Urban Bug Out Bag (B.O.B.)

The following project is an effort at creating an Urban Bug Out Bag from the ground up. Each item was highly researched, analytically analyzed and obsessively organized in multiple compartments (or modules). When combined, these individual compartments create an emergency preparedness backpack that could be used for survival purposes in natural and man-made disasters. The project creation was documented on YouTube through a series of videos. Lengthy dialog was conducted amongst other “Preppers” in the YouTube community to help collaborate on the overall design. While the final design is by no means meant to be a “perfect bug out bag”, which is impossible to achieve, it is meant to satisfactorily sustain myself in an emergency for several days in Western Washington state (United States). While the information is this document (and corresponding videos) could theoretically be referenced for other individuals bug out bags, it is specifically designed for my particular needs and region.

WHAT IS AN URBAN BUG OUT BAG?

A BUG OUT BAG is a portable kit that contains the items one would require to survive for seventy-two hours when evacuating from a disaster. The focus is on evacuation, rather than long-term survival, distinguishing the bug-out bag from a survival kit, a boating or aviation emergency kit, or a fixed-site disaster supplies kit.
An URBAN area is characterized by higher population density and vast human features in comparison to areas surrounding it. Urban areas may be cities, towns or conurbations, but the term is not commonly extended to rural settlements such as villages and hamlets.
