Escape & Evade SHTF / Bug Out Bag
Which are the "best", most critical items needed in the event of a natural disaster, SHTF scenario, zombie apocolypse, etc? We at deltaoutdoorsman.com have put together a collection of setups in a backpack or sling pack that can help you "survive" a 72hr. scenario where major & civic services are disrupted and where you could possibility be fending for yourself until aid arrives. This is not a complete setup in the sense that what is included here is all you need. Far from it, I think the general consensus is that each "SHTF/Bug Out Bag" should be customized by each owner based on their geographic location, most likely situation, etc. This sling pack & included gear covers your basic necessities of light, shelter, fire starting ability, first aid, and water purification. From there, you can add what you consider other necessities.
We started putting together this kit together with the thought that not everybody wants to use a backpack as host for their Bug Out gear. Sling bags, with their single strap design, have grown in popularity over the years and there are numerous different models out there which offer the size, layout, & durability needed for a "Bug Out" situation. After reviewing some of the market's different offerings, the Fox Advanced Tactical Sling Pack has been chosen as the host for the "Escape & Evade" Bug Out Bag for the following reasons:
--single sling design, allows the user full range of motion
--segmented layout with numerous "molle" webbing points for you to add accessories, pouches, etc.;
--lightweight design that can be adjusted to fit a man, woman or child;
--durable zippers & material that should resist well the hazards of being thrown in & out of vehicles, bounced around in on an ATV, and water resistant in damp weather (note: NOT water proof, you'll need to cover it in a downpour);
--the survival & first aid items as part of this kit fit within the exterior pockets, leaving the main cargo section completely unused for you to add your personal gear;
