug out bag to be too heavy. Remember, you’re going to have to carry this for the better part of a day, several days in a row or longer. If you have a bag that weighs more than 20% of your body weight, then even if you’re in good shape you’re gonna have trouble reaching your destination. To make sure this doesn’t happen to you, here are some things you probably don’t need in your bug out bag.
