are a lot of things that people pack in their bug out bags for survival
and sometimes even for comfort. Unfortunately, you can’t have
everything because you can only carry so much.
A lot of people throw around weights like “no
more than 50-60 pounds” or “no more than 25% of your body weight.” The
truth is, unless you’ve done a LOT of hiking with weights that large,
you’ll end up wearing yourself out in short order, and even if you make
it to your destination, you’ll most likely be too tired to do anything
once you get there.
Also, if you find yourself in trouble along the
way, moving that much weight quickly can be so difficult you may have to
drop your gear exactly when you don’t want to. By using techniques
learned from ultralight thru-hikers, you can cut down on the weight of
your pack without sacrificing the gear you need. Here’s how to do it,
along with a full packing list.

A while ago I wrote an article called 50 Items You Forgot To Put In Your Bug Out Bag.
Several readers complained, saying things like, “How the hell am I
supposed to fit all this stuff in my bug out bag?” Well, you’re not. The
point of the article is to tell people about any items they would have
included but either forgot about or hadn’t considered yet.
Every bug out bag should be 100% unique. Sure, there are some
basic items that every bug out bag should have (food, lighter, water
filter, flashlight, etc.), but you should customize your bag based on
where you live, what type of disaster is most likely to occur in your
area, and how much weight you can carry over a long distance. Many
preppers forget about that last point.
If your bag is so heavy
that you can’t carry it more than a few miles, you’ll have to ditch some
of the items, anyway. And what’s going to happen if you have to run
from attackers, jump walls, and climb fences? Having a bag that’s too
heavy could get you killed. Ideally, a bug out bag should weigh about
15% of your body weight, assuming you’re in decent shape. 20% of your
body weight should be the absolute maximum.
