Hey guys, I was cleaning out my closet the other day and found my Bug Out Bag in a state of semi-disarray...I need to tighten that bad boy up. I sure would like to hear y'alls perspectives on putting one together. I think I need the main one in the house and a mini kit for the car. What's in your B.O.B.? I know there was a nice thread on this a while back...

DANG! Sorry to hear that about the Jack Hammer. You know that's not really all that much of a bushcraft blade, you need something useful like a SOD or a WarDog. Did you buy that MUK sheath like that or did you do it yourself. It really looks nice with all those holes in it.

rainwalker was kind enough to humor my request for drain holes and drilled those in the sheath. figured the muk would be getting bloody and/or covered in food. wanted to be able to clean the sheath out as eat ad possible. with holes on both sides it actually works great.

but thanks for posting the BOB links! my BOB was delayed by my fishing gear purchases but will be looking at those threads fir guidance.

I thought those links would be good here. Folks won't have to go looking all over the place and there is a LOT of info in those three threads.

I need to start messing with my sheaths and BOB pack again.

I made this thread a sticky as there are always questions about BOB's and GHB's. If any of you come across any other threads I missed send me a PM and I will add them to the post I made with the other three.

I went back in the Outdoors and Fieldcraft section all the way to Dec of 2010 and this it the threads that I thought would apply. Your opinion may vary.

DDD,

I'm the author of most of the linked threads, but don't spend nearly as much time here as I use to. However, if you have specific questions feel free to send me a PM.

Internet service is not available at my home, but I'll periodically check for messages (as my access permits).

Hey guys, I´m wondering: Is there a FEMA advice on BOBs? In Germany there is such a thing. No one cares about it and just about 4% have ever heard of it but it stands since the cold war ended with regular updates...

FEMA and many other emergency managers have guidelines for a 72 hour kit here in the US.

Overall I'm not sure how many people really have them. I am guessing its higher where I live with the constant natural disasters the past few years.

I hear you there WhichDawg. Loosing a knife would be bad enough, but OUR KNIVES and a gun of some kind would be even worse.

I highly recommend keeping a Get Hoem Bag in the trunk but bringing it inside the house at night and into work if you can.

I just recently bought a couple of the 3 day assault packs at London Bridges Trading annual 4th of July sale. Those are some really nice packs and they had a great deal on the on their 4th of July sale and Memorial Day Sale.

I got my buddy one also and I'm putting together one for him with just some basic stuff. I got a ESEE Izula, fire steel, small pry bar, paracord, small AA flashlight and a few other things. I also got a great deal on a ESEE Jungles on blade forums lightly used with sheath. I'm still adding some basic stuff to it. So I'm putting that together for his Christmas present to him. I think he is really going to like it when its completely done.

I agree ESEE does make some nice knives. I was just checking out the Izula and Jungles, they are super nice knives for the money. I sure hope my buddy likes it, but I'm sure he will.
