Survival Gear Discussion

What is the difference between a Survival Kit and a Bug Out Bag?

A bug out bag is also known as a 72-hour kit. It is essentially a short term survival kit. It usually contains only a few essential items and must be portable. Water, food, first aid supplies, and communication and signalling devices are a few examples of items required in a bug out bag.

A Survival Kit is a much more long term resource of tools and supplies. Instead of providing the most immediate survival necessities it generally provides tools and supplies that allow you to obtain your survival needs for a longer, more sustaining amount of time. Items in a survival kit may include a knife, shelter, tools for creating fire, and like a bug-out bag, signalling and communication devices.

72 hours, or 3 days, is the average time it takes a search and rescue team (SAR) to find someone. This is why a basic emergency kit or bug out bag is based on 72 hours (3 days).
