Check It Out

If my family were to bug out, probably the first thing we'd do is tear apart this bag of supplies in search of the Xanax and Scotch it does not contain to help calm ourselves down. Luckily, in the event that one of us got lost, injured, or parched in the process, OuttaGEAR's Family Bug Out Bag & Survival Kit does have signal mirrors and whistles, first aid kits and med packs, and Nalgenes and pump filters to mend our meltdown's secondary effects. The 7,300 cubic inch, 17-12" x 16-1/2" Sugpak duffel bag brims with enough fire, first aid, food and food preparation, hygiene, lighting, navigation, warmth, tool, and hydration supplements for a family of 4 to emerge from the wrong end of a disaster safe and intact.
