Urban Survival Bug Out Bag – A pack that’s got your back
By Kento F.
Disasters tend to bring out the best in people. Kindness, generosity, and goodwill are all easily found when people selflessly give of what they have to help those in need. Unfortunately, the opposite is also true. Stress, fatigue, and fear of the unknown play a large role in prompting people to do things that they normally would not do. And this human element is as much an issue as the disaster itself and it is more so in crowded areas. The Census Bureau reports that urban areas account for more than 80 percent of the U.S. population and growing. As more people choose to live in crowded areas, the need to consider other people becomes a larger aspect that needs close attention as they prepare.
Urban Survival Bug out Bag was designed with this challenge in mind. The contents fit inside a black and charcoal backpack with no logo to indicate that it is an emergency kit. It is intended to look like a normal backpack to help you blend in and not draw unwanted attention to you and your supply. Inside the kit is a well thought-out assortment of survival items. They are meant for two people to survive for 72 hours or one person for 144 hours. The food and water included in the kit are U.S. Coast Guard approved with a 5 year shelf life, which are followed by important items for shelter, first aid, water purification, hygiene, as well as light and communication. With all of the items included, the pack weighs only 15 pounds. Simply stated, Urban Survival Bug out Bag really is a pack that’s got your back!
