This Amazon bug out bag list has items for men, women and children. Pick and choose what works best for you. This list is a beast, no lie.

It is way too much for one bag and is not intended to all go into one bag. Some of these items are not necessities.

Make a list with needs and some wants. Identify the needs. Prioritize the wants. If you have room you may add some of the wants, or you may choose to keep your pack as light as possible.

The Amazon Bug Out Bag List

First, we must talk about the bag. What kind of bag do you need? How many people are you packing for?

We have a main bag, that’s huge, and then everyone has a personal bag. Since dad will carry the main bag, his personal bag will not come with us. It will also depend on where we are because our personal bags stay in the cars we drive, and the big bag is at home.

This big bag means more fire power, more food, more first aid, and cooking supplies. I’m going to list several bags, some for the big bag, medium bags for adults and medium bags for kids.

The Big Bag – This is a great bag with lots of room. It is pretty comfortable to wear even loaded down.

Medium Adult Bags – These are 3-day assault bags. They have straps to compress the load which is great for your back.

Kids backpack – this one also has a hydration pack which might come in handy.

Compression Packing Cubes – These little cubes are great for a big bag. One thing about having a big bag is that you may have to pull out several things before you can reach anything at the bottom.

Using these cubes can help organize your bug out bag!

Backpack Rain Cover – These will come in handy, keeping your pack and all the contents dry.

Food | Amazon Bug Out Bag

3600 Calorie Food Bars – This is my favorite option. Affordable, somewhat…not too heavy, the amount of nutrition seems fair. Although, you will want some real food.

Look for places to fish hunt and forage! Save your emergency food for when you have nothing else.

Emergency food bars for the Amazon bug out bag list

Freeze Dried Food – Just to show an example of what else you could pack, but they are not cheap and in order to have enough in a bug-out situation they would take up too much space.

These would, however, be much tastier! Having one in your bag could raise morale possibly on a hard day.

Mountain House food products for the Amazon bug out bag list

Survival Tabs – I have never tried them, but the serving on this is 12, at 180 tabs in a bottle, meaning there are only about 15 servings.

Plus, for being lightweight and 2 week+ supply, but the downside is that you are eating tabs. They could be a good back up plan if you do not find water to fish in, or an animal to hunt or plants and bugs to eat.

Kitchen/Cooking

Sunflair Mini Solar Oven – Great size and it is lightweight! No smoke to deal with! The pans are fairly lightweight also. I wouldn’t carry this in a bug out bag, but it would be a great idea to have this at your destination. 😉

This list is never-ending. You must pick must-haves. Pick a couple of wants. Come back to the list in a couple of days, and cross some items off the list by prioritizing.

It will help if you read articles about packing a bug out bag. A knife is probably the most essential tool aside from knowledge.

Yes, knowledge. If you cannot identify any edible plants or build a fire, skin an animal, etc…you may be in trouble.
