Everyone has different opinions and thoughts about survival gear, kits, and bug-out bags. There is no perfect BOB for everyone.
But you can make yours much better for you personally by packing the unique items that you want.
7 Unusual Survival Items You Need In Your BOB
Take the edge off the emergency that happened earlier, make sure you pack your cigarettes. They’re not the best idea for long term survival, but if you’re a smoker. Pack em.
If you don’t have any heat or lighting sources after bugging out, carrying beeswax in your bag will at least enable you to make DIY candles. Not the best source for light or warmth, but grants you an adequate amount.
There’s always time for a drink.
You still get a sweet tooth even during a natural disaster. And when the Vodka runs out, candy is a nice replacement.
Poison Ivy Remover
If you’re allergic to poison ivy, you know how much it irritates you.
Notepad and Pencil
Alone in the wilderness and your head will be filled with dozens of good ideas. Have a pen and paper handy so you can write them down.
When bugging out, we need more energy than ever. Pack your favorite energy supplements or drinks like 5-hour energy for the extra charge. I’m addicted to Monster energy drinks, so I pack two of them in my bags.
Do you pack anything weird or strange in your bug-out bags?
