Shelter

The Shelter Compartment falls into the “Big 3″ items of my Urban BOB: Food, Water and Shelter. It is extremely important to have protection from the elements and have a warm dry place to sleep. In a rural situation, I would have dedicated more weight to this particular compartment and included a tent and full size sleeping bag. However in an urban setting, where there is often more concrete than woods, I decided to go with a minimalist approach. In the majority of my bug out destinations, I will most likely have access to a house, shed, abandoned building, overpass or other permanent structure. Due to these reasons, I decided to dedicate more weight to an item such as an ultralight cot instead of something like a full size tent. I will be including a tent in Mrs. Urban Prepper’s bug out bag and will have a full size sleeping bag as an optional item to possibly add to the Urban BOB if deemed necessary in an emergency.
