A question from Smoke D.
I’m not quite physically fit yet, so I’m concerned about how much weight that I can carry versus how far I can walk, and I’m sure those numbers have a range where they affect one another.
What is in your lightest possible bug-out bag? What purpose does each item serve? What items are a little more optional for both inclusion and exclusion? What type of scenario are you imagining; how long and what environment? And what do you expect the environment to provide along the way?
Bonus question: what backpacks would make decent bug-out bags? Where could I find a sturdy bag that perhaps sacrifices padding to be lighter?
