Jeesh. Did a quick read of all of the past 7 pages.
Nice read.
Going to start my own BOB with stuff you guys have already listed. Found that only one person (glock) mentioned lightsticks or glowsticks.

Cheap - long lasting. $10 for a 10 pack on amazon.

This 1600 BLACK CASE comes with Pelican’s unique Pick ‘N Pluck foam. This foam is pre-cut which allows you to customize the interior by half inch cubes. Trace out the item you want in the case and simply pluck the foam out by hand, no tool required. You can customize your case in less than 15 minutes.
Prices online range from $119 (with foam) to $200+. Pelican has it for $153.90.

These probably aren't enough for firearms, but if you just want some hard cases with pick-and-pluck here are some lower cost alternatives.

I use my omega vest as a bob.. i have a backpack (carrymor) loaded w/ extra ammo etc, but as my goal in a shtf situation is relocation to my family an cache, i am concentrating on light weight and max firepower if cornered.

Pelican cases are not cut out. They are scored so you can pluck out the area you want. You can also custom order form that is solid that they cut out all the sections for you.

Any details on what you're putting into the BoB?

Since I'm not in a hurricane area, I'm basing mine off a scenario which causes mass panic.

My bag will include:

Ammo for my 9mm & 12 gauge shotgun
First aid kit
Food
A few days clothing
camping stuff - fire starters, ax, small saw
muti tool
hydration bag, purification equipment
lighting - batteries, flashlights, etc

not the best BOB, but i figured if something like this happens, I can resupply.

Also, my plan is to head to my buddy's place about 15 miles from here. He has a cache of guns and ammo. He has a "safe" room which includes 5 safes full of gun of all types and he has one of his garages full of ammo...

Also, this is off the top of my head. So I'm sure I'm missing something.

Great start, but be careful that you don't go overboard planning for unlikely catastrophes and end up overlooking the most likely emergencies that may affect your area.

No, you're not in a hurricane zone but didn't you Texans go a zillion days without rain this year? My sister lives in Houston, she tells me the wildfires crept right up to the city.

Are you prepared to evacuate your home on short notice if a wildfire breaks out? In record breaking drought conditions? EXTRA water, burn cream, eyewash, headlamp, face mask/respirator?

Word on the street is that your drought is expected to last well into next year: LINK.Think hard about stuff you might actually need, then scale up.

I have thought about that.. and Im not prepared for that because I figure if it was a wildfire threat, I would at least have a few hours to prepare/ get out. Then I could always head up the road to Dallas.

^^good info.

If you are looking for a mask or two, look into the 3M N95 or P95 particulate respirator/dust masks. They're very compact and disposable, and affordable. The more advanced cartridge-based respirators are very inexpensive as well, but they take up a lot more bulk. A quick GTFO pack should be as compact and light as possible, IMO. The smaller dust masks like the 95 series are ideal for most uses, to include biological protection from many airborne pathogens like TB, norovirus and the common cold.

^ oh ya. I almost bought one off cheaper than dirt.


$12 but like you said, very bulky. The 3M masks are great. I remember sending a few packs of them back to Taiwan when the bird flu was spreading around down there.. or was it SARS?

There's always some kind of monkey leprosy going on over there... hard to keep track.

I've been looking the lists over and was not seeing some sort of multi-tool listed. I know everyone loves their Leatherman, but what do you think would be the use/weight ratio for repair tools?

I have a 'roadside' bag in my trunk with jumper cables, shop towels, gloves (rubber & leather), multi-tip screwdriver, 12" Cresent, a couple of pairs of Vise-Grips, quart of oil, and some lineman pliers, but that's more for band-aiding a vehicle to get it somewhere safe.
